Down v Longford tonight.
Looks an experimental team so prob realise even if we win both games we will still miss out on promotion.
Good to see McElroy back from injury. Havern at midfield is worth a look.
Think there will be a couple of switches before throw in though.
2016 Prediction Competition 3rd place :)


Havern hasn't been as effective in the full forward role since Barry O'Hagan got injured. Up until then they had developed a promising understanding, it was a huge turning point in our season so far.


Todays earlier results in division 3 mean Down can't be promoted even if we win the last 2 games
nil satis nisi optimum


Our slim chance of promotion is gone now after fermanaghs victory.


A horrible injury sustained by Mark Walsh - let's hope he can make a full recovery. A strange performance tonight - looked really good at times but decidedly average at other times. Are we any closer to a championship team/panel at this stage?


Sometimes we look no different from other years. Still afraid to take a shot at the posts from distance. Longford scored some magnificent points from distance last night. Dreadful injury not really sure what happened. Did he land badly. Championship 6 weeks away it's a big ask for this team to get past Donegal


Bad injury to Mark Walsh. He will be missed in the setup. I wish him a speedy recovery.

Ed Hardy

Didn't see what happened to Walsh, was at the far side but obviously knew it wasn't good with the delay and bringing the medics on. Hopefully it's nothing long term? Wish him quick recovery.

6 weeks now to prepare for Donegal. By looks of it there are still plenty of positions up for grabs. Any idea if few of the injured players will be back in contention for it? McCabe, Guinness, Annett, S Johnson, Donnelly, and who ever else I've missed out.

Truth hurts

Best wishes to Walsh, a massive loss to Ballyholland for division 2.
A dead match the other night after the news that we couldn't get promoted. We have become a bit predictable and haven't kicked on since the start of the league. Donegal should be a big target though and a run in the championship is needed. Still good signs from the camp and everyone is putting the shoulder to the wheel. Murdock and Magill will now play u20 which will be some boost to them versus Tyrone.
A good response from the minors after the hammering last week too.


The U20 game being a Wed night in Omagh isn't ideal for supporters. But it may be on tg4 youtube. Unfortunately Ulster and Munster U20 are straight knockout. Beating tyrone in their own backyard a youth ask. They are the yardstick so a good performance is required.


Is that game not fixed for next week?

Truth hurts

is it true Eugene Brannigan has left the county again?


No hes still with them, slight injury last weekend i heard but nothing serious.


Match v Offaly this weekend - does the management pick the team closest to their championship team or continue to give lads a chance so we have a panel of 20 for the game that can be relied on in the heat of championship???

skat man

hoping they put out the best team to get them working together as much as possible. Any early reports on how clubs are doing in pre season?
