It's hard to know what stage teams will be fitness wise. Remember we flew out of the traps was it in 16 and had some great wins over big Div 1 teams but it was clear Roscommon peaked early. Armagh did something similar last year in the league. Based on that, we probably would have the best chance of upsets in our initial games. Tyrone can be slow starters and we should have beaten them in the Hyde a few years ago in the league. Galway away won't be easy. Weather will also play a big part in the league games. Very hard to call. The first two home games will be very interesting.

Armagh a winnable game.
After that would be nice to bate the 2 Connacht neighbours.
Well get nothing in Tralee and getting Tyrone first game is a good time to get them.
I have us on 12 points already....lol and all that"
Yeah, I'd be looking at Donegal, Monaghan, Armagh and possibly Mayo as very winnable games.
Hard to know what sort of a squad Tyrone will have, could be hopeful of getting something out of that one.
I think we can put the Kerry game in the bin and we could rattle Galway.

With Dublin gone I think Kerry is the only write off in the division now. No reason why we can't compete in every other game if we are well prepared. Will probably be Galway without Shane Walsh also as I'd expect Kilmacud to be in the club final on 21/22 Jan and I'd imagine he'll take a break after. Tyrone will be gunning for this year IMO and it's a tough one to start with.

True actually, Tyrone will have a big point to prove. I wouldn't take Donegal in the last game for granted either. Things might not be all rosey up there but if they get dragged into a relegation battle they will be hard bet in that game.

Davy Burke led Maynooth college to the Div 1 league title tonight. A college that had never reached a league final before. The Walsh brothers Colin, Darragh played well for the winners. Charlie Carty also on the panel.

Hard luck to Rossies involved with UCD Ben O'Carroll, Daire Cregg two starters who had some decent moment and Cathal Feely off the bench scored a good point. Ciarán Sugrue unused sub.

Good to see a good few Rossies doing well at 3rd level.
The number of lads involved at 3rd level is a good guide to strength at County level.
