If Jamie Clarke, Brendan Donaghy, Aidan Forker and Mark Shields are all out Armagh are less likely to cause upset victory this weekend.

What do you know that the rest of us don’t?

He read the Irish news

Yes on Thursday morning the Irish news reported that all 4 could be out but 3 of that 4 has since been named to start.

Meath (FL v Tipperary)

Andrew Colgan;

Seamus Lavin, Conor McGill, Ronan Ryan;
James McEntee, Donal Keogan, Niall Kane;

Bryan Menton, Adam Flanagan;

Ethan Devine, Ben Brennan, Michael Burke;
Darragh Campion, Michael Newman, Thomas O’Reilly.


Subs: Barry Dardis, Cillian O’Sullivan, Gavin McCoy, Shane McEntee, Graham Reilly, Eoin Lynch, Sean Tobin, Niall Hickey, James Conlon, Bryan McMahon, Danny Quinn.

Four league debutants for us.

I expect we’ll bring extra pressure to midfield with Burke and Kane. Graham Reilly to be used sparingly as an impact sub unless things aren’t going well. Sean Tobin can make an impact too.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Apparently 6 changes to the team that started v Tyrone last year in the championship. 5 of those players werent even on the Meath panel last year.

Not sure it would be much of an uspet. Five of the six Kildare forwards were not on the panel last summer and Slattery did not start a game. Very inexperienced full back line named. Would expect Kildare to get better as the league goes on and we get players back.
There's Seán Brady going in, what dya think Seán?

Yeah although that includes Newman who played under Mick O’Dowd. We have a bit of strength on the bench with O’Sullivan there to come on as well. James Conlon does look good though I’ve not seen a huge amount of his games. We’ve seen a few good prospects come and go over the last few years so we’ll wait and see.

Quinlivan aside it’s a very similar Tipp team as last year. Same midfield pairing and Sweeney who was your top scorer still there. Same defensive players mostly just reshuffled.

Bill maher and robbie kiely are two of the first names on the teamsheet and our gameplan relies on them as much as anyone else. 5 changes from last years game against ye. Its more the lack of experience on the bench is the big worry. im still hopeful for sunday but its def hope im travelling with and not expectation.

A draw between Armagh Kildare 1-11 to 0-14. Armagh led 1-10 to 0-8 so a point dropped.

FT

Meath 0-15
Tipp 1-08

Tipp went down to 14 when O’Brien went off for a second yellow with around 10 minutes to go and pretty much settled what was a close game up until then. Meath were always leading from the start but once Tipp got their goal from a penalty towards the end of the first half it was only 1or 2 points in it.

Great to get the win but Donegal away is going to be a huge test.

A bit of mix. Missed a pile but Kildare had periods of dominance. Draw disappointing but acceptable. Cold day and bumpy pitch

Was it as brutal to watch as it sounded?

The first half was the worst 37 minutes I have ever sat through.
Both teams were just awful. 13 men behind the ball at all times and a load of side ways passing. Fermanagh in particular didn't break with any pace and didn't commit enough men to the attack.

Second half was alot better. Fermanagh hit 4 points in the first 5 minutes .  It was unreal .  Rumours that there might have been a few cardiac arrests in the stand such was the shock at seeing such attacking football.
Fermanagh then stretched the lead to 2 points but then hit wide after wide. Cork then got a goal against the run of play and decided to park the bus and then play keep ball. By this stage they had been reduced to 14 men. Cork had a few chances to get the insurance point but keep making stupid decisions when they simple point was on. Fermanaghs equaliser came from a Cork Free kick where the Cork man just kicked it straight to the Fermanagh midfielder Ryan Jones. Jones then kicked it into his brother Conal for an attacking mark.  The Cork defender then punched the ball out of his hands and the referee moved the mark closer to goal making a very hard mark a very easy mark.
Honestly Fermangh should have won but were lucky in the end to get the draw.
Massive game next week against Tipperary.
Cork are in big bother.
