Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Kk really turned it on. 1 10 to 2 points in 2nd half it was actually 1-18 to 1-05 over full second half...Kiely was a mammoth loss..knew the minute he went off..he "got a belt from a loose swing" from John Donnelly...indeed..how lucky for Kilkenny it was described as such..Kiely was on fi...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Offaly doing excellent, credit where its due, we have the breeze in first half, Kiely going off having played so well is a pity/worry...lets hope they stick to what they are doing so well...keep it going lads...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Have to be honest in my opinion on the King/O'Connor face guard sending off, firstly David King grabbed and held O'Connors face guard, the two of them "werent at it" which brushes both into the guilty arena is unfair, O'Connors reaction was more disorientation of where he was as such, they...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

the hurling trend f a few years ago is now slipping into football, our wonder prodigy forward being moved back to defence...we wonder then how the opposition goal keeper can play outfield (as good as)and have a blinder of a game...we need to score more than the opposition to win as we all know..wher...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

And the team that beat us were obliterated in Leinster final, we dodged a bullet there..ok, yes it would be nice to get to a Leinster final but when we do we need to be competitive at least in it..an anihalation would push us back more if that is actually possible..

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

fair points above, thing is Divsion 3 of league is "our championship"..are we really going to make let alone win a Leinster final???? Or a tailtean cup???the ground will surely get firmer and dry out for sure, but it will for the other teams too, and some having beaten us already won't lie...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

i would never redicule any player..they are individuals at the end of the day..our woes are a combination of a weak club structure (which some think is not)and management during games as opposed to coaching at inter county level (surely we are doing 80/85% of what other counties (top) are doing..if ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

i think our problems are beyond whos managing us, Kelly deserved a go at it to be fair, football in the county is now like slot of the other weaker counties, we can talk it up and say its very competitive, it is but at what standard...MT every week articles about schools football in Leinster finals ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Lordy me, what a finish, threw it away in every sense, we even got a penalty to win it and missed that..really hard to know where we are at now to be honest, take all the good bits out of that all you want, we lost to a Clare team regrouping after losing Com Collins and a host of their top players.....

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

I think like 80s, Division 2 (or 1b in this case top teams should be in league propper quarter finals..playing out these Divisional finals all nice and pretty but at end of the day all are forgotten about quickly outside their own counties..teams from lower divisions have won out leagues in the past..

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Ill call for calm here, ffs we were competitive in our first two games, taking a point after a good performance (13 men or not Wexford with 14 men drew with Kilkenny the week before too no one is mentioning)...going to games or not is drilling too far in ways, some here seem to be able to go to all ...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

ide be a critic here but i have to say I am impressed with what I have seen over all last two games...tests against Kilkenny and Clare??...of course they will be tests and serious tests too, but pre league the last two games looked very ominous before we ever got to Kilkenny, Clare or Cork, and now ...
