The rain has been bucketing down since around 2.30pm today in Dublin and it has taken its toll on the All-Ireland final. The first half of the match has featured a lot of handling errors and as always in Croker, a few people losing their footing.
Indeed, it has happened so much that it prompted Southend United striker and Waterford native Noel Hunt to call into question the players' choice of footwear.
All Ireland final, biggest game in many people's eyes and for me it shows the armature side to it! Most players with the wrong footwear on

To be fair to them, the pitch surface has caused problems like this before and perhaps it's a case that they would rather risk losing their footing then their feet blistering up because of wearing studs on the hard ground.
Also, with the longer grass you could be wearing studs and it may not making a bit of difference. However, with all that being said, is Noel Hunt right?
