While we’re waiting for Sunday’s team to be announced, I’ve stuck up a new poll on the site to keep you all amused. This one is about what we should use the upcoming league campaign for – have at it.
The result of the poll on our ambitions for 2009 showed that, despite Johnno’s best efforts to play down our chances, optimism hasn’t quite died out completely. Indeed, 44% of respondents say we’ll conquer Connacht and do okay in the qualifiers this year while almost a quarter of all voters (24% to be precise) think we’re on the road to Croker in September. The remaining third or so of voters (32%) feel that another year of disappointment, similar to the last two, lies ahead of us. Personally, I think the last option is probably the likeliest but, having said that, there’s no point adopting a negative mindset in January. We could have plenty of time for that kind of crack later in the year but, for now at least, we can dream some delusional dreams about summer glory.
