We certainly do have the players. This myth that is being propagated county wide is farcical and only serves to protect and even embellish the reputation of Herr Cunningham. Bar the Tipp game in week one , we ran all the top tier teams very close , and even last Sunday we were close to staying up for long periods , bar some crazy mistakes and an unexplained lapse in intensity.
Now obviously he didnt have access to the Cuala lads during the league. This is the only asterisk id place when critiquing the regime’s tenure. But the bulk of the current panel, plus (minimum) 7/8 club AI winners, plus a cohort of those we dont speak of, equates to a very very strong IC panel in my book. This nonsense that we dont have forwards, Yeah we struggle to produce big ball winning HF’s , but have a look around. KK had to bring C Fennelly out there of late as theyve no one coming through.
And the new myth about inside forwards. There’s very few John McGraths and Bubbles around. Again look at KK , Blanchefield and Martin are good prospects but id rather our crop tbh. Look at Waterford , havent a forward of note and have still had great success. Certainly in comparison to us.
Problem is the master has cruelly alienated and ridiculed a group of fine hurlers and men that has reduced our current squad to beyond a farce . So much so that any of our results while he remains should be removed from the GAA annals after he leaves.
