Niall Toibin tells this story about the 'Moving Statues', and if they still exist anymore. The fella replies that a few still play for Billy Morgans team!
The players simply 'froze' on Sunday, and didn't know what they were doing - nothing to do with the manager!
Give the lads a year to develop into a great team and we will soon forget this year!!
Actually, thinking it through a bit more i don't think i could stick one of them coming in, not with the amount of shite you'd have to put up with from their supporters.
Exactly. Can you imagine the amount of stick we would get if we went back to Killarney to play them with a Kerryman in charge?
Even if we beat them it would take all the pleasure out of it. I can hear it now:"Ah ye had to get one of us to show ye how to play football".
When we had Tompkins and Shay Fahy playing for us it the amount of shite I heard from them was unbelievable.
Anyway I can rest easy 'cause it'll never happen. The County Board would never give the job yo one of them.
If Aghada win the County this year Conor Counihan should be given serious consideration. He's doing a great job with Aghada.
Stevie ur allowed coz you know fuck all about GAA anyway.
Your opinion man i've actually got a fair amount of knowledge of the GAA i just generally stick to what i know most about when i post here.
Maybe if everyone took the same line it might be an idea.
I've always been of the thinking that "it ain't where ya from it's where ya at" and this applies to the team i am most passionate about who's star player is a scouser (Rooney).
I couldn't give a shit if it's a Larry Tompkins bringing success to my county or a scobey scouser (he's matured now) bringing success to my favourite footy team, just because i'm not so narrow-minded and (dare-i-say-it) bigoted, it doesn't mean i have no opinion or right to one. We alll have different opinions on these things and that's simply mine.

nah biy a Kerryman in charge of Cork is a joke of a notion.
Its not sectarian or bigoted it's pride in your county and a county like Cork which has a rich footballing tradition would never accept a move that would be seen by many as an acceptance of second tier status.
