Rory Gallagher

Should Malachy O'Rourke try to attract Rory Gallagher into the Monaghan set up for next season? They are fellow county men, I think Rory played under Malachy in Fermanagh. Would it give us an extra edge for the a tough Div 2 and Championship in 2014?

Malachy's priority should be to hold onto Ryan Porter who is rumoured to be going in the opposite direction.Porter has been the unsung hero of Monaghan's success this year

Agree with that, there new level of intensity in the Monaghan team this year, but IMO much more disciplined intensity. The defense was manic like against cavan and donegal where serious amounts of pressure were soaked up or turned over, without giving away free kicks. The work of Colin Walshe, Mone, Wylie, Corey etc getting turnover ball was unreal, and that is down to coaching. Hopefully Porter will stay.

Gallagher annoys me as he is always running on to the pitch jawing at the referee and bringing negative attention on to himself. I would say with Canavan leaving Fermanagh he may be heading that direction
