Portlaoise well beaten in the final by New York. Great achievement to get there though.
New York would have a big oul pick!!

Should probably be a second club in New York.
Heard they have been poaching from Boston and Philadelphia too!

other forums that you and the like of you have managed to ruin down through the years...

He talks a lot of shite, but i'd like to take you up on that point. If it's LaoisTalk you are referring to, the only reason that finished was that it wasn't making money! Nothing to do with trolls etc

Calm down there Keyser, it's only a forum  :D. I think you might be getting a bit excited.


In a perfect Zen like state here. Thanks for your concern though  8)

Yeah. I thought what we needed in 2016, post Lillis, was a new manager with brains, like a Jim McG but cheaper. My opinion in a year has changed. Opinions change, you know? Now I'm realistic and know we simply don't have the players to challenge any team in Div 1 and most teams in Div 2. That's just realistic.

So you weren't realistic last year?
Or does that mean that you will be back here next year saying the same thing?
Or does that meant that (heaven forbid) you were too harsh on Mick Lillis?

As for Creedon, yeah he has been dissappointing. But some posters seem to just blame him without acknowledging everything else going wrong in Laois GAA.

A large number of posters are simply curious as to what value this man (who is well compensated) brings to the table.
The team are unfit, lacking in motivation, without any discernible game plan. He sounds defeatist every time he is interviewed. He brings NOTHING from what I can see.
There are lots of problems in Laois GAA. I don't recall a single poster here who ignores that. Creedon is not operating alongside these problems. He is one of the problems. That has become more and more apparent with every passing month.

My post about fitness wan't meant to defend Creedon. I'm pointing out that a lot of our players wont be at peak fitness because of injury earlier this season which is 100% true. It was meant to be taken at face value.

Face value. Ok. Name 3 players who have gone through the season uninjured and presently look fit?
We were relegated from Division 3. It's not like we were trying to compete with any of the top teams in the country. There was no reason why players couldn't have been "nursed" back with individual plans while other panel members were in "mid competition mode" during the league. I assume this happened.

Fellas haven't left the panel, I'll give you that. What else has Creedon improved?

I have no interest or connection to any particular manager but if you're a fan of Creedon it might be more convincing to point out the evidence of his successes rather than presenting excuses for his failure.

Ah, but you seem to have missed the point!
Tony is NOT a fan of Creedon, I repeat NOT a fan of Creedon. He is simply a realist amongst the dreamers. You see, he has the advantage of being able to see the bigger picture!

Have you ever trained, keyser? If so, what don't you accept about that? Clearly true. List what's false about it, in detail. the post is nothing to do with creedon.

Yes it is.
I'm not alone in finding this irritating.

Please refer to my post a few pages back.

EDIT;
I'll post it here for you.
You can add your latest post in too, if you like!


Tony:
Creedon wil be great, I'm excited.
Creedon needs to be given time, he'll work out.
Creedon is hamstrung by injuries.
Creedon should be judged on the championship.
Creedon can't correct 3/4 years of poor fitness levels overnight.
Creedon doesn't have the players, maybe Div 4 is our level.
Creedon isn't to be blamed for this we are terrible from top to bottom.
Creedon looks a bit better now in light of the Kildare- Meath result.

Give it a break.

A lot of our top players were injured for the real training in wintertime. It's really showing now in championship. We just don't have the endurance that we should have. 8-10 players were out at different times over winter and spring and most of them are starters now. It's not strange that we look like we're lacking in fitness at the latter stages of either half. First 20 mins of half, we're all good as endurance is good enough to go that level. We're struggling a bit in the legs and lungs after that.

I actually thought you had stopped.
I see you haven't

we faded in the last 10 minutes and almost got caught by a much fitter and slicker Wicklow team.

Dear God.
But alas, what you say is correct.

Once again, hats off to the people of Rosenallis.
We could all learn from them.
The clubs surrounding them certainly could.

Great. We get clancy in. Then what?

A miracle? Division 1within 3years with the most unpromising underage footballers in 30years?

You both have the answer. Well done. Brilliant. Forget all the important stuff. Just get clancy in and he'll turn water into wine with his couple years club management experience.

For a start we'd know that he actually gave a shite.
Secondly, the players couldn't appear less fit, less motivated or less prepared.
Thirdly, there would be a lot less money been driven out of the county and down the M8 in the boot of a car three or four times a week.
Finally, there may actually be a future in one of the managers mentioned above. There is no future in this spoofer. Giving him next spring to look good against Div 4 teams would be a big mistake.

We are in the Munster group with Tipp,Lk and the losers of Cork/Waterford,provided we overcome Carlow

We can be drawn against
Dublin
Westmeath
Kk
Losers of Offaly/Galway

First name drawn has home advantage,Draw next Monday morning on Morning Ireland

First drawn doesn't have home advantage as the teams are in 2 separate pots.


From the GAA website

"The first team drawn out will be given home advantage in most circumstances."

Can't see how that could possibly work with two different pots.

If we get Dublin I'd bet we will be away. Played at home 2 years ago

Considering the WX-KK game it put's our game V Wexford in a better light. Carlow will be a tough assignment no doubt, but I feel the home advantage should see us through by three or four points. To get Offaly in the following round should we win at home on June 24th would be fantastic. Dublin would not be a bad one to get either. IC hurling on the 8th of July looks plausible from here provided we avoid the heavyweights of Munster & Kilkenny.

I don't think we'd be anywhere near able for Dublin. Offaly be our only hope!
I presume we'd be away to Dublin? Parnell Park is fairly tight!

felt our management were quite naïve against Wexford in not counter acting Shaun Murphy.

I felt they were even more naive in how they chose to eventually counteract it!

felt our management were quite naïve against Wexford in not counter acting Shaun Murphy. Presuming everyone is fit id start the following team..
Rowland
Palmer
Bergin
Cleere
Whelan
Collier
Healy
Purcell
King
Downey
Cha
W Dunphy
Picky
Foyle
M Kavanagh

Collier centre back? That'd be a huge ask!
If Healy is back then Palmer probably has to go based on the last day.
Don't think Mark Kavanagh did enough to earn a spot either.
Interesting team though

Tony Forristal Hurling Draw.
Group 1
Wexford, Galway, Clare, Cork.
Group 2
Kilkenny, Limerick, Laois
Group 3
Tipperary,  Waterford, Dublin

Interesting that Laois are the only team here that wouldn't be a considered a top team. Admirable ambition. Are they strong enough for it?
