Getting cold now to @Iomaint
Whitely for Madden. Dublin missing goals and points.
If we were more clinical this game is over and I’m a lot warmer
Sutcliffe does fock all, all day. Then gets a needless yellow. Get him off.
The days of ‘waiting for the ground to harden’ are over.
1.26 to 17. We did another bit of hurling for a while there.
12 point margin and people are moaning?
You had to be here!
Thanks for the updates @Iomaint
What made it so bad?
As CDG said above, we should have been out of sight by half time. The first 15 mins of the second half felt like a bad challenge match. Laois were very poor imho. Just my view. On a positive note, COS and Alex were very good inside. I hope to God that Alex is okay!
Laois getting ready for westmeath. Dublin put up a big score. Roll on championship and see how that goes
Dara Purcell Corner forward
Couple of nice scores
Delighted to hear Purcell came on anyways, hope to Christ considine is not bad. Poxy luck with injuries.
We did not score in the 2nd half until the 19th minute. It was woeful stuff from both teams. Dropping balls, not able to lift the sliothar, awful wides and nothing sticking up front. Not very encouraging.
Was out on the pitch after, it was bare enough really, it’s very lumpy too. Poor enough hurling surface.
That 20 minute period you’re talking about was Cat though. Half time mini games were way better.
Parnell park isn’t much of a hurling pitch .
It’s a paddy field with a stand .
There is hardly a pitch in the country with decent grass at the moment though. Most pitches around my way are currently closed.
Other than the lean spell, which usually happen when one team is dominant, I thought there were some fine passages play. Sure, the whole thing wasn’t fluid, but it’s mid March and the ground is soft. But within that there were some very encouraging performances.
For a relatively new team, they have managed to get a lot of muscle onto lads. Couple that with the athleticism that will come as the season moves on, we look physically to be in a good place.
