Longford away. Tough assignment.

Longford will be reeling from the Croke Park disaster. A chance to catch them there. Rumoured that some of their younger players are travelling this summer.

Lonford are still better than Carlow, despite both suffering heavy losses in the first round. Its a very tough draw especially having to go there

Longford have a championship win under there belts

10 to 15 point loss I'd imagine. Realistically unless we got London or Waterford at home we would be in for a good trimming

Longford sailed through Div.4, and decisively beat Offaly for the No. 1 spot.

Dublin v Longford, it was always going to be Dublin, nothing new there, it was just by how much they would win by, even with some resistance from Longford.

Carlow v Laois, the pressure of competing against Laois after showing some promise, however small in the league was too much for Carlow, so they froze, hence the result.

Can't see anything other than a 0-10 or 0-12 win for Longford.

So much for the Back Door system when you look at the rest, - - -

Cavan v London - - - Big win for Cavan in store.
Loser of Kildare/Laois v Antrim - - - Not looking good at all for Antrim.
Waterford v Offaly - - - - Big win awaits Offaly.

Tyrone v Limerick. - - - Limerick to take a hammering.
Armagh/Donegal loser v Meath/Wicklow loser. - - - - A hammering awaits Wicklow.
Louth v Leitrim. - - - - Of the eight games taking part the Louth/Leitrim match
is the only unpredictable one of the lot, it could even end in a draw.

Like I say, so much for the back door system.

Some food for thought. Took a look at the history of the qualifiers. Longford have never beaten a Leinster team in the qualifiers, Lost to Dublin, Laois, Wexford, Wicklow and Westmeath. Carlow have beaten Wicklow and Offaly and lost to Laois(30 and Meath.
Carlow have also a good championship record against Longford.

Jaysus, Jack L, there's this thing called a life. I suggest you get one and stop trolling the Carlow board incessantly.

I fail to understand why the moderator allowed two new topics carrying the same title to get posted.

Qualifiers x2 and Laois v Carlow x2

Flying in training. Still running after the Dublin match.

Rumour going around up in Longford is that theres a star player returning......Paul Barden apparently was training with the county after the Dublin game.

That rumour is in your head oddball

Haha good man Martin, play dumb just to try to catch the Carlow boys off guard. It's well known he was back training and will be named on the bench for Saturday. With the ever increasing list of absentees in the forward line (McCormack, McGee, Doyle and the 2 McKeon brothers don't be surprised to see Barden start at full forward with Kavanagh moved out to 11.

Team to play Longford:

Robert Molloy, Kieran Nolan, Shane Redmond, Declan Kelly, Graham Power, Derek Hayden, Benny Kavanagh, Eoghan Ruth, Sean Gannon, Michael Meaney, Darragh Foley, David Bambrick, Brian Murhy, Daniel St Ledger, Daryl Roberts.

Looks pretty defensive to me, not much emphasis placed on scoring - I'm guessing Daniel St Ledger is going back as a defender?

Best of luck to the lads today, i'm sure the lads will want to put things right after Laois!

Take the handicap on Longford.

Longford are firm favourites, and playing in their own back yard, never the less i'm sure Carlow will give a good account of them selves as they have nothing to lose, good luck to them.
