Graham Brody;
Stephen Attride, Mark Timmons, Gareth Dillon;
Trevor Collins, Colm Begley, Marty Scully;
John O’Loughlin, Kieran Lillis;
Eoin Lowry, Donie Kingston, Benny Carroll;
Ross Munnelly, Evan O’Carroll, Colm Murphy

That team is well capable of scoring 1-14 or 1-15 which will beat Offaly.

Good attacking team named. Should be well able for the 2 points against a struggling Offaly team.

I would think Roddy would be more than welcomed back in. We could certainly do with him. I would think he wouldn't take that long to get up to speed and there's 2 months until Mcdonagh cup first game against Offaly. Be great to have him back.

Thar an trasnán - over the bar
Go hiontach - excellent, brilliant, very good

After winning the corresponding game last week and with an 11 point lead at half time it was hard to believe that Carlow got the victory (with 14 men). Fantastic achievement for them but Offaly must have thought they just needed to play out the second half. I know momentum changes games but to give up that sort of lead at home in such an important game musn't give much hope to Offaly hurling supporters.
Offaly will have more than enough for Div 2 hurling and will be back up straight away however when the likes of Bergin and Dooley go there isn't much to replace them. Anyhow if the GAA really wants more teams up to standard then they need to invest in the likes of Offaly, Laois, Westmeath, Antrim etc. It should be targeted investment directly to underage coaches and school liason coaches. Clubs also needto be brought on board so kids are getting the right coaching all of the time,

I felt sorry for Neil Foyle Saturday evening. How many times did he actually get the sliotar in hand? Similar to the Dublin game he gets well marshalled and  ends up in a physical battle for teh game. The lad has ability but not sure how he should be played to get the best from him. He certainly stays trying but we're not getting him invloved in the game enough.

Willie Dunphy injured I take it. Picky left out too. Cha did look a bit unfit the last day. Defense lines up the same which is fair enough.

Mice one Mossy hopefully you get a competitive game.

There seems to be a problem finding the best position for Picky. I thought he played well against Offaly but was quiet enough against Dublin.

Trying to buy a ticket online for the game Saturday evening but can't see that game anywhere. Anyone know what the crack is?

blueandwhite1 I haven't had the chance to try and do a long post on each player. Suffice to say that the defense as a unit were very good. Both corners, Matthew at full and the half back line were excellent. Mullaney bar one major error came out with some amount of ball and he doesn't get pushed off it. He was also well able to catch the sliotar despite the conditions. I thought Delaney had a great game too.
Cha still looks a bit off the pace but he threw himself around and plays on the edge as we all know Cha does. Downey was good. Willie Dunphy was playing very well in a much deeper role and he was missed when he went off injured. Foyle did well but he got badly held and dragged and got very little from the ref.
I would say that the substitutions probably swung it for Dublin but all in all a brilliant Laois display.

You're right there's no Dr Cullen Park in Ballyskenagh! Tullamore it is so.

Offaly going to get the two wins required to avoid relegation. Carlow after their draw against the tribesmen have gone downhill. I hear the playoff is in Tullamore. Surely it should be in Carlow or a neutral venue seeing as Offaly were at home yesterday?

Fantastic gutsy display by Laois in very tough conditions. Plenty of water on the pitch and players were sliding all over the place. I honestly felt the conditions would give us a chance and fair play to the lads they got stuck in from the word go.
The ref was inconsistent and some of the decisions were very frustrating. I also think that the ref had forgotten he had already given a yellow to Cha when he dished out the second one as it was only when he was putting the name in the book that he called Cha back.

Two incidents near the end decided the result in what was a very close game. Aaron Dunphy went on a great run with Paddy Purcell supporting him. He should have passed it inside earlier but continued his run and passed to Paddy when he probably should have taken on the shot himself. The Dubs cleared the ball up field and got a point. The short puckout afterwards was fumbled and Dublin scored a point again to go from 1 down to 1 up. In what was a very tight game those two incidents at the end made a big difference.

In saying that we had a couple of great goal chances earlier in the game. I thought the defence was excellent throughout and handled the Dublin attack. Physically we got the better of Dublin and it was another one of those Laois performances where it was left behind.

Onwards to the Limerick game and hopefully we have a performance similar to Clare or Galway under Cheddar.

On a side note, fair play to the lads in the ticket van outside. I went to buy a ticket and they gave me a ticket that someone else handed in. They joked that anyone who travelled up for the game in that weather deserved a ticket! It's not often I praise the dubs but fair play to the lads for that. That was as generous as it got on the day!

You’re right. All Offaly can do is decide who they’d rather play. Don’t know what I was smoking earlier.
