Standard in the county isnít where it was, back to basics needed. We canít keep thinking where we are is good enough to compete in Ulster let alone All-Ireland series.

Cuan - Right about refs, not sure who ppl class as good this year but they can change a games complexion.

Donegal apparently won by two.  There will be plenty of suggestions about the team for Armagh, and Ed Hardy is entitled to his ideas. However, Maginn is still a likely starter with Havern and Mallon there or thereabouts. If McArdle and Flynn are fit, they are in the same category. The biggest question is whether O'Hagan, probably our best player, is asked to mark Clarke in the corner or kept at his natural position at wing half. Midfield is a problem no matter what we do so packing the sector may be our best option.

Ryan Johnston ruled out of armagh game. Big blow, either as a starter or to come off the bench.

Anyone care to hazzard a guess at the team for Sunday. I don't expect many changes from the league unless the friendlies unearthed something special

1. Burns
2. Collins (man mark clarke)
3. Wells
4. McAleenan
5. Laverty
6. Flanagan
7. O'Hagan
8. Mooney
9. Flynn
10. Guiness
11. Maginn
12. McGrady
13. J Johnston
14. O'Hare
15. McKernan

That team won't beat Armagh. We just aren't good enough and we will get the usual it's a work in progress story!

Is the usual not that you hound the manager out with a belief that your players are good enough if you had the correct management team in place?

Nanderson does not say which of the Guinness brothers he is suggesting. Both are well in contention, as are Poland, Havern, Harrison and a couple of others, so there will be a few tight selection calls along the way. Tally is more than capable of shaking up the team that finished the league.

You are right. It was common to point finger at management whilst citing that the players were good enough and just needed the right man in place.
But im afraid to say time has moved on and its one of the poorest Down panels in recent memory. Tally is the right man to oversee the development and he is as good as we are going to get in Down for the foreseeable.
The players might come good in time and surprise a few people but i really cant see it. Lean times will continue for Down as far as the modern game is concerned. The calibre of footballer just doesnt exist in the county anymore as far as i can see. Efforts are being made in terms of grassroots and structures but we probably wont see those fruits for maybe another 10yrs at best.

but he was also right....you should f**k away off back to Antrim.

Shame he hadnít given them a bit of a shake before the league finished.
