I like the medal of honour idea whatever way it was packaged and presented. Services to Laois GAA, honourary member, lifetime achievement etc. These lads should definitely never have to pay into O'Moore Park for as long as they want to go to Laois games.

There are others but not too many who have been involved for 15 years or more.

Most has been said about the game. We got through in the end and that's what matters.

Hopefully with the calendar and matches back in place next year we'll have 5 league games and another 5 games in the championship. We will need a strong panel and maybe we'll get a couple of wins and not be fighting relegation again.

I was listening to the hurling GAA hour and Conal Keaney mentioned that there was talk of the players going to management to change things up and go more attacking after the Wexford result. I hadn't heard anything bout it but in fairness if management is prepared to sit down and discuss the issue with the players and they change the set up it has to be a good thing surely, no?

Laois man, of the players involved last Saturday, starting 15 + subs, who should have been in there instead?

Based on P Purcell's two championship games I would be surprised if he isn't nominated fro an All Star.

I hope that performance shuts up some of the nay sayers and anti Cheddar brigade.

A little more cuteness from certain players at various times during the game could have got us over the line. The one thing that can be said though is that every player left everything out on the pitch in what was a bruising encounter.

There were times when one of our lads could have and maybe should have gone down and get themselves a free. A couple of times just a lack of composure gave the possession away.

Hopefully they get themselves back on their feet fro the game next weekend. Westmeath have some fine hurlers however if we are mentally right for the game we should have more than enough for them. Cheddar was at pains to let them know that after the game, they have to dust themselves down and redouble their focus.

AS someone stated above we have a decent panel there now if we keep the moving in an upward direction.

I do.

Can't see them being beaten by that amount.

I think the spread is generous but then again fools and their money.

Still if the same fight is in Laois as against Antrim they won't be losing by that score.

Bookies giving Laois +14 points at 10/11. Can't see Laois being beaten by 14 points more than.

A similar performance as Clare last year will do rightly. How many of the Waterford injured players are back?

This craic about supporting the weaker counties. Why wasn't Laois given home advantage for the game Saturday?

Beaten by KK by 14 points in the minor round robin in 2018.

Good to see that we've improved through the age groups which is a good sign.

U'20 grade is far more important for transition to senior.

Pity they couldn't get the win. It would have been a mighty boost for hurling.

Had a conversation with someone over the weekend about the state of Laois football and particularly the manner of the defeat to Westmeath.

Are we as well off going down the route of having 15 to 20 athletes who can run for 70 minutes. That's the way football is being played. Fair enough you also need lads who can kick ball but at the moment we have no marquee players coming through, no star forwards. Donie is at the back end of his career and Evan O'Carroll has lived up to his potential.

The point being made was get the most dedicated, athletic but not necessarily the most talented footballers together and get a manager who can work them into a system.

The second half collapse against Westmeath and also Down in the relegation play off is worrying. Was it fitness or is it a mental issue? or a bit of both.

At the moment we are a 35 minute team and have looked clueless in the second half of most games when the intensity increases.

Great result and a really gutsy performance. They fought like dogs and there is room for improvement.

Paddy Purcell will be sore after taking a couple of big hits. Great leadership from him and his goals were very important, particularly the second one.

PJ Scully impressed too and he's grown into his roe with the county. Two great sideline cuts, one from either side of the pitch. Like the rest of them he never stopped running.

Waterford a big step up but like Clare last year we just need to be confident and do the same again. As Cheddar says ' Foot to the floor hurling for 70 minutes.
