Intermediate Football Championship 2018

I feel that it’s a coin toss between St Brigids and Shannonbridge.
Watch out for Ballycommon, they could pose a real threat to their respective charges.

Brigids & Shannonbridge will be favs. Ballycommon & Ferbane are the dark horses.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it appears that Johnson was the main reason why Ferbane were there, thereabouts.

When Daingean get going, they’re tough to stop. They’ve some quality footballers in the 2 Hayes brothers and Tierney.

Don’t know much of Clonbullogue: they’ve O’Brien, and I think McEvoy is the other lads name that were/are on minor and now u21 panels.

Doon:seemed to recover well, after last year under Curran, who supposedly came with hefty ‘expenses’ claims.

Tullamore:who knows???

Ferbane = Minus - Johnson will be senior, Plus - They still have very good lads coming up.
Daingean = Plus - Tierney and 2 X Hayes Minus - They depend on them too much. always lots of 'ifs' about Daingean.
Doon = look at last year, no wins in league yet ended up in semis of championship. Jeckyl & Hyde?
Clonbullogue = Need to get the younger players to step up, a bit of rebuilding going on. Possibles.
Ballycommon = Bounce effect from winning Junior, but a step up in class.
Tullamore = As you say, who knows? Typical 2nd Town team.

They all still have to match Brigids & The Bridge.

Interesting. Appears to be unfair on junior clubs.

I must apologise, I had to add KK to the poll, thus making the previous poll null and void

I would just like to correct for the record that Shane Curran absolutely did not come up with any ' hefty expenses' claim. What he was paid was agreed in full at the beginning with no variance nor no 'extras' were asked for.

What he asked for was also very reasonable.
