Monaghan In The Qualifiers!

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


With the numerous successes from 2013 to present we are now considered one of the top teams in the country, For the first time in a very long time we are worthy of a manager and a backroom team who is up there with the top in the country too so lets try use that to our advantage and choose wisely.

You can say Malachy O'Rourke wasn't on the same level in terms of reputation as Gavin, McGuinness (he is now for sure) etc when he took over but we were a Division 3 bunch of nearly men who didn't look to be going anywhere.

What a joke.....check the facts......for practically the past 50 years Monaghan have been more successful than Cavan ....fact !"
Now your in denial...Cavan was always dominant over Monaghan teams. Granted the last few years . Fair play to Monaghan in them years.

Well as pointed out its 50 years that Monaghan have been the dominant of the two. I still don't see evidence of a trend that this has changed yet.

Just to get back to the match at the weekend.. and away from Cavan Trolls... the main difference in the the 2 teams was the size and energy that Armagh brought to the game.. Monaghan were well and truly beaten at the weekend.. the Monaghan players need to go and enjoy the summer and question themselves if they still have the hunger to compete.. not so many years ago Monaghan played Armagh and Stefan Campbell was in the pocket of the Monaghan defenders, they ate him up and spat him out for fun... at the weekend, he was dancing around pulling off reverse blind passes with no pressure on him...it was galling to see.. but that's what happens.. it's the ups and downs of sport and life.. Niall Kearns was outstanding during the match, he is something else!!!.. we still have good players and we have 4 home matches in Division one next year.. it would be good if the County Board would get a new Manager in soon, so they get to go around and watch the matches in the county before next year starts. There is still the Minors and the U20's to watch at county and plenty of good club matches to attend.. enjoy the rest of they year and all the best to Malachy and his back room team for all the good times that they gave the people of County Monaghan..

Well said & agree that the lads need to go & enjoy their summer & then make decisions. Important that we get behind the u20's & the minors, so that they experience the pride & passion that we have in the jersey. Honn the farney !

an illiterate reply...hardly surprising !"]Monaghan better than cavan since 2000. In the nineties both teams were poor. Monaghan good in 80s but both teams bad in 70s. Cavan good from 1910s to 1960s.

So I was right about monaghan this year. We played poor against ordinary teams in championship. We need to over come our favourite tag syndrome against weak teams.

Why do we struggle against weak teams? We have good players who on paper should beat cavan and armagh.

Thanks malachy for your efforts.

Do not see Sam coming to monaghan any time soon
