Cavan have been fielding strong sides already TC! I'd say 2/3 of the team will be in the mix come Championship time. It's all about the league for Terry this year that much is obvious.
Flanagan and McLoughlin both injured. Clarke, Argue and McVeety will be with the U21s. Jack Brady is with DCU. Then you have Martin Dunne who will hopefully be fit to start.
We have a fantastic record in Brewster recently at all levels but I don't remember the last time we beat Tyrone at Senior level. Tyrone will likely play a strong team and it's going to be a huge step up. I think we'll give a good account of ourselves and depending on how strong Tyrone show on the night we could even turn them over.

The Sheepstealers need beating in the Hastings Semi Final in Ballinalee earlier the same day.. All donations to the petrol fund for this Saturday are welcome.

Both teams picked. Cavan same as last day - you're right, when I looked at it, I saw 8-10 regulars.

Tyrone have picked their strongest side so far, but not the strongest available.

I think we will be hoping for a big performance.

A watershed 20 minutes for Cavan yesterday. Most vital game of the league to date, a win to put some distance between ourselves and the chasing pack and put ourselves in prime position for promotion or a loss to fall back with the dross. 5 points down in Breffni midway through the second half. No Alan Clarke, no Eugene Keating, no Killian Clarke or Michael Argue. Went on to outscore Sligo 1-7 to 1 point. Fantastic stuff, 3 tough games left but depending on other results one win could see us promoted. Mackey, Dunne, Martin Reilly, Gearoid McKiernan all to the fore. Barring an almighty collapse we should be playing Division 2 football next year.


Attention turns to Celtic Park on Wednesday night. Derry fancy their chances, Cavan have 25 lads any of whom could get a starting place apart from Argue, Clarke, Moynagh, McVitty and Madden there are no nailed on starters and the lack of real quality from 12-15 is more of a worry than it has been for the last fantastic 3 years at this level. Expectations within the panel are massive and another run to unearth a couple of Senior panelists would be great to see.

With a winning ratio in 2014 almost as good as Leitrim's, a Drumgoon man in the GAA White House, sitting with the Sheepstealers at the summit of our Division, it's a good time to be a Breffni blue.

**Special mention for the week goes to Ronan Flanagan. Cancer patient towards the end of last year, starting for Cavan yesterday evening. Inspiring fellow.

Cavan come out of Celtic Park with a win.  cheers 

Tyrone come to Breffni next weekend.. We shocked them in the Minor Semi Final in 2011 with 2 goals from Big Conor Finnegan.. Has the makings of a fantastic game. Michael Argue the one to watch from Cavan this year, Senior appearances last year and kicked 4 points from play tonight from Midfield.

So Cavan will be promoted with a win in Pearse park on Sunday? Longford have some key players back now and can be difficult to beat at home i also think they have a decent record against Cavan? As for the U21s they are shaping up well again but Tyrone will be Cavan's biggest test in Ulster.

More or less. If we beat Longford only Limerick can catch us and they'd have to win all of their games. Cavan have a terrible record against Longford, I was at the qualifier in Breffni in 2011 when they hammered us out the gate and I really think that was a low point for Cavan. Longford were going well at the time but I've never seen Cavan as bad, it would have been one of Johnston's last games for Cavan, I believe he was captain at the time.

Longford are coming off the back of two wins and they'll know if they can beat us they're in the mix for promotion. Cavan have named Keating which is a huge bonus and gives us a focal point in attack. I think it will be very very close tomorrow, promotion is there for this team they just need to reach out and grab it. There is no reason Cavan can't win this game. H'on Cavan!!

Division 2 status for 2015 secured. Stuttering up front but rock solid in defence, still no goals conceded. I expect this to be put to the test against the free scoring Roscommon next week. Now a chance to use the panel, get the injured players back fit in a comfortable setting before the League Final and then look to the Armagh game. Keating, Alan Clarke, Argue and Killian Clarke all to come back into the starting 15.

Attention now turns to the U21s who welcome Tyrone to Breffni on Wednesday night. It's a massive task and they'll have no fear of us or our U21 record. Injury leaves Argue and Madden doubtful and Nevin O'Donnell looks to be out for certain.

Hugely important. Last year was a missed opportunity but, fair play, it has been put right in the least possible time this season.

It may not be pretty, but it is working.

Failing to secure promotion would have been a huge blow. The team really matured in the Championship last year and in the past two games have stepped it up a gear when it was required.

What's the feeling about the U21 game TC?

I don't think Cavan were in the running for promotion last year? Fermanagh were and missed out.

Great stuff from Cavan so far this year. Longford can prove doughty opponents by times and with the weight of expectation on them the Breffni Blues delivered the goods. Wasn't pretty I gather but.....

I was referring them missing out on going up, and that 2014 player development and championship preparation would have been better if they'd been in division 2 this spring. JS knows what I meant, as it's been discussed a couple of times on here already.

I know little about this Tyrone U21 side, JS. Cavan at home will be very tough to beat. I'd be surprised/impressed if we won.

Cavan recovered from a poor start in losing to Antrim to win their next two games and had we beaten Fermanagh in Breffni we would have been well in the mix but Damien O'Reilly was sent off early on and we couldn't manage to reign Fermanagh in.

I don't think a win against Fermanagh last year would have been enough as Cavan finished on 7 points while the two promoted sides Meath,Monaghan had 10 points. Has been suggested Cavan would be promoted a few years ago if they played their U21s but i'm not sure about that theory.

Yes but going into the Fermanagh game all was still to play for, although we would have needed someone to do us a favour against one of the promoted two, we put out a second string team v Roscommon in the last round and got hammered.

We probably would have been stronger with our U21s available for the whole League but I don't think it would have changed the results that much at the end of the day. I still think we've done the right thing again this year by leaving them off during the U21 Championship. Let them filter through naturally and allow them to give their sole focus to the U21 Championship.

8 from this years U21s were on the starting team yesterday. 6 of the others were U21 last year. Only 1 of the starting team didn't represent Cavan at U21 level.

Good grade to develop those U21s then and why others don't do likewise is strange.

3 points from two away games in our first visit to Div 2 in a long number of years. We'll take it. Dominance around the middle third, a more positive approach than last year, cohesive and determined.. Laois didn't put up a great battle but you can only beat what's in front of you. Safety well within our grasp now. As they say around these parts, Terry's no Daw...
