Dublin Senior Hurling Team 2017


#800

KK pulled out of Walsh Cup because of squad numbers.


#801

I think these cups are losing their lustre. They’re going to turn into U21/Colleges competitions soon.

Letting the colleges enter and giving them first choice was their death knell.


#802

eliminating the colleges from those warmup challenge games or else insist the counties have first call not the college team would be a start anyways


#803

That’s your opinion or you could even call it a prediction but one thing it most certainly isn’t is a fact. Having confessed to being an English teacher on a different thread you should understand the difference.

As for it being a good year, that depends on your expectations. Retaining division 1 status would be a good year for me. We won’t be competitive with the top teams in the championship but if we continue to blood young lads who show good character I’d be happy enough.


#804

I am well aware of the difference thanks.


#805

No, they didn’t. They are playing DCU at Dumore on Thursday night. It’ll be their U21 squad, as the seniors are off the team holiday, but they’ll be back in time to fulfill the 2 remaining fixtures


#806

Who knows the next Dublin manager and selectors could come from this very page :grin:


#807

Lol :slight_smile:


#808

We’re all behind the players, I’ve no doubt some of them have good county careers ahead of them, but it’s really not ideal to be blooding so many at the same time. But there’s not much choice at this stage because for one reason or another a wealth of experience aren’t available.


#809

Don’t quite know where to put this, Conal Keaney has had his Club County, Provincial and All Ireland medals stolen from his car.


#810

That’s fxxking shocking ! Just saw his tweet . Like how would you shift these :dizzy_face:, melt them down or something ??


#811

Yeh you’d imagine they’d only be of any value to whoever stole them if they melted them down


#812

Why were they in his car? I wouldn’t leave a soiled nappy in the car.

Dermot Deasy had his stolen in a burglary a couple of years ago and I don’t think he ever got it back.


#813

You’d imagine they wouldn’t have been left out in the car so maybe he was targeted , some scum out there :unamused:
