Re: Offaly U20s

Couple of lads in this team capable of going on to play at co senior level. It is a young team and a few (even the best of them) are underage again next year. Off top of my head Jack Bryant, Cathal O Donoghue and Aidan Bracken among others have potential to step up in coming years. Surprised the yo...

Re: Election 2020 laois offaly

Historic election result, the old order is changed forever. I didn't see Carol Nolan retaining her seat, well done to her. It is up to SF to form a government, as the party with the highest vote. With all the left parties, she would be well short of a majority, some of the independents are of an FG ...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

If you listen to some of the old timers 'the hurling crowd' (code for Fr Vaughan) lost the 1961 All Ireland by refusing to bring Peter Nolan home from New York; this is usually accompanied by a description of Nolan's outstanding display on Sean Purcell in a Railway Cup game. Now that was one of the...

I see Cian and Jordan are dropped for Sunday. Chilli Donnelly comes in at CF with Conor McNamee coming in at CF and Cathal Mangan moving to WF. The backs remain as they wer.
What is the team for the Louth game?

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Hard to disagree with Fairplay's choices. Assuming the games go ahead, with the dire weather forecast. It will be a distraction from the election news.! Derry to beat Tipperary Longford will probably account for Leitrim, in a local derby. Louth at home should beat Offaly, who need to play well for 7...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Cian Farrell was at the game today, wearing a plaster on his foot. He was injured last week.
Offaly battled back in the second half today, to get a draw. First half was dominated by Longford, who led by 0-6 to 0-5 at the break, playing into the wind.

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Down v Derry. Two of the promotion contenders clash. Down to win Leitrim v Cork. Will be seen as a Cork win, but Leitrim's draw away to Derry will give them confidence on home ground. Cork should win after a battle. Louth v Tipperary. Both looking for a win, Tipperary can get it, but a draw is possi...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I wasn't at the game on Saturday night, but listened to MIds 103 commentary. A friend of mine confirmed that Anton and Ruairi had good games. Bernard Allen's black card probably affected his game in the second half.If Ruairi McNamee, is a free taker, from his underage days, why did he not put up his...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Big game v Longford on Sunday. Offaly need to win the game to have a chance of promotion. Two draws at the weekend, mean this will be a competitive division, so it is vital that Offaly avoid defeat. Offaly require a consistent free taker, who will put over placed balls, we don't have one at present....

Re: Kehoe Cup 2019/2020, NHL 2020

Offaly were very lucky to beat Meath yesterday. Meath dominated the second half, and almost pulled off a deserved shock win, putting a huge dent in Offaly's promotion hopes. What looked like probable promotion, before yesterday, will now be decided in the upcoming games v Kerry away, and Antrim at h...

Re: O’Byrne Cup

Searing, I presume you are referring to the first five minutes of the second half? Offaly had 14 men in their own half, i'd say that was tactical, waiting for Anton to resume after his black card... Jimbob Panda best forward? in fairness he won a lot a ball but his distribution was poor, he possibl...
