Replying To thewayiseeit:  "Kesh gfc. . . 'Lean defence' . . . We conceded 2-12 . . How would you consider that as a lean defence . . . I am all for developing a more attack based style but we can't forget the fundamentals of defending that we had developed well over the past few seasons . . . .We were wide open down the middle when they ran at us . . . The quicker McMahon is back the better to help plug that hole"
Its a long time since I saw so few Fermanagh supporters at a match but those who travelled got their moneys worth. Congratulations to players and management on a refreshing display of direct attacking football. Hopefully we have seen the last of players soloing across from one sideline to the other and back again. Great to see Ryan getting his mojo back and hope Eoin can start moving the ball quicker and picking off a few long range scores. A few performances like Newbridge will keep us in Division 2.

Rich of that Dub with half the population of the country making jokes about a county with 10 senior clubs.

Replying To PatTheDandy:  "Again cannot fault the lads for effort yesterday. Overall they exceeded expectations in this camaign. The fear would have to be that when we cannot outlast teams or have the energy to suffocate them with runners and scorers coming from everywhere, that we may not have the guile and firepower to unlock defenses enough, and end up playing in front of a screen and depending on frees. My guess would be we will be on the receiving end of 3/4 point defeats in the last two games unfortunately, but my gut feeling is that it should be enough to stay up at the expense of 2 of Fermanagh, Laois, Westmeath. Young Pierson has stepped up a good bit in fairness, and will hopefully keep progressing but we need a lot more improvement in the forward line individually and as whole to put a dent in Monaghan in the c'ship, now looking forward. Mgmt. will need to find someting extra or different than we have seen so far to do so, but I'm not even sure myself what that might be off the top of my head. McKiernan's lack of form excluding the Laois game would also be a worry."
You obviously weren't watching him against Fermanagh.

Replying To BigToeJoe:  "Offensive comments show someone who has no answers and has to resort to such demeaning language. The point I was raising that Fermanagh DO NOT have someone as special and talented as the likes of Seamie Quigley and if they had it would be a great asset going into the game with Mayo. Tomas Corrigan and Sean Quigley do measure up somewhat in my thinking for no quite there yet in comparison ranking. Let's us remember 2004 when Fermanagh, against all the odds, reached the All Ireland semi final to draw with Mayo and then the team had special and talented players in Owens, McGrath, Brewster, Tinney, etc. So there you have my logic and I have refrained from any insultse. So gotmilk, some etiquette training wouldn't go amiss with you mate!"
Nobody doubts or disputes the enormous talent of the man you refer to - he could have been an Allstar! Unfortunately talent is only half the deal. Comitment and Loyalty are as important if not more so. He's still a young man and all genuine Fermanagh fans would love to see him turning things around.

Replying To TurnipHead.:  "I agree DD as given the importance of the Armagh game and the venue change isn't helpful and is very likely to reduce the number of travelling Fermanagh supporters. Fermanagh need a win against Armagh to secure their placing at the top, that's assuming that they beat Clare and that Kildare beat Meath this weekend. The biggest hurdle I see for Fermanagh is in their round 7 encounter against Meath away and that will be the real decider how well Fermanagh has done in this year's NFL. Hopefully, that assessment hasn't confused the mass between your ears! By the way, just for clarity, your reference to the pain the word in your postings is spelled incorrectly and correctly should include an "r" and an "e" and one "s" less!"
Fermanagh has already done very well and if they can get a result against Clare tomorrow they can experiment and enjoy the Armagh and Meath games.

Not too late yet lads for New Year Resolutions or do we have to suffer another year of infantile drivel.

Replying To luisfigo:  "i was at that game, we were actually favourites to win. Rory Gallagher scored 2 penalties and a great fisted goal. However he had 5 other forwards playing alongside him. If he was playing for Fermanagh now he would be lucky to score 2 points. As for our defensive set-up being very strong, I would like to think so given that we are defending with 14 men. Supporters and players are fed up watching with this ultra defensive football. Winning isnt everything, gaelic football is a sport for everyones enjoyment ."
It would be hard to name a team at the moment which doesn,t defend with 14 men when they lose possession. Look at Galway/Roscommon yesterday,or even Dublin. Our problems arise when we get possession. Our inability or reluctance to move the ball FORWARD with speed, purpose and intent has been and remains our biggest failing. It is the part that makes scores difficult to get, makes us awful to watch and subject to ridicule by commentators and analysts countrywide. We persist with pointless solo runs across the pitch and passes sideways and backwards to give our opponents time to get their 14 men behind the ball and dispossess us. Notable and pleasant exceptions to this plan are the Cullen brothers who attack up the middle at speed. It would also help if we could find a target man in the full forward line who can beat his man to a high ball. If we dont address these weaknesses, Roscommon, Cavan, Armagh and perhaps others will finish above us.
