Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Offaly will comprehensively beat Carlow . Carlow can only compete if they play that defensive brand of football. They are playing more attacking now and will struggle at the back without the large numbers behind the ball.They change managers not that very long ago so it will take time to break out ...

Has a Brilliant attitude And wants to get better and learn The way Maughan has treated ( game time When fit) and referred to Cian in interviews is l...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Roscommon game should not have proceeded today under no circumstances...they had one case and Cavan county polluted with Covid... It's history now. Though it seems there are inconsistencies in how different counties deal with the virus. Roscommon are promoted, along with Armagh. Cavan and Fermanagh...

Think you can lose your first game. Lose 2nd and your gone
Thanks for that. Offaly County Board will meet and decide tonight, if the game can be played. I read recently that Offaly are favourites to win the competition, may have to do it the hard way, here's hoping we can field a team.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

the Leitrim manager was looked on with distain almost in some quarters last weekend, and at the time, I thought he spoke the truth...hard to see some of the bigger counties, where cases are rocketting are not affected...I didnt follow the Offaly game last night but seen the starting line up so assu...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

For offaly to be a strong hurling county, a liam mccarthy county, Then whole county needs to produce quality players. Put in the work, up skill players and more importantly, the coaches!!. Better coaches equals better players. Your geographical location will not determine if you are good at hurling...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I detect nearly a sense of reliefthat Leitrim forfeited against Down and may not play next weekend possibly, if that is the level of hope in this Offaly squad we might as well shut up shop now..I didnt see the game yesterday, but listened to R3 commentary..the usual over labouring in possession was...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Cork promoted, Louth relegated, Derry win, Leitrim concede points to Down, due to Covid 19. Important that Offaly win today.

Good win, raises the spirits. The work done in the last few years at both club and development squad levels starting to bear fruit hopefully.
Great result for Offaly hurling yesterday. Well done to all.

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

indeed you are right, didnt we get it woeful hard to escape from there as well... Offaly were relegated to Division 4 in 1993-4. They failed to get promoted in the next two seasons before winning the Division in 1996-97. Wasnt that it, didnt offaly win the league in 1998 from the lower division.......

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Was it las year we robbed Sligo blind I think...yeah we need to kick on and throw a bit of caution to the wind, its all very well be cautious against bigger teams in the championship, but you need to believe you are a tad better than your Div 3 opponents and givei it a go, and try and get out of th...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

The National Football League resumes this weekend, Offaly are away to Tipperary, unless the country goes into Level 4 or Level 5. Tipperary will have a number of players back, who opted out of the panel ahead of the original fixture. Offaly are on 5 points, Tipperary are on 3 points. Any thoughts on...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

By all accounts Offaly made an appeal to Croke Park to allow the 3 finals go ahead this weekend citing the argument that we lost 2 weekends already due to the LOKdown but it fell on deaf ears and it now seems finals will be played in late November/early December. I didn't know that, reasonable requ...

Re: Senior A Football Champioship

I would like to see a greater spread of SF titles in coming years. No fault of Rhode, but it's not ideal to have one team dominate a championship.
