NEW Gaelic Life columnist Finnian Moriarty believes that Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney is finally edging closer to a style of play that suits the Orchard county.
Writing ahead of last night’s Dr McKenna Cup win over Down, Moriarty said that for the first time in a few years, there is a real belief that the Armagh side could be back on the right path.
“The emphasis in their first three games of 2017 have seen a simple game plan, press the opposition high, try and win the ball back early and attack en-mass,” he said.
“In trying to be everything to everyone, Armagh laboured to play a blanket defence along with an expansive kicking game, but if January foreshadows the season ahead Kieran McGeeney’s men are trying to embark upon a necessary response to the failures of the past.”
