Pretty much what I expected, Moorefield with aggressive tackling and 2 goals settled the game early on, just like last year. Athy's full back line and goalkeeper were truly awful.
Moorefield are miles ahead of every team in Kildare and have a good chance of retaining their title. I don't like their cynical side but they get away with it often. Tyrell was very good today, hit some lovely points.
2nd half of minor was great entertainment with 5 goals scored.

Wasn't the worst county final in recent year's.

Minor matches on Saturday and Sunday were very good.

Towers 1 14 Balyna 0 10. Those 2 Balyna red cards turned the game on its head. You really have to keep your gob shut and get on with it in a championship final. And all those missed frees. Towers more composed on the dead balls.

Naas 3 14 Clane 3 10. If only Clane had started putting the ball in sooner in the match.....regrets. A great game though.


Thought Athy were very poor yesterday. Lumping the ball in. Defended very softly. No real intensity or game plan. That's just a neutral view.

It was over after 15 minutes.

Certainly wasn't the worst. These are the easily 2 best teams in the county. The game was quite tactical . Hard to look good when you get no space.

Agree it wasn't the worst I've seen, some of the Newbridge derby matches were dire but this one was never in doubt. Pity McCarron wasn't fit, he would have made a difference.

Moorefield always ahead and had that bit extra, Athy will feel sorry for themselves and will have loads of excuses...............

Lads I don't think it was that bad at all and Moorefield played some nice stuff at times, and then slowed it all down when things were getting too hectic.
Adam Tyrrell was just class all day, he showed so well and his little passes inside were great.

For all the coaching that goes on in modern football it's a direct ball (not an effing skyscraper) that can cause trouble to a full-back line.
When Kelly drifted out and delivered some it caused mayhem. But Athy killed themselves so often and even when Moorefield were rocking a bit there were times when they had noone inside the opposition 21 or Feely in there totally alone.

Tyrell consistemtly does it in county finals. Should be on Kildare panel, maybe its his oversea duties which prevent it but hopefully he'll get called in next year.

Who are these guys calling Moorefield cynical?, I thought they defended as a well disiplined outfit, as cynical tackles goes Athy would have won the match hands down, yeah we all know you hate the Newbridge teams, but stop telling porky pies because a Newbridge team won again, get over your jealousy and go out and beat them, if you can?

Kilkenny suffered the same acussations when they were winning left right and center, accused of stuff they were never doing, in fact their rivals were much more cynical in their quest to rid Kilkenny of their dominance often helped by prejudicial refs, success breeds jealousy understandable in the narrow minded world of todays GAA!.

Adam can be shit hot, when he's on his game he's as good a forward found anywhere in the county, but I've have my doubts whether Adam could cope with all the restrictions that comes with county football, he's more than good enough thats certain, kicked some great scores yesterday and has a physical presence about him, not knocked off the ball easy.

Relax kildarecat. I don't see any anti Newbridge bias here. Moorefield were by far the better team. The fact that they defended well has nothing to do with them being cynical. They were cynical in other ways as we all saw yesterday. And see regularly from them. So stop playing the victim. They are a great club team.

On Tyrell. He is good enough for the county but as far as I know he is not interested in the restrictive life of a county player. Every man to himself. He looks sharp and fresh.

Cynical I'm straining to see anything Moorefield done yesterday that was any way close to cynical?

To me they defended as they usually do, if they were losing Durney and Murray can get forward big time

My point been, if Moorefield really needed they had that option but that option never materialised, final scoreline flattered Athy, Moorefield could have had 5 goals.

I suppose you conveniently failed to notice the Moorefield player with his jersey ripped off his shoulder.

Basically there was nothing much more going on Sunday that you wouldn't get in any hard fought championship games anywhere in the country, thats why I find the accusations about Moorefield been cynical stems from simple jealousy, its human nature to try and knock the most successful teams, ABU or ABMS.

Sorry you said you struggled to see anything that was close to cynical. Anyone know what the penalty for pulling down shorts is by the way? Im sure the Moores checked it out beforehand . Most cynical team in Kildare for past 15 years. Everyone knows it. Most successful too of course.

Moorefield naming Philips to start was a trick that worked perfect for them and Athy fell for it. Athy already had M Hyland and Gibbons named in their forward line and by starting Foley for B Kelly left them with only 3 forwards starting. Athy were never going to win any game with 3 forwards let alone a county final against Moorefield. Athy were worried by Moorefield, and rightly so, but to not play to their own strengths, fast attacking football, left them imo no chance of winning the game.

Moorefield are very clever on and off the pitch at county level and I would like to see them push on and do that in Leinster also.

We can't have it both ways here. If you take out the antics of Cian O'Connor then I say F all else that any other team is not at around the county.
We give out shite about Kildare being too nice while our county champions are being criticised for not being nice enough...
You cannot argue Moorefield played the football and, as they always do, make teams play their game.

"Most cynical team in Kildare for past 15 years"

Probably the most ridiculous statement ever said on this website, un-effing believable, so you can only win titles by been cynical, good football doesn't have anything to do with it, so all of Moorefields 9 titles since the turn of the century were only won because they were cynical yeah?

Kildarecat, I may be wrong but I don't think anyone is getting at you or Moorefield. Moorefield play a certain way. t is what suits them and it gives them the best chance of winning. Most of us would love to see our own clubs and even the county do the same.

Thats a little ambiguous shoutitout, they play gaelic football defend and attack, we don't always win but as team spirit goes Moorefield have it in spades, you don't win two Leinster titles if you havent got team spirit, to be called cynical annoys the sh!t out of me.

Remember Paddy Murray in full flow, the guy that idiot Nolan substituted against Roscommon, after tearing the Ross a new asshole in the first half, probably the most mysterious substitution of all time?

Was the slowing down of the county final in 2017 by Moorefield not cycnical ?? when they stopped the quick kickouts by Celbridge by kicking a ball out to the middle of field from the dugout on 4 or 5 occasions ??

Moorefield tried to target David Hyland all game on Sunday, by stopping his runs for kickouts, pulling and dragging him when making runs during the game??

Moorefield are the cleverest/best coached team in Kildare by a distance. Is there an element of cynicism in their play? Of course there is any team that is as consistent/successful as they have been will have that. Cynical has become a dirty word in GAA but to me all it means is being well coached and playing to the edge of the rules. If cynicism becomes ill discipline then that particular team will never get close to winning anything.

Moorefield have a management team of 3 very recent players, I think they all played a part in the 2014 county final, who appreciate what it takes to win a county title in this era.  

However, as we Irish are well known for, anybody being successful at what they do will always have begrudgers. Shocked Shocked Shocked

Tommy yes for sure can talk about the team getting the trophy being cynical, but my opinion is shouldn't take any credit from them for doing this and doing whatever it takes to win championships.... I wish my club and even the county team had a lot more about them.... think most people on here do too..........
