If you want plenty of chat then go and read today's Irish News article on
'Bin bags, spuds, scores and success - the story of Monaghan great, Nudie Hughes' 
http://www.irishnews.com/sport/gaafootball/2017/05/15/news/bin-bags-spuds-scores-and-success---the-story-of-monaghan-great-nudie-hughes-1025772/
I didn't know he was the 10th of 14 children.

There is some consolation with Darren Hughes' injury in that the damage done was at the lower end of the scale, nothing broken, not a full rupture and possibly just another 2 months out before testing the waters.

Is this game scheduled for BBC NI?
From the article :

"They’re all great at running off the shoulder but you don’t see one-on-ones as often now in Ulster because the ball goes back more times than it goes forward.”

Fermanagh team named .

Treacy,
Jones, Cullen, C McManus,
 Breen, McCluskey, Murphy,
Donnelly, Cullen,
Mulrone, Lyons, P McCusker,
Connor, Quigley & T Corrigan


The Bus is being parked

What age is Ryan McCluskey now??

36 I think .  I believe he is the longest serving intercounty player left

Nah Mark Breheny is, started in 2000.

According to the Irish Mirror McCluskey is the longest serving intercounty player who has played championship.
Himself and Breheny both made their debuts against each other in the league in 2000.
Breheny started while McCluskey came off the bench.

It's not so long ago that the shoe was on the other foot and Monaghan were the team at a low ebb looking to make some upset in the first round of the Ulster championship. Regardless, anything other than a good win for Monaghan would be a seismic shock.
Good to see Colin Walsh and Vinny Corey lining up.

I'd be very happy with that team named. Of course we can probably count on one or two changes before throw in, but I hope that full forward line of McCarthy, McCarron and McManus stays intact. Alot of scoring potential in that line and although I'd say McCarthy would play a little deeper than the other two, he is well capable of putting up scores himself so I'd be interested to see how all 3 play together.

Some good options off the bench too, it's good to see Dessie return after his injury. Michael Bannigan is another lad I'd be interested in seeing should he come on at some point. Vinny continues to be a key man in defence even as the years go on. All things going well, he should break 50 championship appearances this season.

The black card was brought in to prevent or punish cynical fouling. How then was KH blacked carded for reacting to being pulled when neither himself or were on the ball, and Monaghan were the team in possession?  As usual it's always the man who reacts gets punished

I think the fact that his reaction was so blatant (and fairly close to the lineman) was what did for him.

The Monaghan full back has been pushing everyone,  even after the ball has gone

Any chance the ref might book him?

Lovely inching away from the defender by Lyons, putting the back in 2 minds, to make space for himself.
