Derry disappoonting? Its literally the worst derry team from the mid 1960's! Theres at least 8-10 players of a better county standard who is either not playing; injured or not selected within the county@ Derry were 1 of the few teams to beat Dublin in the league in recent years but never recovered from the pasting against Dublin in a league final a few years bck

surely Armagh's current forward line can't be the only ones in the county worthy of a call up? Is there nobody on the panel or on club teams who could fill his shoes given the chance? big loss if his injury is serious....

Big game for us against Offaly. I think we have only scored 1 goal so far which is a worrying stat.  Hopefully we can rectify that. Loser probably goes down so a lot at stake.
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.

Yeah, we don't look like getting goals because we haven't played an attacking enough style and we don't pick the best natural goalscorer I've seen in a long time (Kyle Cawley). I'm hopeful last Sundays change in tactics will continue and that Kyle gets more game time. If we got quick ball in to him and Coen we'd make goal chances, no doubts. We're very much an evolving puzzle.....just hope we've enough to get this job done on Sunday.

At this stage I think we are just hoping we can beat Wexford at home this weekend, which should be enough to keep us up. I wouldn't be confident going away to Sligo needing points.

I agree with the inverse of that.  I wouldn't relish having to beat a Derrry team to stay up especially if they were also I. The danger zone.

For us, a win in either of our last two games guarantees survival..

Offaly definitely go down if they lose.
Sligo can lose and stay up by beating Derry though.

Whilst likely this is incorrect. Offaly could win their last game and if Derry failed to get more than 1 point out of their 2 games then Derry would be relegated.

For what it's worth I still fancy Sligo and Derry to pick up wins this weekend leaving Offaly and Wexford relegated.

Fancy Fermanagh to beat Armagh, our need is greater!

Could see a scenario where Fermanagh, Armagh and Westmeath all tied on 12 points and comes down to scoring difference.

Well that scenario is technically possible, but Derry's last 2 games will be against Wexford who are winless and Sligo who would already safe and have no incentive to try.

If Offaly can't beat Sligo at home, they won't beat Westmeath away.

Armagh have so many injuries I can`t see any other result
