LOUD & CLEAR

COLM SHALVEYTALKING POINTS Monaghan supporters who made the long journey south would have hoped to have seen added freshness and hunger to their team’s performance, but there was little of that to be seen in a one-sided first half where Kerry set the terms of engagement. Monaghan were punished time and again for cheap turnovers as Kerry brought real intensity to their tackling, inviting opponents to run down blind alleys into heavy traffic. Monaghan coughed possession up 11 times during the first half, with Kerry turning many of those errors into ...

COLM SHALVEY TALKING POINTS Monaghan really needed to build up a considerable lead in the first half, but a hangover from the losing run in the league may have contributed to a lack of confidence at times on Sunday. Monaghan got some joy from pressing the Cavan kick-out, but save for a quick one-two of points from Conor McManus and Jack McCarron towards the half-hour mark, they were unable to turn that into any sustained momentum. The hosts looked to have timed their run well when Michael Hamill’s debut goal was ...

COLM SHALVEY TALKING POINTS No strangers to a relegation battle in their ten-year stint in Division One of the Allianz NFL, Monaghan find themselves in familiar territory with just over half of the current campaign gone. The openingnight fireworks at Croke Park feel like quite a while ago now, given the downturn in results and form since then, with Monaghan’s score difference taking a bit of a battering over the course of three straight defeats. While some teams have managed to step up their performance levels in recent weeks – exhibit ...

MONAGHAN V KERRY

COLM SHALVEY REPORTS Monaghan hadn’t won a league or championship game minus both Conor McManus and Darren Hughes since 2013, while you had to go back even further to February 2006 (v Dublin at Parnell Park, as it happens) for the county’s last top-flight victory without their two most-experienced campaigners.
