Clare Gaa Thread mark II


#1972

That was agreed last month. That April for clubs idea is a bit of a cod. Who wants to be playing championship in April? Run off a few rounds of the league is the right idea I would have thought.


#1973

And play no proper matches until August/September?

I’d be happy out getting a couple of matches in in April.


#1974

I thought it was agreed in Limerick already that there’s Championship for every grade both Hurling and Football in April?? Definitely football anyway, thought Hurling too


#1975

I think there is but no actual dates have been released yet afaik.


#1976

It might be beneficial to clubs in one way if they just played away to fuck rather than shelling out for months of training alright. Don’t think it’ll take though.


#1977

Why don’t teams go back training in March if championship is August? Why train in January?


#1978

The arms race.


#1979

Well, I don’t know about Clare for certain but presumably they will be running off league competitions etc earlier in the year anyway. So they’ll still have to go back training. Although, yes, if you know for a fact you won’t be playing Championship in August, January is very fucking early to be going back.

I know that some people are giving out about the fact that you could play a few Championship games in April and then be waiting 4 or 5 months for the next one but to me, that is way more preferable than only starting in August. That’s basically how it runs already.


#1980

The hurling league only finished up here last Saturday (@Joe_Player is very quiet about the result). The football league final was three weeks ago I think. That’s a long season for any club if they’re paying for outside expertise.


#1981

In proper counties like Tipperary every club will have at least three championship games in April


#1982

It has to start in April cos there’s still forty odd teams in it


#1983

28 and what’s the harm? More games for the players and it means that it is impossible for county managers to stop the games being played


#1984

Tis better in fairness. The Tipp lads I work with seem to have plenty more games than we do between divisions and everything else. Fuck this training from January shit.


#1985

The Clare Cup :joy:


#1986

#1987

What way will 2018 go?


#1988

Colm Galvin is ready for the hurling in 2018


#1989

Clare hurling is going to be good in 2018 boys @Raylan @Big_Mick_McCarthy


#1990

You’re changing your mind again?


#1992

Clare are fucked Joe. They will be lucky to win a match in 2018. They will be relegated from the Munster Championship for 2019.
