Hate these damn out of date mushrooms!!!
Totally agree with the assessment of how we should do in the first round, although, heart stopping as it would be, I'd take a single score win. It's still a win and yes not very stylish or convincing, but let's be totally honest, if we scrapped to an All Ireland final and played the worst, most boring game ever seen and won it by a point, history would show we won, not the manner of the win. I'd be elated and off work for a year............ok maybe not that long as I've done that in the past year and it wasn't nice, but you get where I'm coming from!!
Let's concentrate on game one first and see what happens as someone else said. Sorry but I don't buy into the "if we don't annihilate teams we're a failure!" line. I just care that we win one at a time and see how far it takes us. Don't worry about who's next or even who could be next. No point in that until we know we meet someone next!
Absolutely, Jimbo. Great post.
Monaghan messed about and Cavan caught them last year. But Cavan were no dozers, as they proved later on.
But it’s a whole new year. What happened in the past is irrelevant. We’re all starting from scratch.
Our "league" fixtures:
So I take it Banty and the boyos are getting punished for training with losing home advantage.
Can’t argue with that “league” schedule, to be honest!
You are expecting Antrim to go well in Division 4 then?
A bit of pressure on the first league game. But get a win there and we can relax.
Antrim shouldn’t present a problem in the championship. Any semifinal was likely to present a reasonable quality opponent but it’s difficult to argue that isn’t a pretty perfect draw
What's the situation with the squad at present? Is Ross McQuillan involved? Obviously big Andy will be injured and Jamie on a sabatical of some kind but bar that is it pretty much same squad as last year?
Seems like he's hilarious, but I'll bet he didn't have to google to find out who Armagh are!!
I don’t get it.

No Jamie this year apparently.
What a waste of a talent.
As I suspected. Not a major loss at this stage as he simply doesn't score enough but a loss all the same. At least he's made his call now - good luck to him in his future endeavours.
Why is it a waste of talent?
Heard Armagh were beat by Meath today by 10 points today in challenge game, not sure what sort of team they had out
