Re: Poll: Will John Maughan and/or Niall McNamee stay on or leave/retire?

I guess my question on this is how much progress was really made this year? Were we not just steeped with a league draw that saw us drawn against teams that were easier than if we had to play a full league as I’m not sure we would have beaten Longford, Cavan or Fermanagh if we had to travel to play ...

Re: Offaly v Fermanagh

Thanks for clarifying BnM man. Reading the match report on RTE it sounded like we really let Fermanagh back into it and panicked in the closing stages.
Anyway I didn’t care how we won, just glad that we won and are moving in the right direction for the first time in a long time

Re: Offaly v Fermanagh

Delighted for all involved that we got promotion. Game management is still a huge issue as we had Fermanagh well beaten in the 2nd half and yet needed a scrappy goal late on to make it comfortable!! Everything I’ve heard and read sounds like we played great football in the first half and then retrea...

Re: Offaly V Kildare 2nd round of LSFC

Ah lads, what are ye talking about? Who watched Offaly in the league this year and thought Maughan was holding lads back for the Championship? We are probably as bad as we’ve been since the mid 90’s, with no sign of a good m U20 coming through to get us excited like we had back in 1995 which laid th...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

I think the criticism of Michael Duignan of his work with the media of late makes no sense!! He used his reputation as a pundit as well as a County board chairman to go on off the ball and highlight a few glaring issues with the GAA’s handling of county teams training/ not training since lockdown en...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Michael Duignan was on 2nd Captains last Monday saying that he’s learning as he goes as there was no handover from the previous Chairman. He seemed to imply that their trying to get more funding from Croke Park to try and fund some of the initiatives that they have as he is looking to implement a si...

Re: O’Byrne Cup

I think beating Westmeath in the semi final is crucial as we have really made them our bogey team over the past 5 or 6 years, so a win at this stage of the O’Byrne cup could only have a positive impact on the squad and on management!! Promotion from Division 3 has to be the main objective for this y...

Re: Kehoe Cup 2019/2020

Great to see us getting a few wins under our belts at this time of the year, it can only be good for morale in the squad and get lads a bit of confidence... Can’t be underestimated how big a year this will be for Offaly hurling as now that we’ve dropped down we need to bounce right back up again oth...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Just to clarify, i’m not saying Offaly to win Liam McCarthy by 2022...but at least be back in the All Ireland hurling championship and be competitive!! Plus i’m talking about the end of the 2022 championship which is 3 championship years away...that’s 3 years potentially of Michael Fennelly managing...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

So now that Michael Duignan & his group have got into power what will be the benchmark in the next 3 years to prove that they were the right people to take over and have done an amazing job in progressing Offaly forward!! I suppose some milestones should be: 1) Offaly senior footballers qualify for ...

Re: Football league 3 2017

Let's be clear on something, Offaly weren't as bad as the Armagh defeat indicated, we've been more than competitive in every game in the league, but the comments made by the 2 club officials had nothing to do with the defeat to Armagh, it was just an attack on Pat Flanagan that was clearly preplanne...

Re: U21 football

Well done to all players and management involve in beating Wexford, right now in the county we'll take any win we can get and we really needed that win to keep some kind of optimism going in the county. Dreadful night to have to try and play football, but a win is a win & we move on to fancy Laois o...

Re: National Hurling League 2017

It hardly takes a genius to point out that we are where we are, Offaly hurling has been on a massive spiral downwards since we took a massive beating in the All Ireland final to Kilkenny back in 2000, in the time since, we've never once appointed a high profile manager who could come in and bring a ...
