Re: Offaly senior football in general

Now the managers is a different story. A manager has a tough enough job looking after the players in his care, he can't be held responsible for the 70 - 100 footballers bubbling under each year.

Re: Offaly senior football in general

THe fantastic blend of youth and enthusiasm along with mature and experienced players is going to prove fruitful this season.[ edende...

just reading the thread on the senior hurlers 2011, it also strikes a chord with the footballers. for the past few years the whole thing has been a shambles in general the way it has been managed and the county board needs to seriously look at itself. also the senior and under 21 managers need also ...

Re: SHC Final

wasnt at the semi but by all accounts, james keane was harshly sent off and the appeal went to the county board. the appeal apparently was based on video evidence of what actally happened regrding keane and dunican, not on any heresay. therefore the county board had no option but to disregard the re...

County senior football championship

ok, co senior teams are out, so who are going to be the big players in the local club senior championships. in the football it will be hard to see past rhode given that they didnt win it last year and will have extra motivation because of this.

Re: Offaly vs Waterford All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Rd. 2 10/7/10

need to learn lessons from the last day. both corner backs too slow for inter county football as is richie dalton.Niall Darby is not a wing back and should not be picked there. brian connor is not a centre forward and ken casey is too yellow for county football. Paul McConway is lacking a turn of pa...
