Philly McMahon interjects: Cork chose the wrong fight, the good influence of football and why managers shouldn’t be on the sidelines
Philly McMahon joins the Irish Independent’s Sinéad Kissane and Conor McKeon for his weekly look at the Football Championship, with Cork v Kerry, the impact of football and the behavior of managers on the sidelines up for discussion on the latest show.
After refusing to play Kerry in Killarney, Cork now meet the Kingdom at Páirc Uí Rinn in the Munster Championship, but have they nudged the bear and ducked into oblivion? They nudged the bear, Philly says.
The impact of football on the Cliffords and on Philly’s own career is also discussed with Philly, emphasizing that spatial awareness is just one of the positive aspects that can be brought to a player’s Gaelic football career, which we have in abundance with David Clifford and see abundance.
And what about the micromanagement of managers on the fringes, will it eventually become a thing of the past? Philly thinks it should be, saying the game should go in the rugby direction where the manager stands in the stands and sees what the players can’t see.
Also, there was mention of that Cody Shefflin handshake and what it could all mean…
