    Compared to last year?
    It's definitely further away from the Aldi side of the ground than it used to be.

    Yeah can people please stop saying this about Harps pitch, it hasn't been narrowed at all this season, compared to past seasons maybe but certainly not mid this season.

    It's been the same size since the first game this season. Derry played on the same pitch and won comfortably this season already, can hardly be used as any sort of excuse this time round.

    It's not an excuse, far from it. I mean we needed to adapt our style of play to suit it and the way Harps were set-up. We failed to do that and deserved nothing from the game.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    That's a fair comment.

    I think there was an assumption from Derry that they just had to turn up. That's exactly the sort of vibe given by Kevin Deery in his pre-match comments anyway. Harps done their homework, got it spot on, and Derry had no plan B.

    Very comfortable 2-0 win tonight v Waterford. Parkhouse's second goal will definitely win goal of the month if their still is one. Poor crowd tonight. 1,300 max.

    Good few cracking goals already these season, goal of the season will be a tough choice.

    It was. Some change from that Waterford side and the one we played in April.

    Not sure what Devine was thinking in the second half, but went a bit weird with his tactics in the second half. For a while we played with just Coll on the left. Strange stuff, but still probably should have won by more.

    Fair play to those Waterford fans who came up, some journey home of a Monday night. Unfortunate the way the games have fallen that they’re back in the Brandy next Monday too.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Good job Kenny Sheils isnt about to get stuck in to such a debate!! Though maybe the positioning of the dugouts might have been a bigger concern for him...
