Cork have the problem Galway had for a long time. The difficulty of getting the team up to the right level after a period of mediocrity. If the team doesn't have the right attitude, bringing promising young players into it usually won't change the dynamic . Cork should have recovered from the 2006 final but they still haven't. From 1980 on they were worth around 2 all Irelands per decade but this has dropped to 0 in the 10s.
Corks problem is tippy tappy Hurling and the fact that the club game is gone marsh mellow soft down there
Galways problem for a long time used to be the opposite, talented Galway minors getting beheaded when they stepped up and played in senior club games
