Armagh just laboured over the line but i'll take that all day long. Have a mammoth task to try and defeat this Donegal team. Tyrone and Donegal would be the 2 best teams in Ulster so Armagh have it all to do. On the flip side there will be little pressure on them as Donegal will be red hot favourites. Will this game be in Clones? And is it safe to assume it's in two weeks time?

Yes two weeks away.

Mixed feelings towards that Armagh game. 

Armagh again showing they are incompetent of putting the game beyond doubt when its all in their favour, Donegal will tear them apart if they give them the 10/15mins of a purple patch Armagh seem to be allowing teams at the moment.   

Their forward line as expected firing on all cylinders, and their defence looked more assured and confident.  Iím not sure if the bad conditions favour the Armagh backline, but they looked good today.

Derry were ok and showed glimpses, but even when they taken the game back to a point their body language said gave the impression they would not win. 

Some great scores from both sides also considering. 

On the Mc Kernan incident, I think itís a bit of gamesmanship taken to a new level and takes away from the ethos of the game.  Iím sure he will look back on that with a bit of embarrassment/disappointment.
I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack...

Thought the 2 keepers were very good but blaine hughes in particular was excellent. His kickouts were brilliant.

Honestly, imho underwhelming, was keeping an eye for him to see what extra he brought to the team, but nothing special.  A solid league next year should be more of an indication of how important he will be for Derry.

No. 7 should get a red for that dive. Typical Tyrone..if it's not hair get ruffled, it's a tickle to the ear.

In fairness a few Donegal not shy to hold the head when been tackled.

I'd give them lads another 6 months and see what tbey're like then.  Unfair to judge them niw and them only back a few weeks.

They'll be decent assets I'd imagine when they settle into it.

I thought it was a risk that didnít pay off playing Glass he hasnít had enough game time.

Give him a few months of training and Club football and I think he could be a force for us but he was thrown in there and wasnít ready for Championship.

Just thought Donegal closed that game out yesterday very well. We got them back level, 1-9 apiece and then two great scores to win the match. Their goal and the last two points meant they were deserving winners on the day. That said Tyrone could have won. The two frees brought forward were criminal. In a game of small margins those were give aways. Tyrone were scrambling in the final 10 minutes, Donegal showed more composure and their bigger more powerful men were better in the conditions.

Donegal have a right chance this year. Pity the likes of Dublin or Kerry don't have to travel to Ballybofey for a knock out Championship match in the mud and rain. That would test them.

We don't have enough in terms of big strong athletic players and I'd say the thinking was he could compete physically with the more imposing Armagh players. Glass did Ok. Would we have anyone who would have done any better at MF?
I'd have been tempted to throw glass into FF for 10 mins and kick some ball in on top of him to see what would happen.
If nothing else, it will help bring him on for next season.

Bitterly disappointed with the game yesterday on so many levels.

I have defended him in the past but MH had a stinker yesterday - McCurry, Canavan & Kennedy all taken off when other players underperformed is sickening.
McKernan - he got tapped and dropped but then the laying on the ground for 3mins topped it all!
Why did Brennan get the yellow card? He either hit him or he didnt. Red or nothing.
Cavan Joe (the above incident aside) done ok I thought, in difficult conditions.
We missed a lot of simple scores in last 10 - including taking a point when there was a goal opportunity.
Mouthing at referees & the ball moved up has to stop.
Donegal will destroy Armagh - difference in intensity between both games was clear as day

I did.

One one level it was a stupid irresponsible thing to do and he should rise above it rather than take the bait. In addition it was taking a mans personal life into it.

However other people will say JB is giving out abuse so he has to expect to take some back no matter how low it is. Brolly has taken plenty of cuts at players. Doubt he will take another cut at McKernan when he sees what could be coming back.
