Any thoughts on the U20's tonight?

Have we any chance against them?

\it'd on the TG4 youtube channel.

Cheddar did his Gaahour podcast with Wooly yesterday. I will miss his contribution but it's a fair trade off.

I have huge respect and admiration for Cheddar because he doesn't do this for himself he does it for Laois hurling. A selfless man, in fact it will probably cost him to manage the county.
He knows the importance of a successful senior county team and he will use that going round schools etc to raise interest in the game. An astute reader of the game and always looking to learn. I wonder could he coax Michael Dempsey in with him. I would say there are plenty who would be willing to work with Cheddar because they know they will get honesty of effort.
He has a much better panel to work with this time round as well. The young minors he had are bigger and better.

Delighted to see him back and in light of where we could have been this is great news.

Good post Keyser.

It would be great if Mick Dempsey could be brought in. Vast knowledge and experience and would command respect. The idea that he could get involved straight away and then maybe work with whatever manager is appointed makes sense to me but whether i does to Mick or the CB is another question.

I would agree that the underage set up should be prioritised but that's not the job of the senior county manager. His job is to look after the senior hurlers. The county boards job is to ensure that the underage structures are right. Can't see what the connection is or should be between between Eddie Brennan as manager and our underage set up?

I personally think Eddie would have given it another year due to how Covid messed this year up. He was looking forward to Laois playing the championship round robin which didn't happen.
I think he would have done another year if the 'off the record' never happened

I think we were hoping against hope that the off the record stuff would be ironed out and they'd soldier on. Players will be the most disappointed i'd say. Seemed to be a great bond there.

It's a very open championship and all teams would fancy their chances of winning the title.

Lets hope it's all worked out and Eddie stay's on. Also, a greater effort put into Primary schools to get young lads playing hurling in the likes of Portlaoise, Mountmellick and Mountrath where there isn't enough being done. We need kids playing in these urban centres.

Thanks for the heads up on the Laois People podcast with Cashin. A good keeper in his day.

Here is it for anyone interested in listening to it.

Wouldn't be expecting a reply but if there were a few hundred emails it might make lads think twice before any decisions are made!

It's easy for us to give our opinion here. Maybe CB members read it maybe they don't. If people are serious about wanting to hold on to Eddie Brennan or express their opinion on the matter then it makes more sense to email the CB directly. Not to have a go or slag them off but to put across their reason as to why Eddie should be kept on. They won't have much of an idea about any support for keeping him if it's just on Facebook, this forum or whatsapp.

That would be one high profile game but other years we would have drawn Dublin but then Leinster council would meet and agree that the game be played in Croke Park. Laois delegates were happy to go along with this for the additional revenue
