That's unbelievable.

Fermanagh played well in the first half.
The goal was a killer.  We should have been well in front at half time.
Second half Monaghan played very well.
They have an excellent bench and once we got 5 or 6 behind the heads dropped.
When you think that Fermanagh are missing 20 players from the panel that togged out against Dublin in the
All Ireland quarter final 2 years ago it wasn't a bad effort.
No county can afford that turnover of players inside 2 years, never mind one with the limited resources we have.

According to the Irish Mirror McCluskey is the longest serving intercounty player who has played championship.
Himself and Breheny both made their debuts against each other in the league in 2000.
Breheny started while McCluskey came off the bench.

Here's the link to the article

What age is Ryan McCluskey now??

36 I think .  I believe he is the longest serving intercounty player left

I have never been as pessimistic or even lacking in enthusiasm about Fermanagh's opening Ulster Championship match. Don't get me wrong, I'll be there on Saturday evening and will get wrapped up in the atmosphere and positivity will probably grow from there but in the run-up to the game it is quite clear what the outcome will be. We have been hit by injurys, travelling and retirements and although this happens to most teams on a yearly basis it will always effect Counties like Fermanagh more than others. This, coupled with the dismal end to the league campaign has left the general feeling of dread amongst supporters and most are just hoping we don't get hammered. Monaghan are a seasoned team with sprinklings of real talent throughout the team plus they have a top class manager.

The line-up looks ultra defensive with an emphasis on a lot of pace on the counter attack. This could work well if McManus can be kept quiet and Monaghan become frustrated. Our main difficulty this year has been how easy we have been to play against and score goals against. If this has not been rectified since the end of the league then it could be a long hard evening for players and supporters alike.

Anyway, I will be head off to Clones on Saturday in the hope that we can provide another shock but most definitely not in expectance of this outcome.

Have you forgotten 2004 when we played Tyrone in the first round after we had lost most of the panel from the previous year?
Turned out all right that year as I recall.

Ultimatemania, sportsmania and sportsnation had major issues.
The football games could only be watched by using a VPN.
When the football was on the rest of their stations were down.
Seems to have been a court case that is forcing the major broadband companies to take action.
After the football was over all stations were fully working again .
The mods of the mania stations say they have a work around which will be in place for next season.
The VPN is a pain but they still work.

Long term I would say if you want to watch via IPTV then you will have to have a good VPN.

Anywhere that would be showing the Fermanagh v Monaghan match in Saturday evening in Kilkenny?

We are missing 7 starters from last year.  Lads away travelling, couple retired and Jones and Ruairi Corrigan are both injured.
We had a disappointing league campaign.  Should have stayed up but somehow let a woeful Derry team beat us.
We have shipped goals all year and have been very poor defensively.
When you look at the scoring threat that Monaghan have then it's not looking good for us.
Hopefully Pete has a rabbit in the hat because we certainly owe Monaghan one but Malachy will know the Fermanagh boys inside out and I am sure a weeks training in Portugal will have helped Monaghan no end.

Barton's issue is that Derry have a friendly with Westmeath this weekend. He has picked a 24 man panel that is due to play it.

Hope it goes a bit better than the friendly with Monaghan went

UltimateMania is run by the same crowd that does Sportsmania but does the rest of the channels as well plus the Sport. 75 for the year and the quality is great as long as you have good broadband.  The 1080p streams for the Sport are excellent at the moment. I run it through the Amazon FireTV and absolutely no bother.

As for as TV guide, the only one that works seems to be OnTapp but its a bit of a pain and I have never bothered to set it up.

Yeah we have an S-Max 2.0 TD. Great car with loads of room though the two seats in the boot don't have much leg room for an adult.
When you put down all the back seats it's like a wee van and I've managed to get loads of stuff in there including a 13 foot trampoline.

Haven't had much trouble with it except for a flywheel which was covered under the 2 year warranty
I bought it over in England back in 2012.
Had to cover the inside alarm sensors with tape as every time I left the kids in the car to pop into the shop the alarm would go off.

Fuzzman did you buy the car yourself or did you get somebody to source one and bring it over ?

Sean Quigley. Perhaps he'll be appreciated in retirement.

Rory Gallagher  is the best Fermanagh man I have seen.
Still holds the scoring record for an individual in the Ulster Championship.
He scored 3-9 against Monaghan .
