    I'm hoping to get up there and I'd say there will be a fairly large town following but A point would be adecent result but going into a derby your always thinking how nice the 3 points would be and I just have that feeling that we could stuff them 3-0 but that's just a feeling.

    Will be there myself, and I'm expecting a performance, especially after our shambolic effort there earlier in the season. Surely Cousins will have them fired up for this one, can't be finishing below Athlone.

    Normally I'd be looking got a good performance too but I honestely don't care how we play tonight because local derbys are all about getting 1 over on your rivals and if we beat athlone tonight that's all that matters CMON DE TOWN DE REAl TOWN LTFC!!!

    What I think is so funny about Longford Town 'supporters' and I use that term reservedly, is that they think finishing above Athlone Town equals a successful season. And by what I'm hearing, its that hand of god that I wasn't there for the Mervue match, because beatings would have been dished out to those ******* in the stand.

    I for one will be at it too... I hope town got a deserved kick up the hole from last week...Unbelivably town havent won since the Finn Harps game.. I think it will be a tough game to win so I will go for a 2-2 draw. I have no confidence in this town team at all. There are too many players with big reputations that are not pulling their weight..

    It's not a successful season to just finish ahead of them, but it'd just be annoying to finish below them.

    Crap game , decent result as most would have taken the point going in and the away support was fairly large so all in all not a bad night and let's just enjoy the rest of the season.

    Take a point against a team that are below us in the table? We have to be beating the likes of Athlone if we're looking to go forward.

    How we didn't beat them I don't know. They barely got out of their own half, and were content with the draw from about the 60th minute on. Phil Byrne's goal should have stood as well. Sickened with the draw tbh.

    I couldnt understand it too outspoken.. linesman was shockin bad.. As for poor Don Cowan will he ever score as he hasnt got off the sheet yet.. We have 31 points now last season we got 36..if we somehow got five points from our last three games it will be progress in my book but I think it will be three draws..

    We only got 29 points last season marthino , as for poor old don he surley has to get 1 before he more than likley returns to rovers, he is 1 of the best ball holders I have ever seen if u get the ball within 10 yards of him he will get it and hold it up for as long as he has 2 because he is just so fast and so strong. It's frighting to think he's only in his early 20's. The one down side to his strength is the referees never seem to give him frees he was manhandeled vs mervue and got nothing and there were a few last night but what can ya do.

    Met Cousins last night, never knew he was a taxi driver. He told me he's staying for next season and hopes to keep a base of 14 players or so. Had a good chat with him, he's a sound man. Didn't think he'd be as open and honest about things with a stranger.

    We could do without having to start the season with a whole new set up again so it's good to hear that we'll hopefully be keeping the basis of a squad together. Cousins has done ok overall so let him have another crack at it next season and hopefully we can improve on this year.

    That's basically the gist of what I said to him, about needing a bit of stability going into a new season. Whether he understood me through my slurring of words is another thing!

    for the first time in five long years we have a good chance of keeping the same squad again. Ever since then we have sold majority of the squad and the replacements were never quite the same.. thats super news about cousins the shamrock rovers lads must be staying so..

    hopefully he can get in a solid right back, maybe another centre half and not sure on the loan signings, would rovers be willing to loan them out for another season!?

    Vik, freeman, philly byrne, conlon, shanahan should be let go no doubt about any of them imho

    if we can hold onto the two roaches, salmon, hyland, lee, glynn (if fit) cowan, brady, oladele and bring in a goalkeeper and a few solid and fit defenders that can run id be delighted.

    Some of them could be released anyway. Rovers may want to hold on to them to fill up their A team but can't see any of them being around their first team at the moment. We'll see I suppose.
