    Ah in fairness, that's a bad attendance and there's no point dressing it up otherwise. The bottom seems to have fallen out at Waterford since they weren't let into Europe, and you'd wonder what next season will bring - can it get back to where it was or will Power start to pull away?

    Have seen Waterford play four times this season, comfortably the fifth best team in the league, play decent football ,have some fine players and a good away support. They hit a really bad patch for half a dozen games but they are putting in a really strong finish. If they can keep the likes of Feely, Talbot , Lunney and the under 21 international, they should be fine next season.

    As they say, the league table doesn't lie.

    It's perfectly natural to form a view based on the performances against your own team, but do you realise that Waterford have lost 16 of their 34 league games?


    As regards keeping the four players you mentioned for next season - Zach Elbouzedi is out of contract and the end of the season and has already attracted lots of interest. Whatever about Feely and Lunny staying, who is this Talbot chap?

    True, though that is the big "if" of course. What's Power likely to do while 585 come through the gate?

    The eternal LoI question really...

    Mid week games are awful alright. They are a good indicator of what your hardcore fans are though.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    Holland, I meant.
    Waterford are a far better side than Pats ,currently occupying 5th.

    It was a poor crowd considering we have been on a good run of form lately. I've said it here before that our crowds are always badly affected by a change from the usual Friday night. I couldn't go myself as was working late and when games are fixed with only a weeks notice it can be tricky to arrange time off or shift swops at work.
    Lee Power is reviewing his investment so what happens next year is unclear according to recent interviews with Alan Reynolds. He can't sign any players yet for next year so in usual LOI fashion we will probably see a turnover of players at end of season.

    On what basis exactly?

    No doubt we've been poor this season based on the caliber of the squad but that Waterford team is most certainly not better than the Pats one.
    We've had a manager who couldn't get anything out of the players we've had our top scorer suspended for almost a 1/4 of the season and we now have a manager who hasn't picked a consistent team as he is trying to figure out who he does or doesn't want for next season and even with all that we are still ahead of Waterford in the league.

    Waterford have beaten Pats 2-0 ( twice) and 3-0 ( once 0. Lost once to Pats 2-1, so a 3 out of 12 return for Pats v Waterford head to head.
    First it was Harry Kenny`s fault, now it`s Stephen O`Donnell! Despite the hammer blows of losing Heary , Akinade, and losing out on Europe, Waterford have continued to play a decent passing game and will be within two/three points of Pats by the end of the season

    Bohs have beaten Rovers how many times this year? Are Bohs better than Rovers?

    Don't forget Waterford had extra motivation against us and as some of there own supporters have said played the best games of their season against us.
    Your argument is nonsense, even by your own admission Waterford will still be behind Pats at the end of the season.

    Head to Heads mean absolutely zero league table is the only thing you can compare teams with.

    The points difference at the end of the season will be the equivalent to you drawing 0-0 at home, when striving for euro qualification, to a very weakened UCD side as against the aberration/outlier of a 4-1 win by UCD v Waterford , before the exodus of some of UCD`s better players.
    You are of course quite entitled to believe that Pats are a better team than Waterford on the basis of results other than those v Waterford, i disagree.

    For both Waterford and Pats i would say it depends on which team shows up.
    Both teams have been decent or awful at times this year.
    Both have had unbelievably disruptive seasons for a variety of reasons.
    I would expect both to be much better next year.

    No they're not. The league table doesn't lie.

    When you consider that Waterford started the season with a strong team that was expected to challenge for Europe before the dodgy Delaney promise did them over, the fact that they still couldn't finish 5th is telling. Theye were effectively given a head start over Pats.
