    Ollie will give the sack if he get too enthusiastic!

    Could be one of those years, where everyone is waiting for them to run out of steam and they just donít. Donít honestly expect them to win it, though no one will want to visit Ballybofey. If they were to make Europe (at the risk of getting ahead of ourselves they surely wouldnít be able to play in Finn Park. The Brandywell or the Showgrounds I guess ?)
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    it is a unique skill to roar on a team while patronising them and their fans.

    What's so patronising? Plenty of Rovers fans have a big affinity for Harps for lots of reasons.
    for instance
    a) Harps supported us when we needed it in the past
    b) Harps welcome Rovers fans to Ballybofey and treat us like humans.

    Harps would get a big genuine support if they played in Tallaght.

    You know well we would somehow draw Institute.

    And lose.

    Well, they are the best team in the city at the moment!
    As Irishmen we dilute our sense of nation by depending on the English to bring us our balls

    Yeah, I recognise the codependency. It would be an interesting Psychological study. A companion piece would be the more recent Bohs /Hipster urban legend

    SDCC looking for a new tenant? They obviously only want the champions!

    Yeah, Shels/Bohs would be an interesting one too! A companion piece could be on if 'you cant sell your home twice move the neighbours in (and sell their home)'.

    Every body needs good neighbours...with a little understanding etc.

    The plastic bucket codependency might be another coming down the Great Northern Railway track soon enough?

    You could well be right - how far down the track has always been the question!

    Flashscore reports 5 shots on target, 1 off.

    2 nil at half time, Rovers always looked comfortable but Derry had one chance at nil nil and hit the post.
    Good to see O Neil , Murphy and Gaffney and Watts all starting .
    Hard to see Derry coming back now but they did come back from 2 nil down in Tallaght the season before last

    Derry have plenty of the ball in the closing minutes but not really making Rovers worry to much. It looks like its a long year ahead for DC.
