Re: Div 3 South predictions & general comment

Derry are probably at least 10 years ahead of us in terms of development of players. Great to have the enthusiasm about the shane lowry and michael duignan appointments but realistically this is much the same group of players thats only scrapped survival the last couple of years in division 3. It co...

Re: Div 3 South predictions & general comment

Think that was worse than most people could have anticipated. Its alright wanting to play there, but i think we got found out a bit there today. Look better suited to playing in tighter provincial grounds

Re: Div 3 South predictions & general comment

Slight humbling coming up to half time. Some things that are really standing out are the comparative conditioning of the two teams. Derry are playing a very measured game with a clear goal in mind, they could have been in for a number of goals. And just as i write this offaly get a goal😅 Lets try li...

Makes for interesting reading. I didn’t count but it looks like laois westmeath kildare and meath all have more players on fitzgibbon panels this year. Probably highlights the scale of the task facing the county at the minute.

Re: The offaly way.

I think somewhere between bracknagh boy and plain of the herbs approach could be the way to go!

Re: The offaly way.

While I look forward to seeing how the process will play out, I can’t help thinking the flat earthers will be sharpening their pencils and writing their letters. Their wish lists will include: A return to old fashioned ‘catch and kick’ football and an end to handpassing; A return to ‘ground hurling...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

there'll be 2-3 points in it, i agree, and it'll be up in the air till the final whistle. Tullamore tribune should be an interesting read tomorrow to get their take on the weekends game, I wonder is the perception of maughan aired here the same as the one that would be in the wider community. Its pr...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

We will be hot favourites to go down next year. Would it necessarily be the worst thing in the world? We could experiment with a new attacking approach without fear of a team tearing us asunder. Would also be an opportunity to try out new lads in a less pressurised environment without the constant w...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I'd agree with what was said above. Victory over Carlow is not assured and they will be looking forward to this game having seen the form and lack of attacking thrust we are bringing to the table. To a man, we probably have better footballers but you know that Carlow are going to be well drilled and...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I think the reality is with teams like Cavan and Fermanagh coming down, Derry Tipp and Longford staying in with us, and a decent enough looking wicklow team coming up to div 3, its getting harder each year to be the third worst team in the league. Next year could well be the year we go down and then...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Awful fare today, though in fairness GAAGO sorted there stuff out so was able to stream without much hassle! That was about as good as it got sadly. While I can understand the defensive setup while playing against the wind, to score twice in a half of football is really not good enough. I heard Maug...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Paid to watch the game on GAAGO. First half was a complete write off which seemed to be the case across the board; constant buffering and freezing meant it was completely unwatchable. Tuned in to 103 before GAAGO got their act together for the second half. Offaly will be disappointed with that resul...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Any word on the makeup of the Offaly panel? Any new lads in? Thought Aaron Leavy and Ruari Egan were very good during the SFC, would be well worth a look in. Also noted on social media that there are quite a few of our top scorers in the sfc that aren’t on the intercounty panel, should be something ...

What are the prospects for this minor team? Would they be a highly rated crop?
