Heslin potentially gone for 2019. Definitely won't be figuring with panel until after league anyway.

Ray Connellan gone for the year.

Good news for us.
Heslin is back guys, my bad.

Well said Unlaoised, lets close this thread and hope we can lock Don in here and throw away the key..
You’ve a lot of anger bottled up inside of you, I’m glad you have this release. God bless you on this holy weekend.

Was the final not televised last year? Or was it RTE Player only?
Wasn’t it on the same day as the provincial hurling finals?

Certainly not - and apologies to anyone who would have taken offence.
I was alluding to you propensity to use the F word constantly and unnecessarily in your posts.
I do in my f**k

Have we lost a player to the states??
Depression and anxiety? Sadness and melancholy?

All that and Tourette syndrome too - that's a heavy load for you.
Get well soon Don.
Are you making fun of mentally handicapped People here? I’d really hope not.

Very tight competition last year and I'd guess it will be as competitive this year, definitely deserves much more coverage.
Coverage? The f**kers only announced the fixtures yesterday. Not two f**ks are given about this by the GAA

What does bolter mean ?

A bastardised term from thugby, and specifically the Lions, to signify a player who will come from nowhere to make the starting 15.

Example in GAA terms, Munnelly in 2003.

At the moment, the full forward line worries me the most. They are too static, and I have a feeling that Evan and Donie don't play well together. When the two of them are on the pitch at the same time, teams can go forward with a little more abandon and in numbers, knowing that they have time to track back. I found it amazing that Westmeath"s full back was so adventurous, and even managed to score a point. Timmons did too, but that was a rare foray. This guy was at it all second half.

On top of the above, we are too easy to score against. Playing a sweeper now looks like a necessity. That doesn't bother me, but pace from deep should be the focus, rather than lack of pace up front. We might just have found our level and for all our players, it looked to me like Westmeath had the two best players on the pitch. Stop Heslin and Egan and it's game on. That has to be the priority
I have a lot of time for Donie, and also understand his shortcomings, which aren't going to change at this point. But lets ask ourselves this, who has he ever played well with? I don't mean this as a criticism of him, far from it, he is a gifted player, supremely so, but who has ever been his best foil? This is the nub of your problem.

Him and Evan can of course play beside each other, it just needs to be worked on how best this happens.
