Big game in 1B this Sunday is the Offaly Laois game in Tullamore. Great to have a decent rivalry back between these2 counties.

Ryan is a good addition to that Port team. They are coming along nicely these past few years and there was very little between themselves and Ballylinan. Can be challengers if they keep progressing.

It would be great to see them get up to B level. How many of that team will be there next year I wonder? I see a few of them on the minor panel. How's Thep Fitz getting on, he's a good prospect!

There'll be no jokes about Earley being late. Was looking forward to the puns!

Anyone know how PJ Scully got on during the week? Kelly mentioned he would be playing in the mid week game.

They wanted to lash it to Kelly last year but we still beat them. They will be up for it for sure and it will be a physical battle which I hope Laois don't get dragged into niggly stuff as I feel it would affect us more than Offaly. Probably see a few cards and wouldn't be surprised if a couple were red. Offaly are big and physical but we haven't been afraid to go at teams this year and we have skillful forwards who if they click on the day can do damage.

There is definately a good team spirit.

I also should have mentioned Foyle as well who was well involved and scored a cracking point. Was out a bit far from goals at times but would like to see him closer as he's our best bet to bag a goal.

What's the story with John Lennon and Ryan Mullaney? Are they still injured?

Waterford looking very lethargic and maybe therer's a bit of burn out with them. Mentally you would wonder if they are suffering from the final defeat last year. It's still very early in the year though and the harder ground will suit them better. With the new format it's like finishing the league to play another league so plenty of games to come.

Tipp are motoring nicely but Wexford could have gotten something from the game. They could both meet again in the knockout stages and you wouldn't bet against the yellow bellies.

Laois performing very well and the 5 point victory didn't flatter them at all. Two big battles to come against Offaly and Dublin and they will not lack confidence going in to these games based on what's gone before. Avoiding a relegation battle will be the main goal and a q/f spot will be a bonus. Dubs not looking good at the moment and have to go to Portlaoise in their last game. They've had little difficulty with Laois in recent times but that might be different this year.

I thought that it was great win on Saturday night mainly because Laois didn't play particularly well. They put in far better performances against both Limercik and Galway. It was a very scrappy, stop/start game and the first touch for both teams was poor. Once again the inability to put the ball in the net when presented with the chance. We should have had at least one or two goals considering the amount of chances we created. While great to get the points, a 10 or 11 point win wouldn't have flattered us.

While there were mistakes against Antrim I think the backs are playing well overall. Midfield was solid enough and Ross King didn't miss anything. The forward line as a unit could have been better but the likes of Cha and Willie Dunphy will have much better games in a Laois jersey. Comerford for his first start did very well and it was great to see substitutions making a difference. Downey and Kavanagh made their mark when them came in.

Considering we are still without Cahir, Dwayne, Picky, Collier it bodes well for later in the year. We should have no fear going into the last two games based on performances so far. Both Offaly and Dublin are out of sorts and it's a real opportunity to get the points and avoid a relegation scrap and look forward to a q/f instead.
Our scoring difference could have been much better but as it stands we are ahead of both Offally and Dublin in that department and the dubs still have to play Galway.

We have definately shown progress and there's no reason we can't target a 3rd place finish which would be a great achievement for all involved and would set things up nicely for the championship. The main thing is to keep motoring and stay as injury free as possible.

Very important game tomorrow evening and no chat about it.

Antrim seem to have got their act together this year so will be formidable opponents. For our own progression a win is vitally important I feel particularly with the trip to Tullamore next week.

I assume Cha is fine to play as he's a real leader for this team. If they show the same agression and application as the Galway game they have every chance of getting the vital 2 points.

Lets hope it's a win and an injury free encounter.

Great crowd the last day in O'Moore Park albeit a good porportion from Galway. Hopefully the Laois supporters come out tomorrow and give these lads a boost. It would also be great if we had a goal or two to shout about!

A Kerryman with strong Laois connections.

Sure Crosbie had our best footballers sent to Kerry in the 17th century. No wonder Kerry are so good, it's the Laois bloodline

Will Cha be playing for CarlowIT today? If so I hope he's available for Saturday against Antrim.
