Re: Leinster club championships 2017

lads i watch the highlights of the cuala game today for the first time .The Conor Mahon sending off is worth looking at ,Conor seem to tug the Cuala no 3 helmet while he is off his feet battling for the ball,he was looking at the ball and there was no intent in my view ,he had eyes only for the ball...

Re: Daithi and the heartland

Lads maybe SBP should get more games but OCP has much better facilities for players . To suggest that there a direct link to the decline of Offaly hurling to where big game are played is crazy . South Offaly clubs are way behind in Strength and condition ,the think their hurling will win out . Not a...

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

Sunday went wrong for KK , nightmare start ,a ref that was very hard on them and their managment didnt react for 20 minutes ,by that time game was over . S Byrne and his managment have to take some blame , starting G Healion on COC was madness , P Healion was hardly able to walk in the warm up ,yet ...

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

Kiely is a big loss but KK have options B Leonard or O Mahon could play as defensive midfielders both brilliant in the air .KK have the option of playing P Healion on the 40 putting, Gorman at full forward and bringing C Mahon to midfield but i expect P Geraghty to start in midfield and S Leonard to...

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

Top notch from all star, he's a great hurler that in no way should be exploited like that, whatever if it was part of a match report but to have a separate part of the paper target a player in such a horrible tone is too much, I'm not from kk but I'd hope the people of that parish would ask for a p...

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

I shocked at Kevin Corrigan full page article on C Kiely on the Midland tribune . Certainly wont help KK appeal . If im correct that was Kielys second red card as a senior hurler and i still content that it wasnt a red . So he has a decent discipline record at senior level . Why would our local spor...

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

I didnt see a strike ,i think he ran in and pushed him in the lower back .The MLR no8 should have got a red card ,he struck C Slevin with the hurl off the ball and the ref ignored it .Kielys previous red cards didnt help him. i guess KK will appeal it if the have video evidence. He is a huge loss fo...

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

i saw him run in but i didnt see a strike so it was rough play a yellow card and a free.
Even the MLR guys beside me said there was not a strike .
Cuala are a very well drilled team and are current All Ireland champions but I KK will take them in 2 weeks .

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

well done to KK today , great win ,huge workrate , use the ball very well .C Kiely sending off was the only negative .I think it was harsh ,it was a yellow but there no8 made a meal out of it . I've no doubt Diarmuid Byrne stayed down until the card was shown, however how on earth could you give a ...

Re: Daithi and the heartland

Daithi reflects a view that a 8 mile radios around Birr is the heart of Offaly hurling and SBP is home but most people that hold that view are late 50 or older . Most have kids reared. I was at the quarter finals this year ,2games in Birr a crowd of around 1600 turn up,the next day in OCP brought a ...

Re: Offaly hurling manager??

Don't think he/she is Grennairfield. K/K lads where training with the panel last week. Physical assessment and conditioning. Conor Mahon, Dan Currams, Thomas and Peter Gerathy, Cillian Kiely, Conor Slevin and Jordan Quinn. Didn't hear about Molloy. Anyone know the full panel? Is Enda Grogan there ?...

Re: 2018 NHL

Best shot stopper but cannot puck out the ball....New blood in the nets wouldn't be a big issue it could be a good thing. I think your been unfair to him ,his puckouts are his weakness especially when he goes short but he has a great presence in goal ,brilliant shot stopper and one of the fittest g...

Re: Offaly hurling manager??

i see K Martin has already D Molloy C Egan C Mahon and D Currams back on board .Thats a great start ,i wonder is E Murphy back ?
Pity that J Dempsey seems to have opted out ,he a great shot stopper ,a great athlete also who could play outfield . We need everyone .
