Congrats & all the credit in the world due to Cavan!

Dunno what Donegal were at, thinking of the Dubs no doubt.

Black card my hole. Cassidy is embarrassing himself here, he's screwing Cavan at every turn.

Trying to equate Tories stances of 20 years ago with the Tories of today is frankly ludicrous, they've always been a 'broad church' to use their own parlance, the nasty pieces of work have always been there but they've generally been pissing into the wind until Brexit brought them to preminence. Social media has aided them unbelievably in the post truth world.

I don't think he'll see the season out, trouble is change might come too late. I've thought for a long time he hasn't fully got the dressing room and you can't have title winning consistency when that's the case - especially with Rangers looking like they've really turned a corner.

It will be very interesting when Vaccines are rolled out. Furlough schemes will disappear in an instant, doors of Jobs & Benefit Offices will fully open with claimants expected to return to pre covid terms asap, HMRCís softly softly approach will also disappear, numerous other factors will come into play that will force people to return to normal whether they like it or not Ė it will be up to them to deal with the potential dangers of circulating in normal society - if they ultimately refuse to take a vaccine.

I've been having battery issues with my Garmin 520 after 3 or 4 years use (40-50m spin and its near done, I've a power bank with me on all spins now). Keeping an eye out for a Wahoo Element Bolt myself, £185 generally, they should go down to £150 somewhere this Black Friday festive season. Noticed the Wahoos are generous with the oul climbing footage, my Garmin is kat in that regard.

Iím thinking that Donegal have cottoned onto what Dublin / Gavin have largely mastered over the past few years.

The key to coaching a team in attacking football, isnít about percentages. It isnít about trying to get the players to make a preprogrammed decision based on an algorithm that derives from where they are on the field, and how they rank in terms of creativity among the team. Itís about coaching players to move in such a way as to continually present options to the ball carrier, and then allowing him to make up his own mind. Then, when he makes up his mind, to do it with absolute conviction.

Whereas the key to defensive play isnít about setting up intricate systems and rules. Itís first and foremost about winning your own personal battle, then looking for a bit of help when itís not possible to do so.

óó

This isnít to say that Dublin and now Donegal donít have tactics or a style of football. But both play a remarkably simple game of football. Run into positions where you create an advantage to your team, then demand the ball. If you donít get it, repeat.

óó

With the point being that Armagh, while not as slavishly bound to a system as Tyrone, Monaghan or Kerry have shown this year, donít play like this. Their defenders donít take personal responsibility. Their midfielders want to catch first, ensure possession second. Their forwards are talented, but not in terms of interplay. Donegal are pretty much the opposite.
Having the best players helps tho

Shane McConville, either McEntee? At least a different goalie might get a run.
And what are they going to do different with the backs we have?

With the exception of Kennedy our back 4 are not up to it. We must have no other players in the county who are better or we would play them!!! Right. It seems the team management are forced into making adjustments out the field to compensate for this weak defense and evidence todayís game... thatís not working
Iím not sure the players are there right now in Armagh club football. I thought Forker done ok, Shields is great going forward and agree Kennedy is decent. We have no decent man markers nor a commanding goalkeeper
Well that's the joy of a new approach, trying something new, who knows? Maybe try something different with different personnel.

Armagh looked disjointed, nervous and consistently made the wrong decisions. Kick outs awful. Our defence is really poor and was badly exposed today. Our panel has no strength in depth. Bringing on players who are riddled with injury to take them off again less than 10 mins later. Out fought in midfield. Forwards clueless. Our forwards collectively are overrated - when  the chips are down they are found wanting.

Reality is Armagh are way off Division 1 standard. Someone says their half a dozen short of being a top class team. Iíd disagree. Half a dozen off being a team able to compete. They did exceptionally well to achieve promotion but they lack the makings of a division 1 team. McGeeney getting flack as usual, which is deserved to a certain extent (especially after today) but doesnít take into account the bigger picture. Who in the county or elsewhere is going to do any better with the players available? Itís not as if thereís a wealth of hidden gems in Armagh club football ready to be unearthed.

A good start & playing with the wind were essential, confidence punctured after 10 minutes and embarrassing since. Half a dozen players short of a top class team. Ryan Kennedy again looking solid about the only positive I can see. McGeeney's position will surely come under scrutiny again.

After gaining promotion to division one I doubt it. And nor should it
This is not a kneejerk reaction - It needs scrutiny. The tactical failings are pretty consistent. Hard questions need to be asked and backroom teams shook up at the very least.

I'd be keener to see Murnin get a run out in FF before Rafferty tbh, any word on him?
