2018 NHL1B Round 1 - Dublin v Offaly: Croke Park, Saturday, January 27, 5pm - Eir Sport 2


#102

Big wind but the goal is disguising a poor performance.


#103

1-7 to 15


#104

We’re all over the place here. Offaly much the better team so far. Our touch, sharpness decision making way off. Maybe we need a few more early morning training sessions!


#105

Am I imagining it or are they bigger than us all over the pitch? We are winning no fifty fifty ball.


#106

Startled earwigs comes to mind .


#107

Offaly well worth their lead. Much better all over the pitch. Some very sloppy hurling from Dublin


#108

That exact point mentioned by Eir Sports commentary team.

Edit: Barratt & Crummy are comfortably handling the opposition thus far. No prizes for guessing why that is.


#109

16 to 1-8.
Dublin lose this and it will be a rough league


#110

Just in door from work and didn’t expect that half time score line. What’s going wrong here?
I’d imagine we should still push on and win this given the strength of bench also but a worrying first half.


#111

I’m general or just forwards?


#112

O Riain Broin the first example of that already. Lasted, what, 24 mins?


#113

In general. Horsed out of it. Defending is loose and desperate at times…can only get better…hopefully.


#114

0-16 points conceded to Offaly in 35 mins and that’s with a sweeper. Dear God!

Didn’t think things would go further south after last year but looking after that half that we’re now going backwards even quicker. We may turn it around in 2nd half but that first half was just dreadful.


#115

In general. Not winning enough puckouts and Offaly taking some fine scores out the field. No point in bringing Trollier on and not letting the ball into him in a two man FF line


#116

It’s like we have a preplaned set of play and are sticking to it no matter what. Offaly are well worth their lead.


#117

I may sound off my head but a perfect game for Keaney to be thrown in full forward in a 3 man full forward line


#118

A perfect game to stop the sweeper shite.


#119

Plus points.

Nolan save, Crummy point, Crummy (I think) horsing an Offaly lad out over the sideline.

I sound old school. Yis may just deal with it :grimacing:


#120

Maybe the positive Shite will stop now

16 points with a sweeper

Good god
