Ballyroan were poor. Missing a couple all the same as was the Heath. 2 reds and should have another conceded another 3-4 goals only for a few good saves and poor shot selection. No doubt Ballyroan will be well improved come championship.

Have to say Ballyroan were very impressive against Stradbally. Seem to have a few of the abbeyleix lads on board too so could be a push to come this year. Have to say I was seriously impressed by Eoin Reilly, looked every bit a county footballer marking lads who have been in and around the county set up.

Was up in The Heath this evening. Heath 0-10 Joes 0-10.
Very boring game. Both teams operating defensive systems. No stand out players really. Denis Booth solid for The Heath at centre back. Their full back line was decent too. James Smith had some good moments for Joes in midfield.

PORTLAOISE: Richard Downey; David Holland, Ronan Molloy, Darragh McAuley; Chris Finn, Dean Cullen, Jack Brown; Ciarán McEvoy, Adrian Kelly; Conor Dunphy, Benny Carroll, Shane Smyth; Ricky Maher, Scott Lawless, Kevin Fitzpatrick. Subs: Aaron Rafter for Cullen (36mins)

A jasus Town1880 we could all throw similar comments like that around. Such as, Portlaoise bottled the ten in a row or that one of Portlaoise's marquee players bottled a 14 meter free in front of goals in a club leinster final a couple of years back. We could say Portlaoise bottled both league games against O Dempseys this year. Their are many reasons why teams lose games but to say they bottled is silly, do you agree Town????
Title: Re: ACFL Division 1A

Bottling is when you have a full team and don't produce a performance.
Not when there is 7 first team players missing and 4 junior c players jump in to give a team a hand out.
Very easy to be vocal while supporting a club which would never have to face a scenario  like that.
They did themselves and club proud.
I'd say the town 1980 would be the first to cut the back of his own club and players.
If they  get to the final best of luck to the players on the portlaoise team.
Not to the faceless keyboard warrior slobbering on himself in the corner of the mixer

When did they need to beat a "shite graigue side", and what right do you have to call any club side "shite" when they all train as hard as ye but don't have half the pick of players ye have. Portlaoise are a class club but clowns like you destroy their name and promote hatred among the other clubs...

No, I understand what happened to Laoistalk, that was a very well run forum and sadly missed. 

I've been on a few other forums where clowns like him do nothing but run down guys who have nothing but respect for their counties and have to put up with insults when they express their opinions. All that serves to do is to make genuine posters leave and not waste their time reading trash like that.

Tony is a genuine guy and I don't know how he puts up with some of the stuff that's thrown at him. Whether you agree or disagree with his opinions is up to each individual but he has an opinion and sticks to it and you have to respect that. I think he speaks a lot of sense and Creedon will come good given time. He has had a horrible start but if the lads believe in him that's good enough for me.

. In fairness most clubs are a "bit watery" these days. Clubs nowadays are defined mostly on how successful they are on the field.If clubs/teams are decimated by this "travel bug" that's widespread these days they are deemed watery/weak. The club that avoids disruptions are generally successful. O Dempseys have been one of those clubs, when they have a decent run they suddenly lose a load of players to travel and they then fail. Bally roan were also affected by player travel ( And they will again due to the young age profile of their squad). St Josephs are another club presently effected by the "Travel bug".( I hear at least 8 of their players are presently touring North& South America). The older the age profile of teams the better. Prime example were Kileen and Arles when they were reaching County finals. Stradbally's age profile  last year was high so they didnt suffer any disruptions through their year long preparations.

This was the result, great report as usual town1980

Portlaoise: 0-17
Graiguecullen: 1-11


From Laoistoday.ie
Portlaoise 0-17 to 1-11 win over Graiguecullen puts Portlaoise into second place in ACFL Division 1A. St Joseph’s are already guaranteed a place in the final and Portlaoise will join them if they beat an already-relegated Ballyroan-Abbey side in their final game next week. The result also ended Graigue’s slim hopes of making the final.
O’Dempsey’s are also in the hunt for a final place but they need to beat Arles-Killeen in their final game and hope that Portlaoise slip up.

