    Paddy Barrett signs for 2016. Barrett is a player who has the potential to be terrific in this league.
    He also has the ability to be a total liability. I hope he can fulfill the potential you point out, but it is going to be really difficult for him to get a game ahead of Boyle and Gartland. How does a player develop properly with only a smattering of LSC and EA Sport games?

    You can't spell liability without ability.

    I remember at the start of the season a Galway fan saying how much better he is than Brian Gartland! He's certainly got some good attributes and plenty of potential but is nowhere near Gartland at the moment

    I didnt realise that Barrett has played 20 times this season in all competitions. He has had a few howlers but it seemed like he was trying too hard at times. It was a step up for him too and he adapted. He may not be as solid as Gartland but he could end up being better than Gartland. I think myself that it is the combination of Gartland and Boyle that is solid rather than their individual abilities. Get Gannon to sign an extension and we will be laughing. Madden is the only right-full that could push gannon for a place in our squad imo.

    Not this season's Madden. He is in serious decline.

    Simon Madden is only 27 years old - a tad early to be in serious decline!

    Gartland was not deemed not good enough by Dermot Keely at Shels at the same age as Barrett, and that was in the first division. Barrett is miles ahead of where Gartland was at that age, from what I've seen of Barrett another season of development under the watch of Kenny and he'll become a top player with potential to go to England.

    I'm not doubting that. I just pointed out that right now he is not at Gartlands level, I don't think anyone would disagree with that

    We've too many slow defenders as it is so that's a bit concerning.
