Replying To royaldunne:  "the ultra defensive system has been the downfall of many a Leinster county. (Obviously apart from dubs) well even them at times in past.
Meath have struggled I think more than most against it, Kildare too. I suppose we are two counties that never embraced it to any great extent and also have never quite figured out how to manage it effectively, all I know is that you have to get ahead and make the team defending come out."

I thought Conleths was going to be under redevelopment next year and all our games away hence tactically losing the odd league match to ensure we aren't promoted....

Look, Fermanagh executed their game plan exceptionally well so credit where credit is due. we made a lot of errors, many forced but way too many unforced and paid the price. It was never going to be an easy or pretty match for us so time to lick our wounds and move on. The beauty of league is you get another chance to put things right

Meath and Kildare both are not immune to getting 13 and 14 players behind the ball!

Kildare fans please stop the moaning. You know you are going to come up against defencive minded teams. Here's an idea, come up with a plan to counter act it. Carlow did it to yours last year, Fermanagh already this year.


If Kildare had the population and amount of clubs Fermanagh had maybe they would be playing the same way. Kildare's mindset is their main problem. They were beat before they got on the bus up to Enniskillen, looked outside, wet night, knew what they were up against, didnt fancy it.

Your probably right on the money there, by all accounts fermanagh missed allot and should of kicked allot more then 8 points, kildare need to look at themselves, blanket defences have been around a while now and for a team of kildares talent to kick just six points is just pathetic. Well done fermanagh the best team with the best work ethic and the best game plan won on the night simple as.
