Armagh Talking Points

Plenty to talk about

_talkingpoints

ahead of a massive week for Louth Football.

Talent

Before I get to the seriousness, can I just shine a light on Ryan Burns for a second.
The youngster carried the Louth challenge more or less single-handedly on Saturday night. When Armagh were fluffing their Lines the Hunterstown lad showed impeccable temperament to nail free kick after free kick. It was a performance well above his years and experience too. Afterall, this is his first league campaign!
Allow that to sink in for a second, because I think we’ve forgotten how young and how precocious a talent Ryan actually is!

Battle
The conditions were downright awful at times, we were down to 14 men for majority of the second half and away from home but my god did we battle!
We went down with a fight on Saturday night, literally!!
GOAL Question mark
The Melee at the end was sparked from a ball that possibly crossed the line. Ryan Burns hit a fourteen yard free low and hard and it perfectly skidded off the wet surface and bounced off numerous players shins.
I couldn’t tell whether the ball crossed the line from where I was but it looked like it was handled on the ground by an Armagh player or two and it certainly didn’t look like a free out!
In my opinion the referee panicked and safest decision for him and his safety was to blow for free out.

Limerick Next
So Limerick decide to flipping win yesterday, lovely!

It means Clare, Limerick Sligo and ourselves are on 4 points.
Clare and Sligo are at home to both already promoted Armagh and Fermanagh not ideal.
We play Limerick also at home next Sunday, basically in a winner stays up, do or die game.
We can not afford to go down!

I’ll have more on this crucial game all this week so tune in!!!!

Correct and Right….I don’t want my mind to go there too risky of a mindset to have going into such an important game!

I believe a draw will do us against Limerick as the head to head will be equal and we will have better score diff
