    Why so few Shams there? Usually travel in big numbers no matter what.

    That's the way a town should observe the winning of the league, open the gates and celebrate in the rain on the pitch with the sound of champagne bottles being uncorked.

    Congratulations to Dundalk on another league title. Streets ahead of every other team in this league and will probably complete the treble to top it off.
    Vinny Perth deserves massive credit for winning the league in his first season as head coach especially following on from Kenny and his success.

  10. Thanks From:

    While tonight was all about getting three points to win the title, it was also a fantastic advert for LOI football. Rovers showed great respect to the league by putting out a strong side and they left nothing on the pitch. They ran themselves into the ground. They are a side that is only going to get stronger.

    Really enjoyable game as a neutral,great goals and a bit of spice,the lesson is with proper investment this is what our league can be,unfortunately the spectacle of playing it in Oriel Park is why its not taken seriously by enough people in this country......

    Congratulations to Dundalk - clearly the best team in the league this year and, even though we had a couple of chances to get a draw, were the better team today. I'm excited about next season when we have O'Neill more bedded in, Farrugia available and hopefully Jack Byrne still at the club. Still lots to fight for this year and maybe a cup final against Dundalk if we can get past Bohs.

  15. Thanks From:

    Congrats to Dundalk, far and away the best team in the League.
    Credit to Perth (and Giller) on not alone keeping them on course but possibly surpassing what Stephen Kenny achieved last season. Cap doffed

    The only way we can improve is going toe to toe with teams like you. Might bite us on the arse on Friday if we're fatigued but that's the chance you take. I wouldn't have been happy if we'd played an understrength team tonight and, to be fair, I never thought Bradley would. I know he gets lots of flak from opposition fans but he respects the league and the teams in it.

    Credit where credit is due

    Bradley showed courage and pride with his team selection and the attitude of the players was excellent. It was also a high risk strategy as the manager has left himself open to criticism if Bohs turn them over on Friday night. There is a thin line between bravery and foolishness and for once I hope Bradser does not fall the wrong side of that on Friday.

    Bradley has every right to expect that his team of full time pros have enough recovery time to be sufficiently match fit in four days for the Bohs game.
    The sort of intensity last night is the ideal preparation for his players?
    Congrats to Dundalk, they are a powerful team.

    Congratulations to Dundalk on their league title win.
    Best team in the country by far.
    That Duffy goal deserved to win any game.
    I was surprised there was so many empty spaces in Oriel Park given the importance of the game.

    Congrats to DFC the league table doesn't lie over the course of the season , best team wins.
    If we are going to challenge next year we need a bigger squad to cope with injuries and suspensions, there is'nt a lot between the two first 11's and turning a 10 points to 1 in dundalks favour this season into a more balanced total is do able without wholesale changes as there has'nt been much between the teams head to head this year but winning the league will require a big investment in squad depth.
    Nuts in my view to play the first team last night with the cup on Friday.
    It was said above by Dalymount Thrower that "[COLOR=#333333]Bradley has every right to expect that his team of full time pros have enough recovery time to be sufficiently match fit in four days for the Bohs game" [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#333333]but would they be in better shape if they hadn't played? the only possible answer is yes and that is before we find out if anyone took a knock last night.
    If we lose on Friday particularly if the performance looks a bit insipid then people will rightly say that last night was a mistake and for no good reason, i don't buy this putting down a marker for next season stuff , if we had won last night would Dundalk be going into next season any more worried about us if they won the league by 9 or 15 points (or whatever).

    We should still have enough to win the match and no excuses if we don't , The Management team made the decision to play so they cant use it as an excuse just get on with it now.