I deserve all the criticism but let me just say to put out the intermediate team that wouldn't play last night against port and played tonight is just pure disrespectful to the league and to the supporters,, I'll take all the criticism no problem but lads read the team sheet and come back to me,, again I didn't expect malachy to be doing that shite,, and I hope it doesn't come back to bite us,,, I was wrong

Very unfortunate for the portlaoise players tonight it was a very entertaining league and 2 watery teams meet in the final best of luck of luck to them. It looks like the town 1980 has the knives out for his senior team management I'd love to say I'm shocked but you really can't buy class. Stick on the bib get comfy in the corner of the mixer slap on you're mick lillis for president t shirt and talk absolute nonsense you troll maybe show people the picture of you as a sub on the junior A 2005 team .
Portlaoise as a club don't deserve to have "supporters" like you cutting them to shreds. To all the real supporters best of luck In the championship. OR as the blow in second generation dub the Town 1980 calls it CHAMPO

Looked at the Plaois team on Laoistoday and they had very few if any first team players so id take that result tonight with a pinch of salt...someone though has to reach a county final and everyone is in the hat

We needed a win, and will take the confidence boost it gives to a lot of chaps.   Probably more of a Portlaoise intermediate team but they prob would knock around quite well in Senior Championship.  After the some of the trimmings we have had this year am happy to be going forward.

Fairly confident he is. Name was sent in for the match day programme anyway. Best of luck to both teams both are short a few key players but I think daly will tip it Josephs way. Can't see him getting  a Josephs player dropped a big thing as he played with them all the way underage

You obviously don't know Joseph's. It's an extremely unwanted distraction for a club that was going well. The Barrowhouse man missed a crucial penalty last night too.

The club have no one to blame but themselves. Imagine letting him take the f**king penalty and he only in the door, Jesus, some slap in the puss to their own players.

Not a great match Josephs set up extremely negative and got 13 behind the ball. Not much you can do against those tactics bar be patient and grind out a result. Disappointed in the sending off spitting at another player is the pit's.

Post by: The Saint on July 10, 2017, 04:00:23 PM
Pretty poor stuff alright. Thought both teams were very defensive, very hard look at a team filtering everyone back with almost no-one looking or interested in the opposition bringing out a turned over ball, as in, just get into your position irrespective of where or who has the ball. Us being down to 14 men after ten mins was the real killer, not the missed penalty. We've all seen penalties missed by the very best at the highest of levels, don't see what the shock and horror is about Brian Daly taking and missing this one.... He kicked a sweet free off the ground from out on the sideline at the end of the first half...and no-one horrified he took that?? Overall josephs have really felt the miss of the 5 or 6 summer tourists, not just last night but for the past 3 or 4 games. Disappointing game and result, good crowd present though.

As above. Tough viewing. Joe's will be better when their missing travellers return. Odempseys did well and have some lads to come back in too. There was a big lad up front for them carrying an extra bit of timber but he did well.
Think the championship is pretty open this year.
Title: Re: ACFL Division 1A

I believe the presence of the new recruit will end up being more of a hindrance for Josephs. It's unwanted pressure.
Title: Re: ACFL Division 1A
Post by: The Monument Road on July 10, 2017, 06:22:26 PM
Horrible horrible game and it really hi-lights the standard and lack of talent within the county. Why are teams trying to adopt this mass defence system especially when they dont have the playelrs capable of doing it.  Both were missing loads and someone told me Josephs were missing 9 of the team that done ok against Portlaoise in last years championship. Thats a lot to try and replace. Daly was a bit unlucky with the penalty , struck it hard but it cannoned off and nearly broke the crossbar. (I did notice a couple of people near me that i recognised cheer his miss and they were not from O Dempseys. Not nice to see). That young Nerney at full back is a solid defender and worth a try at county level next year. Barry Kelly is also one that should be tried. A bit like his dad Eddie was in his day.

Simply put a few clubs have bent the rules and tested the morality of players which they failed, not the club's fault just human nature to feather your own nest or club in this scenario.
County board have weak laws and bye laws in place to protect smaller clubs who will eventually fade away into existence which deep down not even the poachers of the county want.
We can argue the "above board" and occupancy of houses (they'll need bunk beds in that house in kileen soon) scenarios clubs try to justify getting sloppy transfers through but in the end any victory will be tainted by whispers and the under current of unfairNess from the beaten teams.
