Any point in this?
Are the Dubs as shaky as the League suggested?

Will Kildare peak in May instead of February?

Could Longford pull off a Foinavon?

Should Cork be banned for life or just let Ed Sheeran play Kerry?

Hopefully the other teams show up for this one this year, has potential to be good! Kildare at least have the psychological edge of beating the Dubs.

I expect handy wins for Louth and Offaly this weekend.

Wicklow v Laois could be a case of the least worst team will win. Anything could happen here, in fairness.

Any Louth fans on here? I'd expect them to come through and take on Kildare. They are a bogey team down the years.
But surely you would expect a team dropping from Division 1 to have too much for them?

I was much more hopeful about Kildare rattling Dublin but I am wary of a big backlash. Never mind Leinster, they still have a lot of class players if they get their stuff together.

Louth should be a good stepping stone for Kildare. A good competitive game. The danger with Kildare is if they have too much of an eye on the Dubs and mess up against Louth.

Wexford in Wexford is a tough fixture. If Offaly can get out with a win at all we'd take it. The U20's loosing tonight will make Pendar and O'Neill available which is good for the weekend. Winners prize is a 6 day turnaround to face the Dubs!

Louth should win handy, hard to see Laois getting beat but they have been muck the last few months after celebrating the O'Byrne cup run.

Agreed that beating Wexford on their own patch is not a given.  I'm hoping that Offaly will have bottled the hurt of the League Relegation and use that as motivation for a decent Championship run.  Our best performance should beat Wexford's potential best, but it has to be made materialise.  Looking forward to a good game in good weather.

Bad result for Offaly losing to Wexford. From what I came across of Wexford in Division 4 they weren't that great but good win for them.

Wicklow hammering Laois at the minute, another shock of sorts. Laois are really gone downhill now. I wonder is rise of Laois hurling harming football in the county. I don't think Westmeath, Offaly or Laois have the population to compete at a high level in both codes.

Post by: thejuice on April 25, 2022, 07:55:22 AM
In 2020 we beat Wicklow 7-14 to 0-07. Next weekend’s game will be a good measure of our trajectories since then. Laois seem to have really regressed so Wicklows win might need to be taken with a pinch of salt. That said we are vulnerable at the moment and have lost a lot of momentum after 2019. It’s pretty much accepted within Meath that Andy is in his final year baring a Leinster title win or getting to a quarter final and the taking a big scalp along the way.

So the mood of apathy might seep into the team’s mindset and if things go against us against Wicklow a capitulation is not impossible.
Title: Re: Leinster Senior Football Championship 2022
Post by: Shamrock Shore on April 25, 2022, 12:40:41 PM
Well, Wexford floored me. A great win over Offaly. Ben Brosan man of the match. Fair play to him. He's tormented Longford often enough.

I was correct in saying anything could happen in Wicklow v Laois. But I did expect Laois to prevail. The scoreline was hurling-esque.

Louth weren't happy with the 15 point win. C'mon lads.

A good weekend ahead lads.

Can we expect any surprises? I'm not.

I wouldn’t dispute that to be honest. It wasn’t a goal. Simple as that. Anyway, moving on…

I don’t think there will be any surprises but Louth will give Kildare a stern test and might cause an upset.

Meath vs Wicklow could be a banana skin though apart from his first two years Andy usually has the lads well prepared for championship and we’re at home so I think we’ll have enough to see it out.

Longford-Westmeath could go either way. Not sure of either trans form.

Wexford will destroy Dublin at home of course. Dessie to do a runner at half time.

Odd for Wexford to choose to play against the wind in the first half.

Dubs in need of a confidence boost and giving us all our kickouts and letting us play with the wind has helped. Only 3-1 after 15 mins. Dubs then got going and lead 10-1 at HT.

We’ll see if Wex can up their performance in the second half.

In the first half there were actual gaps to be ran into and they seemed to be pre-conditioned to stop and play lateral.
Then Con's goal came from a woeful handpass. Wexford were their own worst enemies at times.
The Dubs won't know where they are really after that.

Wexford and Carlow both in Division 4.
Laois and Wicklow both relegated to Division 4 while Longford avoided relegation to Division 4 on scoring difference.
Louth getting a look at what it's like to come up against a side who were playing in Division 1 this year.
Offaly's (relegated to Division 3) loss to Wexford looks even worse in light of the result against Dublin.

