Lots of bad choices being made today.
Still up at HT though :)

Yeah, no tactics or anything, of course; just lads taking pot shots from 70m out! ;)

Limerick might have got the moral victory, just about; KK class/experience, with a spot of good luck sees them through. Even if they were lucky, they made their own luck. Not great hurling, given the conditions, but a great game (and some crackin' displays of skill in durty, durty rain!). Gearing up for a great final!

They probably are, but Kilkenny won't give them half the space that Cork did, especially on their puck outs.

I expect the final to be another pitched battle, like the 2011 final and the Cats generally come out on top in those.

two more great games, not sure how Dublin went so far off the boil in that game.

Should be a cracking final, just not sure if Kerry can cope with the running power of Donegal, I hope they can though!

Jaysus, first the Old Man's team get dumped out and then mine (minor and senior!). What a miserable weekend (apart from the quality of the football).

Donegal were worthy winners but they are some dirty and cynical shower. Even with the game won they were still diving trying to get players sent off. Hope Kerry stuff them. Supporters are classless pieces of sh!t too.
