Replying To Donegalman:  "Bookies have us red hot favs at 3/1 on and Cavan 3/1."
Bookies aren't always right, rem the Dublin game in 2014, according to the bookies we hadn't a snowballs chance in hell, if there is any bookie giving 3/1 on Donegal I might have a few quid on that though.

That may be so but I am responding to your assumption that we are marginal favorites, which we are not - not by a long way. That's officially so according to the bookies and not hearsay.

Cavan done really well to get this far which is long overdue given the underage success. Mickey Graham is obviously a really good manager and brought a togetherness. I am sure there will be a huge Cavan support at the game and I expect a much more competitive game than last years final. In Killian Clarke, McKiernan, McVeety, Reilly and Moynagh to name a few Cavan have some quality. However I think Donegal will just have too much fire power. While Tyrone got alot wrong at the weekend Donegal still did play some great attacking football. As seen against Fermanagh they can play the patient game, against Tyrone more counter attacking while in last years championship very attacking. Donegal can play it a few ways and the sounds from the camp are that complacency won't be a problem. So while I think Cavan will put up a decent showing think it will be Donegal by 4 +.

Having rewatched Cavans games they look really impressive and clinical. Will be a big ask to keep mc veety and co quiet.

29k sell out. Pity they didn't get that 38k stadium in Belfast sorted this would have filled that. It's a shame what's going on up north.
