This should lead to a reform of the senior football championship structure. I'd like to see the number of senior clubs reduced to 9 and three area teams making it up to 12 teams in the championship.
Based on last year's quarter finalists if I remember them rightly, Portlaoise, O'Dempseys, St Joseph's, Graiguecullen, Ballyroan Abbey, Stradbally, Emo and Portarlington would be senior clubs. Throw in Ballylinan as 2017 finalists for an example as the ninth senior club.
Then you could have 3 very decent area teams. One would be Mountmellick, Ballyfin, Clonaslee area, one would be Killeshin, Crettyard, the Arles teams etc and one would be Heath, Annanough, Courtwood, Timahoe etc.
The pick of Killeshin Crettyard and the two Arles clubs would do a fair job on Emo if that’s the case

I stand corrected but I heard from a very reliable source that meaney didn’t travel to Croker on Sunday on his own accord cause he wasn’t on the 26 panel named. He was a decent ball winner something that we are badly lacking everywhere in our team at the moment . Tyrell will probably get the nod In place of Lillis but it still remains to be seen whether he will be good enough .Bracken from ods ,Eoin Dunne from Rosenallis and Daly from Joseph’s were realeased from the panel after the O’Byrne cup . They were all being looked at for mid field .

There seems to real hostility to change on this thread. Timmons, Donie, Begley, Meaney, O'Loughlin etc must have 50+ years of Laois combined between them and what have they to show for it? Give the young lads like Nerney, Tyrell, O'Flynn, Whelan, Byrne, Murphy etc a chance for god's sake. If it costs us Division 3 promotion so what, we aren't exactly destined for Division 1 anyways.
We might as well make the most of the older lads while we still have them cause they are all our better players . We should be fielding our strongest team and worry about replacing them when they do retire.

Meredith could do a job there if we could only get him in.
I personally don’t think Meredith will be back but I can see Sean Byrne being tried there . He’s decent in the air and seems out of position at half foward . Meaney wasn’t on the 26 the last two games(and made his feelings felt over it) so you could see Tyrell thrown in instead of the suspended Lillis

Anyone have any guesses on what the long term solutions will be for midfield ? Just say after Jol Lillis and meaney who are all over 30?

Complacency was the biggest factor on Saturday .

It came from the manager with the team selection and filtered through the players ..

I've no doubt we will thump Sligo the next day ..

Not going to criticise too many but I'd only give pass marks to munnelly Boyle Brody Begley Scilly was unlucky to be taken back off.

The train on the way home was a sober one with the rugger heads crying into their beer aswell
Saying we will thump Sligo on Sunday is more complacency. I’d take a one point win now any day of the week

Pay no heed to fools like that . ‘‘Twas a bad day that’s all I think you’ll see that vast majority on here have full confidence in JS and his management team
I’m not a fool. It was his decision not to start our three best players. I’m stating my opinion . I know the truth hurts but someone has to point it out. We are fooling ourselves if we think Donie Evan and Colm shouldn’t be starting . Those three  players were the reason we got a victory in Newry.

I wouldn't worry too much about that performance. I think it was typical of Laois teams down through the years, win a game they're not expected to and the cockiness creeps in and inevitably they are caught in the next game. I really believe if we had lost to Down we would have picked up two points here today.
John Sugrue seems to be the type of guy who will use that performance to drive home a few things to these guys and I hope they learn from it. I believe they will and Sligo will suffer for it next week.
“John Sugrue seems to be the type of guy who will “ my arse . He’s the one that made the decision not to start O’Carroll Kingston and Begley. How can u win.

You embody the worst in any "fan" f*ck off the bandwagon and go boil your head.

Best of luck to john and the team on the rest of the season great to see a couple of 100 travel up to croker for a leauge match.

It’s the truth . You can’t afford to be without your 3 best players on from the start

Down have named a very very beatable 15 . Down people aren’t confident about their setup so I think we should fancy ourselves tomorrow

Yous can say what u want. there’s nothing hectic about that Kerry 15 named

I would be more concerned if I was a Meath supporter after that result.
And Meath bet us by 13 points two weeks before so we’ve enough on our plate ourselves without dragging other counties into it
