I vividly remember him talking about it in some video I watched that was released to celebrate the All Ireland win. It had Jimmy Magee commentating on the final for some bizarre reason.


#529

There haven’t been too many all Ireland’s since. Don’t know if such preparation went into each game that year tbf .


#530

That’s a gas video, Magee clearly was commentating after the game was over. At one point he says ‘If I know Storey he’ll score from here’.

With regard to the planning, Griffin even had them paint the large logo onto the training field so they’d be used to it.


#531

i think Liam Dunne mentioned it in his book too.


#532

Ah lads, when you had the likes of Ger Cushe, Liam Dunne and Eamon Scallan on the one team planning on playing with 14 men was hardly a master stroke. It was more like planning for the inevitable.


#533

What ever about Cushe & Dunne, Scallan had very little else to offer.


#534

None of those players had been sent off while playing for Wexford up to that point in time. Ger Cushe never was and Scallan only was that one time.


#535

Truth be told we may have been better off without Scallon that day.


#536

Definitely. I thought Paul Finn had earned the start after his cameo against Galway in the semi-final.


#537

Let it go lads. We won the All Ireland.


#538

Well if it isn’t the Patron Saint of Lets Kill the Craic himself.

I will be in Cusack Park tomorrow evening scouting our potential AI final opponents while half heartedly supporting my adopted county @Bandage @Mac


#543

God speed young man


#544

I can’t go as it’s clashing with Michael Buble (cc @Fagan_ODowd).

Please provide a brief match overview with considered observations on tactics and individual players.

Did you see the team pal? U21 farce has hit us hard.
