Good to be here. Good interview with Daniel Flynn after the game today about how much they are enjoying their football, as fans this year has been a pleasure also. Whatever about the result in the final hopefully we will get an enjoyable day in the dive that is Croke Park and hopefully the lads perform.

Reasons for optimism:
Paul Cribbin should be back, coupled with Neil Flynn's return to fitness means there are plenty of options in attack.
Niall Kelly is off form but won't be forever.
Paddy Brophy will improve in 3 weeks, one of the best ball winner inside forward in the country, it wasn't a bad performance from someone who has only played 15 minutes of an uncompetitive club championship game and a challenge match for his club against the Kildare junior team since his return.
We show no signs of conceding 7 goals in a single match again.

Caught the end of the coverage on radio 1, after talking about how good Flynn was, Dessie Dolan informed us that "it seemed to be a tactic for Kildare, get the ball to flynn"  :o

Hard to believe he's getting paid for that sort of shit

Does not come across as "the sharpest tool in the shed", that's for sure.
But par for the course with RTÉ

Eh that was a very competitive club championship match, it's was Celbridges bench and the fact they could bring on someone like Paddy Brophy that made difference  >:(

Should be closer this year. Tá Cill Dara ag teacht. Dubs will fade at some stage. Even Kilkenny had to. This year would be ideal.
Last of the choc-ices there now

Kilkenny have faded but that has a lot to do with their underage slowing down. The Dubs have serious options in terms of the younger lads, but that being said some of those guys are the same age as key Kildare players who already have at least two years of senior action behind them.
One thing that seems to be right is the conditioning. Being able to live with the Dubs is where most of the teams just off the elite end up getting blown away. Kildare look in great nick and look lean and strong.
Westmeath I fear won't live with them but they will put it up to them for a period and the replay will surely have them refined a bit more.
them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

Ah it was a game Celbridge won in 2nd gear. The tanned one's bias kept the scoreboard respectable but by the time Paddy came on they were pulling well clear. It was an impressive performance from him that day considering he only flew back in from Australia within the previous 24hrs but Towers will be at the bottom end of the senior championship.

Towers will be alright. They'll deal with Eadestown if the worst comes to the worst.

Ciaran Whelan hit the nail on the head about Kildare needing to perform well in Croke Park. I think this is a year or two too soon for us to have a realistic chance of an upset win, but I'd be satisfied if we simply played well for most of the game to banish the hangover from the 2015 horror shows.

The Dubs are peaking too early.

Hope they don't tell the Dubs where they're playing it.
