Some test going down there to face them on their own patch but Cork are capable of doing it. Some of the best moments for Cork football in the last decade were victories under lights in Tralee, hopefully another one to kick start the new decade. A pity Jack O'Connor won't be around in the tunnel to get put on the flat of his arse tonight all the same.

1-6 to 0-5 for Cork at HT.
Should probably be a bit further ahead. We're the better team so far

Bad night, totally blown out in the 2nd half, cleaned out at midfield, looked leggy and slow in comparison to the animals. Distribution all over the place, A pity as our inside men were starved of ball.

0-17 to 1-9. Kerry won pulling up.

It all went pear shaped in the second half. A huge collapse. Absolutely destroyed at midfield, as complete an ariel display from 1 team you'll ever see.
0-3 in the second half days it all. Take Blake Murphy (starved of possession in the second half and had to go looking out the field for it) and Mark Cronin out of that team and they would have been beaten by way more

Let’s not be too critical. They’re still young fellas. I only got to listen to it on Radio Kerry but between the yerraing it sounded like our kick out strategy played into Kerry’s hands in the second half and we had to work much harder for scores than they did at times. We were only a point down with a few minutes of normal time left and once Kerry got another point or two it was likely they’d pull away at home with Cork having to chase a goal.

Great to hear Radio Kerry maintaining the traditions. When Cork fouled it was obvious and the free couldn’t come fast enough. When Kerry fouled near the end it was good to see them being cynical and slowing it down because other teams do it to them. :lol:

I wouldn't blame keeper O Leary for his booming kick outs as he must have been instructed to do this.
No doubt it cost Cork dearly in the second half but we will have to give Kerry credit for sorting their midfield out by having O Brien
or O Shea helping out Lyne in the second half.
1-9 now where did I see that score before? It is a typical Cork football score or at least it was down the years when losing.
We suffered badly at half forward because O Luasa got a sickener of a belt from No 6 Casey early on and even though he carried on
till HT he was ineffective. Jack Murphy did his best and scored a good point but..............
What you don't see on TV was the constant niggling by the Kerry backs even when the ball is at the other end of the field. This was
clearly a ploy by Sugrue and Co. to upset the opposition. Referees will never blow this and the players know just how far they can go
with the pulling and pushing.
Blake Murphy is a superstar in the making and scored 1-3 with Mark Cronin adding 0-4. That leaves 2 effing points for Jack and Fionn.
Don't know why Ricken didn't use him more in the half forward line in the 2nd half when we couldn't penetrate up front and he wasn't
getting ball inside.
Each and every one of Kerry's forwards scored, with MF Lyne adding another after he got a Yellow card for a late hit on Lawton. Two of
their subs Keane and Quilter also scored.
I couldn't figure out what Phelan was doing as he wandered alone across the defence before being replaced. If it was a tactic by Ricken and Co.
it backfired badly. He's not a corner back anyway.
Beaten by a better team on the night but we could and should have been further in front at HT, even if Kerry missed a sitter of a goal chance.
Their No13 Paul O Shea is a 1st cousin of David Clifford the senior super star and he ain't half bad either. Killed us when he moved outfield
with superb foot passes and smart play.
Was never going to be easy in the lions den, and we were unlucky that O Hanlon had a recent injury and regular keeper was missing for some
other reason.
The future isn't as black as it was a few short years ago, if we can keep O Crónín and O Neill involved with Ricken.
