Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Keeping DK in place with a new backroom team would be akin to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Our stalwarts are all in the twilights of their careers and many likely won’t recommit under DK again. The 2021 U20’s who were meant to be the backbone of the Senior team for the next decade ha...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

What does our championship win against laois account for now? It accounts for the same as our win last year against Meath in the Leinster Championhip (and their subsequent victory in the Taitleann Cup), absolutely nothing. The provincial champisonships are a dead duck and the results in them are me...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Toxic in general, not just your last post, "Conceding heavily all year", plain wrong, post up scores against during the league and Laois. Westies 1-11, Antrim 2-05, Clare 2-10, Wicklow 0-10, Sligo 13, Limerick 10, Down the outlier at 4-12 Of course finish up was poor, but so was getting t...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Ruletheroost is off again when things were getting a little quite in this. Pure toxic stuff posted here in general on this topic. Sure things finished up poorly, but most rationale GAA people are of the mindset that the year wasn't bad and surviving Div 3 and beating Laois were key objectives. as r...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

They were also comparing us to Kilkenny in terms of players on Fitzgibbon teams but in order to do that you have to factor in the fact we’re a dual county and have a decent number of Sigerson players at present too. Also the socio economic factor isn’t really a thing anymore because any player worth...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Yeah that's the point they were trying to get to. Just convenient for cork , that once the u20 was won by Offaly, that Fitzgibbon was a bigger stage and shir hadnt they the numbers playing Fitzgibbon to back it up , 13 of this year's 26 involved with the cork colleges and the poor Offaly lads could...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Yea, could interpret that in diff ways. Possibly a lot of work too in getting homecoming run off successfully. I'm sure there was lot of work involved in that. The footballers have their team secretary and volume of work needed there would be less than in Tullamore today. That said, point taken and...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Watched the game back just now and isn’t it great to have won fair and square. No controversies, no red card that should’ve been, no goal not given etc etc We started decent hitting the first two points then Tipp hit 1-3 of the next 1-4 and we looked in a bit of trouble but in the ten minutes before...

I’d imagine u20 is the same.
Exactly, one of the subs could get “injured” in the warm up and voila…

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Team named. Leigh Kavanagh back in for his brother Alex. I’d expect Diggy Hand to start if fit, for Kavanagh or Egan. I wouldn’t normally be one to read into these things, but the movement of Ravenhill from last on the extended panel list to first could be significant, given the rumours that Leo O’...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Saw that about the petition to get the game changed and agree its embarrassing. The players like the venue and will be happy with a packed Nowlan Park, there will be at least 20k offaly supporters there now I would assume, some tipp will have purchased on Ticketmaster and others through the allocat...
