Re: U21 FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP 2015

Couldn't agree more with you Blinkers regarding the value of the U21 championship. The U21 championships are a true stepping stone for all under age players aiming to make the senior grade. For many players who don't make their own senior club teams during the year and are overage for minor, the U21...

Re: Killeigh and Killurin

From what I've heard there could be a greater number of lads from north Offaly playing their trade with Edenderry hurlers were it not for the actions of some senior football managements. I've heard stories of players being told point blank that their participation with Edenderry hurlers would seriou...

Re: Offaly v Longford

Yesterday's performance was another classic example of the problems which this current management set up have continued to ignore and fail to correct. In the first half Offaly were the better team for the opening 25 minutes. We defended well keeping our shape and closing down any available space wel...

Re: Offaly v Longford

From looking at the team which has been selected to play against Longford on Sunday its seems as though this wont be a game which will be enjoyed the purists. Starting in the full forward line it looks likely that Niall Mc Namee and Joe Maher will form a two man full forward an will not be asked to ...

Re: 2014 O'Byrne Cup

Offaly football at present needs to be systematically changed from top to bottom. Offaly in terms of footballing had a period of success between the 70s and 80s,with a revival during the late 90s. However,since that past revival in 1997 and 1998 Offaly has been in a constant state of decline. The re...

Re: 2014 O'Byrne Cup

The current Offaly set up seems to deteriorating rapidly on a weekly basis. The first problem which I can see is the caliber of player for which Emmett mc donnell is favouring. It seems that once you are 6 foot plus and can lift weights then you don't need to have an basic skill requirements. Offaly...
