    Leicester won the epl against teams with a budget of multiples of them if cork hang in I will take my hat off to them but they are battling uphill. You have to give them credit for getting to here

    We were absolutely awful tonight but I was also surprised by how Bray played. We are shipping to many stupid goals to have any chance of a european place. We are in dire need of a goal scorer.

    Are you suggesting Dundalk's budget is multiples of Cork's?

    I am 100% admiring of cork this year but I feel you are overachieving and dundalk have more gears. If you go on and win the league it will be a tremendous achievement..bigger than last year imo

    Reports surfacing (well one report from Paul O'Hehir on Twitter) that Limerick haven't paid their players and have told them all they can go.

    How Lopes wasn't sent off for that assault on McGrath is just beyond beyond!Ref Connolly obv knew this match was on TV and he wasn't going to ruin it for the 'punters' sitting on their arses at home Fcuking shocking reffing!!

    Dundalk showed up for the 2nd half and in some style.

    The Carr & Finn injuries for Rovers defo threw Dundalk some relief but Lopes should have been gone by the time of the injuries anyway.

    Now the debate: to pull a Monaghan or pull a Galway United?

    Finn, Bolger, and Carr were very good for Rovers tonight. Injuries hampered them, very unlucky.

    You can see the good things that Bradley is building at Rovers. They need to stick together.

    Derry were so bad tonight it was unreal! Sligo could have won by five. Derry need to get at least 4/5 new players in in the window.

    I didn't suggest its in the bag, but there is this increasing narrative that the league title is a one horse race. We're past the half way point and theres a very real chance that by the time the top two have played 21 of 36 games that the one horse in that one horse race won't be in first place.
    Dundalk may yet go on to win the league, but there is a battle to be fought for it. Rovers fans suggesting Dundalk will run away with it have lost the run of themselves. Lets not forget we're the defending Double Winning Champions. Its not like we're some suprise team coming out of nowhere.

    I guarantee you there is no-one in Dundalk saying it is a one horse race.

    It's the strength in depth that dundalk have before we eve get to the window that makes me think it is a one horse race. Cork need to be lucky with injuries suspensions ...Not impossible and if they pull it off you'd have to take your hat off

    Rovers fans should be excused if some of them are a little shell shocked. For the record, I think any inference of a comparison between Cork and Leicester is unfair and incorrect.

    For starters, the year after Leicester won their league title they finished in the bottom half of their league.

    I'm sure, but your biggest fan Johnny Ward (I know he says hes a Galway fan but...) has used those exact words, and we have Rovers fans in this thread suggesting its a miracle we're in it, and that Dundalk will win it by 8 or 9 points. Probably based off a single game against us in which we were admittedly very poor.
    We have a perfect home record, 9 wins from 9, conceding just one goal. We have conceded only 12 goals all season, 3 of them in that one crazy game against Rovers. We might not play the prettiest football but there is no right way to play. Teams like Pats pass the ball around a lot and it might look nice but we are very good at letting them have the ball in safe areas. We keep a lot of clean sheets and fans are often confused as to how they didn't get a result when they had so much ball, not realising that we have done exactly what we set out to do yet again. Our style is highly effective and has been for over 4 seasons now since John Caulfield came in.
    Tonight was his 152nd league game as manager, hes lost just 22 games, less than 15%, and hes won 101, 66.45%. Thats an insane winning ratio over such a long period of time and hes unfortunate to come up against such a good Dundalk side or he would have more than 1 league title and two FAI Cups to show for himself.

    Rovers meanwhile have a comparable budget with both City and Dundalk and set out to compete for the title (they talk a lot at the start of each season about finishing ahead of City and then change their ambition when its clear they are a mess of a club). Since Bradley took the job he has been in charge for 71 games and hes lost 26. Hes won only 31. (43.66%).
    I probably shouldn't care so much about the opinions of others but its ridiculous to have our record under Caulfield not recognised for what it is.

    I don't think you've even seen our squad. We have a lot of options, and we've been making a lot of changes all season long, with the exception of McNulty and Cummins.

    Straight shoot out now between Dundalk and Cork, it may well come down to the head to heads, currently 1 a piece but next game in Dundalk.

    Impressive win by Cork tonight but Dundalk appear better suited to dealing with going behind and winning, that’s two big games away now that’s happened, both 0-1 down too, Derry (4-1) and Rovers (5-2).

    29th June Dlk v Cork. Tasty
