If Armagh don't get out out of this group it may be time for a new manager.

An unanticipated problem for Limerick has been the tightness of their panel and its difficulty in absorbing loss of form

“There is an advantage that some of the counties on the western seaboard have. We have a population of nearly 170,000, which gives us a distinct advantage over, say, the Monaghans."

Monaghan's Aughrim is population size. Fermanagh has a similar problem. Antrim has no excuse.

Limerick are operating below the level of Clare and Tipp. It's not that they had a bad start. They haven't been able to find their previous form.
Maybe Cork are below their level. I don't know. But there is something wrong with Limerick that wouldn't seem to fit with their status as favourites.

If Chelsea had a striker anything like the name, they'd have had 3 goals in the first half alone, some of the misses were incredible to say the least.

There's a bit of defensive work for ETH to work on as City won't miss those chances in the FA Cup.
There seems to be a lack of top quality strikers in every league. There was an Irish Times article about soccer yesterday that looked at Man Utd's options which came down to Kane, a £100m Napoli player who might not adjust to the EPL and a 20 year old from Denmark.

What's wrong with Jemar Hall? Did he not feature in the league ?

I'm finding the Cork/Limerick game close to call.

I think Limerick will have learned a bit from Clare and have a few high balls going into their forwards and having Guillane and Co sweeping up off those balls. If Lynch starts it would be hard for him to be as bad again and getting the hook might have concentrated his mind a bit.

Going for Limerick but only just.

Tipp to beat Waterford by three or four, you'd think Waterford would be going full pelt to gain some self respect but hard to know what's going on inside that changing room. The sight of Cahill and Bevans in the other dugout should be another catalyst, I'm not confident they have that kick.

Galway to beat Dublin after a bit of a scare and Kilkenny to beat Wexford pulling up.

Antrim have it to do vrs Westmeath with key men missing, that might be a tight one with all of Wexford cheering on the lakesiders.
Tipp had the Waterford experience last year. Sometimes the year is rotten.
Cork can score score goals but tend to fade out .
We don't know what is wrong with Limerick. The match could go either way.
I don't think the Wexicans  deserve to go down.

Cork had 30 all Irelands in 2005 and Kilkenny had 28. Now Kilkenny have 36 to Cork's 30
You would expect some mean reversion from Cork at some stage.

Donal Og Tailteann was involved in the strike that poleaxed Cork hurling. None of the Kilkenny hurlers were as polarising.

Ah right, so it still leaves it open for a Munster Champs v Limerick AI Final, assuming Limerick finish 3rd in Munster.
Hard to know what is wrong with Limerick and whether it is fixable. In 2013 Kilkenny collapsed having won 6 all irelands between 06 and 12.
Dublin won Leinster and Clare won the all Ireland. Cork finished Kilkenny off in an amazing match.
KK came back to win two more in 14 and 15. That was the last of them.
