It such a strange match to look forward to, there is zero expectation on us to win but on the other side this is a massive match. It'll be a proud day regardless of the score for Laois supporters especially those who have followed them religiously over the truly bad days.

It will be great to see Laois involved in a high level game once again and be the centre of attention . I'm delighted for the likes of Munnelly and JOL to get the chance of a Leinster final appearance before its too late.

I really feel we can do damage to the Dublin backline but my big worry is our defence. I just cannot see us stopping them putting up a big score. I reckon we are looking at something like Dublin 5-18 Laois 2-13.





Hard to imagine Dublin being up for this game, I am pretty sure they will start with an air of complacency.  Regardless of any manager how can you possibly tell Dublin players that Laois are a threat and regardless there is no chance they will buy it.
Not so sure about that. The problem other teams have with Dublin is that the f**kers dont take anyone for granted anymore. Underperforming after 15 minutes cos you're up against some shithouse from Wicklow? Fine, you're off and I'll bring someone else on for you. Even f**king Fenton has decided to add to his game this year because he wants footballer of the year, and as a result is kicking scores off either foot for craic.

I dont believe this Dublin side do complacency, but shur f**k it, we'll see.

I've no interest in a long conversation about it tbh. Simply defending my club
Facts will do that.

Just so that you might inform yourself a little Don, this is what a GAA website can look like

https://www.dublingaa.ie/

I'm sure you'll have all the smartass ripostes about Dublin's resources now....

But it seems Longford are able to do it too:

http://longfordgaa.ie/

There isn't a poster here who would prefer to see the Laois website shut down but it's fair to say that they are putting little or no effort into it. Putting up the fixtures on a website is hardly the pinnacle of information management in the GAA, is it? If you go through all 32 counties, you'll hardly find a worse example of public relations.
Excuse me, but a poster did suggest shutting it down. Even if it is a hape of shit, it is still vital for club results and tables. So no matter what it is, once its doing that, it is fulfilling a remit.

Dublin cannot be compared, that is being run by a professional entity.

What needs to be done is to find out who is in charge of the website and ask why nothing is being done about it.

And I'm sure we'd find a few shambolic efforts from around the country if we looked.

Shut down laoisgaa? What the f**k? Are you going to do the fixtures results and tables?!!

You lads are f**king mental at times.
Agreed but there is no other reason to visit the site.
Maybe they should strip back the site and just use it for results, team announcements,
Maybe a link to the Facebook and Twitter feeds too as they seem to be the main communication methods these days.
Websites seem to be dying a death for GAA clubs these days.
The website itself needs a lot of work, its been let go to rack and ruin in recent years, I presume its the office and IT Officers job to take care of it, and its not being done.

BUT, as you no doubt know, the tables, fixtures, results are an excellent resource. I remember and I'm sure you do too, back in the day trying to find results, and you'd get the top one or two tables printed in the Leinster every couple of weeks at best. Its naive and ignorant in the extreme to say shut it down. It could do more, but its still doing plenty.

Are plaois automatically relegated after not entering league this year,anyway i think league structures are going to be changed for next year
No

They should be!
Portlaoise arent in the Division, how can they be relegated from it?

I hope we haven't been working too hard on our plan to beat the Dubs without Cluxton:

Untruths. In fact, my source tells me Cluxton will never play again.

Has relegation been decided yet?

How did Gary Walsh go from being our top scorer to barely making it onto the field for five minutes these days. I know that infamous tweet didn't do him any favours but he's hardly still paying for it.
Anyone know if Cahalaine is still with the squad??

Does he work hard enough?
I love these comments, lads busting their neck for their county, out training rain or shine 5days a week and muppets behind their keyboard ponder on a public forum if they're working hard enough  ;D
Gary is an out and out finisher. Heíll have a part to play yet and he seems to be still enjoying himself and his role if the semi final celebrations are anything to go by. But an attack needs balance and it doesnít appear to have it when he and Donie are in tandem. Itís just one of those things. But we need him and will need him in the future.

John O'Loughlin must be captain for the final in the absence of Stephen Attride, great honour for him and well deserved..




Brody is vice captain

Paul is in America

Gary and Donie simply donít work together

Worked well in first half in dr cullen park this year
And that was it
