Gonna be a busy few months for the Down panel playing catch up even just to get up to same fitness levels as the other  Div 2 teams. Hopefully wee James, and Aidan O'Rouke can get a good buy in from the players they call up. Would imagine it will a very different looking 15 which take to the feild v Monaghan than the one that played v Donegal this year come championship time. Personally I'd like to  see these players involved this year, I'm sure there are plenty I've missed out now.

3 x Johnsons
Shane Annett
Cormac McCartan
Steven Fegan
Ruairi O'Hare
Odhran Murdock  (very young, but some talent)
Owen McCabe (if he can get his form back, seems to be struggling since that bad injury v Mayo.)
Charlie Smyth
Tony Morgan
And M. Rooney from Kilcoo aswell .

October and still haven't announced a new county management  set up. I thought they would have had someone in place before the championship got serious. Wonder what the hold up as been.

Has there been any retirements/any new faces in the Down squad for this year? Hopefully Darren O'Hagan is back, will need full squad a available to even compete in the league and give Donegal a game a bit of a game this year.

Conor Francis is another who looked decent footballer before he left. Any word in him?

Any word on any new faces in the Down panel for 2021 or any returning players? Are the Millars from Glenn still in Oz? G McGovern back involved? See Doherty due back in Ireland soon, be good to see him involved again. Be interesting to see if Shay McCartan makes himself available for the county.

According to I.N. Conor Laverty also in for the U20's job, apparently he has Marty Clarke and Brendan McVeigh as part of his backroom team. Would be a good appointment. Very highly rated coach and strong team in with him.

Any word on who will get the U20's job? I would have liked wee James to take it, as he's coached a lot of players as minor manager.

Best football Ive seen from Down in a long long time in that 1st half, such a pity it was followed by 2nd half collapse. What will really annoy the players is that even when Cavan really put the pressure on Down, they still had opportunities to kill the game off. Few strange calls from the line today but  there is a significant improvement in this team. Div2 next year will definitely improve them again. Obvious again how much we struggled to win kickouts (basically been a problem since Gordan, Rodgers, and King retired) Maybe next year Jack Hazard could be in with a shout of no.1 Jersey, definitely need few more options in MF. Would Ryan McAvoy, Charlie Smith, O'Rawe be worth a look in there? Couldnt fault the players for effort today, roll on 2021.

Noticed Dylan Ward wasnt named on the bench, he injured? Hopefully still involved in the panel, he definitely has something to offer, especially given how badly we struggle in the middle.

Funny game today .
Not a lot of chat about it .
Fermanagh missing 8 players from last year's starting team .
Down have won promotion from division 3 but have absentees of their own.
This won't be pretty , plenty of men behind the ball but I think Fermanagh could just shade it.  Midfield will be crucial and I think we hold the upper hand there.
Tomas Corrigan has shown definite signs that he is getting back to himself and if he can hit 6 or 7 points I think we will sneak it by a point or two

Its the fermanagh midfielder im most concerned about, they seem very strong there,  and its been a  major problem for Down this past few years lack of ability to win their own kick outs or even put pressure on opponents kick outs. However that said I hate conceding the opposition kicksout, but I think Down will do just that today.

Donal O Hare is a class simply dont lose that in a couple of games. Having a pop at him here is cheap..even if he is going through a poor patch! You give a dozen years to your county (from u 16 onwards) and boys here lining up to take a cheap shot pop at you. Not very classy.

Donal O Hare been brilliant player for Down for guts of 10years, however anyone who thinks hes in good form clearly hasnt seen him play this season. Donal in good form walks on to team thats obvious. Other players deserve a chance thats all I'm saying.
