    Is that a 4-4-2 he is playing then if both Greene and Carr also started or is one of those sitting back a little ?

    Also who was getting in ahead of Watts earlier in the season?
    It's a 4-3-3 with Carr on the left and Watts on the right, but Watts tucks in and we're heavily weighted towards attacking on the left. Joey is a terrific player but he's not going to get up and down like Clarke, but he's much more solid defensively than Clarke so Watts has more freedom to play inside.

    Ethan has had very little football since missing two months with a hamstring injury but, at the moment, O'Brien is keeping him out. I suspect with everyone fully fit Bradley's preferred formation is Grace, Lopes and O'Brien in a three with Boyle and Clarke as wing-backs.

    In other news, football fans disagree with ref decision against their club. Shocker  what next ? Dundalk manager thinks they deserve lots of penalties?

    You really can't get more devious and conniving than that.

    18 minutes must be the longest ever additional time in the first half of a LOI game.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    under Pat Fenlon towards the end each half was 100 minutes long (or maybe it just felt that long)

    who said the decision was the issue ? I simply explained why Doyle gets stick in any Bohs matches he refs - even when he has a good game.The fact that he is a sham is unforgivable, irrespective of his decisions
    Are you seriously claiming he is not a shams fan ? or that he doesn't give marginal decisions ?

    Thought Harps put in what was easily the worst performance of any team I've seen this season.
    We were ok, didn't do much more than what was necessary. After the third, there was danger that Harps would collapse if we pushed them, didn't bother though.
    Dreadful defending for our third and fourth. Harkin made his shots look so casual, suppose they were really.

    I'd think Lopez will be running clear of Joey O'Brien the next time he scores a goal after the way he grabbed him when he headed in the second

    Watching Soccer Republic and the Harps lads' are spot on when they say that it was schoolboy stuff, awful defending and there should have been a second peno for Junior I think. One thing I'd always have expected from a Horgan Harps side would be resolute at the back and put a boot through a ball when needed, none of that Friday. Cork looked aimless in Tallaght until they were 2 down and then seemed to look to attack and created a couple of chances. In Oriel Kelly was served a decent square pass from Shields that he could have buried before the lucky break off Hoare. UCD kept no shape defensively, pulled all over the place and didnt take the rare chance they got.

    If I were a manager Id ban backflips or players jumping on the back of another player to celebrate a goal. Injury waiting to happen, divot on the pitch or an unexpected piggyback. Steve Morrow is always the example on that!
