I expect this to be the dirtiest game of the championship by a long shot. A minimum of 5 red cards.

Why?

Armagh are my favourite team in  Ulster at the moment, as I like McGeeney and like the way Armagh play and love Jamie Clarke. But am hearing worrying things that things have improved drastically in the Monaghan camp since the Fermanagh win. Lads are flying in training and challenge matches.

Hope Iím wrong, but my prediction is Monaghan by 6 or 7.

Have Monaghan played a challenge match since beating Fermanagh last weekend?

Yip, their A team beat their B team by 10 pts on Thursday night after they played headers and volleys

Ex-Rangers captain Fernando Ricksen in bad shape with Motor Neurone Disease. Was on news trying to raise awareness of the disease. Heís nearing the end it seems. Only 42. Sad to see.

Shocking stuff altogether...what do you say when you know they won't get better but you don't want them to pass on. Sad!!!

Turnbull rejects Celtic's offer - keeping his options open!!

Greed little Bastid, hope his agent ruins it for him

David Turnbull's potential £3m switch to Celtic hangs in the balance after the Motherwell midfielder rejected their offer.

A club record fee was agreed on Wednesday between the Fir Park side and the Scottish champions.

But the 19-year-old player and Glasgow club could not reach an agreement over personal terms.

Celtic have now released a statement to say the "magnificent" offer made to Turnbull has not been accepted.

"Currently, we have been unable to come to an agreement with the player's agent," said Celtic.

"Celtic FC is content that it has made a magnificent offer and it is now up to the agent and player to decide if the player wants to join Celtic.

"If not, we move on."

BBC Sport has learned a number of clubs are monitoring Turnbull's situation, including Barnsley who have already had a bid for the Fir Park academy graduate rejected.

Sources close to Turnbull confirmed the Celtic offer has been rejected, insisting the player will continue to keep his options open.

Turnbull, who scored 15 goals for his boyhood club last season, has two years left to run on his contract.

Congrats Cavan and probably deserved. All the best in the final, would genuinely like to see Cavan beat Donegal...So Good luck.

Cavan were very economical today and i think they only had like 4 wides, I do believe Armagh had to work a bit harder for their free's today and there were two moments in the game where we should have had a free in front of the posts and didn't get it and Cavan went up the field and scored each time - McVeety is a class footballer and was a real thorn for us over the two games.
What next for KMcG? We had our chance the last day and bad tactics cost us the last day, he either doesn't play S Campbell or takes him off first sub in games and everyone can see that he's too good a footballer to be sitting on the bench I suppose we'll see how the rest of the season pans out with hopefully a bit of a run in the qualifiers, as someone said Armagh have some v good footballers and should be doing better...

Unfortunately we already know whatís next for Geezer. Not good enough at this level but destined to stay in the job regardless as our chairman indicated before the Down game.

Who is the alternative to him if he did go

Tony Mac surely is the obvious choice...but as someone stated KMcG will be around for another few years yet...sure bring in another few boyo's from the 2002 team ::) as your backroom team and underage coaches

FFS lads, this yapping is depressing stuff...

People are saying here that favourites rarely lose the replay but in fairness there was not a big pile between the two teams in the betting so wouldn't be getting too caught up in that one 5/6 Cavan & Armagh 13/10 for this Sunday's game. The one thing that most managers don't seem to have the bottle for is when having the extra man advantage why not throw him up in the forward line and give the other team something to think about and make them (force them closer to goal) bring another man back to mark him, this will give you a better advantage (in my mind anyway) than pulling him back to have another sweeper.

They just don't want to take the gamble but i believe it would pay off...On the game this Sunday it'll probably be similar to last weeks game, I expect Cavan to be better but i also expect Armagh's forward line to be better too so should be interesting...FFS Kieran just them them loose and go for it...have a shoot out like the Rossies game last year, go for it ;)

Some yapping and complaining on here FFS, both teams had decisions that went against them. Both teams had decisions that went for them, both teams were involved in the dark arts. Dry your eyes and just look forward to the replay and may the best team win, If Cavan beat Armagh next Sunday i'll wish them all the best for the Ulster Final.

