Your boy Hughes was referee that day. He obviously had a premonition that Armagh would face Kildare this summer and tried to get as many of our players into disciplinary trouble as possible.

I'm sure identifying disciplinary lapses by Kildare was one of the easier tasks he has undertaken.

To be fair the discipline of the Kildare players this season has been in general excellent. There is very little handbags in our games, no abusing or soving of officials and no brainless sending offs. Keith Cribben did catch a Meath man with an elbow but that is fair enough considering he lives in JTB.
Hopefully McQuillan is refereeing (never thought I'd say that).

Who is he?

Someone who greatly irritates Dubs as he mentions the unfair allocation of grant money regularly in his articles.

He is right up there with Aidan O'Shea as the most hated man on that site, he must be doing something right so for such a low profile journalist.

What was so good about John O'Leary? I remember him being there forever but I don't recall any greatness.

He is the greatest keeper of all time at the moment, nobody can argue with what he has done to increase the standard of the game. Plenty are closing the gap to him though. Not much else to be said on the matter.

If Feely and Doyle were available I'd be a lot more confident, that other players will have to step up.
Realistic selection options:


Byrne/P Kelly---P Kelly/Conway/Byrne-----KC


Conway/Slats-------N Kelly----------------PC


Plenty of options still but plenty to work on, the biggest complaint apart from the defending for the goals yesterday was the poor movement of the ball forward from the half forward line. Conway was moved to LHF for the first time this season and failed to fire at all, Kelly was well man marked, while Slattery put in a phenomenal shift he is still limited when it comes to kick passing the ball in quick. That needs improvement.
I wouldn't be unhappy to see Peter Kelly get a start as he looks in very good shape this season and did nothing wrong when he came on.
Fionn in midfield is a no brainer as he has settled into the team a bit more this season and is finding a bit of consistency for the 1st time in his career.

Armagh set up very much the same way as Kildare did under McGeeney, attacking wing backs, target man full forward, good mixture of running and kick passing. Their tackiling is poor and they kick too many wides. If Kildare play well we should beat them but they are fit, motivated and developing momentum so it should be a good game.

In fairness a good few old Kildare fans returned for the day out while more Dubs turned up in expectation of a semi competitive game which it transpired to be. The Kildare fans won't return for a double header in a 2/3rds empty Croke park.

I think by about 2025 when Dublin have won 19 out of the last 20 Leinsters something will have to be done.

It will still be well shy of what turned up in 09.

Then again Niall Kelly could well end up free while there is nobody in the Dublin full back line capable of stopping Dan Flynn and  maybe Brophy.

Gavin has done well to cause problems for O'Neill with the match ups if the Dublin team lines up as it is. I'm less confident again.

Kilkenny may end up free, Mannion will get a run on Doyle who will be needed to mop up in front of O'Gara. Con O'Callaghan at wing forward will either drag Ollie Lyons out or there will be a mismatch in pace with Johnny Byrne.

No changes officially anyway which is fair enough.

I'd understand either decision when it comes to both McNally and Slattery (possibly even Brophy) not starting. It would be harsh on any of them but do the great managers like Cody ever mind being harsh.
