A very uninspiring GAA president from what ive heard from him thus far.

This organisation would drive you mad at times

Agree the county board need to look at themselves and realize they are out of their depth. The contributors on this forum could do a much better job and have more passion. Money is of course an issue but the difference from all sources in Kildare and Dublin per GAA member is not that different. What is different in Dublin is that they use their money very wisely and do put it in to grass roots development. Lads we all have the same agenda but we may as well be whistling in the wind if we believe the people why run our Organisation in the county on our behalf are up to the job. It is time for a complete change in the county board. Chairman vice chair and treasurer must go immediately.Make Kildare Great Again ,,,,!,,,,,,,,

You're double posting shay..

In all of this Dublin dominance and Corrigan Park.. and who we might play next debate.. I'm afraid of my life this won't be as simple a match as we think it will be.. are we happy out that because we performed so well to d dubs that we'll just have to tog out ?.. we're not that good folks.. there's no chat about the team or fck all.. they didn't all play well.

Re the team, I feel like there isn't to much to say, as D Flynn isn't onboard, P Cribbin is crocked & O'Neill, for reasons I don't fully understand, doesn't want last year's U20s involved, bar Demspey & J Hyland. Lads like Nash & Robinson not being in squad has given us one of the more talented junior teams you're likely to see, but I'd have them on senior panel in heartbeat.

Yeah, the U20s aren't going to make the difference v Dublin but they could be getting valuable championship experience in these types of games. I repeat: O'Neill has managed it all wrong.

So not much to discuss really, although Brophy seems to have fallen out of favour.

Agree if the team aren't fully tuned in – a big problem for them it has to be acknowledged – this could be a quagmire. They were very focused in Longford replay so need more of that.

We should and will win this well. It will make us out to be world beaters will give con a reprieve. It will fill us full of the confidence of 1928 again. It will make us believe in our power and prowess as one of the leading football counties. Until ..............we get a hiding in the next round by a first or second division team playing well in patches and commenting on the what if’s and excuses. Watch this space. A CHANGE IS NEEDED. LETS MAKE KILDARE GREAT AGAIN.

Anyway back to the match, is this to quote another manager a " potential banana skin"? It will be a strange atmosphere in a small ground and a small crowd.
Good not to concede goals the last day but can't continue to waste goal chances ourselves. We sort that out and I think it will be straight forward enough but otherwise it could be a repeat of the first 2 championship games .

After watching the Rossies a number of things have come to mind comparing them to Kildare.
Both have had winning underage teams.
Roscommon has the population of north kildare.
They appear to have high levels of sponsorship in Ballymore.
They’ve shifted heavy defeats in recent years.
Every year they have a realistic chance of winning their provincial championships.
A change in manager, with a proper defensive system completely turned around their squad, showing the importance of having the right man in charge.

We’ve a population that dwarfs theirs. We don’t make the most of it.
We’ve shipped heavy defeats in recent years, but haven’t turned it around.
We’ve had excellent underage teams, but struggle to bring them through.
We’ve a sponsorship (which I’m grateful for) but if the figures are to be believed, don’t contribute funds which are required at this stage to keep a county set up going.
We’ve no defensive system to speak of.
We’ve no chance to win a provincial title.

And most of our issues come from that.
Can’t get bigger sponsors because we don’t win.
Young lads aren’t committing to the senior set because they either aren’t be given a shot, or they’ve no interest in getting hammering in Croke Park.
Walk around north kildare and you’ll see more jerseys from different counties than Kildare ones.... kids from families who’ve moved to kildare have no incentive to support the Lillie’s....

Roscommon are a small county with a realistic chance of winning something. We’re a medium to bigger sized county population wise and have no chance of winning something.

Then there’s the management 🙄

Put Dublin in any other province and you would see the likes of Roscommon etc give up the fight If Kildare were in Connacht I would fancy them to win a few titles.

Exactly.
But we also need to get our house in order too. Look what they have done without the numbers etc that we have. Look how they’ve managed to develop players and bring them through to the seniors.
The Dubs are a beast and the provincials are dead. But god, I’d love to get a team together with the spirit the Rossies have shown the past few years. And a hardy fu*k of a manager.
Let’s not forget that whilst we’ve been going up and down between division 3 and 1, they’ve bounced between 1 and 2 and are close to cracking into staying in division long with stability.
We can’t do that. And that’s not Dublin’s fault. That’s on us.

Not sure we would have won a Connacht title in the last 10 years since Dublin started to dominate. We lose too often against poor opposition, Wicklow, Louth, Westmeath and Carlow to think we could take down any 2 of the big 3 in Connacht in one year. Roscommon have a spirit and doggedness that we can only dream off.
Our record against Galway and Roscommon at all grades is not great, remember Tullamore 2013?
We should concentrate more on ourselves and less on Dublin and try get ourselves up to a consistently higher level

Keep saying it on here, but shows the advantage of playing the spring in Div 1, even though Rossies were relegated. They also made a better fist of it than us (not hard), and even gave Dubs plenty of it - although that was a home game, and we never get home games against Dublin.

They definitely have the quality - if they have that bit of belief in themselves they can compete in Super 8s. Am I right in thinking Cunningham was run out of Galway hurling job? He has a superb CV at this stage you have to say.

We really are going to have our work cut out in Div 2 next season with them & Cavan in with us. Only strong people performance we’ve given all year was Longford replay, could do with another one at weekend.

They lost by 14 to Dublin last championship, same as us this championship and will again in few weeks. But that's not to take away from yesterday, some second half and great to see a throwback to what provinces used to mean. Cavan will provide another reminder. Wouldn't this be one interesting summer if it was solely the amateur teams playing.

Btw has there ever been a bigger propaganda victory than Ulster championship... All the shite talked about it, but if Donegal win next weekend that means only four teams have won it in 20 years.

Even five in 20 - just about - is not particularly hectic for the so-called GOAT provincial championship.

Hilariously, if Cavan win that will bring them level with Leinster for spread of titles over last two decades.

As i said when you have a team as dominant as Dublin in your province players will question why am i doing this what am i going to get out of it etc and you can see it in Munster now Cork are gone Tipp gone Clare gone because Kerry are way ahead and the demands on players is gone through the roof at the end of the day its not worth it.

Exactly. Stick the Golden Boys in any other province and just watch it die a death like Leinster. The likes of Roscommon and Cavan have a realistic chance of beating Galway/Mayo and Tyrone/Donegal whereas we haven't a hope in hell of beating Dublin and neither do Roscommon or Cavan for that matter. Lads in those counties wouldn't be long in heading to the US then.

A sad state of affairs.
