I was on here baffled by why people were so upset about and O'Byrne Cup game and I think some people have gone too far the other way now.
Great win but it's the first week of February, would rather be going well after the three-week break than before it, because that's when the season takes shape.
Look when you field 12 players under the age of 25, you're going to get wild swings in performance levels, that's just the way young players are when they are finding their feet at the top level. I hope everyone remembers that when another bad performance comes and they think twice about dashing on here in a temper and talking about how it was the worst Kildare performance they've ever seen (these people never seem to realise that they post that three times a year).

Ohtoohtobe, I could not agree more with your post. How good/bad we are is probably some where in the middle between the Dublin and Meath game. I said before the game that when you have Flynn running out from FF it will leave space, didn't for on minute think we would get a goal from it inside 14 seconds thou.
This team is young and has got potential. Eoin Doyle is really looking like a captain/leader and that is something we have not had since Johnny retired. N Kelly pulled the strings in his first league game against Donegal some years ago playing at 11. Since then it is probably fair to say he has not being as good/consistence. Him along with a number of others now need to push on and show their full worth.

When Geezer took over I hoped that he would make us a team that consistently beat the teams that are below us, be equal to those around us and give the big boys a run for their money. In the main he done that. I now hope the same under O' Neill.

I see Cormac "Bernards bud" Reilly is the ref for Sunday. Not a good start.
Probably the worst ref in the country added to the need to be center of attention might get a few lads blood pumping.

Well done to the lads and it seemed there was much more urgency in that performance. Let Niall Kelly float and pull the strings with the younger lads inside showing well.
The FF line are v much newbies so those kind of wins are a huge boost. The panel don't give a flyin' fuck what is said on these forums but there is a gloomy mood in recent years around the county which must feed info them. They need wins on the board to believe in themselves.
If confidence flows then this young team can produce and I'd really hope for a gritty, messy win at some stage this campaign to further show another side of what they can do.
Like this forum when things are going well they are great but when things go bad they are horrid. A little bit of middle ground and consistency to stay in Div 2 would be a solid start to the year.

Right so that’s Meath out of the way… Looking ahead to the Cork game I feel this will be a good test of where we are at. They are in a bit of a slump themselves and from looking at the team they had out against Galway last weekend there is nothing for us to fear. Colm O Neill came off the bench to kick five points I believe and he will likely start. Im not too sure who is the best man to pick him up but I’d probably start O Grady on him and see how it pans out. One area in which I believe they are strong is at midfield. Ruari Deane and Aidan Walsh are as a good a midfield combination as any in the country. Some on here may remember Deane from the 2013 All Ireland junior final where Cork beat us down in Limerick. He was immense that day. I cant see us winning as much clean ball around the middle as last weekend so breaking ball will be crucial. If we are beaten this weekend I wouldn’t be too upset so long as we put in a good performance similar to that last weekend. If we can do that every week for the rest of the league we should comfortably survive. Something which I don’t think has gotten enough attention on this forum is the fact that we are yet to concede a goal in our 6 games this season. That’s a pretty remarkable feat considering how porous we have been over the last number of years. Anyway as for a prediction, I think it will be a tight game. Cork have more experience and perhaps greater firepower coming off the bench however I will go for Kildare win by 2.

We may not have conceded a goal yet but our goalie has made a lot of very good saves. Watched the highlights of the Meath game and it was noticable how easy O'Sullivan ran through on goal. We are still very porous and that will undo a lot of the good work which is being done out the field. If we could improve that aspect of our play it would make us a difficult team to beat as we look to have a good range of scorers to run up a winning total. Next day will reveal a lot.

Said it before the game that a Meath insider tole me they had their worst panel in years. I expected Kildare to win but I must say was shocked by the margin. Great to get a win away from home in the first game. Always hard to win in Navan no matter what so well done to the team and management.

Cork had a good result in Galway imo. And will be a stiff test in Newbridge. We will struggle to get anything from this game but the win will give us confidence. Cork will be out to get us big time after the result in semple. They will not forget that.

I hop we put in a good performance but fancy Cork to win it I'm afraid.

You did indeed botch. And looking back at the ob cup results, louth beat meath in navan by 7 and they then lost out to the Dublin ob cup team by 6 in drogheda.. although I am aware one cannot compare ob cup matches to league matches.. Cork will be a bigger test and I hope recent poor performances in conleths improve.

we need a good full back imo. Is the rathangan lad good? Does he have presence. ie a bit of bulk to go with general good marking ?

He's more a corner back.. and probably won't even play fb for rathangan.

Any update on Paul mescal.

Fair enough. Just hoping we can develop an good physical full back.
Eoin Doyle looks like he is improving at centre back.
Midfield hopefully will improve.
Kelly is playing well at centre forward and time will tell about Flynn at full forward.

I would just like us to have a good solid spine Smile

Mescal won't be involved with any county team this year. I believe his studies are his priority at the moment and won't allow him the time to commit.

DCU beaten after extra time by St Mary’s yesterday, Feely was down as starting centreback but no idea if he actually played there. Least that’s another one freed up for the rest of the league.

I know people will complain about the colleges playing in the preseason tournaments and the timing of the Sigerson isn’t always ideal but at least teams like NUI Maynooth and Carlow IT are allowing a few players get a bit more game time behind them. With the likes of Hyland, Cribbin and Flynn playing for Maynooth it allowed O’Neill give a few lads a run they mightn’t have got in the O’Byrne Cup. With Maynooth going out early it frees them up for the league anyways.

Big difference between this year and previous years could end up being the likes of Paul Cribbin, Niall Kelly and Dan Flynn coming into the league with an injury free preseason behind them and and a bit more game time then they might normally have had.

If we go into the Cork game with the same approach as we did in Navan I’ll be happy, you’d imagine they’ll be setup better than Meath were but if we have the same gameplan and try the same things again then it’ll be another step forward.
