Cork Hurlers - Part 2

Christ they are all out today on day leave by the looks of it 😀

Not championing player power at all and well you know it, players should have no say in who their manager is but players must be part of the tactical plan, junior b teams do that for fuck sake and if players see the wood from the trees and management can’t then the players were right to tell them within the confines of their own group to change. Thankfully the management were big enough to take it on board. Kieran Kingston is a great guy and has served us well for a decade now but he cannot be immune to constructive criticism. The stuff they were getting wrong were basics which should be ironed out long long before championship but they weren’t and it almost cost us our season.

You’re just another one stuck on this idea that it’s either long ball or short, hurling is a mix of all sorts of plays, all decided by players in the blink of an eye, unfortunately we believed we could pre programme our inter county hurlers to play a tippy tappy optimise possession game when all it done was cough up possession in dangerous places time and time again, who was responsible for playing that way and why the sudden change of tack midway through the championship? Did they travel down the road to Demascus or were they driven? I will give the management credit when they deserve it and for the last 2 games they have picked the right team and played the right tactics. Before that we were a shambles. So yes it has been a reinvention of the wheel for us

Ah you must be the langer sitting in front of me saying it’s all franks fault when we coughed up the ball time and time again with our backwards and sideways tippy tappy shit.

My club is hurling royalty and I am very proud of that but that doesn’t make me any better than you or anyone else, but if you have a chip on your shoulder over that then that’s your issue not mine

And Frank is long gone, get over yourself ffs
You haven't a notion what went on in the Cork dressing room. You're just a loudmouth know nothing masquerading as an expert on a local forum. Kingston el al don't give a fuck about some no nothing Frank fan prick giving them credit or not.
Show me your Celtic cross you joke.
You declared your loyalty to the destructer of Cork hurling. Why? Because he tickled you and your ilks balls along the way.

No. I don't criticise the players and I understand the game a lot better then you. You can't even read posts.
They still try to play it through the lines, as do most successful teams bar Kilkenny but when a long pass is on or when under pressure they play it long now.
You came out with this after I said that?

Your club isn't hurling royalty by the way. Your past it as a hurling club. You were always wankers but now you're irrelevant wankers. Stick to the football.

Are you seriously championing player power?
The poster who said on here that he supported Frank 100%?

You're some massive fucking hypocrite.
You're that annoying prick behind me whos shouting drive it in long everytime the cornerback has the ball. You're a dinosaur as regards tactics. Just cos your from the Barr's you think youre hurling royalty even though your club is more football now.
Your Ilk and attitude which kept the status quo in power is why we are where we are.

Corks tactics have changed. They still try to play it through the lines, as do most successful teams bar Kilkenny but when a long pass is on or when under pressure they play it long now.
It's not a reinvention of the wheel it's just a tweek.

And your reluctance to give the management team credit when let's face it they have done exactly what's required and got us to the quarter final by evolving the team? Laughable.

👍

Thats it in a nutshell
 
Nope we already know. If Cork win a game it's because the other team are shit. If Cork lose a game it's because Cork are shit. And if somehow Cork win the All Ireland they will have

(a) fell over the line

and

(b) devalued the competition by being beaten twice.
Clare hammered tipp
Tipp are a poor side

Cork did the business v waterford who proved to be extremely fragile as it turns out considering their performance v clare

Sure if we follow that to it’s logical conclusion nobody has won a match yet in the Munster championship this year, because wins against Tipp and Waterford don’t count, and clearly Cork get no credit for beating them, therefore beating Cork doesn’t count either, and Limerick v Clare was a draw so nobody has won a match and everyone is shit.

I’m old enough to remember Deiselona, because I’m more than two weeks old.

Each game should be taken on it’s own merits, we had two games against Limerick and Clare where our tactics were a joke shop, Limerick hammered us on the pitch and the scoreboard while Clare just hammered us on the pitch. The Waterford performance was a complete contrast, we were in their faces and took them on and were well deserved winners and we backed that performance up against Tipperary and pummelled them.

But it is only now the real championship starts, there will be no second or third chances if we get things wrong. We have stumbled on a way of playing that suits us and we have (almost) stumbled on finding our first 15. We are in a good place with a good chance of at least reaching the semi final.

You are the most annoying poster on the entire Sports Thread - You come on here pontificating to all & sundry about Cork Hurling yet supported an incompetent regime that set Cork Hurling back for decades and almost destroyed the top brand in GAA. You have zero credibility but I'm not going to waste anymore time reading your inane posting.
You are polluting this thread and I'm putting you on ignore. Should have done it a long time ago. You are a gormless idiot.
