Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Really really good display today. It was as good a championship display as we have had in a few years I think so full credit to all involved. I've been critical (fairly) in the past across earlier parts of the league. We can say Laois were poor but they topped Div 4 comfortably and were expecting to...

Re: U20 footballers 2024

Think the 'give it a go brigade' comment is a bit unfair. People are allowed to say what they think here and to be honest, from watching this evening, I think it is a very fair point. We didnt really go at them when we could have. Countless times in the first half I saw us move the ball out through ...

Re: U20 footballers 2024

In that instance, Kildare would be through because of their superior score diff to both teams. Louth and Offaly would then be the same score diff so it would then go to hierarchy based on scores for (within the games between the 3 teams) between ourselves and Louth. If that doesnt separate it, 'Goal...

Re: U20 footballers 2024

New rules suggest it is score diff among the 3 potential tied teams first.

Re: Offaly Minor Football 2024

Not sure how championship works but well done to lads tonight. Longford was not great but tonight was much better, albeit against a very poor enough Laois outfit who got pasted by Dublin. Longford beat Dublin so if it is two to go through, we need to beat Dublin. If 3 go through, we are already thro...

Re: Offaly Minor Football 2024

They would certainly not be considered a bad crop and football people from outside Offaly would have seen Offaly as contenders for Leinster at minor level this year. Many of them were in equivalent of provincial final last year in Adam Mangan Cup final, losing narrowly to Galway. They shouldn't be l...

Re: Offaly Minor Football 2024

One could reasonably argue that the good underage groups we’ve had (U20 footballers in 2021, minor hurlers in 2022 and U20 hurlers in 2023) were almost exclusively the work of Tommy Byrne’s structures despite Duignan taking all the credit. The first evidence we have of teams coming through under hi...

Re: Offaly Minor Football 2024

Very poor display from minors who were totally outclassed by Longford. With the wind, got off to very poor start. It was curtains from there as Offaly had wind in first half, but went in 6 pts down. Not sure how good Longford really are but Offaly didnt look up to much and struggled all over the fie...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Some observations. Shocking poor first half and LK deservedly led at HT. Probably as poor a half as we played since the Westmeath game. Major issue was the negativity with Offaly having nobody inside opposition half many times in first half. Two super scores from Hyland in first half papered over wa...

As far as I know Anonymous, this is a message board for people to express opinions about their thoughts on Offaly football.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Yea looks close to as strong as we are. Management seems to have finally realised that lots of the older lads are still better than the young lads - for now at least. Good to see Hogan back at 3 where he belongs. Dempsey can give us something going forward from 6 or 7. Dempsey Named at 6 which is i...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Clare have only 4 lads that have ever started championship games and none of those 3 could be considered regulars and one is a goalie. Quilligan is under pressure to stay in goals and Hayes, Seadna Morey and Ian Galvin wouldn't start half the time. Lots of lads there I've never heard of too so they ...
