We have it in us to win though it depends a lot on the mood in the camp and also how Sligo approach the game. If Sligo pull men back or crowd the space between midfield and the half forwards we could be in for dogged time.

A quick look on Wikipedia suggests we never met in the qualifiers. We played the Rossies a few times. Must have been in the league the most recent games.

Any idea when we last met Sligo in the championship? I have a vague memory of us playing in the qualifiers sometime possibly under Boylan or Eamon Barry. Doesn't happen often. Before then I don't think our paths crossed in my lifetime.

I wasn't  as depressed as yourself Hardy.......
Hardy?

His post was so long that by the time I got to the end I forgot who wrote it. Sure it's bound to be him or the other fella, does it matter.

I wasn't  as depressed as yourself Hardy. I think Andy and Gerry need to work on a plan B if graham and Cillian are being crowded out and prevented from running. It was clear in the first half we needed more support in midfield for the breaks so pulling lads back and maybe leaving Lenihan and O'Sullivan up front by themselves. It might have stopped some of the bleeding at the back and gave the forwards some space.

God, we still have a lot of work to do. Thought it would be a lot closer.

Kildare better in the strength and fitness stakes. But also tactically they knew where to snuff out our threats. Reilly and O'Sullivan were well marshalled. Unfortunately none of our other threats from the last game made an impact in their place. Jones and Wallace weren't effective. Kildares tackling was very impressive I have to say.

They'll give the Dubs a rattle but they really need to be way better at taking their scores.

Same team as the Louth game. That would lead me to conclude we are not going to change our approach.

I'm pretty sure this fixture used to bring out 50-60,000. Especially for that three in a row.

I'm sure once Kildare get to a semi-final or final they'll be back in their droves.

The above assessment is probably fair. Given the goal chances ye had in the league and then the last day against Louth, our biggest concern is our corner backs and some of the half back line. Other threats besides Reilly have emerged so hopefully we don't have too much riding on him producing the bulk of our scores.

In fairness to Paddy O'Rourke he is a good shot stopper and the type of mistakes he made the last day probably won't happen again for at least another few games hopefully. I expect a tight game and really could go either way.

By the way if we lose you'd probably see the sages on hoganstand going back to doom and gloom mode.

I'll be at home minding the young lad so I won't be able to get out to a pub. Now TV will have to do. Whatever I give th will only be a drop in the ocean anyway.

Might have to go against my own beliefs and pay sky to watch the Meath Kildare game. I never thought I would but the online free streams are so unreliable I don't want to miss it.

What's the best deal for a once off payment to sky. I have no interest in anything else they show so not going for a package.

It was heartening to see young Jones running at them as well. We need more than just Reilly doing that if we are to win things. The last few years it was just him and he was spent by half time.

I don't think it's too much of a problem if Cillian had a quiet game if we still scored 27 points.

Fitness and mental resolve have markedly improved compared to the Mick O'Dowd years.
