Gutted. Showing well and lots of positives but gutted nonetheless.

Anyone think that Glenn is picking the wrong team…. Woodgate, Kevin o Callaghan, Archibold not good enough for that level…..can't understand why he is switching his goalkeeper each game too…. Crazy that paddy McDermott Neil Flynn and Eoin Doyle haven't been playing

Neill Flynn and Eoin Doyle both recovering from an injury. Can't say O'Neill hasn't done well in all his games and we've now two keepers with big game experience in the event the other gets hurt. Don is still no.1 but now O'Neill is a ready replacement. Paddy Mc hadn't been ahead of the starting wingers at training I heard but he is a good shout, still possibly a bit light though.
Kev O Callaghan looked very good in midfield in the early games but I agree wasn't at the races in the past couple of games and Neill should slot right back in when fit to do so.

Paddy Woodgate I think is harshly done by here.. would you rather Dan Flynn? The Monaghan game was the best full forward line performance I'd ever seen from a Kildare team.

A few of us stayed over after the Westmeath game to have a look against Monaghan, have to admit we were impressed, he has an ideal panel, ideal lads in key positions, he is almost there with balance, I have no idea why Paddy McDermott Neil Flynn and Eoin Doyle haven't been playing, also I think his idea is to rotate the keepers, Woodgate scored 3 good points difficult enough, Archibold is a key player, a bundle of energy, a live wire and good at his job I think anyway. I wasn't at the Mayo game so I can't explain why it fell flat, I think Kevin O Callaghan is physical he won't be bossed or pushed around he is at least worth his place on the panel imv.

Agree with you on the goalie rotation but happy enough with selection other than that. Maybe no 6 position for EOIN Doyle when fit. I like Woodgate, has a bit of attitude along with the skill and work ethic.

Best of luck to the Naas hurlers against Ballyhale this weekend. A lot of work gone into hurling in Naas over the last 20 years and it's great for hurling in the county to have a club competing at the highest level.
