    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.
    Funnily enough, not being cute and mastering the dark arts is something I've criticised Cork City for over the years. Interesting that you think we are good at it.

    Oh it was definitely there alright. Masters at it.

    Shels dominated Cabinteely last night on that car park pitch, a game that one sided normally would have resulted in a 3 goal win but no Shels can't finish the ball into the net and lose, an embarrassment to lose that game.

    Longford were my title favourites before the season and barring a collapse it's there for the taking. I don't see Cabinteely as serious contenders, the inexperienced managers of Shels and Bray are struggling, Drogheda are going backwards and the mess going on in Limerick should rule them out
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians

    I said it the other day, but pats have too many players just there getting a wage. The player's need to get their ar$e in gear, and it's Harry Kenny's job you do that I guess. Work to be done. Firing him would be utter stupidity, but hey I guess I'm biased when it comes to H.

    If you can’t blame the man that signs the players, trains the team , picks the tactics then who do you blame ? Shake your fist at the sky maybe !

    I think Liam O Brien was the mastermind behind Kenny when he was at Bray.

    The only classless cvnts are the ones singing a song praising a known sex predator.

    We offered him the job too but lowballed him and he turned it down. Looking like a bit of an oversight at the moment...

    I remember chatting to a few of you after the Belfield game and you said it had been coming, performances had been good and that combined with us being bad on the night made it a very one sided affair. Last night was the same but in reverse.

    Harps were solid and UCD resorted to launching it at times, on the counter and in general we were excellent and played some great football. We probably should have been out of sight a lot sooner.

    Massive relief for us to find a bit of form, we needed it as morale at the club was on the floor and attendances were tanking completely.

    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.

    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.
    Looking at the RTE highlights, it was not given for a handball, seems to be given for holding but there was no obvious foul viable in the footage. Even if there was a foul, I fail to see what the yellow card offence was.

    I though the ref was deplorable all game. He blew up constantly, would not play advantage (when there was a clear advantage), and allowed persistent fouling to go unchecked. he was out of the depth, he should go back to schoolboy games for more experience and training.

    Dundalk were very poor and didn't deserve three points but should have seen the game out when 2-0 up.

    Seems to have been given for a push, hard to see if there is one as the camera pans just as whatever happened happened but the ref is right there and a push isn't exactly something that he could really get wrong from that distance. The lack of appeals could be put down to the decision being made immediately and once he makes that decision he has to give a yellow really.

    Great win for Waterford away at St Pats. It was my first visit to Richmond Park and an enjoyable one with the Blues fans in fine voice in 2nd half with a few chants directed at St Pats over the Europa League controversy. First half was even enough with not many chances. Akinade came on and scored his 2nd goal in 4 games off the bench after a nice move. Elbouzidi made it 2 with a good finish soon after. Pats pressed for a goal back and had a few chances but Waterford broke away to get number 3 with Drinan.

    Hennessey was awful alright.In a game that wasn't dirty(as dirty goes) he somehow managed to book 6 players(4,Derry 2 Dlk) and send 1 off. 'Hennessey roulette' anytime he whistled for what he deemed to be a foul in 50/50 clashes(most of which weren't fouls at all);who's going to get this one? Making it up as he went along it seemed! He's terrible.

    Worst display of time wasting ever at Dalymount, Cork were embarrassing.
    Very tepid performance from Bohs looked leggy and lacked any zip. Cork scored off a free kick and played 11 behind the ball after that. They defended well but Bohs were limited and never got at them. Maybe the busy recent schedule caught up with us or maybe it was an off day but definitely our worst performance for a while.
