Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

So disappointing leaving OCP yesterday. Could hardly believe what had happened. Hurled very well throughout albeit a few blips here and there. The need to push on and win games is crucial and never so apparent as yesterday. The ref was poor between the calls for throw balls and then the McManus ‘hit...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Shocking poor performance today really. The few minutes before half time when we went from 7-2 to 11-2 down at halftime killed off the game. If we went in just 5 behind with the breeze for the second half in addition to extra man for first ten minutes, we would have given it a right rattle Ultimatel...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Hard to see either of these games being played tomorrow in Tullamore never mind both. Weather shocking today.

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Hard to disagree with Fairplay's choices. Assuming the games go ahead, with the dire weather forecast. It will be a distraction from the election news.! Derry to beat Tipperary Longford will probably account for Leitrim, in a local derby. Louth at home should beat Offaly, who need to play well for ...

Fair play White Grass. A well informed read and I’d forgotten about a few of them - can’t believe I forgot about Roy Mannion. Man of the match in 1991 league final and class act.

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

As a matter of interest, can anyone on here think of any player that didn’t make themselves available and/or was dropped off any of the successful Offaly teams of recent years. 1994 and 98 hurling 97 Leinster football 1998 league I think possibly James Grennan was working away (possibly London) arou...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I didn’t read any negatively around CJ but actually the opposite in that everyone, myself included, are saying to give him a chance as opposed to taking him off in games.

Hardly negative......

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Although would have gladly settled for a draw for long periods, in the end it was disappointing given the chances we had as a result of a much robust second half performance. Poor first half with the wind behind us saw us going in a point behind at the break and things didn’t look great. Much improv...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

First half performance was as good as I’ve saw from Offaly in years. They really clicked in a 15 minute spell in the first half and kicked unbelievable points. Panda was on fire and well supported by Anton too. Their tackling, support play was brilliant and had a number of turnovers too. Unfortunate...

Re: O’Byrne Cup

anyone know why the goal keeper got a black card at the end? I think he said something to the umpire after they got the last point. The Longford forward was definitely behind the line when he caught the ball. I think that Paddy D and Rigney were also arguing that the forward did an illegal hand pas...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

I thought Birr’s first touch was much better than Rynaghs especially in the first half. Took Rynaghs an awful long time to settle and really it was the introduction of Quirke and Horan that made the difference. Sean Dolan and Ben Conneelly were immense also. For Birr, Sean Ryan and young Watkins (wh...

Re: Senior A Football 2019

Well done Ferbane. Delighted to see them get the victory yesterday. Some fine individual performances and a very young team too.

Best of luck in Leinster.
