Down v Laois
« on: July 05, 2009, 06:14:04 PM »
Happy days.
Repeat of last years game at the same stage of the qualifiers. Could go either way, but you would hope for a win and build a wee bit of momentum.
Will Clancy be in the running for an oscar after this one?

If able to fix a draw for Down, it wouldn't have been far off the first pick.

Unbelieveably, we could see August football against at this rate.

Just glad we avoided Kerry, anyone else is beatable on the day. The media will have Monaghan v Derry as the tie of the round, but I reckon it will be a repeat of last nights game when Monaghan OutArmaghed Armagh.
The Down v Laois game should be an open entertaining game of football, neither team can defend, but they know where the posts are.

Clancy will het a hostile reception thats for sure...

So the match is definitely in Newry next Sat night then??

8 into the match last night was very reasonable.

No reason why Down can't win this game and push on for the next week...

Any updates on Liam Doyle?

Venues and times are to be confirmed tomorrow. Down were out of the hat first because they came through the round one qualifiers. Laois were in a different bowl as a beaten provincial semi finalist. It could be a neutral ground, although Down obviously had to go to Portlaoise at the same stage last year.

Would have thought that all the games will be neutral or there'll be a toss for home advantage if both teams agree. Don't think last year's venue would come into it.

You really are a c**k sometimes.

At least these teams are still in the draw, take your bitterness elsewhere.

True, we're not as good as we were a couple of years ago but I'd still like to think we could beat the mighty London!

Actually we have new DVD about our encounters with Down since the late 90s. Its entitled "A decade of dominance".  ;)

Think Down might take this one actually. Nothing to suggest Laois have improved since Down beat them last year.

God I hope so, I'd love for them to hang on to Ross and DJ.  Whatever they're doing, it's fantastic.   :D


(I actually do think Down will win)
