Nah didn't think so.!!!!!!. You and another two came on giving it loads, but go running to your own six or seven friends on this site with half a story".
What is with the Cork obsession on numbers or members of other club fora, size of crowds et al. There was almost a capacity crowd at an entertaining LoI game between too great rivals that was live on TV. Yet this has been turned in to something to be scoffed by the rival support. Cork have excellent crowds albeit in a one club city with a much bigger population than any area bar the capital.
It is pointless bothering to post to the cork forum as it isnt a place for much discussion so I wasnt one of the THREE Dundalk fans that did bother. and one of those well I wouldnt consider it much of a post as it wasnt readable although it got plenty of attention. There are significantly more posts on Orielweb by Cork fans up until Friday night.
I am genuinely surprised at how much the result on Friday and generally anything about Dundalk and the football club seems to rankle so much with a significant amount of Cork fans, it seems to run deeper than a sporting rivalry. A large proportion of posts have little to do with football and are general attempts at insult. For league champions there is a serious inferiority complex among the Cork support. It is amusing to see headlines from the Dundalk Democrat posted and a litany of subsequant posts on supposed arrogance of Dundalk based media. I dont recall any posts here calling out Cork based reports on games as it's completely irrelevant to us.
But anyway back to Friday night - as it isnt Caulfield's first dismissal of the season, he pushed the official aside too which is bound to be frowned upon and that he didnt leave the vicinity of the technical area as is required SO he could get more than a single game ban from the sideline. I dont know if it really has that much impact when a manager is banned(?) but I doubt he is the type that takes not being able to berate officials in his stride. He should know better tbh, passion is one thing but he let his players down by losing it and getting himself sent to the stand. His issue was that the winning goal was offside!?! Hoban ran from deep and the ball came off the Cork player so I dont see where he can claim "that the goal might have been offside I dont know" as said in his postmatch interview, he didnt mention his dismissal!
Obviously with a lot of football still to be played there will be more twists and turns but its now in our own hands, and not looking to other teams to close any gap. It was crucial to win imo, assuming the two teams form holds up the prospect of going to Crok needing to win would have been tough if we hadnt gone top on Friday. The focus will be on ourselves to keep getting results and forget about Cork until the game in Turners Cross. That will be some fixture if there is still only the couple of points in it by then!!
