Laois / Re: Laois Intermediate Football Championship 2018
« on: September 19, 2018, 06:00:13 PM »
The Portlaoise Intermediates gave the most timid performance of the weekend. In a county like ours, and with so many Senior teams, it amazes me that Portloiase haven't got a second senior team. I'd go as far as to say that there is a failure within the club if they can't achieve this. I think we can all accept that Portlaoise are not for splitting (I certainly don't want that anyway) but we as a county do need more from them. They are after all the biggest club in Laois by far. This isn't meant as a criticism of Portlaoise, but I think it is obvious that their Intermediate team are under achieving. I also think they have players who are more than capable of playing Senior, but for whatever reason don't. From what I saw against Courtwood, there wasn't one player capable of making the step up, and that can't be right. No pressure at all on the first team. If no pressure is coming from within, and there's little coming from the rest of the county, you would wonder how Portlaoise can improve. I think they need to do something, because for whatever reason, they're not catching the imagination of their own players, or for that matter, their own town. Again, no offence intended.
Just one thing. They don't ever really seem to bother "holding lads back" for the second team. On Sunday they used 20 players and also had Cahillane and Glynn not togged.
If they really wanted to go for the intermediate, they could probably win the senior using 18 players!

A few interesting teams here:

Hmm. Conor Gorman is probably finished at the top level now. Doubt if he's one to look at.
John Scully seems to have no interest in any thing beyond club football. Evan Costello is one I'd like to see getting a decent try out at that level.

Thought Joseph's looked like a team who could possibly give Portlaoise some sort of a test in a semi final or final.

Some fine players and I also think some of them were a bit below par on Sunday and could improve. I still don't like the way they acquired young Daly. It will always be thrown back at them if they ever go on and win it.

Adam Campion looked a great corner back. He blotted out Colm Kelly completely.

I'll go with Graigue, Joseph's, Portlaoise and O'Dempseys over the weekend.
Emo probably best placed to overturn those predictions. Local derby which could be a cracker.

Semis tomorrow.
Mountmellick should have enough for Rosenallis. The other one could be very tight. Maybe Courtwood could edge it but Portlaoise have a good record in this grade and possibly should have won it last year.

I think we'll have a Kilcavan v Annanough final. Surely Annanough can lift it a bit from scraping by Camross?

He's been very diplomatic. I think you listen to that it's clear what happened.

He is, held his station! He knows there are good players with Carnacon that could come back and add to the team and he does not want to burn that bridge.

Looks like Cora has been telling a few fibs. Looks like two players were told their roles in the team had changed and these players were not happy - and decided to take things into their own hands - use their power drag a few players down with them and it backfired.

This is the first time they have encountered a manager strong enough to make big decisions and wade it out.

It looked like this would go away, only for the County Board to also grow a pair and firmly put Carnacon in its place.

Cora ''opened her mouth to wide'' last week and she could live to regret some of the strong accusations she made.

Did Leahy say that?
No. That's not a quote from Leahy.

He won't win it but he should.
If look at it from an overall perspective, he's been the best keeper in the championship and league and made the least mistakes by a mile.

This is a great read, about time the rest of the counties woke up and did something about this totally unfair favouritism of Dublin...
Only in Ireland would this carry on be accepted.

Gaelic football is dying, dying, dying ..........

The guy who wrote that is unbalanced in his hatred of Dublin. An Athy man who "liked" a tweet about Johnny Cooper's stabbing - hardly impartial.

He's not wrong. The Dublin attempts to discredit him as much as prove it.
f**k him. I wouldn't wipe my arse with anything he writes. Even hates Laois more than Dublin.
His views on Laois are irrelevant in this argument. He has the Dubs on the run, they’re frothing st the mouth trying to discredit him.
I'm not arguing. I just won't read anything the c**t writes. 😊

Laois / Re: The future of laois hurling
« on: August 28, 2018, 10:57:24 AM »
How would you suggest addressing the athletic development issue ?
Laps

We have no structure or Co-ordinated plan,we are  a long way behind the big and even medium  guns so we need to work smart and hard to catch up

We have 16 u15 hurling teams with roughly 300 players in total

Here’s my plan October to March

Friday/Saturday evening hire a sizeable sports hall or school hall in laois

Week 1
Get 2 clubs full u15 panels in both the Friday and Saturday nights with mentors,go through and show the requirements needed,these go home and do the 3 weeks program as set out by the GDA’s/S&C person

Week 2 next 4 clubs,Week 3 next 4 clubs,Week 4 next 4 clubs

Week 1 clubs come back in Week 5 for an assessment of where they are and what tweaks/adjustments need to be put in place.

They then come back in Week 9/13/17

GDA’s should be on hand to visit clubs when they are doing their 3 week “home” cycle if at all possible

I look forward to Ye ripping it to shreds.
Excellent idea. I seriously recommend that you email that to the county board.

They are too far apart for this to be a long term amalgamation . Maybe Annanough should look to Timahoe or Park Ratheniska or the Heath ? Would Clonaslee look to Kilcavan ? Or Ballyfin ? I assume Rosenallis isn’t an option due to rivalry up there .
Annanough, Timahoe and Park Ratheniska would have the makings of a fine senior set up. All could retain their own junior and intermediate teams and go together in the senior.

Looks like an another have almost  pulled from the clonaslee  setup......  Only two or three played against Killen.  No Stapleton or Millers.  Concentration  all on junior  now.  Ballyfin will probably have just enough to stay up
Can't say I'm surprised.

Not all. I just think these Gaels teams have ruined Laois football. The likes of Mountmellick would rather get a few players to make up there teams instead of working with there own club players. Pure laziness really.
Be a Gaels team coming down next year too. Clonaslee or Ballyfin.
