    I remember in 2014 season our preseason wasnt the best as we lost every preseason friendly and we still got promoted as first division champions at the end of the season. But with us in the top flight now if we keep losing the rest of our friendlies then I would get more worried!

    Keane isn't getting paid, does not work for Rovers, isn't training/exercising and probably is over 5km from home, but its ok because its Robbie Keane?

    Whats his elite status?

    He is a coach for a loi team and part of the bubble, every bit as estential as any of the other coaches, paid or unpaid.
    Are there any other unpaid coaches throughout the league ?? 100%

    I doubt there are unpaid coaches earning €6k a week! Just in case, I'd be uncomfortable with conflicts of interest potentially involved here if it were any club not just Shamrock Rovers, at the same time if it were Dundalk that were benefitting I'd probably not care what anyone else thought - such is the double standards in being football fans. It is the FAI with the likes of Rea Walshe still involved so when it comes to conflicts of interest I dont think this ranks too highly...

    On that showing Drogheda wont be cannon fodder especially at home. Dundalk were patchy and some of the concerns expressed before wont havent been put to bed in terms of some goalkeeping. Its all preseason stuff but not as assured stuff by Dundalk today. The narrow pitch at HITG Park wouldnt have suited Dundalk's system but then anyone could narrow a pitch and is something that needs to be contended with. Whether Dundalk are not as strong as hoped or Drogheda are stronger than expected - its another have to wait and see moment. Never expected it easy regardless. Presidents Cup next then, it wont define a season but will be a more accurate game to assess how well some of Dundalks new players will fare.

    That sounds half respectable. What sort of team did Rovers have out?

    Better than 7-0 anyway

    No team sheet issued but we played shels in the morning so i think it was basically full squad plus some academy split fairly evenly for the two matches.
