Hands up if you saw this one coming. Earlier this week, it was circulating that Davy Fitz was going to be heading up the road to take the hot-seat with the Tribesmen but then, only 24 hours later, came the bombshell news: the king was to become the new Galway manager.

Henry Shefflin’s appointment caught the hurling landscape by surprise. None of us saw this coming and, to me, it’s on par with Páidí Ó Sé becoming the Westmeath football manager back in 2003.
