Some of the comments on J O’C are like a deja vu here.
Kerry were the keepers of the flame, and if only tyrone played pure football they’d be beaten. Blah blah bla.
Jack didn’t help things with his ‘not in our DNA’ and ‘noveau riche’ remarks, and that he put the 05 defeat to Tyrone down to Kerry having come through a softer route to the final, instead of simply being better.
Kerry fans believed it and I cant recall Jack’s views ever being challenged in the press.
Despite that, i like that he’s so honestly grumpy and a sore loser. It’s what makes him come back to try win. I’m convinced he only came back a second time with Kerry so he could put the record right against MH.
I’d say there’s a part of him would like a third stint as Kerry manager. And he’s a proven winner. I wouldn’t rule him out from coming back.
