Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

Re: Offaly vs Louth 2021 Leinster Football Championship

"I think he should take a stand and let Paddy D run back to goal.." Why would he do that , free taking is sorted out pre match at u14 level, if Paddy's on them , then he's on them. I don't agree with it and agree that all things being equal, Cian F is as reliable a freetaker as Paddy....bu...

Re: Minor Football

Hard luck to the minors last night, tight game, lads will learn from mistakes or decisions made under pressure. Great effort from both sides in the heat with limited game time behind them recently. Few things cost us and they can only learn from the experience, well done to the players and managemen...

Re: Offaly vs Louth 2021 Leinster Football Championship

Why don't we get Cian Farrell to come back and take the kick outs when going long , and leave Paddy with the frees? :roll: :roll:

Re: Minor Football

I think there's a Leinster final the Wed in Mullingar? And another one at the weekend in Portlaoise? Good luck to both the hurlers and the footballers. There has been a great effort put in by both management teams to get both squads right for the finals, a, and either way they have had a great oppor...

Re: Offaly v Kildare Leinster SFC 1/4 Final 2021

Assuming that Offaly can recover well and no injuries, then I fancy us to give this a good rattle in that we could pose some trouble to them up front. Louth game was a tough one and the mindset would have been different and as was seen in the last few minutes of normal time, there was a fear of losi...

Re: Offaly vs Louth 2021 Leinster Football Championship

So hard to know with this bunch have they developed the mental strength to say "right, fuck it, we looked for a game in Croker, got it and fluffed it, but its done now and what did we learn individually and collectively, and how am I going to get over it?" Physically they may be ok if they...

Re: Div 3 South predictions & general comment

"it makes me wonder if Dublin and Kerry and Mayo had to play all their big games outside Croke Park how good would they be..yes they are good sides no doubt" Dublin: They operate at faster pace, more power, awareness and peripheral vision, make the right decisions more often . Now whether ...

Re: Offaly vs Louth 2021 Leinster Football Championship

Agree with BNM man, and I did feel as I said that we would be up against it. But aside from the players there were a few supporters that got the trip to Croker again so they will have had that experience. The strong angles of running that Derry brought to the game and our inability to turn them was ...

Re: Div 3 South predictions & general comment

I think Saturday could be a step too far. I am interested to see how we defend in Croke park as it just seems to offer up more space. If we can build on defensive improvements in recent games I would be happy that we can compete but this will be a challenge, Derry will have strong runners and also d...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

I saw no one on here confident about us getting promotion from the league, so its credit to the management and the players. Lot of new players with very little group preparation behind them hit the ground running and dispensed with the ground hurling! Well done to the team and management and especia...

Re: Offaly v Fermanagh

No room for passengers in this one, it may be dour stuff. Listening to Tomas O Se this morning and he was correct in his analysis, have Offaly the cuteness to deal with the defensive set up that Fermanagh will bring? Patience, don't get turned over to easily and being able to stop their runners. Whi...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

Super performances, great atitude, and workrate and you can only beat whats in front of you. Huge step up to come, but keep the feet on the ground and get the job done now to get out of the CRINGE competition, and get up a level. Well done to this young group of players and good men like Clancy, Con...
