Armagh were lucky to win it in 02 never mind win a second. In the drawn preliminary game cavanagh missed a easy chance to win it at the end, canavan injured for the replay too.

Sligo missed chances against Armagh too in the 1/4 final, and Dublin had that last gasp free at the end in the semi that hit the post.
Armagh's name was on the cup that year.
Think the QF against Sligo went to a replay.
Cosgrove hit the stanchion with a fairly handy free for a regular kicker to bring the sides level in the semi-final.
in the first game sligo were through for a goal in the alst couple of minutes to win the game but took a point to draw it.
in the replay  in Navan they were robbed , with a coupel of points in it they had a clear penalty shout turned down which if scored would have won the game.

Any luck we got was hard come by and we were due it! It would take a right old bigot to begrudge us 02!
From doubters to believers again.

Donegal have fallen into the late 90s/ mid noughties Armaghs trap.  Satisfied more with winning local battles than the all Ireland. Overb celebrating getting over a step can lead to tripping up on the next one.  Both these counties have been Tyrone's biggest critics, however if they learn from Tyrone then another Ulster team can win the All Ireland this year.  Look at Derrys approach, their mentality despite what appeared to be a huge win over the champions was to move on quickly. The Monaghan win was even more impressive and by the time Donegal came knocking they were that composed they were fit to out Donegal Donegal. At the moment I think Derry Can win the All Ireland,  Donegal might improve to that level, if they lose their fear of defeat and stick MM into ff. Armagh can take that progressive step this weekend, forget about Tyrone and beat a team that should be a contender and take their place as one.

Read an article on the back page of todays Sunday Independent querying whether Tyrone were the worst AI champions ever. They were certainly the oddest champions in recent memory but they won’t care one jot as they all count the same.

Pundits have a hard time figuring out 2021 and 2022 are different years
