I genuinely believe the lads will be very competitive on Sunday.

M Armstrong named at 11 for Sunday, when did he join panel.
Smashing player at underage but haven’t seen much of him lately.

Good addition surely, i ref'd him at the weekend, silly enough challenge game but he hurled rightly, has an eye for scores and strong player... open door policy i assume?

Perfect Condition for the Match  - dry a little cold but no wind; Optimistic we will get close today with what Limerick are missing but please let us get the 2 points;
Lets be a little more offensive and cut out our short puck out mistakes (dont mind them, its the mistakes coming from them that have let us down)
+10points I feel is a good thing

Another Disaster very disappointing - cant work the shortpuck out. Ryan in nets was very strong and thought that Rocky in FB played well other defenders were poor.

Really poor performance and tactics were baffling

Limerick players held on to the ball until they’d an option and with the running forwards they’d always several of them. We weren’t as comfortable on the ball and had very few clear options when we did. Movement seems to be a major factor in why we are so far behind.

Rocky gives his all every game and fully deserves the respect he has earned. Our two corner backs had a tough day - the ball going into the corners was good.

A hard day for the Antrim players against a good team. Will be hard to motivate them for the Offaly game. Could we do with modern, fresh minded coaches in our senior county set up? Specifically for movement and tactics?

Limerick have stuffed us so many times in the league that this result does not surprise me unfortunately, the worst thing about this result was the performance..

the big teams have now got into the grove with regards to training, fitness, tactics and system of play. We have the big game against Offaly and that’s the focus.. but we need everyone to lift it..

Now where is old timer ?

The difference in purposeful delivery of the ball, control under pressure and movement off the ball was very obvious. Was always on the cards going by recent form

What tactics the one where we pump nothing ball in top of 6 defenders and two forwards
No system, no movement, no first touch, no fielding,no pace.
Apart from that we are OK

See Maol Connolly left the panel just before the game

Yeah I seen him heading up the 'hill' before throw in with his kitbag and sticks. Couldn't blame him if he did walk away. Player parachuted into team after a weeks training would do that to a man.

Management no doubt trying to strengthen the team, but he wouldn't be the 1st person to take exception to decisions like this.......(if that was the reason.....team named a few days ago so left it late).

Being a young player, who still hasn't bedded a position down with his own club, on that basis I think he should've stayed humble and stuck it out a benefitted from the training.

Tough day at the office for sure. Certainly didn’t see it coming as I thought we could really test an understength limerick. 1B can teach a team some tough lessons and today was a real lesson in modern hurling. I still think it’s been a good league with plenty of positives to take from it however limerick were in 2nd gear all afternoon and totally blew antrim away.
