Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

I stopped commenting much here as the heckling and bickering is childish and petty at this stage, moderator is abit like the financial regulator during the financial crash, i.e. they are either "asleep at the wheel" or what was really the issue was a political appointment who was happy for...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Poor comment above...I stopped commenting on here over last while, a few posters literally berating anyone who opposes the "all is well" narative launching personal attacks with no one monitoring tone of whats being posted..posters being personally attacked on a constant basis..the post ab...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Dont like these 'challenge' questions, cant see how it effects any other posters what/when what games I attend, I know many go to games and they (privately to me) don't really read games that well, nothing wrong with that, we are all different, I made 2 league games this year, unfortunately(or not) ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Simple logic alright. Also flawed. Beating the teams below you in Division 3 is very much Division 3 form, not that of Division 4. Anyway, the league is over. Life goes on and so does the football. For me it’s simple. The only teams we beat were relegated to Division 4 so we’re showing Division 4 f...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

so Sligo 'hammered' Westmeath (by 6 points?) Yet apparently we could have beaten Westmeath yet lost by 6/7 or something...so like politics when the narrative suits...how anyone can say we would do way better against Div 4 teams is 2 way situation - yes we 'should' be able to account for Div 4 teams ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Not a day or night to be shooting down posters but by God today was painful...do we know our starting 15???maybe we do..but are they going to go out and have a go and, yes, maybe lose bit with their boots on, or go as If we are playing a top tier team trying to contain them, that's light years ahead...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

another season in Division 3 so in 24/25 going on presumptions of promotion and relegation to division 3 above...as said previously Div 3 needs to be our "championship" , not tip toeing around in it talking of winning TC later in year..

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Yea looks close to as strong as we are. Management seems to have finally realised that lots of the older lads are still better than the young lads - for now at least. Good to see Hogan back at 3 where he belongs. Dempsey can give us something going forward from 6 or 7. Dempsey Named at 6 which is i...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Aul lad nonsense talk, why would you carry the ball into the tackle instead of popping it off to a loose player who can have a shot at the target? Tackling is a skill, an art, not bulldozing in and fouling a player! The game is so far on from the 80's and so much better. Getting the ball and hittin...
