Would have thought Tally would have Down organised, and set up very well defensively. Would expect to see Down get plenty of bodies back in defence. That in itself will cause this Armagh side a lot of problems.

Were you at our game with fermanagh
I know it was just one game but it looked like we actually had a plan for playing against those types of teams. Worked that day hopefully it works on Sunday too
Fair enough, but this is the championship. I'm not sure one league game is enough to go on.  I hope we have found a way to deal with these tactics - we've struggled for a good few years now.

Is there a curtain raiser?

Down v Tyrone minor, I think. Hard to know who to cheer for there.

South/North Armagh - Tyrone
Mid Armagh - Down

I would imagine North Armagh would support Down.

F*ck

The North West corner then. A few clubs there bordering Tyrone.

When did it change from being the same matchup as the senior game?

The leaving cert messed it up because the Southern teams couldn't produce their players early in teh championship season so fixtures are moved to suit them but it means that we can no longer have the direct match ups

I have a feeling Armagh will win this game much easier than expected. Armagh narrowly missed out on promotion to division 1 due to a defeat to Meath early in the campaign whilst Down suffered similarly in division 3 only with a late defeat. Armagh simply have too much firepower up front compared with Down and they will be chomping at the bit to exact some revenge for the defeat of 2 years ago.

They do, but they still have to produce the goods on the day.

They defo have the fire power.
3 big questions are can they deliver in the Ulster Championship, do we have the tactical ability to unpick a packed defence and do have the organisation and prep to defend against a team that breaks out from a massed defence

We done all that against fermanagh in the league. Granted championship is a different animal but there is definitely a plan in place

Iíd imagine thereíll be at least 1 or 2 changes. McGeeney and his mind games.

That's 4 big game players out for us, considering Down's mid field are sh1te then we've just decided to give them a fair shout at it...

First championship game against Down and McGeeney needs to play the mind game card already?

If thatís the Armagh team then Iím a China man. Geezer rarely ever lines out as selected it is just to keep Tally guessing.
