Re: Offaly Senior A Hurling Championship 2024

Jesus lads if Belmont are the closest challengers to Kk then we might as well hand it to them now, no disrespect to them but their time to win one has passed. Paddy Clancy abroad and David Nally injured they simply don’t have the depth to be without two county players. I struggle to see anyone compe...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

What in the name of god is Jack O’Brien doing at these meetings? Maybe someone more experienced like Peter Cunningham would be better ?

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

The county board can back him all they want the reality is when he goes ringing lads in October he won’t get 20 to agree to come in and play and from talking to players that’s a fact, so exactly what a previous poster said if he’s left in charge they are clearly happy to see football decline in the ...

Re: Club Football

They are capable of a performance on any given day but putting them back to back and beating two of the big three is extremely unlikely. They haven’t been in a final since 2015? All of their current players have won next to nothing at underage level too. Anyone backing them to win the championship n...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Absolutely agree. Why is he sitting beside the subs during matches? Why is he the first one on the field at the final whistle? Why did he position himself directly behind the trophy lift? Why is he doing interviews on television? It’s all for the cameras and his own ego because he’s on the way out t...

Re: Club Football

Standard of club football in Offaly has been awful for a long time. Tullamore Ferbane and Rhode should play a tri nations tournament everyone else hasn’t a hope of winning it

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Declan Kelly has to go it’s as simple as that. There is no argument for keeping him. 3 wins from 12 games (including a hammering from down on the way) A Tailteann cup group where 3 teams qualify and we’ve managed to be knocked out after 2 rounds.. that’s nearly hard to do if you tried. -22 score dif...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

4 changes to Offaly team named

Declan Hogan for Cathal Donoghue
Jack O’Brien for Rory Egan
Ruairi Mcnamee for Cathal Flynn
Nigel Dunne for Cian Farrell

Presume that means Peter Cunningham to midfield.

Re: U20 footballers 2024

I said this last week when we won so this isn’t me jumping on after a loss but the way this team has been coached is nothing short of abysmal. No ambition to go forward to risk taking no interest in pressing the ball high after it’s lost the only instruction seems to be turn around and sprint back t...

Re: U20 footballers 2024

That was one of the worst games of football I’ve seen in a long time. Terrible style of play by both teams. It’s shocking the way the game has gone that this is what underage players are being coached to do before they even get to senior level. Serious questions need to be asked of management teams ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Anton out for Cathal Flynn today.

Let’s hope it’s a straight forward afternoon and we aren’t checking the result in Belfast.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

I heard Panda has left the panel due to a toxic atmosphere. He wouldn’t be the type who would be causing trouble but this isn’t a good thing to be hearing before a competitive match has even been played you’d think if he gave the commitment for the full winter training he would at least give it anot...

Re: Club football championship 2023

He had 5 touches of the ball and turned it into 0-3 on a day like that when scores were at a premium that’s fairly impressive, was the only Ferbane player to score in the 2nd half and the top scorer on the field, he lost one ball where a harsh free was given for touching the ball on the ground, not ...

Re: Club football championship 2023

Why wouldn’t they? 6 changes in personnel since the group stages, beat the reigning champions in the semi-final, Tullamore were lucky to get over the line against an edenderry team in disarray. This is a 50/50 game anyone who thinks Tullamore will win easy is living in the clouds

Re: Offaly Senior A Hurling Championship 2023

That’s a false score line lads ballinamere are nowhere near as good as everyone thinks they are. The goal came in the 69th minute on a counter attack and it was a one point game with 5 minutes to go and Belmont played the whole 2nd half with 14 men already minus their two best players Oisin Kelly an...
