Why now? Isn't it obvious? Our performances have been really poor, and consistently really poor against better opposition. If we didn't have the best players on the panel over the last 6-7 how come results were better then than they are now with the best players being there?

I'd love you name the best players who were not on the panel over the last 6/7 years but I doubt you will. Very easy to throw out lines like but anyone who does come out with statements like that rarely backs it up with actual names.

I said in 2022 that it was time for Andy to go so I certainly wasn't asking for him to stay on. I was asked why am I complaining now and gave the reason that performances have consistently been very poor. But sure that doesn't matter I suppose because in 2026 the switch will be flicked and we'll be flying

Replying To LeitrimRoyal99:  "I never said the lads in the panel aren't the best players. I think they are the best players in Meath bar maybe a few things on the fringes like Cathal Finnegan. What I take issue with is the excuse that lads are only there because they're young. If he wanted experience he could have not dropped Conor McGill, could have given Shane McEntee game time last year, could have not dropped James McEntee this year. I do think most of our best players are on the panel they're just playing below what they should be"
What age is James McEntee now?. He was a top player and haven't heard of him playing county for a long time.

Its amazing how if we had a really good coaching ticket in place you wouldn't be talking about the good players that are missing. You would be talking about how good these players that are playing are. I believe that! If Harte or Mcguinness were in charge you would see how good a lot of our players are!
I've said it since the first OB Cup match that we are going nowhere with the current coaching staff. No disrespect to them but they are too inexperienced themselves especially for the new modern intercounty football.
it is evident in our style of play and even the fitness levels of a lot of the players. Way off the pace!
When managers are at a stage of making excuse after excuse you know we are on a slippery slope!
