Laban was excellent last year, literally everything went through him. Big plus for him to be out.

I see Paddy Power have cut our odds from 7/5 down to 1/1.

According to the cork lads last season these guys are supposed to be the greatest team of all time. I am really looking forward to seeing them.

I don't know how this will go.

To be fair, Cork lads generally acknowledge that they didn't perform well in this tie last year.

Nonsense. They were a good side, incredibly well organised and very much limited our chances. Seani didn't get a sniff. They had their homework done and took their chance when it came in each game.

They were also extremely cynical, plenty of diving and slowing the game down very effectively.

That said, even without playing particularly well, we should have had a stonewall penalty in each game which would have changed it a bit.

I think if ye can keep it tight and score a goal, making them attack ye, yeve a great chance. If they score, they will shut up shop and did that very well.

That said its a different looking team, and their 2 best players in our games aren't playing. So who knows.

Apparently he got injured in training yesterday, according to Gavin McLaughlin.
