If we come top two in this division will be huge but stall the digger. Will take five, maybe six wins to do that. O'Byrne Cup showed the usual crisis happy fans, two wins does likewise. We are an okay team barely in top-12. February never proved otherwise. Precedent set, let's see if talent and mentality to drive it on.

Don't think fans (on here or anywhere) are getting carried away at all. Nothing wrong with enjoying two good wins after what's gone before. It's the media that's suddenly latching on to us. Tommy you said after the Meath game that the test would be whether they could follow it up v Cork. They did. Enjoy it. I've been researching the 1970's for the website over the last few days and by jesus is it ingrained in the Kildare psychy to screw up big time when we're bigged up. What a let down that decade was when we had some superb underage players coming through. Consistently failed to show up on the big day although at least they tended to get to Leinster Finals on a regular basis. Weren't even doing that in the '80s (or the current decade for that matter).

How could you get carried away after the last 3 years. I'm just enjoying something going right for a change and not being ridiculed. What's the point of it all if the last couple of weeks weren't enjoyed.
You can bet your life it will turn soon enough so just be thankful for small mercies.

Never understood this thing of not calling league games meaningful, you can bet they'd be meaningful if we had lost the two games. Players don't train for ten months just for 3 or 4 games in the summer. The league is hugely important.

It's also a genuine chance of silverware whereas we won't be lifting any championship trophies for a while.

It's relatively important, not hugely important. Same way a bad few games this time of year isn't a disaster, merely poor; or a good couple of games is encouraging, not massive. I'd ask people to look at last pages of O'Byrne Cup thread for perspective.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I would give up watching the game if I couldn't enjoy back to back league wins and took more pleasure in telling online strangers "I told you so" in summer. I would actually question whether the Leinster Championship is now any more meaningful than a Division 2 promotion battle. The real test of this team may come in Salthill in April.

Well, Kildare's best efforts in the League in the last 10 years have ended with the manager getting sacked. Division 1 semi-final in 2007 - a couple of months later, John Crofton is gone. Division 1 semi-final 2013 - ditto Kieran McGeeney.

So, when all is said and done...

Delighted they're winning games and hope they can get another two, cos you definitely don't want to be in Division 3 when you have such potential. And pleased for them, given they are only a few weeks removed from the latest all-time low.

To be fair Ogie I think the league has taken on more significance since Crofton's era, partly because no one can compete with the bankrolled Dublin machine and the championship really only starts for the likes of Kildare now when we go into the qualifiers. Everyone says "well how come Mayo can compete" and then you read they've spent more than the Dubs preparing their team. Nearly 3 times the spend of Kildare.

Regarding the league, in both years we got promoted in the last 10 years the managers survived - 2012 and 2016 - so I won't worry too much about O'Neill being on a sticky wicket if we go up. We all know why McGeeney was removed and it wasn't down to good league performances.

I absolutely enjoyed them, was glued into KFM to every minute of both and would love to have been there. But enjoyment and real progress are very different. Looks like we are on the right track but as I said, we won't know that for sure until summer no matter how much enjoyment we get between now and then. The same if we were losing - indeed one of few who didn't come off rails here after O'Byrne Cup. Hopefully we'll make it three from three and promotion would be good for long-term development.

Likewise I didn't panic after the O'B Cup - we've won it often enough to know if counts for little.

Derry will be smarting after their pathetic loss to Meath and history shows they are well capable of beating Kildare at home as a rule. Team needs to be "at it" again once more.
