He came on for the last twenty minutes. Much like the KK game. Hard to judge on so little game time. Can’t say he stood out to be honest.
You couldn’t ask much more from numbers 1 to 10 bar the odd mistake from some of them that you’ll always get at minor. 11-15 did not, to varying degrees, play to their potential and that meant it took us an awful long time to put away a very one dimensional Wexford team that was nowhere near as good as the KK team we beat. We looked very flat for almost the entire game. The two goals were scrappy but they came from the fact that we kept battling away. Nonetheless with ten minutes to go we were a point behind and did not look like pulling it out of the fire. Great credit to the lads for doing just that.
Management does have a problem the next day. Some lads who came off (and one or two who didn’t) played beneath themselves while a couple that came on staked a real claim for inclusion the next day.
Speaking of which that’s not until at least the 7th and possibly the 14th August. At the same time there are club minor league games on the 6th, 10th, 20th and 24th July. No question in my mind that all players should be playing in these games, certainly the first three anyway. It will do them the world of good. Na Fianna play Brigids and Vincents this week. Vins also have Boden on 20th. Crucial in my view that lads get games into them before the semis. All the training in the world won’t benefit them in the same way. I can only hope that management see it the same way.
