    Weekend Fixtures 23-25 October

    After Europe, back to the league.

    Derry v Shelbourne Tonight, Shels might sneak into Fifth Spot, do they want it? Derry could do with another home win.

    Saturday Sligo v Cork, Both teams still got an outside chance of what they want to achieve.

    Finn Harps v Bohs, Ideally a win for Harps so they can look at finishing Cork, Bohs will get Second unless something strange happens, do they grind out another result.

    Sunday Waterford v Dundalk, Battle for Europe here.

    Predictions, which will probably all be wrong:
    Derry
    Sligo
    Bohs
    Dundalk

    All change in the first division. Drogs leapfrog Bray and lead by a point after injury time Galway winner. Exciting final day!

    Cork miss a penalty and Sligo take the lead two minutes later. Iíll take that if it stays like it.

    Doesnít look good for Cork now. Harps need to take points from the 3 games in hand to guarantee a play off.

    Financial issues aside. Who was the last League Champion to get relegated within a couple of seasons of winning the league? Amazing that City could be relegated.

    Probably Drogheda are the only comparable example, though they did have big financial problems, even if they weren't Shelegated.

    Champions in 2007, relegation play-off in 2009 (but that was financial), recovered to league runners-up in 2012, but relegated in 2015

    Dundalk were champions in 94/95 and won a play-off two seasons later

    Obviously relegation hasn't been around all that long

    If you didnt know who was in second place and who was second bottom youd struggle watching to figure it out. Harps with 6 corners so far

    Incredible, just incredible.

    Challenging for the title for years, Champions in 2017, FAI cup winners on two occasions, big European money, successful transfers to English clubs, big crowds.....

    Now practically relegated.

    There is no comparable fall that I can think of.

    Well this is easily the most enjoyable non Rovers LOI game I've seen this season.
    2:0 now😂😅.
    All its missing is the morons in the stand calling for Longs head, blind to the fact they're comfortably in 2nd place.

    Harps continue to be our friends in the northwest.
