There was a lot a talk about Armagh being high scorers. I think today showed that there is a big difference between division three defence and a division two defence (even a bad one).

Armagh scored highly in a couple of freak games in Division 3.  Against Antrim, when Antrim deployed the blanket defence, it was clear to all in attendance that this Armagh team just can't get through the blanket defence, and that was shown again yesterday.  No doubt that Armagh have some good forwards, but in the modern game, good forwards are more easily kept quiet unfortunately.

The only thing that can save Kieran McGeeney now is a good run for Armagh in the Qualifiers, maybe a quarter final spot might save him, but that looks a long way off going by yesterday.

balladmaker
think to most of us Mc Geeney is a dead man walking, the term has run its course
no championship wins in 3 years
one relegation
haven`t beaten Laois in 5 attempts( they are now a division 4 side)
putting it simply the past 3 years have seen no upward graph nor seeds of optimism,
yesterday was awful watching us naively run into traffic.

Kildare recovered from McGeeney. Armagh will too
He hasn't gone away you know!! Nor will he if he's on the dough that's been mentioned!
Guys
Mc geeney is not on anything near the money that is being quoted here.tbh some club managers are on more than he is .
Saying that though it time for a fresh start.
Think we may have a crossmaglen duo next year

Extremely poor
Manager has to take responsibility for this one
2 points from play in the second half
Just just awful
He should do the sensible thing after today

Fair enough smurfy
Really can't see you scoring enough to win this
If you had been more attack minded could have seen you getting  a few goals.
But hopefully it's a decent game for both of us

Looks like the Mourne men going with two sweepers and Doherty to pick up murnin for the high ball
It wont be pretty and it looks like Armagh will have to go down the wings to make in roads.
The straight shoot out we thought would happen must have been just wishful thinking

Armagh Facebook page names their team as B Hughes, Morgan, Vernon, P Hughes, McKay, Donaghy, Shields, Sheridan, Grimley, Forker, O'Neill, Grogan, Clarke, Campbell, Murnin.

Looks like a decent set of forwards.

I'm starting to feel sorry for Down already.
Down will be well prepared for this game
Hopefully it's open and enjoyable

It matters for bragging rights in Newry,but those of us with longer memories will weep at how far both these counties are from the summit with little prospect of returning any time soon.
Interesting comments Tony.
We had 7 good years from 1999 before that we were mediocre
As an Armagh man I remember 1982-1999 whenever every season we started in hope but ended in despair
I remember down hammering us of the gate in 1992
Derry doing the same in the 90s before the two Brian's took charge
So for me Sunday counts, we have a decent group of committed players and the football has been good to watch.
If we can close the defence we will have a forward line that will do real damage.assuming we win we can then work towards the next game.

The winner of this could make the Ulster final as I think Cavan will beat Monaghan
We are division 2 use are division 3 Tony so don't tar us with that brush
Down are in a decent position where as Armagh are where they belong division 3
Can't see us getting beat especially with the game in Newry
Galway hammered Armagh by 13 points last week so things are not good
Down team I would like to see
Cunningham
Mcaleenan
G McGovern
D O Hagen
D O Hanlon
K McKernan
C McGovern
C Mooney
P Turley
R Johnstone
M Poland
C Maginn
J Johnston
D O Hare
B O Hagen
Galway beat Armagh by 13
Must have been at a different game 🤔

Down will undoubtedly win by around 10
Higher division and all that
In fact we are just glad to be on the same pitch with our illustrious neighbors
Hopefully you don't embarrass us and isn't it just
 great Tony has decided not to go as it's beneath him, hopefully Spurs playing that day a postseason friendly that day.

For me Armagh by 4/5 pulling up.

ethan rafferty played for his club yesterday which is a bonus for Armagh, hopefully he can at least make the bench.

Even money both teams according to Sky Bet.I would fear for Armagh if they win and have to face Monaghan

No need to fear. We won't be beating Down.
🙈

We will be beat down
That I would be confident of
We mightn't win another game though

Watched the Vancouver concert last night on YouTube
It's like a tribute act in concert
Bono of course spouting the usual shite about poverty etc although I have yet to hear him donate his fortune.
