Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

we will do well to see any championship this year, straight knock out possibility, at a push two groups of 4 and play it off, as for the idea of games in OCP, SBP and neutral etc, would add very little spark I honestly think, particulary the way things are panning out, if games become meaningless du...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I was just thinking earlier, we had snow or rain or something one weekend last year and the whole system nearly crashed such was the timeframe of games...no games now for a few weeks at the very earliest, interesting to see how this pans out, here Ime saying go back to the knockout championship for ...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

very hard to see any opposition fretting about what team we put out, they know and most on here know there is little difference in standard, I personally would be like poster above and go for it with a potentially score getting forward division and give a bit of a buzz to the squad, and the subs the...

Cork v Louth, Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Sun 15th March 2pm - Cork...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Great to here some one recognise Doughans performance yesterday, I forgot to mention him in my post, Ciaran Burke also done so well, yeah Doughan for a few stints at CB for me and move Kiely to MF for me..the issue of little or no goals scored against Joe McDonagh opposition has caught my attention ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I couldnt make the game but did listen to it on R3 and jumped between Radio 1 also for updates when R3 switched to Westmeath/Carlow game. Firstly, Offaly hurled very well going by what amost everyone on here that was at the game said and by sounds of game I listened to on R3/RTE radio. Secndly, Antr...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

excellent summary of Sundays game V Wicklow, and a clear view of what might need to be done to beat Antrim on Sunday..with all due respects to all lads on the panel, if we go into the game without Coneely and Kiely, we will be under serious pressure, Neil McManus of Antrim is an excellent hurler and...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

On what grounds can people say we wont beat tipp? Ridiclious statement considering we are around the same level as them. its may be incorrect to state we wont beat tipp, time will tell, it is not rediculous to say we may not, total score of 74 points for Tipp (includes only 3 goals scored) conceded...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Offaly have lost alot of competitive games over the last few years, its not anyone individuals fault, that happens when counties are in decline, one or more good hurlers will come during that valley period and will be to the fore, but the county will never win any competition during that time, if th...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

ah yeah, within reason, if he was having a complete howler he would expect himself to be taken off, but I too would start him against Tipp and give him a good outing depending on how he is going...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I hear where you are comming from relegation wise, not sure whom the teams below us have in their last games but we have Derry and Tipperary, and realistically will struggle to get even a draw against Tipperary, we wont beat Derry, so if the other teams have wins we could be in bother...whatever abo...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I see it in my local club, some, especially some who have been involved at ...
