Bullshit. You can't just wash your hands of a very good man. New chapter me hole. This sort of talk is unrealistic and fanciful. We can't afford to sleepwalk out of a successful period, lose players and a good manager, and expect everything to go on as normal. I wouldn't want to be disrespectful to some players, but some of them are nowhere near good enough. It's hard to make that point without naming names, and I won't do that. But just because you're on a panel does not necessarily mean you can contribute to it.
I know what your saying high fielder . There is a lot of lads on this Panel not good enough but what other choice do we have ? Personally I think if we still had Sugrue as manager we wouldn’t survive in division 2 anyway . Look what Meath and Cork done with us ? The only half decent teams we played last year .

We fucked up with Sugrue. Somehow. We had momentum and he was a good judge. There are varying reports about who was at fault or the reasons for his departure, but from a purely coaching viewpoint, things were settled. Someone has shown a lack of ambition, and whoever that is has changed our direction. I'm not sure what we're really all about at the moment if we can't seem to motivate ourselves to stay part of a winning set-up.  I find it absurd that good players would get us up to Division 2 and then walk away and hand it over to inferior players. That makes no sense to me at all.

What do you think of our new jerseys for 2020?

Not particularly impressed. The white hoop should be straight.

When Laois won the Leinster in 2003 there was no white hoop on the jersey  ;)

I would be a traditionalist too and would prefer to see a jersey with the hoop half way down. In these days of commercialism they will change the jerseys every so often and they need to change it somewhat. Still it would be good to see a design at some point that resembles the older jerseys.

Those 2003/2004 jerseys will be a collectors item in years to come. Still have mine packed away somewhere.

I liked the new jersey on first view, but the more I look the less I like it.   They have a body warmer feel to them which is awful.  I think I prefer the hoop on reflection.

I see where Gary Brennan and Jamie Malone aren't playing with Clare next year. Should improve our chances of two points a bit in that game anyway. Brennan in particular is a brilliant footballer.

Proposed League schedule:

26 Jan v Roscommon (A);
1 Feb v Armagh (H);
9 Feb v Cavan (H);
23 Feb v Clare (A);
29 Feb v Kildare (H);
15 Mar v Westmeath (A);
22 Mar v Fermanagh (A).
Dont expect much from the hyde. Should hopefully get the points vs Armagh. Cavan will be tough but not impossible. Clare should be picking up something. Kildare will be a good judge of two new management teams, would like to think we have a good chance of getting points. Would not like to be needing points going into the last two games, All the same there at our standard. Will be an interesting league campaign.
