    As I said, we're the best team in the country. What a win!

    Whether it's Filippo doing a good job, the players playing for their futures, or most likely just getting back to themselves after Perth deservedly got the sack, it's working.

    The Faroes side winning 6-1 tonight is good as it should eliminate any complacency on our part.

    Send the kids out against Rovers on Sunday.

    The Aviva? Really? Wouldn't Dundalk prefer to play at Oriel Park? I know in normal times it wouldn't be up to UEFA standards for a play-off game, but surely the fact that no-one can attend the game would make it OK?

    Brian Kerr reckons the KI team will not fear Dundalk so, beware of over confidence. Could be another tight squeeze.

    That was a painless penalty shoot out, for a change.

    As novel as non Champions winning a Champions League? I do get what yer saying but it isnt that unusual for lower ranked domestic league teams to progress further than higher ranked sides. Im am not going near the argument best teams etc. We all know that the draw in Europe impacts on the progressions of sides.

    What's the prize money like for the group stage now vs 2016?

    I'm seeing various reports of the next round being worth €3m or so which is obviously huge but I thought Dundalk made more than that in 2016?

    That’s the basic prize money for reaching the group stages. Dundalk’s win and draw in 2016 boosted that, aswell as other payments that are calculated once the tournament is over.

    He based part of that on a 3-0 win not copping that it was a walkover score. Its another banana skin where we are favourites.

    DFC were on 1.1m at kick off, and moved to 1.4 with the shoot out win. If we beat the Faroes team the prize money moves to 2.8 or 2.9M for the Group Stage.

    Then its bonus of 0.5m per win, and 0.25m for a draw, both are up from 2016, so if we make the group, and repeated 2016 of 1 win and 1 draw, total prize would be around 3.65m. There may be a consolation payment still to be added, I`m not sure, but the difference from 2016 to 2020m is the route, this year if we make it, will be via EL, in 2016 when we beat BATE that was in CL, and guaranteed Group EL, then a free shot at CL group v Legia, thats where a lot of the extra prize money came from.

    As for the game, thought Dundalk were clearly the better side, and should have won it in 90. Not sure they had a shot on target after that bullet header, which of course we all missed due to dodgy stream at the start, to be fair it improved to near perfection after.

    Also thought Sheriff were actually worse that Levadia Tallinn who we beat home and away in 2018 in EL, so as in 2016 when we started with FH of Iceland, the draw was kind.

    Next game should be viewed as a golden opportunity to make the group stage, lets face it, we or any Irish side will never get a better shot, just look at the list of other fixtures next week that Daniel McD tweeted, and you will see the strong line up.

    Nothing taking for granted, as they won 6-1 tonight and same prizes available to them, with a 3m + bonus, but we will be strong favs, still need to turn up and win the game mind !

    The wide spaces of the Aviva will actually be a huge advantage in my view.

    Brilliant night, the whole family in the spare room crowded around the monitor cheering the penalty shoot out win, 6 fans back 'at football' !!!

    Well done Dundalk, delighted for you, I know people are rightly highlighting that the Faroe islands team beat Tblisi 6-1 but am I right to say that the Georgians weren't at full strength due to covid?
    I presume that our coefficient will go up should Dundalk prevail?

    I would say its more to do with the stage of the competition, all play off games would need to be held in higher category stadium, regardless of capacity (3k seats in oriel park v 52k in Aviva) - not to mention no one can attend !

    I also think the wide spaces will suit Dundalk well in the Aviva next week. Still a home game in Ireland, first one this season in Europe.

    Does the money earned in the qualifiers (1.4m) not add onto the group stage 2.9m? Bringing the total to over 4.4m, even before any money earned from group stage draws and wins.

    Dundalk would earn 2.92m if they qualify to the groups, adding to their 1.4m already earned, similar to 2016.

    is it fair to say that Irish managers/coaches are arrested by fear? The negativity of relatively/fairly successful managers domestically like Fenlon/Caufield/Perth seeping through to the players, a lack of trust leading to being unable to perform or get the results in Europe?

    Dundalk's co-efficient for 2021 now stands at 10.000 and will probably go higher.

    Should mean they will be seeded for each of the first 3 qualifying rounds of the ECL if they don't win the league this year which looks unlikely.
