Poor auld Cavan, completely written off by most, including myself, can they do a Tipp?

Replying To JoeSoap:  "Thompson another big loss. Big day for McCole"
Think Thompson is ok, it's just a tactical switch.

Not for the first time I've noticed Donegal players know how to scream, shout, bang their fists to the ground; you'd think watching them they were the victims of a serious assualt. Ref fell for it again here and gave a black card; shocking tactics. Needs to be highlighted because they get away with it time and again.

Ryan gets pulled off the ball non stop literally every match. He is fed up with it and constantly shouts for the refs to do something, and they do absolutely nothing. Ref got this one wrong as it was definitely accidental but I don't blame Ryan for losing it as he ends up on the ground off the ball more often than not because opposition try take him out of it.

Strange if that is the case. He has arguably been our best player so far this year.

Come on everything has happens on a football field in the modern era is well thought out. What happened today was at a time Cavan had huge momentum; it changed the whole game for ten minutes and stopped Cavan's great start - it was tactics and it isn't the first time as neutral I've noticed Donegal players do it. Every player in every team gets pulled etc but throwing yourself to the floor and then screaming and shouting doesn't happen in every team.

I hope it's highlighted on the SG and media because it's going un noticed.

Cavan are tackling like demons, if they maintain that attitude and effort they won't be far off it.

Cavan should be ahead in all honesty. We've had a small purple patch where we showed what we can do but outside of that we've been extremely sloppy in my view. Cavan well in this.

This ref isn't up to job. Two elbows on the head and nothing. A clear and good mark completely ignored. Arguably an accidental trip is black carded all against Cavan. Not saying he's being purposely against Cavan but he's missing these major decisions. Not good enough.

Believe what you like Sam, it's been happening to Ryan ever since he burst on the scene in 2014. Tomas O'Sé saying it is a black card so it's not as plain as you think.

Big teams always get the calls.

Cop yourself on. It was a black card. Ryan Mc Hugh constantly gets taken out off the ball and gets serious hits. It nearly finished him with football due to a fractured skull and numerous concussions. Don't let your anti Donegal feelings blind your judgement
BTW we're playing poorly and could be caught here.

Awful referee. He has got a lot of stick for not giving Donegal anything in previous games by some of their supporters so was always going to be in the back of his mind for this big game.

Donegal's purple patch came during the 10 minute sin bin. Cavan will be extrembly frustrated Donegal got away with their tactics. Cavan well in it though.

Replying To Fionn:  "Still a very strong and excellent Donegal team.

Expecting them to win today and could be some battle with Dublin in the semi final."
Dubs will beat us out the gate if we win here, we've only been talked about because Kerry are out and the people need somebody else to point to as the Dublin challenge, we weren't mentioned before that.
