Live on TG4.
Who is making the first guess at the team
Dessie to play at 11.
Whelo and Mullins midfield.
Dermo in goals.
Cluxton will be joining the FF line for a new high ball tactic.He’ll still take kickouts though.
JFC, football at last.
Heard only 12 Crokes players in starting 15.
Costello at 13. Archer, Colm Basquel and Dara Mullin on the bench. Although could see Colm Basquel starting.
Naw, Rock, Big Smallie, McCarthy, and that wanna-be Kickhams lad Cooper - all dead certs.
Discombobulationsville … I dont know which way is up or down anymore … hoping that hearing the uileaan pipes as the intro theme music gets going on TG4 on Sunday will start the revalidation process for us all.
Archer must start
Murphy Byrne Fitzsimons
McDaid Small Murchan
Fenton O’Cofaigh Byrne
Scully Kilkenny Howard
Basquel Con Costello
If I got 7 right id be happy
Would prefer Cluxton just to be sure he hasn’t quietly retired.
Don’t even think about it
Think we will get to see Shane Carthy in the blue jersey over the league. Will be a great addition to the squad.
This year is very different to other years, players have not had club champo to make an impact, going to be very hard for anyone new to get on the panel
In fairness it’s a long time since anyone ‘new’ broke into the panel due to their club performances. No doubt it’s an indicator of form but all these lads have come through development squads and minor/U-20 panels and are usually well flagged to County management teams before we get to see them line out.
And will be even longer . Will never happen again
I coincidentally just got off the phone with the Roscommon manger (a non sport related call) but as always a bit of sports chat to finish.
I asked him if still he wears his Dubs’ hurling mangement team sports gear emblazoned with his initials around the house.
