Shhh, sometimes logic can upset people!!! :wink:


#1553

Welcome to our world Mr Rochford.


#1554

You may be right. But isn’t it strange how so many players seem to knock over coc?


#1555

Mind games - trying to soften up the match ref. I just hope some day we can win an All Ireland on merit rather than because of the ref, the weather or just luck …


#1556

That’s why I initially assumed that O Sullivan was innocent, but maybe not in this instance.


#1557

If the rules were applied properly, Keegan wouldn’t have been on the pitch after he deliberately dragged Connolly down in the run up to our 1st goal.

My heart truly bleeds for him, you play with fire then expect to be burnt.


#1558

As much as I admire Keegan, his black card was no less a black card than Jamsie’s in the drawn game.
Swings and rochabouts, Stephen.


#1559

The same way James horans performance in 2012?


#1561

Twice


#1562

reported that EF staying is set to stay on as Kerry manager for another year, and everyone’s favourite , JOC is U20’s manager for 2 years (mgt team Eamon Whelan/Micheal O’Se/Johnny Crowley replaces Declan O’Sullivan).


#1563

Is that O’Se that played with Vincents in 2008? Surely they must have more alternatives than giving the gig to Jack every time?


#1564

Don’t know - it’s reported only in the Examiner sports pages - not online . Am sure this will get more coverage later today after the hurling AI stuff dies away . Its interesting that JOC is approved first, he wants more finished players in his team if he steps up - will Super 8’s suit them more, where they are starting from ? Wait and see I suppose


#1565

i heard that report on the radio as well about EF and JOC.

all the talk for the past few years is of JOC to basically train up a new team at underage and lead them to senior glory. that must be demoralising for the current set up and team, esp when nobody from Kerry seems to be out there denying it.


#1566

Fully agree , it’s also assuming that JOC will land the AI with them - the other challengers will be improving and developing as well .


#1567

the new PUC may be the galvanising thing for Cork. With their playing population they should be a real football force.


#1568

+1.the langers going hammer &thongs against the keepers is something you miss.


#1569

Well the two former IC players I heard from last week are happy enough with the new manager and team - getting the base / location and resources is important , not sure they want to stay in Fermoy. Think the hurlers use CIT. they really want to get a win over Kerry - fair means or foul


#1570

I think EF has set Kerry back about 4 or 5 years and owes his All-I to JimMcG.


#1571

The longer EF remains Kerry boss the better for Dublin. Great news


#1572

JOC had plenty of enemies in Kerry too .
