Tipperary 6-26 Dublin 1-19
Just reading that scoreline is soul destroying for anyone involved in hurling in Dublin. To see how far we have fallen since 2013 is the gut wrenching thing. We as a county and those players are better than this. Lads who did not play up to standards will have to live with that but I hate to say I told you so or sound like I am gloating as i certainly am not, but tonight’s result and performance was the natural conclusion to what has been coming over the past three years. I though the optimism on here was very misplaced. No plan, no passion and not having our best players togging out has been a constant problem.
Players have to shoulder responsibility collectively as do DCB but the management team must face up to a disastrous period in charge of Dublin Hurling.
Were just going to have to live with this beating for a while and regroup over the long winter thank god were in Div 1B to rebuild again.
