Agh Blue and White its odious how you express your generosity with money. Ough Perhaps you got a legacy from America . But the great Mrs T says that its great how someone unknown to us would offer such a gesture,
But back to our County manager Galligan's panel, if you look at it these payer would have the following qualties,
No1 Generally conform to a set type of Club rules ( Cavan Gaels players do) during champinship
No 2 Most would be used playing at a high tempo ( Cavan gaels players do ) in Championship games.
No3 All senior club players know how to raise agame to County Standard
No 4 W A G S are not generally influential in dictating when, where a player trains or goes with teh County team.
No5 The big stage fright generally will not exist

These are a few reasons I am sure other good reasons may exist

I saw a picture of a 1967 Ulster Champions. This team was good enough to win an All Ireland Final. Alas, it never happened and we are still waiting since 1952 to have Sam Maguire back in Cavan. Imagine that some of us will die never having seen Cavan win Sam! Doesn`t bear thinking about.

I attended the all Ireland semifinal of 1967, between Cork and Cavan, and indeed Cavan were robbed. Score, as I remember was 2-7 to 0-12 and Cork were helped by some controversial refereeing decisions. Cork subsequently lost the final to an average enough Meath team by 1-9 to 0-9 after Billy Morgan made a goalkeeping error. I think Cavan would have beaten Meath and players like Charlie Gallagher, Ray Carolan and Gabriel Kelly would have got a deserved all Ireland medal.

Yes Raymond Carolon, Pat Tinnelly, Enda Mc Gowan, Phil Murray Airean Elliot , Ollie Leddt. Kieran o keeffe and the mighty Ollie Brady all missed out on All Irelands.
Yes all of these missed out on all Irelands medals

Raymond Galligan inherited a great team all be not many from West Cavan had made the big break through.
So that leave Ramond with little option but to go to the big teams to get his panel
Big Clubs or big teams generally install a sense of discipline in young players
so I say Raymond if you have two players same standard one from a small club one from a big club.... yes go for the big club man/player

Is that why he went for a junior player as captain??

It is evedent that you dont read Tomsmiths intelligent posts as you would know that the Tomsmith and indeed the great Mrs T always has respect for the small man or should I say the small country Club with its Farmers sheep dealers, Cow men, refuge workers, Turf cutters ect that strives to be as big as a Town Club .
In this case the Phycology is that all people are equal and that some even from small clubs can be great leaders.
I say Raymond s choice was excellent and he choose a great leader for this Cavan team

Tomsmith here on a Sad Monday for Cavan Football

Having watched the game against Armagh I am of the opinion that , we areaway off the pace in relation to ULster Footbal,
While Donegal drew with Armagh and we could have beaten Donegal we were taught a lesson yesterday .
What is the answer to our lack of effort, just being pushed aside, no killer instink ough I dont know,
I feel that Cavan must have better players, but where are these player, Ollie Leddy, Texas Brady, my own find David Givney, Faulkner ect.
These were men that stood up when men were needed .
What is your answer or will we remain silent and let us get disgraced

The 2 ollies are in their 70s, Givney was a 1 year wonder and Faulkner is injured....
