shrewdjudge there seem to be a lot of people not going because it is on in Cork, a lot of the Tipp supporters after the Cork game said it was there last time going to a game in Cork that they had enough of the place, such a pity as it is a great day out in Cork just a pity about the stadium. How do you see the game going ? will be a close enough game id say.

Great to win any Munster final, was a poor game but the conditions were very poor. I feel we have not got going yet and have an awful lot left in the tank yet, the forwards were poor yesterday we try to force the goal chances when taking our point at times would of been a better choice. The backs are starting to work better as a unit that was by far the best outing yesterday for the backs. As I have said from the start of the year after each game we are were we want to be.

I agree with the realtmo. I was very pleased with the backs yesterday. Michael Cahill was back to his best after the Cork match.

People seem to be predicting a KK v Gal/Cork final now, even after tipp winning munster. Good place to be!

I am going to go for a Tipp v Waterford final. Never mind the lads from other counties on here we are hated outside of our own county, nobody wants to see us winning, all you have to do is look at the main page after the Cork game and not a word, yesterday was a Munster final and not a word from any one about the game, why ? because Tipp won, The fact is we have learnt from last year and have got our timing spot on, I know I keep repeating that.

Team to be announced thursday night round 9pm. Do people think their will be any changes to team from the last game?

I have said all year that tipp need to get more physical like in 2010! It will never be more important than this Sunday. I said the only teams that could be kk were Galway n Dublin because their gameplan started with physicality n intensity. Tipp need to start with that to have a chance!

On a potential positive note for tipp I have heard that a prominent young kk player had a serious row with Cody recently (Cody was in d wrong) and was walkin only to be convinced by a selector to stay on! Supposedly all is not well within the camp n they are not going half as well as previous years.

semple I remember when you said that about Galway they may well be in with a shout and I sad you were mad, sorry. As for Sunday Tipp have to win I hate saying this but a loss on Sunday could set us back a few years, I think we will win I am saying it all year its all about the timing this year for Tipp and we have it spot on this time around suppose to be flying it. The only change I could see will be Pa Bourke losing out to Lar or maybe the other way around, its so hard to know. Maybe kk has one last kick in them, for me I think winning last years all Ireland took alot out of kk.

HA tis far from an apology I'm lookin for Realt but thanks all d same...... Pity I wasn't a bit madder n backed Galway! Ya timing is key but it's such a hard thing to get right. For all the world you may look n feel like its all comin together but until you are in d heat of battle you'll never know! Ill take u at your word though that tipp are flyin!

Both teams are at a point that sunday will break a run of AI final appearance n we all know how hard it can be to get back there so it could be a massive turnin point for both counties!

Only way to do it is to meet fire with fire n to quote the great JC Wales "go out n give it your all and you'll be there in the end"! :)

I would only make one change from the munster final for sunday.
Eoin kelly should start instead of Buggy he was flying it the last day against waterford and we need (HAVE TOO) to start well against Kilkenny.
This means starting our strongest possible team.
Buggy would be a great sub to bring on in the last 10-15 minutes

Dan Breen (Tipperary) - Posts: 165 - 14/08/2012 18:00:26    1245369


I don't think Tipp should start with Eoin Kelly, I don't think he has the legs for 70 mins, he would make a better impact sub than buggy O'Mara. I would love to see more speed in the inside forward line. I think it will be a close game. If Tipp, can prevent or keep the goals for kk down then we will be there or there about.

Interesting facts on the game on the Tipp GAA press pack like how we've used 7 less players than we had at this stage last year. Hadnt realised that and if we win on Sunday we will appear in an All Ireland senior hurling final for the fourth year in a row for the first time in the county's history
