I see the thread entitled “Looks like it’s the end of the road for Justin” on GAA website anfearrua.com is now heading or for it’s 40th page. As long roads go that’s Forrest Gump territory.

Glad that things are sorted in Clare, with his friend Ger O’Loughlin starting his “three-year programme” with a weekend win over WIT, Davy Fitzgerald says it’s time for the GAA to take stock. “Trust me, on the management side of things, you will get things wrong, without a shadow of a doubt, but it’s important to have dialogue and thrash things out. We don’t need to go down this road of sacking managers or stupid things like that. We are an amateur game.”

Albeit with professional expectations, and primarily of players.
