Title: NFL Div 3
Post by: Catch and Kick on January 16, 2019, 10:43:05 AM
Looks like it’s going to be a real dog fight with so many Leinster neighbors fighting it out. Great to see Laois punished with a game in Croke Park! You couldn’t make it up.
Down and Westmeath favoutites to go up?

Laois didn’t deserve any punishment. Sugrue has been very good with clubs. However for Croke Park to give a game in Croke Park as a punishment is taking the biscuit!!

If pre season competitions are anything to go by Westmeath and Sligo must be favourites for promotion. An O Byrne Cup title must give Westmeath great momentum and confidence. Sligo were edged out by the Rossies who hammered Galway yesterday.
Laois doing well on the challenge game circuit and seem to have a stronger panel than last year - they feel they are a Div 2 team operating below their true status..... time will tell

Ok. Here it goes again. I hope to be in Drogheda on Sunday - if only to prove that we are not as bad (even without the Mullinalaghta boys) as we were against Westmeath in O'Byrne Cup.

I think survival in Div 3 is the best we can hope for as we could be missing the Mullinalaghtas well into the campaign.

My predictions

Promoted

Westmeath and Laois

No Change
Longford, Down, Offaly, Louth,

Relegated
Carlow and Sligo

Four away games this year for us.  We need a win on Sunday if at all possible, we are a very young team and I like the fact that we are building for the future.  I think we will survive, but it won’t be easy. McDonnell is a big loss for us.

Summary of our win in Drogheda.

Longford were bad............Louth were worse.

Ah no - that's too glib. We just about deserved the win but for the last 10 mins we were 2 players up but still almost conspired not to win it.

A win is a win and we need these wins to survive in Div3. Louth will need to improve or they're heading for the wastelands of Div4.

Offaly at home next weekend. They'll have marked this down as a must-win. They may be too strong for us as we currently stand......

Seeing that Longford were down the 8 St Columba's players, the exam tied Dessie Reynolds, the injured Pádraig Mc Cormack and Connor Berry and the possible 3 retirees totaling 14 players unavailable it was a great result. Great to see the 3 league debutant as subs all scoring.

Westmeath blitzed the Biffos for the last 20 minutes but were woeful for the other 50, everyone stuck in reverse. Offaly were better than expected but what were they doing taking off Anton O'Sullivan? Need to get Kevin Maguire back into the full back line asap. Good to see Corroon back but it was Luke who made the difference when he came on. Should get a more committed display Saturday against Carlow.

Offaly boost with Niall McNamee set for return


Offaly manager John Maughan has been dealt a major boost with forward Niall McNamee making a U-turn on his decision to retire from inter-county football.

The Mirror has reported that the 33-year-old, who last played for the county in a qualifier defeat to Cavan in 2017, has returned to the panel and is expected to feature in the coming weeks.


Offaly began their Division Three campaign with a one-point defeat to Westmeath and travel to Pearse Park on Sunday to take on Longford.

McNamee’s return will seriously bolster the Faithful attack and the gifted forward won his 10th county medal last year after notching 0-09 against Ferbane.

The former Offaly captain announced his inter-county retirement in August 2017, with a 2006 Leinster final the closet he came to provincial silverware. He was nominated for an All Star that year after a number of sparkling performances in the championship.

A right punch in the gut to concede a goal at the death when hanging on for the win, another one to thank our magnificent keeper for. A much improved display from last week in difficult conditions but with nothing to show for it it's looking a tad bleak from here. The red card for Hughes looked rather harsh too, will be a loss given he did reasonably well today.

Carlow are the new black death, horrible to play against. We didn't do ourselves any favours, gift wrapped them a goal in the first half and when they were there for the taking in the second half we made some awful decisions in front of goal where a little more composure and shot selection would have seen us comfortably over the finishing line. The Fish caught some fantastic balls out around the middle and needs to be released from the shackles of the full back line. The referee was consistently inconsistent, lost complete control of the match early on. Kieran Martin's first yellow wasn't even a relation of a free, never mind a card, woeful altogether. Hopefully get better officiating next Sat, looking forward to Newry under lights.

Longford good value for their win. Carlow will need to seriously look at themselves. Playing a weakened Longford side they decided to play the ball across the pitch back and forth instead of playing man on man where they would surely have won - esp with the strong wind in the first half.

