Is Brendan Quigley an option at midfield this year, surely his injury must have healed by now ? ?

Is Quigley part of the panel?
I'd say he is still involved. He was part of a group of Laois footballers that visited sick children in hospital over the Christmas period so that would suggest that he is involved at some level.
It would be great to have him back as we really need a midfielder of his calibre.

Two good players who will help strengthen this team.
The panel will be cut after this game so some lads will have to impress now or they're out.
This game is a dead rubber so they will be using it to finalise the panel for the year.

Another defeat, hope he's learning a bit about what he has as regards lads to make a difference as things are not looking too good at present..

Second O’Byrne Cup defeat for Laois footballers

"Things are not looking too good"

Relax mate, its only the f**king O'Byrne Cup.

Ridiculous to be reading anything into December football, Sugrue simply trying different lads out.
Jesus like, what hope has he to be trying lads out if fellas get up on his back with shit like "things are not looking too good" after a few mickey mouse defeats in shitty December weather.

Don, you're a very excitable chap, cool down there like a good lad...
There is no-one getting on John Sugrue's back, I have nothing but respect for that man. I'll try and simplify it especially for you, ok....

What I'm saying is that he now knows what he has to work with besides his old, dependable lads who are around for a few years now.
All teams are trying out lads at this time of year, surely even you know that much. They are all playing in the same "shitty December weather" so that's no excuse. My point was that it's not looking good if there is so much competition for places on the panel yet no-one seems to be standing out in trying to convince him that they deserve that place.

I was at the Meath game and although the weather was atrocious the Meath lads handled both the conditions and the rule changes much better that our lads did but to be honest I am sure that they will get better as the year goes on. Whether they do or not I will still be there at most games supporting them as I have been for the past 35 years or so.

Doesn't really matter where its on, the players would be training on Thursday if there was no match and they would all agree that a game beats training anytime...

Let's be honest with ourselves here. You would need to have an unconditional love for the blue and white jersey to go throwing yourself around a field in winter when in your heart of hearts you know there will be little reward for it.

And yet the footballers are doing it, and in bigger numbers than ever before. Sugrue must have something about him lads …..

The second round tie will take place in Enniscorthy on Thursday, December 20 (throw-in 8pm) having originally been scheduled for New Ross before being switched to the St Patricks Park venue on the Friday afternoon.

Interesting to read how much counties are spending preparing their Inter County teams... Laois spent €750.000

This is amazing, I couldn't have imagined this happening so soon after we hit the depths of Div.4. We have a lot to thank John Sugrue for, we are so lucky to have him in charge and long may it last...
