    Some interesting observations from James Rogers on twitter

    Incidentally on this day last year Dundalk sat second in the table 3 points off then leaders Cork. After last night's win Dundalk also sit second in the table 4 points behind Shamrock Rovers but with a game in hand

    do not know the **** the dale farmer rovers fans connection is all about, I have said all along if we finish within 10 of the winners which will be Dundalk thats progress, We are much improved on last year so far.

    Rovers don't have dfc budget and have tried to have a competitive first 11 (which I agree with). Quality rather than quantity.
    Hard to argue with the approach given our position.
    The next few games are important, need to get another run going as so many teams tucked in behind us
    Shams whining about resources 😁 you couldn't make it up 😁 whatever happened the FOUR left backs that were all better than Leahy ?
    Meanwhile at mega budget Bohs, 8 changes to the starting X1 left us very disjointed and Waterford were much better early on. Bohs improved as second half went on and finished the stronger but Waterford well worth the point.

That actually happened to one of the boys the time of the 83 final, he arrived out of Amien St station in highly befuddled state unsure of his direction and seeing black and red bedecked peoples heading northwards,he assumed they were Boh's fans and followed them, he ended up in Croagh Patrick watching Antrim playing Belfast or someone and missed us lifting our first cup, tragic.

    Not recall all those left backs you imagined you had ? Maybe the "knocks on the head" made you forget ? 😁

    I believe it was you and Ez that managed to to turn "3 of the best" to "the 3 best" and now you seem to have conjured up another one out of nowhere.

    As I recall your inability to grasp the difference between the two claims at the time I'm not going to bother trying explain it to you again.

    You must have missed the game earlier in season when Rovers had their first 11 and we were miswing a few on a good pitch, finisher 0-0 and most people who watched said Dundalk were the better team

    Well we were missing greene and boyle,

    dundalk had no shots on target so not sure how they were the better team, Rodgers actually had to make a few saves unlike Mannus.

    To be fair that was all good craic with some mischief makers wondering if Ally Gilchrist was part of this group of 3 or 4 of "the best in the league". The general consensus among Rovers fans was that he was excluded but that Luke Byrne was definitely a star. I seem to recall that sbgawa claiming that some u-19 whose name he could not remember was also among the best in the league.

    James Furlong had a decent debut for such a young player, but he was left totally exposed by Daniel Carr and the Rovers management inability to try to resolve the obvious problem for 70 minutes

    Shocked it hasn't been mentioned yet but Brandon Kavanaghs assist yesterday was absolutely superb put it on a plate for Vojic and so good Cleary fell over himself at the sight of it

    How Derry city only won 2-0 is baffling. Cork were never at the race's in the game. I think they'll struggle to get near a top four spot this season.

    Biggest mystery of the season is how have Dundalk dropped points to Sligo Rovers twice, we're the worst team in league and should have had the game won before they woke up,our search for a win goes on with a ball's of a journey on Monday night!

    Most people at the time said Dundalk shaded it. Be better off with professor Green up fron than Aaron Greene

    Do you never get bored with yourself whinging about rovers mangt a mangt team with probably half vinny budget that are 4 points ahead? We probably wont win tge league but it wont be the mangt team...You certainly bore most people on here with your constant banging on.
    Vinny a genius now? You were very quiet there for a while, almost started to miss you.......almost

    No whinge at all! I was delighted with the Rovers inertia about the obvious problem with Daniel Carr leaving Furlong exposed. It had nothing to do with budget, points gap or Vinny Perth's abilities.

    If you disagree with the observation, by all means articulate an alternative view.

    If the topic bores you or causes you discomfort, just ignore it

    Bohs management with a lot less than both Dundalk and Rovers budget! Why not hand out the league trophy before the start of the season based on player budgets....its an excuse most of the time and kind of a lazy point Aside from the clamour for 4ths spot its pointless to bang on about budgets. They are what they are if they if the can be afforded rather than a club gambling itself. In the current table probably Harps are the only side that are in a position relative to their budget.
