Total sea change in Laois between hurling and football right now. The hurlers a much better prospect for any potential managers. Footballers will need a Laois man for the job as the post will only attract a fly by night manager similar to the likes of Teddy McCarthy with the hurlers a few years ago and we certainly don't want to go down that route.

I agree, a local guy with passion for Laois is what we need right now, another year and another failed outside manager would be a total disaster.

The most important question we need to be asking in my view is not who the next senior manager will be, but what group of people will take responsibility for underage development and player pathways in Laois, and how will the county board resource them. Personally I think this needs to be a mix of former stars who are respected (Clancy, Tom Kelly, Beano, Joe Higgins etc) and a few outsiders that have overseen developmental progress in other counties. Perhaps someone from Tyrone or Dublin for example.

In complete agreement....this is imperative and a huge part of the strategic committee review

Colm ORourke made some good points last night on the bigger picture.

Joe canning article was a good read too  ..

There has to be a tiered championship

Would take a while to bed in but we would wonder then why it wasnt always there.

Local man for the laois jod and a ten year plan to try and make us competitive again ..

Yep, but in a tiered championship we are probably in the lowest tier right now!

Maybe, but that gives us the opportunity to build a new team.

There should be 8 groups of 4. Top 2 go to play for 'Sam' and bottom 2 play for 'Paidi'. Last 16 games open draw with first playing second and played on a knockout basis. Therefore everyone has the chance to play for the big one.

Both finals to be played on the same day with u17 final taking out  of Croker.
