Laois / Re: 2018 National Football League Division 4

Today's only Tuesday, so they had a few beers Sunday and Monday to celebrate and most were either back in work or college today. The Limerick lads probably had a few beers aswell.
Carlow and their manager would love a title whether Div 4 or not so I don't buy this crack about only being worried about Louth. Carlow would love to beat Laois.

Great respect to the hurlers for getting over what was a very tricky tie with Antrim up on their own patch. I certainly feared the worst after the results for both teams last week. It shows you that goals win games and Purcells goal was the difference in the end. Although I have been critical of Paddy in the past with regard to his decision making in front of goals at times, there are very few goals coming from anyone else in the team. To have any progress at all we really need to be scoring more goals.
The lads can go forward to the round robin now in a decent frame of mind and hopefully get their day in Croke Park later in the summer.

There was certainly a height difference across the board and the Dubs won plenty of primary possession both backs and forwards. They also tended not to over carry and would move the ball quicker. There was plenty of LAois ball cleared up the field straight to a Dublin man. 

Nothing like bad wides and missed frees to drain a team either. It was said earlier in the league that the other forwards weren't contributiing enough and King couldn't keep carrying the scores. He had two bad days and no one else stood up to the plate. If you're over reliant on one man for scores then you're in trouble.

It will be very interesting if Antrim can beat Carlow next Sunday. Sets up a big derby game the following week with winner taking all.

Momentum certainly with Antrim after todays games. A win up in Ballycastle is a big ask. What's happened with Ross King since the Antrim game? He couldn't miss in the earlier rounds. After such a promising start today's performance was so.disappointing.

Hopefully he has a good game. We have to win one of these games at some point, why not Sunday. Of course we'll think the worst based on whats gone before but we've shown what we're capable of. Best of luck to all involved Sunday. Ye deserve a break.

Some cracking games this weekend.

Galway v Limerick - can Limerick finally get promoted.

Laois v Dublin - can Laois get a vital win to prevent a relegation play off.

KK v Wexford will be some battle in 1a considering the cats got some of their mojo back last time out and Davy will have Wexford going all out.

Any news from the panel? Any injuries?

It would be a huge reward for the players efforts if they could beat Dublin on Sunday. They didn't do themselves justice against Offaly, players or management, but they have the chance to get it right this weekend.

It would be a fantastic boost if we could get the win.

Going for Quinlan over Joe Phelan was a hard move to understand. I like Quinlan and he's a good size of a lad so I can kind of see the logic but he was thrown in the deep end completely. It was a gamble that was very high-risk.
Matthew Whelan or Podge Lalor to go back in were much more sane moves in my opinion. I know Leigh Bergin had his hands full but he was doing ok in any case.

Joe went on to hurl for Camross in the Palmer Cup straight after; wouldn't be overly surprising if he didn't return to the panel. A pity as I, for one, have championed his inclusion for a good few years now.

merman, do you know if Joe Phelan was back with the panel during the week? Hopefully Kelly can re-assure him that he has plenty to give to Laois hurling for the season ahead. We will need a good panel with all the games that will be played.

Jack Nolan and his co-commentators were scratching their heads over some of the substitutions like Dunphy but particularly the taking off of Foyle. Looking at Foyle in previous games he doesn't get enough of ball hit into him and is forced to come looking for it. Jack Nolan also said that with the wind behind them in the firt half there were no balls sent into the full forward line for the likes of Foyle and the other forwards to contend.

Any opinions from lads that were at the game?
