A diktat to referees to work to rule when teams are taking the piss like that would help. Every time Kilkenny got the ball in that period he took a minimum 6 steps. Most players hit 5 steps without getting called up which is fair enough as it would destroy the game and a referee has to employ common sense but when the piss is taken like that something has to be done.

So five steps, which is illegal, is fair enough but 6 is taking the piss ? OK

Very disappointing to see Dublin play that shtye for the last 10 mins.   I'm getting g fed up with football, time to bring in some changes before the entire entertainment aspect disappears...

More disappointing from Donegal not trying to press them I would say

Bullshit, itís rank to watch. The object of the game is to attack and score not play keep ball in midfield.

The object of the game is to score more than your opponents. Dublin done that

After the abuse I have taken on here since expressing an opinion contrary to the KKMcG club I feel entitled to be a little sarcastic.

What abuse have you got?

Well spoken , self elected president and spokesman for Armagh core support , if you donít go to a McKenna cup match you have no opinion !
What about the thousands who wonít go because they vote with their feet !

Thatís not what he/she said. And youíve a cheek calling someone else self elected spokesman for Armagh support

Was in gym today in Westpark Tallaght and Tom Parsons was doing a bit of gym work. Hopefully we will see him back in action next year.

If he even plays for his club in 2019 it will be a miracle.

Yes, the silence on his recovery and his date of return, tell it's own story. A public forum is not the place to discuss this matter.

Why? People genuinely want to see him back playing and would like to know how he is doing in his recovery

That I cannot answer because I donít know who is available or interested, I do think it is too much for one man and think we would need a management team with experts in the areas of S&C , fitness , tactics , coaching and analysis , nutrition , logistics and physio , all egos parked at the door and leave anyone looking huge expenses on the lucrative club circuit . Not a case of what can Armagh do for me but what can I do for Armagh !!!

In an ideal world who would you like in?

Hughes McKay Morgan
McCabe Donaghy Sheilds
Vernon Sheidan
Forker Grugan Grimley
Clarke Murnin Campbell



Based on the players that could reasonably be expected to be available a match day 26 (with a view to a fresh broom) could look something like this:

Morgan  McKay  Burns
McIlroy  Connell Shields
Rafferty / Grimley
O OíNeill  Grugan  Forker
McParland  Murnin  Campbell

R OíNeill
J Duffy
Either a Vernon / Donaghy

There are a number of other notable absentees from this list, so there is def a talent pool of at lest 30 guys across the county who could make us a very competitive outfit.

Iíd have Paul Hughes starting. And as tough as it would be on P Burns, he loses his place to Morgan. A fit Sheridan starts in midfield also

I really can't understand why anyone would want to remove McGeeney after promotion and nearly getting to back-to-back AIQFs. Armagh are firmly in the top ten now with a young panel.

Iím not sure we are top ten to be honest. We would be there or there abouts. His record in Ulster is awful and is one reason why people want him out. The players who are unavailable are another reason, a ridiculous one I reckon tho.

Caolan Rafferty
Ethan Rafferty
James Morgan
Declan McKenna
Oisin O'Neill
Ciaran O'Hanlon
Stefan Campbell
Jamie Clarke

At least 6 of those players should be in the starting 15 for Armagh and would significantly strengthen the side so McGeeney is playing with a weakened hand. There may be others also that I have excluded but can't think of. Given the players that he is missing I think he done as well as could be expected as any manager this season. The question is why are those players not playing for the county team?

To the best of my knowledge all players bar Morgan, McKenna, Campbell and O'Neill are unavailable due to injury or are travelling abroad. McKenna I don't understand, he has been up among the best club players in the county consistently for the last 4/5 years but has never really had a decent chance at county level. Morgan too is a great defender at club level but has never consistently produced at county level whilst Campbell after one brilliant year a few years back when he was arguably one of the top forwards in Ireland, appears to have gone backwards since then largely due to lack of committment. O'Neill is still young and it is still unclear if he will be a county level footballer but he certainly has the potential to do so. I don't know the exact reason why these players have not committed but I reckon that McGeeney reckons they have been influenced by people surrounding them. He might not be far wrong. That said, it is their right to choose not to play county football if they so wish but the county team is weaker without them.


I disagree regarding Morgan. Think he was our best defender last year. Also wasnít he due to come back after his travels but got injured?
