Club Football 2021

If it was proposed to cover the cost of some of the training courses at a club meeting, most clubs wouldn't allow it but fork out Hundreds of euros every week to outsiders. An Irish Solution to an Irish problem. I would go as far as to say that if an outsider was willing to take on a managers job for nothing, they wouldn't be considered or looked at less favourably. Crazy the situation we have gotten the GAA into. Spilt season should help reduce the running costs, but with everyone looking over the neighbours fence I wouldn't hold my breath. Can hear the conversations already "their back training 3 times a week we should be aswell" and the gravy train for the few keeps on bleeding struggling GAA communities dry.

Club football in Monaghan has been quite poor in recent times, in comparison to 15 years ago. I look at the three premier winners this year and I doubt they'll be adding to much value to the county set up other than what is already there.

That's a very sweeping comment. Monaghan has 29 Clubs and always compete well in Ulster competition whoever wins the Championship at different levels. There is a lot of talented young players coming through the Schools and Development Squads as well. I wouldn't be too downhearted on Monaghan football.

Replying To latefortraining:  "Gary played very little last year. Suffering with back trouble. James had a bad knee injury and missed most of the season. James is a fittness instructor so I assume the plan is he will cover the training he won't be playing himself until August at the earliest. Toome were the only team to get anywhere close to aughnamullen last year. If the can their ducks in a row they won't be far away."
Gary Wilson still going to play the other two brothers Colin and Damien and Stephen Quinn over toome some rows in that house

Reports this morning that the Monaghan Senior team broke GAA rules by training together like Dublin. Supposedly training in Corduff. Any thoughts on this?

So the county team have been training without the knowledge of the county chairman, secretary and other executives. We're expected to believe the same about Dublin. Teams in the six counties can train from Monday. We're supposed to be a 32 county organisation.

Just a thought from monday. What's to stop a monaghan club team on the border going into South Tyrone, fermanagh or Armagh to train at their neighbours club facilities. All the clubs would need is a waver from their players that any injuries won't be covered and any activities you partake in you do at your own risk. Aughaloo, culloville, adrumsee, Donagh, derrynoose, Middletown am sure could oblige.

It's a weeks head start for Northern County teams plus the GAA have said that county teams only permitted to start training from 19th either side of border but doubt much notice be paid to that.

Same championship structure as last year not starting until inter County is finished . Reserve league supposedly starting first. No word on
leagues for junior intermediate or senior teams. Very poor work by our county board. No discussion or consultation with clubs with regard to what they want to do. We will have a situation that from mid May adult teams will be back training and the majority of player won't play a competition game until the end of August. There is no reason a single league can't be run off without the country players with promotions only no relegation. But as usual because a few senior clubs with too much say at ccc level it won't happen. There has certainly been too long of a season with the monaghan club scene. With a typical league running from March to late October with too many games at the later end of the season being fortited . Single league finished before the championship is the best solution.

Solve it. If your ideas are so popular put yourself forward via your club for a Co Board position or Co Committee. Dont be a hurler on the ditch.