Both teams will come away thinking they could have won it and think they were hard done by. I thought McVeety was probably Cavan's best player and thought he did receive a bit of extra treatment (that's what teams do to the opposition's best players). There were too many mistakes to start singling them all out, don't want to start on tactics as i don't think we have any (bar getting everyone behind the ball) but the thing that pissed me off the most was trying to keep ball near the end and losing it. We deserved all we got for that.

The thing that normally happens in extra time is one team's fitness or a few scores take over and usually dominate the other team but what we witnessed today was two teams out on their feet during extra time and didn't have anything extra to give...Surprising both teams were like this...

Both sets of fans think the Ref gave them nothing...lol. Thought he was just ok TBH, if we all took off our blinkers off we'd see it differently (I include myself in that), what is one teams free is the other team getting robbed...lol.

Armagh team
Hughes, Morgan, Mc Kay, hughes
Kennedy Donaghy forker
Grimley burns
Nugent Grugan hall
Clarke o neill murnin

So no Rafferty or vernon
Actually thought Campbell would start but see logic in springing from the bench

TBH Rafferty & Vernon did not deserve their place after their last display. I'm sure Campbell is disappointed he's not starting, what has a fella to do to get a start. Any game he did start in the league he was first man to be subbed. I'm sure KMcG has his reasons though ::).
How fit will Murnin be? There is no way he can last the full game, maybe that's why Campbell is in reserve? Who knows, he may well do the changes before the game though just to confuse the opposition :D.

Looking forward to the match now, pity about the weather as it looks like it's going to be damp. Clones without a sunny Championship Sunday just doesn't feel right, the last day i remember getting wet there was Monaghan 2003 when we got humped when red hot favourites.
Cavan for Sunday are rightly favourites but I think we all agree Armagh are capable of a result but you just don't know what you're going to get from Armagh, I'm going expecting Cavan to win but hoping Armagh win but the chance to get to an Ulster final is decent and it would be great for the confidence to the younger lads of the team...No matter who wins on Sunday we/they'll be big underdogs for the Ulster final.

Armagh    2 - 13
Cavan      1 - 14

Hoping :P

Celtic have just completed a treble and according to this clown only 3 Celtic players made it into his "team of the season". Sweet Jasus"

The Scottish domestic season is finally at an end and BBC commentator Rob Maclean picks the 11 players who have most impressed him this term,

4-2-4: A McGregor; Tavernier, Halkett, McKenna, Taylor; Turnbull, C McGregor; Forrest, Morelos, Edouard, Kent.

Goalkeeper - Allan McGregor
The Rangers goalkeeper ended the season with a suspension but for me he was the best between the sticks in Scotland over the whole season. Joe Lewis and Daniel Bachmann more than merit a mention but McGregor has been better than ever at the age of 37, still pulling off game-changing saves.

Defence - James Tavernier, Craig Halkett, Scott McKenna, Greg Taylor
Famous last words but I don't think there can be too much disagreement about who fills the right-back position. It's not just that Rangers captain James Tavernier has scored 17 times. He's also a prolific creator of goals and a natural leader. Tavernier has kept his cool even when others around him have been losing theirs.

When picking my first centre-back I have to reflect on how many times I've picked Livingston skipper Craig Halkett in my team of the week. Livi's loss next season is Hearts' gain. Halkett's still young, about to turn 24, and will continue to develop. A Scotland call-up is not beyond him.


Connor Goldson, Kristoffer Ajer and Stuart Findlay were in my thoughts but I'm going for Scott McKenna, who surely won't be an Aberdeen player for much longer. The powerful 22-year-old will be very much in Steve Clarke's thoughts as the new Scotland head coach builds a team he thinks can qualify for Euro 2020.

