Some level of administration incompetence that.

El classico is back again next saturday but it could be the most one sided El Classico in a generation as I just cannot see how Cavan will give Monaghan a game. Of course we can only hope, somehow, that Mickey Graham has a few tricks up his sleeve but I don't think so. I dont even have the will to start a row with the mushroom men on this thread such is my dread of this game.
Why do Cavan people most always have the desire to start a row before having a conversation?

Cavan with the advantage of an extra day's r&r.

Why do Monaghan people marry their cousins, its just one of those things I suppose.

Tyrone player positive for COVID

Why on earth would you get tested the week of a championship match?

Eh cos you have symptoms and are a risk to your friends, family and team mates.

I wouldn’t be blaming the players too much. I think the trouble starts with their defensive system. More  defenders are needed and backs need to be up with their markers contesting the ball and not lying back and letting the forwards get easy possession.Attacking half backs are great but you get caught out at the back when you have a turnover or shot drop short.Cant remember numbers exactly but think we were well outnumbered for the goal.
Roscommon are Connacht champions. Meath drew with Monaghan today as well.Not much between a lot of teams and Cavan still have some great young talent coming through,so the club coaches are doing a great job. Think we just need that superstar or two to make the difference

What team had a great system in place this year given all the disruptions, only teams like Tyrone with same manager and squad in place for years. I don't blame young players coming in but I do question a number of established players. Why is Jason mcloughlin physically the same build as he was 5 years ago, why has gunner not learned that he is giving away 3/4 points a game from frees and rarely makes it to 70 minutes as a result, why is gearoid going missing still in big games. I could go on. Players need to look at themselves in the mirror. Its an easy out to blame managers. Do you think there is a better manager than Graham out there with record of success that would manage us?? I dont think so

not sure can you blame neil Lennon for some of the shite in that game. Duffy wants a kick in the hole, he is playing like he is too good for scotland. Thats the 3rd game I have watched him in and he has been piss. Now we know he is capable of a lot more but it is easy to blame the manager

Very depressing to be relegated when we were in the hunt for promotion but those were two totally pathetic performances against Kildare and Roscommon. I was thinking today that this is a player issue and Graham needs more time, with all the chopping and changing to his panel. Then I did a google search and went back to 2016 when we played Galway with promotion to Div 1 the prize for the winner. I pick Galway as you can see them today battling for the Div 1 totle against the dubs. Here are the teams in a game Cavan won 1-16 to 1-12 ...

Cavan: R Galligan (0-2, 2 45s), P Faulkner, K Clarke, J McLoughlin, C Brady, C Moynagh, K Brady, T Corr, L Buchanan (0-1), D McVeety (0-1), G McKiernan (0-5), M Reilly, D Givney (1-1), M Argue, J Brady (0-2f)

Subs: N Murray (0-1) for Argue (51 mins), E Keating (0-2) for J Brady (55 mins), C Mackey for M Reilly (60 mins), R Dunne for Buchanan (BC, 63 mins), C Conroy for Corr (70 mins)

Galway: M Breathnach, D Wynne (0-1), D Kyne, C Sweeney, L Silke, G O’Donnell, G Bradshaw, E Brannigan (0-2), P Conroy, T Flynn, P Sweeney, G Sice (0-3f), S Walsh (0-4, 1f, 45), D Cummins (0-1), D Comer (1-1)

So Cavan retain the services of 11 of those players and Galway 8 of theirs. Yet the differences in where these team have gone since then in stark. What is wrong in Cavan. Are players just not willing to put it in. Is our backroom set up not good enough. Why does every team we play against look in better condition to us. I wish I knew the answers. All I see is a heavy defeat against Monaghan next weekend in front of the SKY TV cameras

So long Div2, I wish I could predict a quick return but I really dont think so. We as a county look to have totally squandered our 4 in a row U21 teams and we are now back where we started 10 years ago. Very depressing and the only thing I can predict for Cavan is a heavy defeat next weekend against the old enemy.

Cagey enough affair in Breffni so far. Cavan exerting a lot more energy by the looks of things. Killian Clarke doesn't look in shape and i'm surprised he started even if he is very experienced.

Same for Niall Murray. We look all over the place. Need a favour from fermanagh.

Rejected a few weeks ago by HQ as it would undermine the integrity if the League.
Total fk up when Antrim have to play Waterford in Dundalk.
The league is a mess
They don’t have to. They are choosing to.

Makes sense.

Indeed Antrim were very honourable in this sense and Waterford quite pathetic

Have a fire stick and previously set it up to access all channels. Haven’t accessed it in a few months - it’s now no longer available.

What the best way to access IPTV at the minute?

What do you mean "set it up to access all channels"?

The Firestick is merely a conduit and is still a perfectly valid method. The IPTV provider is what's crucial.

Any suggestions on IPTV providers?

Anyone with 5 posts id recommend sky.

What will Donegal do heading to Kerry? Surely the players won’t take their own cars? They’d be knackered.

Fermanagh players took their own cars .
They did manage to get the somewhere to stay though on the Saturday night .
Are hotels in the south open at the minute ?

Some are. I was reading one hotel cancelled on Fermanagh but another took them in.
