I agree with the worrying areas of
2. Half forward ball winners.
3. A real and consistent goal scoring threat.
that were mentioned above but I believe if Kelly and Shutte care fit and can regain form, with Shutte in the full back line (with O'Donnell and O'Callaghan) Kelly could do a job similar to M.Fennelly does for Kilkenny.
Points 2+3 you can lump together and I cant see anyone coming through to fill those gaps unless management comes up with some sort of game plan to help create goal scoring opportunities, unfortunately we just don't have the natural goal scorers to create them naturally.
