We are behind the times in a few different areas. Teams will only get so far at any age level now without playing to a well drilled system. Looking at the U20s on Friday there was plenty of individual skill and promising players for the future but the setup seemed very 1992 like. Pumping the ball into a static and big full forward. Who does that any more? Not filtering your forwards back to tackle and harrass? Not having a well drilled (and low risk) kick out strategy. We also don't get the ball forward fast enough, can't tackle and can't break a tackle. Maybe it's too much to expect that level of organization at under age but it is a limiter. Dublin were extremely well organized and took advantage of our structural weaknesses. We seem to rely on individual brilliance. Physical conditioning can come later but some of the other skills and instincts need to be coached at a much earlier stage.

I think we are getting there, ive watched a fair few U15 games and U14 games even watched the 16s, (16s being the worst) however did win against Monaghan the last group game so must of improved. But its also a very difficult year losing guys to minor then reintergrating them. The 14s for a new team are playing very well and you can see an element of shape even at this early stage. The 15s have been very impressive in the games I have seen and have excellent defensive shape for a group of players that struggled with last years set up. These things take time but we are getting their and the 20s getting to a leinster final is highly positive even with the result.

Minor Footballers beaten by 3 points by Kildare Id say thats more competitive than the hammering dished out by Wexford.

As for U20s stop it


Your points fair enough on Seniors.

The minor footballers were lucky to draw with Carlow. Do you want to keep playing this game?
How do you think the U20 footballers would have competed if they had drawn Dublin in the first round?

Lads, this is a completely pointless and unhelpful discussion. There will be no winners.

Agreed, but bitterness shouldnt be left unchallenged.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

Interesting points made by Billy O'Loughlin. Too many clubs in the county not producing good young players.....

Just your opinion I guess. What clubs do you think shouldn't exist as a matter of interest?
