Still the best footballer in Offaly by some distance.

Possibly - but is he fit and/or not over the hill?

Maybe but the Mullinalaghta boys are otherwise engaged so a few points could be the difference

Was struggling with an injury, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the 26 on Sunday.

Half time scores

Louth 3-4 Laois 1-6
Carlow 1-6 Westmeath 1-4
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Very surprised at Louth beating Laois..............astonished even.

Maybe Laois are no effin use cos Louth sure-as-shootin were cat altogether last Sunday.

Westmeath riding their luck...............can't last forever.

Maybe Carlow will be the surprise packet in Div 3 this year.

It suggests that Down are useless, which has to be welcome news.

A draw was just about a fair result...slightly entertaining game but it was low on quality played in fairly miserable conditions. Both sides guilty of awful wides.....

Crowd was poor enough but the weather would have kept folks in.

Off to Carlow next week where I'm sure we'll see more sweepers than are employed by Longford County Council.

A right punch in the gut to concede a goal at the death when hanging on for the win, another one to thank our magnificent keeper for. A much improved display from last week in difficult conditions but with nothing to show for it it's looking a tad bleak from here. The red card for Hughes looked rather harsh too, will be a loss given he did reasonably well today.

Carlow are the new black death, horrible to play against. We didn't do ourselves any favours, gift wrapped them a goal in the first half and when they were there for the taking in the second half we made some awful decisions in front of goal where a little more composure and shot selection would have seen us comfortably over the finishing line. The Fish caught some fantastic balls out around the middle and needs to be released from the shackles of the full back line. The referee was consistently inconsistent, lost complete control of the match early on. Kieran Martin's first yellow wasn't even a relation of a free, never mind a card, woeful altogether. Hopefully get better officiating next Sat, looking forward to Newry under lights.

Laois were guilty of under estimating Louth starting with arguably their bestv5 players on the bench ...
Then they conceded soft goals because of an inexperienced full back line ..Then red card was harsh and meant a comeback would be nigh on impossible .

Louth deserved the win but I'll be very surprised if Laois don't finish 4-6 points in front of them
