Replying To PatTheDandy:  "I am told Cian Madden is flying at the moment. Is he on the Senior or U20 panel?

Any word on who is looking like starting as our inside forwards for us?

Jack Brady playing at cb for Ramor, hardly great practise for him starting inside for the county..

I see Kevin Tierney is not playing for Ballyhaise so is obviously still on the panel and being minded? Didn't get much game time in the league either. Will he be used against Monaghan?

How many minutes is Mackey fit for or looking like getting?

Any word on what the starting team might be from challenge games or anything?"
Tierney played against Drumlane at weekend so I take it the chances are he won't feature against Monaghan.

I'll try and simplify this. last year for example against Donegal they were favourites and rightly so. they were a div 1 team and had been showing good form, we on the other hand yet again failed to win a league title and got out of what in my opinion was an easy enough div 2. add to that Dara Mc Veetys injury and we had little or no hope of winning.
this year we're playing (on league placings) a fellow div 1 team that's missing their two first choice midfielders. On the other side of the draw is a div 2 and 3 team. we may have got hammered by Monaghan in the league but we done the same to them in 2013 and monaghan came and beat us in the championship. so yes, this is one of those years where there should and is a realistic chance of an ulster final appearance."
The match is full of ifs, buts and maybes for both teams. A draw is likely.

I'm going on the basis that Caoimhin O'Reilly won't be fit to start.

Not sure what is happening re Seanie Johnston but I think you need your team to get stronger around the 50 minute mark so it'd be good to have him, Mackey and Caoimhin to spring off the bench.

We need a threat inside and I think McVeety is our best chance of that. Between Brady, Moynagh, Rehill and Smith there should be enough men to run at Monaghan.

Heard Cavan ran a strong Dublin selection to within a couple of points in a closed door challenge during the week.
A good score was racked up by letting the ball in long and early. It is a game plan that could cause Monaghan a lot of problems.

:D

It's a sign of the times when there's so little discussion about the game from a Cavan perspective, the Monaghan forum has six pages of discussion in comparison.

I guess it's down to a disappointing league which offered no evidence that we have improved.

It'll be interesting to see how many Cavan supporters show up on Saturday. It's not a matter of if we'll be outnumbered, it's a matter of by how much.
Hopefully we can get a win to attract a bit of interest in the team again.

The guys on the Monaghan forum think they should have no problem - that us and Armagh/Down are just standing in the way of them reaching the Ulster final. Anyone any idea of the make up of the team at all , will McKiernan play midfield or half-forward , personally I think himself and Gerry Smith should be midfield with maybe Kilian Clarke picking up McManus at the back and McVeety in full forward .

There won't be much in it on Sunday. It's all about who wants it the most.
If Mickey has us playing direct football , letting the ball in fast to the full forward line then I'd fancy us to get a result.
On the other hand if we play this 13 men behind the ball crap like we been playing since 2012 well it's going to be painful to watch and even harder to win.

Agree with your team.

Heard today, Seanie Johnson isn't involved or certainly wasn't up until this weekend so I'd be surprised if he's brought in this close to the game.

Lads, time to move on from Seanie, he is done. Good luck to him.

Heart says Cavan and head says Monaghan. Either way it should be a tight game. Monaghan have ace free takers in Beggan and McManus and we were terrible on Frees but with Gearoid back that may improve.

We should have the upper hand in midfield but with Beggan supreme on kick outs they may be able to minimise this. The question is can we really squeeze that Monaghan kick out and cause them to kick long to McKiernan in the middle.

Then where do our scores come from? Gearoid we would look to for 5/6 points but make no mistake, Monaghan will dedicate a man to hang out of him for the whole match and play no ball at all. Gearoid will have to be cute and get that man a yellow early on, make sure the ref sees what is happening. If Caoimhin Reilly can play a part and is up to speed that certainly puts a different dynamic on things. McVeety another man we need on top of his game.

We need a few things to go right and we need to get the upper hand tactically but I think it is possible we could sneak it. Looking forward to the game anyway.

If Cavan show hunger and remain tight, attributes synonymous with Cavan folk ,then you have a chance....

If Seanie is done as you say we must have found a few forwards that I don't know about from somewhere. Your only done when someone better comes along.
As regards Caoimhin o Reilly , he has the potential but his lack of match practice this past few months is a negative and I wouldn't start him .
We need to keep Clarke away from McManus because he can't handle him for 70 mins. 65mins not good enough when it comes to McManus.
Best of luck to the team and management . I'd settle for a 0-15 to 0-14 win.

So who will mark McManus for 70 minutes? I think if you can keep the best forward in Ireland (my personal opinion) quiet for 65 mins we are doing well. Only Mickey knows how ready Caoimhin is for a match and I am sure he will make the right call on that. I have a feeling though that he might be held back for a cameo. Which would mean I think that McVeety would play inside. I think we would all settle for any sort of win.

Dear Cavan friends - I am a season ticket holder & have been allocated a stand seat. My preference is not to be in the stand & my question is, do I have to use the strand seat or is it possible to access the terraces from the same turnstiles? Thanks

There are different turnstiles for the terrace, but they should still take the ticket anyway - all turnstiles are manned and most of the lads are sound and wouldn't have any issue letting you through.

Faulkner with Moynagh in front?

If Moynagh is on the field, he has to play sweeper. He doesn't man-mark and can't be allowed forward to take on ridiculous outside-of-the-boot pot shots.
