I see Laois GAA put up a video of past glories and how we are getting excited for the weekend lets take a reality pill folks  If anyone in Laois is getting excited about a Division 4 final they have very little to be worrying about. Its a shambles that Laois were ever in D4. Effectively scrapping past Carlow, London& Waterford along with conceeding 3 goals against Leitrim, Where is the ambition gone? Showing the videos of the past, being in D1 and Leinster Championships is ridiculous. Understand Laois on a road to recovery but I wont be celebrating a D4 win I can assure you. It is purely expected at minimum. Next year is where we start seeing where Laois are at, and the year after that, year after that...
Arrah would you f**k off you dry auld fecker. These players need to make their own history. Past glories in Laois are fleeting, we think we're this superpower in hibernation, we've spent far more time at the bottom of hill/halfway up than we have at the top. Not even an f**king All Ireland to our name. Jesus, where would we be got.

Hope Sugrue goes with a full strength team and they use the wide open spaces of Croke Park to tear into Carlow. I'd like to see

Brody, Attride, Timmons, Farrell (sweeping), Piggott, Begley (holding the middle) Dillon, Johnno, Lilis, Glynn, P Kingston if fit, O'Reilly, Kingston, Walsh and Evan if fit

Any update on Conway, Quigley, Murphy, Damien O'Connor?

GAA Smart, we're not "getting excited" that we're in a league final. We're just pleased with the progress being made. True supporters will follow a team through thick and thin. We hit rock bottom last year, and we're pleased that we're on the way back up again. I hate that cynical attitude that a lot of ye have. Some good progress is being made and all involved deserve our support. We're all in this together as being part of the Laois GAA community. If they players had the same attitude some of ye have, half of them wouldn't have turned up this year as "it's only division 4". We'd be in some mess then. If you only support us and go to matches when we're managed by Micko and in Leinster finals, well you're not a true supporter really are you. We need all the support we can get Sunday and in this years championship. It really does make a difference when a game is tight. I've seen us lose in recent years when the other team has a 16th man cheering them on, outnumbering us by about 10 to 1. It's that kind of attitude that has us outnumbered.

Might be better to go Saturday but I suppose if you wear blue and white you could get away with supporting Cavan :-) ;-)

Quigley getting it very hard to shake off his injury. Doesn't sound good.

This is the crux of it. We are not playing any better this year than we did last year (and in some respects the performances are even worse). The fact that we're scraping a few victories against London and Waterford is not an indication of improvement.

Four years ago ...Jesus we had some amount of chances in the first half and played some stuff...

Merdith Conway and Finn would be a boost to the ranks this year.....

Don't watch the second half!!! :-)

I think that might been Brody's debut I could be wrong!

Interesting did he do well he must be near a place on the panel

Booth is in contention as well for this weekend!

It could be a week too soon for Paul Kingston!

If Cavan were playing that might be a good idea mate, they're playing the next day. It's us, carlow, armagh and fermanagh on sat. :P

So your only a supporter if you put with any old crap thrown at you, listen to yourself the bandwagon is what this county needs.  I don’t care when they started following Laois hopefully supporters do get carried away by a league final and are hungry for more success because if what’s happened over the last few years is a qualification to be a supporter then you would want locking up.  Roll on the band wagon bring cash we need it.
