11 out of 11!

So are you Stephen Kenny, or does Stephen Kenny take his cues from you?!
Just a hunch, thought Folan might have started but at the moment its between hoare and cleary for a starting place. He was always going to rest shields, duffy and hoban. Jarvis has played a few games recently so worth keeping him match fit. Presumed Connolly would have more time and space which he did. Then giving Mountney, mceleney, sava and kelly game time. Might have been a different side had we played a premier team.
In Kenny we Trust

Enjoyed last night thought we looked sharper than in recent weeks, could have had a hatful if goals. Mountney the big plus as he looked much sharper and in fine fettle for the run in. Also smart team selection. Big game Tuesday and we are looking good.

Weren't really troubled & job done. Good to see Mountney back & with the run in ahead, he's going to be an important asset to the team. Murray & Kelly, I was impressed with & when Kelly get his match fitness right, he's going to be some addition, great finish for his goal.

It would be nice to get a home draw in the quarter final however, we should be confident no matter who or where we get, we should progress.

Mountney is the kind of player we need in Cork.

have to agree mountney started like a man possesed,winning the ball and cutting threw them.he was very unlucky not to score ,couple of great shots on goal ,was a far better performance than previous weeksand a lot of that was players like mountney looking to push forward with pace ,and less of this sideway football,and good workrate from all the players

Won't happen but i would definitely drop Benson Tues night and play Mountney instead.

Mountney played the Chris Shields role last night, and did it well. The question for me is whether McEleney did enough to displace Benson, leaving McGrath inside. On the other hand, SK does like the idea of holding Connolly in reserve until the opposition left back tires.
