Tipp U21's

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


i've heard good things bout Sologhead's returning Geoffrey Campbell from Australia. Was a very good underage prospect who was sorely missed by the Sologhead parish. Word on the street is he's expected back for next year's championship, and is supposed to be prominant under a high ball on the edge of the square, an option badly needed for this year's panel. Is even touted to potentially outshine Patrick Maher of Lorrha.

Ah yes, I know Geoffrey or Geoff as most of us call him, I don't really know much about his hurling ability but I'd reckon he'd be a good addition to the footballers. I don't think he'll be back anytime soon though because he only recently started a new job working.

Chris Horan definitly isnt good enough, seen him play a good few senior games this year with mul, he's certinly not up to a county u21 standard.

Wouldnt be gettin 2 carried away about u21s. Last years u21s should have beeen unbeatable with a host of household names and most wit 2 all-ireland minor medals in d bak pockets and all d talk dat comes wit it... Ended up getting a right hammering in Dungarvan by a Waterford side with little or no track record at minor and who were handily enough beaten in the end themselves by Clare in the Munster final.

deiseboy the u21,s of last year over-celedrated their munster senior title and as a result performed badly.

dick martin of clonoulty is about 60 eire og but he is still going strong

These forms seem to be to mullinahone fucused, and i believe chris horan to be a decent player but definitely not up to u21 standard, i think if he gets a full season playing for the juniors it could toughin him up and improve his game no end. on another note sean murphy of ballylobey is playing at a very high standard, great pace and phyisque, may need a bit of coaching on the more thinking side of the game, needs to use his head more, plays wing back or conner back and would be a much better option then horan.
