He tweaked something recently and is being rested. We are told it's not very serious. Tough on him after all he's been through.

Three games on consecutive weekends must be tough on Powter with the type of injuries he's had. Game last weekend was on an absolute bog of a pitch as well. Hope management know what they're doing

You're grand Ranty, I flatter to deceive. I made Enniskillen last year and not a single Super 8 game. :D

I love his bustling style and honesty but those five yard lashes straight at the keeper don't look good.
We've always had a few lads that need polishing despite being great footballers.

I remember a Keith Ricken comment a few years ago about a certain footballer ( no longer on the panel)
" He'd listen to you all day but he wouldn't hear ya". Not Maguire BTW, but he did play mid field.
No more clues.


I believe Maguire should be capable of a different approach to kicking it straight at the keeper. It'd even be refreshing to see him kick it ten yards wide of the post at this stage, at least he'd have tried something different.

No more clues needed, I think.

Not if conditions continue the way they are here. Bit of a wind, not too high, a few showers.

Ciara might have something to say about that?

Why do 103FM have to take an ad break and then give us the same news as 2pm at 3pm IN THE MIDDLE OF A LIVE BROADCAST OF A MATCH??? Incredible

Because they think there are more important things happening than Cork footballers fighting to get away from the shame of being in Division 3 of the league and away
from the botttom 16 teams in Ireland. Now you and I know that there is nothing more important than this but unfortunately the people who own and run radio stations
just refuse to be reasonable and see things our way. :)
Having said that, 15 points against Down in today's conditions is probably a decent score and at least they won.

Good performance by Cork in difficult conditions, in fairness to them. The forwards generally didn’t allow the Down backs to waltz out with the ball, but made it difficult for them. It was all a bit panicky at the end because in the last eight minutes plus injury time, Cork found themselves reduced to thirteen men, losing one to a second yellow card Sean White) and the second to injury (Kevin Crowley) after McCarthy had foolishly put all his subs on with almost 15 minutes yet to play.

A black card for the referee who ordered play to continue (with a Cork free) while Crowley was down injured at the other side of the pitch and eventually had to go off. Cork were down to 14 players at the time. This was in contrast to him stopping play for players down with minor injuries before that.

There was what appeared to be a new (different) scoreboard at one end with green digits, more readable, but still too small.
