Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Thanks for clearing that up. The dreaded virus has affected the championships. As the game is in Nor'n Iron, can spectators attend? Seems like more latitude in sporting and spiritual matters north of the border.

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Offaly got there by 3 points, but it sounded like it was hard in the end.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

dj carey was a great hurler but was as bad as any one i ever seen for over carrying the ball. the skill he has was to look like he was going to play it any moment but not doing it. he got a goal that won a game against us and def too 10 or more steps before he scored a goal..and he got one against ...

Re: Longest serving players in Offaly club championship

The only stand out candidate from the names mentioned is Mullins as he has played at the top level since 1996 the rest of dropped to lower ranks. His level of performance and attention to detail is what any top team is what all teams success is based on. I am surprised a top inter county team has n...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Great post white grass. In terms of stabilising managers over the last 10 years, Cribbin and Flanagan yes both going close to promotion and even though both were far from perfect they did a good job. Maughan can’t be regarded as that, it’s been a turbulent reign in some respects, avoiding relegatio...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

We all hope TMcMahon's prediction for Sunday is correct. White Grass, highlights two problems with Offaly, scoring goals, and beating Longford in league or championship. I suspect White Grass might be a Ferbane man, and perhaps connected to journalism, given his detailed analysis of football. Offaly...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Offaly will comprehensively beat Carlow . Carlow can only compete if they play that defensive brand of football. They are playing more attacking now and will struggle at the back without the large numbers behind the ball.They change managers not that very long ago so it will take time to break out ...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

The Ferbane Thing for me is simple Jack Should be in there on the panel . Brilliant young GK. needs to be nurtured and given confidence by management. Has a Brilliant attitude And wants to get better and learn The way Maughan has treated ( game time When fit) and referred to Cian in interviews is l...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Roscommon game should not have proceeded today under no circumstances...they had one case and Cavan county polluted with Covid... It's history now. Though it seems there are inconsistencies in how different counties deal with the virus. Roscommon are promoted, along with Armagh. Cavan and Fermanagh...

Think you can lose your first game. Lose 2nd and your gone
Thanks for that. Offaly County Board will meet and decide tonight, if the game can be played. I read recently that Offaly are favourites to win the competition, may have to do it the hard way, here's hoping we can field a team.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

the Leitrim manager was looked on with distain almost in some quarters last weekend, and at the time, I thought he spoke the truth...hard to see some of the bigger counties, where cases are rocketting are not affected...I didnt follow the Offaly game last night but seen the starting line up so assu...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

For offaly to be a strong hurling county, a liam mccarthy county, Then whole county needs to produce quality players. Put in the work, up skill players and more importantly, the coaches!!. Better coaches equals better players. Your geographical location will not determine if you are good at hurling...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I detect nearly a sense of reliefthat Leitrim forfeited against Down and may not play next weekend possibly, if that is the level of hope in this Offaly squad we might as well shut up shop now..I didnt see the game yesterday, but listened to R3 commentary..the usual over labouring in possession was...
