As stated I am from Cork, and I and this is my own opinion despite Fitzgerald's achievements he will cost you people all Ireland's. Composure and discipline is a very important commodity. Agitated individuals on the sideline cannot make constructive decisions especially when they think everyone is against them.

Credit where credit is due I am not taking anything away from what he (D. Fitzgerald) has done for Clare don't get me wrong at all. I enjoyed a great game of hurling not the greatest game ever but a great game non the less.
I think from the replies however there is an agreement that the issues about everyone is against me needs to be binned and go and prove that he can do in management what he did as a player. Remove the myth and there could be a fantastic Clare team for the next five or six years but continue moaning and sadly this will not be the case.

Watched the Camogie at the weekend,Bad Whirlwind in Croke Park.

Will that effect Clare's long range Game, if weather is similar?

If it's very windy, then yes I would see that as a factor. It's much easier to score from distance when conditions are a lot calmer.
I see that James McGrath is theman in the midle for the replay. I think that he was 4th official the last day.

Anyone got any ideas on starting teams for next day
Reckon Davy will go with same 15 -but Darach Honan won't be given the same amount of time to make an impression this time around.
Not sure what Cork will do -they might start Cian McCarthy

I'd say (and hope) O'Donnell will start and Morey to come in early if things are not going well. McGrath and Galvan capable of upping their game considerably.

Best of luck to Clare on Saturday. Last Sunday 31 Counties were up for Mayo against the Dubs. This Sunday it will be 31 behind Clare against Cork. I only hope you have more success than Mayo had !

same 15 again, maybe a little surprised that honan is starting - but i expect a massive performance from him. cork have made 1 change in bringing in cian mccarthy for coughlan. he is there to win ball in the air and to add a physical presence in the half forward line. really think that we should play the sweeper the next day, too many goal chances given away the last day. expecting a big improvement from the aforementioned honan as well as galvin and also mcgrath to do more damage to the score board. rumours that seamus harnedy is not 100% fit, time for the clare backs to be ruthless in the tackle ;)

Well done to Clare, fantastic team will be there for years to come. Ref would have been made a freeman of Cork if they had won,
