Monaghan have full control of this final and six ahead at half time. .

Why did Donegal keep Declan Bonner on for yet another year? They have a pick as good as any team in Ulster however won't get close to reaching their potential with Bonner in charge.

Donít think this game has much relevance to anything, but based on Championship itís a very fair question.

Felt it was time for a change after last season myself, so not expecting much this season. If it goes as the past few had I expect it to be his last.

Donegal go down fighting in a match they were poor for 3 quarters. FT Monaghan 1-11 Donegal 0-13.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Interesting at end Beggan wasted a full minute taking the free yet ref made no allowance. Is he not allowed to account for time wasted like that?

How long was the ball in play for during the three minutes of injury time? Surely the ref had to add a bit of time on.

Between Monaghan's final free, as well as the checking of Donegal's forward mark, up ball, and subsequent free from Murphy, there was precious little football played in those injury time minutes.

I donít think he has been the same player since the knee injury. Lost a bit of pace.

That ref isn't fit for purpose, perhaps his stature is an impediment, though he's only one in a long line of refs who falls for the McHugh simulation, as blatant as the 3 card trick.

Unless the ref deems it to be deliberate time wasting, the clock keeps ticking.

Another great way to wind down the clock is to get booked. Clock doesnít stop while the ref is asking for your name and issuing the card.
Anyone who watches ladies football regularly will have seen these and noted the clock counting down.

Up to the ref to enforce, sadly it rarely is enforced. If there is 4 minutes of extra time how can anyone justify taking 25%of that time up for 1 free kick. Adding on the wasted time would soon stop it
