    Games 28/29 Feb

    Predictions for this evening?

    I'd say 5 pages of Rovers/Dundalk bitching myself.

    Also, when was the last time LoI games took place on 29th Feb?

    Good call Stu.
    I'm determined to keep a bit of perspective tonight if we win lose or draw we are level 3 points ahead or 3 points behind with 32 games to go.
    Full house , good game, great to be alive

    Doing a quick check, it may have been in 1976.

    Liam Bossin taken off on a stretcher in a neck brace and being given oxygen after a clash with a harps player. He was down for over ten minutes and he never moved. I'm literally behind the towel about 8 rows back perfect view.

    The circumstances around that injury were bizarre. The pitch is barely playable due to the rain. Ball holding up etc. Bossin makes a save. Harps strike slides into shoot the follow up. Ball holds up on the line. Slides in again and scores. Ref gives goal. It then becomes apparent how bad the injury is he goes to the linesman and then gives a free out. This about three minutes after he originally gave the goal. Clearly the injury is serious and clearly the red was scared by the injury into making a terrible decision

    Town win away in Drogheda. Great result, sounds like they rode their luck at times but you couldn't ask for a better result for confidence.

    Niall Quinn in UCD tonight. Witnessed a proper First Division game. Lots of hoofing, and decided by a scrappy goal in the end which was probably a free out for a barge on the keeper.

    Still, good to be back.

    Great match and exactly what we needed as well result wise.
    Byrne and mceneff were excellent for rovers as was scales. Flores and Duffy excellent for dundalk.
    Byrne and mceneff won the midfield battle and that was that. Great advert for the league , super crowd two food teams.
    Great

    Out in Tallaght tonite for Rovers v Dundalk. Great goals and what an advert for the league! Thought Rovers just about deserved the win aswell. No stand out players really. Think Farrugia is hard done by having to play LWB. When rovers pushed on 2nd half and got him higher up the pitch he started to come into the game alot more! Gaffney was excellent in his cameo. But who gave McEneff the MOTM?? Wasnt in the game at all

    Re midfield once Shields was booked he was shown up for what he is because he couldn’t then engage in his usual cynical fouling and diving and he was made looking very second rate by Pico and Byrne as he failed to get near them as they scored

    Dogged organised display from Shels tonight thrilled with that 3 points great start to the season. Pats had most possession but they look soft could do with a Gary Deegan type in the middle and they were blunt in the final third they won't trouble the Top 4 spots this season

    It's not too often that anyone scores three against the league champions. Hat tip to Rovers for managing to do that this evening.

    The wonder boy was fairly quiet all match until his wonder goal that was a fitting winner in any match.

    No doubt the choir will start up with some premature deluded notions of grandeur (although Johnny 'Hot Take' Ward might be a little cautious this time). This Dundalk team us full of character and will not lie down - a 13 points point deficit turned into an 11 point winning margin last season. 3 points behind after 4 games is a minuscule blip

    Massive win for us tonight. Harps goal rightly ruled out. Can't believe the ref gave it at first. Hope Bossin is ok, barely moved during around 10 minutes before he was eventually stretched off. Could be out for awhile. First half was poor from us but we were far better in the second. Dalling was causing havoc down the left. Best atmosphere at the cross in while too.

    Total bolix. 'Wonder Boy' was sensational. Hopefully Mick McCarthy in the stand can see he's the best Irish midfielder. BTW, technically, his good was the football tonight from both teams? This is why we support LOI.
    False hope is worse than no hope. Ask Sligo.

    Just the one goal and one assist from jack tonight plus some fantastic passes and touches in midfield. Must try harder ��.
    Gaffney looked good in his cameo.
    Both Byrne and mceneff spoke well of dundalk in post match interviews on tv, good to see .

    Don't let your bias cloud your judgement. Shields has been the most consistent performer in the league for the last five years. If you really think Shields is second rate you know little about the game.

    I don't like Rovers but I can appreciate players like Byrne, Finn, McEniff, Grace, even Bolger
