Wtf is going on with Derry? Just read their match report and Down were 1-10 to no score up at one point in the first half. That is shocking against a team with Down's recent record.

I can't make head nor tail of this crazy division.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Not seen any of the league games so relying on reports etc, I'd be prepared to give McHugh plenty more time given its his first year on the panel and the disadvantages that brings.

We're incredibly frustrating, looked like we were going to win that game comfortably with ten mins to go. Galway had kicked 10 out of the previous 12 points and were in total control.  Comer is a huge loss, he's our best player and the best forward in the province.

I think 9 points will be enough for promotion so 2 wins from 3 should do it as I just don't see any of Cork, Meath, Down, Derry, & Clare winning all their remaining games. I think if we were level on 9 points with Clare we'd go up based on the head to head.

Do you base that on match reports also?

Division two looks like a bunch of average inconsistent teams and whichever are the two lucky teams to gain promotion will unlikely stay up next year.

Yesterday was like like one of those slot machines where you put in money and try to get it to push other money down levels and nothing really happens. The teams are very bunched.  Down are looking okay. Meath were lucky.  Fermanagh need a win. Cork must be gone at this stage. Kildare v Galway will be interesting.

If and a big if Kildare beat Clare and Down we will be already promoted before this game. However I would like to be going to Galway with something to play for as it's just the test this young team need and our performance could good give a indication of our direction.

Any notion of how Kildare v Down will go? This is a mad division in fairness and all the teams seem capable of brain farts on their day.
What is the feeling within Down?

I think it's safe to say we are every true GAA fan's 'second' team.

And we are back from the Twilight Zone.

Kildare just need one point to be promoted. If only we had some natural footballers....
