Just curious how did Jason Ryan get on with Kildare or do Kildare supporters rate him?

Absolutely no idea what his role is/was. Saw him in the stands during games taking notes but other than that don't know. Players interviewed said he was good to have on board but never elaborated beyond that. Certainly didn't seem to get us anywhere near unlocking the dubs!

I'm sure if you asked the players or people behind the scenes they will say he brought something to the party but as a supporter who has been at 99% of the games Kildare have played since his arrival I cannot see any influence he has had on our style of play which I was expecting to see. I wouldn't criticise the guy because he wasn't in charge & we did have a lot of younger players getting their first chance with the seniors & have been on a learning curve this year. Having said that, even now I cannot fathom what way we were trying to play the game this year, to be honest it was clueless a lot of the times.

From talking to the county players in my club it seems like he was very positive but didnt really bring a hole lot to things. To be fair one of his family members was unwell throughout the year and if he had ful control he might have done things a different way to Mcgeeney.

Carburycastle you've summed up the year entirely. We should have won the all Ireland u21 with the squad we had but the complete absence of a plan a or b. the seniors were shambolic at times.

I thought he might have influenced the forward play, but it doesn't look like he did. I too seem him in the stands a good bit, but I'm not sure what, if any, influence he had
