The comment from Pace has been taken out of context here. He spoke at length about his ambitions for the club and it was clear it’s important that we retain our PL status. However, when directly asked how vital it was that we stay up, he’s hardly going to start detailing a doomsday scenario. I got t...

We’ve been fielding more or less the same team for 4 years. Brownhill is the only signing in that period who appears guaranteed to start every week and that’s probably only because Cork has missed the last 6 months. With that approach, it was always going to go stale at some stage. I can’t think of ...

How can I renew if they aren’t on sale? And what am I renewing if I’m not allowed in the stadium?
