    Credible draw for Harps, watched the second half on a dodgy stream ,Pats struggled to break us down and we could have snatched it at the end,2 points from 3 games not bad considering 2 were in Dublin and had the league champions at home,in other news Derry don't need to score goals at home because the opposition do it for them!!!!
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Harps have had a good start from what looked like a tough schedule to start with. Sounds like a strange night between Derry and Waterford. Sligo had a bit of an edge to them against Dundalk that you wouldnt associate with a Buckley team but it was Cork who picked up 6 yellow cards. Byrne being subbed for Carr at half time in Dalymount didnt seem to go down too well. Has there been such a long period of one side dominating the Dublin Derby almost completely? It takes the shine off what was looking like a far more resilient Rovers start to the season. Other sides were over performing or struggling by preseason expectations whereas Rovers going away to Waterford and Derry were scarily on form. I know its one game but beating Bohs in Dalymount would have had every sit up and take serious note!!

    Terrible game out in Pats. Dont know why Harry played 5 at the back, No disrespect to Harps but there wasn't and need for 3 centre halfs. Could have easily took Desmond out of there and put him sitting in front of the other 2 or even started Forrester ahead of a defender. Always going to be a 0-0 with both teams very compact with 5 across the back.

    Honestly baffled Kenny went with a back 3(/5) tonight. It worked in the opening two games but it's pretty obvious it wasn't going to be suited to playing Harps at home, and given we've been playing 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 all pre-season it made all the sense in the world to revert back to it tonight. Very strange. Weird start to the season really, 7 points from those 3 games is something you'd have taken before the season started but we still haven't clicked at all performance-wise. Hopefully a change in formation for UCD on Friday to get the football rolling properly.

    Based on the UCD performance tonight, 3 points is far from the gimme it may appear for St Pats based on results to date. This is a very decent UCD team who play smashing football without fear.

    Derry city were well with worth the 3 points tonight. The OG's would have been goals anyway. Massive crowd for a Monday night fixture against Waterford with only a dozen away fans. Waterfords 2nd goal in the the last couple of minutes is up there with goal of the season so far but this Derry city team could surprise a lot this season. Still surprised at the size of the attendance on a Monday night. Not many empty seats once again.

    I just meant purely in terms of the manner in which we play (or attempt to anyway). Definitely not taking anything for granted results-wise, especially at this stage of the season.

    Great win for table toppers Bohs (milking it while I can). Better team 11 v 11 and mad lunge by Greene pretty much ended their hopes of first derby win in six. I suppose "Greene sees red" makes a good headline 😁
    Bohs played most of the football and were very deserved winners on the night.

    Ho hum another derby win!
    Harsh enough straight red for Aaron Green, he was a dick diving in feet first though.Very undisciplined from Rovers overall.The Peno being a case in point
    Thought Carr was excellent for Rovers 2nd half, can't understand why he is not leading their line.
    Bohs were pretty awful for long spells but just about deserved the win.Great performances though from Conor Levinson, Donny,Ward , Pender and Peader Kirk. 6 points off relegation=success.

    It's interesting to hear the respective managers take on the red card

    The Bohs manager is clear in his view that the Ref got the decision right and that Greene "went over the ball" and "was a little bit high"

    The Rovers manager seems slightly confused. Initially he says
    "It’s never a sending off. It’s not even a booking. Aaron actually doesn’t touch him."

    Later he suggests it should have been a yellow card
    "It doesn’t matter which side makes the tackle, it’s still not a red card, it's a yellow card, get on with the game"

    The spell Bohs have over Rovers at the moment is genuinely funny. Fair play.

    Like LoI refereeing consistantly inconsistant, how many cup medals do the Bohs lads have now?

    Cork scored, he had to do something spectacular to selebrate that! Or he saw a Cork player tackle, get carded, and he went nuts at the damage done to a carefully crafted reputation...

    Not the first time he's gone into the crowd with excitement. Great to see. Obviously meant a huge amount after the last couple of weeks. He's been under a lot of pressure, good to see him enjoy the positives. He thanked every fan that travelled individually. After the muck Friday, I'd imagine it was a long journey up!

    Thought it was the first time we actually deserved something from a bohs game in a while even enough till the ref bottled from a mass pitch invasion from the bohs bench and sent off Greene. What dissapionted me was how nice we were, our players need to be more in the refs ear. Even going off at half time they said nothing to him. Dan Carr has played 5 halves of football for us but bar a decent one in Waterford he is really struggling. He had a shocker last night he was actually an extra defender last night at times. Could not see the penno due to the poor viewing position i had in the Des Kelly so no comment. The amount of times we had the ball in the box in the 2nd half in dangerous areas with no one able to get on the end was painful. Great atmosphere. So summing up still confident enough about the coming season and finishing within 10 of Dundalk. Will we finish higher than Bohemian FC ABSOUTLEY.koh

    I think taking Byrne off, who is capable of pushing forward and grabbing a goal, for Carr was an odd substitution. As for not being in the refs ear Finn is well able for that!
