Laois / Re: National Hurling Legue 1B 2018

They wanted to lash it to Kelly last year but we still beat them. They will be up for it for sure and it will be a physical battle which I hope Laois don't get dragged into niggly stuff as I feel it would affect us more than Offaly. Probably see a few cards and wouldn't be surprised if a couple were red. Offaly are big and physical but we haven't been afraid to go at teams this year and we have skillful forwards who if they click on the day can do damage.

There is definately a good team spirit.

I also should have mentioned Foyle as well who was well involved and scored a cracking point. Was out a bit far from goals at times but would like to see him closer as he's our best bet to bag a goal.

What's the story with John Lennon and Ryan Mullaney? Are they still injured?

Waterford looking very lethargic and maybe therer's a bit of burn out with them. Mentally you would wonder if they are suffering from the final defeat last year. It's still very early in the year though and the harder ground will suit them better. With the new format it's like finishing the league to play another league so plenty of games to come.

Tipp are motoring nicely but Wexford could have gotten something from the game. They could both meet again in the knockout stages and you wouldn't bet against the yellow bellies.

Laois performing very well and the 5 point victory didn't flatter them at all. Two big battles to come against Offaly and Dublin and they will not lack confidence going in to these games based on what's gone before. Avoiding a relegation battle will be the main goal and a q/f spot will be a bonus. Dubs not looking good at the moment and have to go to Portlaoise in their last game. They've had little difficulty with Laois in recent times but that might be different this year.

I thought that it was great win on Saturday night mainly because Laois didn't play particularly well. They put in far better performances against both Limercik and Galway. It was a very scrappy, stop/start game and the first touch for both teams was poor. Once again the inability to put the ball in the net when presented with the chance. We should have had at least one or two goals considering the amount of chances we created. While great to get the points, a 10 or 11 point win wouldn't have flattered us.

While there were mistakes against Antrim I think the backs are playing well overall. Midfield was solid enough and Ross King didn't miss anything. The forward line as a unit could have been better but the likes of Cha and Willie Dunphy will have much better games in a Laois jersey. Comerford for his first start did very well and it was great to see substitutions making a difference. Downey and Kavanagh made their mark when them came in.

Considering we are still without Cahir, Dwayne, Picky, Collier it bodes well for later in the year. We should have no fear going into the last two games based on performances so far. Both Offaly and Dublin are out of sorts and it's a real opportunity to get the points and avoid a relegation scrap and look forward to a q/f instead.
Our scoring difference could have been much better but as it stands we are ahead of both Offally and Dublin in that department and the dubs still have to play Galway.

We have definately shown progress and there's no reason we can't target a 3rd place finish which would be a great achievement for all involved and would set things up nicely for the championship. The main thing is to keep motoring and stay as injury free as possible.

Very important game tomorrow evening and no chat about it.

Antrim seem to have got their act together this year so will be formidable opponents. For our own progression a win is vitally important I feel particularly with the trip to Tullamore next week.

I assume Cha is fine to play as he's a real leader for this team. If they show the same agression and application as the Galway game they have every chance of getting the vital 2 points.

Lets hope it's a win and an injury free encounter.

Great crowd the last day in O'Moore Park albeit a good porportion from Galway. Hopefully the Laois supporters come out tomorrow and give these lads a boost. It would also be great if we had a goal or two to shout about!

A Kerryman with strong Laois connections.

Sure Crosbie had our best footballers sent to Kerry in the 17th century. No wonder Kerry are so good, it's the Laois bloodline

Will Cha be playing for CarlowIT today? If so I hope he's available for Saturday against Antrim.

Wexford at 8/1 to win win the Div 1 league title is surely worth a punt?

Laois team named for game against Waterford tomorrow. Ross Munnelly back in the corner. He's an example to all young footballers. Still has the hunger to keep it going.
Laois will be too strong for Waterford and should have a few points to spare over them.

Antrim do seem to be playing very well at the moment and if we can get the win we'll head to Tullamore on the same points as Offaly because I can't see them beating Galway next weekend. Our score difference is far batter this year than it was after heavy defeats to Limerick and Galway last year. Offaly have a good scoring difference on the back of their big win over Dublin.
There's been nothing between us and Offaly over the past few years so it should be 50/50. Dublin on the other hand have done us and I wouldn't want to be relying on a win there.

That's why there's a panel there.

Lowry is flying for UCD. Himself and O'Carroll were in top form for UCD yesterday. Lowry hasn't done enough and on top of Siggerson Sugrue probably felt Ross deserved his start. He might be getting older but he's well able for Div 4 football.

One of the heroes from 1986. Very sad to hear. Thanks for the memories Pat.

We have Galway on Sat night and I'm sure the game last week has given the Laois lads a boost. On the other hand it also gave Galway a kick in the arse. Laois have a long injury list at the minute so I cannot see us coming within 3 points of Galwaybut would be quite happy to beat the bookies hanicap of 12 points.

The game against Antrim is the big one for us in two weeks time although the likelihood is we'll both meet again in the relegation decider.
