Hopefully we should have too much for Westmeath at home. Defeat like the other day can see us react one of 2 ways, we could go out and blow them away or we could go out and struggle. Definitely not a team to be taken lightly. Should be a fair crowd in Armagh for kt

A win and it should be 3rd at the very least in the group. Did draw with Westmeath in the last meeting three years ago, a match Armagh led 1-12 to 0-7 at half time.

Really can't see complacency being an issue in a group where if we did manage to lose this we would be putting ourselves under extraordinary pressure. Wouldn't it be nice to be going to Omagh with points on the board & hopefully Tyrone under a bit of pressure from a mauling in Galway.

Good game to get going again with the added advantage of it being at home. Don't think a match 3 years ago bears much relevance to this years match. We have 3 years in division one under our belt now and are considerably better than then. If we get the win under our belt early then we are simply playing for positioning in the group. The fixtures are in the order we would have wanted given that we could be playing Tyrone after them facing a tough trip to Galway.

I'm sure the Westmeath ones are glad this isnt the other way around eh... https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/armagh-gaa-fans-accused-of-horrendous-behaviour-at-westmeath-match/35971686.html

It's a game most in Armagh would expect us to win.  Armagh do very little without making it a challenge though.

Can we expect the same scramble for tickets for the BOX-IT Athletic Grounds for this game from the best-supported team in Ireland?

Similar result and performance to the first 3 games would be nice. Donít think they are any better than Cavan or Down.

They are not better than Cavan or Down and are going to get it tough in that group, especially after Galway and Armagh beat Tyrone and have them needing the points on the last round.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Their results this season would suggest that they are probably inferior to Cavan and on a par or worse than Down. They finished below both in division three though they did beat Cavan to win the Tailteann Cup last season. Their manager left them after that and I think they appear to have gone backwards since then based on results.

The biggest danger is that we could be a bit flat after the Ulster final defeat although we had a similar scenario facing into the Antrim match having suffered relegation and it was a good match to get back on the horse.

Yeah agreed thatís my fear as well, Westmeath a good bit better than Antrim and Sunday was a lot more devastating than relegation. Heslin a very good player for them
