    Why would we want Ger Cunningham in to replace him just as a matter of interest?

    Word is with kingston that it was the straw that broke the camel's back over the AI final tickets.

    Whats that about the AI Final tickets Dufflebag? I missed that one!


  • Registered Users Posts: 648 ✭✭✭ DuffleBag


    Yerra Kingston looked for a couple of tickets for the AI Final. He got his tickets but had to pay for them. Pearse Murphy has full control over tickets. Even the chairman couldn't get any satisfaction when looking for the minor players to receive a few extra tickets on top of the 4 they received

    Nothing like a shiny new thread...... full of hope for a while at least!

    Getting out before the final bill for the stadium falls due.

    I wonder who he will pick as his successor!


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 28,867 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ShamoBuc


    Don't forget tg4 tonight at 9.30 - 10.40, should be worth a watch.

    Pat Ryan and Diarmuid O Sullivan rule themselves out of the running for the managers job. hopefully they would be open to a selectors role if asked by the new manager, would be a shame to lose all of the previous management team given the year we had

    Not a bad show. Great seeing some clips from Siamsa, Jackson, U2, Collins etc and think Jaysus I was there for most of those and then clips from so many games and think I was there for a lot of them as well. Looking foward to making new memories in the new Páirc.

    Ah it was a good show and well produced I taught. The one thing though is it reinforced the belief that something had to be done with the old Pairc. We were lucky to come away without life's lost Shamo. We were blessed.

    Also some of the "challenges" from the Kerry lads in 76 were a bit meaty shall we say.

    Intermediate replay on tg4 at 1.30


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,498 ✭✭✭ zetecescort


    Cork with the wind lead 0-4 to 0-1 after 15min. a few massive frees from Keeva McCarthy


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 28,867 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ShamoBuc


    Poor half from Cork. 5 v 3 up at ht having played with a very strong wind. Not scoring for about 15 minutes might come back to haunt us. Some very bad free taking as well, might have been better off dropping them in as the wind is a downward cross wind and hard to read.
    3 yellows in a feisty enough first half.
    Playing against the wind might actually help the cork fowards.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,498 ✭✭✭ zetecescort


    very scrappy game. atleast the ref is frustrating both sides


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,498 ✭✭✭ zetecescort


    level after 40min, Cork can't get out of their own half

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,498 ✭✭✭ zetecescort


    Meath 1 up with 10 min left

    edit: 2 up, that could be it in a game where scores are very hard to come by


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,498 ✭✭✭ zetecescort


    Meath 4 up with 2 min left. Cork with 1 point in 2nd half nowhere near enough


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 28,867 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ShamoBuc


    Meath 0-10 v 0-07 Cork
    You can't win a final if you dont score for 25minutes.
    Meath took the lead for the first time with 10 to go and they never looked like losing after that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,498 ✭✭✭ zetecescort


    Big win for Nemo in the SFC semifinal, 5-13 to 0-12 over Duhallow. St Finbarrs v Carbery Rangers just started, Barrs lead 0-3 to 0-1 after 10 min


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,498 ✭✭✭ zetecescort


    Big win for the Barrs too, 3-14 to 0-14


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,571 Laylah Miniature Sphere


    Barrs were very impressive. Was Sherlock involved with the senior set up at all this year? Looks a fine player if he could be a bit less wasteful.

    Knocknagree, Boherbue, Newmarket and Kanturk all had championship games yesterday, putting Duhallow at somewhat of a disadvantage. Still though, 16 points is 16 points.

    The gulf in quality between Intermediate and Senior looked massive having watched both the drawn final and replay. I suppose that's to be understood. Did Cork even score from play ?

    Twice I think, 5 frees. We gad a kot of trouble getting the right ball into our fowards. Driving about 5 or 6 long range frees wide certainly didn't help. Sometimes lofting a few into the square is the better option.
