This time we need A managment team that cares and understands offaly hurling.Then we can stop the rot

Re: Additions to County panels Football and Hurling

Most of them have been tried and tested sam and didn't make a difference the couple who haven't had a chance Kelly and coughlan for exapmle wouldn't make a huge difference to what is there at the minute - so basically it's all the one. Of Course the would make a difference lads because we could pla...

Re: Hurling Plan, Whats the story?

Things progressing well here: From Midlands Radio on Facebook... "Offaly's hurling review committee have resigned en masse. The group headed by former Ballyboden manager Liam Hogan, who authored a report on hurling in the Faithful County last year decided to step down in frustration at Offaly Count...

Re: Offaly GAA - in Crisis?

Now that the CB and Tommy Byrne have rode out the storm what next. Byrne when secretary tried to get Banty in 3 years ago insted of Flanagan and when that failed he wanted Paul Curren parachuted in after the decision was made to give Flanagan the job. So whats the betting he has been working behind...

Re: Offaly SHC

3 of those games in the SHC look like non-events at this juncture. Birr, Banagher and Clareen will easily account for Shamrocks, Tullamore and Clodiagh Gaels respectively. And while Lusmagh will be really aiming to turn over Coolderry, if Coolderry are at full strength and hurling relatively well t...

Re: Offaly vs. Waterford 2017 Hurling Qualifier

According to any member of the Offaly senior panel that I have spoken to, Eamon Kelly was held in the highest regard. He introduced the hurlers to GPS tracking and had a very professional setup with him. However the manner of his departure (regardless of who you believe), and where he subsequently ...

Re: Offaly vs. Waterford 2017 Hurling Qualifier

After the loss to Laois 2 years ago I set out on this site that we should deal with the following 9 points and I still believe they are relevant. Point 3 substitute K.Ryan's name for B. Whelahan - 1. Accept where we are now without qualification i.e. at rock bottom 2. Forget about what we have won ...

Re: Offaly vs. Waterford 2017 Hurling Qualifier

As I see it. there really isn't an appetite at any level to put in the hard work required to resuscitate Offaly hurling. No leadership from the board; no expertise within the county; no understanding of modern hurling - that s&c is for othe counties who can't hurl; that we don't do tactics so we sho...

Re: Offaly vs. Waterford 2017 Hurling Qualifiernnify

I think B Carrolll is too young yet but i wonder would S Byrne J Leahy B Carroll and R Hanniffy work as a managment team.
it will take a managment team to stop the rot in my opinion.
We need E Murphy C Kiely G Kelly R Hughes C Mahon C egan on borad .

I agree but as Brian Carroll said Kevin Ryan statement during the week that Offaly needed to avoid a hammering and todays game plan was stupid .
Surely even county board can see that Kevin Ryan must go quickly .
