Reality Check

(Oldest Posts First)

in the last 80 years, Monaghan have won Ulster 4 times. when you take out Antrim/ Fermanagh who lets face it will never properly compete in Ulster there is 5 other teams, we are competing against. We have won one Ulster championship match this last 5 year going into 6 years. Yes that's right one win.

The year we got to the ALSF we beat Wexford, Leitrim, Waterford,Laois,Kildare and a Galway team already qualified. We have never beaten a Mayo, Kerry, Dublin, Cork team in championship football.

We have one of the smallest population in Ireland with no traditional of winning, We have never won an All Ireland and probably will never win one. Only one maybe two of our players would get on the team/panel of the big 4 or 5.

Who ever wins against Monaghan or Cavan it doesn't real matter as when it comes to the business end we will be long forgotten about.

It doesn't matter if we get Tony Mac, Pep, Jose or Jim McGuiness in charge as 2 or 3 years of being in charge we will be looking for their head and we will be on the look out for the Messiah who was done wonders with some Ulster club.

The sad reality as a proud Monaghan supporter, we are the Tranmere of the GAA and until people except that we have mangers / players that are doing the very best that they can do, we will forever looking to the next Messiah to turn things around.

USFC
2016. Monaghan 2-22 Down 0-09.
2017. Monaghan 1-20 Fermanagh 1-11.
Monaghan 1-15 Cavan 0-15 (In Breffni)
2018. Monaghan 1-18 Tyrone 1-16 (In Omagh)
That's 4 wins that I can see in the last 5 seasons. There was also a draw in 2016 v Donegal. Galway in 2018 had already beaten Mayo and Kerry and wanted to win to top the group so as to avoid Dublin in the semi final. Your post is a very poor attempt to justify what happened on Saturday. I say this as a Louth man who greatly admires Monaghan's significant achievements over the last number of years.

Green grass. That poster is not a Monaghan supporter. He was a happy man on Saturday & now trying to wind things up.
Best to ignore.
