Can somebody phone Jack Nolan before tomorrow’s game please. This is very difficult to listen to!

Give them a chance. Everyone has to start somewhere. I enjoy Carter. He is enthusiastic and generally quite well informed. Cant be easy talking for over an hour without making a few mistakes.

Rosenallis have the sticky defenders and legs to frustrate Clough Ballacolla's danger men. If they can avoid a shootout I think they will do it. Verdict Rosenallis by less than 3

If Kavanagh is out that is a colossal blow for RE. He has been flying it in last two games. Neither team impressed v the stronger teams in groups. RE lucky to draw with CB. BK very lucky to beat Camross. Lost to Rosenallis. Either team could kick start their year here with a big performance. Still think RE will sneak it however.

Just a few questions. Rosenallis won this last year with a very youthful fast team. They look like they will stay up too. Did they generally compete in A or B football underage up along? I know some of their hurling teams more than hold their own in A but what about football? Were they generally strong B teams on their own?

People always give Timahoe a chance in this grade but its a few years since they really competed. They just havent seemed to click in recent years. Quigleys long term injuries seem to have taken a toll along with a lack of young players coming through.  Have they much at u15 and u17 level to luft them in coming years? I dont think SPG are running at all like they used to at underage.

11 deaths in the south in August and we dont even know if those people died 'with' or 'from' covid 19. Is it all a bit OTT?

In fairness the thread was started to gauge opinion. You can give yours without trying to influence others.

I feel like the enthusiasm is gone too especially now with no supporters. Juvenile coaches are being left in a horrible limbo. All these people are trying to do the right thing and help out with their community teams but the likes of Stephen Donnelly doesnt seem to have any awareness of child protection or best practice. The GAA has worked very hard for years to bring their coaching and child welfare to a high standard and his statements are leaving coaches very unsure.

Ive added a poll as I can see a few hundred views on the thread and not everyone wants to comment.

Just a thread to gauge the general mood in the county around this pandemic. I know the enthusiasm was high when training and games returned in July but has it waned? Are people enjoying being involved or is the uncertainty, form filling and protocols draining your energy? The latest behind closed doors directive only dilutes the impact further. The uncertainty and flipflopping about attending childrens games is also unresolved.

Basically we should...
1.Pack it in for 2020?
2. Plough on?

I’m not sure if any of you are aware but port are missing Paddy OSullivan , Sean Byrne , Alex Mohan, Robbie Pigott, Jake Foster , Ronan Coffey , Stuart Mulpeter all through injury or being out of the country .

Ive heard 1-2 of those are injured. Would be confident that at least 3-4 of those are available. Port are the team to beat IMO.

This of all years is Port's to win. I think they will not only win the senior cship this year but it could signal the dawn of a new super power in Laois football. Port to win this year and maybe even string a few together. Huge underage talent there.

From watching a few games and seeing team line-ups and subs used I think Castletown look weakest at the moment. A few starters that struggle at this level and very little coming in off the bench. Anything can happen but morale will have taken a knock and they facing two probable 10+ losses before relegation game. The relegation probables on otherside now have score difference to fight for so every minute counts and this could sharpen their hurling whichever team does end up in the relegation game.

Would have liked to see how the last few minutes would have played out had that goal not dropped in. Camross had lost their grip a little but generally have a reputation for winning tight games although they have lost their last 2 cship games to late goals. Mark Dowling was the sharpest forward on view. Keenan still has a huge influence for them. I thought Andrew Collier did well also and Carroll was involved a lot. For Borris they got the win without being overly impressive. They need Whelan to have any chance of winning it out. Any word on his injury?

1 - Best memory supporting the hurlers- Dublin 2019 pitch invasion, the quarter final was also a day you could be a Laois person with pride too. League qfinal in 96
2 - Favourite match beating kk in 96, Paul Cuddys goal to beat Dublin in Nowlan park early 00s
3 - Favourite player pre 2000, post 2000 (for the older lads) Pj Cuddy, Damien Culleton, Liam Tynan, Mark Kavanagh, Purcell
4 - Best score/favourite Keenan sideline from near 65 v offaly terrace side
5 - Best individual display in a match- Willie Dunphy v Dublin, Hyland v Offaly
6 - Match with best atmosphere Laois v Dublin
7 - Most impressive victory
8 - Favourite county ground Nowlan Park, Tullamore
9- Most disappointing memory ( you can rank them)
Worst- Laois v Meath in Navan around 2002
Losing to Wicklow in Div 2 around 2007
Cork 10-20
I will stop there.
10 - Worst refereeing decision against us
