So we are supposed to forget last year happened are we. We beat limerick and a depleted Waterford side and the might of Westmeath and were then beaten by a poor kk side who rolled right over us, and now we have started the year with the same players who are adopting the same attitude. The definition of madness is repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. We have a full back who thinks he is in the mma and waves his hurley around like a sword,we have a player who is there to catch Nashs puckouts...one small problem he cant catch a puckout. We are trying to convert Cooper in to a CB , who exactly is going to fill his role in midfield? .It stinks of desperation. When Limerick upped a gear the other night and just one, they outscored Cork 18 to 6. Its amazing how when we win it it is a good stepping stone but when we get absolutely hammered it is a nothing game. Limerick had nothing to prove I dont think the same could be said of Cork,we are not so successful that can perform like that and not expect there to be some residual effect. Winning creates a habit of winning ,conversely so losing creates a losing habit. 14 years and counting.

Well said. I don't give a shit if we lose, unfortunately it's becoming all too common, what I hate is seeing the same shit tactics as last year which got us nowhere, being implemented again this year from the get go.... and the same lackadaisical attitude on the field. It seems it's harder to get off that panel than stay on it.

Kingston is after confirming that Kearny will not be taking part this year. Huge loss. Always managed to come away with dirty ball and consistently chipped in on the scoreboard.

I said it a few weeks ago that Daniel won't be involved this year. In spite of a few posts on ProC, there was no tension between KK and Kearney. It's a simple case of not having the time to commit for the upcoming season. He hasn't ruled himself out of giving it another bash next year but he has been up front and made it known as early as he could. I've not doubt if he commits next year he will get up to speed with IC hurling in no time at all.
