    Dan Casey and Gary Comerford are a pair of smart signings. Casey is likely to be an automatic choice at centre back and Comerford should challenge Shane Griffin for left back

    I think if I was a player in his shoes I'd definitely pick the US option over say league 1 in uk. Playing at the second tier on the US is not bad at all, decent climate too if you join one of the sides in the southern states. No brainier to me, best of luck to him, decent player.

    Beatties 6wytier goodbye has City fans in bits. He's a good footballer, but he's 10 times the leager/character you want around. Would run through a wall for you without a second thought. He's become a legend down here, and will be sorely missed.

    Caulfield today referred to Comerford as playing left midfield 😳

    Positions mean nothing to Caulfield. He likes players that can play roughly 6 positions. Just ask Jimmy Keohane. He thought he was a central midfielder. He's played centre mid, right back, right wing, no. 10 and even up front that one really weird time.

    Bolger was basically on a two-year from last year and Bradley clearly had no intention of letting him go.

    Is Griffin that bad? I know he made the mistake in the cup final but anytime I've seen him (which obviously isn't an awful lot) he looks very tidy and has the physicality to mix it with any attacking player. I'd say he's one of the best full-backs in the league but apparently people can't say that anymore!

    Griffin is an absolute liability! He's be grand as a winger but he can't defend.

    He lost possession on the half way line after getting a lazy pass back from the golden boy Sadlier. Griffin has been unfairly vilified by Cork fans, who seem to ignore that no one followed McEleney's run and McCormacks inability to watch what was going on around him.

    Nonsense. We were attacking and Griffin lost the ball, again. He did it over and over and has done it all season long. He has left us in those positions all season long. Hence the frustration.

    He wasn't the only one at fault, the run not being tracked was criminal, but to try to blame Sadlier is rubbish.

    Teams have targeted Griffin all season, hes an obvious weak link defensively and incredibly frustrating to watch every week.

    Granted Griffin did lose the ball in the lead up to the winning goal, but I would also agree McCormack was far too slow to react to McEleney’s run, and Sadlier can’t be blameless either as he almost walked back after giving the pass in the first place.

    As for Griffin, harsh to label all the blame on him, didn’t he clear off the line a few minutes after the penalty from Gartland’s header, and that was going in too.

    I see Gary Shaw has joined pats.
    A thoroughly nice fella and a honest hard-working player who always gave his best when playing for Rovers.
    I didn't work out for him at Rovers last year but I'd like to think there would be no negative feeling towards him when we play pats next year.

    Nobody has labeled all the blame on Griff, but the difference is Griff does this sort of thing every game. Its natural for fand to get frustrated at it.

    Apart from the lazy pass bit, this is bang on the money. Morrisey was having his best game of the season before he went off - we were exposed in the aftermath.

    Cork are being busy with a few signings already, I think I saw another last night, a local lad getting a pro contract. I think they made a flurry of signings around the same time last year, at that point when they got Barry and McNamee in, I thought they would both have a major impact in their season. The former hardly featured and the latter must have thought it was just a waste of his time going down.

    Genuine question for Cork fans, why didn’t McNamee have an impact, I know Barry made a good few mistakes early season and fell off the radar, but he was a quality player going down, and I was thinking of him with Dundalk. However McNamee should really have done better, was it a case of JC not wanting to change his MF set up or playing him out of position or just a case of it didn’t work out for a variety of reasons which ended up with that reported falling out around Sept?
