What has Gumley from Ballinagh done to deserve a place on the Cavan starting 15?

Will we ever again see a Cavan HS thread that doesn't descend into muck? Jaysis...
Oisisn McConville backing Cavan in the media this week, the rest giving it the same old line. It is on.

Cavan can win if the ball is kicked directly forward from turnovers - no soloing out of defence it only gives the opposition backs time to get organised. This applies particularly to martin reilly. Martin please no soloing get the ball forward immediately.

He gave a man of the match performance in the County Final and showed a lot of his old skills are still there. A forward who knows how to score.

Are you talking about Gumley or Niall McDermott?
Gulley played in 2013 Senior final and didn't score.

Well now, how about that for a performance, absolutely brilliant, well done to team and management, some change in the space of a week.

Beautiful. Just beautiful. What a game! That was some battle but we showed incredible heart and resilience to come through that. I wasn't at all confident of our chances coming into this match but fair play to the lads, great result.

What a result!
Fair play to them! They deserve all the credit!
Gumley was unbelievable and was the difference...

Take a bow! Excellent stuff.
Where is the begrudger (caretaker) who was ran from around breffni who keeps knocking the team!

Have a look at the Monaghan forum page it's priceless. Never gracious in victory and certainly not in defeat. A real problem with the Cavan monkey on their back.

Well done lads, credit where it is due. A great benchmark for the championship and what the straight knockout can bring. Onwards to the Ulster final now and do Donegal or Tyrone, this Cavan team on their day can go far.

I think you are a little confused

Outstanding. Mickey and the lads show us that we shouldnt have doubted them. Fair play an magnificent victory given all the problems we have had this year.

Great win didn't see it coming

What a sweet sweet win that was.

Plenty of bad mixed in with the good, but that's for another day. Tonight we can savour a battling display i wasn't sure this group of players had in them.

They've silenced some doubters today no question.

Didn't see it coming either. Really week done all. Something to look forward to now. Don't you just love the GAA!

I am intensely proud to be a Cavan man today. One minute they have us despondent, the next euphoric. You can't say being a Cavan fan these past few years hasn't been eventful.

We have a real chance of making the final again, without getting too carried away.

Well done lads. Any day you dump that lot out of Ulster is a good one.

Replying To MadgeKing:  "Well said. Can we keep the discussion to the big game which is throwing in about 50 hours from now.

I must say, I had written off any interest in the championship but the closer it gets the more I am getting that sick feeling in the gut. The more I think about it the more hopeful I am becoming. That is not good!

Reasons for optimism

Midfield- this is they key one. if Thomas Galligan starts I think we have the clear edge. Meath wiped the floor with Monaghan the last day and they have very few real options. Niall Kearns would tip the scales in the other direction but he is going to miss out. James Smith adds to the advantage for sure

Gearoid- he is due a big game. maybe not from midfield though. If he can get 3-4 points from half forward we are moving towards win

Fitness- Cavan were stuck to the ground early on against Roscommon but still finished stronger. i am taking that as an indication of training schedule not lack of conditioning

Killian Clarke- lesson learned the last day, he is not ready. Best not to learn that against McManus

Scoring rate- referred to on the podcast how many chances the team are creating. Increase conversion by a few percentage points and it moves the scoring up significantly. Some days they just go over. Saturday maybe?

Monaghan's back line- unusually leaky of late. They are missing the big presence of Corey, Walsh and Mone. Drew Wylie has gone missing. Strange to say but they have not got that much cover defensively looking at their bench for the last 2 games

Stop McManus, stop Monaghan. We have heard a lot about the players coming through- Hanlon, McCarthy, Woods etc but they have not delivered big scores in any game. Cavan's defence knows what it has to do.

The X factor- Cavan's route to victory is unknown outside the panel. Stephen Smith, James Smith, Pierson, Cormac O'Reilly, Conor Smith. We know the quality of these lads and any one of them can make their name in 2 days time. That's a big contrast to the 'McManus plus 14' team facing us.

Tactical awareness- Mickey Graham has been struggling with circumstance but he has that innate football brain. I would back him to be able to prep a plan for the lesser team on paper. Seamus McEnaney has won nothing of note in a long career and seems to be reliant on being able to get a mercenary group of advisers in place. He also seems to panic in response to second half changes in momentum, with poor sub decisions made. Cavan have been finishing games well and can exploit that.

Discipline- most of Cavan's red card merchants have departed the scene. Monaghan have a few lads who regularly get the line when it matters. Ciaran Brannigan has history with a few of them so Cavan should ramp up the pressure from the off.

Slow starters v poor finishers is what we have. If Cavan can be within 3 to 5 points at half time then I think they will win the game."
Kudos for this post madgeking for some good analysis which turned out to be quite accurate bar piece on killian clarke who was excellent. Displayed great maturity as a team to put on that performance after which was a difficult result to take last weekend. Patience, bravery, teamwork and belief key characteristic shown in that performance and massive credit to the panel and management involved. Let's all row in behind now for next weeks game against a potentially tricky antrim side
