Am I right in saying that barring a Westmeath win by 20+ points Roscommon are basically promoted anyway?

Even if you test negative you are still required to isolate so even if nobody else on the bus has it they won't be allowed to play.

Cavan have their own Covid concerns and Roscommon have a good squad. This will give Cavan a boost but doesn't count Roscommon out by any means.

Cavan have no plan at all to break down Kildare here. Flute about with it outside the 45 until we lose it.

This has turned into a hammering and we will be in serious relegation bother now.

Itchy I have heard them stories as well.
Any truth in them?
Hyland I thought dropped a few hints today in his interview

Cavan apparently missing 5/6 starters for tomorrow.

They should have been out of sight but you shouldn't have to rely on being out of sight. The ref really looked like he wanted to punish Cavan at every opportunity. Blowing up 2 minutes early is something he should be made to account for, they can get away with going over the time but cutting 2 minutes off the announced time should be chased up.

Our full back should probably have been brought out to midfield earlier. The centre back was excellent too.

Fair play to a game Armagh side for pushing Roscommon all the way.

Well the stewards had to come on and walk the ref off the field while the Knockbride players remonstrated with him. They (not necessarily players) seem to have sent a lot of complaints the way of the WeAreCavan Podcast. Strange behaviour given that they didn't lead the game at any point and the footage shows a clear square ball. I wonder did the umpire tell them he thought otherwise and that's what caused the furore?

Good senior final. I'd probably fancy Crosserlough for the replay. They look like the better side.

Safe to say Knockbride didn't take their beating well...

Any idea what the numbers are like in Maghera? The decision was more or less forced on Corlough because they weren't going to be able to field and could probably have been made a couple of years earlier.

If they have numbers and want to make a go of it then grand, but the score difference needs to be ignored from these games because it's making a Maghera result into 3 points more or less. Should probably ignore the score difference against the lowest ranked team or something to that effect.

Another decent weekend of games. Ballinagh look a cut above the rest in intermediate.

Something really needs to be done in Junior, the Maghera result for the teams that drew them skews the whole table. Swad were hard done by, beat 2 Quarter Finalists and go out, Kildallan beat Redhills and hammered Maghera and go through.

Gearoid is a player who excels when on top. He has rarely shown the ability to dig in and lead when things aren't going well. Leaving Swad was no different, they were on a poor run and he had no interest in relegation battles and junior football so he left to play Senior Football with a heavyweight senior club, he does not live in the area of that club. His behaviour in his last couple of games for Swad was embarrassing. The transfer is not technically against the rules but that's the only defence that can be mounted for him it seems.

All that being said, I think Swad are much better off. They have an influx of Corlough lads who have livened things up and given them fresh impetus. The looming figure of McKiernan is something they can do without. The Gaels get a generational talent with a renewed vigour for club football. So there's potentially no losers here long term.

From the highlights of Kildare v Roscommon, Kildare look impressive enough despite the loss. Strong and powerful and can score from distance. Roscommon generally match up well to big physical sides and we definitely tend to struggle on that front. I think they will beat us with a bit to spare unfortunately. Unless we can pull out a huge performance but our naivety and the amount of terrible individual performances versus Clare would make me think that's unlikely.

Exactly, look at Cavan and Roscommon. Both have bounced back after relegation, Roscommon will do so again this year and Cavan could have and probably would have too with a full squad. You learn nothing by floating around the middle of the table in Division 2.

I think Cavan will beat Clare but fail to beat Kildare and Roscommon. Two teams we rarely get past.

Armagh and Roscommon to go up.

I think at this stage Doughty probably needs to make way for someone else, he didn't show well against Laois and then a silly black card last night. Time for someone else to be given a chance. Pierson is doing well but I just don't think he's athletic enough to be a nailed down starter long term. I'd like to see Ryan Connolly and Liam Buchanan given more game time.
