    At the risk of agreeing with EZ I think Byrne getting called up does reflect well on th e league. Hopefully some players will choose loi over league 1 and 2 going forward.
    Although being completely honest I think Byrne has been called up because of a lack of quality in the Irish midfield as much as anything else.

    19 league matches between now and the end of July.

    All postponed games this week will now take place on Monday April 15th. Sligo vs Dundalk on Saturday 13th April is also moved to Friday the 12th to allow for this.

    Typical FAI though, person behind the official LOI twitter account can't count and said 4 Premier division games were rescheduled when 5 were.

    It wasn't in the list of rescheduled games so i think it is. Probably suits Rovers to have the game go ahead more than to reschedule it and risk a build up. Also probably suits Harps too I'd imagine.

    It probably suits both teams to play on Friday.

    Harps for the obvious fact that Rovers will be missing Byrne and Clarke; Rovers will probably see it as being the lessor of two evils to avoid a fixture pile-up that other clubs will have to endure between the end of March and early May

    Definitely suits rovers in a number of ways. They've got huge cover in that area, of a high quality. They get one less game in the mess of April where others play 7 games. And they have the chance to go 7 points clear. Yes, 2 extra played, but it's still a big psychological boost for a team who haven't been there for a while.

    Sensible call to play regardless.

    Is it to late for other teams to agree to play Friday instead of postponing? Chances are come April you will have injuries and suspensions anyway

    Bohs in particular. As a part-time team the run of 6 games in a 17 day period is likely to hit them hard.

    Going ahead away to Dundalk next Friday without Dan Mandroiu and Darragh Leahy might seem like an unlikely call, but they would be arguably no more likely to pick up the points with them in the middle of a difficult run of 2-games-a-week in April. The fatigue involved for part-timers could actually lead to more dropped points, especially as it will be their third away trip in 10 days

    Just for the craic, I went looking to check out Bradsers utterances on Jack Byrne and was amazed to find that he was actually talking some sense

    The pleasing thing for us is Jack fits in with the group, works for the team, hes getting better.
    Ive seen him play for years and I know there is more to come.
    We spoke when Jack came in about leaving his ego at the door and working for the team.
    When you come back to this league, you have to respect it. Its a tough league and you need to work before you get anything else. It was the same when we got Graham Burke. We had the same conversation.
    Jack is a really level-headed guy, he wants to win so much and hes *passionate but its about understanding about what comes before his quality and thats hard work.
    You just have to understand that in this league, if you dont work, teams will outwork you.
    Thats the No 1 thing hes brought to us and hes playing off the back of it. Hes brilliant. And hes brought that to the table in abundance.
    Hes getting better and better. You have to remember that Jack, since he left Oldham in August, hasnt played a lot of football.
    So every game hes getting his legs, hes feeling more confidence.

    No bombast or pomposity at all - it's like he has done a media course with Terry Prone!

    A second positive post about Rovers in a couple of days - one has to be mildly amused at the slowly creeping smell of fear as bets get hedged

    Doubt that with a full midfield to come back I doubt there is any fear. I think EZ has grown bored of himself.
    I welcome the change, he occasionally has a point.

    It is more a case of bemusement that the renowned motivational speaker has curbed his bizarre media utterances on this occasion - I suspect not for long

    The positive to Shams topping the table currently is that the hallmark Rovers hubris and arrogance is likely to grow even further, reaching an almighty crescendo before the inevitable fall back to earth.

    As shgawa regularly intones - 'its the hope that kills ya'

    I did say that a leopard never changes his boring trolling spots but I still have hope for him.
    But its the hope that kills you.

    And now bet hedging in both directions.....

    Waterford deserved to beat us on Friday, but they seem fairly average. Luckily for them, we are truly awful and not improving in any way whatsoever.

    Mmmmm some evidence that Mr Bradly is now thinking about what he says so thats positive also some evidence that he is learning his trade as a football manager which tbh was hard to see over the last few seasons. Great chance of finishing within 10 pts of Dundalk perhaps even runners up on what we have seen on and off the pitch so far this season KOH
