Are the Cavan and Monaghan balls stuck together every year or whats the story?

Provincial championships are dead so Tyrone probably better going out in first round against Donegal and then peaking later on.
Tyrone's peak this year seemed to be their league wins v Galway and Dublin.

Tough route for Tyrone, Donegal probably favoured, and then a hungry Arma  :P
Derry written off already? Bit early without seeing any football yet, especially with new manager the team will be hungrier i'd imagine

You would imagine this season will be make or break for a few intercounty managers. Each county have their own goals and im sure its along the lines of anything but an ulster final from Monaghan, Derry, Cavan and Donegal this year and a few managers will be given the road?

Monaghan - Banty (year 1)
Derry - Gallagher (year 1)
Cavan - Graham (year 2), Ulster finalists 2019
Donegal - Ulster winners 2018 / 2019

Banty is destined for glory,  is assured of the continued committment of Vinny Corey and Dessie Mone  and is possibly looking towards reindroducing Tommy Freeman,  Rory Woods (weight considerations) and Paul Finlay.

Quite an amusing statement. The free staters will find it hard this year. Tyrone, Donegal, Fermanagh, Cavan, Armagh and what will be an resurgence of derry. Ulster will be strong this year.

Tyrone would surely be under more pressure than any of the teams mentioned above? No success in Ulster nor the All-Ireland and looking to be moving further away rather than anything else. Donegal are reigning champions from 2019 & 2018 so it's hard to see what pressure they're under in terms of Ulster performances.

Yes, strange argument that Bonner would be under pressure.

Yes, wed like to make it through the Super 8s, but weve had very tough groups and draws both years, and weve also got two Ulster titles that not too many would have predicted. And given weve Tyrone (again!) first thing next year, it would be a very unreasonable county board and public that would hang his assessment on making the Ulster Final.

Would you be surprised if Donegal don't reach the last 4 again next summer and decide to make Stephen Rochford manager in 2021?
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Donegal had the handy group this year but were lucky to beat Meath and were a complete flop against the worst Mayo team for 10 years. Played ok in a very loose marking game against Kerry but could not drive against Mayo.

The Dublin group was clearly the weaker of the two this year, Tyrone offered nothing against Dublin/Kerry/Donegal and still managed to get the results against Roscommon and Cork (doesn't reflect well on the quality of the group). Didn't Donegal beat Meath by 10 points?

I would be very surprised if they did. Little fire in the belly
