Do you need us to explain the championship format?

No need to be patronizing, I was expressing my frustration at my counties performance.

Cribbon for me was the only lad I'd have playing next year. The goalie too, 'coz of the tackle. He couldn't do much for 6 of the goals.

If you have family there then that's all the reason you need to support them.
Regards Mayo you may have a point but I'll still support them til the day they win the Sam Mc guire. I have family in Mayo.

Hard luck fellas. Deflating experience and i was a neutral. A couple of thoughts though.

I'm hardly an expert of Kildare football but they look like a poorly coached side to me. Basic stuff like running off the shoulder or at an angle should be the bare minimum for a side who play it through the hands so much. So often the man in possession crabbed across field with team mates running along side him or close to him in the same direction. Baffling. It was so obvious Kildare needed to transition faster. Kicking is the way obviously but even teams like Donegal can move through the hands at pace.

Also, there was no rhyme or reason to the kickouts. I saw a situation where 3 or 4 Kildare lads broke one way but the goalkeeper chose to pick out David Moran in a one on one. He'd been killing Kildare up to this stage! I chuckled it was that ridiculous.

Lots of other examples. This kind of basic stuff should be sorted out in training and it must be crushing for the lads who probably know better. No wonder heads dropped like they did.

Don't get me wrong I would absolutely love to see Mayo do it so many years of hurt no fans deserve it more but whatever it is I don't know they always seem to buckle right when they need to perform

more than ever now Ryan needs to be shown the gates of hawkfield

The future looks bright with underage teams playing great football but Kildare need to get back to grass roots and start again. So frustrating to watch. Either they play well or play abysmally
