    Desperate performance at the weekend.
    We have no midfield or full back line.

    Very disappointing end to the year, we never came out in the 2nd half. With Heslin missing Martin was double marked and the other forwards didn't step up except J Connellen before he was injured. Poor management as we didn't seem to have a plan B

    did they have a plan A?

    Any idea who's made it to the junior knockout stages?

    I'll just answer my onw question - seen this on the westmeath gaa site:
    At Junior level, Multyfarnham & Milltown are in the Semi finals with Kilbeggan Shamrocks,Ballycomoyle and Garrycastle B making the Quarter finals. The last remaining Quarter final spot rests between Mullingar Shamrocks & Athlone and will not be decided until during the coming week.

    Now called TEG Cusack Park

    Disastrous season for our footballers, lose this weekend and relegation almost guaranteed. Don't think anyone has slipped from Division 1 to 4 in successive years. Most of the players are living off the 2nd half against Meath last year and have been terrible since.

    On a brighter note our Hurlers are going well and a win this weekend against Kildare will seal our place in the 2A final against Antrim/Carlow

    A dark day for our county footballers yesterday becoming the first team to suffer 3 consecutive relegation. Root and branch reform needed but the current county board needs to be replaced first.
    Hopefully our hurlers can continue their great form next week against Laois and secure Division 1B spot for next year and get the praise and funding they deserve.

    The Westmeath player who got the very bad forehead cut - will he be fit to play?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,288 ✭✭✭ dr.kenneth noisewater


    Good win for the footballers yesterday but a very poor game between to 2 very poor teams

    Westmeath were lucky Offaly were so negative in the first half.Completely daft tactics from us in the first half if we had the balls to play a bit of football we might have won it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,636 ✭✭✭ feargale


    Does anyone have the line-out of the Westmeath u-21 hurling team that beat Kilkenny? Thanks.

    Can Westmeath reach a second Leinster final in a row? Would be some achievement for a county who has only ever won it once

    And only reached three finals in the previous 128 years

    I think they might. a good start is needed, kildare are like a town team, if they start well they could overrun westmeath. if westmeath stay with them and its tight with 10 to go id be fancying westmeath


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,288 ✭✭✭ dr.kenneth noisewater


    Not much hope anywhere for us on Sunday with most people saying we should just have a go and see what happens. Will be heavy, heavy beating if we go with that gameplan as we just don't have the players. We need to just try fustrate Dublin and take every chance we get and hang in as long as we can.
    Realistically anything under 10 points would be good(handicap is -15 so I'll be throwing a few bob on that)

    They should surely put Heslin in at full forward with a couple of supporting players and go long. Dublins full back line doesn't look great under a high ball and realistically Westmeath are going to need to score 3 or 4 goals to have any chance.

    SFC final is between Tyrellspass and St. Lomans this year. Should be tight with Lomans expected to pull through after beating Killucan impressively over the weekend.

    Rosemount won the Intermediate and CFCW won the Junior already.

    SHC final is Raharney V Clonkill with Clonkill favorites.

    Oliver Plunkets won the IHC last weekend
