His under 21 performance against Kerry in 2011 is probably the most dominant performance by one player I've ever seen in an inter county game. Didn't think he was our worst performer against Kerry this year (and he missed the entirety of the league as well) but for those who played in the early 10's glory days it would probably depress the living shite out of them to see what's around them these days, the guy is 28 now as well and probably thinks real life should come ahead of putting everything into something with next to zero chance of silverware. I find it quite hard to see us stay in division 2 next year because it will be a good bit higher a standard now. Meanwhile we seem to still think that discarding players who have proven their worth before things went to pot is still the way to go, replacing them with lads who are thrown in simply based on being younger. If Mayo/Donegal had done similar in 2010 they would have gone nowhere.
Very good post why do we f... away good players the guy has 2 All-Stars, An All-Ireland senior medal , an All-Ireland u21 medal , young player of the year award....and McCarthy tells him feck off its maddening ...this manager felt we now need a coach came in last year and did not need one ….this guy does not know what hes doing but sure we will keep him on for another years. Cuthbert god rid of experienced players and look where it got us ….Walsh missed the league this year so he was only getting into thing again.
