Thats a very strong Monaghan team, how many of them played in the Tyrone game? Don't think there was too many.

Monaghan team is about as strong as they could have named bar McManus, this is huge test for a Galway team with 4 league debutants.
That said, this is a home match that Galway simply must get a positive result from, with very tricky away trips to Kerry and Donegal to follow, we don't want to reach Round 4 of the league pointless.

Forecast is for wet and breezy on Sunday too unfortunately.

Monaghan might be less motivated with Cavan below in Division 2.

Maybe 6 started and 5 came on at ht and later.
Resting McManus is welcome, aside from that Banty has put all hands to the pump. But no worries for Galway, all predictions here are that Monaghan are doomed before a ball is kicked in anger :)

Won't know for a few rounds where teams are at. Sure I've seen Galway picked for the league final purely on the basis of the management appointment but PJ isn't out there kicking points himself.

Galway team v Monaghan

Connor Gleeson (Dunmore MacHales)
Johnny Duane (St James)
Sean Mulkerrin (Oileain Arann)
Johnny Heaney (Killanin)
Gary O'Donnell (Tuam Stars)
John Daly (Mountbellew-Moylough)
Cillian McDaid (Monivea Abbey)
Tom Flynn (Athenry)
Cein D'Arcy (Caherlistrane)
Michael Daly (Mountbellew-Moylough)
Paul Conroy (St James)
Mikey Boyle (Killererin)
Robert Finnerty (Salthill Knocknacarra)
Shane Walsh (Kilkerrin-Clonberne)
Adrian Varley (Cortoon Shamrocks)

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.
Galway will have a task on hand to overcome a grizzled, McKenna cup boot camp, hardened Monaghan.
 
             Rory Beggan;
Kieran Duffy, Drew Wylie, Conor Boyle;
Ryan McAnespie, Ryan Wylie, Karl OíConnell;
      Darren Hughes, Niall Kearns;
Kieran Hughes, MicheŠl Bannigan, Dessie Ward;
Conor McCarthy, Jack McCarron, Dermot Malone

Is McManus injured?

Not as far as I am aware, the issue is more to do with the evident wear and tear on his hips which apparantly benefits from a rest period.
He has a limited number of games left in his football lifespan.

Get yourself a chipped firestick, men do them for £50.

Well that's what I've had the past few years anyway ;)

Odds for topping winning the league:

Dublin 11/8
Kerry 3/1
Donegal 7/1
Mayo 8/1
Tyrone 8/1
Galway 10/1
Monaghan 16/1
Meath 50/1

To be relegated:

Meath 2/5
Monaghan 11/8
Galway 5/2
Tyrone 11/4
Mayo 3/1
Donegal 7/2
Kerry 8/1
Dublin 33/1

The bookies think Meath are a cert to go down with any one of the next 5 along with them.

Was just looking at the fixtures and Tyrone have a tough draw this year, home to Meath in the first round which presumably Meath will be fired up for and after that they have 4 away games plus home games against Dublin & Kerry.

Being a bit pedantic but always find those comments about 'bookies think things are certs' to be strange.

That 2/5 on Meath is a marginated price. If they make Meath 2/5 then given standard overrounds they make the 1/2 or so on 100% pricing, the change down to 2/5 is their margin. 1/2 means 2 times out of 3, or 67%. It's more likely than unlikely in their view but a long way from cert territory.

Picking on that point specifically which is unfair as it happens everywhere. Media say "bookies can't see X Horse beaten" when it's 10/11. When 10/11 basically means they make it a 50/50 shot to win or not

You sure?
I would have assumed 4/6 is 67%?

Convert to decimal price, divide 1 by decimal to get the %. In this case (4/6), 1/1.66 = 60%.     1/2=1.5.  1/1.5 = 66.66%

For fractions, add the two fractions together and take the second number. 4/6 means 6 times out of every 10. For soemthing like 8/15 its 8+15=23. 100/23, multiplied by 15 = 65%.

Apologies for derailing the thread for those that don't give a toss about punting

Looking forward to the league finally kicking off this weekend.  A solid performance accompanied by a win would be most welcome considering our fixtures over the next couple of weeks.   Not convinced Monaghan will start as selected based on personnel used through the McKenna Cup campaign.

In terms of the overall league, I would be looking to maintain Div 1 status, find a few new players to strengthen the overall panel and especially in positions where we are quite limited, get our long-term injured players back, integrate a couple of the Corofin lads (wont be too many!) and go into the championship with a bit of confidence.  Not asking for much really I suppose!   ;D
