Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

<t>every county has this situation, didnt Lee Brennan drop himself from Tyrone squad this year, it happens, only we notice it more given how limited we are, but so be it, realistically, in either hurling or football, you will not get every good player on board, personalities of both management and p...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Ah naming players who shouldnt be on the team/panel is a tad unfair now I agree. I didnt like the team picked but we have to try out players too, against teams in this division, I would imagine the the so called bigger players will be back out against Antrim. Without naming individual players not de...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

ah I wouldnt be getting to bogged down on how Joe Maher issued his views..its all online now etc. if he gave an interview to local paper people would be giving out about going that route, I seen him hurl with Belmont and he is a decent enough hurler too as well as being a good enough footballer, I t...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

ah I dont know about all this "give X player time" etc., David Clifford (21)is Kerry new prodigy, for the last year or two now even, delivering at All Ireland final, league final and club level. Cian Johnston is 20 years of age playing in Division 3, not that he will be reading or worried about what...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I dont know full story with game, wasnt at it, but listened to it on R3...two schools of thought, you can say Cillian got sent off (again) which is correct, listening to the build up I am going to say he did his living best to stop the attacker going through, it did lead to a goal so he obviously se...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I seriously wonder about all this "hitting the butt of the post" on regular occasions in tight games, I hear the argument not to kick it at the keeper but surely to God its the same players more or less we are talking about here, placing rather than power is a learned thing...couldnt believe on two ...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I know its hurling, but can we beat Kerry down in Kerry??..they were a decent out fit defeating us last summer in JMD, not withstanding we were very disjointed at that time..I have a hunch Kerry have our measure at this juncture in time, but hopefully our lads can pull somekind of performance togeth...