I'm sure it wouldn't of made a big difference to who won, but is there a reason Louth had to play Kildare a week after a big championship win? I found the schedule a bit unfair, and I'm sure it had an impact on the margin of victory.

I think there’s a realistic chance we can overturn Dublin. I don’t think one win over Wexford means they’ve suddenly turned a corner. I know they have some players back from injury but they are not the force they once were. It’s Andy’s last shot at them most likely barring a Leinster title and he’ll be fully committed to it!

As someone who was on the terrace yesterday for Kildare v Offaly in a spot that has one stand and then shared a train with a large number of Kildare fans living in North Kildare who then had to travel back into Dublin to get another train or bus home...I am not massively keen on the romance of the county grounds.

It's mostly based on the Dubs on tour and the craic they bring but in reality for Kildare v Westmeath it'll hardly be a full house anywhere.

Kildare look in good shape after destroying Louth yesterday and on the back of a decent League campaign even though they were unluckily relegated.

They have a good team and a good management in place. Kildare went with a lot of outside managers  McGeeney,Jason Ryan, Jack O Connor.

Glen Ryan , Dermot Early  Anthony Rainbow and Johnny Doyle were top players,which would give young Kikdare players a lift

Will they be good enough defensively to rattle the Dubs if that's the final? Conceded 2-20 to Mayo in their final and must win league game. Mayo haven't scored close to that total in other games this year.

I’m not sure if they are actually capable of beating the Dubs but they are at least capable of being competitive and having a go. Last year they waved the white flag before the game had started by setting up to simply keep the score down. I think they will at least have a cut at it this year.

One journalist has stated this will be Dublins 26th year in a row to have home advantage for the Leinster semi final.

The last Leinster football semi final double header in Croke Park pre-covid in 2019 Dublin v Kildare and Meath v Laois had attendance of 36,000.

 If these two upcoming two semi finals was played in O'Moore Park/O'Connor Park they could easily cater the expected crowd and with a likely better atmosphere.

I'm very wary of a Dubs backlash IF we get to the Final but we have speed and strength all over the field.
Our fitness levels look much better and we have a manager who clearly thinks his players shouldn't just lie down in front of the Dubs.
Still, being from Kildare I also expect some disaster lurking v Westmeath!

I was personally hoping for Nowlan Park, as I like the ground. But no surprise the Leinster Council put money as the main driver.

Probably not a bad thing for Kildare to play in Croker, assuming they can take care of Westmeath. But I presume Meath would have preferred anywhere else.

Ridiculous scoreline in Dublin Meath match, in empty Croke Park. Leinster football in a bad place. As for Dublin, they haven't gone away you know! No county that is funded that much and with demographic advantage was going anywhere. It's a shame though that people have long since stop bothering with Leinster championship, GAA and Leinster council have failed the province. Barely a tweet about these games.

You'd hope Kildare can put it up to them but judging by both scorelines today, unlikely.

I didn’t see the attendance figures on the big screen, but must be close to 40,000 there.  Not too bad for two fixtures with two very warm favourites.

Dubs were excellent in the first half. Ridiculous score of 1-17 out of 19 scoring chances.
Obviously caveated with Meath not being good.

Second half was actually an even affair, but can’t read much into that.

Kildare looked good from an attacking viewpoint, but mediocre defensively. Of course Dubs are no great shakes defensively either. Leinster final should be interesting.

Another year another drubbing. Once again left scratching our heads why we aren’t closing the gap. Obviously Andy will leave after this year but I don’t see any obvious contenders inside or outside the county that can turn around our fortunes. That said we have won a recent minor all Ireland win so hopefully we are an attractive proposition for an outside manager.

We are back to where we started when Andy took over, permanently stuck in Division 2. Able to hammer minnows but can’t threaten the top 8. Promising young prospects like Costello, Morris, Conlon Jones and Walsh haven’t progressed after good first years. They seem to have plateaued at senior level.

To see the likes of Derry move up the ranks so quickly makes it all the more jarring. It’s not like we haven’t poured time, money and a lot of energy into Meath football. It’s not for lack of trying but for some reason when it comes to the championship we are as limp as a wet rag.

I think our next manager needs to be from outside the county with a good sense of modern football and training standards. Same with coaches and selectors.

