Laois / Re: OByrne Cup 2020
« on: January 15, 2020, 07:41:21 AM »
Healy will be in the team that finishes the league ....Mark my words

He may be 33/34 but he's still one of the best options we have ar corner-back considering the losses of Attride and Dillon this year. I wonder will Saunders be brought in as well to cover that position after U-20's finish campaign. He looks physically ready for senior inter-county football.

He might be wasted in corner back, he could also be slightly exposed as he would surly not have the same pace he once had. He is a terrifically experienced footballer and leader and I wonder would he have more influence on a game at centre back.

Great to have Healy back, a huge boost if he gets back fully fit.

I'm not sure and I hope I'm wrong . Healy hasn't played much football at inter county level the last few years and nowadays you just don't jump straight back into gear after been Away that long regardless of how well you look after yourself. Especially at the age of 32.
Its going to be very tough for him . I really hope I'm wrong.
Healy is 33. And will turn 34 this year.


There is no doubt he is gone past his prime and coming back from serious injury is difficult but if anyone can do its him.

The Girl in Cyprus ? Thatís a weird one

Would not be into the take photo or video culture, in this case it saved the Israelis. She was having a good time, after the shame kicked in

What happened?it was my understanding that she had consensual sex with 2 guys then a gang of lads wanted to join in and they either did or did not rape her. Is that not accurate? Then the police questioned her without a lawyer, put her under pressure and she said it was not true?

No middle ground on here, things are either amazing or chronic. Judging any side on their O'Byrne cup games is surely a fools errand. Longford beat Laois in the first round in 2003 and it did not turn out too bad.

Quirke will be judged on results in league and championship, there is no doubt they will be up against it in Div 2 especially with the loss of the Kingston brothers and Attride which are 3 of the teams best players but thats the way it is. Im sure the other Div 2 sides will probably see Laois as the most beatable but thats the challenge for our lads, we have earned the right to be there. The likes of Down, Westmeath, Fermanagh etc are hardly world beaters.

Jose in.  That was quick!!!

Obviously had him lined up already as it was unusual time to sack Poch. Looking back, considering Spurs history and financial constraints he has done an amazing job and it will be a lucky club that gets him next. Jose is a winner in terms of trophies but the guy is also toxic.

How do others feel about United going all guns out to get Pochettino? In my view he has done an amazing job at Spurs and did a super job at Southampton before that. He is proven at building sides under constraints which would make him ideal for the United job. Given his record he is an attractive option for Bayern Munich or maybe even Real Madrid if they get fed up of ZZ.

I dont think united will get rid of OGS though but he is a great manager imo and if they dont get him they will regret it, I think Spurs will regret sacking him also rather than backing him.

Realising players like Phil Foden for Man City were not even born when Man United won the treble makes me feel like time has passed me by and I am just 40

I live across the pond and am new to this story, it reached news over here since BBC spotlight shed some light on it. Can someone sum it up for me here if possible? Quinn Holdings is been attacked by criminals for what purpose? Who benefits or what is the overall goal?

The emergence of Murphy from Port last year on the inter county scene can lessen the damage of Donie s absence .
Thereís no one in Laois capable of filling the boots of an on form Donie. Was unplayable on his day .

Agree 100 %. He was the only player Cork struggled with. At his best, he is miles ahead of every other forward in Laois.

Donie reminds me of Paul Pogba for Man United, he occasionally shows glimpses that he can do things others cannot (very occasionally in Pogbas case) and we can see the talent is there but its demonstrated too fleetingly.  If he applied himself better he could easily be in the same bracket as Michael Murphy but until he does he will just be talked about on forums and on barstools of what he could have been imo.

Some of Laois best ever players were not necessarily the most skilful but the ones who applied themselves to being the best players they could be. Tom Kelly is a great example, he was not even the most skilful footballer in his own family and the year before Micko came along he was playing full back yet next year he wins an All star at centre back.

he also has an affect on the squad, everyone knows how talented he is but if he is not putting in the same shifts in training it can have a negative effect, something Sugrue seems to have tried to change.

Laois / Re: 2019 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship
« on: October 31, 2019, 10:20:37 AM »
Super achievement for a Laois player to even get nominated for an All Star at all considering they were one defeat away from heading for Christy Ring territory the previous year. This should whet the appetite for all Laois hurlers in the coming year and hopefully we can build on last year.

a simply disastrous set of fixtures, cannot see a home win coming....and if we end up bottom two, does this drop us to tier 2 of the championship?
Yes it will drop us to tier 2 , unless we get to a Leinster final which would allow us to compete in tier 1

Hardly a disastrous set of fixtures, all the teams are of a similar standard imo. Surely if we are good enough we could beat the likes of Westmeath, Fermanagh or Cavan.

Im no fan of the tier 2 stuff but if Laois cannot stay in that division or get to a Leinster final then they do not deserve to compete at that level.

The new ruling will mean this will be the most competitive league season of all time.

Midfield is championship level along with Pogba who doesn't want to be there. Biggest mistake was selling Herrera who was providing leadership in the middle of the park and not replacing him. Fred signed for 50 million has become the latest Brazillian flop alongsie Anderson and Kleberson.

It's worse than that. At least if they'd sold him they could've gotten a bit of money out of it. They let his contract run down and he walked away for nothing. But Woodward et al. still made sure to find the time and money to offer contact extensions to Young, Smalling and Jones in the last 12 months. Nothing the club has done in the last five years makes any footballing sense. There is no vision for the future beyond sourcing the next noodle or mattress partner. It's a broken football club.

This is the only squad that really matters to those that run the show:

Also I would love to see a list of united players wages, it seems every player is on silly wages including young players like Rashford and poor players like Phil Jones something that did not happen under Ferguson era, it seems to be a really bad run club on the football side of things that is for sure.
