Re: Leinster club championships 2017

POTH i agree KK didnt seem to be up for yesterdays match .C Kiely scored a wonder point and gave a defence splitting pass to D Currams for the second goal but he was stuck to the ground as C Slevin was especially in the first half but the whole team was . N O Brien was allowed do what he wanted in t...

Re: Offaly hurling manager??

Kaiserchief i agree with ur post ,all i want is to see us compete again in 2018 ,to do that we need a big panel and most of our best player on board. On a side issue the new structure will be a huge challange to the club game as i think its unlightly that any senior club hurling will be done till mi...

Re: Offaly hurling manager??

I dont expect all those lads to come back under K Martin but i hope a few will come back . With the changes to next years championship ,4 big championship games in a few week i wonder how seriously teams will take the league . Will Galway Kilkenny take it easy early on in the league ? There will be ...

Re: Offaly hurling manager??

I was liking your comment until you got to the calling lads back in area. Some of these guys have left for every manager because they wern't been givin a fair go or fell out with the CB. To get these lads you named back the first thing Kevin will have to do is put measures in to ensure players are ...

Re: Offaly hurling manager??

K Martin is set to be appointed Offaly hurling manager , i think he is ideal The last 3 managers were terrible and didnt call in enough to have A verses B games . That may have been the CB fault trying to save money . Hopefully the CB wont tie his hand and will back him and i hope he get the support...

Re: Offaly SHC Final - St Rynaghs vs Kilcormac/Killoughey

4 titles in 6 years is a great achievement for KK . Killian Leonard was my man of the match . S Byrne and his managment deserve great credit for getting the wheel on the wagon rolling again . He now has a full panel to pick from for the first time this year . Great to see D Currams back ,his last po...

Re: Offaly SHC Final - St Rynaghs vs Kilcormac/Killoughey

Its the final most people predicted all year , D Currams loss for KK is massive ,I expect a tight low scoring game that could end in a draw or a 1 point win either way .

Re: New Managers for 2018

I was hoping when i heard on the radio that Offaly had got a Kerry man to manager our footballers that it was Jack O Connor . That was never going to happen. Its a long way to go to find a manager guess he must not heard what our county board is like to work with . Slight worry is how poor Tralee IT...

Re: Offaly SHC

tried to play, rynaghs experience with the running game probably seen them through in the end though Clareen had a complete melt down after half time offering nothing going forward. Joe Bergin was on the end of one or two digs that went unpunished though he missed some scorable frees which could ha...

Re: Offaly SHC

Belmont gave everything but KK got their game plan right for the second half against the wind using C Kiely as a sweeper .Belmont got level and has 6 or 7 wide but KK fought like dogs and created 2 goal chance against the elements .It was a real battle ,G Healion and K Grogan did some job on O Kelly...

Re: Offaly SHC

[quote="Lone Shark"] I still have no idea how good or bad K-K might be, because they didn't win the second game - Shinrone lost it. That insulting to KK who won the second half by 9 points and are unbeaten . My view KK did enough ,their back in a semi final ,they have blooded a number of guys becaus...

Re: Offaly hurling manager??

i agree with all your comments.. the only thing i will highlight is that things can't get any worse so this might be the only attraction to a top named manager.. one person I was very impressed with was Cirain Carey who also had Mark Foley with him when @ kerry.. somebody like Cirain could be an id...
