Doubt it's on TV unless there's a stream. FAI did that a couple of years ago...

It's always nice to put one over on Caulfield's crew but already the 'rivalry' feels like a thing of the past and the season hasn't started yet! Now that the Sligo game is on the box that feels a lot more real all of a sudden.

Performance matters far more than the result. Create plenty of chances, don't cough up any stupid goals and I'll be happy, even if we lose to a freaky 40 yard deflection or something.

I would like Performance and Result please.

Cork will retain the core characteristics that have worked well for them over recent years and will be difficult to beat. Another win in Turner's Cross would help with making a psychological impact and would further soften the cough of their .most objectionable online fans

I suspect that there are more places up for grabs than at any point in recent seasons


Predicted Line-up

Rogers
Gannon | Gartland | Hoare | Massey
Shields | Murray
D Kelly | McEleney | Duffy
Hoban

I think Jarvis might start ahead of Massey. It would also be good to finally see Chevdukas make an appearance, has there been an update on his injury anywhere? I'm really looking forward to getting the season going. I think that this could be the strongest and most balanced squad yet with no obvious weak links in the 1st 11 or on the bench! I'm not so bothered about Saturdays ultimate result really but it would be good to force Cork to question themselves if we beat them well. Having to trim their squad and lose some of their better players, the probable improvement of other teams, the wobble of faith in Caulfield, question marks on having a goal scorer all could add up to give a pretty big dent to their confidence if they are beaten well. It is possible though that Caulfield be more effective with a smaller squad, less resources and more limited players as he can build that siege mentality and play defensively without being booed off the pitch. I'm sure Tigger and co will be dropping in any day soon lol

According to James Rogers on Monday:

Karolis Chvedukas is back on the pitch in the past week and "can start getting integrated over the next week or so". No date given for when he is expected to be in contention

Jamie McGrath has had an injection and is "a couple of weeks away"

Jordan Flores - is a week to 10 days behind and the "target is the Sligo game"

"Team news

Jamie McGrath is out with a groin problem and new signing Jordan Flores is working up to fitness so won’t play a part. A number of players will be assessed ahead of the game and no risks will be taken with the new season just a week away"

Not worried about the result just hope we put in a good shift and performance and hit the ground running next week.

Skorlive.com might have it, but not sure you can check until around KO.

Ps. Nice new graphics on this forum, good work by the guys who run it.

Rogers
Gannon
Gartland
Hoare
Shields
Duffy
Mountney
Hoban
McEleney
Massey
Benson

The same first 11 that started the cup final. Good strong side, although I thought Dan Kelly might have got the shout.

HT

2 up and hit the post. All us on a bobbly pitch. Even gave them the ball for 10 minutes to see what they had. They had nothing.

Everyone doing well although McEleney is a bit of a passenger. Mountney well involved but unfortunately lacks the quality. Gannon and Shields standing out."

FT

1-2. Good free kick that Rogers should have saved now I've seen the clip. We held them at arm’s length second half while they ran about a bit more and slashed it in the general direction of the goal a few times. We looked to be trying patterns of play rather than just going for the jugular. It even looked like we let them have the ball to see how good we were at defending and breaking.

McEleney unsurprisingly subbed after contributing very little. Rogers a bit ropey under pressure and Mountney was poor second half - second to a lot of loose balls and didn't seem to know what way to run off Gannon. Cork fans were bigging up Daire O'Connor afterwards and he was their best player certainly, but if that’s all they’ve got...

Murray didn’t do a lot when he came on. Almost seemed to be sent on to watch and learn his teammates movements. Gannon, Massey, Shields and Garts - the old reliables - were the standout performers.

Favourite moment was Hoare doing a Canniggia Italia '90 impression rampaging straight up the middle and two Cork players booked for trying to scythe him down!
