The mini-league table has changed again following another weekend of topsy-turvy results, with Mick C becoming the fourth leader in four weeks. Mick was back in tenth after the first week but has made steady progress since then and moves up to top spot from third last week.
Barney, who is now in second spot, has made similar progress, starting out in fourteenth but this week makes the jump from ninth up to second. Emarty is going well too, moving up one place to third.
On the slide are last week’s leader, ontheroad, who falls back to seventh and rayosilke, who slips from second to sixth. When I was going through all the results on Sunday evening, I thought for sure that I’d be heading south as well but I did get a few of them right (even if I called the Derry result the wrong way) and so I’ve even managed to nudge up one place. It’s all relative, in other words.

Self imposed Red card time is up WJ and am back. Not one bit surprised I slipped down the rankings. Who would have thought that Meath would lose to Tipp, that Waterford would win. Kildare are a poor mans Mayo, losing when expected to win. Topsey turvey. Kerry will tell us a lot about ourselves. we do well enough agin them in the league however they looked ominious v Galway. Gooch sees Mayo as tough but notes that a win would put them into final place contention. I think they have too much for us but naturally hope I am wrong. I liked the look of a few of Kerry’s subs. All doing the simple thing right. Donaghy is a returning as a front line leader once more.
Welcome back, ontheroad – I think last week’s results tripped up most people. This weekend’s should be hard to call as well, as there’s more at stake now in a lot of these games (Galway have to get something out of their match with Tyrone, the losers of Derry v Monaghan are almost certain for the hop etc.) so we could see more gyrations in the mini-league table as a result.
You’re right that the Kerry test should be informative from our perspective. We’ve a great recent record against them in the league (we could even have pinched a win down in Tralee last year) and if we play to our potential, we could cause them problems.
