Armagh.

Hopes - To win Ulster and do well in Division 1.

Expectations - I expect to remain in division 1 and see how the year goes from there.  We dont have the defence to be truly competitive unless we see some huge progression in the league.

Got half of my hopes anyway.  There was some huge progression in the league and i think our squad actually found belief in themselves at the top table. My only real expectation was to remain in Div1.

I'd expect Ulster next year.
Think our defence improved a helluva lot, Greg McCabe settled at 6 could be key next year

Yeah it certainly did.  I certainly didnt see McCabe stepping forward as a quality 6 or Jarly Óg as a very effective half back.

Did you predict Ethan Rafferty as a goalie? I didn't see that one coming.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Hope
Promotion, Connacht Title, reach AI semi final. Also at least 1 Connacht underage Title.
Expectation
With a load of new players being tried out staying in D2. Lose Connacht Final and 50/50 if we make Qtr Finals. Competitive in Connacht Minor and U20.
1 out of 4 "Hopes"
1 exceeded expectation, 1 "achieved", 3 failed.
So a poor year overall :-\
Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

2022 should see us being hounded by referees, metally and [physically tired after the 21 exertions,  loads of players sent off, anti Tyrone negative commentary and too much partying leaving teams like Armagh and Derry half a chance which they may exploit as a one off...leading to a return of formidable powers in 2023.

Dublin's hopes for 2023 will greatly improve with the news that Paul Mannion & Jack McCaffrey will rejoin Dublin squad.
