Just by way of a little reminder, Vincent’s weren’t due to play themselves last year. Two to tango and all that.
He wasn’t. There was a replay in the football a week after championship and Vincent’s decided to play without him. I can’t see them doing that this year if there is another replay required.
Plus Vincent’s have a better team this year .
I was talking about hurling
So was I
He was on holidays fot this match http://www.dublingaa.ie/news/wins-for-cuala-and-otooles-in-shc
He wasn’t!!! The game went ahead without him and Con as agreed by Vincent’s and Cuala. They were still with the Dublin footballers as the all Ireland replay was played on October 1st.
Ok im with you sorry
Vincents shouldn’t play anything without Diarmo this time round…
The game against Crokes will be the defining one for whats been a very encouraging campaign so far
DC had a big influence on both games, easy as they proved to be
Lads have I got this right in terms of tie breakers following the last round of group games next weekend.
In order as below:
head to head
points difference (excluding scores against lowest ranked side)
No you are wrong.
Head to head
Score difference, excluding the scores against the lowest team.
Head to head
Points difference from games between teams tied only.
So Dublin hurlers knocked out on July 08. Hurling championship starts up Sept 22. Any other county do anything like that?
The Crumlin/Boden/Cuala group is tight isn’t it?
Also worth noting that Galway won the All Ireland but are already at the quarter final stage!
Exactly. Taking the summer off (good weather) is not doing us any favors imho. I know we play off the league but that still a ridiculous gap in championship.
Clubs won’t play without their players . I don’t think hurling in July with clubs missing half a team is going to radicalise skill deficits that should have been sorted out in players formative years
Well we seem to compete and win at younger than minor but it’s minor and older we struggle against the very top sides. These are the age groups where we dont play over the summer. Coincidence? The skills might be there but if you’ve had no competitive matches for weeks/months you can be well off yer game.
I think if an analysis is done of how much county championship is played in July people will be surprised
