Kerry have very good young footballers, no doubt. But I don’t think we can take anything from last night, Cork were a shambles.
But I disagree on O Beaglaoich, I think the guy is well off inter county standard. I can only assume I am wrong and there is a lot more in him, he has been accelerated through the ranks. But every time I have seen him he just gives the ball away and lacks fitness.
The ground looks great on the TV, I haven’t been in it yet, but it looks the business.
Speaking of TV, we can all laugh about Carney and Marty etc. but the truth is they are just awful. It is cliche ridden, judgemental drivel all spoken in some weird acccemt no one from Ireland ever had (except Ger Canning). They are doing real damage to the game. They don’t appreciate skill when they see it, they are constantly negative and they are just unlistenable to anyway. Darragh Maloney and Dessie Dolan are hugely superior, as are the Sky commentators The RTE studio stuff is good, but the match part is hideous.
