Just playing devils advocate here a small bit. We had 9 debutantes last night. Were coming off an extremely low base, thanks mainly to a lack of intervention by the DCB during the previous managers reign.
Galway never had to get out of second gear to beat us by double digits in Leinster last year. And Tipp sent us packing with an absolute mauling after that. We’ve had lots of the departed return already, though few lined out last night. Time will tell how effective Danny et al can be after missing so much high level hurling.
We should have appointed Kenny obviously, but in fairness to Gilroy, his hands were mostly tied last night with personnel being unavailable.
Looks like second tier hurling for a few years. But it’s all about levels and that’s our level unfortunately at present. Hopefully we can rally and reach a QF in the league and take our season from there. Dare I mention the missing Cuala lads also?
That wasn’t a reply just to Tayto!
