Emmet Bolton is also playing with an injury that he picked up in the first game against Laois. We're down to the bare bones at this stage. Bring your boots with you lads because we might need a few supporters to tog out!

Surely an ameture player can have a few drinks after a match a week before the next game. It's gone completely over the top and no wonder players are leaving the county panel. Even in the English premership they only have a forty eight hour alcohol rule before matches.

It's not acceptable for amateur footballers to have a life away from the pitch... Didn't you know that??

It's up to the players themselves to stop this though.

If all the players felt that sort of demands being put on players is too harsh they should just tell the management.

Made hard work of that win over an awful Offaly side. Thought Eoin Doyle was outstanding, pity it took an injury to Fergal Conway to get him in. Eoghan O'Flaherty and Paul Cribbin were good too. Mikey Conway done well off the bench, he made the goal and his passing was brilliant. Gary White's black card was a blessing in disguise, Tommy Moolick had a great game in the middle.

Let them off the leash tonight for a few pints.

He was superb. His controlled aggression would remind you of Glenn in his pomp.

It was a dogfight today and you need players like that to win those contests.

Kildare shouldn't be in a dogfight against the likes of Offaly, the team is rapidly declining under Ryan.

Maybe so but the lads who are still there putting it all in deserve support. It's far from a great Kildare team but people were questioning their heart last week which I don't think was very fair.

Andrew McLoughlin summed it up well last night on twitter. They're playing for the jersey and the supporters, not Jason Ryan.
