Yes, Kildare were very poor but I was completely shocked with the team that started. Playing Tyrone in Croke Park you should be playing your strongest possible 15. Leaving Callagahan, Doyle, McGrillen and Morgan O'Flaherty on the bench was ridiculous. Getting Bolton, Lynch and Foley back to match fitness has to be an immediate priority also. We'll see an improvement then I hope. For some reason for the last few years we've gotten thumped by a northern team in the first day of the league - Down two years ago and Derry last year. Come the summer time we've always managed to match those teams in Croke Park. Kildare will definitely improve on yesterday's performance but why McGeeney didn't pick what he knows is his strongest side is beyond me.

That's what he said to me Dave. Maybe he's got it wrong but he seemed certain that he won't be back.

Meath to beat westmeath and go top. The game against Kildare in Navan will be huge. 3 wins from 3 would keep us safe and with Louth the last team we play who knows Meath could possibly gain promotion. One can dream :)

Tyrone looked good in the second half last night and some Tyrone people are very optimistic about the current squad developing; they could surprise some people this year. Peter Harte finally looks to be finally fulfilling his talent while Stephen O'Neill looks to have got his hunger and more importantly his fitness back. Galway were very good as well, an away win in Derry is pretty scarce for most sides.

I was talking to him in the gym on Friday and he was flying and all set for a return. No mention of not playing again.

I think he might have trying to be cute enough with you there. As far as I am aware Earley is still determined to get back and play football this summer. Whether a fella from Sarsfields wanted a Dub knowing that is another matter!

Doublehop I wouldn't be too worried about losing a league game. As you said you were missing a lot of players. Plus maybe Geezer is getting a bit cuter not showing his full hand in feb. Could work in your favour. I'm delighted Giller didn't play the Brogans. We need to see how far off the top teams we are without them. Obviously our scoring ability halves so I'd be worried about that. However midfield is my massive worry!! Cleaned out we were. Still we've plenty to work on both Kildare and Dublin.

Doublehop maybe McGeeney didnt put out his strongest side , but you were in effect playin a Tyrone U21 team. Only 6 players started yesterday from the team that took to the field against Dublin in July.

Well only 8 players starting for Kildare on saturday started against Donegal last year and Eoghain O'Flaherty was in the forwards then. Either way, it doesn't make a difference, I'm not trying to make excuses. It's not like those players were unavailable they just weren't picked so the team we went with was the Kildare team on the day and were not good enough. We can improve although a win on Sunday away to Monaghan is a must now though.

Monaghan away is a must win for Kildare alright,they where not that bad against Meath,they win a lot of breaking ball around the middle,but they where also fairly cynical against Meath when Meath turned the screw,if Kildare start well you might see more of the same

Funny how when Kildare beat Dublin in the O'Byrne all the talk is about how these games do matter and its good to get wins in early to build confidence etc. but when they lose it's 'its only the league' and 'we were missing such and such' and 'this wont matter come summer'. Make up your minds lads, they either matter or they dont...

Is this aimed at me? If so you've got it completely backwards. I never said anything about the Dublin game being important, anf of the Dublin posters will agree with me there. The Tyrone match was a much bigger game. Not the other way around. It's because this game mattered that I'm giving out about McGeeney's team selection.

I think ye are all reading far too much into Kildare's defeat(even Kildare fans),if I was McGeeney I would have taken the opportunity to play some new players in front of a big crowd in Croke Park,he is clearly looking at the bigger picture..
