Date Posted: 10 Jul 2010 at 2:30pm
The FORAS Board of Management is delighted to announce that FORAS has completed the purchase of the liquidated effects of Cork City Investments FC Ltd, including all intellectual property. By this purchase, the Cork City Football Club name is returned to its rightful owners, the fans of Cork City FC. The team will continue to play under the name of Cork City FORAS Co-op, as the name of the team cannot be changed mid-season but the club name has returned to Cork City Football Club. the news today affect our crest for the foreseeable future.

Commenting following the purchase, Cork City Chairman John O’Sullivan said: “This is a development with which we are all absolutely delighted. A significant amount of work and care went into the process, and we would like to recognise the contribution of Seán ӒConaill and our solicitor Michael O’Dowd of O’Hanlon O’Dowd Solicitors [www.ohod.ie]. We would also like to express our appreciation to the team at Moore Stephens Nathans; the decision to allow Cork City FC to continue playing at underage level allows us to express with absolute certainty that Cork City FC has never stopped, not for a second.”

Our underage teams who are currently in their off-season will soon kick-off as Supporters’ run teams. A key element of funding for the underage structure is the Club Lotto, which is now available on-line at CorkCityFC.net.

With the Cork City Football Club name now returned to the supporters of the club, we look forward to continuing the excellent start the club has enjoyed to the 2010 season. The club has achieved some excellent results on the field of play, whilst sound structures are being put in place to ensure that the club will continue to live within its means.

We believe that there is a bright and successful future for supporters of Cork City Football Club to look forward to, and we thank our supporters for the steadfast and loyal support we have received in recent times. We are delighted that Cork City Football Club, and its future, is now in the right hands

I went to Aldi today and both the liquidated juice of some grapes.

It has been renamed red wine but I thanks to the logic of Cawkie Johny also own the vine it grew on and the land where that vine is situated.

I'd like to thank everyone associated with the purchase and we look forward to visiting our historic vineyard  on the hills of Valle Central Chile

So the club is called Cork City FORAS Co-op Cork City FC.
 
Amongst yourselves it's Cork City FC but in competing circles it's Cork City FORAS Co-op.

The logo on the new Sligo Rovers jersey is grand, but how its been applied is terrible. The colour doesn't match and it ruins what had the potential to be a top jersey. Id expect more from Umbro. The club shouldn't have let it slide either.

Id be interested to know what johnnycee thinks of how the jersey came out!

Question lads, who does the marketing for City, and is their a specific budget allocation for it.

Just saw that video on FB, fair play. If other clubs put as much effort/initiative into marketing themselves as City I'd imagine we'd see an increase in crowd numbers.

I just saw their promo video. Its a credit to them.
They also do professional press conferences with Caulfield and players before every game and put them up on YouTube.
They are giving it everything to get people in the turnstiles and its paying off with the crowds they are getting.

We had a specific Marketing Team set up about two years ago and they are given a budget to work with to go out and get people through the gates and promote the club. To be honest, the work they've done in less than two years is incredible. For tonight's game for example, they have billboards up around the city, they have adverts at bus stops all over the city center and they've worked with Soho to put up a huge City jersey on the facade of the building which is on Grand Parade, one of Corks busiest streets. 

In the scheme of things, our attendances are really poor for a city of over 200,000, but thats a nationwide issue and hurling will always draw the big crowds in this city at least. Hopefully other clubs can take a leaf out of our book and take the risk to pay for billboards/advert spot etc, we've shown it does work.

Here's hoping. The league has to have a strong Cork team and obviously a good rovers side as well. Does anyone know does the FAI have a team like that? Every club should do what Cork does but it should be backed by an FAI campaign.

5,100 at the game Friday night, with a super performance to boot. If this standard keeps up it'll be regular sellouts by the end of the season. Only looked to be about 1,000 spare seats Friday night.

Is the capacity really 7,500???

Media and club volunteers are included in that figure as everybody gets scanned going into the ground.

Those are great crowds by Cork, the marketing firm they employ is doing stellar work obviously backed up by good results and some star names coming to the club i.e Miller, Bennett, Healy, O`Flynn. It can only be good for the league to have a club attracting those kinds of names. Next thing has to be to get a player some international recognition while playing at the club. That would make them a top destination for players.

     Well done Cork.

There's no marketing firm being paid by the club. It's being run by a voluntary committee of fans who are given a set budget at the start of the year to implement campaigns for the club.

No marketing firm, club set up amarketing committee with a group of lads who go out and get the work done via firms or for free from supporters. Most of the work is being done for free which is fantastic, I helped out for a while in 2013 and 2014 doing the match day posters but only so much free stuff you can do for a club LOL

I think the guy who owns Pog mo Gol does them now for the club.

Richmond Ultra himself did some great work over the years setting up what is now a fantastic setup in colleges and universities selling tickets.

with the large home crowds, I was surprised at how few away fans were there for the Pats game, was at best 50. I'd have thought that you'd get more Dublin based langers coming to the game than that.

I take it you were only counting the lads in the terrace behind the goal, most of our fans were in the stand in the corner. I thought it was good away support. Wasn't at the Bray game so can't comment on that.

they had more than 50. they had the end section of the stand and a good few behind the goal too.

i'd say they had 100-150.

I see, I was in the stand so didn't see them at the other end. Would have been a few other Cork fans in among with the home end too, like I had with me. So 200+ away fans.

