Watched several games of both codes over the weekend. The winning teams ALWAYS had several men in mtion whenever the ball was in the hands of the playmaker. In Monas', Witt's and Dunley's defence, this did not happen with us on on Friday night. We're creating no doubt in the minds of the opposition. An observation on our current malaise: The INTENSITY in attack and defence has dropped right off. We have conceded our 2004 average of 30 points per game over the last 10 games I believe. We are not committing several men to the tackle and dominating. In attack everyone is standing around waiting for someone else to do it. Some further observations: 1. Des' task is fairly simple this week - he has to kick some major arse and re-insill some intensity and passion back into our game. This coasting nonsense must STOP, even if it takes some sackings to achieve it. 2. On the field it is the CAPTAIN'S JOB to ensure that noone is slacking off and that intenstiy is maintained. It is the playmaker's task to direct the runners and make sure there are several men in motion. Monaghan does not seem to be doing this.
