Welcoming Colm Galvin back a double standard by Davy Fitzgerald - Colm Parkinson

On one hand it's great to see Colm Galvin back playing for Clare this summer. He's a real class act and a player that makes the Banner tick. Jamesie O'Connor has spoken on the show about his telepathic understanding with another legend in the making, Tony Kelly, so there is no doubt Clare will be a stronger force with him home.

What disappoints me is the shocking double standards shown by manager Davy Fitzgerald. When Nicky O'Connell and Davy O'Halloran left the Clare panel because, in O'Halloran's words, they felt 'humiliated' by punishments handed out to them, Davy responded by saying "we are 100pc certain that we do things by the book and there is a set of rules there and that is the way it is and they were implemented".

The 'set of rules' obviously doesn't apply to his best midfielder leaving the squad to go over playing and living the good life in America.
