2018 LSHC Round 1 - Dublin v Kilkenny, Parnell Park, Sunday May 13th 2pm

That is true but give the lads time back with there clubs a change is as good as a rest and they would come back flying for the Kilkenny game do you think the lads where saying on the way into play the under 21s I can’t wait for this game I doubt it but I believe they would enjoy the time back in there own club training with there mates


#103

Ah so it’s ok to criticize someone because they haven’t won anything yet??
Daly, GC did exactly the same thing.
Maybe the U.21 Manager asked for a challenge match…


#104

Not criticising st Pat just don’t think it was necessary and are we saying the 21s manager is calling the shots


#105

Not at all, we don’t know who played for seniors v 21’s…maybe as someone said, he wanted to look at lads he hadn’t seen etc


#106

I read somewhere Gilroy has used over 30 players in the league (I could be wrong with the number) surly he has seen them all and as I said earlier the likes of AJ Murphy can be seen playing club championship in 2 weeks is St Pat going to see something in a challenge match that will not be seen in a full blooded championship game


#107

I’d hope so. It shouldn’t be acceptable no matter who the manager is.


#108

Work on & Develop a style of play


#109

At last something we agree on because from what I seen apart from the first 15 minutes v Tipperary (which I presume was plan A)I haven’t seen a style of play that wasn’t hit Danny with everything. So we do need to work on a style of play but maybe that’s something that should of been the first thing St Pat done


#110

That’s one of the issues he’s had, you can’t work on a style of play etc with so many players injured, missing etc…You mentioned AJ Murphy, he’s only back from a serious accident, asking him to jump straight into intensive training 3 weeks before KK game is mad…


#111

He is back playing with Na Finna which St Pat would see in 2 weeks time in a championship match and there is no way they would play him if he wasn’t training


#112

Ah come on, expecting a player to step up to Inter County level, and then asking Gilroy to a decision on him based on one game. He came on in the 50th minute v Whitehall…


#113

St Pat :joy:


#114

Cuala lads might actually enjoy a break away from Club after such a long season with them!


#115

Any reports from the game, did any Cuala lads attend?


#116

If they keep winning all Ireland’s they will be very happy


#117

But bless them! They need a break now and then! :grinning:


#118

I see according to that link I mentioned earlier that Galway used 33 players in the League and Kilkenny 29.

Gilroy using 30 would appear healthy enough so.

#119

For once I wasn’t having a go at St Pat for using 30 or so players that was one of the very few things I would agree with him give as many as possible a run while trying to keep a strong spine (one other bit of advice I’d give him would be don’t loose to Offaly)


#120

How about we send all the Cuala senior hurlers to St Pat for a couple of sessions and all the Dublin panel to Mattie Kenny everyone wins except Cuala and they have won enough recently


#121

That could be our plan B. The previous manager never had a Plan B. Come to think about it He never had a PLAN A either!
