Didn't take long for false hope and naivety to take hold.

All last years failings forgotten and it taken as a given that we would beat the winners of Armagh or Down. LOL.

well, on form Monaghan will beat us.
As we seen from 2 games against Down recently there is nothing between us. In fact you could say we were very lucky to beat them. Armagh have been improving recently . I suppose though if we are good enough to beat Monaghan then we should be good enough to beat either of Down or Armagh but the reality is we are not good enough.

At least our new manager has a bit of sense. As he recently said, let's forget about winning Ulster and concentrate on winning a game in Ulster!

Of course Monaghans form is better than ours. A blind man would know that.
But if we can start playing a bit of attacking football and not this zonal defensive [email protected]@te maybe supporters will start supporting the steam again.
We are well use to losing around Cavan but the manner in how we lose that's p*sses off supporters. At least if Mickey gets them to have a go it will be half the battle.

So Monaghan it is.

Even though they're a better team than us (and have been for a couple of years now), we've run them close whenever we've played them. It's a local derby so we raise our game for it and anything can happen on the day. If we go out with the right attitude and the right game plan they're beatable - if Fermanagh did it, we can do it. I feel better about drawing Monaghan than if we'd drawn Tyrone or Donegal.

But obviously there's a lot of fupple to be played in the meantime, so let's see how we go in the league first and hopefully we get some good new faces on the panel during the McKenna Cup.

This is probably the best draw that Cavan's new management could have got. Donegal or Tyrone are realistically out of reach but the other 'top 3' Ulster team simply hate playing us (you could see this in McManus on the night of the draw). It is a shot to nothing for MGraham. No expectation and a lot closer contest than the outside media would think. Remember, this opponent always gives a so called weaker team a chance. Management have to drill that hard all spring. First priority is obviously the league but I would 100% take relegation and a win here.
Monaghan have struggled against aggression and mobility. Work to do over the winter for sure.

Look Monaghan are a better team than us but it will be a cold day in hell when Cavan lie down and take that against our neighbours. There are a lot of things we can do to be ready for them in the summer and give ourselves a chance of beating them on the day. They will be favourites and rightly so.

Any news on what players will be coming back into the panel. I heard Michael Argue will which is good news. Anything on Givney?

Obody should have to be coaxed back. If players are not interested enough in wearing the jersey we'll leave them where they are regardless what kind of a reputation or status they might think they have.
If Mickey can get them playing an attractive type of game where there's enjoyment for both players and spectators well we will be half way there.
I agree Monaghan are better than us . We nearly caught them a few years ago in the 1st round in Breffni only for some poor management decisions when we were a few points up.
Mickey has been around. He's been an inside forward himself and I'm sure an inside forward going back to his own 45 to pick up a pass will not be part of his tactics.

Argue, David Wright and Thomas Galligan would be three good midfield options.

I heard Niall McDermott is going travelling so he won't be back in but would like to see Jack Brady involved.

Niall McKiernan, Conor Smith (when back from injury), Gerry Smith would be good additions too.

Want to see Joe Dillon Junior back involved and big Liam Buchanan who missed pretty much all county football this year through injury
