    The second half in Tolka was crazy, players slipping and sliding and the ball moving unpredictably on the surface. A wet February is a terrible time to start the season.

    Thought Sloggett was good in the middle. Smith was quiet enough but was almost like shels lined up 4-2-4 with Kabia and Shep high up on the wings.

    In fairness, I nearly felt sorry for the guy when Greener go a hold of him, thought Greener was gonna kill him and I think he thought that too, lad looked like he'd **** himself.

He may not have gotten to it but he didnt give himself a chance. Ye have to feel for Harps with less than 10sec from a rare win against Derry.
    He's always at that, loves standing outside the post so he can pull off dramatic saves

    Pretty gutted with that,we were well organised and looked untroubled for most of it,defended poorly for the goal but can't be too hard on them,if we can play like that for most of the games we'll be alright.
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Luckily Lopez not injured and the Burke inspired show that followed was the right response to the behaviour of Dalling other players and Fenn
    Thankfully no one was injured.

    Nothing new about Pico being involved in disgraceful, horrific lunges

    Definitely an improvement from last season.
    Derry didn't play well but dominated the 2nd half. Stone wall penalty on the 2nd foul on Mc Donagh.

    Derry will play better. Weather conditions were terrible for both teams and viewers.

    Took in Shels v Dundalk this evening for my first game in 2 years having been out of the country. Really entertaining game in an effort and blood + guts sense. Great to see Tolka “sold out”, even if most of the stadium was out of action, helped make a great atmosphere. Hopefully the crowds keep coming as it would make for a healthy addition to the league!

    Shels : Bravely went with a 4-4-2 with the aim of playing direct to Kilduff and having runners off him (Kabia / Sheppard / Dobbsjoining in) Worked well in patches, mainly down to the momentum gathered from winning second balls. Shane Farrell was a lot more effective than Dobbs due to his pace. Deegan / Poyton were exposed as a 2 man midfield at times due to their mobility and amount of space they had to plug in. Sean Quinn / Ryan Brennan made a big improvement when them came on ( Brennan/Quinn/Deegan as a trio could be the best blend) Luke Byrne + Danny OReilly at CB could cause issues due to their size, conceding two from set pieces is an early warning! Alex O’Hanlon showed glimpses of why he was so highly rated as a kid.

    Dundalk : Fairly disappointed in what I seen from Dundalk. Very industrial performance with 3 defensive midfielders playing. Sloggett is a good player but definitely should be playing deeper. More of a wrecking ball number 10 then a deft creative one (kinda like Jeff Hendrick) Perth finished the game with 6 defenders which could be seen as clever as they got away with 3 points, but it showed they were far closer to Shels than they should have been. Dundalk barely created a chance from open play and relied on set pieces again to make anything! Boyle and Gannon were excellent on a night that lent itself to bread and butter defending!

    Conditions definitely played a role in the quality of the game so I expect both teams to improve as the season opens up and they get into more of a groove. Dundalk will need to improve for the Rovers game next week but Perth will rightly point to 6 points out of 6 as the measure. That logic is fine until they’re picked off in Europe.

    Easy victory for Rovers in poor weather conditions against a hapless cork side. Not much if a workout to be fair, and would expect a different game against Waterford in Monday.

    On that point fair play to Sligo for getting the game on in those conditions.

    Looking at the tackle again above it was certainly a red card because it was 2 footed mainly. But it wasnt as 'horrific' imo as you seem to see it. Dalling was a fraction off it being 50-50 in terms of competing for the ball even if that competition was not well controlled. I dont think he lined up the player and took him out which is when 'more than a red' is deserved. It was a tackle out of its era and punsihed accordingly - even 10 years ago we'd be debating whether it was a straight red.

    I called it disgusting, which it was, not horrific, I never said "more than a red". Timing is irrelevant once you jump in studs up, two feet together, off the ground, that's disgusting to do.

    Now if you could stop putting words in people's mouths and defending stuff purely because it's against Rovers that'd be great thanks.
