    SSE Airtriicty League 17th/18th/20th/21st May

    Premier Division, Today Fri 17th May UCD AFC and Shamrock Rovers The UCD Bowl, ko 19:45De Dodder Derby Another instalment in this an historic fixture. The Students are down in the dumps at the minute between hitting the books for exams and hitting the crossbar at Turners Cross. But as usual individual players are the talk of the town with Gary 'Gaz'/'Gar' O'Neill, Liam 'Liamo' Scales and Neil 'Neil' Farrugia all both rumoured and predicted to be joining other FCs on transfer and/or trial (some of the clubs are at the top of an entire league, some are not).


    This should be another cracking game of ball and with the increased respect for youd football after the UEFA U17s maybe the UCD players won't get rudely shouted at as much as in the past.

    The Poolside Cafe in THE Student Centre (3 mins walk from The UCD Bowl) has delicatessan meals available up to 20:00.
    Beside the Student Centre The Clubhouse Bar has hot meals as well as alcohol.

    Tough game for Galway tonight with a strong on paper Longford team visiting. Hoping for the best(a draw).
    Big derby night in Dublin should bring the capitals soccer followers out in their numbers. The between the canals derby in Inchicore such be interesting, are Bohs regressing and the effectiveness of the new Pats style of play at home? are questions we may get an answer too.
    Shamrock R should get back on track with it being the exam season in the other big game.

    Comfortable 2-0 win for Dundalk at the Cross this evening. McEleney's control for the opener was Zidane-esque, and to think that Cork fans used to say he was an overrated diver who never turned up against them ;D

    Rovers should have won by 3 or 4 glad to get out with 3 points in the end.
    6 points clear of 3rd place.
    Big game on Monday between
    Dundalk and bohs.
    Wouldn't be confident against harps on Monday but hopeful

    Watched most of the Cork v Dundalk game on skorlive, can be hard to follow with the long single camera view, and no commentary, but what do you expect for free. Dundalk looked quite comfortable and didnít seem to have to raise it much. McEleney looked at last to be back to his pre injury best, great cross by Gannon for the second.

    Disappointing another penalty miss, 2 in a week (although v Bohs shouldnít have been given), second peno miss by Hoban this season already, red cards are never good news and thatís the second in 3 weeks, players have to be better disciplined when on a yellow.

    Still a good result, keeps us top, I think thatís 6 in a row wins now v Cork, including the Pres Cup away, I didnít think Cork would seriously challenge Dundalk this year but I never thought they would be this poor.

    Thatís a ridiculous decline for them, given the nucleus of the team are still there, plus they have Europe in 6 weeks time.

    Was the dundalk penalty in at or around the box?

    Not that it matters these days.
    The refs should just start the match with a peno for dundalk and get it over with.
    Would save time and avoid the tension

    Dundalk were much stronger than Cork but Gary Rogers still had to pull off two excellent saves. Dundalk are getting into their stride and will hopefully will have Benson and McGrath back soon.

    Yeah, was a strange kind of game. Rovers the better side, but we'd missed an open goal before ye scored, and the goal only came about because of a complete brain fart in our defence. Very annoying to ultimately have lost like that, but it was a better performance than recently and hopefully we can build on that and take something off Cork on Monday.

    Rovers nowhere near as good as they were in the game in Tallaght, but in the end of the day, both games were worth three points to ye.

    Meanwhile, bloody Waterford...

    Enjoyable game in Inchicore. Thought it wasn't going to be our night when Dinny missed the peno, but Mandroiu's free kick was a peach and we had the chances to win it after that. Pats had a goal disallowed near the end so the draw was probably a fair result.

    Great evening for football and good atmosphere down there. A good point to stop the rot and hopefully set us up for a good performance up in Dundalk.

    Watch out - our lads are taking intensive dark arts masterclasses this weekend.

    Naturally Dean Jarvis is being removed to a safe house to prevent any retribution attempts

    dundalk winners all over bar the pen from hoban!
    he hit it so well and all but it the post intervened.p l e a a s e stop with the silly run-up and just blast that bloody thing.
    dundalk sauntered home even with 10 men ,result never in doubt aftter jarvis tapped in the 1st.
    cork rallied a little after both goals and the sending off and could have equalised just after jarvis had scored but the response was a patchy one and dundalk seen that rare patch off cork pressure off quite easily tbf.

    cant quite understand the s/o re mountney? 2nd card was benign enough like but wouldn't mind seeing it again.

    dundalk in confident mood for bohs on monday
