Looks like 10 points will guarantee promotion now after Armagh's big win tonight agains Fermanagh. They and Roscommon have 7 points with two games to go so for Cavan to be sure of promotion they need to win their own games. Even 9 points might suffice.

The winners of Armagh and Roscommon will be promoted even if they are beaten in their final game.

We can still be relegated if we lose our final 2 games.

I think the Kildare game is a must win. It changes the entire complexion of the Roscommon game then.

We could even be playing a Ros team who are already promoted and who could be using the game to size us up ahead of a league final.

We are like meath, once a great team. Not any more.

Needs to be a 10 year plan put in place starting with a proper coaching structure in clubs. Bringing all the kids to a county run training session every month to teach and enhance their skills.

Continue that structure the whole way up year after year. Have 2 squads at u15, 16, 17, 20. Keep competition for places.

Would take a big performance for Roscommon to win in Armagh, though not beyond them. McGeeney in his 6th year with Armagh, they need to get promotion more then any other team in the Division and probaly will.

Kildare haven't shone under O Connor but won't want tier 2 football. Kevin Feely one of their better players against Laois, athletic midfielder.

They are won in the semi final and sister finals by big decisions and big players. It shouldn't be hard to get a team up for an Ulster final.

So we have no talent yet have managed to make Division 1 in 2 of the last three years. We could be back again to make it 3 in 5 next year.

Nail on head.
The level of coaching going on at underage level is not at the level required, Other counties are streets ahead.
We've gone from having ultimate professionals like Joe McCarthy, Peter Donnelly, Finbar Reilly, Peter Reilly etc involved with our underage teasm to people that aren't up to that standard and our minor/u20 teams have slipped greatly in recent years.

That could be it for the year now lads no league finished and no championship is my guess to what will happen.

If the league stops here for this season, will there be promotion and demotion in each league with current positions? If so that Clare result cost us promotion

We are not near good enough for Division 1 in any case.
We may have been relegated if League had finished as I can't of seen us gaining any points vs Kildare and Roscommon hence leaving us on 6 points with both Clare and Kildare having the head to head on us. If Westmeath beat Laois and Laois beat Fermanagh we would be heading for the drop unless we picked up points.

if the league stops now, all teams will start next year in the same divisions and tier 2 will be postponed till next year. There'd be too many complaints if there was promotion/demotion with rounds still to be played.

The way things are going, you could be looking at no championship, never mind league being finished. The ROI have done the best thing to try curtail the virus but the North have slipped up badly so the 6 counties and their supporters can't be let near a stadium.

Club leagues are finished for this year too..maybe a knockout championship in each county if it all clears up soon but your probably looking at minimum a couple of months before things can start getting back to normal, then everyone will need a pre-season again (clubs and counties) so the whole season might be wrote off and start afresh next year - Which would be the correct thing to do...it's only a pastime/hobby at the end of the day, its not even remotely important until people can start going back to work, schools can reopen and people can stand within 2 meters of each other
