    Shamrock Rovers V Sligo Rovers NOW Tolka Park 18th July - Predictions

    Struggling badly now. We were miserable on our first trip to Tallaght at the start of the season, and if we're honest things haven't improved since.
    I'm hoping we can scrape a draw. A lot depends on keeping Twigg quiet. He only needs a sniff and he'll score. We're so shaky at the bag it's hard to see us doing it.
    Looking forward to seeing the new lads and hopefully they can shake us up a bit.
    It's soul destroying how we've collapsed compared to them this year.

    At least 3-0. I assume Ventre suspended for this one.

    This has 3-0 written all over it unless we can bring in some decent midfielders who are interested and will actually supply strikers with chances.

    I would guess it's pay at gate. There wont be a quarter as many Rovers (Sligo) fans lookin' to go to this one as there was in March.

    we will struggle but lets try to be positive. on sunday anyone that was in albania must admit they were wrecked and the team done the same travelling as us plus played a game. we need steel added to the team but we have not got it. i think cook has to improve his tactics(i hate being critical of him but) we play the same way every game. we cant score from corners or free kicks so we need to try something new. all our play is out wide with strikers chasing balls. we need plan B........................

    This is probably the most frustrating thing tbh. Ok, I can see why we are struggling defensively in comparison to last season. Now that I think about it, we really took last season's defense for granted. Coleman-Peers-Almeida-Butler. I wouldn't swap that for any other defense in the league. Against cork our defensive unit simply wasn't up to scratch, we just didn't have good enough players. But, surely to God we could learn how to take a bloody corner/free kick. It's bordering on ridiculous at this stage. Do they even practise them in training

    i agree and we are now being showen as a team that dos not have 2 wingers always in the game as they could sit back while butler or seamie bombed up the wing.

    Hard to be too optimistic about this one at the moment, hopefully we can come away with a score draw because I can't see Twigg not scoring for Shams against us. Anything out of this game would be a decent result because it's a real dogfight at the bottom. Pity they switched it to Friday, was planning to go otherwise.
    The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.

    Can see us being up for this one after the thumping in the showgrounds earlier in the season so reckon we will get a draw.

    Anyone know what the story is with tickets , is it safe to assume the novelty has worn off and its cash at the gate ?

    Lots of rumours on Shams forum this game will be moved to the Showgies due to health and safety problems with the temporary seating. Hope it's not true as it's not really fair on the club to have game at such short notice with no promotion done. Shams should get a fine for this if it happens.

    If it is changed, it won't be our decision, so we can't be held responsible.

    But surely with your fantastic super brilliant ground everything will be ok?

    If Shamrock can't fulfill their duties, and the game is switched to The Showgrounds, then surely there must be some kind of sanctions.

    It's your ground that has the 'health and safety issues' is it not(or at least ye like to claim it's your ground)? This Madrid friendly is being giving higher priority than a LOI game by the look of it, there should be some sort of punishment.
