I think Meath bringing on Graham Reilly and Eoghan Lynch helped steady us in the second half as well. From what I could tell Campbell was tiring before he went off. I doubt McGeeney would change tactics after scoring 0-7 to 0-1 in the second half. If he changed anything it might have to beeen to try limit the influence of Reilly coming on.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

I felt that Armagh stopped pushing up on Meath in the final 15 minutes. They had done this  to great effect for the first 20 minutes of the second half. This meant Meath could get out of their defence much easier. Whether this was from a result of instruction from the sideline is something we donít know. Geezer definitely has a case to answer on several issues though, primarily taking Soupy off. R
Also, Rian OíNeill, who continues to improve, started drifting out the field also which left us with no presence in our FF line when we were playing with a wind. He should have been told to stand on the edge of the square and stay in there.. He, in the absence of Andy Murnin, is our most effective target man in attack.  Occasionally Rory Grugan, our most gifted playmaker, was the man on the edge of the square?? We didnít use our attackers effectively. Finally, James Morgan has turned into a liability in defence with his persistent fouling.
Keep your pecker hard and your powder dry and the world will turn.

I think Armaghís card has been marked since Colm Parkinson has been singing your praises the last few weeks on his podcast. Woolly has the touch of death when it comes to predictions.

One thing Iíll say while I was expecting a big push from us this year, Iím not taking Cork for granted no matter how bad theyíve been so far. Cork has been a tough place for us to go the last few years and we rarely get a result from them. There could be a sting in the tail and our form has been up and down the last few years so I wonít be counting any chickens for the next fortnight.

Armagh with the strong wind, and no one in the forward line to kick the ball into for the last 15 min of second half ... unreal!

We definitely miss Murnin inside, he is crucial to this teams success as a target man. Rian OíNeill is doing well but Iíd better player running towards goal not with his back to it. When his decision making at this level improves he will go on to be a very good player. I agree on Morganís fouling we are giving up too many scoreable free kicks.

Template to beat Kildare is simple...

Pack your defence, slow the game down, intimidate, bully, harass, frustrate...get in front, be accurate and watch Kildare implode....

Another season in Division 2 beckons...maybe back to 3 to continue our relegation, relegation, promotion, promotion, relegation....theme..

To be fair that is the template that beat Armagh in Ulster last year.

I donít know about that. Soft penalty we got today not given and Jamie Clarke in the team you could have won that game today.

No I genuinely think Geezer would still have found a way to lose it. Armagh got back into the game and were within a point when they changed tactics to sit back. Itís infuriating.

Honestly don't think there was a change of tactics and it might even be a disservice to Meath to suggest so. Armagh had done well to get back to a point down. The Meath full back went down to break up play and Armagh's momentum- cleverly. Meath then got a well bought free to put 2 in it again. The legs seemed to go at that stage. Maybe the effort to claw back the deficit had taken its toll. Maybe fresh legs should have been introduced earlier.

We will have to agree to disagree. Once Armagh got within a point a number of players started shouting at each other and pointing to other areas of the pitch. From their the FF line withdraw out the field leaving Armagh one on six inside the 45 at times. They also dropped off Meaths kick outs and generally seemed much more defensive all but abandoning the high press. Looked very much tactical to me and similar to what happened in the last 15 against Kildare.

In hindsight you may have a point - up to a point. I don't think it was quite as simple as falling back but bringing McElroy on for Campbell was hardly an attacking move.

You were accurate enough, but you should have won by more.
