Senior Championship (London)

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

nothing to do with the weather, but this year was probably the worst I have ever seen in terms of quality- interest or competitiveness among the London GAA fraternity.

Starting to play champ in January has definatley taken the shine of the champ- it started in muck and gutters and it finished in muck and gutters.

fair play to KKG as another poster said, good to see different teams winning, but there is still a massive gulf with the top 4 or 6 teams who have big money to spend and the other also rans

not a great game sunday, the goal came at the right time for KKG, their ball retention in the second half was superior to tcg

sadly i dont think there is too much hope for KKG against Ulster opposition, is it time to regrade the senior winners like the hurling and win a few intermediate titles or at least attempt to before stepping back up to senior?

Would have to agree with the above two posters. Only saw a handful of group games but both semi-finals and final and I thought the standard was well down on recent years. Fulham v KKG semi was a shocker - just as bad as last year's games between the two.

Is the All-Ireland club taking place before Christmas again? If KKG do get a heavy beating maybe it's time for London to drop down to intermediate.

there's your answer then, another battering in december. I was there on the bank in 2004/05 when foody was the standout player for them vs. cross in the all Ireland quarter.
