The amount of comments Ive seen online saying Offaly have hit a new low. Westmeath beat them by 14 points in championship in 2016. Mind you, comments werent from Offaly people.

Well if you believe they are motoring along rightly then grand. Outside looking in thats two defeats in a row, granted Kerry havent been as good as last season but that match will be tough in Kerry.

Things not looking good for Waterford. Offaly have been a long way off past glories for at least this decade. Antrim game a big test for them. Should have enough for Kerry. (Although bar 89 the buggers usually beat Antrim by a bit but hopefully not this year)

Id say Offaly and Antrim at similar level, was listening to the games on the radio yesterday and the co commentator was an Offaly man, he was fuming

Yeah it will be interesting to see. Still think they might be a bit ahead of Antrim but hope I am wrong.

Tipps usual lack of concentration showing again! How can they not just put the foot down and pull away?

Pulled away towards the end.

I think Jim Troy was the co-commentator and indeed he was fuming.
He summed up Westmeath's second goal something like this - "he walked in from 50 yards and could have had tay on the way".

Jim Troy would most certainly not be of the kind to do any media work. Plus, youd hardly understand him, with his mumbling voice.
Twas Joe Troy, a local part time journalist, fuel and oil salesman and all round hack.

That is a pretty comprehensive analysis of a team in crisis
And its without properly delving into the deeper problems, and their sources.

There is a chance they could win the two remaining games though. I'd say it's a decent enough chance. I hope they lose one of them though ;D
