Hurling Team Of The Year 2019

Replying To Pope_Benedict:  "The end of Kilkenny Wexford was the same as the 'disgrace of Gijón' 1982 between West Germany & Austria. I don't think poor oul Algeria have been back in a Leinster Final since either. Teams going through the motions to fix an appropriate result that suited both sides, once the Dublin/Galway result was 'in'. As Cyril Farrell would say, 'it's something 'they' need to look at'!!"
Believe what you want!!!!

Mullen is ahead of Fennelly and Gillane in my opinion. Tipp won 7/8 games and were easily top scorers in the cship yet only got one forward in. Probably make a case for Forde but hard to know.
I'd also have an all Tipp Half back line with Liam Ryan full back and Matthew O'Hanlon unlucky to miss out. I think Padraig Walsh was immense in the Leinster cship mostly but had 3 below par performances.

My nominees for Hurler of the year would be Callanan, McGrath and Ronan Majer with Brendan and Pat Horgan unlucky to lose out.

Soory typo above. Should have said 'there was NO settling for a draw

Bubbles ahead of Fennelly every day of the week. Bubbles did something special in every match a class act.
Toss up between Finn and Barrett.
Michael Breen very unlucky but O Keefe was excellent and Wexford deserve three IMO.

Ronan Maher would be my HOTY 2019. Seemed to be consistently outstanding any time I saw him play.

I nominate Joe Canning. No seriously I'd vote for Pat Horgan if I had a vote.

Look Galway masters of their own downfall but beyond question once the galway result was in KK and the YELLOW BELLIES downed tools. Karma caught up with both teams and next year oh next year the hurt and betrayal will be a motivation for us to kick some ass .

After the semi final I said he was nailed on for it. Consistently 9/10 but like Paudie for many seasons, that's not always enough. Every other player had at least one or two below par performances.

ya look the draw really was worked nicely by them but they got what they deserved. Galway would have been better off losing in Nowlan Park as we would have gone all out in Parnell.

I think it is between him and Noel Mcgrath. I hate the way forwards are always in the conversation by default.

Yeah Bubbles always seems to get overlooked by the All Stars. He scored 0-7 from play the first day out against Cork.

In one game he didn't score much if at all but set up loads of scores for teammates.
