    Yed want to clamp down on that. Couple of weeks on the bench should sort him out....
    From his body language he looked diappointed and he sort of slumped into his seat on the bench. Hardly a strop, it could easily just be him being frustrated with his performance.

    Hoban has a strop this time last year when he was taken off and that turned out ok.
    I think though that he shouldíve been taken off a lot earlier, he hasnít played well at all this season and looks disinterested at times.

    Thats a dramatic reaction to a tongue in cheek suggestion to drop the leagues top scorer.

    Do you think there aren't any dundalk fans on twitter that might post something like that?

    Spot on, continuity is key. He's also taken over the best-player-in-the-league role as well

    Excellent win. I thought you looked decent in midfield but not all that threatening up front against us last week, but tonight must have been different.

    We have a couple of young forwards in Dobbs and Byrne who will likely be a bit inconsistent but both are talented and scored tonight. Verdon coming back will give us another 10-15 goals all going well.

    Disappointing night for us last night, Sligo will be delighted with the win given their injury problems and probably deserved too given they looked solid at the back without doing that much going forward,as for us we're struggling to create chances from open play,Boyd for a big man doesn't hold the ball up well enough , McAleer was excellent when he came on and has to start I'd say, tough game on Monday now ........

    Cobh 0 Athlone 1. Williams seems to be flying in Athlone. Anyone seen Athlone play yet this season? Are they just getting lucky or are they looking like a decent outfit?

    They’ve put in a bit more money and signed up a decent squad. They’ll be in the top half this year, possibly pushing for the play offs.

    We had Pico there to be fair and he's not a right back, so he needed the extra help. Duffy is so good you'd need to put extra attention on his to begin with but I thought Lopes stepped up well.

    I agree CD. It was tactically shrewd too, we didnt exploit the space created by that for any number (of injury) reasons I'd much rather have our main striker unhappy being subbed than delighted to trot off early. It's not the first time that Hoban hasnt been happy about being subbed when he has drawn a blank, it's the standard he sets himself of minimum 1 goal per game. I dont think his body language was disinterested on the pitch as much as he had supply cut off and when he got a sniff of a chance he isnt being sharp enough yet to poach away - like being able to toe poke a keepers fumble in to the net early last season. He has missed a peno and hit the woodwork a few times but that will pass and he will still be 20 goals up by season's end. Kelly will get more game time this season but I dont think that keepers and strikers should be dropped quickley as they are positions that I think need to play in to form and get the vote of confidence...until it become glaring that someone else needs to be given the chance to step up.

    Being a former player that left suddenly aside, Ronan Finn does plenty of badgering players around him. Thats grand when he isnt being a bit sloppy himself. He cut a more frustrated player than Hoban did!

    LSC game they were no mugs even if our 'reserves' werent exactly staking a claim for the first team. They are not the roll over outfit of last season if they put in the graft they did in 'the nicest trophy in the LoI competition!

    Plenty of space to widen the pitch and reduce the techical area by few feet, a crucial few feet that is obviously the winning or losing of a game!!!. I'm not allowed ask?

    Interesting RH about organising the sections of the ground where fans can generate most atmosphere. When people get moved about after a new stand is added it will take a bit of time to settle. From online it seemd likea good atmosphere!

As others mentioned, Rovers were very overloaded in their right hand side, and there was a lot of space to exploit in central areas, which Dundalk failed to do.

    Rovers, as expected, lack a cutting edge up front.

    Its very early in the season and both sides should get better with games.
    That's a fair summary of the game.
    I think both sides have a lot more in them.
