    Curran was very quiet, have a feeling he could be quite frustrating at times. Walsh is a touch of class, loves to step out and pass it and he's solid as anything, especially in the air. Scored a clever back header.

    Don't think Raf is injured (well not seriously). Yeah I don't think the pre-season has gone too well but I generally don't read too much into pre-season. Have seen us have good seasons after bad pre-seasons and vice versa.

    Dundalk were beaten 2-0 by Espanyol B this morning.

    Michael Duffy made his debut, while Paddy McCourt played as the lone striker.

    I assume that was to ensure McCourt had to do as much running as possible rather than some tactical innovation? He never struck me as a potential target man.

    I'd say it is to assess whether he could cover that position as Dundalk only have two recognised strikers in the squad.

    McMillan rarely pays as a target man anyway.

    True. he's not a target man in the sense that they launch high balls up to him, that's not Dundalk's style, but I was struck by just how good McMillan was last season in the european games with his back to goal. Especially the home matches against BATE, Legia and Maccabi he was outstanding at taking the ball in, shielding it and then bringing the advancing midfielders into play. Maybe I'm wrong but I doubt McCourt could ever play that role.

    That's exactly the strength of McMillan, playing almost a 'five a side' role with quick one touches on the ground, back to goal, then quick turn to time his run into the box. He just needs to be a little bit more clinical, but overall he's a very important player to how Dundalk play, it was definitely a worry that he wouldn't sign for this exact reason.

    SK seems to be taking his time to decide about McCourt, that's for sure. The match itself sounded like a decent workout for Dundalk, then again what's not to like about the Barcelona region anytime of the year.

    Cork lads, are you boys heading abroad for pre season ? I think I read that only Dundalk and Rovers are abroad this pre season?

    LTFC crush Finn Harps 2-0. Alan Mathews sent to the stand for roaring "Nobody can beat us" at the fourth official.
