Regarding both Munnelly and Begley who are were and are both 2 fantastic servants to Laois football , I don't believe the loss of these two players are that crucial to the first 15 . Having them around the panel without doubt can only be positive given there experience but I'd more worried about John O'Loughlins loss for the next two or three games !

Would agree with unlaoised assessment . We are not in the position as a county to be overlooking players in form . Yes Lillis is correct in saying Lowry did not have the best of championships but surely he's worth a place on hen Senior panel . Seen him  twice this year and on both occasions looked impressive .
Kieran Lillis certainly made a difference when he arrived on the field on Sunday and I can see a lot of positional changed for crossmaglen on Saturday night . Laois always bring a decent following up there so hopefully the same will happen this weekend .

 A successful year for many counties is not about winning Sam .
Very early to start judging just yet but the next 3-4 games will tell us a lot about this current regime . Laois looked looked extremely disorganised yesterday but let's wait and see what the next few weeks bring . The league generally can tell how a team takes shape for a year and how much influence the manager has !

Carlow were poor indeed , the poorest I have seen them in a very long time . Laois can only beat whats in front of them and they did so without ever been tested truthfully . Kingston is delivering for Laois and this is  the year when he can become a big star .
Our record against Kildare in recent years is awful . They will pose a serious threat . I am sure Donie will  be in for some treatment but hopefully he can manage it . My worry is we are weak on the sideline in some key positions and also the fact Jason Ryan is a championship manager .With Wexford his focus was always championship and his record was good including a All Ireland Semi Final appearance . Regardless of the turmoil and unhappiness in Kildare with him you dont become a bad manager over-night. It will be closer this time between Laois and Kildare but I do think Laois with Donie Kingston to the fore will just have too much for Kildare .

McMahon not back till maybe early June . Meredith  returning will be a boost for sure  but cant see him starting Saturday night . Positive vibes coming from training and it will be interesting to see the set up we adapt against Carlow who usually give Laois something to think about . The loss of Murphy and Gannon is a blow though .

Yes support will be vital Sunday week as Westmeath will surely have a big following as the bandwagon starts to roll . Make no mistake this is going to be incredibly tough but I just wonder how the favourites tag will suit Westmeath .. They have been generally underdogs against Laois and this will be the first time in a long the roles will have been reversed .
Laois looked tired to me on Sunday .This was seen in many ways throughout the 70 mins including the poor first touch and constant lapses of concentration . A huge amount of work has been undertaken with this group of players and I expect it to pay off in the coming weeks starting with a win over Westmeath .
