Hurling Discussion / Re: Kilkenny
« on: August 20, 2019, 10:17:07 PM »
Would you listen to yas! We are talking about Cody, his teams have out performed the Tipps, Corks, Limericks Waterfords since he took over!

They duffed Limerick handy enough and while the first half they didnít finish as strong as they would have liked they were still in the game.

The sending off was huge, (justified)  especially since they were to sub Hogan! Granted lumping the ball into a full forward line that was out muscled by an extra man wasnít the best move, but you canít assassinate the man for one defeat.

Tipp and Kk have played each other in 6 deciders

It stands at 3 apiece now,

09 Tipp could have and should have beaten Kk,in 14 they were millmetres from beating them

In those 3 finals that they have lost ,Tipp have beaten them by a cumulative total of 31 points.

Cody is some man to set up a team when it has to be done on the fly not so much.

Lamping ball after ball into a Tipp full back line where Barrett was operating as the extra man and where the dogs in the street knew that the Tipp backs would foul continuously if ran at was an inexplicable  error

Thatís even before we get to him playing an injured Buckley,Hogan who was struggling even in the warm up and Adrian Mullen who spent a night on a drip midweek in St.Lukes,Youíd wonder why he hadnít learnt from Tennyson and Shefflin in 2010

In 2016,The Tipp Full Forward line scored 2-21 and he didnít very little to counter act this despite having the likes of Jackie Tyrell in the stand.

thought they completely ran out of ideas yesterday

launching long ball after long ball in, in the hope Fennelly or TJ might get onto it
Heffernan cleaned up
They don't have much experience as a team, I suppose
The previous version of KK would have known what to do . Shefflin  would have dragged them back into the match , for example.
Although 14 on 15 is a hard ask at the best of times

The KK 15 team that took the pitch had 40 all ireland medals between them,dont be swallowing the inexperienced or rebuilding line,their tactics were laughable to say the least.
They had more than a few young players who never played in an AIF before.
Winning is about building a cohesive team that plays to a system and gets into the right rhythm. It doesn't matter how many medals the older lads have if the young lads can't perform under pressure. When a team loses a few players have off days .

It wasnít the young players that let them down,a lot of the older crew simply didnít perform or werenít up to it,that and Codyís caveman tactics contributed to them getting a trimming.

He stood looking in 2016 as the Tipp Full Forward line scored 2-21 and did nothing either.

Given a choice between Laois and Waterford

I think Brennan would be mad to even consider them

Pat Ryan had the job last year down there and walked away when the players decided to interview him for the role

Anytime any of Ye want to become county board delegates lads,get the nomination from your clubs

Thatís just the first small step as county board delegates have as much say in things as a North Korean TD.

Power is vested in a small enough cabal and good luck with breaking in there

With Waterford sounding out Eddie Brennan,we might need to change the thread title

The fact that John had to literally beg and try and recruit key people to his backroom team when the county board should have been doing it might have been a factor in his departure.

The fact that we couldnít appoint a doctor for our senior county team says it all.

Savagely proud of our boys. As for Tipp, tramps to a man

You are a despicable and cowardly excuse for a man. Everyone in Tipp is a tr**p, everyone in Offaly is a c*^t by your anonymous estimation.

So do include lads like Brendan Cummins, the Tipp players who clapped the Laois team off the field and the vast majority of Tipp people who have nothing but respect for Laois hurling?

+1

But youíd be worse to be replying to that fool of a man who contributes nothing on here

Jaysus itís great to see ads for the live games Sunday with Laois top of the bill.
couldn't agree more, I spend a lot of my work travelling around munster especially tipp and cork , and to be able for once to be looking forward to being part of the action at the biggest stage of all is amazing. For Laois to be given real praise from traditional hurling people not just patronising praise but real praise has been brilliant... I couldn't be prouder of this team and what it's done for hurling in our county.

+1

I work with a lot of hurling people too

The past week has been absolutely brilliant,being treated like an equal,being front and Centre of any hurling conversation and nothing patronizing either,All hurling people want to see another hurling county at the top table,thereís been 9 different counties,winners of either provincial or national titles since the start of the decade.

From talking to the Tipp lads they definitely arenít taking us for granted
Tipperary are the most cocksure shower of c***ts you are ever likely to meet. We are shit on a shoe to them. Theyíve no equals in their own heads. Theyíre laughing their holes off at you behind your back.

Iím sure they would at you Don,then again most of the laois crowd on here think you are a d**khead so I wouldnít hold the tipp crowd to a much higher standard
The greats are rarely appreciated among their own, Iíll carry my cross with dignity. Tipp folk on the other hand are hated by everybody except their own.

Being a bluffer doesnít make you a ďgreatĒ regardless of what the voices in your head tell you.

Jog on,Son

I can guarantee you redsetanta very few people from North Kilkenny eg Ballyragget, Castlecomer,Freshford or Johnstown will be shouting for Laois!!!!!

Given the option of shouting for laois or Tipp

I think we all know what the answer will be

I hope to god we can stick with them,imagine 5 mins out and the nearly whole attendance of 50 thousand people roaring Laois on

I wonder will many from Laois head on to the Hill on Sunday?

Cork are going to take over the hill ....

I think there will be about 40,000-45,000 there Sunday.

18,000 Cork (ticket sales are nearly 15,000 down there and there is Cork people everywhere in the country
8,000 Laois(massive support for such a small county)
9,000 Tipp(maybe more but rumour is they are waiting for the Semi v wexford
8,000 Killkenny Never travel big expect for final day especially if they think they will loose
2,000 Neutrals (passes etc

Iím hearing Tipp have taken half of the allocation they would have been expected to take

Iíd say 45k to 50k

Lar Corbett makes a very good point

I know everyone wanted the game in Croke Park but from a hurling development point of view

Imagine laois play at home in an all ireland quarter final

Roll on next year
