    Solid performance by Dundalk last night, and even though Murray went off early in the second half he is some player, putting in 8/10 performances week in week out.

    Still 4 players out injured and 3 who would be definite starters, good to have Duffy back, seems to have been managed well, leaving him out last week. I like the look of Harkin in MF for Derry, good player.

    My first visit to the Brandywell in prob 15 years, lovely new stadium, very friendly folk all over the city, good few of us stayed up for the night.

    Curry chips were nice, and it was baltic at HT so very welcome indeed, but Turners Cross still the best curry chips in the league IMO.

    I was surprised to learn he is 23 (he looks about 18). He has loads of talent and screens the defence well, while also being neat on the ball. He really needs to seriously bulk up as the lacks the physicality required to make a big impact.

    Cork didnít create much either. Poor game but from first goal it was pretty much a done deal. Wasnít overly impressed with Cork either, lots of scope to improve for both.

    Apart from the goals, and the offside goal from Cummins, we'd another 3 good chances anyway. Took the foot off after the 2nd went in but never looked in trouble. Solid at the back (for once this season).

    Definitely room for improvment but played some lovely stuff when we upped the tempo at times, especially down the wings and through Daire.

    It's since been proven that Drennan was onside for our disallowed goal, not sure if it would have counted for much in the end but frustrating all the same as it would've given us a bit more of a lifeline at 2-1 and a needed boost in momentum during what was an awful second half.

    First half was possibly the best we've played all season and although we were perhaps a bit unlucky to go in a goal down there wasn't much in it to be fair, the second half was a shambles by comparison and yet another cause for concern.

    Almost happy there's no game next week as it gives Harry more time to work things out. And they need sorting quickly at this rate.

    I definitely expected more from Bohs on Friday night as they were undefeated. They had a few chances in the first half which, but we were, in general, well on top. The 2nd half was much more even for the first 25 mins or so, but then we got on top again. Graham Cummins got a fantastic header ruled for offside in the first half, but it was difficult to see how he was. My guess was that it was Sheppard that was offside while not interfering. I'd like to see it again.

    It was definitely our best display so far though, but there wasn't exactly a high bar to reach. I still have question mark around our defence. Some of the chances we gave up in the first half were real calamity stuff. I'm also sure I'll worried about our ability to create chances and that IMO stems from an inconsistent strategy of playing 2 high wingers and a striker that has a liking to get the ball in behind. We'd be much more effective if Cummins came short and brought the midfield into it. There's no denying his aerial prowess though. Superb header of the ball.

    Jack Byrne was fantastic, gave a display that might see him called into Ireland squad. Mick and Robbie were in tallaght apparantly. Sounds mad but he was that good. Improving with every match.
    Glad to see Mick took my advice.

    Will Rovers postpone the game against Harps now?

    I assume so but I think we should play it. We have Dylan watts and Sean kavanagh to come in.

    Fair play to Jack Byrne. Transfer to Preston in the summer, I presume.

    Seriously, do you think Rovers will look to postpone for just one player not available?

    Nice one for him and the club getting the call up, amazing if he got on even for a few mins v Gibraltar, the last LOI player to play in a competitive game, is still Pat Byrne v Denmark in 1985?

    Nice problem for Rovers to have. The players are getting recognition and will be buzzing off the back of it.

    Great timing by Jack Byrne to have a MOTM performance on Friday.

    7 games into his debut LoI season and he gets an international call-up. It reflects well on him, his club and the league.
