Re: Joe McDonagh cup

I have said it elsewhere, if you take a huge gap with meaningless league games to fill void while preparing for a championship (and grand everyone gets a league game, but the intercounty boys are "rested") their cant be any really momentum of intensity then after 6/7 weeks when you run out onto a LS...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

that and other issues too...just saying I know a lot of people just wont go to Tullamore to a match, I suppose it adds in the issue too of when we are not winning people wont travel, its a double edged sword in ways...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

I can't, for the simple reason that the instruction from my editor was to either get all three, or leave it - and you can see why, because to give airtime to one and not to others would be seen as bias. When the other two declined, that was the end of the idea. Not really fair on the fellah that di...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

ah not too many in recent times there was no incentive...used to love the matches in Birr, county final, National league games etc. we always didn't win but by God we were competitive..kids mainly used to kick off about the "getting out of Tullamore" after the match...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

I agree greenairfield....great to have the players from North of the county, but you need your traditional base, just look at how we are doing without the traditional base teams involvement...getting in and out of Tullamore town is not the issue, its having to park in the housing estates off the mai...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

just listening to Joachims comments on Saturday, he certainly (I doubt if it was intended) has made me personally wonder if the OCP debate needs to be looked at, co-incidence or not, hurling has fell apart since big games (and not so big) were moved to Tullamore, the South of the county just don't t...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Jaysus isnt it hard to believe we were reigning AI champions this time 20 years ago, our rot was sort of underway in ways...good beatings in Leinster Finals 1998/99/00 and then the the AI of 2000, we had a few glimpses of recovery in the years just after but honestly we knew it was always a false da...

Re: Offaly V Kerry JMCD cup - can we win this game?

mmm..interesting..hard to know with Bergin not starting, maybe management know/reckon someone else might be "able" for the Kerry No.6..Gath may not actually start on him (the Kerry No.6)...or else they are gambling (I know, I know people will say we cant afford to gamble) but maybe they are going wi...

Re: Offaly V Kerry JMCD cup - can we win this game?

I was reading his twitter posts there, apparently the treatment of one of the players dropped is his (Regans) gripe...I can see where he's coming from if that's the case BUT as I said earlier, players come and go, this happens from top to bottom in GAA in particular, has he (Regan)never been "slotte...

Offaly V Kerry JMCD cup - can we win this game?

rather than getting mulled up in all the other posts on the other JMCD blog, straight forward, do faithful fans think we can go to Tralee and get a win, and what changes might need to be made from Antrim defeat?

Re: Offaly v Sligo Round 2 Qualifier
