O’Carroll in for Dowling aswell. Hopefully a decent score got and forwards start clicking.
It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail

Just home from the game in Carrick on Shannon
first fifteen minutes of each half Laois showed some improvement from Last week, they were much more direct and played with a purpose. Could have and should have been out of sight before half time and went in 5 points up after the first half, leitrim missed a penalty(saved by Briody) so we could have been only 2 points up.
Ehe second halv for fifteen to twenty minutes we took complete control of the game and at the same time missed at least 4 very score-able goal chances, and had a lead of 14 points at one stage, then we invited Leitrim back into the game Briody made one of his trips up the field and ended up beside the Leitrim goalkeeper. Leitrim broke and senced a chance and punished Laois with a goal after that Leitrim out scored Laois 3 goals and 3 points to 4 points, Laois looked in a lot of trouble when Leitrim run at them.
Full back line Fennell showed well and Nurney at times the half back line were all at sea at times Midfield J.O'L. held his own and the pitch did not suit the running from O'Reilly (he will undoubtably have many better Days. The two wing forwards could have contributed more they lost a lot of good Poscession. Paul Kingston overall had a good game. Walsh and O'Carroll both had good games and when Munnelly was introduced he created a lot of space which Laois should have made more on the score board from. Good experience for the younger Players but when Laois have a team on the rack they need to be more ruthless and drive on. The management possibly Learnt more about the team than the did in the whole game against Limerick and the first 45 minutes against Leitrim. another two points on the board with an away win so we can look forward to next week. Well done to all and it is great to see such hard work been done by all to the cause.

on the hop

A win is a win. Should have been far more as our forwards really had the run on their backs. The sloppiness in a 15 minute spell in the second half allowed them to be a lot closer than they should have been. You could blame it on the changes which resulted in the complete lack of shape but brody's  run and loss of ball which resulted in Begley getting injured and them getting a goal gave them a kick start. This resulted them attacking in waves and a further two goals followed. Sugure in his interview didn't seem to worried about the turnover, blaming more on a mistake on the forwards but you would have to wonder why is your keeper near the opposition goals. There are problems to work on, the looseness of the defence and the kicking of wides before carlow and Antrim are encountered and it. Not a great day for the defence. Fennell was solid and Collins took his goal well. Begley saved our bacon a few times and wasn't bad at full back, his man did score a few. I have no idea what the plan with Holland was. He lined out at centre back and appeared to follow his man around the field. Dillon was ok but nerney had a tough day, played his man from the front and got caught several times.  It's brace when it works out. The changes made the defence worse off. Jol was our only source of kickouts till Lillis came on. Reilly was cleaned by a much bigger man especially in the second half. He is athletic but is not a midfielder. Paul Kingston was good, not a good day for Glynn, while you could say Farrell tried hard. Again the changes here did not improve things. At different stages the full forward line did well. Realistically and mentioned in the interview they could and probably should have had a bigger score. Ross came on and bagged two points and will be putting Lowry under pressure who isn't sparkling at this level like he is doing at sigersion. We will need Timmons and attride back. No sign of Kingston yet but colm murphy did a heavy session before the game. Interesting to hear what others thought of sugure' s comments about Kingston

The message from John Sugrue is very clear, and its the right attitude. Its entirely up to Donie now. I wonder will he knuckle down? There must be a big doubt that he will.

Not long home had few pints after it with few laois die hards ...not easy for the lads not drinking and driving us home with our merry analyses  ha ha

 hard to know what to make of that game ...when we were in full flow we looked levels above them ..

When we got sloppy we looked like a team short on confidence and a game plan

Brody summed it up ...an unreal peno save when we were well on top ,but taking the ball up that far and loosing it gave them hope although to be fair to him he is probably one of our  more pacey attacking options .

The Begley injury shook the team and we were sloppy in that period .


Plus points
Walsh is on fire
Jol was solid and looks focused
Collins was good

P kingston is becoming more influential

Lills and munnelly were decent and have much to offer

We need timmons and attride back in the backs .

Darren strong could becan option at half forward give Brody more options from the kickout

Happy with another win in what is a horrible little ground

Roll on home advantage next week
LAOIS ABÚ

Its time for Donie to realise that the ship is sailing on his potential. Its time to get on board, or be another great "what if". No one can do it for him. There'll be no more smoke blown up his hole. This is big boy shit now.

In a not unrelated piece, worth a read

Actually think it is a bit amateurish for John to call out Donie publicly. No harm behind closed doors but not great man management to mention in an interview.

Bullshit. More of the mollycoddling. We love a bit of that here in Laois.

Donie is back near enough a month at this stage. I can't imagine Sugrue hasn't said it to him in person already. If he's not getting the reaction he needs out of him, then he has to try whatever means available to get him going. It's not like he slated him anyway, he just said he needs to work harder in training.
