Personally I found the timing of the article quiet interesting but maybe that's just me.
Joachim and the management did look for the game to be played in Birr(there wasnt a mention of that anywhere)
Maybe next weeks article might be on St.Brendans park which is a fine stadium and everything which is done is ALL voluntary.
Stop with the side shows. They can be addressed when the dust has settled. 1 player from the Birr club on an Offaly starting team is a extremely poor return from what once was one of the greatest club in the country for many a year. Offaly needs the Birr club to get their ducks in a row and start producing great hurlers once again.
A job needs to be done this weekend and an article on good work in Offaly is always welcome particularly when we're on a low ebb. But the bickering and energy that goes into sideshow issues like what you constantly refer to is especially tiring and helps no one when we need to collectively pull together as a county to try and save face.
Birr seems to have lost its way.....Please just concentrate on hurling in Birr and bringing back the quality players that used to backbone all offaly teams through the 90s and early 2000s. No more distracting comments or adverse north v south battle lines please. Just work on the hurling and getting back to where St Brendans and Offaly need Birr to be.
As for the team named for the weekend....it seems interesting. Hopefully their confidence will have been lifted by the new set up and if all of that starting 15 hurl to their potential we have a good shout of getting a positive performance I think. Antrim are always tricky for us it seems and the way they disposed of a clearly useful Kerry is something we need to be very wary of.
Best of luck to the entire squad and management.