Longford got their goal from a pumped in ball (with the wind) as well as a point that hopped over the bar. Indeed the official match report should put down the scorer as 'An Gaoithe'

We did get the breaks - Carlow missed a penalty - but nobody from Carlow was complaining at the end.

I think we are safe now, barring a disaster - so if we get within a sniff of promotion then that's a bonus.

Down coming to Longford in 2 weeks time but, before that, the Trip to Tipp.

Awful football on view in Newry on Saturday night, lovely little stadium though and the locals couldn't have been sounder. Westmeath have gone back to one of their old failings where they always look to take a solo before getting their heads up whereas Down's first inclination was to move the ball on. Was no surprise that a Tally team got 15 behind the ball but after playing Carlow a couple of times already we should be more proficient at playing against this system. The GAA trialled the wrong rule around the handpass, they should have trialled keeping at least 4 bodies inside the oppositions 65 at all times. The crowds are going to fall completely through the floor if this style of football becomes common place.

Westmeath have only themselves to blame though, they missed a penalty (was a great save in fairness) and spurned numerous goal and point chances. Strange league so far, we could easily be on 6 points as be on 0 points. 2 weeks to take stock now ahead of Laois.

Croí na hÉireann is completely right about the poor spectacle which county football regularly offers. The restriction on hand passes was probably dropped too soon although it may not have ultimately proved practical.  The next option may well be keeping three men in the opposition half, as the evidence over dropping attendances is truly alarming.

Saturday night in Newry was a fairly typical offering, although it did get exciting in the closing stages when the contest was up for grabs. Westmeath should have been well clear at the break but used their extra player poorly and Tally's game management was exemplary in the second half.

 While Down are in a reasonable position in a very tight division, we could just as easily have zero points at this stage.  There are six sides in contention for promotion and it is likely to go to the wire.

It is an awful mess


https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/sport/gaa/gaa-should-have-restricted-players-to-just-one-handpass-reckons-dr-pat-oneill-900749.html

“The modern game wants the handpass and those that are making the rules and are responsible for them being implemented have conceded that.
“Being of the old school, I have to think there’s far too much handpassing. This was an opportunity to restrict it and return to what the game  is supposed to be — football. It’s so much like European Handball now.”
As a regular Croke Park matchgoer, O’Neill was alarmed by what he saw last season. “I would go to most of the Championship matches in Croke Park, not just the Dublin games, and I was never as bored as much at a game in my life as I was last summer.
“Some of those games were very pedestrian and they are following a soccer trend when it’s so possession-based.
“A different strategy is needed to entertain the public because over the weekend I saw the TV viewing figures from last year and rugby games are higher than the GAA’s. When you think that Gaelic football and hurling are our national games and reflect the wider community, that’s worrying.

And the former Fancy Dan

Walsh, pleased to have got the trauma of the previous week’s cuffing in Croke Park out of their system, was frank when asked afterwards about the concept of a team’s duty to entertain.
“With the amount of work that goes into this now, people are pushing the rules to the limits to the areas where you can take it to - I’m not talking about physicality here, I’m talking about the rules. That’s life, if the opinion is that you just want to entertain then that’s fine too but you have to try and get results.”

What's "European Handball"?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handball
Handball (also known as team handball, European handball or Olympic handball)[2] is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each (six outcourt players and a goalkeeper) pass a ball using their hands with the aim of throwing it into the goal of the other team. A standard match consists of two periods of 30 minutes, and the team that scores the most goals wins.


The ratio of hand passes to kicks was 3.5:1 in the 2018 all Ireland championship so it's not that far off

Absolutely loved playing basketball in my youth, great sport. I'm even playing a bit of Pella indoors...great craic. Loved Olympic Handball but only got to play it a couple of times.

They're all great games, to be honest - have used Olympic Handball in coaching to emphasize moving into position to receive a pass or to generate an opportunity for a team-mate to pass, but it's a great game in its own right.  Played a lot of basketball in my youth as well, another great game.

Ok - and we're back.

Down travel to table topping Longford on Sunday. Longford have a great record against Down and will hope to consolidate their push for promotion. I'm not sure how many of the Mullinalaghtas have made themselves available. This will be clearer later today or tomorrow.

Hope to see a win here and then I can relax a little as the chances of relegation would be slim.........
