Cunningham on the other hand actually seems to have some genuine quality and has shown it more than once. Breheny might be hunting ye this week!
he is a brilliant coach be it football or hurling he definitely has a great skill of man management to merge the two codes
but the player should always have a say in who is in charge , many of the galway fringe players lost there place on the panel for the better of galway hurling at the time , the mayo players had the same idea , fact is i would rather players having a say then some county board chief that has never kicked nor pucked a ball in there life the players have to be included in these process
as for roscommon , i remember we playing ye in a division 4 game less then 10 years ago , ye also dont need reminding what happened in round 4 of the qualifiers in 2016, most counties would have given up at that stage
most teams in leinster have given up, ye lost something in the region of 10 players since 2017 and were as many people regarded as out of there depth last year in the super 8s
5 in a row or not the real success story for the year has been this team ,and for the majority of football counties in the country is to follow roscommons lead and ignore dublin
fantastic achievement especially to beat mayo and galway away from home
