Tompkins has his say on Johnson.

(Oldest Posts First)

Larry Tompkins has given his view on the Seanie Johnston transfer.

Former Rebel County boss Tompkins famously transferred from Kildare to Cork 25 years ago and - as those two counties prepare to collide at Croke Park on Sunday - says he doesn't have enough inside knowledge on Johnston's controversial switch from Cavan to the Lilywhites to give a definitive judgement: He should have ended his views right here. Stirring the proverbial Larry. TOOOOOOOOOO LATE.

Larry talking about staying or not staying with your home club.

Now Larry did not stay with his and did any of the family !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Time he kept the trap shut especially on matters like loyalty to club.

Time for Larry to stop explaining. Is he so naive to believe that the friends who invited him to Cork did not have ambitions for him to play for Cork one day knowing that he had fallen out with Kildare. His case is not as different from Johnstons's as he would like to think.

No, Larry was invited to Cork to play club football by people he met in the states. Easy enough to find work for a carpenter who is a talented footballer especially in Cork. It was inevitable that the call to throw his lot in with the county would come at some stage. I dont have any problen with Larry and am glad it worked out so well for him. I'm not sure he should be talking about club loyalty as I dont think I've ever heard him mention the club he left behind, Eadestown who would love to have him in their ranks for a lot longer.