For all the good that is said about Colm Nally as a coach and Niall Ronan bringing professional experience to S&C we haven’t kept up with the top teams in either department it seems. We seem well able to run up a score against Carlow and Wicklow and the difference in coaching and S&C is obvious then but we seem to be so many paces behind Dublin it’s bewildering.

All that being said we aren’t boxing to our weight and if we have one thing is it’s potential given the number of clubs, tradition and commitment within the county. With the right man in charge and a bit of work I think we can get ourselves a permanent spot at the top table at the very least.

Very good performance from the Dubs today and their hit rate from shots was phenomenal. It has to be said of course that Meath were very poor today.

No clue where Kildare are. Like I was never worried we would lose but we conceded a lot and were very open down the middle. That is something we have not got a handle on all year. There is no defensive shape.

Dublin leaked a bit too in fairness and I do think our forwards could cause them trouble and neither defence is really up to it these days.

It should be good for the neutrals and can see a big scoreline.

He chose to pay 30 quid for central Hogan tickets for his two kids. He could have got 5 quid tickets in the Cusack (probably not central) or Davin.

Seems like all the Kildare and Westmeath lads cleaned the place out of hot dogs! Only chips available by the time Moyles got there!

Gerry Thornley was on newstalk a few weeks ago saying how the catering facilities in Croker were miles ahead of the Aviva. I was thinking then that he can’t have been in Croker too often.

Where he chose to sit isn't the point. He paid a bit more for better seats, but why are kids tickets only in one stand? This is gouging, plain and simple. 30k for a Leinster semi finaldouble header is meh, but kids tickets should have been free. There was zero advertising I saw either.

His point is unfortunately correct. Croker simply isn't a good day out compared to the other options in Dublin in terms of entertainment on or off the pitch and value for money. And that is down to poor and lazy decisions in D3. No hot food? And that's not an unusual situation. You simply won't have that problem in LR or the RDS.

They are turning people away from most LoI grounds at the moment. For reasons nobody really understands fans have flocked post Covid. The Irish teams crowds are way up. Rugby are doing great spectator wise across the pro teams. The GAA are only selling kids tickets in 1 stand and can't organise ice-cream and hot food for the Leinster Seni Finals. Time to pull up the socks and fix the bits that you can fix before people start going to the rugby instead.

Well Wexford and Meath couldn’t have made Dublin look better! No pressure on shooters, no pressure on defence.

Best for Dublin would be to come through a really tough game. With the objective being Sam, I’d honestly prefer to lose, than to win by 10-12 points, as we’d learn nothing from the latter, and we definitely have things to learn.

Kildare just can't be trusted. Like we shipped and missed goals the last day.
Like both teams are not great at the back so it depends on who can limit damage more.
I don't see it 10-12 points as there is a major attitude change since last year.
Our lack of goals is killing us all year, but if they get an early one then we'll see.
Fitness levels seem better too.

Last year i highlighted on here that Dublin was in bother. Less than convincing against Wexford where a mere 0-15 was scored and kept a mediocre Meath in the game until injury time, in that form it was of no surprise Dublin was eventually taken out by the first decent team they played.

As for Dublin right now league relegation seems to be a blessing in disguise they seem fitter and more prepared for this championship. Dublin overcame Wexford and Meath in ruthless fashion. On Saturday they should be beating Kildare by a minimal 8 points and come the end of this championship it will be either Dublin or the team that beats them that will win Sam.

We chatted through match-ups and we need our lads to play out of their skin to be in with a shout and you just don't know what you will get. Our full-back line is solid and Houlihan is a massive boost but the half backs are very slack and there are other problem areas too.

At one stage near the end of the first half Fitzmaurice took about 10 or 15 seconds to give a bit of detail on a past encounter with one of the Kildare wing forwards from school level football. Good 'colour' commentary stuff.

Morrissey's response to this display of knowledge depth and general interest in the men they were being paid to talk about was to sneer and guffaw at the idea that any of what was said was relevant or of interest to the viewers.

The robotic cliché bingo is one thing, but actively discouraging any sort of effort from colleagues is something else.

The GAA have shot themselves in the foot. Cork are going through a weak phase so Munster has no competition. This would be manageable if Leinster was healthy but it is very unwell.
So Neither Kerry nor Dublin get a decent test. That means just 2 provinces are competitive  and they are due to meet each other in the semis.
