    Two potentially great games today.

    Clare have great potential but are hot and cold so difficult to know if they'll kick on from the great displays vs Galway last year. They are the biggest threat to Limerick as they seem to have their number. However, Waterford are on a good run and will be exceptionally hard to beat in Walsh park. The tight confines will suit them perfectly. I think they could win this one.

    Cork v tipp is another coin toss. As bad a Tipp were in the league, cork were worse. It's hard to read any form from either team other than poor form. Tipp have a bad record in the Pairc and I think that will probably continue today. I don't think the quick movement and short passing cork game will suit Tipp who would prefer to go man to man against a KK or Galway.

    **** me. That PA is there since the 50s.

    Plenty of empty seats at the end of the stand in Walsh Park after all the talk.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,535 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    Clare 1-0 Waterford 0-01 4 minutes gone.

    Harsh enough call that. No where for conlon to go. We have had a few goal chances already. Keep feeding that line

    Los of standing space too. Clare dont travel great but there must be only 7 to 8000 there if 11 is capacity

    Thought it was a bit of a harsh call on conlon tbh - Connors fell a bit theatrically imo.

    It was a poor decision

    Waterford's full back line look a bit exposed

    Needlessly overly physical from Conlon. If he just stood his ground the effect would have been the same.
    SOD looks dangerous

    Imagine this in Thurles. The tumbleweed would be rolling through. Small stadia like this is where it's at. The new reality of championship hurling.

    Not really. There'll be 35k at Cork-Tipp today.

    That's an outlier. Most games won't break 20k until the munster and Leinster finals.

    How in the name does Mahoney not take the frees. He barely misses

    There was no need for him to shoulder check the defender. Getting in the way was enough. The shoulder cost them a goal.

    Tadhg de búrca seems to be very quiet. Not having the influence he usually has

    Waterford won’t make it out of Munster, weakest team there

    They look very poor and Gleeson has to be the most overrated hurler in a very long time. He isnt a patch on Barron


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,642 ✭✭✭ citykat


    Did Gleeson just try to dry hump Browne?

    Up to his usual ****e, just a few minutes after throwing a Clare hurl into the crowd

    That’s what it looked like. Also it looked like he was saying something to him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,485 ✭✭✭ blackcard


    Shane O'Donnell is a very important player for Clare, brave and unselfish


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,535 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    I mean it’s obvious that Austin Gleeson is a talented hurler but he seems to do stupid things at times during games I’ve watched. It sounds like he believes his own hype a bit much from Waterford people I’ve talked to about him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,535 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    Clare could end up leaving Waterford fierce sick.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,642 ✭✭✭ citykat


    Fist pumps galore now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,535 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    Should never have been that close.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,535 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    Well the pitch looks better compared the plowed field it looked like the last time a game was played there during the league.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,345 ✭✭✭ threeball


    Fcuk me Marty loves his monologues.
    He got a slap in the back after the one he did for the all Ireland a few years back and now it's every frigging game.
    Shut up Marty, ya dose.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,535 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    **** it.

    Could be a long day for the cork full back line.
