#226

A left footed free taker often kicks like a golf swing. Never a right footed free taker though.

Martin Carney is fond of the "there was a coming together" of players. Says it so much he could commentate on redtube during the off season.


#228

If they go on to win, it was a psychological master stroke.

If they lose, there was a fight in the dressing room.

If a long range shot goes wide, it's "panic".

A team comes into a final in a good position when they unimpressively win their semi-final. They won't be after getting carried away and will have knuckled down to reach peak performance levels for the final. If they subsequently lose the final then it becomes a case of the semi-final having exposed a lot of flaws that were exploited to the full this time.


#238

Fermanagh never feared Westmeath.

One of the great GAA cliche phrases.
