    Dundalk know how to score. If only they could defend they may have picked up some points in this group. Still,better to be in it than not.

    Decent performance all told, albeit against an Arsenal reserve side who really underwhelmed for 70 minutes of that match. Probably their best performance of the group tbh.

    First time since 1957 an Irish team has scored twice against an English team in Europe. 3-2 defeat for Shamrock Rovers in Old Trafford, having lost 6-0 at home.

    That was a decent performance. Holding Arsenal to a 4-2 win where they had to work hard to make sure they did enough, is something to be proud of. What a lovely goal by Flores, off his right foot. Dundalk played quite confidently at times, good passing etc, but the same old mistakes of gift wrapping goals for teams continued again tonight. A lazy, no-look clearance from Boyle for Arsenal's first, and he was raging with himself, and he wasn't the only one. Nothing to be done about Elneny's goal. Overall, I was happy that they still plugged away at 4-1, which I thought was a little harsh on them, trying to do the right things, and got their just rewards of an excellently headed 2nd goal from Hoare. Shields did well again, passing well. Rogers made a couple of decent saves also. Overall, even though it wasn't their strongest team, they were just too good for Dundalk. The massive what-if of the night was the glorious chance right before half-time to make it 2-2. Though I feel Arsenal would have pulled away anyhow. Would love to have seen Oduwa cause havoc and potential penalty kick mayhem as a sub for the last 10 minutes, but I presume he's injured? Still, no shame whatsoever. They can be pleased with many things about this campaign, but plenty to learn from too.
    Also, with events unfolding elsewhere in the Europa League, three teams finished bottom, and with zero points; Dundalk, Ludogorets, and Gent. A 3-1 defeat for Ludogorets against LASK means they and not Dundalk finish up as the absolute worst team in this season's competition, with a -12 goal difference. Dundalk and Gent finished joint-second last with goal differences of -11. Silver linings!

    So ends another season in Europe and I must say it has to go down as a rather successful one. No side went out easily in the qualifying rounds, with lots of good performances along the way. A 3rd Group Stage qualification in 9 years was a real bonus. Not bad for a Country with no League. Imagine what we could do if we actually had any money!

    That is one that escaped me too, tremendous result that for Linfield in 1970, plus City had won the league too not too long before this. So this has to be the only time a team from North or South has beaten an English team in Europe? Some going.

    Bohs beating TNS and Derry beating Gretna technically count as wins over English clubs in Europe

    It would only they are Welsh and Scottish sides !!! We can probably add Bohs in though as one of the most significant wins v UK side, the 2-1 win away to Aberdeen (lost on agg) was very impressive. The 3-2 win at home v Rangers in mid 80's was another notable result.

    Dundalk were unbeaten at home from 1976-82 (missed one season not qualifying but on many played two rounds), had some notable results, mostly draws and at home including, PSV, Celtic, Porto and Spurs, one big win Hajduk Split (77) - but hammered away in second leg, so only one significant win really in that period, although played in 3 rounds* in 1979, and that was the old EC.

    *On that I read earlier in the year, no Irish team had played in 4 consecutive rounds until 2020, (completely open to correction on this) when Dundalk again did it, fortunate draws maybe, and all one legs, Celje Slovenia / Inter Andora / Sheriff Moldova / KI of Faroes, won 2 mind, and the easier ones, but still think Sheriff being the much higher ranked team was a great feat winning that on pens.

    Well the point is both TNS and Gretna are based in England.

    Oh you're right actually. They used to play in England, which is the confusion.

    So that just leaves TNS as the last English team an Irish side scored twice against in Europe.

    That's a fair point I suppose on TNS, but Gretna is near Dunfries on the Scottish border, unless they like Gretna play 'over the border', but for the Euro game v Derry, I think the game was played at a bigger SPL ground.

    Gretna v Derry was played at Fir Park, Motherwell.

    My bad on Gretna. Their previous career in English football threw me.

    TNS is definitely an English-side playing in Wales. Swansea don't suddenly stop being Welsh just because they play their football in the English pyramid

    *Bohs knocked Aberdeen out of 2000/01 UEFA Cup. The two away goals were enough.

    Doesn't really add anything to the discussion but couldn't see it written down without the urge to correct it. The return leg in Tolka, holding out with 10 men is one of the great Bohs nights.

    Bohs won on away goals vs Aberdeen.
    Shels played 4 rounds in 2004.
