    BS, never happened, the reason they would was they were trying to win. Nearly all claims of match fixing are BS especially in light volume fixtures like the LOI. I met friend outside PP one day clutching a roll of money, he had tried to get a substantial amount of money on an outcome involving Sligo Rovers in Europe, they offered him 5% of his stake at half the price.

    The problem is getting on and getting paid, of you do manage by timing and subterfuge in getting laid in a shop if the layer suspects fixing they will downright refuse to pay and there is nothing you can do about it. Bookmakers software is so sophisticated that it can detect punters that are canny and don't lose enough money and restrict them without a trader even looking at their account.

    If you use an exchange any suspect betting patterns will also lead to suspension of the market/payment and the amounts available on either side of a LOI game are so thin that 200e could shift an outcome from 2s to levels and that is an outright not a derivative, the derivs are normally so thin and overound to be not worth bothering about anyway.

    Wishful thinking from team challenging for fourth place!
    .Having said that, if they are drawn apart in the semis , I think you are probably right.

    Good news for the game down there should create a buzz , Galway badly missed from the premier imo.

    Two top first division teams and a crack outfit from LSL.
    Makes a difference from last year anyway, Galway away, Derry away, and Cork in the semi.

    Tough draws for the Hoops too, Harps, Drogs at home , Galway away.

    At some point we will have Rovers/ Bohs final , but that will require the continued absence of FAI officials at the draw. I expect the draw for the semi final to be in the Abbotstown bunker

    Bohs, UCD, Waterford, Rovers are liable to have a player or two each called up to the U21 (or senior) squad that weekend. We could conceivably see all four quarter-finals postponed! Presumably Bohs and Rovers would take their chances minus any call-ups.

    I would'nt take a chance if they asked our Kitman to go to the U21 or seniors

    Considering how we played in previous two rounds I wouldn’t be sure ! But yes, obviously the draw everyone else wanted.

    Not a peep from the club yet.

    My favorite story I heard from that cup game is that prior to the game arrangements were made for Limericks split of the gate to be paid by cheque which is hilariously villainous if true.

    You will hear nothing from (this incarnation) of the club about anything ever again I'd say.

    It's a corpse floating at the bottom of the first division they'll poke a few holes in it with a stick in about a months time and twill sink.

    Then comes the best part of every league of ireland season the off season

    Probably not. Someone is updating the Twitter page occasionally, but that's about it. Seems like a long time since POS' semi-regular pronouncements.
