Re: U20 footballers 2024

Not from the county boards perspective in regards to the seniors as its the only realistic competition offaly can win after the national league. U20 b competition is not going to be taken any way seriously, especially if those players are in college with exams etc coming up.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

That's one way to look at a 16 point victory. Dublin are not your typical team they will not be happy with today and will view it as a rusty performance.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Meath hammered by Dublin in first gear. Dublin using leinster as a warm up for the all ireland series.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Very good win. No matter the opposition its hard to win. The real measure of this team will be after the defeat to Dublin, will the players stay for the TC or will they walk and go abroad as they won't miss a game of consequence with their club this year.

Re: U20 footballers 2024

There will be little interest because they are out and the remaining matches are of little value.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

I know it hard in the moment, and hindsight is a great thing but mgt I think are letting down this group of players. Didn't set up after the sending off correctly and the penalty should have been pointed. Not left up to the taker. Penalties are quite difficult to score. It was the losing of the win.

Joe mcdonagh coming now is going to have an impact on u20 preparation. Kk seem to be putting up huge scores.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Its hard to know at this level because a lot depends on who is in with their seniors. I don't think offaly winning was a surprise in parnell but you couldn't be sure of the win which is normal at this high level. Last year the offaly vs galway game had a cavet of galway having players ineligible to ...

Re: Offaly Minor Football 2024

There is a number of issues at development squad level and of who is dictating policy there. In my view they are the wrong people having too much of an unqualified opinion. I brought up this point before and was shot down in regards to S&C and the selection of players.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Little difference between the top of Div 4 and the bottom of Division 3. Offaly could very easily have ended up in Division 4. Only for wicklow the wicklow result, offalys stats during the league are very poor.

Re: Offaly Minors 2024

Early doors, but kildare look like being strong at this level of tier 2. By all accounts not a great performance today. U17 is very young and it's to be expected first day out. Will need to be a good bit better vs antrim next day out. They are physically strong.

Re: Offaly Under 20s 2024

Competition set up by kk simply to bridge a gap. You can't have played u20 to play in this competition. It's minimal contact time to help keep players in the loop.
