Re: Joe McDonagh cup

with the scoring difference possibly in play, OY has zero chance of getting to a final, the name of the game for OY is to avoid relegation. from a LS perspective, I think we will lose to Kerry, we have an awful record down there and I also think Kerry will give ye a trimming. This coming from the s...

Re: Senior A Football 2018

Well done to Rhode. By a country mile, the best team in Offaly for the past several years. For Ferbane it is back to the drawing board. There is no point blaming injuries, tactics, the referee, a bad day at the office. Sunday's game showed a gulf in class between the sides. If Ferbane hope to close ...

Also David Nally is an excellent hurler and a great prospect for the future.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers Championship Thread

Lads, I don't think anyone is arguing that Joe McDonagh is not our level. The question is will it do any good for Offaly hurling or will it sink it even further. I'm in agreement with POTH that it will be damaging to hurling in Offaly. But remaining in the Leinster championship, while the current fo...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers Championship Thread

The round robin structure is s proving to be a disaster for Offaly. There is not enough time between games to recover physically or to mentally get the heads right for the next weekend. That in itself doesn't fully account for the gulf in class last night. Offaly look to be a long way behind and the...

Re: Newspaper Articles

Excellent article in my opinion. It highlights two key issues - the failure of Offaly County Board to make adequate resources available for the preparation of county teams and it's treatment of county managers. Several senior football managers, including Pat Flanagan and Paul O'Kelly, have been trea...

Re: We Are Offaly

I am with you all the way on this bracknaghboy. It is incredible that a player has to come out to refute a story spread in the media by a member of the County Board. There was no need for this individual to go running to every media outlet he could to spread rumours and half truths. What was gained ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

I agree totally, and 'Super' didn't help matters with his tweet. This should be sorted out internally, if possible, and not blabbed all over the media.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

First of all I agree with Kingscounty when he says that it may be a blessing that Offaly lost yesterday. That may sound defeatist and negative but anyone who watched Offaly's performance yesterday could only cringe at the prospect of having to face Dublin in the next round. Playing Dublin with a ful...

Totally with you on this one, Lone Shark. It's ridiculous that people are making an issue out of this. Have ye nothing else to be bothered about?

Re: 2018 NFL

Well done to players and management for retaining Division 3 status. There was obviously a lot of hard preparation put in after the Sligo game in order to achieve that performance and result on Sunday. Wallace has said he is open to adding to the panel. I wonder will any of the lads who are travelli...

Re: 2018 NFL

Question. Would Offaly have beaten Sligo yesterday if Pat Flanagan was still manager? Please discuss. I have little doubt that if Pat Flanagan was still in charge we would have beaten Sligo. Remember, we beat them away last year. Yes there were deficiencies last year, particularly in the second hal...

No sign of suckindiesel. It's one thing talking crap on your own forum. It's quite another coming into an opposition forum and talking it.

Re: 2018 NFL

I totally agree SD it was crazy leaving it that late to call off the match. Surely the pitch was unplayable at 8.30 this morning and there was no prospect of any great improvement in the weather. How come the games at Sligo, Iniskeen and Cavan - all less northerly venues - could be postponed with re...
