Yes Ballyroan abbey that's a fair point but my problem is when lads come down to the field hungover and not able to do a training session ,at the end of the season they then blame the manager for the teams lack of fitness and trophies and the manager then gets the chop
You mean nobody wants to hear the truth I'm just saying what I'm seeing in my own club in particular . How is it Tripe ?
Any "supporter" who ridicules their effort as a 'waste of time' can f**k off as far as I'm concerned. I won't be posting on this forum again.
This is not the team but would will make a guess: Rowland, stapleton, mullaney, carroll (abbeyleix), bergin, ciaran mcevoy , paddy whelan, stapleton, P Purcell, picky, J campion, L O connell, king, scully, w. Dunphy
if that is the back 6 for laois then we are heading for the Christy ring.......not one would get near a top 8 inter county side.with retirements we are lacking big time in defence. yes healy and a few others will return, the lack of proper defenders amongst the youth is a serious worry. could we perhaps try out cha at centre back and build a solid spine. the likes of bergin, mullaney and carroll are not up to senior inter county standard and never will be. if we have little option but to use them for now, it highlights the weakness in our set up.
