Right, with the Cavan game parked for now, here's hoping the Kerry animals have softened these hallions up a bit last Sunday for our showdown with them this Saturday evening ;)

2 years ago Monaghan beat us quite comprehensively in Omagh and they seem to be off to a flying start with away wins over Mayo and Kerry already. You would imagine though this game will be more like the Cavan game with a lot more bodies in defence.
Both teams will be hoping to meet each other again in the Ulster final this year as they are in opposite sides of the draw and whilst Monaghan have still to beat the red hands in Croker, they don't seem to fear them any more in Ulster.
If Monaghan win this they will fancy their chances to make the league final.

I see they held O’Donoghue and Geaney scoreless from play though both scored 3 frees each.

Do Monaghan have a few injury worries, I though I heard O'Rourke say after the game on the radio?

We're motoring well in the league this year so this would normally be a great time to beat them Tyrone hoors, but all things considered this will be a tough one on Saturday.

Tyrone will be that bit fresher after the Cavan game was postponed, and we had 3 or 4 lads off injured against Kerry. I believe Walshe tweaked his hamstring and Darren Hughes went off with concussion, so I wouldn't be surprised if both were out and that's two big losses. The defence is doing well and the form of the likes of Doogan and McCarron is encouraging early in the year, but I can see why Tyrone will be strongly favoured here.

Interesting game in store.
Monaghan are flying and are really cutting into teams - playing on or across the line if you like.

After the Dublin team will be a good barometer of where we are at this year.

Irrespective of the result I feel Monaghan have peaked far too early. The one thing we cant allow them to do is to lay down a marker and walk all over our lads.

No rain forecast for Saturday so at least we can be sure of a game  ;D

The Monaghan shirts are carrying an amount of blood splatter after the first 3 games. Will big Sean sit this one out for his own safety?

I can imagine Dick Clerkin tossing and turning in his sleep in great anticipation, just out of habit.

I don't know how you could come to that conclusion when it's still February.

He's in a fearful state, poor lad,  "cant allow them to do is to lay down a marker and walk all over our lads".

What I read is ´Monaghan are going to walk all over us'  'please  please don't let that happen'

It is a distinct possibility given the ferocity you have come at other teams.

Dont worry about big Sean - these are the sort of games he loves - the muck savages chasing after him roaring and frothing at the mouth hold no fear

We've done that before and still lost the game.

I hope there will be no repeat of these dark arts to shut down a Monaghan attack this Saturday evening,  as seen here  in the 2015 league game at Omagh, just after Darren Hughes shrugs off an attempt to drag him down, is bearing down on goal and then somebody has the "bright" idea to do this
