I would expect a lot of the same faces in the first panel. It’ll be next year before JOC can say he has the panel he wants gathered.
What can be hoped for, or expected, is a change in attitude immediately.
JOC built his Kerry teams on hard working fighters. Neither words have followed a Kildare team since Geezer’s time.
JOC won’t accept defenders who shadow their men, cavernous holes through the centre of the pitch and forwards passing up the opportunity to kick a score because they’re afraid to miss.
And if the players aren’t willing to conform to the new norm, it’ll be a shift “bye bye”.
