Don't want to start a new thread for this so I'll put it up here.
These are the player gradings for 2018 from the Official Laois Gaa website:

       Times and Dates for the 2018 Senior Football Championship

2018 Club Championship thread was started last March ...

A very poor first half again put paid to any chance we might have had of winning this one. We escaped against Wexford with a performance like that but it was never going to happen against a quality side like Monaghan. Having said that we really came into it in the second and I have to admire the courage and never say die attitude of this team. Brody was very good at shot stopping but a few bad kickouts and messing around in the square put us in trouble a few times. He could learn a bit from Beggan's kickouts but he is a fantastic talented keeper and we're lucky to have him.

I see lads making more excuses for Donie but the fact is he is not producing what he is undoubtably capable of.
One point from play at the end of the game and missing a great goal chance by kicking it straight at the keeper and making it easy for him. I might be overly critical of him but I know he can do so much better, a goal at that crucial time would have put us in a great position and really shake Monaghan who we had on the rack at that time of the game.

Ross was really feeling the pace and he should have been replaced by Gary Walsh far sooner than he was. I just hope Gary stays on as he has been treated badly for a guy who was so instrumental in getting us out of Div.4 this year. John O'Loughlin's injury was a big blow and even though he stayed on for a while his impact faded after the injury and we suffered for it.

Overall we have achieved an awful lot this year and John Sugrue, his selectors and the squad deserve the highest of praise for bringing respectability back to Laois football. Hopefully John will stay on for a few more years and, as he say's himself, "we'll see where it takes us"..

Look lads, we sorted this stupid stuff out before. We all agreed to ignore that type of comment and if you keep those arguements going you are only playing into the hands of those who are from different counties and only come on here for an arguement. If things get personal then my advice would be to ignore posters who do that.

Most people who post here are wise enough to figure out who's genuine and who's not so don't be drawn into that silly "Hogan Stand forum" mentality and just ignore it.  Personaly I think Chrimtain and Laoisabu have posted some good stuff here and no matter where they are from they are entitled to an opinion like everyone else.

Serious beating alright. How’d the other game go?

Match changed to 2.00 p.m. on Sunday in Newbridge.

Who is referring the game tomorrow, can't find it anywhere on the net...

Have to agree about our underage teams and the way the Co.Board have neglected to invest in them over the past ten years or so. 

It's not the fault of the young players but the Co. Board should hang their heads in shame...
