A battling performance against the wind in the 2nd half had us 8- 1 ahead.
3 later Clare points and a last minute goal by us took the mean look of the board.
We led 6-0 at half time.
Clares first point came after 50 minutes!!
We were full of possession "football" and back passing but it sufficed to get us off the bottom.
Enda Smith took a 45 and kicked it back to round our own 45!!
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Still no away wins.

Kildare have 3 home games left and Laois in Portlaoise where we have a great record.

Obviously playing shit at the moment but wouldn't rule out promotion just yet.

Def not. There are a lot of twists and turns in this division yet

If Jack O'Connor can sort out that long standing flakiness issue then Kildare will be promoted. Poor weather conditions last night and those lillywhites simply didn't have the stomach for the fight.

If Armagh can beat Westmeath next time out then would fancy them to close out on promotion.

Took a wee while to get into a rhythm but when they did I thought Armagh played rightly.  Very impressed with their work rate all over the park, especially in the 2nd half.  Kildare couldn't match it.

Frustrating at time with sloppy passes.  I'm not sure the conditions can account for this.  Rian was at fault for a couple of these... in saying that though his kicks from the ground against that wind were a joy.

Could and should have had a number of goals.

Never a second yellow for Clarke.

Yeah, i think you're right. This next match is the one that will make or break them, a win sets you up lovely for a top 2 spot and a defeat just throws you back in the mix again. Which Armagh will turn up though?

May have missed this elsewhere but am I right in thinking Jamie Clarke is with a London club this year? Is he flying back weekends? What's he doing over there?
Is an Armagh backer footing the bill for this?

So he isn't in London, hasn't transferred back to Cross and is playing for county? Something about that doesn't sit right with me. Not affiliated to a club but playing for county. It's just another example of the professionalism that we've seen so clearly with McShane. Is he working at home again?

Wasnt the movie star playing football with Athy and county with Tyrone before he retired? Same thing as Clarke playing his club football outside of Armagh. Mooney and another down footballer are also playing with same club as Clarke.
