Laois / Re: Next Laois football manager

Lads its a complete mess at the minute, rumours abound and our championship is moving along regardless.

We need a manager in place asap. The right manager of course but we need a figurehead in place for the quarter finals especially if its going to be an outsider with no knowledge of our players.

Sugrue owes nothing to Laois supporters but the players are still in the dark and speculating just as much as we are. Does he not owe them something?

This is leading to a dark cloud over Laois football when there was no need for it.

Sugrues departure has left a sour taste in the mouth and if the rumours that he has agreed to join O'Connors back room team are true then it further sheds a dark cloud over this sorry affair.Once again Laois players and supporters left in the sh!t.

For Laois moving forward I'm genuinely worried as to who we will get, this could all go wrong very quickly and move back down the divisions again.

Its Kildare or nowhere for Jack O'Connor.

Rumors abound that Laois have approached a good few outsiders about the job, its seems a character like Eddie Brennan for the footballers is on the cards. From what I hear it'll only be a Laois man if the outsider route fails.

Any names?
I heard both  Padraic Joyce and Thomas O'Se were approached , Joyce not a flat out no  but waiting for Galway decision and O'Se has no interest .

If Sugrue is gone for certain I'd like to see Billy Sheehan or Chris Conway in there.
They will come as a team, one wont come without the other

Sugrue did a good job with Laois at a bad time for Laois and really it seems like he has the hard work done in terms of weeding out his squad and bringing fresh faces in. With Division 2 and 2 years conditioning under these lads its a surprise he left.

Its a pity we didn't hear why he left , if only just to stop the endless rumors doing the rounds about certain groups of players and /or our CB etc.

If he ends up with Kildare as coach or manager it will be some kick in the teeth to Laois football.I'd say thats unlikely and I would probably say his next move will be to a top club team.

As to where we go from here I dont know, there are no credible options within  the county at the minute and as for outsiders we dont have the money to get a top manager.I suspect  another journeyman incoming or else taking a total punt on an Eddie Brennan type recently retired player .

It seems every ounce of optimism that was built up in Laois football over the past 18 months or so has now disappeared.

Laois / Re: 2019 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship

Jaysus itís great to see ads for the live games Sunday with Laois top of the bill.
couldn't agree more, I spend a lot of my work travelling around munster especially tipp and cork , and to be able for once to be looking forward to being part of the action at the biggest stage of all is amazing. For Laois to be given real praise from traditional hurling people not just patronising praise but real praise has been brilliant... I couldn't be prouder of this team and what it's done for hurling in our county.

There is some crowd going up Sunday, tbh I  have seen this much interest in a Laois match since the Micko era with the footballers.

It'll be a brilliant stage for our hurlers and they deserve it, for too long have the hurlers been in the shadows in this county and for the lads to get validation for their existence on the biggest stage of all is magnificent.

On Sunday lets back them to the hilt no matter what way the game pans out and not lose sight of what a great year its been and how this is only the start for Laois hurling. We have a chance to build something here now, I hope to god the GAA, Leinster council , county board and all clubs  back hurling in every way from here on in. Lets not let this opportunity pass.

Laois are in no position to take anyone lightly but that doesn't mean we cant believe in our own abilities and know if we play to our potential we will beat Offaly no matter how they play.

Nothing wrong with confidence. Laois by 4

Why do Offaly people call Laois Leix....... Is it meant to be a derogatory term? It really is kind of pathetic if thats the case.

Heard it was a little closer than that but in any case it was a good run out but neither team at full strength.Typical challenge match.

Isn't it strange - we know that if the lads play to their potential they could beat Westmeath and give Meath a right rattle, maybe getting to Leinster Final again.
But then you face the all powerful Dubs - what should we wish for ?
Croke Park Leinster final day has to be the aim.

I fully expect Laois to perform well against Westmeath and in the championship in general. We are well able to beat Westmeath and Meath. In Donie and Evan we have two class forwards who are capable of doing damage, we need them on the ball as much as possible and develop a better quality of ball delivered into them, it has to be quick and accurate.
