    So the Pub team are up in Sligo tonight provided Sligo are serving at least a €9 meal within the ground.
    Will John Sheridan do media tonight or send out his wingman again??

    Chance for Cabo to show they will be there at the end of the season tonight, win or at least take a point and people will have to start believing in them.
    They signed two players at the weekend Steven Kinsella back from Everton and Jack Connolly back from Sunderland.

    I fancy Rovers to get a result in Bray (13/2 with PP) Thomas Olluwa is a goal machine and Dean Williams needs minutes , playing together they are as potent a strike force as there is in the league.

    The 105 minute restriction will make things tight for Waterford to get in and out.

    The Sligo game is tomorrow night.

    Hard to keep track of all these games at different times!

    See Galway are losing again.

    Would there be pressure on Alan Murphy up there or was this shortened season more or less wrote off?

    I know he has a lot of youngsters but there's a few there like Shane Duggan that wouldn't be playing for free.

    Murphy has to go after today.

    Where was Kinsella last? I remember he was at Pats and Dundalk but that was long ago

    Definitely were going for promotion this season. I think top 3 would have been the very least expected.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if that's the end of the line for him.
    I phoned the speaking clock to hear a voice speak, it said - "At the tone you will be very much alone"

    I think Everton - the two moves to LoI were loans. He's had a lot of injury problems though.

    To be fair it was an ugly game with both sides wasting chances - it would be unfair for it to be a head chopping result IMO but I do understand the overall point as I was expecting Galway to be a real threat this year.
    Drogheda United in this together

    I remember him coming to Pats with a decent reputation. He was a disappointment as I recall, wasn’t sure where he ended up until now.

    Surprisingly decent game in the Bowl tonight, though Athlone will be annoyed to lose from a goal and a man up, and indeed to have had a player sent off (for retaliation I think?) just as we were reduced to nine.

    Big winners in it though were probably Cabo, as our suspensions will be in effect from our trip to Stradbrook on Friday.

    Big win for Cabo.
    Talk of American money coming in must make them realistic contenders.

    I was very impressed with Cabo last night. They are a very strong team and a great ex GK of ours Mick Kelly so cant see past them imo.

    Finished 2-1 in the Showgrounds, deserved win but it took an injury time free kick to do it.

    That Waterford defending for the free kick was really dreadful.

    Huge result for Sligo. Harps are buried at the minute.

    There's only one team we can look at to catch and that's Cork and it's a big longshot.
