Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Seems that DK is getting the job for another year. Who stays and goes player wise is anyones guess. A strong back room staff is required to take away from DKs horrible man management skills. I hope they are in place before the championship begins and they bring in some players that have decent campa...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Any news coming out of the meetings?
Heard at the players and committee meeting that one senior player present said he won’t be returning if current management remains. Players present at the meeting - Lee Pearson, David D, Roo Mac, Dec H and Jack O Brien.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Why should being from Offaly make a blind bit of difference? In any organisation that takes itself half seriously you hire the person who you believe would be best for the job not who lives nearest the workplace… As far as Martin Murphy goes, my understanding is it was made clear to him in discussi...

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

So far hearing that Nigel Dunne, Declan Hogan and Peter Cunningham have finished with Offaly. Remains to be seen how true that is. Think Nigel was retitiring from intercounty anyway. Declan and Peter a little bit of a surprise.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

So if the problem is conceding heavily all year, well thats your perspective , take out the down game we conceded 76 points in 6 league games, (12.33 per game). Put tailteann in and you are right. In 5 games in the championship and Tailteann cup we conceded 10-82 (22.4 per game) That’s just not goo...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

But London performed alot better than we did In February. I think a lot people can't see the toxicity Which is in this setup which is no good for County ,p...

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 Senior Footballers 2024

The last thread on this got very toxic and was rightly taken down. I hope this thread steers clear of such toxicity and remains fair and balanced. There is no doubt there were issues between players and management. The question is if the player management relatioship is too far gone. Only those inv...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Be interesting to see how this plays out. He’s definitely planning on staying on. Whether he has the players or not is another question. Lots of disgruntled players and not just the older ones.

I would'nt say they are so far off the pace, they almost beat Tullamore last year in the semi final. Probably should have beaten them?

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

How can we go from a kick of a ball away from a Leinster final to finishing rock bottom of the 16 teams in the Tailteann cup in 12 months 😖.. Demoralising

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Was listening to the interviews coming back from Cavan. Micheal Duignan spent most of the interview talking about himself… Leo O Connor spoke about everyone except himself. The Down game was as expected. A second string Down team scoring 2-22 against us didn’t look good. Dyland Hyland didn’t show up...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Will be a small crowd in Breffni Park today.. A couple of things have stood out for me this year as an Offaly GAA fan. The U20 hurlers.. just wow!! Every so often a group comes along whether it be football or hurling that is just exceptional. This is that group now. Talented, skillful, honest and an...
