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.
    I'm not using the budget as an excuse just explaining why we were short of cover because a decision was made to spend the budget on a smaller amount of players and try to keep quality high and have a first 11 capable of winning the league.
    Biggest budget doesn't always win it's up to all the clubs to maximise what they have as creatively as possible to compete.

    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
    As usual EZ u try to isolate one point or one detail, every post u ever post about rovers is negative that's what makes you so boring. A complete lack of an ability to see anything outside of your blinkers.

    Longford 1-0 Limerick FT.

    Limerick missed a penalty early in the second half, then had McSweeney sent off, before Longford scored with 15 to go. Hard to complain when the players are struggling to even get paid.

    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.
    So, just "THREE of the best left backs in the League" (in your words) ?
    Which one played last night ? In your own time 😁

    Well he should hire you as his PR manager at least. Always quick to roll the excuses out. No money, injury crisis, only 11 good players. And quick to point out the positives i.e. Top of the league. Have you considered a hashtag?

    Nonsense on the single point issue - but please feel free to clarify what you mean. I made an observation about tactical inadequacies from Rovers and suggested that if you disagreed you offer a contrary view. As usual you are unwilling or unable to do so and resort to the usual diversionary claims.

    On the equally erroneous assertion of only posting negatives about Rovers, here is a snapshot of some complimentary post match comments I have made in this thread

    If you actually have an opinion on the point I raised about Daniel Carr being left in place for 70 minutes as Gannon and Kelly ran rings around him, I'd still be interested to hear it

    Unfortunately as expected you fail to address any of the points raised........

    Did you claim shams had “three of the best left fullbacks in the League” when you were wrongly claiming they didn’t try and sign Leahy ? Either you did or you didn’t (unless the knock on the head...).

    Couldn’t agree more EZ is our own version of Littlefinger from GOT thinks he’s clever but so easy to see through.

    As you say the faux balance- and lack lack of guile similar to LF is fairly pathetic and fools no one, hopefully EZ or should we say Lillyfinger has a better outcome .

    Cue the usual boring self obsessed reply - or perhaps LF correction EZ will show the maturity to ignore this (hopefully)

    Jesus, I might start rooting for Rovers in this title race, I didn’t realise they had no money and only 11 players, the big spenders at Bohs might catch them soon tho.

    Decent at times from Pats on Friday night, there was about 15 minutes in the second half where we couldn’t get the ball off UCD but they only really managed to create one chance and they look poor enough at the back. I still think they’ll stay up comfortably though.

    3 wins on the bounce for us, on to Monday we go, I just hope Rovers have enough pennies in the bank account to keep the club going until then, bless them.
    Here on a technicality.

    Five wins in six for Pat's suddenly, which I hadn't realised.

    There was still a lot of moaning in the first half in particular when another long ball over the top from midfield went out of play. I know Pat's fans are prone to moaning anyway - but is there a feeling Kenny is starting to get somewhere?

    Don't worry , Harry Kenny will give them a dig out on Monday, may even sit on the Rovers subs bench if they run out of 16year olds.

    Not really, 4 of the last 5 were against the bottom 4 and we were beaten comfortably by Derry in the other. A win on Monday night and we might be getting somewhere.

    Pats are better than there performances so far are Rovers not as good as there performaces so far, Monday night should make working that conumdrum out a little easier, maybe i think perhaps, possibly.

    I'd say the European dream has made Pats a bigger favor than whatever Kenny has changed. You see the season in a totally different way with that motivation
