    Finished 2-1 to Cluj who scored winner in 88th min, reports from those who watched it live on the available stream said it was a very good work out.

    Hoban and Flores both went close with chances, but seemed Cluj upped the pace big time last 20 mins.

    CSKA Moscow next on Friday.

    Was a decent match to watch. Dundalk were competative considering it was a 2nd outing. Cluj had the bit between the teeth 2nd half. I dont know if they upped the tempo really and more we ran out of steam. Injury to Patching looked like a broken collarbone or wrist, hopefully not but went off when the arm up in a sling so ddint look good. McEleney and Murray werent in the squad after the UCD game so atrition already making its mark lol, that or our midfielders are made of glass, game was stopped for a cut to Sloggetts head also. Good header from Boyle to score but the defending was poor. Just like any European game they hardly got a sniff and the a couple of neat passes and they buried it. If there is a big gap still it is being clinical with chances as all the possession and dominance in the world is no good unless its made count which is what happened really. Great work out at high intensity though you could see the players that have come in are a bit off the pace of the rest.

    First pre season game, bunch of trailists. I wouldn't read too much into it. Think we lost or drew with them in a similar game ahead of the 2017 season. That doesn't mean we shouldn't be concerned about our squad but this one game isn't too much of an indicator on its own.

    Totally agree, pre-season results are meaningless. The best example of this is probably Pats last year playing 7 friendlies, scoring 22 goals and conceding 1. Then in 36 league games scored just 29 goals, conceding 35.

    So far this season in 2 games itís 11Ė1 on aggregate and I donít think Iíve seen one fan thatís happy with our forward options as things stand

    No, don't think that's it at all, it was actually called off yesterday or the day before. Originally, it was listed as venue TBC - I just assumed the Carlisle was undergoing some work on the pitch, perhaps.
    Maybe an alternative venue couldn't be found? Just wondering. I know a lot of our Dublin-based fans are not best pleased, missing an early chance for a reunion.

    All this weekend's games have been called off due to a refereeing seminar.

    All LoI referees are attending and for a LoI team to play a pre-season friendly it has to be a LoI referee in charge.
    I phoned the speaking clock to hear a voice speak, it said - "At the tone you will be very much alone"

    Clubs can't play friendlies before 3pm on Sunday.

    Harps were supposed to play UCD tonight but it's been changed to 3pm on Sunday, presumably just to p!ss off the referees, who only informed clubs of this seminar inside the past few days.

    Saw the first 25 mins of this. CSKA on another level as you’d expect with the likes of Russia's golden boy from the World Cup Alan Dzagoev on the pitch. They carved Dundalk apart for the two goals but Dundalk had one great attack where they got in behind and Duffy got on the end of a cross but didn’t get a good enough connection to keep it on target

    You tuned out too early as Dundalk got to grips with the opposition from about then onwards. Vinny Perth in a post match interview (2:14 mins video interview in the link below)

    "In the last 70 minutes, we were outstanding. It was an amazing workout. We've played two teams of the highest level and we've competed with them. I'm really happy."
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2m0MhcK3xX8

    Dundalk have been very impressive over the two friendlies in Spain against Cluj and CSKA

    Shels 1-0 LTFC: Kilduff with a tap in from a poorly defended corner. Longford dominated the ball in the first half, faded a little in the second but much improved showing from last week against Bohs. Draw would have been far. Shels very unimpressive.
