Full times

Armagh 0-8 Tyrone 1-5 extra time to be played

Cavan 0-8 Dublin 1-11

Donegal 2-8 Monaghan 1-11 extra time to be played

Just because no one can beat them in Leinster shouldn't mean Dublin move to Ulster !  ;D

Do you think the umpire might have got his little book out to ask Clifford for an autograph and then thought better of it. :)

Tonto I actually doubt if there would be and as he is a Kerry man I think the chances are even less.

The footage I saw would suggest that the Tyrone player was the aggressor. I have no idea why Harte was sent off.  Last night there were handbags at halftime in the Armagh v Kildare game. Numerous players were involved yet Jamie Clarke is the only one to get a yellow -and it didn't start with him and I havent seen what he did. For his second yellow the Kildare player appealed to the linesman to get him sent off. 3 of the best players in the country and they get no protection. I am sure other counties see the same with their best players. These are the players you want to see. Not the diving mouthy players that always seem to walk away without censure.

McCurry is unplayable. To score from a sideline kick in them conditions is some feat.

You should probably add ' at this time of year' . Tyrone people will know better than me on that score

I think Dinny it was the 2 Lazarus like recoveries (11 and 23?) That riled Armagh support so much. The rest of the stuff you see in every game  sadly.

Thoughts on Referee. He was out of his depth. For the most part you had to wait for him to point before you knew which way the free was going. His timekeeping was extremely suspect too. To his credit though he wasnt biased- he got things wrong for both teams.

The great problem with Gealic football - who is the referee seems to determine how the rules are applied. Last week Armagh played a physical game with Cavan with no real angst among the players. Yesterday chess looked more physical and players - most particularly Armagh players - got extremely frustrated with the decisions.

So if one referee allows the more physical side of tackles go you play that way, when youíve a referee who is a stickler for not allowing rough play you adopt? Are players that thick that they canít adopt to the style of certain referees?

Youíll never get consistency, ever, players ainít consistent managers ainít consistent, different if the ref is only giving decisions one way, but if heís not then the players need to adopt to gain advantage

It is hard to disagree with the core of your argument. What I was trying to suggest was that Cassidy, Brannigan , McQuillian, Hurson, Coldrick , Gough etc. all referee by letting a certain level of physical play go. In general they referee Division 1 games. In Division 2 they referee some games while the rest are refereed by a variety of referees that referee in a way that bears little resemblance to each other. A certain level of inconsistency is expected between referees but the general approach to the game should always be consistent.

I typed and then deleted a number of things I consider he did wrong. I deleted them because i don't want to try him on a public forum. He may become a good referee if the powers that be coach him to correct the things he is weakest on. The one thing i want to stress though is that he was equitable to both teams.

Genuinely don't understand the attitude of some Armagh fans who think we will be really pushing for promotion. I'd love if we were, but I have not seen any evidence to suggest that will be the case. Hopefully last night will serve as a reality check.

Nail on head, speaking to a lot of fans prior to game last night there was an air of optimism in regards of promotion,  last night shows it would be a slaughtering session in Division 1.  The defensive frailties are there for all to see, the kick outs never improve, the soft frees and the back chat to get frees moved up were inexcusable, can't understand why it took Geezer so long to make changes, Donaghy is too slow in my opinion - second to everything, though he was not the reason Armagh were given a trimming last night.

While I agree with most of what you say I feel you are completely wrong about Donaghy even if yesterday was not his best outing. He is critical to any defensive shape Armagh do have. I am also convinced that if he hadn't have gotten himself sent of in Cavan match last summer then Armagh would have made an Ulster Final. The bigger problem is that considering his age that doesn't augur well for our defence in the next year or 2.

Armagh always lose to Laois and we were brutal today. As was the referee - for both teams. Laois very impressive in the way they managed the game. The pitch seems to need a bit of remedial work.

Good win for Armagh last night but Cavan were extremely poor. Tougher challenges lie ahead. Must say in matches to date i would not be a great fan of offensive mark. Teams have been setting up even more defensively . In saying that when Armagh played with the wind they were able to score from distance as Cavan were too deep. Be interesting to see will the same happen in other matches.

No point in getting rid of OGS.  He hasn't got the players. Van Gaal and Jose were considered world class managers and couldn't do anything much at United. Problems run deeper than the manager. Burnley are a desperate team who play desperate football and I wouldn't have their manager near any half decent club.

On a side note I love how commentators state that De Gea wasnt fouled against Liverpool while saying definitely a foul when players go down when someone sneezes beside them. I thought Hendrick had been shot he fell to the ground that easily from a nudge from Shaw.
