2 questions for me are :

Will Monaghan improve or be as poor as last year?
Will the Dubs be arsed, because they weren't last year .
Monaghan would have been relegated last year only for a push and a dive in the Tyrone v Roscommon game.

I think they will go down, probably with Meath or Galway

Roscommon discipline cost them. Nothing to do with Tyrone

Dubs under Dessie could go either way. I would imagine there would be lads out to earn their place but might not lend to a cohesive team performance. Monaghan might be in a similar position but they’ll always be tough to beat.

Meath will be treating this like championship but I’m not sure if we’ll have a strong enough squad to see it through but I shouldn’t write us off just yet.
Jack McCaffrey had a good interview on OTB this week.

He said that the announcement by Gavin caught everyone off guard. But the players met up to reminisce about the Gavin times and by the end they were all pretty excited and determined about 2020.

Interestingly, he’ll be working in a hospital in Kilkenny from February for 6 months so will have to deal with a commute for training/matches that so many non-Dubs have to deal with. Of course, Dub-KK is far from the worst commute going.

I’d be more concerned about his career going forward. It didn’t sound like he’s going to keep county football up for that many more years. The pressure is going to increase from work and to earn a place on the panel.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Massive blow to Meaths chances of staying up with the news that Mickey Newman has been ruled out of  the Division 1 campaign with a hip injury.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Yeah although Brennan, Walsh and Lenihan are able to take over on free taking but Newman was key to getting us promoted in terms of how he was able to bring others into the game. Similarly having Reilly to come off the bench last year helped. But in Division 1 i guess you need a bit more than that. We’ll have a very young team out against Tyrone. Seamus Lavin, Pauric Harnan and Ethan Devine will all miss the Tyrone game as well.

Happy new year, fellow Division oneians. Hard to know how Mayo will do, a lot depends on the first two games. Donegal will be well up for the game in Ballybofey after what happened there the last time both counties faced each other and indeed last summer's one when we dumped them out of the championship against the head. Mayo have never won in Donegal either and it's hard to see that unwanted record to be broken on Saturday evening.

The second one is in Castlebar v the Dubs.

Not too bad, and picked mainly on current form. No harm to give Gleeson another run to see what's he made of in a proper competitive game. Ditto Mulkerrin and D'arcy. HB line has to start producing the goods. Boyle not good enough and Ml. Daly has to stop going missing in games. With a fair wind behind PJ and against weakened opposition with a new/returning manager also a home win should be well achievable.

14. Brian Reape - Bohola Moy Davitts
15. James Carr - Ardagh

I reckon if that team starts, Coen will move to fb, Harrison to corner back and Boyle to 6. Inexperienced enough full forward line, but they have to start somewhere.

Decent enough side although fairly inexperienced (7 starters from the Dublin game I think?)

Looking forward to it all starting again

6 by my count. Clarke didn't play that game while Parsons only came off the bench.

Galway will have a task on hand to overcome a grizzled, McKenna cup boot camp, hardened Monaghan.

Boot camp etc but no McManus.
Worth a few points to Galway surely.
