Laois / Re: 2019 Joe McDonagh Cup
« on: June 18, 2019, 11:48:33 PM »
Everyone probably already knows this but let's post it:

Weekend 6/7 July
All-Ireland preliminary quarter-finals
Dublin v Winners of Westmeath v Laois
Cork v Losers of Westmeath v Laois

Weekend 13/14 July
All-Ireland SHC quarter-finals
Leinster beaten finalist v Cork/Joe McDonagh Cup runner-up
Munster beaten finalist  v Dublin/Joe McDonagh Cup winner

Win it and play Dublin who we shouldn’t fear,if you got to a quarter final you’d fear for our lads,but still would be great to get there

Joe is not the same player, injury and the amount of years playing top level hurling has taken its toll, he’ll never get back to that level again I fear, I could be wrong though.

but he’d be an unreal sub to bring on


You clearly didn’t see any of the league where he was the best hurler in the country

Playing him in a sub role?

Laughable comment

Ok, league is for playing in, I’ll judge him this year come championship, he’s unreal but I feel he’s had a long go at such a high level club and county that he like most, he  will dip in form.

So your now predicting a dip in his form when does come back?

Is that in the sub role you’ve assigned for him?

🙄

Odds I found today, 21 May:

Tipp 11/4

Cork Galway Limerick all 9/2

Kilkenny 5/1

Clare 13/2

Wexford 20/1

Dublin 33/1

There’s a bit of value to be had with KK

Leave Hurling alone FFS

If it’s not broken don’t fix it

Instead of pricking around with this non issue,instead focus on getting the likes of Carlow,Laois,Kildare,Meath,Westmeath up to a point where they can compete with the top 8 or 9

And for the love of god,will someone stage an intervention with Offaly hurling

I don't like this talk of intervention - look at where that got us with the injection of funds into Dublin !

The best means of improving "2nd tier" hurling counties is for these counties to engage top coaches from established counties
- obviously there needs to be raw material to work with and top coaches are not two a penny.
Examples where this has worked in the past:
Dermot Healy was key to Offaly's breakthrough in 1981
Georgie Leahy, RIP, did great work with Laois in the 1980s.

I wasn’t suggesting a Dublin sized financial support for Offaly,they’ve already had a bailout in relation to O’Connor Park

Best outside coaches cost money,the money needs to spent at grassroots level in terms of more GDA’s and support for hurling in those counties

Healy would have had very little to work with at adult level if the likes of Bro.Dennis hadnt done the work at juvenile level and post primary level
