Team for Sunday:
Morgan
McCrory
McNamee
Hampsey
Harte
Brennan
McCann
Cavanagh
McCann
Meyler
Sludden
McGeary
Bradley
Cavanagh
Donnelly

I wouldnt be suprised at all if Mattie Donnelly starts in midfield with Mc'Cann dropping to the bench. Hopefully we might see Lee Brennan start, but i would bet Harte would start Mc'Curry before him.  c'Cann has been very impressive for Killyclogher in the last couple of years but does go missing sometimes. He has the quality but he has not made any impression with the county yet. Came on against Mayo and didn't do himself any favours. Started against Kerry in Killarney and was very poor ( although that could be said for most of the team in the first half that day ).

Happy with the team. Delighted to see Brennan start at 6. Think he is more attack minded that Justy or Mc'Nabb and it points to a more expansive game plan this year ( dare i say it ). Also like the look of Mc'Geary and Meyler, hard workers but also a bit of style about them.. and hopefully we see Lee Brennan at some stage and his potential starts to show.

Looking forward to it and to the year, you never know what this team could do if it all clicks...

I have found that in recent years MH usually starts with the team he names. In the past he used to be guilty of naming a team and having a few replacements lined out to start wearing sub numbers. I can't see him reverting. The team named will be the team that starts imo.


the goal was on

Mickey for years never changed team but last 2 years he has made consistent late changes to team.

I'm not sure but I thought that he didn't tend to change a championship team from what was named but he did in the league. Isn't there a fine if you change it in the championship?
I can't see Mickey being too bothered with trying to bluff Derry with dummy team sheets.

I get the feeling Mickey has rated Conal McCann for a while and has given him a good few starts but he's never really taken them. Like we said he needs to show more urgency and fight. Does he play MF for Killyclogher?

You would imagine we'll see Petey pushing up forward a lot as usual and McGeary dropping back to cover him.
I wonder how often we'll see McCrory up in the FF line on Sunday. He seems to pop up there quite often.

Will Derry sit back with 13 behind the ball or will they play 15 v 15? (well to start with anyway)

By all reports Derry have went very defensive in recent challenge matches- leaving four men up front. Ryan Bell will start at FF.

About a third of the way into it. The Derry lad from the Star says it could be a "dog of a game"

Personally would like to see DD Mulgrew get good playing time. Think he has a tonne of potential and would add similar qualities to Niall Sludden in terms of speed and breaking the line. Personally dont see the fuss around Lee Brennan, don't think he has the speed, strength or ball winning ability at this level but hasn't had a chance yet so could prove that wrong.
