    I think Molde have underestimated us and now are playing with a really high intensity. Keep it solid and get over this spell they will tire. We need a spell of keepball!!!!!

    I think you're spot on. Can't help that Molde have been playing two games a week every week since June, which is amazing. But Dundalk really under the cosh now.

    Also, found a game where Dempsey and Beglin, the two commentators, did line up against each other. Shamrock Rovers 7-3 UCD in a League Cup game in Sept 82. I'm sure as defenders they both enjoyed it!

    Different attitude from Molde this half alright and the goal was coming. Dundalk need to settle now and try get some possession. Molde might tire given the busy schedule they’ve had (according to the commentary anyway).

    Haven’t been watching but sounds like after a good 1st half, Molde have upped their game in the 2nd half and turned it around

    Yeah, first half wasn't a great game of ball to be honest. Molde had 60% possession and six corners to nil, but in fairness Dundalk created more and had a goal very softly ruled out before taking the lead.

    Second half then they haven't been able to live with Molde really. A bit ominous ahead of the rest of the group; I think Molde have been quite wasteful in the final third, and Rapid and in particular Arsenal will probably be more creative.

    Yeah, once they hit the higher gears, Dundalk just couldn't get any foothold in the game. Molde just a different side in the second half, dominated completely.

    It's not that relevant but it would be interesting to consider how the 2016 side at their peak would have done. I dont think Molde were better than sides we got results against even in the second half. Great learning curve for the uninitated players. We looked like we had lost our own game management for Europen ties. Still we were in it til he end and something to build on. When ye consider the manager's experience, if we had won he'd be head hunted!!

    I know molde stepped it up second half but it looked like dfc came out for the second half playing a different set up..that didnt help. Parking the bus is hard to do

    Reminds me of 2011 a little. The achievement is really making the group stage. This is not the same team and of course manager of 2016 and you are stepping up in class at this stage of the competition. Said before the game I thought 1-1 was possible but not to be.

    If we had being playing like that in the league we'd have 6-9 points more. It showed what this side can do, just need to be consistant in all competitons.

    Decent enough effort from Dundalk,15 mins into the second half a lot of players looked tired and tbf to Molde they upped the speed of the game considerably ,probably just needed to freshen it up a little earlier as the minute they scored their 2nd they started to close up the game and a couple of players were having mares most notably Duffy and Gannon who was horrendous.

    Had predicted 1-2 on another forum and I think on the balance of play this was a fair result. Dundalk defended well in general but the goal was coming and were out of ideas in the second half when they needed to be a little more creative. Hopefully they can keep the scores down in the next two games.
