And we are back from the Twilight Zone.

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

Are we going to enter the transfer market again?
There's Seán Brady going in, what dya think Seán?

Honestly believe that the league now shows exactly how a tiered championship should work.  Games are very hard to predict
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

I really hope Galway can do it because it looks like Louth are going to be promoted from D3

Its a shame Meath scored that late point, without it Galway would have needed to only 1 of their 2 remaining games.

I assure you Seaf, a repeat performance from yesterday from the Galway defence in the remaining 2 games will ensure we will stay in Division 2 next season. Absolutely no exaggeration to say the FB line yesterday was the worst I've ever seen play for the county; simply eviscerated. In turn got no protection from the HB line, all of whom were too busy dashing upfield trying to link up with the attack and get their names on the scoresheet rather than do their main function of defending. KW is blessed that the Derry defence was as porous as our own and that we have some attackers of a decent standard, (led by the increasingly-impressive Michael Daly, Galway's most accomplished player on view.) How management didn't see fit to make one change in defence until about 10 minutes from time is beyond belief.

We don't really want to be in Division 1 next year so we'll probably let Galway go up instead.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

The wise money would be on Armagh and Tipperary instead of Louth.

According to the odds division 2 in 2018 will be.

Armagh
Tipperary
Roscommon
Cavan
Meath
Fermanagh
Clare
Cork

We are doing our best to stay down also as that is the only reason I can give for our defensive "performance" yesterday - it was atrocious and comical at times, usually all in the same passage of play.  One would normally expect a few changes for the Down game, but as we didn't see fit to make any defensive changes until the last 10 mins yesterday, its hard to know what to expect!!!

Agreed, backs were atrocious yesterday, for all his faults Kyne was missed yesterday, Lavelle had to make a number of saves yesterday that should never have gotten that far, no tackle came from anywhere. Our half back line are too similar, th first instinct for all 3 of them when they get the ball is run as far as I can with it, Gary O'Donnell was up in the corner forward position about 4 times yesterday, same with Bradshaw and Heaney, there's 6 forwards there, all able to score, these lads should be told do their primary job and stay back and defend. Even though I don't know are they able for that! They should win against Down but you never know with these bucks, u-21s are playing Saturday so you'd think Michael Daly probably won't be playing but I wouldn't be surprised if he was asked to play 2 days in a row. He's turning into a real focal point in the attack, himself and Damien Comer (when he's back from injury) in the forwards could do serious damage if they get fast, quick ball. Shane Walsh was a joy to watch yesterday when he got going, the way he can pass a ball and read the play is fantastic. A bit of consistency would be nice though, Eamon Brannigan had a great second half. Barry McHugh will be lucky to hold onto his place I think, he offers very little from open play and didn't have a good day on the frees yesterday, missed the penalty also.

We don't have the robo-legs for division 1 anyway.

I was in Páirc Uí Rinn yesterday. If I ever figure out what I saw I'll tell you about it.

Issues in the full back line are not exactly a new phenomenon for us.
It's been our weakest line for a long time.
They did quite well in the Connacht championship last year to be fair but were taken to the cleaners in Croker.
You just couldnt trust that defence.Okay some weeks - disastrous the next!
