Talk seems to be turning to this game so I thought I'd create a new thread.

We destroyed them last year but they seem a completely different proposition now they've got rid of Bealin. Beat Laois and nearly beat Galway. Therefore, the way both teams are going, I'd rate our chances as about 50-50.

We desperately need a win, any type of win but I'd fear if we set up as defensively as we've been doing we're inviting trouble. This is a game where we should go for it and play the attacking football we did last year.

Hard to predict a starting line-up with the doubt over who'll be fit but in general what do people think the team should be?

The u21s will be out a few days after so probably unlikely that Kelly or Hyland will start.

This is a very winable game for Kildare.
WH rely on Heslin frees for a lot of their scores so cutting out unnecessary fouls at the back is a must and if they can do that I would expect a 4 or 5 point win.

My wishlist for next Sunday

1) A forward line (more than one player)
2) A strong defensive structure inside our own 45, not 14 players in our own half.
3) Better tackling,no easy frees given away in scoreable positions
4) that we create more goal scoring chances
5) leadership, stubborn determination, belief and confidence
6) To finish the game out strongly
7) A Win

no, I don't think world peace and end to famine are in the job description, whereas 1 to 7 are fairly straight forward requirements for a football team but were lacking the last day out

Good to see us getting closer to full strength. Paul Cribbin wasn't mentioned - does anyone know if he's available for selection?

Kildare have received a boost ahead of their NFL Division Two clash against Westmeath on Sunday.

The Lilywhites will have Daniel Flynn, Emmet Bolton, Alan Smith and Mikey Conway available for selection after the quartet returned to full training having recovered from their respective injuries.

However, they are still without Tommy Moolick, Daryl Flynn, Jimmy Gately, Danny Egan and Cathal McNally for the visit of the Lake County.

Kildare need a win to have any hope of avoiding a relegation dogfight, but they have come out on top in recent meetings with the Midlanders.

Good stuff we need a full strength panel i personally cant understand the amount of injuries we pick up compared to other counties always a minimum of 5 out.

Can't understand how Mikey Conway is still part of the panel - good guy and decent player however surely there must be a better way of getting him right the man hasn't put a few games together for a long time now, maybe let him play a season with Nurney or something but whatever is currently happenning is not working - don't have the answer but frustrating scenario for all especially when you see guys being cut from panels and him left there which must be frustrating for the lads being cut from the panel looking in from the outside, for clarity i am not doubting his ability i am doubting his ability to prove his worth to the team.

In light of all this what starting line-up would people go with?
The defence almost picks itself. Midfield and half-forward line the obvious problem areas.
I'd go with something like:
1 Donnellan
2 Fitzpatrick
3 Kelly
4 O'Grady
5 Doyle
6 Conway
7 Bolton (if he's not ready, then Lyons here)
8 Lynch (if fit; if not, then O'Neill, with Leper into h-f line)
9 Moolick (if ready)
10 Flats
11 O'Neill (shame about Niall Kelly)
12 Paul Cribbin (if ready, maybe Keith or Leper otherwise)
13 Mulhall
14 Smith (Fogarty if Alan's not ready but I think we really need Smith's bite)
15 Dowling

I know these have improved since last year and we have looked to have regressed but if we draw or lose to these serious questions have to be asked. I think we will win the break would have do us well and we have players like Bolton, Smith and Cribbo coming back. Kildare by 5.

Is Peter Kelly injured again or just not selected? I would have expected Fergal Conway to have taken the centre back spot by now. O'Brien has done okay but I think Conway is the better long term bet. Good to see Paul Cribbin back.

There are only 2 changes since the Meath game (Lynch for Chalky and P Crbbin for Kelly) I think some players are lucky to have been selected again and need to deliver in this match.

Decent team would have liked to see Fergal Conway in there too, absolutely delighted to see Paul Cribbin back he's fast tenacious and has skill which is badly needed. Hope to god P Kelly isn't injured hope it's just precautionary measures.

I worry about Keith and O'Brien defensively and taking Peter Kelly out seems strange if he's not injured.
No Niall Kelly either, and Smith, Bolton and Moolick not ready yet obviously. That leaves us a long way short of full strength. I think we might scrape a win but 3-1 for Westmeath looks good value.
