    Even with 12 teams there always seemed to be at least one fixture each season that was done to death playing 4 or 5 times a season between the different competitions. Drawing Bohs in the FAI Cup would not be a surprise at all!

    No condescension on my part - but plenty by way of ridicule that you claim that some comments on an internet discussion board is a bigger issue for you than your clubs likely inability to stay in the division.

    Literally nowhere did he say that - he said in the bit you quoted that it "neatly encapsulated" the issue - but you keep right on talking ****e and misrepresenting people's posts anyway.

    I disagree.

    He responded with a clear "Nope" to this question:

    If the potential relegation has no bearing, yet the "Dundalk - Bohs stuff on here" in some way "encapsulates the downside of a ten team league" it is fairly clear (even if somewhat unbelievable) that the former is a bigger manifestation of the problem than the latter.

    Absolute nonsense.

    But par for the course for a poster for whom brain-defying leaps of logic are par for the course when it comes to trolling.

    That's a pretty pointless post, other than using the opportunity to shoot off more personalised barbs.

    Are you still sore over being called out on your madcap Nial Corbet posts?

    In fairness mentioning the 'impending' relegation of Harps in May looked like a bit of a barb itself whether intended or not.

    Ah, it's just Ezeikial. I think a random vent is good every now and again at probably the most annoying poster on the site (and I'd be far from the only person to hold that view)

    Anyways, there's a League Cup thingy I hear?

    You seem pretty determined to pursue a personalised approach with 3 successive similar comments .

    If a poster annoys you to the extent that you claim, use the ignore function!

    My God. We've reached the stage where Dundalk fans are taking exception to it being said there's a lot of Dundawk vs Bohs talk on here. That's a whole other level of precious.

    Note to self - must try harder!! I do think there often isnt much of challanging Ezeikial's points and people are a bit quick to react to the poster rather than the post. Of course there is a good dollop of winding up in posts but isnt that what a football forum is at least partly about!? mingled with discussion on actual footballing matters now and again.

    Zero to none I'd imagine, Dundalk currently to play away in Azerbaijan on Wednesday July 31st, away in Sligo Saturday August 3rd, Bohs home Monday August 5th and either home or away on Tues/Wed/Thurs of that week depending on how our previous tie goes. I'd imagine the cup tie will be the first to go and wouldn't be surprised if the Sligo game was requested off too given the travel involved prior and possibly directly after.

    Would the LC not take priority? Final is due on 14th September, whereas league fixtures can wait until the end of October.

    As Bohs moved the Oriel league fixture to facilitate Dundalk I doubt we will be so obliging again, appreciate Dundalk doing well in Europe but the rest of the league doesn't suddenly stop. suspect we would want it played on or very close to that date.

    Rovers are down to play a league game one Friday and then a LSC game the Saturday, as in the day after, so you really never know.

    I don't know, I think Dundalk would prioritize the league, I personally wouldn't care if we withdrew from the League cup to concentrate on Europe but I'd imagine if it is played on/around the 5th it will be the u19s with John Gill managing
    and VP just focusing on Europe with the main squad.

    Last season we had to play our U 19 team at Pats in a League game due to FAI Cup semi final replay (we won &#128513. Bohs have twice had to play at Oriel on Monday night which causes problems for part time players, I doubt we would be agreeable to being messed around again.
