Great win today. I only seen the second half. Offaly were very accurate with their shooting. Very little wides. But the way we left the door open for Kerry will be a concern. We should have had the game killed off mid way through the second half. On to Carlow and and hopefully another win

Never in doubt! :mrgreen:
The training they've been doing at Tullamore dog pound to practice holding onto leads is starting to pay off.

great to win a close game which weve been the wrong side of last 2 years.. conceding 2.28 to kerry tho isnt a great look. still a confidence booster and lets hope we can handle carlow and on to the final.. and 3rd time lucky against antrim!!

Massive win for this team. Delighted for them, no easy task going down to Tralee and getting a result. All the hard work these lads have put in is paying off. Hopefully they can make the final now and a trip to Croke Park with nothing to lose.

I thought offaly were poor in stages and very fortunate to get of tralee with a win. But the lads dug it out and very well done to them. I'm delighted for those hurlers who put in such an effort.

However, In the second half it was like watching a the management of a junior B team. We lorded down Puck out after Puck out down on their half back line and they must have won 90 per cent of our Puck outs in the second half. When we did go short it seem to work out better. What were Fennelly and Kelly looking at?

Surely we can get a better system for our Puck outs. The inability to catch the ball in the air ( with the small exception of this year's minor team) is completely lacking across all our hurling teams.

It might come as a surprise, but some times players don't do what's asked of them.

Exactly get whole county behind them. I think our boys coming good at right time. We are fitter than antrim and if we get them into wide open spaces of Croker we'll take them

I think kerry had homework done on our Puck out.
But we do need plan B.
Losing 10 point lead is worrying
