No Sean I genuinely have no clue what you were going on about in your post. I don't even know where you would insert "brady" into it.

If you're not going to debate in good faith, by making clear, concise points, then don't bother. Several people have questioned you now on one of your rants, and you still haven't clarified.

Replying To The Quiet Man:  "Can you afford to carry for I can tell you Tyrone will have him carded so fast it's unbelievable and they will have done their home work on these weaknesses. Thats only on the corner back. Yes Jason was roasted two weeks ago but he has served Cavan well with discipline and tenacity. A midfielder and a forward have been named and to be honest I hope they start for Tyrone will show everyone they are not inter county standard. Joe Dillion and Faulkner destroyed them a few years ago and these two players are still being talked about as the best Cavan have. If Micky was to start these then I would fear for Cavan's future."
I read this last night and couldn't make sense of it.

I tried again today and I think I've managed to crack it.

You're referring to a midfielder and a forward from the same club in Cavan, currently on the panel, who got destroyed in a game against Kingscourt a few years back?

I think I know who you're referring to, but like the lads above, I'm not 100% sure if that's what you're even suggesting.. It's a disgraceful post if you are.

Either way, why don't you name a starting 15 and suggest how you think they need to set up to play Tyrone?

Some fans are totally deluded on here. Mickey Graham took Cavan to the first Ulster Final in years, he managed a small parish team to a Leinster Club Title, and yet, we have people on here questioning his team selection for the Ulster Final! There were a few injuries around the camp and up until late Friday night, some players underwent fitness tests, some players were left on the bench because they weren't fit to start or indeed last 70 minutes, but in any case, it matters not who started or finished, the simple fact of the matter is Donegal are a far better team than Cavan.

Cavan conceded 1:11 in turnovers - turnovers, because some of our so called experienced players lost the ball by doing silly things. The keep kicked at least 3 balls directly into a Donegal players hands, if a kid did that at underage, it would be understandable, but at inercounty its inexcusable. How many times was Gearoid McKiernan standing in the middle of the field when the Donegal keeper kicked the ball over his head, sure;y after the first kick, McKiernan should have read the script.

As I said, the manager can pick the team, he cant make the decisions on the pitch, its up to McVeety not to carry the ball into the tackle and lose it, its up to defenders to mark their men, its up to the keeper to kick the ball out properly, up to the midfield to read the kickouts, the forwards to kick the ball over the bar, its up to every single player on the pitch to make intelligent decisions.

Thats the different between good players and great players, is intelligence - you can get most club players up to inert county fitness, strength and condition them etc, but unfortunately, if a 22/23 yr old doesn't have footballing intelligence by that age, then he'll never have,

Have you become a Judge now.
I have not got a clue what post you are on about so if you wish to copy and paste I will check and see if it requires my undivided attention or not.
You want to question me or anyone for that matter show your face you know who I am it's no secret.

Faulkner for McShane, McLoughlin for McCurry, Killian for Donnelly,McAveety for Peter Harte,let Peter Harte worry about McAveety going forward.For this game put Thomas Galligan in the middle with Gearoid and Conor Brady as third midfielder.Despite the new style of play,I reckon this will revert to a defensive counter attacking game.,might suit McAveety and Stephen Murray coming forward at pace.Press up on kickouts and fight like dogs in middle third.

You were deluded last year saying Cavan would beat Donegal in Ballybofey. Now you're clubman is manager Donegal are way ahead of Cavan.. Which most knew they were 12 months ago

Genuine question, and I hear and see loads doing it, why do you call him McAveety? It's McVeety, there's no A in his surname...

Peter Harte worry about McVitty? You are having a laugh?
Have you watched Peter Harte play?
He's been a thorn in our side this past few years . Shackle him and we are half way there. To think he's going to be worried about McVitty your badly mistaken.
McVittys biggest problem is running up blind alleys and getting turned over time and time again.

Because they're the best we have.

Take a look at O'Neill and Burns for Armagh. The likelihood is that Armagh will become a force to be reckoned with in the coming years because they'll build a team around these guys. Both are only 21, yet in this years championship played like seasoned veterans. In their debut seasons.
That's because both have natural football intelligence.
