    Will Dundalk get sucked into the relegation battle?

    1 point potentially from 3 games - yup! Its relegation form even if unlikely over the full 18. Just dont have the composure with the ball, very sloppy at times, dont cope at all with being pressed, no pace to passing, defensively frail, Gannon well out of form by his standards as an example. I havent figured out whether they are playing through Colovic a lot or whether he is the one that is stepping up.

    With the quality of ball that Colovic can deliver, it would better suit a Georgie Kelly than McMillan.... On the up side, Murray so far has done more since the forced sub of Mountney. Cant really see what happened for the Murphy injury, strained the calf muscle maybe as it didnt look like any real clash with another player.

    Well that fairly ringing the changes at half-time! VP annoyed with a lack of effort or a hint of desperation!?

    Didnt know about Johnny Glynns daughter being rescued until I was listening to OTB AM and I heard Johnny being interviewed. Hopefully our country will lift itself from the gloom we are in at present.

    Great comeback but shocking defending for that corner.

    Some contrast between the first 75 and last 15. The red card certainly turned the game.

    Not sure what to make of it really. Perth is hanging on to his job.

    Champions League next week and we've Sligo & Derry away coming up. Huge improvement needed.

    Was all very 'pre season' from Dundalk. Could have nicked the 3 points maybe should have but would have been unfair on Waterford. Slowed things down, broke up play and hung in. Dundalk only seemed to play at all v 10 but were still wasteful, sloppy passing, poor frees in good positions. The goal seemed to lift the tempo also. Have to stop shipping soft goals especially like the second Waterford one where a bad touch from Odwua had us srambling. Still think McMillan needs a batch of chances to net one. Cant see how the peno shout was offside but with the single camera angle hard to properly judge so would be disingenuous to call it stonewall. With respect to the cup, the season hangs on a perfromance next Wednesday now. Up to Bohs to chase Rovers or it will be a saunter to the title!

    Thought Oduwa looked very capable when he came on, especially in the last 15. Himself and Colovic would be positives for Dundalk in the European games,
    Chris Shields looks shot.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Dundalk were awful, even the goals two are set pieces and that’s the only way they were likely to score. Very, very poor football from them and if they carry that over to Europe they are out already.

    anyone else not getting an actual stream from Cork here just the cover photo thingy?

    It took a while for Oduwa to look dangerous. He started off with the multiple turns, holding the ball but not really going anywhere. He then started running at defenders and showed what he could do. He'd be a nightmare to defend against and a couple of one-two moves that worked nicely. If he started to drive more in to the box you could see him nabbing a few penos. He could move off the wing too if he adapted some. First time he got some proper competative time so will improve no doubt. Im presuming Colovic was being minded ahead of CL as while both are lefties, would be more effective than throwing McMillan on and taking one of them off instead. Sheilds not in form at all. I wouldnt call him shot but there's more expected of him, with the players around him, than doing what he is excellent at which is breaking things up in midfield. Its like he is being expected to play the 'O'Donnell role' more and more but S'OD was a natural passer along with the midfield graft. Its like a side that is being rebuilt and the manager doesnt know yet who to pair up and different combinations of players being tried. Though if there were no injuries ye still get the feeling that the old reliables would get the nod bar Colovic so far.

    That's a decent summary to be fair.
    From what I'd seen of him, stevie used his positioning to break up play as much as throwing himself into tackles. But Shields looked like he couldn't do anything right this evening, and only a fool would fail to acknowledge what a big part he's been of Dundalk in the last couple of years.

    I'd like to see what Leahy would do for Dundalk at LB.

    Unfortunately it's hard to see how Dundalk will progress next week.

    Sheridan fairly riled Perth up, telling him he's getting sacked anyway.
