Armagh v Tyrone [Athletic Grounds, Sun 5th June, 1.30]
« on: May 23, 2022, 09:41:28 AM »
With a league win that has already gone down in the annals of Armagh football, a definite Christmas DVD top seller and ideal stocking filler for all the young orchard fans

But what of the following

Ticket arrangements - surely a sell out predicted here, tickets via clubs only or expect online availability?

Coverage - anything to be said for a petition to have Jimmy Smyth on comms?

Geezer - is this Kieran McGeeney's last stand, lose and perhaps he passes the baton on?

I assume Brian Kennedy is suspended for this one?

This is the one we wanted.

Will certainly focus the minds.

Would expect us to be favourites for this - after the early season surge Armagh have shown they are a top 8 team at best.

Tyrone by 5

Plus what's the chances of a couple of Hulk Hogan type throws and a few red cards?

It's probably the game both counties needed. Another run through the qualifiers beating weaker sides only to stumble at the first decent opposition would have proved nothing for Armagh. Tyrone meanwhile looked to have clocked out this season between indiscipline, players walking out and others just lacking in motivation for various reasons. This game should awaken them for their slumber. For the losers it could be a long winter but for the winners it could kickstart their season. Should be some atmosphere in Armagh for this match.

The league game was a full house, this one will be too. Glad that I got a season ticket!

Exactly, whoever wins this can probably expect to get through a couple more rounds. For the loser played 2 lost 2 is not very impressive.

Brilliant draw for Tyrone. No long journey. Just a nip over the bridge to our beloved neighbours.
Armagh won't want this.

You're wrong there, it's the ideal draw for Armagh as well.

I can see why Tyrone might be happy enough but it's Tyrone arrogance to simply think that Armagh are afraid of facing them too.   

the goal was on

Think thereís no real Ďeasyí draws any more. Louth maybe, Cork maybe, but either of them would be sticky enough for f they were away. Clare will be a hard team to beat as well. Whilst itís a tough draw, itís the draw that this team needs. They either do it or donít and this is where the progress has to be measured. A win and the confidence is high. A lose with a good performance and thereís something to build on. A bad lose and the questions need to be asked and answered. It really is a seminal moment in the development of this squad under Geezer

Great draw. Brings to an end an unpromising season or propels the winner on.  For either team..

Some pressure on Armagh. Lose this and all of Geezers hard work will have come to nothing. Tyrone already proven they're the best. If they lose sure what about it? All good team get beaten and we'll always have 2021. But for Armagh this is everything. If they lose this match with home advantage I don't know where they go after this.

Armagh going for 3 in a row victories over Tyrone in the last 5 months, so not much to fear tbh. Hopefully McGeeney doesn't try and over think it, just play our best team and go for it. TK will be a big loss, fully expect to see a revamped HF line with no TK and sure if Hall is playing it's over anyway, so I expect to see a lot of changes from the Donegal game.

Should you not be more worried about where Tyrone go? Excuses at the ready if Tyrone lose. We always had 2021? All good teams get beaten? You would near think Tyrone could possibly lose this game.
