At that stage are they not neutral venues?

Last Leinster final we were doing fine but hit with sucker punch goals either side of half time.

In saying that when we played them under O'Flaharta, as Tony said, we lead at half time and in previous years we seem to have been the only team in Leinster that could compete with them and cause them problems.

Pity Attride is missing after his cracking goal in Nowlan Park. It's a breath of fresh air listen to a Laois manager who knows and believes what he's saying. That's been lacking for a while!

The games were unwatchable under McNulty even if we did win more. Give me the set up that's there now any day of the week over McNulty. Has he done anything in management since then?

Cluxton out won't affect the result but there should be shakey moments when Donie could get his fist to a dropping ball. Definately should send in a few high ones early doors.

It has to be driven by the clubs. There's no other way of doing it and you need people from within pushing their own clubs. Anything to be said for another petition? Send it to county board.

And won there against Laois so a big playing surface doesn't affect them.

With Jack Nolans profile he'd be a decent man to push something like this with his role in the media etc. He's as disappointed and frustrated as the rest of us but would be well known and could garner support to put pressure on the county board. They were discussing it on his facebook page.

Sounds a bit like previous senior football managers.

If kelly doesn't know how about interviewing some of his back room team. Someone should be able to throw light on the subject.

It's time the hurling clubs come together and have a go at the CB if the will is there. It can only driven by the members and it will take someone with a bit of inititiave to get it started. Without the support and numbers from the clubs there will be no pressure on the CB to do anything.
If there is a will there is a way.

But you have to play to your strengths. I agree size was very noticeable on Saturday so no point raining in high balls. Play a shorter, possession based game and give balls into the corners for forwards to run on to. Utilise what we have to best of our ability which hasn't been happening. I cannot understand how we can go to Antrim and get the victory to keep us in the competition and then fail miserably like we did on Saturday. Antrim beat Carlow and went very close to beating Westmeath. A win last Saturday coupled with Antrim beating Kerry next weekend would have seen us through provided we beat Meath. Would anyone put their house on us beathing Meath next week? I wouldn't!

Meath beat Kildare yesterday and put a huge score up against Wicklow.

Felt sorry for Matthew Whelan today. still waiting for his day in Croke Park. Was one of the first back to the dressing room. Bit of a shambles today. We looked fairly clueless but can play much better. If/When Kelly goes we have to get a Laois man to get the passion back.

AOIS: Enda Rowland (Abbeyleix); Joe Phelan (Camross), Leigh Bergin (Shanahoe), Colm Stapleton (Borris-Kilcotton); Podge Lawlor (Ballinakill), Matthew Whelan (Borris-Kilcotton), Ryan Mullaney (Castletown); James Ryan (Rathdowney-Errill), Paddy Purcell (Rathdowney-Errill); Ben Conroy (Slieve Bloom), Neil Foyle (Borris-Kilcotton), Ciaran Comerford (The Harps); Willie Dunphy (Clough-Ballacolla), Ross King (Rathdowney-Errill), Stephen Maher (Clough-Ballacolla)

No Cha alright. Has he picked up an injury? His form hasn't be brilliant this year but he's still a big player for the team.

I would agree with that point. Rules should not be changed to suit particular counties. Offaly were relegated a couple of years back by Laois and were straight back up.

On this weekend s games, Laois have to beat Carlow and hope that Westmeath get the better of Antrim. Any other results and Laois are gone. If those results come to fruition then next week Antrim have to beat Kerry for Laois to have a chance. A very tall order but not beyond the bounds of possibility.
