It was in our hands and we handed it to them, Sick. SK doesn’t know how to beat them. We were poor yet they never even tried to play... it seems they know they don’t have to. Fats better than usual against them but sub standard performances everywhere. Heard hundreds screaming at duffy’s short run up. Knew he’d miss as soon as I saw him. I heard someone say Connolly came on.
We threw it away.
We just needed to keep playing. We dropped in so deep after Nicos goal and it was totally unnecessary.
I hope I'm wrong but I think Connolly is going to turn out to be the biggest flop, considering the extraordinary fee paid, of the Kenny era. Maybe he would be better suited to athletics. He doesn't look much like a footballer.
Overall it was an enjoyable game, Rogers made a couple of fabulous saves. Duffy played very well and was our only real threat.
In connollys defence he looked injured after 5 minutes of coming on. He had a serious limp. As did Gannon, Benson, O'Donnell and McMillan. They gave everything but cork looked much fresher towards the end. We played all the football second half, if all the football is passing sideways and backwards. We were set up to sit back from early on. With that approach against a team that has struggled to score since the departure of their star striker is probably a blot on Kenny's conservative notebook.
I thought mountney wouldn't taken a peno before Duffy. I also thought shields would've come on before mountney. A gutting result in the end. We had fantastic support today. We definitely outnumbered cork. Could be wrong.
Overall very disappointing.
