- Winning the league and cup double in the first season.
4. Can you name three of the most difficult players to manage in the squad?

(but all top class players, who would win any game on their own.)
5. Who would you say are the funny guys in the group?
- Paddy Quinn and Adam Duffy.
6. From the players replies to Q&A's who would you say is the fastest player in the squad?

Best trainer Duff, worst Cathal.
8. Finally, from all the squads you have been involved with, how good do you reckon this current squad is?
