A few thoughts on the league campaign.

Thought we really played as an organised team last Saturday. Super scores in first half. Dillon was outstanding in defence. Pigott is a raw, tough defender with a lot of potential. In Attride's speech,he complimented Sugrue's enthusiasm. Midfield worked well together.

Sugrue is developing a stronger panel. He has blooded a lot of new guys especially in defence- Nerney, Fennell,Holland, Pigott. Trevor Collins was involved last year and is improving this year. Timmons did well in both games against Carlow after returning. Dillon looks good in corner back. Good to see Damien O'Connor and Booth warming up with the team last weekend. Attride is a super captain. For me, Colm Begley has been immense, great experience.

Brody helps organise and instruct the defence.

In terms of midfield, Lillis and Johnno doing great. Anyone know if Brendan Quigley is due back from injury??

Forwards: Alan Farrell is a workhorse. Glynn has done well in last 2 games. Ross turning back the years, what an example to the younger fellas. Big Donie getting back to full fitness. Gary Walsh on fire throughout the league. Hopefully Evan O'Carroll recovers from injurysoon, same with Paul K who had a fine league at centre forward. Good to give Benny Carroll game time.

Daniel O'Reilly has great pace. I wish him a speedy recovery.

Eoin Lowry had a great 2nd half last Saturday. Lots to be optimistic about as we head towards championship. 6 weeks we play Wexford. We need to aim for a Leinster semi final against possibly Kildare.

Hopefully Paul Cahillane will be ready to step in soon. Guys will get back to the clubs and improve durability for championship.

Watched Armagh/Fermanagh and not much difference in standard. Longford almot got promoted from division 3 and we bet them twice last year. In terms of division 3, it would be nice to get home games v Down and Sligo- the rest are Leinster teams anyway!

Bigger crowds going to see Laois this year. LOads of youngsters in Croke Park. Good few former county players in Carlow last week. THe only game I didn't make was London but I understand it was a bit of a festival over there. The opening game against Limerick had a feel good factor about it. New era.

We beat Leitrim easily away bar a blip and showd good character v Waterford after a shaky start. Against Wicklow, it was over at half time.

Laois are on the up I feel and I can't wait for championship. Lets hope we have lots of support in championship. The players deserve it. Laois ABU

Very best wishes to Daniel O Reilly for a speedy recovery. Puts the whole thing in perspective.

Lol.

Was it he named the player? Or was it his truncated syntax?

How come footballing counties celebrate like mad (and rightly so) after winning a division 2, 3 or 4 league title and yet when a tiered championship system is mentioned they are annoyed.

Post from former Kilkenny keeper David Herity on twitter.

Interesting thought. What would the feeling be here on Laois playing in a second tier comp? What re our aims now in the championship, beat couple of teams our own level and bow out graciously to a higher division team? Isnt that pointless? Why couldn't we be in a competition, div 3 & 4 teams, with a realistic ambitions of winning it? We have no chance, nor do most teams of winning Sam. Not right now anyway.

The Tommy Murphy Cup was blackguarded, it definitely had the right idea. Needs marketing, All Stars, and a big day out on All Ireland weekend. I'd not be against it, but I'd still like a crack at Leinster at the very least.

Thoughts with young Danny O'Reilly who still remains in a critical condition.

Likewise I really hope he recovers fully and quickly and that whoever is at fault is punished.

Just one small point, media is reporting that his condition is serious rather than critical. They are quite different. Sorry for being pedantic as I know that wasn't the purpose of your post.

Part of me is wondering if this is part of the fall out from Saturday. I really hope not because this is on a different level. Best wishes to the lad for a speedy recovery. As someone said, it puts it all into perspective.

I'm nearly sure he was reported as being in critical condition on the News at 1. I understand your point though!

Seems like it is part of the fall out from Saturday according to this facebook post from Dublin GAA Fans page.
