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...

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

another "distraction"..if I hear the line "oh Kevin is a good friend, a great Offaly man, owes Offaly nothing blah blah"...we know Kevin (Martin) is all the foresaid, no one is debating that, had he the ability to dig us out of the hole we were falling so far into with the bottom of that hole very m...

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

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

If Westmeath loose one more game, I think it is all to play for (again)...they have Antrim and Laois away, so it is possible, and of course that's provided Offaly win their two games also..

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Just looking at the table of the JMCD Cup, we are bottom, potentially, we could make the final (STILL) Laois have Westmeath for their last game on 15th June, same day as we have Kerry, if Westmeath lose to Laois, and we score well, we can still make it by my reckoning, wouldn't it be great if we cou...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

mathematically now, are Offaly back in with "a chance" of reaching the final of this competition after Westmeaths defeat to Kerry on Saturday, that's hoping somehow Offaly can beat both Antrim and Kerry and Kerry/Westmeath loose to Laois if they (Kerry/Westmeath) have yet to play Laois...wouldn't it...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

biffinbanner if Kerry beat us in Birr, so be it, I don't remember Kerry beating us in Birr in any league game that I can remember, if was championship, its in recent times and would surely have been in Tullamore...as cited elsewhere, the statistics of Birr even when we were supposedly "poor" read he...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

well look back (I know we are not meant to be dwelling on past glories!) at the late 1970's and early 1980's, it was schools in Birr, Banagher, Roscrea, Lorrha etc. (despite being in Tipp children from Coolderry, Kinnity, Shinrone, Clareen, Ballyskenagh etc. Eyrecourt, Killimor, Portumna, etc in Gal...
