    New thread lads😊😊 Any update on injuries for this weekends game?


    Mod edit: Given how the last thread descended into chaos, we are going to leave that closed and start afresh

    Welcome to the Waterford GAA discussion thread.

    This is consistently the most active thread don the GAA forum. As a result, discussion can get quite heated. But there are certain things posters must realise are simply not OK to post:

    - Personal abuse of anyone be they other posters, players, managers, referees, pundits etc. Any personal abuse will result in an infraction or a ban.

    - Rumours about players'/managers'/anyone's personal lives. This should be self explanatory. Apart from being a dickish thing to do, it can lead to legal trouble for Boards.

    - Trolling. Again, self explanatory. Trolls will be banned for a long time.

    - Accusations of trolling. Report a post if you suspect it to be trolling. Do not call a troll out on thread as this will be considered back seat modding.

    - Speculation into the identity of another poster. This is a site-bannable offence.

    This list is not exhaustive. Either myself or another mod may add to this as we see fit. Just because a certain behaviour isn't listed, doesn't mean you can't be banned for it. The general Boards.ie rule of Don't be a Dick always applies.

    If you feel a post breaks the rules, simply click this underneath the post in question to report the post and a mod will deal with it as they see fit.

    So be civil to each other and happy posting.

    Given that the thread regularly descending into tit for tat insults between posters, From now on, it won't be a card but a ban straight away for anything like this. The mod warning is clear in the first post but yet people still ignore it.
    Also, I'd like to remind people of the ban on discussing players'/managers'/officials' private lives without any substance. You can be getting into libelous territory there. So a zero tolerance policy will be enforced as well.

    Going by WLR it sounds like Noel Connors, Aussie and Pauric won't make it sadly

    Sunday is a mammoth task for us and a win would be one of the biggest in our hurling history. A win could be too much to expect and id be content with a good performance from whatever team lines out for us. I'm sick of travelling down from Limerick depressed


  • Registered Users Posts: 969 cul beag


    Socky
    Kenny
    Shane Fives
    Noelie
    Conor Gleeson
    Aussie
    Phillip Mahoney
    Barron/Dunford
    Foran
    Devine
    Brick
    Kearney
    Stephen Bennett
    Curran

    That’s about all we have left! Tommy Ryan, Maurice(if fit?)Hogan, McNulty, Dillon. Roche, Keating.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,713 ✭✭✭ Cake Man


    I'd be inclined to start Tommy Ryan, he's usually good for a goal and a few scores and we need a bit of an injection of pace in the forwards to run at the Tipp defence. I can't see us outpointing Tipp so to have any hope, we'd be needing a few goals.


    Is there any positives that can be taken from last Sunday at all? Off the top of my head:
    1) 2-18 isn't actually too bad scoring, particularly given how the game went and having had to reshuffle/reorganise every 10mins with the injuries sustained. I wouldn't say we particularly played all that well either and missed a few frees/easy enough scoring chances (from what I can remember listening on WLR anyway). It's not as if they were late goals to put a bit of respect on the scoreboard either as they came at times where we were still in the game. Looking at all the other results from both Munster and Leinster so far, it would seem 2-18 is a decent enough total to put up anyway.
    It's just at the other end where we look to have struggled. 2-27 is a hefty total to ship especially given our defence was always thought to be one of our strengths. Only Offaly have conceded more in their losses to Galway and Wexford, which isn't much of a surprise.

    2) Devine and Tommy Ryan goal threats - Devine broke the ball down well and got past two Clare defenders. He probably should have got it past Tuohy in the Clare goal but Maurice was on hand to finish but it at least continues to show Devine can create goal chances and is one of our best hopes of raising a green flag. Ryan took his goal well and again demonstrated his pace to trouble defences.

    Other than that, there's not a whole lot else to be optimistic about. Even with a full deck and with momentum behind us, we couldn't beat Tipp in championship the last few years so it's difficult to see a win on Sunday.

    Yes there is an argument to be made for Tommy Ryan starting that’s for sure. To be realistic anything gained at the weekend is a bonus. Hopefully Cork beat limerick thus qualifying them so optimistically if we were to beat limerick and Cork it would give us an outside chance but realistically it’s a huge ask.

    On paper it's a decent team


  • Registered Users Posts: 530 ✭✭✭ puzl


    It's definitely a decent team.. the question is whether they can find form as a cohesive team in a couple of training sessions.

    Stranger things have happened... I'll always be hopeful..

    Hard to believe we can come out with a team that strong after all our injuries.


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,609 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Does Brick have the legs for defence ??? Good team but I'll wait til the offical announcement

    It's all about how we line up, do we go defensive or attack

    We have nothing to lose, Go all out attack

    Cant be lumping high ball down onto that forward line like we did in ennis - when foran did come on he was playing corner forward

    Would be worried also about brick in defencr and aussies fitness.

    Whats the bench looking like? Shanahan make it ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,609 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Jayus a win sunday would prob one of the biggest wins in our Hurling history. If that teamed named earlier is the starting team than (on paper at least) is a pretty good team. Lots of factors though this its Do or die for this Tipp team, they want to prove a point, We hate playing in Limerick and were down TDB who is a very important player for us (i knw he was gone for the AI semi last year and we still one but the rest of the team was on fire that day).

    looking forward to Sunday, starting to feel like the Championship now

    Haha you are some man. We play offaly last year in the qualifiers and you predict we'll get beat. This year the whole country has us written off v tipp and you think we might win.

    Don't ever change pth2009

    Only a bit of banter pth2009. U have us down for a 11 pt defeat on the pools board. I have us down for 9 based on initial reports of injuries. I hope that the 2 of us are way of the mark. I think we’ll rattle Tipp Sunday. Bring it on

    I'm excited after seeing that team!! No sweeper team and we have fire power for points and goals with a mix of height and speed and wrists. If everyone is fit, I'd be confident we'll give Tipp one hell of a battle!! Can't wait now. Wish it was tomorrow!!
