Limerick GAA Discussion Part 2

Mod Note:

Welcome to the Limerick GAA Discussion thread Part 2 continued from here after reaching the 10,000 post limit

This is quite an active thread and 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.

That Kilkenny team were there for the taking that day we were brain dead good 90% of puck outs went down on Buckley no wonder he cleaned up. Our pick outs are a disgrace the days of belting it as hard as you can up the field are gone look at Nash fro cork how his pick outs are lead to scores

😂maybe i am a troll too? I have less posts than that.. But it seems to me that the half back line and corners are working hard to make up for Richie mc and his lack of fitness or his loss of form for past two years. I don't see the point in mentioning one good game he had or a few decent clearances if he is weakening the backs the rest of the time. One good game is not enough and forwards not half as good as fennelly beating him in other games. Having said this I would love to see Richie back at his best. I don't expect it though. Selection needs to be ruthless regardless of a players popularity or past performances. It isn't though.

Richie has to be a leader from his first game in February promising a big one in July is pointless. That's what leadership is about. Get with it Richie or forget it.

BOC on bench tomorrow will keep some happy as is hegarty only want to see him as a back

Some nice hurling today from a slightly experimental limerick team. Well done to Tom Morrissey who got man of match. Great hands and skill. Hope they work on his pace for later in year when ball and ground gets faster. Fingers crossed. Good game from Barry O'Connell who scored nicest point of the game . Aaron Gillane , Richie English and Tom Condon all very good as usual. Congrats to them all.

You could try Monaleen out on the Castletroy side of town. Senior and Junior A football, Senior and Junior B hurling. Phone number there at the bottom of the web page

Mungret St Pauls wouldn't be far from you either

If you're in dooradoyle go to mungret(closest) or old Christians which would be 5 min drive away but if you want both I suppose mungret would be the best option

Surely Hegarty would be worth a try at half back ahead of p MC loughlin OK kiely obviously likes Hegarty in a forward role but for me we have more options in forwards than we have for backs esp half backs. I'm not saying he's worth his place in either but we've seen him in the forwards give him a chance in backs. Rest of team looks OK considering what we are missing looks like they've settled on Browne and lynch at midfield for the time being anyway

That's a really poor team. Paddy is not at that level yet imo. Two potential half backs in the forwards. We should be putting on score on tomorrow not struggling to win

I agree re o loughlin can't understand why he'd even be on panel but the mgt must see something in him and that's their job. Re the team in fairness we're missing a lot and with respects to Laois should be good enough to win.

Ofally's performance last night makes next week an awful lot more interesting considering what we'll be missing its away and our struggles with ofally in general I think it could be a very dodgy match for us. I know Dublin had a lot of newcomers but still they beat them by ten pts away.

Was at Gaelic Grounds today and that forward line wont cut it in Tullamore....Gillane and Morrissey did well but two lads there not related to forwards. Tullamore is a ropey place for us at the best of times and we ve struggled against Offaly teams that were alot less prepared than this one.
