Paul Galvin Tells Story Which Beautifully Sums Up Colm Cooper's "Genius"

Paul Galvin Tells Story Which Beautifully Sums Up Colm Cooper's "Genius"

As Marty McHugh and now Joe Brolly have found out, few things yield publicity quite like criticism of Colm Cooper. McHugh branded a two-trick pony a couple of years ago, an opinion which provoked great debate until it was magnificently blown away by the Kerry fan who agreed: 'he is if those two tricks are scoring goals and kicking points'.

Joe Brolly decided that he would stand firm against the weight of public opinion a couple of weeks ago by claiming that Cooper, while a great player, lacked that "warrior spirit", citing a lack of scores from the trenches against Tyrone.

Since Brolly made his comments on League Sunday, hoards of righteous believers have defended the Gooch. The latest to do so is Paul Galvin, who appeared on the Ray D'Arcy Show last night. Telling D'Arcy that Cooper was a "genius", Galvin argued that he didn't need that "warrior spirit". In fairness to Galvin, he did his best not to mention Brolly's name, dismissing his criticism as "showbiz stuff".

Galvin then accentuated Cooper's genius through a wonderful story of a rather torpid Gooch ahead of the 2004 All-Ireland final. Watch it below.
