    Harps had a great chance just after their goal to make it 2-0 but Shields blocked that like a superman.Harps threw EVERY BODY to defence for 85 minutes and it was hard work for Dundalk to break them down.Harps are a poor side,it must be awful watching them.


    good luck now.

    Couldn't be worse than Limericks pitch. There was a simple 5 yard pass to Kenna that bounced up above his head at one point. Was like they had a horse on it before the match

    Great battling qualities from Harps last night against a very good side,Dundalks build up not as fluent as youd expect.
    Few Dundalk players got a bit techy as the game went on Gartland and Shields in paticular, Gartland throwing sneaky digs off the ball was amusing!
    A wee smozzel at the end , the highlight being Higgsy running 25 yards to shove Higgins!!!!

    End of last season Carr was brilliant on the wing and Greene has been good up top so far this season, had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside last night early on and he holds the line better than Carr who drops deep more often.

    It was a stroll for Drogheda v Cobh last night.
    Cobh were very poor.
    They arrived later than planned due to their bus breaking down, it was harsh of the ref only to delay the kickoff by 5 minutes & reducing their warm-up.

    I didn't think that was our major problem, I thought what we were missing was the finishing. We came close on numerous occasions but only scored 1 due to a mixture of poor finishing and dogged Harps defending.

    I agree Greene through the middle to me balances the side he is fit quick and makes defenders make mistakes will he get 20 goals this season if he starts 80 % of games i think he may.

    If we can keep Finn mceneff Byrne and watts free of injury we will score goals from midfield, 15 to 20 up front would be great

    Finishing definitely hurt Dundalk. Probably should have scored one more. The same could be said of Dundalk defence too, Harps had one or two great chances to get a second, and only for Hoare, may well have conceded a second with Niall McGinley bearing down on goal in the second half.

    Farrugia gives UCD the lead at the break in the relegation did-pointer in Oriel.

    Dundalk the better side going off Twitter updates, but we've had our chances too

    That was hard work from what could be seen on skor. Obviously the two footballing sides in the league nearly cancelled eachother out.

    Another good point for Harps and nice to get a clean sheet against Pats.

    On a positive note I would have taken 6 points from our first 3 matches and being 1 point ahead of dundalk given the 3 fixtures for each team.
    Now excuse me while I go off and drown my negativity about tonight.
    Can't wait to see a replay of Greene's sending off , looked very harsh but doesn't matter a feck now.

    Roll on Friday.

    It truly is a mad league at times. It’s one of the reasons we love it.
