    There was an MSC cup game or two over the years and regular friendlies.
    But no real competitive games. Which is mad because the league Cup is seeded regionally and we never got them and played Wexford almost every year for half a decade (unless I'm forgetting a game).

    I love the way everyone is talkin about Rovers, Dundalk & Bohs for the league, I still think one or two of our 'Regional' teams will have a big say in this league year

    I think that pretty much everyone has tipped Sligo Rovers to push on from fourth place last season. Unrealistic to expect Longford Drogs and Harps to be top four , given the limited back up to key players in their panels. They will take points from everyone though, particularly from Bohs judging from last Saturday.
    Derry should be up there given their resources, but wont be . Waterford look to be a bit of a mess but could surpise people when Sheedy has time to work with them.

    Between SDCC, North Louth and Sligo Regions for the title.

    Bit early for a concession

    I wouldn't rule Pats out either , a lot will depend on them keeping their first 11 fit

    Was focussing on the comment about the challenge from clubs in the Regions, not the city clubs.

    This seems similar to lots of people saying Pat's were dark horses last season and will look just as ridiculous as that did by the end of the season imo. I really don't understand what people are looking at. They've a pretty thin squad that looks nailed on to badly, badly struggle for goals again. I'd be stunned if Pat's finished above 5th.

    The old cliche of a team looking decent on paper is probably why people thought Pats could have had a better 2020 season. Wouldnt take a whole lot to be better this year, being more consistent is a start, but yup hard to see where a regular goal threat will be, a big contribution is needed from midfield unless they find a prolific hat stand somewhere. They'll be hard to beat and will draw a lot of games.

    Agree 100%, scoring goals has been our issue for the last few years and it doesn't look like we've solved that problem, after the starting 11 and maybe 2 subs it's basically a squad of kids.
    Here on a technicality.

    Tough to know what will happen this weekend - Will say a lot about whether expectations were realistic. Some of the fancied teams need to topic a win beside their draw/loss last week. Otherwise nerves could have an effect. If Bohs, Dundalk, Pats, Sligo don't pick up 3 points then the rot could start.
    I'd say Derry are mighty relieved at the postponement.

    Dundalk 1-1 Harps the score after an hour in the early start.

    First Division also kicking off tonight; I think that's as clear as mud as it usually is at the start of the season.

    UCD are doing online programmes this season (as are many clubs I'm sure); tonight's is available now. Features Peter Lorimer, Robbie Benson, Kevin Moran, Aymen Ben Mohamed, Brian Lenihan and lots of other stuff.

    He heard everyone saying that at least this wouldn't be another on his CV and said "challenge accepted".
