Any word on Kieran?

Just 3 weeks out to the big game now. The last round of club games this week and then the county scene gets total attention. What are peoples perspectives on the team and panel?

Will Niall Kearns be a starter or on the panel?
Will Kieran Hughes be involved?
Jack or Mc carthy ?... Only one will start guaranteed.
Whos going to replace Darren Hughes ?
Mc Adam on Mc Kiernan?
Throw O Hanlon in ?
Conor Boyle starting ?
Barry Kerr experiment at centre back?

A lot of questions to be answered and the camp has been very quiet. Will Malachy stick to his philosophy of defense and start only 2 or 3 natural scoring forwards or will he go for it and throw Mc manus Mc carthy O hanlon, Carey, Mc carron and Mc anespie in the forwards and play football or more than likely he will go with Mc manus, O Hanlon, Mc anespie , Malone, Dessie Mone, Kelly.

A lot of maybes and probably we cant afford to go for it with our attacking forwards as we will be light on the bench then.

Good to see Mr Hughes back scoring 1-3 on his return to action tonight.

Great to see K Hughes back last night lads,him and Kearns in the starting 15 in breffni would give the team a massive lift!

Has Niall Kearns played any ball at all since his op? That is a major major surgery - I would be astonished if we see him back before 2020.

Thats a fair comment. We can and do use it as needed. Its not the only mode.

Is that really true or false rumours?
A massive loss to the team if true and a blow to our underage youth development programmes.

When we have a genius like mc manus, who is arguably the greatest player to put on a Monaghan jersey, then why not give him the ball. We will see in breffni who has the bottle in the last 10 and I can guarantee you that mc manus will be the man we will look to, whereas Cavan will throw the ball around like a hot stone.

There are s few Trojan Horses within our forum - hopefully you know who they are. One well established from last year & a new entrant this year. Best policy is to ignore. The reality is they wish they had a team like Monaghan to support, so I guess it's a bit of a compliment!

Barry Kerr dropped himself off the panel. Had asked for some time off as doing his final year exams and fair play to him, he took the right call for his own future and concentrated on his exams.

Barry Kerr, David Garland and Shane Garland have walked away from the panel.
Peter O'Hanlon is called into panel and training

Why hasn't Peter OHanlon been on the panel the whole year?