That's probably a fair enough estimate. Or 11%+ of the crowd if you prefer Wink

This has been done to death but its nearly impossible for regional teams to maintain any sort of away support. 

Dundalk, Drogheda, Bohs, Pats, Rovers, Bray are all within approx. an hour of each other, even Athlone is only an hour and a half or thereabouts from Dublin. Thats half the teams in the league where I wouldn't have to take time off from work to get to the away game. 

As it stands for myself, Limerick is the only game where I don't have to take time off, its an hour and a half from Cork. Every other away game requires me to book a half day at the least to get to. This week we have had Pats, and will play Drogheda away, I can't get to either. I imagine its the same struggle for Sligo, Limerick, Galway, Derry fans etc.

Langers never have bar a brief period in the mid 00s. Even when league of Ireland matches were on Sunday afternoons they'd have no more than a mini bus up to united park, if even that.

They have valid excuse since switch to Fridays though.

Team looks very banged up at this stage. Needs a refresh in my opinion. Of last nights's squad....

McNulty - keep
Kavanagh - keep
Bennett (Capt) - not top-class anymore - keep as backup
Murray - gone 
Gaynor - keep 
O'Connor -  looks promising
Sheppard - keep 
Beattie - keep 
Miller - not worth the $
O'Sullivan - he's a trier, and a lovely impact player, not sure he should be first choice
Buckley - not at the required level

Subs: 
Dennehy - is his head okay?
Healy - keep for experience/coaching role?
O'Flynn, Kearney - past it
Smith, McSweeney, O'Connoll - too young

Of the team that started last night-
McNulty
Kav
O Connor
Benno
Beattie
Marky.
Would get rid of the rest and all the subs bar Healy as player coach.
That was f**king abysmal last night, this team is far too hot and cold. Caulfield has to go too.

Agree will all that, Holohan is looking like a god at the moment going by the difference in performances when he's in and out of the team.
                   
                  Nults/Smith

Kav          Benno          Dunleavy        O Connor

                     Miller

             Holohan           New Signing

Shep                                           Beattie

                   New Signing/Marky

We're not that far off a decent side. Love Marky but the temptation to hoof it up to him seems too much to resist for the lads. Not many striking options available in this league so a bit of creativity necessary in the transfer market. Poor coaching decisions in big games have been a big part of JC's tenure.

He is still a great option. If only we had eleven with Mark's attitude.
We can't keep Miller if Caulfield stays, he is wasted under him

I hope he does go to be honest, would hate to see the fans really turn on him. He served a purpose but now it's time to push on.

As a matter of interest who would you lads have top of your lists?

To sign An C.? That really depends on budget. I think we should avoid the LOI merry-go-round where possible. I know Beattie has been a good signing, in general though I would avoid it. I would love City to have a strong Cork/Irish core surrounded by ambitious talent from elsewhere.
Johnny has to go now, he was my favourite player growing up and got to know him fairly well over the years. Would hate to see his legendary status tainted

I meant manager but I would feel the same about signing one of the usual candidates. ROD will probably be mentioned again in the off-season, we just don't have the expertise to recruit fellas from abroad right now. I wouldn't be ruling out a decent cup run but our season could easily be over Friday night. If we win Friday I'll be back to my over-optimistic self.

I would like a manager from outside the league and for the same reasons. Would love us to get a good continental coach who wants a 4/5 year project to build his name. More likely to be a familiar face though

John Caulfield will be at the club for a while imo, to be fair the last eleven games were like cup finals knowing if we lost one our campaign is as good as over hopefully we can put a cup run together but I wouldn't hold my breath. I think the average age of the team is too old and the season has caught up on many of our players.

Derry City Football Club will lodge a formal complaint over alleged sectarian abuse towards Kenny Shiels at Friday night's match against Cork City.

It relates to a touchline argument at the end of the match. The Derry manager was http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36293594" rel="nofollow - allegedly called a "sectarian name"  by a member of the Cork backroom team.

Cork chairman Pat Lyons said the club had no knowledge of the incident.

The complaint is to be lodged with the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) by Wednesday.

By that time, the FAI will have had time to read the reports of both the referee and the match delegate who was at Turner's Cross for the Premier Division game.

Derry City chairman Philip O'Doherty met Kenny Shiels on Monday and a decision was made to stand by their manager.

Friday's defeat was Cork City's first in three attempts against the Candystripes.

After the game, Shiels said he was disappointed with the home team's reaction after the final whistle.

"I'm really angry at their lack of hospitality towards me at the end as hosts," Shiels told BBC Sport NI.

"The way they treated me was outrageous but I'll not tolerate that. I'll fight my own corner. I'm not going to be walked over like that.

"I was absolutely disgusted with their behaviour and I'll be making decisions to see what we can do to get something done about it.

"They're not going to call me names down here."

Cork City manager John Caulfield told RTE he was "surprised" by Shiels' allegation.

"I think it was just excitement. He [Shiels] was obviously really disappointed.

"We were excited and probably some of our management were excited.

"At the same time there was nothing in it and I'm surprised with that comment."

Caulfield did say to him that "we played you off the park" im not sure why there was need for that bit of needle as there has always been a fantastic relationship between the two clubs.  The alleged comments are supposed to have come from Cork City Assistant Manager John Cotter. It just dosnt add up for me, i am not saying nothing was said just cant see why it would have been said.
