Monday match reports

With the draw for the preliminary quarter-finals on at 8.30 this morning, we’ve precious little time to be looking back to yesterday’s car-crash defeat to Cork. In truth, that’s no harm, even if within the camp there’s now a massive job to be done in a short space of time to get us up for next weekend.

Here’s a quick gallop through what’s online about yesterday’s game.

  1. Surely we are better than this?

    But are well really. Is there not a trend in our championship disappointments now since Tyrone 2021. Galway last year – never got going. Terrible v Kildare, but rallied (and Keegan and Mullin did the rallying), Roscommon – didn’t raise a gallop, Louth – never looked like losing but relied on their indiscipline, and now Cork. None of them great teams.

    Did we peak in the Spring? We were certainly flying when others were labouring and crawled over the finish line in the league but the Monaghan (with a changed selection) and Galway games were poor performances. Lethargic. Like yesterday. Roscommon under Kevin did the same. Top showing in Spring and worsening as the year went by.

    Not sure how the lads pick themselves up in 6 or 7 days, and how they would compete with Armagh, Derry or Dublin in Croke Park a week after that. For many reasons a quiet exit next week has merits or we could get an ugly beating.

  2. Sunday is our day of reparation – our chance to atone. Hope we get Gough as referee, Down official Paul Faloon was an utter disaster but tbh a number of players showed their inexperience yesterday, and as the vast majority of posters have noted the CL experiment at CH is a beaten docket – the Keegan, Boyle, Vaughan days of “Thou Shalt not Pass” a distant memory! Pull them down, delay them, ffs do something anything to stop them! But if you fould them not in the square!!!
