Roscommon v Armagh
« on: July 02, 2018, 10:06:15 AM »
Firstly where will this match be?
Secondly Roscommon will be raging hot favourites so have Armagh a chance?
Thirdly here comes the Super 8's for Roscommon Armagh, delete as you see fit

Worst possible draw for us from a board usage perspective.

If you don't know why Armagh folk, you soon will...

:) :) My first thought when I heard the draw.  It's not that it's the hardest possible draw we could have had or the fact that IF we win it puts us in a group with Tyrone, Dublin and Donegal.  It's the week's pain of looking at this thread and how it'll be polluted by yer man.

I think we know

From a pure footballing perspective it is the toughest draw there was.

Ifs for a place in the Super8s so a tough draws were always a possibility

What can Carrick on Shannon hold? Donít recall much detail from our game there a couple of years ago other than it was hot and it was raining goals. There or Clones look like the options. Clones would appear more equidistant

Tough but probably a good draw, will let us know if we've really moved forward. A good testing ground for Super 8s as we could in theory have ended up in them by beating a raft of lower Division teams and faced a very rude awakening.

We should not fear Roscommon. Look what we did against Kildare last year.

Yes Armagh could have got Laois or Cork weaker sides than Roscommon. The prize for the winner is tougher group also so not a good draw all round.

Did Armagh and Ros not play each other in 77 and 80?

It's a good draw as Roscommon are a decent side and if we were to win it certainly will give us a bit of preparation of whats to come from the big hitters, if we lose and most people will say we will then we'll know that we'd be safer away from the Super 8's as we'd have got 3 hammerings. I'd just love it, really love it if we were to win and see Mr McStay's miserable boat race

Will be McStays last match as manager of Roscommon if they lose this game i can imagine.

Very good scoring by Armagh in the last 3 games 3-16,1-19,2-16 so they rossies will need to defend well to win this game.
