Fair play to Liam Sheedy on The Sunday Game for pointing out that it was wrong and cost Galway the win so stop your "whinging"!"
I would not take much notice of anything Sheehy would say. In 2020 he was Johnny
Murphy, a Limerick ref, more or less favoured Galway when they met Tipp. This was utter nonsense as Limerick had wiped the floor with on their two previous meetings and we're more afraid of meeting Galway.

Replying To Trump2020:  "Any news on CONOR Whelans injury? Hopefully it's not much. Galway Abu."
It's his back from carrying the other 14 players. Lol. All the giving out about Cooneys free and nothing about the 10 steps for Galways goal. Just tell Limerick to hold onto Liam"different gravy"

Replying To BLT:  "Fahy from Ardrahan will do well to puck a ball for the rest of the year. Thought Niland was ready to play IC and while granted he was played out of position, I may have to revise my initial opinion of him."
i agree with you but he is a much better hurler then that.
id paly him at 15 and let him take the frees..he just doesnt miss them..
he can also come out the field and roam a bit while playing the 15 role..
he can pick off scores no problem from left or right..

id play mannion at 11 as he just seems more suited to the midfield/40 area..again can score from
anywhere..

for me against westmeath and going forward until whelan and glennon returns..

8.monaghan,
9.cooney
10.eanna burke., deserves a chance and a great scorer..
11.mannion
12.hastings.,work horse and can score plus its time to see what he can do in a championship game..
13.concannon
14.cooney
15.niland.

i thought conor tired after 50 mins last week so i think back in at 14 could suit him and could work
very well with concannon/niland..
he can also hold the ball up and bring others into play.

id stick with the backs but id rest gmac and play jack fitz/cianan fahy at 6 where they both played
for the collages and did very well..
i thought fahy was very nervous the other eve but deserves another start..

we need a whole lot more from our bench who made zero impact last week.
time for kevin cooney to step up a bit more..
young lee and kileen are very very young.,only 18..think its too early for them and they will now
miss the u-20 championship because of this.
i dont think that right as both could really excel at that grade and develop them futher..

thought morrissey and grealish had there best games in a galway jersey and i hope that
continoues and daithi looked back near his very best..

thought murphy in goals had a good game too..

as of now flynn.,whelan.,glennon and shane cooney all injured and youd imagine all 4 would make
the starting team so we are very weakened at the mo so others now have to come in and perform..

In fairness Liam Sheedy (like many pundits such as his fellow Tipp man Nicky English) would not be known for his love of Galway hurling so I think he was being neutral and objective in this case!

Why not try TJ Brennan at centreback where he plays for Clarinbridge instead of GMac and Fintan Burke at fullback for Daithi. Jack Hastings is not up to intercounty level (too slow and not skillful enough) and serious doubts now exist about Cianan Fahy and Evan Niland also.

TJ Brennan did well at fullback in the Fitzgibbon.

I wouldn't pay much attention to Oldtourman, he speaks from both sides of his mouth, his assessment and derision of Galway especially when they lose has been going on for years. I'd have far more respect for a proven IC manager than a jumped-up poster from Limerick.

fine line between offering an opinion and viewed as a troll so i will try tow it. Our best freetaker in the county is that and only that, and there is no room for freetakers only. Zero work rate from said lad. Thought the team looked strong on paper, disappointed with point we dropped, could be crucial though i expect Dublin and KK to beat us and wexford to take a point from 1 of those games

Replying To Galway4ever:  "There's seems to be a lot of negativity and disappointment after yesterdays result which I think is a bit over the top.
Despite being in a winning position late on we still didn't lose and (assuming we beat w'mesth & Laois) we can still get to a Leinster final with two home games against Dublin & KK.
Conditions aside Galway played well enough and should have been out of sight after 20 minutes was it not for the huge number of wides. Even when Wexford came at us in the second half we still responded positively every time and should have saw it out.
Management should have acted earlier on making changes especially in the half forward line where we lacked physicality but I'm sure they will learn from this too.
I'm not someone who likes to blame refs, weather or playing surfaces (given that we play our home games in Pearce Stadium)but conditions weren't great and I suspect we can improve on this performance especially our finishing.
Looking at the other games this weekend it's fair to say Limerick are still the team to beat as they are way ahead of the chasing pack and are practically certainties to close out a 3 in a row…"
Galway4ever! That's an interesting name. Did you create it pre-2017? Galway has 5 now, hasn't it?

Au contraire, baire, I find OTM to be one of the most objective and shrewdest judges of hurling here on HS.

Whereas, while I do try to give your own posts some time of day, it can be quite difficult to get through even one of them, without the words "down in the gutter" coming to mind.

Interesting to see a poster mention 2 possible replacements for daithi Burke and gearoid mc,I have said before I no longer think Galway can play both in same team.however if Henry doesn't make a change who will??i still think Galway will more than likely have enough to get out of leinster after the performance last Saturday..however there will be very close results in games to come and scoring difference might be needed..

Your Oligarch comment is a pure nonsense argument. Are you seriously saying that Limerick never had a a good hurling team before JP came along. Sometime you should check out who were the only county to contest eight Munster Hurling Finals in a row or who won five National Leagues in a row. Also check out the attendance at the 1931 and 1936 All Ireland Finals and you will see that Limerick were the first super Stars of Hurling. In '31 Cork- a county with three times Limericks population- and KK contested the Final. There was just over 30,000 at it, five years later, in the midst of the Economic War over 50,000 thronged into Croke Park,, when Mackey's men swept aside the Black and Amber.
We had a three in a row Under 21 team from '00 to '02 and despite JP being the sponsor we failed to win even one Munstrer Title. So much for your money winning titles argument
Are you seriously telling us that men like Hayes, Finn, Hannon, Lynch, Peter Casey, Hegarty, Flanagan and Gullane etc are the gifted hurlers they are because of JP's generosity or are they just following in the footsteps of many other fine players from their county of the past like the Mackeys, Cloheeseys, Howard, the Hindenburg Half Line etc, among several other great players. In 2020 we had five men lined up for our Full back line- To be sure, to be sure- ar eagla na heagla, mar a dearfa-. Four of them (Condon, Mike Casey, English and Costello) were suddenly ruled out. Displaying huge natural talent Nash and Morrissey seamlessly moved back into specialist positions and in no time both had All Stars won, in those positions. Kyle Hayes by his 21st birthday had played in All Ireland Finals at Full and Centre Forward and wing back and went back up in the forwards last Sunday and caused havoc again. In '14, on an awful day, Hannon took on the KK defence and took them for five points from play at centre forward and now he is not alone recognised as a first class defender, but the probably the best distributor of the ball in the current game. Not to mention Mike Casey who returned to the side after a two year absence and gave a dsiplay, which made it hard to credit he was ever away. ALL TO DO WITH JPS MONEY according to you.
You really should get over that loss in '18.
