Re: Offaly hurling manager??

I hope every efford is made to get both those guys back on board .i think the team should be built around them .E Murphy leading the defence from full back. E Murphy was at his peak in the '80s for Beverly Hills Cop when he was quick on his feet and delivered some decent shots. He was carrying a bi...

Re: Hurling Team of Year 2016 & County Panel Prospects

Madness lads James Dempsey is one of the top keepers in the country. its not his fault offaly don't have a target or two to hit his puck outs to. we don't have a Gary Hanniffy or Johnny Dooley or Troy to hit puck outs to during games, the one thing offaly are lacking over the years are hurlers who a...

Re: Offaly Club Hurling C'ship 2016

i think Stephen Quirke was a big lost Rynaghs had no one to get the ball and go at Oularts backs like he does. also Gary Connelly was missed around the middle but as you say oulart were missing Rossiter who is a top player. anyway Rynaghs can learn from this and if they get another crack at it in 20...

Re: Offaly Club Hurling C'ship 2016

mattie Maloney and Niall Wynne will struggle to scrap for ball also and are not top notch forwards. i can also see Emmett Nolan going out centre forward on Aidan Tracey. Ben Connelly is a fine hurler but he will have his work cut out if Hanniffy has a good day, midfield is 50/50 Barry Whelehan is ge...
