Fermanagh are winning games on their own terms and f**k everyone else to be honest. I would not fancy any of this current Div 2 crop to do much damage next year in Div 1 mind.

Gallagherís plan will run out of steam. It relies on huge player commitment and isnít much fun to play. The compensation for the players is results. But they are short term results. Promotion to Division 1 will trigger defeat after defeat. What is the upside then? Any player drop outs will force Rory to look towards a shallow pool of talent especially if you are looking for club players at the required fitness level

In the meantime itís brutal to watch. The game wouldnít be viable for long if a majority of teams decided to play this type of sh1te


You should go and watch Fermanagh play this year before you pass judgement.
The only games we played this year where we were hard to watch was the opening two games against Cork and Tipperary. The players looked nervous .  As the league has progressed our attacking intent has developed. Against both Kildare, Donegal and Clare we were by far the superior team. We hit alot of wide's in all three games and missed alot of goal chances .
Certainly without the ball we drop men back but when we have the ball we attack with pace.
It's a lazy narrative to call Fermanagh negative and gives the players or management no credit.
Fermanagh had lost a third of the starting championship team from last year through injury, retirements and lads dropping off. Seamie Quigley, Tomas and Ruairi Corrigan, Michael Jones and Barry Mulrone. We have a very small panel of players buts its a testament to our underage academy ( St Michaels Ennniskilen) that we are able to replace these lads and push on.
These were all massive players for Fermanagh and I think that's what makes the current league position so good.
Add to that the fact that the Fermanagh players also took serious abuse from the national media when they basically ousted  Pete McGrath as well.
Would be great to play in division 1.
As others have said it happened before.  I remember Fermangh beating Dublin in Brewster the last time we were there.
It wasn't that long ago that I was in London watching Fermanagh getting dumped out of the championship.
Feck the begrudgers.

Yip, fair play FG. If you are lucky enough to get to div 1 embrace it and see what happens, if you beat Armagh next week you'll deserve to go up

That'll be the day.

Eye gouges are usually ''accidental''!  ;)

Most alleged eye gouges all seem to fall under category 3 offences which carry a one match.  Category Four offence  ďinflicting injury recklesslyĒ is a two match ban and is what Sheridan has got by the looks of it.

Armagh struggling for a team on Sat...A lot of injuries and suspensions, if Armagh lose and other results go against them they could be bottom of the league by Sunday evening. Fermanagh will fancy their chances, in saying all that Armagh have a really good record in Crossmaglen

Brave bit  of rain, with some sleet thrown in, before Fermanagh's visit to God's own country. It should stop a couple of hours before the game though.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

I would expect nothing less than a comfortable win for Armagh
