    Interesting game in Dalymount. I thought we were awful against Drogheda but ground out the win anyway , so progress there. If we are to have any chance of Europe then it’s teams like Bohs that we have to finish ahead of. I wouldn’t expect a huge scoreline in the game. I’ll go for a conservative 1-1.

    Big game Friday for both Rovers and Dundalk,
    With Dundalks next game against Bohs Rovers have a chance to both establish a 3 point gap to DFC with a game in hand as well as pile pressure on the DFC Management team heading into the bohs match......1 point after 4 games a real possibility for DFC.
    On the other hand a DFC win and all pressure is off and the world is a better place, Rovers would have to win in Derry to draw level.

    Bohs Pats big game for both , a win for Pats and Bohs are really strugling plus Pats might start to believe (4 points from the top two last year would be a great return)
    Drogs v Harps is a real 6 pointer this early in the season, i dont expect Harps to struggle but going 9 from 9 would be a hell of a statement. (29 points would have kept you up in the last two completed 10 team leagues 2018 and 2019) although after 18 games last year Shels had 19 points.
    20 points would have been enough to avoid auto relegation in 2018 and 2019.

    Shels and Galway will be anxious to get wins under their belts after the nil nil last week.

    I'm glad someone else is as anxious for LoI fix as I am, there were times the last couple of years that matchday threads didnt appear until the day of games. When we are allowed back to games, assuming no restrictions, in due course we could be looking at some very good attendances at games!!

    Fixtures could work out in Dundalk's favour in trying to be positive. 4-6 points over the next 2 games will go a long way to lifting things after the 1st 2 games of the season. I think we have tended to put in a performance even when form was poor over the years, in bigger games, and this will be no different. A comprehensive loss on Friday and drop points to Bohs and I think management change is inevitable - when would be the question. Pats can put down a marker but Im still thinking that beating Bohs isnt just as good a result as in recent seasons. Harps can certainly go 9pts from 9 but if things settle down as Ollie would think beating Drogheda will be important - nose bleed territory for Ollie!

    Setting up this thread is the highlight of my day LOL other than my 4.9k walk.
    I almost set it up last night after the Treaty game.
    Thought id save it for today to give me something to look forward too.

    I do think you are right though, as soon as people are allowed back in we will see a big bump in attendances, particularly if indoor activities are still restricted..

    Good few of our fans seemed to think it was more of the same from us vs Drogheda as we saw for much of last season but I really disagree. First half granted was along those lines as we created next to nothing for all of our control, but second half was a different beast with Bermo coming on and SOD making proactive adjustments that saw us not only score twice but get more players breaking the lines and subsequently making enough chances to mean it should have been more than just two. Nothing too special but grounds for encouragement for sure.

    Combine that with Bohs' poor start to the season and I'm already looking forward to the impending disappointment this weekend.

    I'm more nervous about the games against Drogheda and Waterford than I was about Bohs and Dundalk. They were two free hits. Important our lads don't become complacent after two good victories.

    I hope Harps win the League just to hear Ollies interview afterwards! Plus, it would really highlight their stadium situation.

    Good man

    I think we are showing signs of progress from last year, we probably wouldn’t have won that Drogheda game. Bohs have had a poor start, so their reaction will be interesting. To beat them could do wonders for the teams confidence I feel. I’ve probably jinxed it now and we’ll lose.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Watching Bohs v Longford on Saturday last and there were fans in the "Jodi Stand", I'd guess well over 50+, all well apart but, I've watched games so far with nobody in the stands or anywhere else in the ground
    Whats the story there, I thought all fans were not allowed to attend?
    Anyone!

    its a hard one to call , looking on the TV bohs seem to always have a lot of people in the stand but the tv view can be missleading, Bohs have only 2 sides to the ground to put people in and effectivly 1 for bhd matches as no one wants to stand in the des kelly when they can sit in the jodi
