Monaghan team named. As always, take with a pinch of salt and expect 2/3 changes regardless.

Beggan
Wylie
Boyle
Wylie
O'Connell
Walshe
Duffy
Kelly
K Hughes
Ward
Malone
Carey
McAnespie
McManus
O'Hanlon

Interesting to see Kieran back and named to start. Wouldn't be at all shocked if there was a late change, but he seems ready to play some part. Also great to see Kearns back in the squad, he might not play much if at all in this game, but fantastic to have him back in the fold.

I like the look of the defense, definitely agree with having Boyle at full back which frees up Drew a bit as well. Attack looks like it's been picked to work hard which will be crucial this evening, with a 2 man full forward line of McManus and O'Hanlon. I probably would have held O'Hanlon in reserve for an impact sub, but then I haven't been seeing how he's gone in the lead up to this. Big opportunity for him to make an impact, hope he does well. Then you've potential impact off the bench from McCarthy, McGinn and Bannigan, though the latter 2 haven't seen as much football as you'd have liked this year so far.

Are monaghan going to name a team or are they struggling to find 15 fit players?

We're just waiting as long as possible to see who's actually fit to play. Dick and Lennon might be asked to tog out yet.

Things must be bad I'm monaghan if a fella in his 30s who last played GAA 15 years or so ago is an option at midfield for your county team.

Things are bad in midfield, have you heard the injury list?

Tommy's accent hasn't been totally D4 rinsed.
He looks fit enough, I wonder could he do a job in midfield for Monaghan?

Wasn't he a midfielder for the minors at 16 before he fully committed to the rugby? He'd be a good addition even now considering our midfield options for the weekend.

Even allowing for the absences we'd still be fielding a better side than Cavan imo - but they're due a win against us, are at home, and we must be down to our 4th/5th choice midfielders, at best. Cavan will certainly be the stronger side in that area, and if they dominate there then you never know.

We have the firepower to punish Cavan up top and McManus loves playing them, but if they're starved of supply then it's no use. It'd be a good time for one or both of McCarthy/McCarron to have a big game in Ulster, and while I wouldn't expect him to start, O'Hanlon could have a lively cameo from the bench. With the normal midfield missing, we'll need to put in a mountain of work around the middle, so the likes of O'Connell, Kelly, Malone etc. will be key.

No matter what stages the teams are at, these derby games are always tight to the wire so I'd be expecting the same here.

Mullinaghta stepped it up a bit in the last 5-10 minutes, looking more like a team with a man advantage.  Crokes look vulnerable in the full back line whenever they're got at.

Crokes attack is too good and clinical though.

Jaysus, extra man for most of the game and 3 pts up, golden opportunity for Mullinaghta

A bit of shock half time score in the first of the two semi finals. St Marys 0-7 UCD 0-0

Wtf is going on there, strong wind?

Enjoyable game. Corofin certainly the better side but Gaoth Dobhair wouldn't quit. Corofin just upped the gears at the end when they needed to, and their quality shone through.

Cassidy is some man for his age.

Enjoyable half of football there. Gaoth Dobhair putting up a good fight and have responded well on a couple of occasions, but Corofin just have that extra bit of quality and class, and it's showing on the scoreboard. Their second goal there was very nicely worked.

f**king hell, we should have gotten something out of that, only ourselves to blame
If we had gotten something out of that game, it would have been an act of thievery.

Tragic mix up to allow the move for their goal.

Yep we didn't deserve to get anything out of it based on performance, but we still had the opportunity, as bad as we were.

The goal was absolutely criminal, have no idea what the defence was thinking. We were brutal the whole game, but if we hadn't fell asleep that one time we would have given ourselves a better chance. From beating the Dubs on day one, we're sucked into the relegation battle now, Omagh in 2 weeks is massive.
