    Game delayed due to floodlight failure. I see they are becoming accustomed LOI standards already!

    Was the strangest game I have ever been to, match was delayed in the first half for a half an hour by floodlight failure and the second half was delayed for about 5 minutes as a dog was chased around the pitch and Kildare were also wearing Mervue's away kit.

    Two absolutely savage goals by Hughes though

    The very one. Absolute shocking game of football. If thats the standard the bottom of LOI has fallen to God help us. There are better teams playing in the Galway league. Apparently, the kettles were turned on to make the half time cuppa and blew the mainn fuse!! I kid you not.

    Not that bad a game. Name a better footballing side in the Galway League? With a bit of evidence.


    Jerseys: Kildare said they were going to wear white, turned up with red kit.
    Floodlights: 6 Berkos(big kettles) that consume serious power overloaded the system. Situation not helped though by fact the astro turf facilities were also in use at the same time. Surely could have cancelled that for one night.

    I'd cancel the burco before the astro, to be honest! I know which would be bringing in more money.

    No that was Dave Goldbey who scored in the Showgrounds to relegate you!
    I phoned the speaking clock to hear a voice speak, it said - "At the tone you will be very much alone"

    How do you know, Mr. Maroon ? Have you asked them all ?

    Most United fans I know wouldn't loose any sleep over it.
