At times it felt like we're hanging on to Meath's coattails but the concentration from the defenders is like night and day from last week even if a couple are struggling. Midfield being able to keep going against a fairly mobile Meath pair will decide this.

Hard Luck to Kildare to went down to a good Meath side
Meath 2-11 (h/t 0-Cool
Kildare 1-13 (h/t 0-9)

The 2 goals in quick succession without reply were the killer as Kildare went from 1 point up to 5 points down,but in fairness Kildare battle to final whistle. Some players looked slightly off the pace(warm day and aggressive Meath team), but lets not forget we only got the better of them in extra time as minors.
This game will stand to team in long term, all is not lost provided we beat Wicklow and turn up in quarter final V Offaly or Carlow (who beat Louth today). 2 more games should give management time to figure out form players and develop game plan .

Hard luck lads. Good to see them battle to the end but we've got to stop conceding goals. That's 6 in 2 games. Hopefully we can learn the lessons as there is good potential in this group.

Decision making and short hand passing let Kildare down again today. When will Kildare players learn to move with ball and not to hand pass to a player standing still? Backs losing ball in tackle caused goals in last 2 games. If you have McLoughlin and Hyland inside they are capable of winning 50:50 balls and early kicked delivery from out the field should be encouraged .Getting shooters on ball proved difficult in last 5 minutes and this needs to be worked on in training. Lots of learning from today,let's get behind this group and look forward to next game in Newbridge v Wicklow. I think Offaly(if they beat Louth), Carlow ,Westmeath(if they beat Longford) and Kildare(if they beat Wicklow) will be in quarter final ,not sure of draw.

Terrible first goal to give away off the turnover and some of the players struggled a little with the pace of the game but there was real improvement from the first game. I honestly feel there's more improvement in them than Meath. Winning 4 games in a month to win Leinster won't be straightforward but it can be done. Masterson is ploughing a lone furrow at midfield at times and a couple of the defensive positions need to be nailed down (Danny O Sullivan?), as well as O'Neill making a better effort at shotstopping, but if Hyland and McLoughlin stay fit there's a Leinster in them. Terrific game to watch even though we lost. In fairness Wicklow had a good minor team 2 years ago but had no self belief. Even though they are effectively out because their points difference is so bad, they'll give this match a real lash.

Exhibition of forward play from Jimmy Hyland today. Opposition wernt up to much but looks a nicely balanced team. We struggled in midfield though with very little pace in there ok today but I think it will cost this team at sometime. Was impressed by chap from ardclough maybe he could move in there (when was last footballer from the cloughs)

In fairness the 2nd quarter was good stuff regardless of the opposition. Can't make up my mind whether Masterson is getting slower or is just exhausted from being on the go non stop for 2 years. Unless Louth win tomorrow it looks like Carlow next week. At the risk of tempting fate after what happened our seniors, might be a last chance to try something at midfield before Dublin in the semi.

I’ve worried about Masterson and Marnell as a pair since minor days. I’d have someone like Shane O’Sullivan or Bambrick in there alongside Masterson.

Jimmy was excellent, some of the other forwards not so much.
2nd half subs made an impact, and management have a nice seletion headache.

Congrats to the lads. Some of the lax defending for the goal chances would put the heart across you but you can see them looking a lot more coherent. The fact that they have Dublin in Parnell Park isn't the worst thing in the world given the tightness of the pitch though the Dublin forwards are big enough. But they could really do with Brian McLoughlin being fit. Having this game rather than a week off was no harm. Darragh Ryan's improvement symptomatic of team's improvement overall.
