Here we go folks. anyone like to try and take a stab at the starting 15?

Will Pat go for some of the returning players or will he stick with the Walsh cup lads who did well until they ran out of steam in the last 15-20 minutes v Wexford?

Team selection will surly depend on fitness of returnees. Having said that! The Walsh Cup team did well enough. With regards running out of steam v Wexford it was more a case of running out of players in last 20 mins. Only after sending off did we lose our way. I think Nolan will start in goal. Winters also a definite starter for me. After that who knows how management will approach this one. But we need to pick up 2 points here. No excuses!


#5

Nolan
Hendricken
O Carroll
Madden
Crummey
Rushe (is he back?)
Barrett

Just an initial pennies worth…lots to consider.

#9

Says he is back. Which is great. But also says Saturday will come to soon!


#10

O Donnell played for DCU today v LIT. So if he came through that unscratched surly he will start Saturday? Donal Burke scored 2:03. 2:01 from play.


#11

i WAS HOPING A DUB OR TWO MIGHT HAVE SCORED A BIT. ops caps.


#12

Whitely and Mc Bride got 1pt each.


#13

Seemed to play quite a few of the dubs in lots of different positions, Mcbride in the corner, Grey at wing back, Whitley in midfield etc.


#14

No harm Dublin management getting to see players in different positions! Could prove valuable down the line.


#15

Crummy for me at 6 if he is not fit. Use Durkin/Mccaffrey to flank him. It’s not going to be our championship team but it’s great to see such choice. Other option is O Donnell fb and bring the young O Carroll out beside Crummy. Loads of hurling and a well able to mind himself.Danny at mf for a few of the easier games to get him on as much ball as possible.


#16

Don’t call them easy games! :sunglasses:


#17

Hedgo knows his stuff. The right man for DCU.


#18

Didn’t realise Hedgo was over them. Good man alright. Plus I’m sure he will keep Gilroy up to speed with who is going well.


#19

He’s a selector with them

Eoin Roche is the manager.


#20

Moran Crummy Barret at HB for me if available. Rushe may not start in that line fit or not IMO
