Fans Need To Get Behind Fenn Tonight

by February 28, 2020

To say it’s been a horrible start to the season for Cork City would be an understatement, with ten goals
conceded, zero scored and a 6-0 hammering off Shamrock Rovers, the storm clouds will be over the
club and Neale Fenn.

What I hope is that Fenny is not afraid of the storms and is learning how to sail his ship.

There is no doubt he will be stressed, but for me it is time to come out and support him because I feel he
has been put in a situation that is not his fault.

I think he has come into a job that is starting to look like a poisoned chalice and to a club that looks far from stable.

I feel Fenny was sold the dream, but in reality it is starting to looks like a nightmare.

Fenn is a footballing man and an excellent coach, what he needs now is for every Cork City fan to come out and back him, no matter how long it will take.

In 2016 Cork City beat Shamrock Rovers 5-0 in Tallaght, Rovers at that time were going through a sticky patch, the one thing that Rovers did to help them through this bad patch was to have a really strong structure in place and 100% backing by the club and fans for Stephen Bradley.

I know Fenny since 2003, he has always been a family man and to see his wife and kids at Turners Cross, it makes you realise how uncertain football management can be.

This is why the support of the fan’s tonight is hugely important to both Fenny and the players.

They need time to find their feet, as essentially, it is a whole new team and the fans need to remember that Fenny’s job is not going to be a short-term fix, but a long term work in progress.

Looking to Cobh Ramblers, I thought they played well in patches on Saturday against a good Drogheda team but as Cork City had difficult games last week against top sides Rovers and Dundalk, Ramblers now face another one of the promotion favourites UCD.

Hopefully they can get some points on the board and have some luck which both City and Ramblers need.

Cork City 2 – 0 Finn Harps
Derry City 1 – 2 Bohs
Rovers 3 – 1 Dundalk
Shels 0 – 1 St. Pats
UCD 1 – 1 Cobh
