Must be a long time ago. I can't remember beating Meath in Tullamore in recent times. Our record there is terrible.

From a Laois perspective we would need Westmeath to win their last two games and for Antrim to beath Kerry while we also make sure to beat Carlow and Meath. That would put Laois joint second on 6 points with Antrim but should qualify based on head to head. I take it head to head is used when only two teams and score difference used if 3 teams are tied on the same points?

Very touch to be well beaten like that. It is good to hear that they continued to battle and didn't lie down. If we can continue to get 2 or 3 players from each minor team it is a good outcome.
They have another game in this stage and then it will be knockout from the quarters. Things change.

Yeh, Antrim would have to beat Kerry also. I think our scoring difference will be no use if more than 2 teams finish level. Best outcome is where Westmeath get 10 points and we finsih level with Antrim.
Have to beat Carlow in two weeks time so the break will be beneficial with injuries etc.
The Laois gaa mentality would drive ya nuts. How can we go North Antrim and win when we absolutely have to yet we cannot do it against the Westmeath or Kerry??

You want Westmeath to win all their games and we need to put a big score past Meath

A 1 point win, we'll take that. Jaysus they made it very hard in the end after being 5 points up going into injury time.

Only a point in it at the end but Laois get the win in Dunloy today. A glimmer of hope.

If you're following on Twitter 'Unit Updates' are much better than the official Laois GAA twitter page as they give scorers and a bit more info.

Laois doing very well at the moment 9 points to 6 up against the wind, Ross King is flying today. Need a win hear badly.

Is it correct that the game in Antrim is starting at 1.30pm?

Was going to drive up tomorrow but that's a very early throw in time. Must be about a 4 hour drive from Laois.

That was my point. Although I don't know the in's and out's of dealing with Croke Park I would have thought that any plans etc would have to come through official channels and therefore if the backing wasn't from within the CB then it wouldn't have a chance. I would assume the same would happen in any other county.

Surely it's up to the county board to push for funding and continue to do so until something happens. I fail to see how the powers that be could refuse financial aid if a workable plan is put before them and the right people are involved to manage it. As the saying goes where there's a will there's a way. Maybe the CB themselves weren't particularly enthusiastic about it as any funds would have to come through them I would imagine.

What are the thoughts on the Antrim game? They are unbeaten so far however only a few weeks ago we beat them on their own patch albeit the league. If we could get a victory we might still be in with a faint chance of getting second spot with 2 games to go.

What is the problem at the moment where we don't seem able to compete like the early games in the league. We had a right go at both Galway and Limerick. Have we completely done away with the short passing game because I haven't seen too much of it. Forwards seem to be playing as individuals and as much as we all like Cha he's taking on shots that are at best 50/50 at times. No cohesion going forward and very little interplay between the top six.

In the backs we've been hampered by injuries however the use of some of the subs is questionable. There is a fairly extensive management team in place and we had looked like we were improving but now look leggy and somewhat confused as a team.

Can we turn things around or do we say good bye and good luck to this years championship with a view to retaining our place in Joe McDonagh for next year.

On another note was it just the county board who forced Cheddar out or did the clubs have any say in the matter?

Absolute disaster down there. Man off and other two full backs off injured.
