Re: Cork u20 football 2019

Excluding the first 12 minutes the best display of brave, intelligent coherent football I have seen from a cork team for a long while. Brilliant heart and desire and game intelligence. Fair play to everyone involved including the huge decision to bring in keith ricken as manager in the first place j...

Re: Cork u20 football 2019

A huge win for cork football, massive turnaround against a very good team. Tactically and game management wise they were all excellent. Amazing what cork footballers can achieve with top class coaching and management.

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

The selection of the half forward line was mind boggling, no physical impact even if Kearney tries and lehane who has been off form for a long time now...……..the melt down with the puckouts should have seen serious change - Dalton, walsh omahony at least 2 should have been sent on to at least allow ...

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

That's a very strong kilkenny half back line, their strongest line up against a hard working wing forwards and lehane who could be great or not so...…….this will be tight, kilkenny will hit everything that moves starting off I was proven to be correct they absolutely dominated a really poor collect...

Re: Cork Footballers 2019

Some huge positives to take from that despite the size of the beating. Three soft goals given away but huge fight all over the pitch and won a lot of 50/50 balls. Some players need another year or two at this level but the super 8s will be a huge help in their development. Bottom line though is tha...

Re: Cork Footballers 2019

As a starting block going forward that will do, especially considering we were 7 points down at one stage. Delighted the team showed the necessary level of heart and determination as befits a proud county. Now I sincerely hope they keep it going and approach the qualifier in the same way...…..its vi...

Re: Cork Footballers 2019

Once again we have suffered a serious amount of injuries in the build upto a match...………...how many times does kevin odriscoll get game time as a wing forward before the penny drops?

Re: Cork Footballers 2019

Anyone believe that we will be competitive and give them a game? Actually make them work for the victory? Is there any sign that there is enough collective grit in the squad to at least make Kerry know they were in a game?
