Exactly. That was a good cork team who should have won more all irelands than they did. Some great players on it and collectively they were huge too. They kind of limped over the line against Down but should have won more.

A dry day and Down would have won that one. Crap weather suits big, ignorant fúckers...

I don't think you were ever winning that tbh but you got a lot tighter than you should ever have...

If Cork had a Mickey Harte type manager managing that team they would have won more than just the one.

They should have had 2 or 3. Some very good players on that team. No absolute superstars when you think about it but just a collection of a very high standard of player.

In fairness, O'Connor knows how to beat Mayo and Cork in All Ireland Finals.

In all fairness, Mayo never turned up in 2004, they beat themselves.

As I said he knows how to beat Mayo and Cork in AI Finals.

Beating Mayo in 2004 and 2006 looks good on his CV, but how much of an achievement was it really ?
These two All Ireland’s must go under the ‘solf’ heading.
Beating Cork wasn't much better

The same Cork team that only Kerry could beat in championship for 6 years. The same Cork team who in 2008 and 2009 beat the reigning all Ireland champions. The same Cork team who actually won the all Ireland in 2010. Yeah they were rubbish altogether. Kerry shouldn’t have even celebrated.
Kerry will always beat Cork and Mayo in all Ireland finals. They won't beat Down or Tyrone. It's weird

Cork did come back and win it the next year though Seafóid. Fair's fair.
They did but they have psychological issues in all Ireland finals, Iolar. They tend to calve. Especially against Kerry. And they only won the 1.

From where I'm standing in the County Mayo Seafóid, a stór, winning just the one doesn't sound that bad.

Who are still managerless?
Leitrim...rumours of Ros Andy which may be false
Cork
Kildare... announcement expected this weekend
Longford... previous rumours put to bed
Wicklow?
Waterford...manager left to fulfill his dream if managing Cirk ladies.

Mayowestros...is Horan's term up?
Have Laois or Carlow got managers?
Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

PJs  term with Galway is up. No word if he'll be kept on.

Looks like Keith Ricken will on the Cork senior gig.

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Glen Ryan is the new Kildare manager.
And the backroom team of Kildare blue bloods. This could be the one to get Kildare over the line.

Which line are you referring to?
