Re: In support of Offaly hurlers and footballers

I believe the players are doing as much as they can but the county as a whole is not working anywhere near it's potential. Yes, Offaly is a small county but it is also a disorganised county and this is where the real problems lie. There doesn't seem to be any overall plan and if there is I would lov...

Re: Allianz Hurling League Roinn 1B 2016

I agree allstar2010 2016 league objective completed and onwards from here. The 1st, 7th and 22nd is the focus now. One month of prep and hopefully get a few players like Wynne and Mahon back into the team. Need to top this group and then its Galway OCP on 5th of June. League quarter final on April ...

Re: Offaly Club Hurling C'ship 2016

Did the meeting Tuesday bring about any progress on April fixtures?

Offaly Club Hurling C'ship 2016

Have the fixtures been made for cship yet? Lads are saying that there are two rounds still down for April.
That's only 3/4 weeks away. Anybody know dates or who playing who? All a bit ramshackle at the minute.

Re: Allianz Hurling League Roinn 1B 2016

Not being harsh on anyone but 16 possessions for Gorman seems incredibly high. If you took 10 off that you might be closer and still too high. Where did those stats come from?

Re: Initial Offaly Hurling Squad

I know they are all doing gym work the past 4-5 weeks. Also played a few challenge games. I'd imagine Kelly will bring a much different approach to Whelehan. Was involved in a lot of 3rd level hurling before going to Kerry so would be very in touch with what a modern young inter-county hurler would ...

Re: Initial Offaly Hurling Squad

All very quiet on this thread. Is it because nobody knows who is involved, nobody is interested or are we on a 'tell them nothing campaign' before blitzing the country from January onwards?

Re: Club Championships 2016

Their are pros and cons to all c'ship formats. Fairly sure that in Laois the team relegated from Senior A has won the Senior B the following year without too much hassle. This has a knock on effect to the other Senior B clubs who are getting disheartened and don't really believe they can win a c'shi...

Re: Club Championships 2016

Anybody got the balls for straight knockout? 12 teams in a hat. First 4 out into the 1/4's. Next 8 play each other to fill the 4 remaining slots. 11 games in total and could in theory be ran over 4 weeks. The club GAA year needs to significantly shortened not by weeks but by months. Nothing sadder ...

Re: Club Championships 2016

The dilemma Offaly are faced with is another example of the GAA creating fixtures without thinking of the consequences. The Leinster round robin fixtures have caused major headaches for county boards and caused the league to finish in March when, in reality, it should only be starting. The Leinster ...

Re: 2016 Championship

On the subject of 2016 - I think it's a new low that Leinster Council have deemed it a good idea to start the Welsh Cup on the first Sunday in January. Now presumably someone saw a vacancy in the calendar and thought - that would be a great time to play some hurling. But wiser counsel should have b...

Re: Leinster Club Championship

Winning the ball in these situations depends very much on your ability to lift/roll lift a ball at top speed. This is rarely practiced in training as it is too 'basic' and players rarely practice on their own because it is too boring and they think 'shur yeah of course I can rise a ball'. But can th...

Re: Leinster Club Championship

Hard luck to Coolderry. at half time 6 points down with the wind at there back they should have had a great chance. 6 points in nothing in hurling and with that wind if anything it was Coolderry game to lose. Moving Joe Brady for Centre back to full forward destabilised the whole team. Cula just st...
