Re: Other GAA

Donal66 thanks for posting the article. Is it not 'common sense' to apply the rules of the game? Looking back on games with rose tainted glasses doesn't an injustice to the super competitors of today's game. They should be protected from illegal elbows

Re: Other GAA

[quote="exile67"]1) One of the three senior players age-wise would be PH. Are you saying he'll throw in the towel? The reason I said senior players (age wise) is because all the players are senior hurlers. They wouldn't necessarily be the 3 oldest players but have given tremendous service ...

Re: Other GAA

Tipperary deserving champions. You could see this happening the second Sheedy was appointed. Good management makes such a difference these days. CCB take note Donal Og said it earlier, the essentials for success are a good goalkeeper(Puck outs), a good free taker and a good manager. I was talking t...

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

I know from a few of the players, before Meyler got the job they asked a number of guys if they would be interested When the players approached the CCB about it the board dismissed them. When Meyler was appointed he asked 2 of them would they work under him and they declined. That was the main reaso...

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

Dreadful news about Christopher Joyce, another long lonely road to recovery for him. He has been criticized by many (including myself) at times but few people doubted his commitment to the Cork jersey. If more skillful players had his desire maybe we wouldn't be where we are now. With younger guys c...

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

I was talking to a guy last night who knows Kieran Kingston well. He was telling me, in one game he thought Bill Cooper wasn't having a good game, he asked Kingston a couple of days afterwards why he didn't take Cooper off? Kingston told him, of all players he wouldn't ever take Bill off unless inju...

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

I agree with O'Grady when he said we didn't play enough through the lines. No matter what others say that is our game. From FB line to HB to MF, to runners in HF line. That is not 'tippy-tappy' hurling, that called possession hurling. What we did yesterday was play two passes and still not get out o...

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

Was the switch of the day Joyce for Meade? Did Meyler seriously think that was going to put the shivers down Cody's spine? Lehane got 45 minutes and I'd say the Kk defense only noticed him when he was taken off. Cork are in a worse state with every passing year of this management. Walsh started 3 ga...

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

I see the bash Bill brigade are on PRoC. He was on Killian Buckley in the first half and Buckley didn't appear for the 2nd and when Cooper had to go off Kk cut through us like a knife through butter. He's not flash like Lehane or Harnedy but he leaves everything on the pitch. For the past few years ...

Re: Cork Hurlers 2019

5 scorers for Cork compared to 13 for Kk. Is Lehane the most over rated player to play for Cork? Shamie isn't far behind him(a leader my bollix). They went missing again today. Kk went in at ht only two pts down after playing 2nd fiddle for 35 mins. Our backs and keeper kept them in the match and in...
