    This strange season continues
    Would be a huge result for Harps to get something out of the Pats match and continue their great start.

    Rovers Bohs is probably a bigger match for Bohs than Rovers , lose and they are 10 points behind, genuinely dont know how it will go , if matches were played over 87 minutes we would be in 6th place combine that with a swap of keepers with Dundalk and we would be in 8th or 9th. Still feel we have a lot more in us but it would be nice to see a convincing win.

    Waterford , Longford has an early six pointer feel to it.
    Dundalk you would feel simply have to win against Drogs, if they lose and 1 of the top 3 win they would be 14 points behind with same number of games played a lot of games to go but that is a big gap. A run of 10 or so wins in a row would change everything and they have done it before but its a big gap especially in what looks to be a league where there are several teams that can beat each other.

    First division starting to shake out, big game in Galway, chance for UCD to really show credentials for a title run.
    Bray on Sunday really need a win they would have been expecting to challenge.

    Huge buzz of excitement about tonight's matches clearly
    Have to say im a bit worried about tonight hopefully we wont be depending on a last minute goal to dig something out of the game.

    5.45 is an awful time for a game on a Friday.

    Let's hope the officials aren't the story of the game.

    At least they are making some attempt to stagger the kick of times, although that may be that they dont want any clash with the RTE live game.

    Why aren’t they staggering the Saturday games. There should be at least two slots if not three. It makes no sense sticking the three games on the same time.

    Would people really watch three games in a row? I'd have thought the extra viewership wouldn't be worth the extra hassle to clubs of having games kicking off at different times each weekend.

    What kind of numbers do we think you getting watching other clubs games?

    I know myself I donít really bother with any that arenít Derry. I watched last 15 mins of Dundalk-Patís on Saturday night past as I had a bet on Patís but thatís it.

    How many people actually log on to WatchLOI and watch games not involving their own club? Games live on RTE would be different obviously.

    Whatever about three games, there is absolutely no excuse not to at least have a double header!

    Is there though?

    I'd be thinking along the lines of DCWA's post - does anyone here watch games other than their own? Maybe one for a poll?

    I did last season but not this year unless its on RTE,empty grounds with 2 random teams you dont follow is not a great watch,quality of the football just isnt there.........

    I'm still out of work so I watch the 5:45 game on WatchLOI and GUFC on LOITV afterwards and I watch one of the Saturday games.
    I've found it hard to resist watching the Dundalk train wreck and the irony of giving a nod to the GNR with their away gear!

    I would generally watch at least one other game at the weekend.
    This weekend i would watch Harps v Pats (Rovers obviously) and Dundalk v Drogs Saturday.

    Yeah! The reason the games are being streamed is because the country is virtually locked down, and there is little or nothing to do at the moment. I've watched at least one other game each weekend.

    I don't really go out of my way to log in and watch games on a day where Pat's aren't playing, but would and have previously left Watch LOI on on the rare times a game has followed one of ours and had a look. If it happened more regularly I'd definitely be watching more games through that alone.

    Expecting a tight one against Harps tonight. First goal will be the story of this one I'd say, as good as we've been we've not found ourselves behind in a game yet and I wouldn't fancy it happening in Finn Park.

    I would be the same, tomorrow Iíll watch the Dundalk game obviously, but if there was a game either side of it Iíd watch some if not all of them. It makes no sense to me having the games on at the same time. Even if the extra audience is minimal what is the reason for not playing the games at different times? Surely there is no extra cost.

    Those lads behin the Donegal News hoarding in Finn Park look totally like stewards and nothing at all like fans Pats not looking like falling off the pace at the top of the table, pressure all on Rovers later!

    I like Harps until we have to play them, making this an extremely tough game. Cracking goal from King though, great moment of quality that popped out of the blue.
