    While I think Shamrock R will win the league this year, a win would certainly strengthen that belief. Harps should get a good gate from their derby up their. Limerick have been the best away supporters we have had in Galway in recent seasons, so hope they bring a good few. A draw would be a ok result for Galway I think.
    As mentioned above the Shels/Bray will be the big game in Dublin this weekend. wonder will the fans rep Noel Rock go to it?

    Definitely lowish, but tends to be very weather dependent. If it rains an hour before the game, we lose a load of people unfortunately. So hard to be sure.

    Maybe 3-3.5k I would guess.

    In an all seater, all covered stadium ? That's very poor by those who would make that decision. I think on attendance overall, Cork must have the biggest floating fan base, as home crowds can range from a season high of almost 7k ? to a low of around 2.5k?

    On the game tonight, although Cork didnt have a shot on target last Friday, they were decent in MF, I have a feeling they might get a decent result, but Rovers are water tight at the back, it maybe heading for a draw.

    Dundalk will have a tricky game tonight, Pats poor form won't last forever, I would take any type of win, but I think we should be strong enough to take all 3 points.

    Cork Rovers is a nil nil all over for me. Cork low on confidence but solid in midfield. Rovers lacking a real goal scorer and relying on midfield for goals, where Cork are strongest. Should be an interesting game all the same.

    Expect the game in Cork will be tight so would have to fancy a draw (0-0 or 1-1). Pats will improve but unless there is a major attitude change from last Friday they wont get much from Dundalk. decent crowd going to Sligo on Saturday from Bohs and we would hope to get something from the game. I Would like to see Harps get something (just the underdog thing) but it is already looking like a short stay in the Premier for them, even this early. A decent result or two at home might give Harps some momentum but don't see it this week (or hopefully not next week ).

    Shels V Bray looks the interesting one in Dublin this weekend, the Tolka all stars will be under huge pressure were they to lose

    UCD AFC w Waterford FC, the UCD Bowl, ko 19:45
    Should be a nother good game of football on Campus as the Studnets take on The Blues. UCD have ramped up their performances form the beginning of the PD season and they are getting coser and closer to matching each of the opponents.

    Possibly a dig at Noel Rock's self appointed status as the fans champion versus the FAI big wigs?
    Could be a Shels fan, who knows ?Have never seen him at a game other than at premium level in the Aviva.

    Stadium isn't all covered. Roof doesn't go full length About 60% of the Donie Forde, 40% of the St Anne's aren't covered. Both our biggest stands.

    But yes, we've a big floating fan base. 2.5k is about the hard-core. Anything above that is a bonus based of context.

    Think it's too early to be giving us the title, as much as I'd like to take it, a 10 point lead with 2 games more played and 3 games to come against second place if far from insurmountable.

    Dundalks twitter taking the approach of just acting as if the Pats goal never happened. That's one way to do it I suppose

    Seriously good performance from Rovers.Very poor from Cork though. If they keep that up it really will be down to the wire with Dundalk,unless they get a manager in.

    What happened to the whole showing goals from other games? Your man was only on GLITW going on about that feature being the best thing since sliced bread this week

    Rovers looked very solid tonight, ominously good in fact. Cork looked a much lesser team than recent years.

    4 wins in a row for Limerick. Us and Longford looking the most consistent so far. Big win for Shels against Bray.

    Delighted with that win tonight as it was badly needed. It’s the best we looked in a few weeks. The shape overall and work rate was brilliant. I thought Shaw did well up top and Forrester had his best game this season.

    Great performance given the opposition plus our recent form. Was a little reminiscent of the Cork game earlier in the season. We're still struggling to create much but I would have taken anything tonight so can't complain, hopefully this will kick start some more confident performances.

    Worth pointing out that Forrester finally got going tonight, his touch was brilliant for the most part and you could see him enjoying himself more and more as the game opened up. Jamie Lennon isn't long for this league also, plays like someone far beyond his years in that position.

    Most flat Dundalk performance I've seen (in the league anyway) for a long time against us though. Kelly in the first half and Hoban in the second had chances they shouldn't have squandered so poorly but apart from that they were mostly limited to - granted very dangerous - efforts from Murray from range. Lot of uncharacteristicly sloppy stuff, Cleary had an absolute howler for the own goal.
