I genuinely haven't much interest to be honest and generally at this time if the year I'm gearing up for top class games in football and hurling.

It's just a glorified division 1 league shootout minus mayo but with Roscommon in a format that really only serves to make the strong stronger and the weak weaker.

Any of the Ulster teams - not fussy which.

I just hope that most of the games are competitive and we arent left with dead rubber games at the end. I'd love to see a team go out and play all out attack and get rewarded for it!
Personally I dont think we have 8 teams strong enough for this to work the way the Munster hurling cship panned out this year where everyone could potentially beat everyone on any given day.

It probably will just make the strong stronger and the weak weaker. Hopefully they can find some ways of decreasing the standards gap between the top and bottom but it won't be in 2018. It's what we have now and potentially there could be some cracking games left in a championship that seems to me that has had a few decent games already.

All neutrals should be getting behind the men from Kerry who are the only team left who gave the firepower to take on the Dubs.

Not true. Donegal do too plus they have a better defence.

Galway and Donegal for me. Probably won't happen, but can still dream.

If I was neutral then I would be shouting for Roscommon, Kildare & Monaghan.

Everyone else left in the competition has won the AI in my living memory.

And out of those 3, Monaghan to see a new name on Sam.

Have lost interest since Mayo went out...that said I would like to see Kildare do well but can't see them getting to a final. Dublin winning the All Ireland again would be the easiest pill to swallow

Bitterness from cavan as they watch us become the kingpins in Ulster. Beat Dublin and Kerry already this year. Sam is on the way.

Donegal are Ulster kingpins actually.

Novice grade WUM work there... you need to hone your craft young man!

It all points to a protracted process of getting a Dublin Kerry final. would be great if a re-invented Donegal could spoil that party

No place here for you cavan man. This forum is for counties with pedigree only. Back to club football for you.
