Gutter journalism in the Sunday World today.

What was said and by who?

What dirt were they coming up with now?

Michael Kerr putting red diesel in the car, front page. Must have been struggling on Saturday night for a headline.

Strange match yesterday, real curates egg.

Obviously need to bear in mind that there has been minimal training and very little time for L&D to get thier  sytle of football ingrained.

Positives:

-Donaghy was immense - best since debut in a long time
-Finally (it looks like) a reliable right footed free taker
-McKenna looked good early on, maybe nbt his best position
-Losing McNamee to injury and O'Neill to playacting put us on the back foot but we still were within 2 at the end
- NO need to show hand this early: McShane, McAliskey, McCurry, Canavan all hopefullyávilable to play a greater role in bigger games

Negatives

-Not sure we can go Man2Man in defence just yet
-DnG still got the whip hand on us, mentally that needs overcome
-Still getting caught out on quick restarts
-Shooting very poor in patches
-Mattie and Harte quiet - not sure either are in the right position - Mattie in FF line or MF could work better
-MF still a major concern, every other top team has 1 if not 2 first class operators in that area, we have none
-Not really a negative, but we need to find a stable position for McKenna - it's asking a lot for him to come in with very little football and play multiple roles

Overall though - plenty to be encouraged about and no need to panic

Armagh next will be tough

Bradley & Canavan have to start IMHO.

Armagh showed yesterday they still cannot tackle and those two will win plenty of free kicks.

Donaghy was superb yesterday

Definitely need a couple more scoring forwards next day. MC Geary and burns should never both start. One or none. Agree with Mattie to midfield. He is wasted dropping too deep. I think we need more presence in chb and I'd probably go with hampsey. Honestly can't see a starting place for Peter Harte.
