I was disappointed to see Joe Brolly have a needless pop at Gooch again in the Sunday Independent.

There is no doubt that, despite his intelligence, Joe has fallen into the trap of headline addiction. Or else he has an acute case of pundit attention deficit disorder (PADD). Joe is off our television screens now and in need of attention.

He points to games Colm Cooper didn't play well in, sometimes conveniently narrowing it down to second halves, because Gooch happened to be excellent in the first. He leaves out big games Gooch played well in and points to his performances in games his team lost.
