Kilmacud’s view is that what happened in relation to substitutions in the closing stages of their two-point All-Ireland final win over Glen was primarily the fault of the match day officials.

Kilmacud are responsible for how they field a team.

If a player takes 10 steps without soloing the ball, its not the referee's fault they took 10 steps.

So the KC manager said before the game or at half time, “right lads, if its tight at the end I’m throwing on 2 extra players but you stay on, just in case”

Seriously?

Do you think the management haven't game planned the last 5 minutes hundreds of times since last year?

Seriously?


To be clear, I don't think he was meant to stay on - the last man subbed in injury time was possibly meant to linger long enough to have the linesman get confused counting and burn time when they all sorted it. But the referee played on and then fog of war kicks in - maybe Mullin then thought they weren't the subbed man and guessed the refereeing team had sorted it.

Had a thought this evening.

Would Crokes have ran the risk of trying to leave 16 on to burn another minute in confusion when the officials sorted it out?

And it backfired. Badly.

If I were on the committee I'd ask the players as a collective to decide what way they want to take it.

If I were a player? Do I honestly think it was the winning and losing of the game? Probably not. Move broke down too early. Do I think Mannion and Walsh could be kept as quiet 2nd time around? Probably not. Did my team underperform badly on the day and have a much better chance of winning next time? No, not really.


I don't *think* I would ask for a replay. But then I'm not in their mental space right now.

Edit: ahh. My memory is crap. Move didn't break down that early. Would the marking of Conor glass have changed with a man less in small square?

Feck. Harder decision now. Ahhh. Probably still no for a replay, but very much depends what way the wind is blowing!

What sort of catchment area is Crokes? Know, Slaughtneil and Glen are on top of each other.

All the way to Galway, it’s huge
;D ;D ;D

Huge - they'd have well over 100 boys in each year from maybe u8 to 12 or 13 before it starts falling off and they start to lose them

Did I read they had around 20 teams per age group? And don't actually bother with the Dublin leagues but just play in house?

Any white smoke from Kilcoo?

Bit too damp for burning whins this weather.

Anyone who thinks clubs or counties are ‘just running’ in this day and age need their head checked.

Of course its not "just running". I never said it was.

It'll be a complete strength and conditioning scheme which won't matter a damn as the players can't kick a ball accurately over 30m.

Ah lots of teams are doing the exact same. I would be surprised if any team has done more than Derry at this stage, Gallagher has them in the trenches again, mad
Elite athletes train that way, intercounty footballers are elite athletes.
Club football is moving in that direction as well, with players now being as physically fit as county players were 20 years ago. Everyone tries to stay one step ahead and get an advantage. The majority of teams, with the exception of Kilcoo, are well into a SandC winter programme in preparation for the upcoming season. You are miles behind if your club is not doing anything at all. Dundrum is currently putting in a strong preseason effort, but I'd be surprised if they made it out of division 4 next season. And that's not a criticism of the players; it's just a reflection of the four relegated teams' ambition to return. Due to the strong u17s they had this season, Bosco and Attical will be favourites..
If a junior club is training that way then what is a division 1 club doing?

To be honest, much of it is because the coaches don't know shite about coaching skills so instead of upskilling the players just waste their enthusiasm running around beaches.

Looks like their fees are justified to the clubs based on all this training. Yet invariably the teams will stand or fall.... And by that I mean fall... based on their (in)ability to handle or pass a ball.

Wasn't to be our day today. Great run by our fellas and they'll take a well earned break now. Couldn't be any prouder to be a Magpie. Well done to Glen on their win too.

They've taken us on a journey we literally wouldn't have dreamed of back in the day.

The most basic team to ever win an all Ireland
No class and limited ability

So the team that played in the last two all Ireland finals and both went to extra time are basic and limited?

Even clowns are embarrassed for you.

Can't see how the pitch won't be frozen.

I can't begin to imagine what's going through Jerome's head right now.

There were many men (and women) that drove the club to where it is today from the 90's - but it'd probably be fair to say no-one* would be more responsible** than Jerome for where Kilcoo is now.

*Mickey Moran had the tools to work with because of the work done before him.
**careful use of words - pointedly not saying "no-one did as much as".
