    Athlone cup game

    Looking forward to a distraction from the league. Hopefully a good cup game.
    Athlone have done well against Shels and Ucd in recent games so might not be an easy tie to be fair. We have been playing quite well since the shels result so im still optimistic.

    What do any athlone fans think. Will yous have a full squad to pick from.

    i reckon we will either scrap a win by a goal or get hammered by 3,4 or even 5.

    if we play well and franco gorgescu and dave o connor gel with the team well we have a very realistic chance of getting something out of this game.

    we should of bet ye the last time we played ye and that is something to be positive about and we have drawn with shels and ucd in the last 3 games and we should of beaten ucd so hopefully we can pull it off.

    should be a good lot travelling from athlone so hope its a good game with a good result from our perspective

    good luck anyways lads

    Our travelling support is up and down but the league match against you we brought about 70 and I will be dissapointed if we dont get near the 200 mark for this one

    In our 9 games against you we have lost them all and failed to score in any of them. We are travelling under no pressure as everyone is expecting you to win.

    We brought half of them.

    As for our fans were were yours. Your at home and throwing money at players and wouldnt have taken enough on the gate to pay the officials. It is unsustainable and is Dublin City / Shels / Cork City waiting to happen.

    I was totally shocked when I heard the playing budget there. It is 14 times ours per week.

    As has been explained a thousand times over. Of course the money from the gates dont pay for the players. Thats the same for most of the clubs in the LOI. We have really good sponsorship that pays the wages. This sponsorship was guaranteed for 4 years. So there is nothing to worry about.

    Maybe they where but we are not Dublin City so i fail to see any connection (not trying to be smart by the way)

    Kirbs, williams and Conan have been great by and large all season. The team is finally starting to gel thank god. Our injury nightmare is coming to an end and the team is reaping the rewards of this.
