    It's a tough one to predict this year.

    At first glance cork don't look much stronger to me.

    But I've always carried a sneaking suspicion that brian gartland is a bow legged horse in a man costume of a centre half so that theory will get tested this year.

    shamrock look decent but Stephen Bradley football manager could still go either way. His performance at home to cork in one of the televised games last season had the distinction of being as embarrassing as rtes regular programming.

    Logic tells me Derry shouldn't do as well playing home games in buncrana.

    Pats continue the gradual downgrading of their squad.

    Bray look to have some decent players. But does anyone care? Will those players care? We'll see.

    I know nothing about sligo except that Mick Leahy alledgedly starts. Which if true means they're not very good.

    drogheda, galway, harps and bohs are all dog****.

    Apologies I should have been clearer. From the list of current clubs, only Bohs and St Pats have never spent a season in the FD.

    We played 2 seasons in the first, but we weren't relegated. We finished 3rd in 2009. Derry I think were 4th. Bohs and Pats have never played in the first, thats an undeniable fact.

    I think that is correct. That Cork City ceased to exist and a new club with a different name started from scratch in the first division.

    This is in danger of sliding off-topic, so let's wrap it up?

    Correct.

    Correct.

    Correct, but they came close: Bohemians survived the Promotion/Relegation Play-off against Cobh Ramblers (7-0, two legs) in 1998/9.
    They finished bottom nine times in the single division era: 1944/45, 1947/8, 1948/9, 1949/50, 1952/3, 1962/3, 1963/4, 1967/8 & 1968/9.
    Pats never finished lower than second last in that period, but that would have meant (at best) a play-off in the 2-division era: 1953/4, 1962/3 and 1969/70.

    I'm also not sure why a Limerick fan really cares enough to comment. Your fans on here are turning into what Waterford used to be like. It's not a real rivalry.
    Nothing to do with any perceived rivalry or anything but the reason it was claimed its the same club is cos Cork fans are full of s**t tbh.And on the rivalry thing I see far more of Cork fans going on about us thinking it is one than any Limerick fans actually talking about it.Imo Cork FORAS that turned into this version of Cork City are a new club its just that simple no trying for reactions no supposed rivalry its not as if ye being a new club is something I could even slag ye off about I'm a Limerick fan for god sake.

    As for the why a Limerick fan cares enough to comment nonsense,its a forum discussion is kind of the whole point of being on here.

    They have a desperate need to create "rivalries" where they can perceive themselves as the bigger brother.

    The reason for this is the absolutely crippling inferiority complex they possess when it comes to all things Dublin. For a catchment area their size they are utter failures. And consistent failures at that. This is down to their mind set.

    We are also (much bigger, hilarious) failures (albeit with a catchment area a quarter of the size) We have a bit of fun with it. They wake up in cold sweats. Again, it's a state of mind.

    I think their club and the way they run it is absolutely ****in displicable but I don't consider them rivals. I'll be far more concerned about the team's around us.

    Enjoying the semantic battle over relegation here

    a : to assign to a place of insignificance or of oblivion : put out of sight or mind
    b : to assign to an appropriate place or situation on the basis of classification or appraisal
    c : to submit to someone or something for appropriate action : delegate
    d : to transfer (a sports team) to a lower ranking division

    By definitions a, b and d (and 'a' could be written specifically about the First Division) it look like Shels 2006 and the like were relegated.

    Rovers were never relegated (I should point out I was in the UK for a couple of years a decade or so ago) and coverage is very patchy over there.
