Armagh should have no bother here - will win with a good bit to spare. Other two matches will be a different challenge.

Good game for Armagh to get going again after their devastating defeat in the Ulster final. I hope they go for a more positive attitude after dragging Derry down into an arm wrestle at Clones. They have some really good attacking players and they should try to play to those strengths.

It needs to be way more subtle than that. Not saying WUMs arenít allowed but if you want to get some traction then you need to show a bit more guile than that. Poor effort.

Westmeath were very disappointing in the league. They never kicked on after winning the Tailteann.

Any injury concerns for Armagh ahead of this game?

Will be interesting to see the crowd in attendance on Saturday evening given the demand for Ulster Final tickets  ::)

Two weird comments about Armagh fan numbers in this thread.

Armagh will bring a very big crowd to this. Naturally it won't match the demand of an Ulster final.

Armagh will get over this one easy enough. Fans or no fans. Nice fixture to get rid of any hangover from the Ulster Final.
Can't see them being troubled by Westmeath.

Regardless of this fixture, there will certainly be a scramble for tickets for the next game in Omagh.

Looking like a great weather forecast for Saturday, no major soccer events on TV, should be a big crowd.

The GAA should have offered 3 game packages for tickets. A lot of people will want to go to Tyrone and a prospective game against Galway as well as this one. If they had sold 10,000 3 game packages in Armagh it would have ensured an Armagh crowd in Omagh.
A sunny day should bring out a crowd and it may be the start of a hard group for Westmeath. Even Donegal showed that a bottom of Div 1 team is still well above a Div 3 one.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

A three game package would have been a good idea alright.  I am for the game at the weekend. To bring my family to all 3 will cost 180 quid, excluding travel costs.

Hard enough for Armagh supporters to pick themselves up again after the Ulster final never mind the players.  But a big crowd this weekend would be a good boost for the team.
That's just, like your opinion man.
