2020 Leinster Championship

(Oldest Posts First)

Well the draw is over and we should be satisfied with it. A home (I presume) start against Longford won't be easy but is winnable. Then a Q/f with Laois. That would be nice in Croke Park where we could repeat our 2019 performance. We might get Kildare in the semis (like 2010 ,Navan or nowhere). A repeat of the 2010 Leinster final would be just ideal. Sluddenless, of course. How's about it?

If we beat Longford at home we will probably have home advantage against Laois. Happy enough with the draw. I like the idea that if wee reach the semi-finals wee will not know who will get till two weeks before that match. You would fancy the Dubs, Meath and Kildare to get the other semi-final spots.

Don't take Longford for granted. They took us apart in 2017 in Drogheda.

They took us apart because of horrendous indiscipline if my memory serves me I think it was 2 or 3 dismissals that day which in itself did not show much respect for the county jersey.

That was Colin Kelly's last day manging Louth.

Boys didn't want to know that day. Rumour mill working overtime before the game that Kelly was leaving and it showed on the pitch. Next years cship game will be very tough for Louth.

But that shouldn't make any difference to putting on the county jersey if that's what your insinuating?

Francie is that what you are insinuating? As Joej said there were rumours going around that Colin Kelly would go if Louth lost that day.

Quite the opposite actually because going back to what the poster was saying of how Longford hammered us that we should not take them lightly this time around, well that seemingly was more down to indiscipline indeed this was the case throughout that campaign despite gaining promotion.

That was Louth's heaviest ever Championship defeat to Longford. They have played 15 times in the Championship and Longford have won 5 times, there was 1 draw and Louth have won 9 times.
