Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

While Laois ultimately will know shooting 18 wides did cost them (all teams will have wides i know)but Laois know this morning a one third of the 18 would have gotten them over the line (allowing a two over as we had wides too)Referee was finicky too to both sides I thought...one Laois call back in ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

i kept my powder dry til now on here, i did relate to this on the separate Declan Kelly post (which by the way i don't like the personalisation of the matter by allowing naming a post so personal - regulator again surely?)..anyway our chairman (whom i respect by the way) jumped in after the div 3 cl...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Re: Origins of Offaly colours

Not sure about "winning something" to earn the right to wear the Tricolour as opposed to been a draw out of a drum was what i heard/read as a child long before the days of internet to check it (which i havent). I know Clara is supposedly the first/oldest affiliated club in Ireland etc...se...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

we got a win today, made hard work of it in the end...3-25 is serious concession which wont bother some (given there was nothing to play for) but its still alot in a game we didn't need to win...scoring 5-23 is good but the concession rate bothers me abit..Laois obviously went weak against Westmeath...

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

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

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..
