Armagh - Cynical Armagh

I was in the Gaelic grounds in Armgh last night. I was impressed with the stadium and I hope that we can at least reach it's standard when building our new ground. I was far from impressed however with the cynicism in Armaghs tackling. I've seen it with the likes of Tyrone or Donegal but was surprised to see that Armagh are copying their style. Armagh had a reputation of playing hard but fair. Speaking of fair play, the actions of your Maor uisce near the end was disgraceful. It was obviously a planned tactic to try to disrupt the opposition.
All in all Armagh lost not just the game but their reputation so well done there.

Unless it involves Cross your not getting a reply. Not much interest in county team on this Forum!!

Good man joej. You are probably right. It was read by about 200 people so I am taking it that no response means guilty as charged.

ged and joej I couldn't get to the game the other night but i am disappointed to hear of cynical tactics being used by Armagh, as you rightly say Armagh were never a county to do this and always played hard and fair. Hope we move on from this and start to play some better football when the team is settled. Good result for Louth and as our neighbours I'd like to see them going on a good championship run.

Donegalman I'd agree with footiemad, I'd save my money as Armagh have too many players missing etc to even pose a threat, hopefully come championship time we'll be better placed.

It been a bleak few years for the maroon. We would appreciate the points and effectively winnning Division 2. I would have loved to see Jamie Clarke in action in Mullingar hopefully you do not have a ready made replacement.