If Kieran Tierney had played more he would clearly have been a strong contender for left-back. That means Kilmarnock's Greg Taylor is my selection. The Scotland Under-21 international has been a model of consistency down the left side, both in defence and attack for record-breaking Killie.

Midfield - David Turnbull, Callum McGregor
Only diehard Motherwell fans would have known anything about David Turnbull at the start of the season. What an incredible impact the 19-year-old midfielder has made since breaking through into the first team. He scored 15 goals, played with remarkable maturity and, even under contract, will be much sought after in the summer.

I've picked Callum McGregor so many times this season that it was sometimes difficult to find a new way of describing his amazing contribution. The Celtic playmaker is a class act and has played a massive part in the winning of the treble treble.



Attack - James Forrest, Alfredo Morelos, Odsonne Edouard, Ryan Kent
I'm going for it with a front four and the first name in attack is player of the season James Forrest. He's taken his game to a whole new level with Celtic and Scotland. Forrest scored five times in four days for the national team in November and notched up an impressive total of 22 for club and country.

Odsonne Edouard looked offended when asked if he was nervous taking a penalty on the way to Celtic's Scottish Cup win on Saturday. The 21-year-old Frenchman doesn't do nerves. He just scores goals. The double at Hampden took his total for the season to 23.


Odsonne Edouard equalised from the spot against Hearts and then added a second goal eight minutes from time
Alfredo Morelos has a ridiculous strike rate when you think about how many games he's missed through suspension. The Rangers fans have mixed feelings about their top goalscorer but the 22-year-old Colombian's end of campaign tally of 30 goals speaks for itself.

On the left side of my attack is livewire Rangers winger Ryan Kent. Plenty Premiership defenders will tell you he was unstoppable at times. Steven Gerrard would love to extend 22-year-old's loan from Liverpool but his spell in the Scottish shop window will have alerted bigger spenders to the prospect of doing a permanent deal.

What is pissing me off with people is judging him from previous clubs and they don't know what they're talking about. I thought he done well at Bolton considering the position he was in there when they were bankrupt and couldn't pay the players, he couldn't sign anyone and his hands were tied and as you say done better than he's getting credit for. Again at Hibs i thought he done reasonably well there too considering he was competing against 4-5 clubs with better players and bigger budgets.

As for matches this season...Celtic have been playing like this all season even under BR our performances were not good, NL took over Celtic and played and trained using the same systems as BR and didn't change anything yet people are saying we're playing bad under NL. If this was Ronny Deila i'd be saying the same thing and nothing to do with knowing him or not, anyway as you say just let him at it and hope he gets the funds to sign 4-5 quality players in the summer and take it from there.

Nope, didn't sign anything, we were just going to exchange and complete on the same day.  I've a brother in law at the bar who advised me, he's done plenty of property work - we could give a partial completion argument a bit of a go, but unlikely to be successful, just wrack up costs.

We were never asked for a deposit (strange for a new-build) and it suited us as the OH was always suspicious.  We suspect it's mainly greed - there's a bit of momentum in the development and we struck a price last year so he probably thinks he can better it.

But to happen two days before we planned to move in is just cruel!  This company has plenty of houses to sell around Lurgan so just wanted to warn others.

Forget Lurgan, can't believe that you would even think of buying there.

Take your money, add a little more or downsize slightly and move the Moira/Magheralin and you have a village area with access to M1 and the train.  Belfast in 22 minutes by train from Moira.
Ask the good folk in Moira about their rush hour traffic.. ask them how they enjoy standing for 20mins every morning on their 22 minute commute, thatís if they can even get on the train that is... or if they can get parked in the morning...cos you know the station isnít actually in the village...

Seriously I know Lurgan gets a bad rep but itís not like itís Beirut. And the area Rois was moving to is really nice.

That area is top notch and TBH most people here on the board would get a shock if they seen how upmarket it is. Lurgan is the spot Rois and you know it or you wouldn't have considered living there...There is a nice big house for sale in Kiln Vale (just went up last week), principle of nearby school owns it. Really nice and half a mile from M1...
