    How many will be sent off here? Refs are shocking, listening to screams and moaning from the benches.

    Just tuned in and the first thing I heard was Rovers are probing and teasing St Pat's and I did not sign up for this FILTH

    If I want that kind of thing there's plenty of cheaper sites than WatchLOI. You might even get a replay too.

    The game is nothing special but the ref is not helping it at all....

    Interesting concept by RTE allowing a home fan to commentate on the game with them. Surprised they're letting him swear that much though

    I wonder did he get talking to his mate at half time.

    The amount of free kicks killing the game. Thought we started very well. Took Rovers 20 mins to get out of their half. They’ve probably been the better side since then. Worryingly we still don’t look like making chances.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Ronan Coughlan has spent more time on his back than on his feet in this game!

    Two nailed on reds to Smith (well I thought it was Smith but he isnt listed as being booked on RTE) for the tackle on Hoare and Desmond later on was just shocking.....

    Its interesting to hear the players and benches so clearly.

    At this stage, it seems any sort of fixture this year or any future year between Pats and Rovers will end 0-0

    It was great for a promoted side to get that 1st win on the board day 1, it can become monkey on the back otherwise. Fortuitous winner but fortune favours the brave and the chance wasnt give up. Waterford were better than expected, Sheedy has them well organised so maybe an astute managerial appointment after all though early doors.

    Almost two games into the season and top scorer in the league is own goals.

    Early days yet of course, but could do without a repeat of last season where most of the league could only manage a goal a game. If there's one thing wise than behind-closed-doors games, is behind-closed-doors games with no goals

    Not quite. Thought we’d nicked it there. 1-1 will do me though.

    Rovers parking "two double deckers" at home until they conceded, feeble scenes.

    Good results though, not much in it but despite the disappointment of conceding so swiftly after scoring we were out on our arses since the 75/80ish minute mark. Encouraging start though, the squad is small but strong enough to be expecting a real push for 4th*.





    *if we can figure out how to score goals

    Gonna take time for Rovers to settle without Byrne and McEneff and I think creativity is going to be an issue. Uncharacteristically poor performance from Pico. I don't think that starting line up was the best available 11.

    Young lad in goal for Pat's acquitted himself very well and looks really solid. They look like they are going to struggle for goals again.

    Disappointing for Pats (and others) not to have taken that win with that late goal. I was about to say that Rovers still seemed to miss that clinical striker and Greene pops up with a great header not long after coming on. Minimum sort of performance expected of an O'Donnell coached side in their organisation and effort, the creativity will happen I think. Good to see Forrester looking a bit more like his old self, in general they look fitter. Jaros looks to be a very good loan signing. Barrett is solid for the most part but he will give St Pas fans those heart attack moments almost per game like the first half air kick per game. I think it was typical early season fare, lacking that sharpness and intricate plays not working but will come good. It was an intriguing game more than entertaining.

    Rovers didn't deserve to win purely on the team selection. Gaffney shouldn't be anywhere need the first 11, for a start. Watts and Kavanagh should be starting. Burke is a luxury player but complicates the midfield. I was more impressed with Danny than last week and its the 1st week of the season.
    It'll probably be a 7 point gap this season instead of 11.😉

    I was thinking that myself after watching both games tonight, teams are so well organised these days that its very hard to break down any half decent defense so there will more low scoring games. Its all the rage to play it out from the back all the time, pass it about a defense for a bit before getting forward - the odd ariel bombardment might do no harm n mixing up and keeping defenders guessing.

    Pats look better than last season, more solid anyway, the new keeper looks a good pick up for them as well.

    Rovers look like a team who've lost 2 of the best midfielders in the league and it'll take time too learn how to play without them, McCann looks a tidy operator though.....

    Hopefully they keep that ref away from televised games in future, wanted to be the centre of attention for a lot of it......
