Tommy Walsh

(Oldest Posts First)

Massive addition for next year, had serious potential before he left! Mouth watering the thoughts of himself, JOD and gooch all in the forward line for next year and its not a bad supporting cast to go with them either!

Ya it's great that he is coming home, but I wouldn't give him an automatic place on the team, I think he shoud have to work hard and prove him self like the rest of the lads do, It'l take him a while to get used to the round ball again I suppose and football has chaned a bit since he last played.

I agree that Walsh can be just parachuted into this team on reputation. Like Tadgh before him, he will have to work hard to get up to speed and serve his time in the League in order to justify an inclusion in the Championships senior panel.

But boys oh boys, what if he manages to recapture his form of 2008 and 2009, or even become better! What if Gooch comes back in the form of his life. It just might be the little driving force Kerry need to push them on to defend their title.

I'm drooling over the keyboard at the thoughts of a forward unit of Star, Walsh and Jod, with Gooch at number ten behind them and anyone from Declan, Darran, Buckley, Sheehan, Donnacha, the Geaney's and Stephen O'Brien to choose from!!

Barely ten days after an All Ireland and I'm already pyning for the start of the League! 2015 could be another glorious year, we live in hope...

Well I agree, I share you enthusiasm, but ya he cannot just slide back in, he will have to take time to adjust to the "round" ball, but his fitness levels and muscle tone should be savage when consider he has been a professional for the last 4-5 years.

The question is now if he does return to form, and lets be honest he was the most promising young player to emerge in 2009. The big question now is if he was to start where would be fit in, he can play anywhere from 8-15 or anywhere in the centre, lets be honest we are all Ireland champions and already we are adding two players of the calibre of Walsh and Cooper to our panel for the 2015 season.

Agree with the above…. I'm looking forward to the McGrath Cup/league already.

I suppose the beauty of it lads is that there is more compitition , compitition for places is what makes great teams even better, ( look at the Kilkenny hurlers ) we'll see now who has the stomach for battle and who will slip away in to the background , i don't think Fitzy will go for cronyism and every man on the field will be there on merit. And I also share ye'r enthusiasm , it's great :-) .

What a boost,he was man of the match against Meath a few years back,he will take time to get up to speed,but this is like Real Madrid signing a new top player,fantastic player,who can play in a lot of positions,and be top class in all of them..

Any account of Tommy from today's railway cup game bit of a farce really not on the Kerry panel but starting for Munster anyway I suppose this mark rule may suit him for the league

I read that he got a point horse and he wasn't brilliant , he was subbed after 45 mins so I don't know what that means.
