I really cant comment yet coz I havent seen them play. Will get my first chance tonight when they take on Armagh.

I hate making any predictions tho coz last season I was so optimistic and was badly let down.

Monaghan United FC travelled to Armagh City last nite and played a very entertaining match to come away with a 1-1 draw. In the first half, Monaghan had the measure of Armagh and played some very good passing football. Monaghan created a few good chances and were rewarded on the 18th minute when Paul Smyth slotted home from 6 yards much to the joy of the large following support. The game settled into a fairly even affair but with Mons making more chances. David Lee made a few attempts but was unlucky not to score. His biggest disappointment was when he hit the ball over the bar from 6 yards. Robbie Smith also made a nusicance of himself by making darting runs into the Armagh defence and giving the goalie alot of work. Armagh had few chances due to the solid back four of Paul Whelan, Darren Sargent, David Cronin and Eddie Keys.

In the second half, Mick made 8 substitutions including bringing on goalie Tadhg Murphy to replace Robbie Horgan. Eoghan O'Shea and Shane Harte got a run out in the second half. Tadhg didnt get much chance to settle in goals before Armagh capitalised on the unsettled defence and slipped a header past Murphy. The game lost most of its momentum but Monaghan still managed to put in a good display.

The 1-1 result was a fair enough reflection of a pretty even game, but Mons definately showed potential.
