Was at all the games this year and the team has regressed. Even though we won all our league games bar final we look stale and one dimensional. Very disappointing result in the final not one player played to potential. to me the management badly needs freshening up a new voice to re-energise the team. The talent is there its just a matter of performing consistently. Long term I would say this is Michael Ryan's last year irrespective of results and I do believe there are men in our own county capable of managing this team going forward.

We have winnable games there

the toughest two will be down in Kerry and Carlow.

I think ryans heart is in the right place, hes passionate about Westmeath moving forward and he seems like a decent gentleman, I suppose what I had doubts about from the start of the year was when I heard about his backroom team, it kinda didn't look great but I persevered in hope and I still thought promotion could have been achieved. the backroom team last year was undoubtedly better.

We'll be lucky to beat Meath the way things have gone, Laois are in a higher division and so are Carlow now, Antrim have been playing at a higher level all year too, and going own to Kerry is tough, unfortunately we don't have the players, or the younger players aren't getting a chance.

Well done to our camogie team reaching the division 2 league final. I don't follow them but its great to see another step in the right direction for hurling in the county.
