    Smash n grab by Galway. 7 teams could still get promoted. Crazy stuff.

    Well that makes it interesting - wins for Galway and Drogheda mean Drogs go top by a point, and Galway join Cobh in being two points off Cabo in the play-offs.

    So for the final week on Tuesday it's -

    Athlone v Bray - you'd have to imagine Bray will win here
    Cabo v Drogheda - probably a Drogheda win based on recent form, which would mean the title for Drogs. Cabo's goal difference means they really need to win to be comfortable of a play-off spot, having started the season with seven straight wins.
    Cobh v Shamrock Rovers II - again, Cobh favourites for this one
    Galway v UCD - we've by and large ****ed on the weak teams and struggled against the more grown-up teams. Our goal difference means we should be guaranteed a play-off spot even if Galway and Cobh match our points tally, but we lost timidly enough in the Bowl and I wouldn't be hopeful here
    Wexford v Longford - no reason to doubt a Longford win here.

    So based on that, I reckon it's Drogheda as champions, and then Bray v Galway and Longford v UCD in the play-offs for the ultimate right to get kicked about the place by Harps

    Nervy Drogs win but great result at the same time. Unbelievable to see the late Galway winner. Thank you Galway for brining cheer to Drogland and also paying for my takeaway tonight with my PP winnings.

    Nervous Tuesday here we come.

    Just realised - I donít think Cabbo stream ! Ah man if Iím right then I hope they let the Drogs crew stream the match as UCD did earlier in the season.

    The short seasons have given me an appreciation for the Apertura and Clausura. The combination of the playoff structure and the 18 game season has made for a ridiculously competitive and interesting league where everyone bar the bottom three have been jostling and competing for something all season. Maybe it should be added to the list of options when the inevitable 2-3 year discussions take place to find the one format to rule them all this time.

    Wexford have won their appeal apparently, Cabo drop out of the play off, Galway away to Bray instead and the #Greatestleagueintheworld delivers again!

    Yeah Wexford were always confident of winning the appeal. Delighted for Galway. Think that all the momentum is with them I really fancy them to win the playoffs altogether. They are in serious form.
