    There have been gangland feuds and killings in Dublin and elsewhere for years, I donít recall any places being deemed no go zones for football matches.

    Is "our wrestling team" an affectionate name for UCD Reserves ?

    Except that time last year when Rovers (I think it was) fans cancelled, or had cancelled, a bus to the Brandywell because of the Lyra McKee shooting.

    The same weekend there'd been 3 or 4 murders in Dublin - and loads more in the weeks beforehand. Some people are just irrational idiots.

    It's a reference to Harps', shall we say, no holds barred physical style of play, which us football connoisseurs at UCD can't help but look down on.

    Particularly came to a head in the 2015 season, when Harps beat us in the play-off. (There's some fun quotes in my One Night In Dudelange book around it )

    Was 1-0 Galway at h/t before all 11 players were subbed off with a new team for second half.

Murray going off with an injury is another concern. Seeing Sava on the bench was a bit of a surprise, ive never had that much confidence in him even as backup but the devil ye know and all that if he is to sign back.
    Only training with the club while he looks for a new club. Seen him at bray last season down in Longford and he was woeful

    Galway 2-0 Harps in Sligo tonight.

    Good run out for a mostly reserve side. McGinley, Todd, Timlin the only real starters from the Harps squad announced so far.

    Mark Russell came on in the second half too. After that most of the first team will likely play tomorrow.

    Mikey Place goal was something spectacular though. Went off injured two minutes later so he certainly had an interesting cameo.

    Galway looking handy though. Played some good football.

    Bohs 2-0 LTFC: very much a blowing off the cobwebs exercise for Town who used 20 players including trialists. Played a 16 year old in the middle second half who looked confident on the ball, I'm probably worried by a lack of experience this season but Daire Doyle seems very enthusiastic about what he's got to work with while I'm always impressed when ever I see Bohs they are always so well organised, would love to see long in a job with a few pound to spend one day.

    Also seen the first referee howler of the season, town awarded an indirect free kick inside the area after a pass back. Referee never got the wall back the 10 yards but allowed us to take it anyway, blew the whistle our lad struck it clean as ya like it was past the keeper and crossing the line only for the ref to blow for the Bohs wall encroaching on the ball before it was shifted, goal disallowed and re-take was of course blocked.

    Seemed a bizarre decision by the ref alright, particularly when the encroachment for the re taken kick was even more blatant. Competitive enough game. Longford have some decent players and played a bit of football. Danny Grant made a big difference when he came on and he and a lot of other Bohs players look as if they have kept fit during the break.
    Pretty chaotic getting in and out of AUL with a decent crowd turning up.

    Was that Matthew O'Brien who we signed from Phoenix FC? Daire Doyle said he has great potential to be a cracking player.

    It was indeed. Basically 2 months ago he was playing CM for phoenix in a relatively poor DDSL u17 league. My son has played all his schoolboy football alongside Matt. For a 16yr old he has great potential

    I know it's pre-season - and UCC are a half-decent non-league side in mid-season - but that has to be a disappointing result I'd have thought?

    Pre-season results are generally unimportant. Building fitness, getting players used to each other, working on tactics and trying to build performances are way more important.

    Cork may have plenty of things to worry about in the season ahead - winning a pre-season friendly is not one of them
