If you couldn't pick Harrisson out as a county player while watching glassdrumman you would be as well packing the whole thing in.
not last friday night you wouldn't. Very poor performance.

The fact is we donít have many ďstand out ď players which in turn leads to relegation to division 3 and embarrassing results like the Donegal one, our squad is made up of mostly players who are very average and Iím sure there are players of an equal standard or better in the county who arenít on the panel or donít want to be on the panel!

Iíll be there, in all honesty I canít see us winning but I hope the players that didnít perform against Donegal show a bit of pride in the jersey and donít give up if/ when we go a few points behind, are we expecting many changes in personnel?

I see us winning.....close but yes

Harrison
McAleenan
McArdle
Doherty
O Hagen
McParland
Mooney
Turley
Donnelly
Millar
McKernan
Maginn
Dornan
Harrison
Millar


Baffles me how so little changes to being made. Destroyed around the middles and overrun all over the field what do we do change our corner back. O Hare was ruled out allowing for that change along with the obvious one and the keeper.

definitely expected more changes to be made. Burns must be hoping the players picked can go out and redeem themselves but unfortunately that line up wouldn't fill me with any confidence especially after the display in the last outing. hope i'm wrong.

R Johnstone as him coming on doesnít work
Stephen McConville not test at this level but was good for st Maryís (big step up)
J Flynn to midfield

Now is when we really miss

McGovern
McGovern
Murphy
Quinn
Mallon

Read team, Eamonn has given players chance to redeem themselves, very noble , I expect to be beaten by 5 Pts , hopefully that will end this managers tenure, disastrous appointment from the start, there is no positives I can see, I sincerely as a life long Down supporter hope Iím wrong but I canít see any other result other than defeat.Why isnít more of the panel been given a chance , if they are not good enough why are they there in the first place?

There must be a reasonable prospect of a couple of further changes. Harrison was a certainty for nets and it was predictable that McAleenan would come in at corner back with the half back line retained. Turley will only start if Burns thinks the Cavan midfield is physically strong but slow, and Ronan Millar has yet to convince. McKibbin and Flynn are in contention and throwing in someone with a point to prove like Madine or McGrady could shake things up. Cavan are entitled to be favourites, but they have conceded big scores in their last two defeats and, for all our obvious weaknesses, we are a decent price at 3/1.
