Best of luck to Cavan, if they play well they should be able to keep within 10 points of Donegal.

The way today is going it's hard not to think of how we , as the paying public whom the county board depend on have been let down again , such a farce, the buck stops with those that seeked election to the posts that the have . We are all still waiting on the excuses to come out .No one as yet held to blame for this shambolic set of events ..

Well done Cavan but from the Monahan point of view it's a chance of an Ulster title and All-Ireland semi-final thrown away through stupidity and trying to be smart when honesty endeavour was all that was called for. There's still an all ireland out there for the team that wants to grab it.

Fair play Cavan, mighty win and reputations counted for nothing. Tough men.

Fair play to Cavan wasn't hugely suprised. They have played with momentum in their games with right approach no fear in their play. Not sure if the free leading up to the goal was going for the high ball into the sq or a point but a lot of teams in that position including ourselves a point up ulster final would have tried to run the clock down with all that sideways passing which has destroyed gaelic football so was good to see.

Hearty congratulations to Mickey Graham and the Cavan senior team.
There is something very likeable about Mickey and it's very easy to see why his players will die with their boots on playing for him and Cavan.
In the build up to yesterday's game he didn't mention anything about being embarrassed by last years Ulster final defeat. He and his management team made of hard working men with no big blown up reputations embraced yesterday challenge in a very dignified and solid manner.
Yesterday proved Mickey Graham is a top class manager that took on the position to improve Cavan football. How I wish we had someone with his decency and ability.

When you goalkeeper is your second top scorer in championship football over the last few years, that itself tells a sad tale of MOR legacy... not surprised no county went chasing him, he's a good club manager

Shades of us in 2013 watching the scenes after the game yesterday. Leaving aside the rivalries for a second, it's great to see that sort of emotion after a big underdog win. Fully deserved by Cavan, and they didn't have an easy run of it coming from the preliminary round.

Pat Gilroy wants to put Monaghan and Cavan together as this is the only way we will be competitive. The fact something like this is being discussed is worrying. I am not surprised that the young kids heroes are players from Liverpool, Barc etc .. also making the intercounty shorter will give less exposure to our kids of the top players , the amount of soccer jerseys you see about on the kids is become worrying.

Gilroy just deflecting the discussion away from Dublin funding. It worked.

Well in fairness if you were a young coach forging a reputation you wouldn't want to be riding the titanic with banty over the next few years and being associated with a disastrous job
