    Danny North was the best after Twigg in my opinion. Totally different styles but very effective. Injuries and a questionable lifestyle took their toll on him but for a while he was clinical the year we won the league.

Ideally, Greene would do all the work he does and be clinical in front of goal, but it doesn't look likely at the moment, and I can't think of a striker other than McMillan who fits the description in the league recently.
    Are you suggesting that Bradley wanted to sign him previously but was out foxed by Bray?

    Aaron Greene is a decent player, but 9 clubs in 9 seasons from 2009 doesn't suggest that any manager would have to wait very long.

    If Bohs win tonight its the bullet for Vinnie i reckon.
    With the biggest and most expensively assembled squad in the league 4th place regardless of injuries will be hard to defend.

    Dear lord please let Dundalk win tonight,the thought of Harps going to Oriel park on Friday after them losing 3 games in a row is scaring me!
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    I wonder will Peak6 be as patient as our board.
    The difference may be that Bradser was believed in by the board but Vinnie was always 2nd or 3rd choice for Peak6......back to options 1 and 2

    Good post Nesta, and not much to argue with there. I'll assume gartland was taken out of context when he was quoted. Think dundalk will be too strong for bohs tonight. The upcoming European campaign will take it's toll on all LOI entrants, including Rovers.
    Fact is if Byrne, Finn or Bolger are out for a period with injuries it will have a big effect on Rovers season, similar to the injuries dundalk have had. Hoban looks less threatening this season it appears, if I'm not mistaken, and shields is the biggest loss of all.
    All to play for.

    There isnt a need to assume at all PC, The headline of the piece and what Garts said were chalk and cheese. The local journalist was roundly criticised for the midleading headline and I doubt Gartland himself would have been too happy with it. Rovers dont need additional motivation by having Dundalk's captain dismiss their title credentials!

    Reckon no matter what happens Vinny would be given the season, maybe a cup success could keep the owners happy until next season, still hard to know what their ambitions are for the club.

    Would be an interesting feeling as a Bohs fan to beat Dundalk tonight, Dundalk to sack VP and then have our manager surface as a top choice for the vacated post... hmmm...

    (I am predicting a draw tonight though)

    Would be delighted with a draw. Hopefully the wind and rain die down later , brutal south east wind in Dublin, not much protection from that in Oriel unless your'e in the home shed.
    Will be interested to see Daniel Kelly tonight. Just saw glimpses of him in the TV coverage this season, how is he doing? One of three players who left Bohs at the end of last season who were supposedly going to kick on, JJ Lunney and Dan Casey being the other two
    Long and Crolly on three year deals afaik, small change for Peak 6 if they swoop.

    You have touched on an ongoing question among Dundalk fans and that being what the minimum is needed for the owners to be satisfied and getting a return on investment. Is it just making Europe annually, progression in Europe, group stages regularly etc. Obviously they will want maximum return, at least not lose money. A lot of Dundalk dans would like to know what their minimum requirement is and how they manage a poor run of form will help indicate that. I do think though that Mike Tracey is of the patient type, within reason and VPs job wont be on te line after tonights game regardless.

    Started season brightly, can see there's ability but lack of end product. Has been really poor the last two games (certainly not alone there). He may play tonight out of necessity but he needs to be dropped, too much pressure on him to perform.

    The headline writers in the papers are going for clickbait and always twist the words of the people involved to create a story out of very little.
    Gartland is'nt stupid enough to Diss Rovers to a Journo, it can only go wrong especially in this league where he could end up at Rovers next year with Massey
