    Very poor stuff in the Showgs, if we can't put clear blue sky between us and the likes of Cork we are fooked.

    Interesting to see Dundalk fans rejoicing at beating league leaders who were shorn of 4/5 regulars and forced to play their best midfielder at r/full and give a debut to a 16 yr old transition year school boy. Still I guess you can only beat whatís in front of you, will be interesting next time out if hopefully both of us have our best 11 available

    UCD started the second half very strong after a bore all first half. The substitutions made the difference for us Jamie Lennon was a different class when he came on and is clearly an emerging talent and Darragh Markey did well off the bench.

    Interesting turn of events. I didn't realise the squad was so thin after the years of investment and underage development.

    Dundalk were good in patches tonight but need to be more clinical. Rovers were carved open time and time again but poor decision making in from of goal resulted in a nervy final 10 minutes. Rovers started the game very brightly and had some lovely passages of controlled possession.

    However, playing so many players out of position ultimately told; Carr in particular had a difficult task tracking an in form Sean Gannon.

    Rovers will quite rightly point to so many players being unavilable. It looks like a good title race this year between Dundalk, Rovers, Bohs, and Derry. All four sides play good football as well.

    Thought Furlong did well considering Carr didn't help him out at all. Not an easy game to make your debut in.

    Wait? What? Really? Someone should have said that playing a 16 year old at left back for their debut and an attacking midfielder at right back wasn't exactly ideal, good thing you were on hand to point that out or nobody would have realised that....
    Oh by the way that "fossil" is less than a year older than Gartland.

    Carr was woeful from a defensive perspective and Gannon waltzed past him continually.

    I was astounded that Rovers did not switch Carr with Greene at an early stage when it was obvious that Furlong was so badly exposed.

    Dundalk fans tend to rejoice at every win, even the relatively routine ones. A 3 goal margin would not have flattered.

    Does that not ring alarm bells? You were playing a team with a 16 year old debutant left back, an attacking midfielder at right back and a centre back with a dislocated shoulder who had pretty much all played 60/70 minutes with 9 players in a derby just 3 days before on your own astro which is a huge advantage yet you only won by a goal. Is that not worrying?

    I thought the trigger would have been pulled this week. It will surely be done next week but if we beat harps I fear JC gets a stay of execution and the whole thing limps on for another few games. GROANS.

    Which part do you think I should worry about?

    That Dundalk fans tend to celebrate every win is great craic.

    Winning by a single goal would only become a problem if they introduce bonus points for a bigger winning margin

    Dundalk fans celebrating their 4th win in a row, and reducing a once 13 points gap to 4, nothing else.

    Besides in the previous game in Tallaght, Rovers were at full strenght and failed to beat a Dundalk side at home missing most of their cup final MF.

    Nothing won or lost at the end of April, but I will say this Rovers side is better than the standard Cork were at this time last year, so the challenge to retain the title is going to harder. Then again being 4 points behind with a game in a hand, and a deserved win, Dundalk will now be favourites, long way to go mind.
    #DundalkFC 4 titles in 5 years 2014/2015/2016/2018
