Mr 'Integrity' Robertson makes some outrageous post match allegations against Brian Gartland (although he did not name him)
I felt it was soft. The first one it’s just a header, a 50-50, they go in shoulder to shoulder, the lad falls over, rolls over like something out of a Hollywood film, The referee produces a yellow card, which is disappointing. I would never ask my players to do that. He’s probably been tricked into it to a degree.


I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

I wasn't that impressed with the interviewer either. Perhaps, I'm being harsh but he really should be challenged on the guff he was spouting. Sligo are a good club and this joker could take them down to the graveyard.

He never mentioned the huge problem in his defence, or possibly the biggest home defeat in years, nor even who they were playing. Incredible interview really, the guy is delusional. Another strange one was mentioning an opposition player by both names. Patrick Mceleney. This guy (Robertson) is in big trouble in my book.

How does a man the size of Gartland manage to dive? It is a rare occurence in this game to see a big CB falling to the ground so easily. Why does he need to do that?

More interesting stuff than a trolling langer is Gavin McLoughlin's piece in the Demo

I'm not trolling. It's a straight up question for any of you.

There is not another CB in the LOI that manges to hit the floor around the penalty box as often as Gartland. How can a man that size fall so easily? No other CB earns pens around the box like him. The amount of set-pieces he gets the hands in the air once the ball is close is unreal. Call me what you want but check him out in the next few games and then look at the behaviour of other CBs compared to him.

Please stop. You are embarrassing yourself. Do Cork not have a forum?

This is what happens when people mess around with the Space Time Continuum. Stuff bleeds through from an alternate universe where John Caulfield is a proper football manager and Gerry is "teeshuck".

So how many times has Gartland won penalties then ? Have you kept count ?
Tomorrow is another day.
