Anyone hear the Eddie Brennan interview on off the ball last night........ Sounds like he's going back to basics and simplifying the game with striking, control, first touch being most important. Apparently kk had it very stripped back with huge intensity during drills and games. Could be a fairly good year no

Just listened to it there now on OTB. Great interview seems to want to do the simple things extremely well, which we have overlooked at times. First touch in Laois has been poor in past couple of years so hopefully will be somewhat rectified over time. Ariel ball we’ve struggled a lot aswell no big figure to catch ball since willie Hyland. Hopefully lads will buy into it and great to have 2 good selectors on board. Would be more optimistic if we can get the best players to commit.
I wonder will similar approach be adopted in underage development squad. Such an onus on gameplays and seem to forget the fundamentals in hurling.
It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail

His most important task is his first one. Trying to get the best players to commit.
