There is a sense from some posters about regrouping in the qualifiers, as if the teams in the qualifiers are there to help us rebuild on our way to the quarters. Teams like Galway, Armagh and Derry would be well capable of beating us, Louth will be difficult too, huge gaps in defence and unproven young lads in the forward line, making the quarters with the footballers we have would be impressive. I know we have a good record in the qualifiers but there's a good few teams more likely to beat us this year than in previous years, we may not have to wait for a really big team to dump us out this year!

Definitely not switec, can't take anything for granted and that should be the challenge put to these young lads. They haven't become bad players overnight and they need to prove that, as much to themselves as anyone else. The goal has to be to get back to Croke Park. It is vital for Kildare that this team continues to rebuild and getting a few wins under the belt and a bit of momentum will be integral to that. The future is what matters and it starts now.

Fantastic lads. Another year through the qualifiers where we will beat below average teams and reach another All Ireland Quarter Final....then we'll play a half decent team and we will get hammered!

At the end of the day, it's all about maintaining our 100% record in the Qualifiers under McGeeney. That's all he's here for, isn't it?

Hard luck on Sunday lads, the wheels fell off the wagon for yis. Don't know what the stats were but yis seemed to have a good amount of possession... could it be a case of paralysis by analysis?

Think it's more than the wrong thread takeyourpoints is on.

Thank God I read takeyourpoints post on the pervious page otherwise I'd have probably have taken the latest contribution about beaten below average teams in the qualifiers this year en-route to another All Ireland quarter final seriously.

I mean these below average teams like Tyrone, Down, Derry, Wexford, Laois, Armagh, Louth and Galway are just chicken feed for Kildare and it does absolutely nothing for the qualifiers having them in there at all isn't that right takeyourpoints.?

Kildare have gone rapidly downhill since paul grimley left..shows how big a role he had and it obviously cant be filled..ask any of the players who played under him..they'll say how big an influence he had

The worrying thing about this match was how we all seemed to know what weaknesses we had, and how Dublin would exploit them well in advance.

We can't take anything away from Dublin and how well they played but it honestly looked like we had learnt nothing from the defeats to Meath and Cork last year.

Players look tired and slow and there didn't seem to be any sort of a plan b for when we went behind.

Was it just me or were our first three subs all in the forwads? Seanie, Smith and Dowling coming on? The game was lost far from the full forward line to be honest so you'd have to wonder why it took so long for somebody like Morgan Flats to make an appearance, the panel is a bit top heavy in relation to attacking players over defenders but we should at least be able to have some sort of backup plan when things are so open inside our own 45.

To be fair to McGeeney though it was a ballsy decision to go man to man. It didn't work but if we went defensive like we did in the league people would be complaining about that too. There has to be some sort of balance in between though, hopefully we can find it.

Did anyone see the shoulder charge on Graham Reilly in the second half of the Leinster Final half today? No free given - I'd say Johnny Doyle had a wry smile on his face as he saw that.

no Doyle did it when Cooper was crouching down to pick up the ball , you cant touch a player when they are crouching down to get the ball the ref will ping you all day long , McCarthys shoulder on Reilly was textbook , awful sour grapes out of you

Perfectly timed shoulder in my opinion.Does todays result put the lillies into third ranking within the Province,Tank god for the minors and U21's.Hopefully Geezer will be gone by the time they come through.

Are those the u21s that Geezer was over you're taking about yea?

Its fairly obvious what your agenda is.

Given what's happened to Meath today (and a few others), I wish to state that I've re-evaluated my analysis of that game last year! Kildare went man-to-man with the Dubs, all set for a shoot out. It was a suicidal plan, but they did better than most would have done

Was in watching the minors today and the senior game.Very disappointed with their performance.Only one or two tried and they collapsed.Also given what Dublin did to Meath and what Meath did to us along with scraping by against Clare ,it is clear hat no real structure exists in the county.What pretends to be organised'development squads' are merely a gathering of a select few with little homework done on players except those who are sent to by their clubs.Not Good enough and the results are what we have had yesterday and today.

if we meet them this year, expect the same scoreline! with that said, dublin are not the benchmark for kildare, there is a huge gap between the counties. Meath are firmly no 2 in leinster as they have beaten us convincingly in the last 2 championship encounters, we could catch up with Meath again as they are not great but Dubs will remain what they always are for kildare, a game we are unlikely to win 9 times out of 10!

You do realise dubya that it was a minor final you were watching not a first round game ?

A few months before that we went defensive against them in the league.

Dropped men back, which pretty much gave them two or three free options for short kickouts, and let them work the ball up to our half before we attempted to close them down or tackle them. It worked to some extent for a short while as it left Dublin shooting from distance into the wind, but after a while they started getting forward with more purpose and our defence parted like the Red Sea.

After that the opposite approach was to go man to man, and that resulted in pretty much the same outcome.

It'll be interesting to see what approach Ryan takes whenever we do meet the Dubs. There might be a middle ground between both styles but it would require a massive effort from the middle eight who'd need to be constantly tracking back, breaking forward and scrapping for ball around the middle.

Kildarekelly yes I do thanks for asking.Thats what was disappointing although I suspect a tinge of sarcasm in you condescending question.I stayed to watch a football exhibition of sorts in the senior final.No harm to show the kids how it should be done.Monaghan nex t so.You never know.........
