Replying To theboys:  "Thanks be to god we have a proper championship game ahead of us now to actually see where we are IV still no idea what our level is and the more I see these Munster game I still think we are miles away to be honest,for the first time we now play a Kilkenny team that has to win to get to Leinster final like ourselves!!! Kilkenny usually have there work done by now and already in the final!!! Il judge Wexford after this game,a proper game!!! Think Carlow are terrible,they played half a Kilkenny team who hit uncharacteristically 17 mostly terrible wides and had a man sent off In what I'd say was a really off day!!! I hope Kilkenny have everyone available too,I think they are a good yardstick!!"
What an arrogant statement. Carlow got the draw they deserved against Kilkenny & could easily have won it. Yes we were very poor yesterday but that doesn't surprise me as we had put in 3 very good performances up to yesterday & we eventually ran out of gas. We don't have anything like the numbers you guys have & we are seriously punching above our weight.
Well deserved win for ye yesterday but don't knock Carlow because we dare to stick our heads above the table. The more competitive teams in the Championship the better & hopefully we can stay there & ye will have to play another terrible team again next year. By the way I hope Kilkenny have a full team out next week too.....

That's not correct. We'd finish third on score difference in that scenario unless we got absolutely hockeyed which seems unlikely

Incidentally I just checked the odds and Kilkenny are hot favourites. Bookies obviously haven't followed championship hurling this year or for the last seven years. I'm going to put a few grand on us at 5/2. Free money.

To be fair I think the term proper championship game was that next week is almost knock out.

Carlow weren't good yesterday but I was genuinely more afraid of you than Kilkenny.

I hope they've a full team out too. Matt O'hanlon is the only player in the country who consistently dominates TJ Reid.

Replying To OpenStandWall:  "Tickets bought this morning, really hope we bring a big support."
I expect and hope for a huge Wexford support on Sunday. Its going to be extremely difficult and tight and a vocal following for us could be the 1 point difference you never know

Jesus I like your optimism but Sunday is 50/50 I wouldnt be putting that kind of money on us at all

That post is not reflective of what any Wexford supporters I know think. Anyone I was talking to was seriously worried about the game against you. Think it was pretty much their 1st team you were playing less Cody, Deegan and Mullan anyway.

How so? Kilkenny would have to beat us by 9 more points than Galway beat Dublin by in that scenario. The most likely way if we don't get 3rd is if we lose and Galway and Dublin draw.

Replying To Afinestick96:  "Surprised our match is not live on Sunday given the history and rivalry between us and Kilkenny and whats at stake. Hopefully the fact its only on GAAGO will sway more Wexford supporters to go support the lads rather than paying 12 euro to watch it online"
For us in the UK GAAGO been a Godsend, only way I can watch the Wexford games.

No. Kilkenny can't finish lower than 3rd.

Ah I'm joking of course, my point is it's totally irrational for them to be raging hot favourites.

They're Kilkenny I know, but they haven't been great this year.

I don't think Carlow are terrible.
Have improved lots but came up against a Wexford team who were never going to allow what happened in Antrim.
I really hope carlow get the win in antrim but it will be a big ask.
But beat of luck and we'll done on a huge result v Kilkenny

If Wexford turn up ready and focused I give us a chance bit if we are off at all we will lose.
I hope we get a big crowd from Wexford.
I reckon we will

I'm hoping we get over 10k to support the lads . We have a great chance of getting to a Leinster final and as I said in previous post a vocal support could be that 1 point difference in the end

He's talking about 22. You were gone if Dublin and Galway had drawn or if Dublin had won.

I know they can't this year I was on about 22. The narrative is Wexford can't do it when Kilkenny have something to play for which is completely false.
