Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

are we not getting a wee bit ahead of ourselves saying we would give Dublin, Clare and Wexford etc. a game and not get hammered???..Dublin lost to KIlkenny by 5 points last weekend, and were there or there abouts in that game up until the last 10 mintues..how good were Kilkenny, I dont know, Brian C...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

interesting observation hoping we dont win the league..I can see why...surely though winning the League is part of their goal..as you say then is it back to 20 or 25 point defeats then next year against the higher teams..I think the arugument of "your better off playing stronger teams" is a bit tire...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

well said above..Offaly moved the ball well for sure but I would hasten that Meath were tranformed to a poor level after the water break whatever happened I dont know..they were confident and picking their passses all up to that...Offaly I suppose decided to have a go at them, and fair enough Meath ...

Re: Div 3 South predictions & general comment

unfortunately while an avid Offaly supporter it is a long long time ago since I was at an Offaly football game..young family and the cost involved closed off that avenue for me almost 20 years ago..and its like anything, once you stop going you wonder how you afforded to go in the first place..kids ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

credit to the the Offaly hurlers where it is due, as others said above, they pushed on and put the game well out of sight once they got ahead, I will add though that Meath did seem to fall very much asunder...I have mentioned in other GAA forms that I hope for the sake of hurling that the so called ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

sorry good to see Eoin Cahill abit further in, Ide have him further in but then we dont know what they are doing in training either..put Kelly centre forward and put Eoghan Cahill in the corner..some will say not..I think Kelly needs to get into the game from a central postion and carry the ball thr...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

I seen the team earliLer and thought, yes, a bit of change around,lads named to start in different positions etc. Look, the panel is now as it is, start Shane Dooley..I dont know, I hear why he might start but is he fully fit, maybe he is not going that well in training, and the day is gone for star...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

lets be devils and try and call the score..I'll go Offaly 1-16 Meath 1-12 (very possibly way higher points tallies but Just with all teams being idle practice wise I think very high points tallies wont be met first weekend back)

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

I am basing this on nothing I know, but I think we will beat Meath, we have to really putting it simply. They have our number more or less I know from previous years. We dont know the Offaly team yet and it will be interesting to see it, I hope it is a bit different from last year...would love to se...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

Given his name is Brian Mullins I was thinking he must be early 40s now..I checked there he is 42 this year sometime...still an excellent keeper but given how laid back he was when he was with Offaly he is hardly going to commit to county at this stage...he was a super keeper in fairness for Birr an...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

to be fair to Clancy this is (I think) his first time in squad and with a chance of getting a start..while he may be capable of doing anything as the poster says, he is also very capable of stopping goals, has the courage of a lion and has proved that with Rynaghs..exactly, little point saying Brian...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

A good point about no fans, but I dont know, if its down to no pressure from fans at a game to take pressure off, I dont know..Derry and Wicklow I think will ask questions of Offaly, we should get over them but of course that cannot be guaranteed either..from memory I think Offalys game V Derry last...
