Haha, I know. I use to shout for Meath down the years especially against the Dubs, but Royaldunne has done a great job in making me absolutely detest them now lol

Replying To MesAmis:  "Meath showing great progress this year, having survived and consolidated they're position in Division 2 and running Longford close up in Pearse Park. Encouraging signs under McEntee so they'll be going into this game in fine form and raring to go.

Tyrone will be bridge too far though you'd imagine but but in a credible performance and we can say then that things are certainly looking up for the Royals."
Particularly hammering dubs in u17. Ohh we ain't that long away from silence of the hill. Hopefully dodgy keeper (5 past him) will still be around

Replying To RoylerKing:  "RoyalDunne doesnt represent the vast majority of Meath supporters. We are realistic enough to know we're in a bad place at the moment and have indeed gone backwards under Andy Mc. However, things are looking up at underage level and we should be back competing on a consistent basis at adult level in the next 5/6 years."
I don't think that post was specifically aimed at me. But since you can't post without mentioning myself, I understand.
How you think your native Kildare will fare in Derry??

Only thing I'll be doing is laughing at the new Kildare. Roscommon

In fairness under O'Dowd, it's likely that we would have been 5-10pts up at HT against Longford and then went on to lose the game by 3-4pts, was a common trend during his tenure. Meath football isn't in a great place at the minute but current or previous management can't really be held responsible, we neglected to move on with the times for a long time and fell way behind as a result.

Exactly Royaldunne. Those 16 years olds will be coming into their prime around the year 2028 so things are certainly looking up!

I just wonder can they keep a hold of McEntee for another decade until that team is ready?

With the Dubs in decline at underage and the Royals on the up it's exciting and not long until the inevitable calls for the split of Meath will begin!

Mick O'Dowd's win percentage ratio with Meath has been been higher than Andy Mc's, that istelf tells you everything you need to know. Meath are in decline and will be until Andy walks

In fairness the results are no better and playing well in one half may be better than playing poorly in both half's!!

"]I dont see that as beating a top team as Galway after 2001 in 00s were not a top team a top 5 or 6 team. They didnt win a match in Croker in 00s or couldnt win a qualfier game in 00s eitheir. Didnt reach a All Ireland semi final since 2001 and between 2002 and 2012 reached 1 All Ireland quarter final( Could be wrong with that stat they might have reached 2 but I think only 1 quater final, open to correction there).

From 2006 mid 00s into late 00s and early part of this decade, Galway were beaten in the championship by Meath twice, Westmeath, Sligo, Wexford, Antrim and nearly lost to Waterford. Their first win in qualifiers since 2001 in early part of this decade was v Waterford footballers. Mayo in the same time period reached 4 All Ireland senior finals. When Meath beat Galway in 07 and Westmeath in 06 they werent a top team.

Again only victories v top opposition by leinster teams outside the provience since 2000 besides Dublin are

In 2001 Meath beating All Ireland champions kerry, In 2001 Westmeath beating National league div 1 winners, two time all Ireland finalist and three time Connacht winners Mayo, In 2006 Laois beating reigning All Ireland champions Tyrone, In 2007 Meath beating reigning All Ireland champions Tyrone and the only win in this decade by leinster team v top 5 or 6 team outside leinster besides Dublin was in 2016 when Longford defeated Monaghan two time Ulster champions and a team who have been in the top 5 or 6 teams for the last 5 years in a row.

One of those years.

A league promotion and two Leinster final appearances in his forst two years.
What has Andy done? He has won 1 championship match out of 4 soon to be 5 and just about avoided relagation in a weak D2 this year

Can't see anything other than Meath getting a drubbing. I know Tyrone are missing a few but Meath are at a very low ebb. I can't recall seeing a poorer Meath outfit. Also very weak mentally. I'd love to see a competitive game though.

The facts and stats don't lie - Micko had greater success as Meath manager than Andy has. Look at all the players who have walked away over the past 16 months - it tells you a lot about the current setup. Also, you live in Westmeath and you have admitted you know next very little about the Meath club scene. I rest my case Dec.

Mick O Dowds final two years in charge were a shambles. Equally though after high hopes I think Andy McEntees tenure has been a huge let down. Yes the players are very average but quiet a lot can be achieved with average teams and solid management as Fermanagh proved. I just haven't seen anything to suggest Meath have the confidence on or off the field to beatTyrone. Maybe I'll be proved wrong and hopefully I am, there's no other potential manager as qualified as Andy McEntee within the county that's for sure.
