Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Yea looks close to as strong as we are. Management seems to have finally realised that lots of the older lads are still better than the young lads - for now at least. Good to see Hogan back at 3 where he belongs. Dempsey can give us something going forward from 6 or 7. Dempsey Named at 6 which is i...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Aul lad nonsense talk, why would you carry the ball into the tackle instead of popping it off to a loose player who can have a shot at the target? Tackling is a skill, an art, not bulldozing in and fouling a player! The game is so far on from the 80's and so much better. Getting the ball and hittin...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Posters often disagree with me saying we needed hm while he took a,season or two out, but Kiely gone from CB or general middle area has exposed a fairly timid half back line which in itself affects other close areas of play..today was to be expected???27 point defeat, and "there will be mire un...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Sometimes a losing team official does see things both with their own team and sometimes with the team that beats them..Sligo will certainly show really where we are...I see elsewhere supporters seem to think we are ahead of Laois for example as they are Division 4...take Waterford out of Division 4,...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

No need to panic yet. No need for anyone to get desperate either. There was always a reasonable prospect of Offaly reaching the end of February without any points on the board. That likelihood was considered by Lone Shark on page 3 of this thread late last year. Wicklow and Limerick are in the same...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

totally agree, worth posting up above under these comments were made, the last few posts are just about results in general and relegation etc..nothing in last few posts mentioned any one individual to be fair..

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Offaly shot wides too remember during 1st half, Clancy blazed over when a goal might have been on, we shot a good few wides too when trailing in 2nd half when we were threatening to come back into the game somewhat 3/4 way in, so wides were crucial on both sides but more so on our side as we lost in...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Curious to know how we would have went had Cillian Kiely not gone off injured, he was having a massive game..we did regroup after abit but he was ha in a serious game and was dictating play from his position..I don't think KK had any answers upto time he went off, breeze was a factor i know but ta n...
