Cork Footballers

Cork had 4 midfielders in 2010 we have probably one now in Maguire...think Healy was the worst cork senior appointment ever followed by Mc Carthy set us back about 5 or 6 years!!!
People seem to forget that it was the current County Board that gave Ronan McCarthy a 2 year extension.
So they can't remain blameless.
Eventhough most on here didn't agree with this extension and were proved correct.
 
Long read, so i wont copy and paste, but it's a good read. You have to admire the man

Where is Conor Counihan in all of this? How long has he been in his role of Director of Football. I think great work/systems being put in place at under age seeing recent appointments and at Minor/U20 but the Senior team needs everyones attention immediately as a priority imo

Glanmire won a county minor title and none of them players were brought through under Ricken's U-21 management last year. It was like there was a belief that they wouldn't have won it only for Tomas O'Shea, not much system there! O'Shea deserves credit but so do the players and some of them should have been involved, hopefully that will change this year. I believe the County Board or Divisional Boards don't have any system when picking selectors.

Very true - we are generally competitive at underage level, winning a few titles from time to time. Trouble is, the resources we put in at senior level are a fraction of what they do over the border. Kerry essentially operating as a professional outfit with every aspect of training, s&c, diet/nutrition, video analysis, etc catered for.

Cork have come on from days of lads fitting out the gym themselves but still well short of standards in Kerry, Dublin, etc.

None of those Glanmire players warranted selection for an u20 team last year. Daniel hogan and cathal mccarthy were with cork u20 hurlers, James Crowley and Darragh Murray were still u18 last year, so might push on this year or next year onto the team. No one else then really that would be close to that level.
