Sure Mickey Burke is on fire every day of week.

I reckon itíll be as close as our game in the OíByrne Cup. There wonít be much in it whatever way it goes. I donít think we will have improved significantly from that game but who knows itís hard to measure at this stage especially with all the panel changes.

Iíd like to see Lenihan develop into a top quality full forward because we really need one. Scoring 2-08 in an OíByrne Cup Final is great but weíll have to wait and see if he can deliver in the big stage as he has a good league last year too but didnít make much of an impact in the summer. Reilly and Oí Sullivan are obviously good for getting scores but they are more play makers.

I donít think I can recall seeing as bad a performance by an Armagh team. Whatís left of the 2014 team that beat us? They werenít world beaters then but todayís performance they looked like a division 4 team.

Just weak all over, even some of their kick outs were going to isolated Armagh players amongst 3 or 4 Fermanagh players which ended up coming back down the field as scores seconds later.

Definitely would be surprised if what we saw today was the best talent in that county.

That said fair play to Fermanagh they were vastly superior all over the field.

For us itís general apathy and lads choosing rugby, Aussie rules or a life in New York or just a life without county football.

That and serious neglect of underage which was only put right under Mick OíDowds tenure and will bear fruit in the next three years hopefully. Takes a long time to turn this juggernaut around before it goes off a cliff.

Obviously but the basis of the discussion was about teams improving or otherwise  and the general state of football in Leinster and nothing about who will beat what team and when.

Anyway if Iím so confident in my team that Iím not even sure if weíre within ten points of arguably the second best team in the province Iím hardly of the state of mind that Iím dismissing Longford or any other team in Leinster.

Kildare beat us by 10 in the league and 9 in Leinster last year. Have we got any better. No. Have Kildare gotten any worse. Maybe. So on that basis Iím not sure weíd get within ten points of them however Iím pretty certain we are not within 10 points of Dublin if we played them.

. Comprende?

Louth are in free fall as well. Carlow rising, Laois getting a bit of a bounce out of Div 4 but not up to much.

Likewise I donít think weíre within 10 points of Dublin and may not even be that close to Kildare either. The team that lined out against Westmeath was our strongest hand I would say.

Poor Paddy OíRourke said weíd win nothing, well he must be sick now weíve won this trophy and the Division 2 relegation championship so far. I think weíre a good bet for the Leinster best runners up award now as well.

The Super8s was always about making our Ďproductí more appealing to Sky while keeping the provincial traditionalists happy.

Everyone gets what they want now donít they.

While it was a stupid tweet I donít someone should lose their job over it. Freedom of speech means freedom of stupidity too. However unfortunate that may be at times. There are plenty of legitimate reasons for Des to take the high road though.

Itís rather laughable when people react to tweets as ďincredibleĒ or ďoutrageousĒ or ďshockingĒ. Itís like weíve all become emotionally incontinent, of course the situation hasnít been helped by mainstream media, sensationalist alternative media and the universal megaphone of social media.

The Meath hoganstand forum is probably the most active of ours. Donít know of any others.

Sean Tobin, Brian Conlon, Harry Rooney, Barry Dardis and David Toner have all left the Meath panel. Not sure if the latter two featured much this year but the other lads looked promising. Rooney hasnít quite come back to the form he showed before traveling for a year but hopefully heíll get back to it.

A few new faces were given a run out against Laois which we won well enough but it seems like weíll start the championship with a number of lads who didnít see any league action and probably werenít in the squad at all.

I wasnít being critical, itís quite an imaginative solution and Iím surprised itís even got as far as being implemented.

Iíd be open to any idea which has merit but Iím just curious how it works and if itís having the desired effect. What about clubs without county players. Iím sure it would be annoying to beat your local rivals but only get two points for it only for it. But I guess itís better than not playing games at all.

Anyone know what this ď9 with, 9 withoutĒ approach to club games is about that they are doing in Monaghan. Supposedly Duffy has been behind it in some way. How does it work especially for clubs at Intermediate grade? I donít understand the thinking behind awarding 5 points for games with county players and 2 for games without.
