    The kind of performance in Richmond that make you question your sanity. I don’t know where Harry goes from here. I’m obviously biased towards how ****e we were rather than what Waterford did right.

    I only saw the second half but we looked on top until 60 mins in. Then we sat back and invited Bohs onto us. They still didn't create anything of note though.

    We still need a rebuild. It'll be a struggle for the rest of the season, but we did look a lot steadier and we'll start to pick up more points and make it much more difficult against the top sides.

    Same approach, but much more solid defensively which won us the game. Great to see that back, that's where we can build from.

    Also won a lot more 2nd ball tongiht.

    Huge 3 points for us. Delighted.

    Bohs had a lot of possession but created very little. We had more shots than them despite limited possession.

    Bohs were better than they were down in Turners Cross, but definitely not as good as it seems like they've been recently.

    In fairness we should have seen out the victory at 2-0 up, but the fact that the ref saw Sean Hoare being grabbed in the box, and clearly made the conscious decision not to give it, should not be ignored.
    The wind was strong there tonight, blew all your players off their feet. Free after free went your way. I'd like to see the free kick count.
    As Irishmen we dilute our sense of nation by depending on the English to bring us our balls

    Cabo are beating most teams to be fair to them. Our draw away to them a while ago is looking like a better result than it seemed at the time.

    It’s not the wind’s fault you kept fouling us 🙄

    Decent game in Limerick. Bray better in the first half, missed one absolute sitter from right in front of goal. Had a real scramble in the second half too, with the ball eventually knocked in but it was offside.

    Shaun Kelly scored with a looping shot from about 25 yards, and we held on comfortably enough.

    Very impressive stuff considering all the instability around the club, and the lack of wages too.

    Markets Field left in no doubt as to how the Blue Army feels about Sean Connor.

    That was an entertaining game in Finn Park. Finally good to see Harps click a bit and play a bit of football. Our first goal was just sublime.

    UCD were pretty poor though. Surprisingly poor.

    Dundalk should have been home and hosed after going two up. I'd forgive the first goal, but the second was slack defending. Toal leaving his man unmarked, poor stuff.

    The penalty, according to Dundalk fans we were chatting to afterwards, was for a handball. Despite being the closest to it, we'd no idea what it was for.

    Dundalk made a real effort after the equaliser, you wouldn't have known they were a goal down. We were glad to see the final whistle.

    On the ref (Rob Hennessey), I thought he was grand, up until after we had our penalty.
    Dundalk, Shamrock Rovers, and Cork are great at drawing a foul when there's one going. We aren't, we probably need to be cuter.
    After the penalty, the ref bought everything Dundalk went for. There must have been a dozen odd frees in a row he gave to Dundalk. This isn't something I have noticed with Dundalk in previous seasons, but there was a bit of off the ball fouling, which occasionally got called out, usually wasn't. Interesting change from the Kenny era.

    Happy with the result from the Derry end. This time last year, we'd have lost that by four or five. A bit of heart has come back.

    On Oriel, the new toilets were open. No hot water or hand towels, but there was heating.
    The chip van has upgraded their produce, a serious contender for best chips in the league, especially considering the sad decline of the Finn Park away side van.
    Best of all, no holding us in after the game for 10 minutes, and no gardaí with the dogs.
    Restore access to the bar, and you almost forgive the fact you can't see the nearside, left hand corner area of the pitch from the away section.

    Can't see the far corner in Sligo up past their singing section from most of the away end

    Can barely see from Des Kelly unless your near the back

    Behind Goal In Pats you can see **** all

    Finn Harps worse than Oriel

    Not defending Oriel bit that's all true
