Replying To royaldunne:  "I'll totally disagree with you on Graham Reilly (also all star nominated) he was very well marshaled v Tyrone, which the top teams do. It's a known fact take Graham Reilly out of Meath team and they easily beat. Said by Kildare management after the semi final win over us."
If we play Wicklow or Wexford then Graham is the man

To put biggy in that list is jaw dropping.. i would have Menton ahead of him. Bray was outstanding and if any of he, Joe Sheridan, Cian Ward or Brian Farrell were in their prime now we would be in a great position. Keogan just gets nod for consistency and longevity

Replying To royaldunne:  "Classy. From a guy who thinks those that turned their back on county should be groveled to to come back. And make a classless attack on a man who has given everything to his county. Very classy of you."
Never suggested begging anyone to play, no point in going begging after alienating them in the first place. As for classless attacks, show me where i attacked the man ?? You are still regularly slating the management team of a few years ago including the great Trevor Giles, a man that can handle himself in a manner befitting county management. Good luck to all on Sunday, a win will see us in bonus territory this year. We owe Colm Nally a lot

Meath V Tyrone - 20 Like(s)

Replying To atta:  "Royal Dunne
How can you be so blind. I believe that Mcentee should see out his tenure but he would need to take a good hard look at himself in light of his carry on towards the Referee on saturday. Passion my backside, Sean Boylan never confronted any official. He is also supposed to be a leader and a disciplinarian. Ignoring the fact that a heap of lads walked away in April after the bulk of the heavy work was done just dosent add up. In his first league campaign we were close to promotion but since then with the exception of Donegal last year and Tyrone this year we were dreadful. Awful to watch. Could have been relegated except for Down and Louth were a complete shambles. We do not have a decent defensive system, Tyrone should have bagged 4 or 5 goals in the first half despite the f act we had 14 men in our own half. Give him his final year, I sincerely hope he can make decent progress next spring and summer. For now the project has not ignited and all his targets set by himself have been missed. Failed to get promoted either season and no where near the super eights."
Agree, look at Derek mc grath after his team were at the wrong end of one of the worst calls in the last 10 years with the ghost goal. After longford match it was the referee that was the problem and now after Tyrone it is the referee. If we did manage to win on Saturday Tyrone would be pointing to the terrible decisions given against them. Ref was very poor but gor both sides. No one has mentioned yet Eamon Wallace's attempt from stand side into town goals which. Barely made the 13 metre line. Bryan menton also had a hail mary attempt, brennan's free which hit post. These are the things we should be looking at and not crying over ref

Andy McEntee Was Right To Tell A Reporter To Stick It - 19 Like(s)

Replying To royaldunne:  "According to the Meath county board. It is the players themselves who make the decision whether to play for club or not. So perhaps the journalist should have known this?"
Oh my god, that is some statement. The day that any club, hurling or football is asked to play a championship match without county players is the day the club game is finished. That statement is code for players being bullied by a county manager that if they play with club then they are out in the cold. Simonstown lads took a stand on this last year

O Byrne Cup 2019 - 19 Like(s)

Replying To GlasgowRoyal:  "Honestly think we must have some of the most impatient and deliberately obtuse fans in the country. Last year was disappointing, no disputing that, but we've moved into an era where there are pressures on county managers that even Sean Boylan didn't have to contend with. It's hard to get consistency and continuity when the panel available changes every year. We seem happy to have a revolving door approach to management too. A few bad results for O'Callaghan if he were to succeed Andy and you'd have people on here baying for him too. Sometimes a little bit of faith can go a long way."
For the record i agree aanager should be given 3 years, but there should be positive signs in year 2

Replying To royaldunne:  "Full credit goes primarily to Andy McEntee, the likes of you is what's wrong with Meath football."
Reco made a valid point and you jump down his throat cos it doesn't fit with your one tracked agenda. Definite improvement in Meath and players are being given continuity this term, last year if a player did something like make an offensive run from deep he would be hauled off as it was defence at all costs. Great to see Campion, Devine. Thomas O Reilly, Lavin all making their mark. Need tougher competition from bench.

Meath V Tipperary NFL Rd 1 - 19 Like(s)

Replying To royaldunne:  "20 is good value imo. I mean what the hell will 20 quid get you? Nothing. A good day out. As I said the season tickets are great value if you travel to all the games like we do. And then ticket prices don't matter."
Watching 14 men behind the ball playing defensive and with fear of making an error is not my idea of a good day out. There are an awful lot of people to whom €20 to watch that type of stuff is a non runner. It is not the Meath co boards call though. Take for example the option of € 20 to watch Dublin V Kerry or €20 to Watch Meath V Fermanagh...... hardly the same product. I do expect a good crowd in Navan next Sunday but they will want to see positive football which would in turn get the crowd behind the team. The last few years has been like a morgue in terms of atmosphere in navan.

Replying To WhyTheLongFace:  "If we played like we did last night all the time we would be planning for life in division 1 next February ...we need to just have that consistent performance all the time. I would probably be happy enough to give Andy Mcentee another year as manger! Maybe freashing things up a bit in his backroom with new faces a Graham Geraghty or John Mcdermott ...also a new couching staff to take the pressure of Andy and different ideas always helps."
Do you honestly believe that last nights performance against an average Tyrone side (when at full strength) with the players they were missing is div 1 standard. The lads gave everything last night and fair play to them but we are still a long way off anywhere near a div 1 side.

Replying To Talking_Sense:  "I don't agree. Freedom of the county for what ?. Nally has saved his bacon if ye ask any players around the squad. Andy is to abrasive, and loads of players don't want to play for Meath and Ye have to wonder why. Sure the journalist who had a pop at him was out of order but he as manager can't behave like that . I also think he is poor tactically and poor on the line. Lumping ball Into wee Conlon says it all. Some tactic that is. We should be beating Clare but there is simply no certainty with Andy McEntees teams. Laois comfortably beat Offaly but Offaly should have beaten us. I would not be surprised if Clare put it up to us in big way."
There was a hint of sarcasm in my post

Change Of Management? - 18 Like(s)
A lot of people getting a bit over excited about this, it is a democracy we operate in, people/clubs are all entitled to their opinions and that should be respected. The vote went the way in the end that i would have agreed with but i don't see why it shouldn't have been debated, nodding dogs or yes men are not good for any organisation. All this name and shame stuff is nonsense. Regardless who is in charge we should all be getting behind them for the good of Meath football

The man has a young family, and really the type of thing that went on with the chronicle was disgusting, and he may say feck this , I don't need this crap. However he is absolutely dedicated to Meath his passion and enthusiasm for the county is second to none. Will he stay? I don't know , I pray he does. But the cb must do everything possible to ensure he does."
The man should be given the freedom.of the county and a 10 year deal. New stand in navan named after Andy and a testimonial for him also. Its the least he deserves

And i think Graham had a massive impact yesterday, kickout and keeper are fine and the slow transition of ball from defence to attack is genius. Conlon should have been left on and if Brennan was there we would have won it.

Replying To Belt:  "€20 in to league games is a bit steep thought €15 was fair. This will push the price of championship games up too no doubt"
Prices up equals attendances down, and this rings true more so for Meath at the minute as the type of football being delivered is not the most entertaining
