in the good old days Ulster teams looked for a draw against Connaught opposition as a realistic opportunity to make an AI Final.

The first All Ireland championship I remember was 1974. The first year that a Connacht/Ulster team beat a Munster/Leinster team in my memory was 1991

Well, if we manage to wriggle past the Rossies, I fear that the Trifecta hammering that armaghniac projected would be very likely. Still, Iíd like a crack at Tyrone, if they beat Cork.

Pleasantly surprised they came up with a neutral venue in Leinster to suit all 4 teams. Armagh, like Kildare, are a team that have been improving throughout the qualifiers, after a poor first outing. Jury very much out on us; would be a major disappointment not to win on Saturday, though a group of death awaits the winner.

That match was like the end of an era
After that was the first time a Connacht team beat a Leinster/Munster team- Mayo in 96
A notable mention too to Ross Carr saying it would be 20 years before a Connacht team won Sam- that was in 95 I think. Good man Ross.

Tough draw but Iím happy with it. Will let us know where we are at. Can we win? Possibly. More likely we wonít but I like how Roscommon play. They arenít ultra defensive. That gives us a chance

We play that way because it gives us a better chance to win, so thatís a bad thing to take heart in.

Itís not really taking heart, itís just wenplay better against teams that play. We canít play against ultra defensive teams.

I think it's more a case of you don't know how to defend.

To make up for the non-Ulster venue, they appoint an Ulster ref. Not that it matters one jot.

Lol. Joe has done us over so many times you should be counting Jehovah, Allah, Thor or whatever deity you usually credit with this stuff.

It's not easy to support the Rossies given that one of them invades every thread with his hyperbole and ad hominem responses, but I'm going to try.
Up the Rossies!

He hasn't been too bad for Kildare post McGeeney to be fair.
