Division 3 is the new Division 2.

Division 3 is the new unofficial Midlands championship. Kildare, Westmeath, Longford, Offaly. Sure Laois might be down to us next year as well.

I miss division 3.
It's like junior C football insofar as the players and fans know it's just a bit of fun really.
The full forward and fullback can slag each other about how much weight they put on over the Christmas.
The subs can cheer ironically when the notoriously inaccurate wing forward balloons the ball wide.
Division 2 is a bit too serious.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

I miss Junior B, hopefully Div 3 lives up to the hype.

Laois seem to be eveyone's favourites to go down but they have been in the top two divisions for a long long time now and play a brand of football that see's them squeez out results in the most unlikely of games.

We have Galway,Tyrone,Derry and Meath at home so could get 2-4 points there.

Cavan ,Armagh and Fermanagh away wouldn't hold that much fear either the fixtures have been kind to Laois and Fermanagh to be fair which gives both counties a fighting chance.

Galway and Meath are hard to predict but come in to the league next week in great form winning silverware which will boost them in what are important first games for both counties.

Derry are always decent in the league and usually are in division one which they have done well in most years apart from last year.I think they will push hard for top spot.

Tyrone are the obvious standout team and i'd be suprised if they didn't win it or at least finish 2nd.

Armagh might be in trouble they have a few injuries and they will miss the cross players for 3 games there first two matches must yield a return of points .

Very very interesting division with five ulster teams the unpredictable but old forces of Gaelic football in Galway and Meath and then the very consistent(as regards staying in the top two divisions)Laois...

Bring it on I for one can't wait!

Fermanagh have Pete McGrath in charge so could be worth a few points.

Good point Seafoid he is a wiley auld fox who certainly knows how to get the best out of players and make teams hard to beat while still playing a decent brand of football.

A good chef with bad ingredients still gets you a bad cake...having said that the ingredients are okay, certainly not the worst.

As you all know a lot will be riding on the first 2 league matches and if Armagh loose them they'll be relegated, same if Laois and Meath loose their first 2 matches they'll be for the chop...

We usually have a shakey start to the league. It's a good time for Armagh to get us but you never know what way we'll go at the minute.

A good few missing from the team that lost to Armagh two years ago, the two Brays, Wallace, K Reilly, Menton, Shane O'Rourke, Harrington, Damien Carroll and Seamus Kenny.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

I think Armagh will beat Meath by 2-3pts...but then again what do i know.
