    Harps game is 7:45 also as there is an RTE match and they show goals from around the grounds. Weird that Rovers were able to kick off at 8 last week though.

    If Rovers go and win in Cork it will be a serious statement.
    Cork is never an easy place to go, we were in the middle of a decent run when we were down there mid last year (the Gavin Bazunu penelty save night) and were lucky to get out with a draw.

    Pats really need a performance against Dundalk to try to turn their season around . A win against the odds would have them in 4th place and might dispel some of the early season gloom that has set in so quickly.
    Shels v Bray is an interesting one, a win for Bray could have the Shels manager under pressure already.
    Promotion is a must for them with the money being spent. (Good luck to the brave boys from North Korea as they travel to the bourgeois elite)

    Thanks i fixed that , it was 8pm on extratime.ie
    I did think it was strange alright with a tv match on.

    Rovers were allowed play at 8pm last week because......................................." We are Rovers and we do what we want"

    If ever there was a time for Shamrock to get a rare win in Cork it is now

    Outside of dead ball set-pieces, Cork look bereft of creating any goal scoring chances and morale must be very low among players and supporters after their 3rd defeat in only 7 league games last week. That said, they also will realise that the seasons direction could be determined by the result - win and the gap to the top is only 9 points with 2 games in hand, but lose and they drift 15 points shy in 6th or 7th place.

    They still have a very strong starting team and could start with 10 of the 2018 cup final squad:

    Mark McNulty
    Conor McCarthy | Sean McLoughlin | Alan Bennett | Shane Griffin;
    Garry Buckley | Conor McCormack | Gearoid Morrissey
    Karl Sheppard | Graham Cummins | AN OTHER.

    If Shamrock can score, they can win. A win would indeed be a very serious statement ahead of a 26 April visit to Oriel Park

    Big test down south tomorrow, always tough at the cross and with Cork somewhat of a wounded animal i expect them to be right up for this. Big Crowd travelling despite it being on live. If Arron Greene ups his conversion rate we are right in with a shout.

    Has Aaron Greene missed a lot of chances?

    If Shamrock have a quarter of their league games already played, his current league goal record would leave him on track to finish the season with less than 10 goals.

    Maybe it doesn't matter if there are enough goals shared around the rest of the team (Shamrocks currently have the top more goals per game ratio) - but I doubt if there has been a league winning team in recent times without a goalscorer in double figures.

    I’d even go so far as to say scoring is crucial if they’re going to win.


    Just kidding EZ.

    'The FAI has a turnover of €50 million, when John Delaney took over it was €5 million.'

    "There is a lot of talk about Government funding, my question is, there should be a lot more investment from Government. How does it compare with other sports in Ireland?"
    quite favourably actually Lee, that's also a horribly structured sentence.

    Incoherent sentences is the least worrying of what's going on here, instead of listening to the grave and legitimate concerns of loads of stakeholders the closing of ranks is quite something.

    I'd be very worried about tomorrow nigjt. Unlike previous seasons, we actually look weaker at home than away. Struggling with pressure maybe.

    In reality, I don't think most fans are worrying about challenging for the league so much as even being top 3 this season. Another loss already puts huge pressure on and would mean a very poor start overall.

    We had been better in recent weeks but the Dundalk game showed an enormous gap, and if the same were to happen vs Rovers at home it would be very worrying.

    On the flip side, a win tomorrow would galvanise us.

    Not one I'm looking forward to I'll be honest.

    incoherent sentences aren't worrying, bad grammar has just been a common denominator in nearly every one of these support statements.

    He has passed up a number of good chances, missed some sitters and had 3 disallowed, but he has made a lot of those chances himself and his power and fitness is causing a lot of panic in defences so even though the return is poor i expect he will improve that strike rate.

    What type of crowd would you expect for this. In some ways i want it to be lowish so our backing can be heard as much as poss, but then i want to see the biggest crowds poss at every atch

    Two of those should have been given as well. Ive been happy with Greenes performances so far, brings the midfielders into the game more and gets them more space.
