    Galway United 0-1 Limerick (Ogbene)

    Ogbene is a great discovery by Limerick, can't stop scoring.

    Presumably there was a referee and assistants for the game?





    Maybe that's the marketing whizz to re-ignite the league - stimulate interest by banning spectators?

    GENIUS. Ban the fans and people will be dying to go. It'll be just like prohibition in the States.

    Seriously though, said on our forum that the behind closed doors decision was Liam Buckley's. Have no idea how true that is.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Jesus the two goals we conceded were shockers. I know it's only pre-season but Robbie and Kelly were caught way too deep for the first and then the second one not a tackle to be seen and lads not sticking to their own men.

    Holy sweet feck, that defending was non-existent.

    At the moment I'd say our saving grace is that you see defending like that fairly regularly in this league. More defenders coming in this week though and needed badly.

    They don't even look like they are trying for that 2nd goal

    That's the kind of defending you get when you decide to go 3 at the back without ever practising 3 at the back and then sticking your totally right footed right back at left back and then the left of the back 3. Hopefully that's one experiment that is never seen again.

    Ah it's rarely ever that bad, at least not in the Prem. That was appalling!

    Your saving grace is that it still only pre-season, so players aren't fully fit and teams are probably tinkering with new players/systems.

    Dundalk 2-0 Longford. Dundalk had a fella on trial who's played 68 times in the Dutch top flight. Mixed performance from him, clever player but looks a bit off the pace. Don't know will he be given the time to catch up by Stephen because the rest of the squad are In incredible shape, even the underage players slotted in effortlessly towards the end. Slight concern over the goalkeeping position with Sava Going down the tunnel injured and Rodgers already out, could see young Kelly play the PC game against Cork on Friday.

    Was the Dundalk/Longford game not a LSC game? Surely no trialists allowed in that I would have thought? I could be massively wrong here, apologies if it was a standard friendly.

    This was a friendly match El P, I think it was the last friendly of the pre season.

    We have already taken the monumental step into the last 8 of the venerable Leinster Senior Cup by overcoming St Patricks CY last week

    Naming a "trialist" in the team sheet is a rather quaint idea - his identity was readily available on Social Media before he even kicked a ball

    Was refreshing to see a players actually name rather than trialist A on the team sheet last night, not sure who decided that as on the twitter account dundalk listed him as trialist A

    I thought the Trialist brothers had signed for Cork?

    Cabinteely 1-0 Finn Harps

    Kieran Marty Waters with the goal.

    We're definitely going down and Paddy McCourt is the worst player in history.
