Very acceptable result and performance. Anyone who expected us to beat this Dublin team, first time out, doesn't know much about football. The 2 times we beat Dublin in 98 and 00, the Dubs were at their weakest in memory....some really poor players on those teams. Id say about 3 would make the current setup. Looking forward to the next day...2 big losses in Feely and Doyle possibly but Conway covers centre back. Fionn Dowling may get in to take the frees.

Good performance from Kildare. Dominated Midfield imo and looked decent, couple of things to work to get to next level over the next couple of years and well capable of it with their massive cash reserves.

Why is Feely out of the next game, injured or?

As for Dubs, greatest of all time and play the best football of all time, enjoy every second and lap it up it wont last forever.

Dublin's forwards were super and attacking play in general was top class.

Pity about Feely for Kildare. Class act.

Worrying for Dublin that O'Sullivan and in particular Fenton are out of sorts. Philly too, but hopefully that was just rust after his layoff.

Also our full back line will struggle against any team that plays 3 in the FF line. We can definitely be got at. I'm hoping Mayo take out Kerry.

Delighted with O'Callaghan's performance. We were always going to need something different this year. Wouldn't be surprised to see Brian Howard play a key role this year.

From Kildare's POV, they're moving in the right direction. They need to keep O'Neill for the forseeable future.

They won midfield and didn't drop the head against a very good team.
