There's still no sign of Brian Murphy.
    A local journalist and Pat Dolan in the Star wrote articles complaining about what is going on this season there.
    Takes a lot to out **** show us this season but Waterford are managing it. And very little talk about it in the media. Whereas if someone farts in Oriel there are multiple articles and podcasts about it.

    You'll get some coverage this week but probably only because you played us and Rovers.

    Things look bleak at Waterford, only naming two outfield subs and then not using them with a trip to Tallaght on Monday seems crazy.

    Its completely weird, like there is an agenda to run down the club or management making a point to owners. Either way most of that same 11 if not all will be playing 2 full games in 3 days with 2 outfield subs not to be used. Unless there is a battle of wits in te dressing room and Sheedy is doing the whole we will manage without the dissenters even if we have to play short on numbers. Stretched by an improving Dundalk and then a visit to the champions is poor timing for WFC, perfect timing to show some fight though and take points of Rovers... any time is good for taking points off rovers lol

    Fair point actually. Probably helps that the Dundalk issues are more understandable - the manager was the AC Milan summer camp manager, which is a great soundbyte - and ye went from champions to relegation form almost immediately. But still. We had two subs two years ago against Harps (and won ) and that was because we'd had players leave and had a big injury list. I don't think anyone's left Waterford (Murphy aside, kind of). Is it just injuries? Or was the squad too small to start with?

    But Sheedy opted not to call up U19s as he did last weekend. At minimum its a chance to get some of those players some minutes at senior level so still strange behaviour.

    Yeah, that's strange. I think there's an element of making a point in it when you do that (and I think it was the same at UCD to an extent, for whatever reason) There's no reason not to do it like, even if you've no intention of bringing them on.

    Kinda crazy making the 11 play the whole game and not making subs.
    Hopefully they will be knackered for Monday in Tallaght
    If he doesnt think the 19s will get protected on Friday he can hardly play them on Monday.
    Although those Dundalk lads are a bit rough in fairness compared to the Rovers lads

    If it ever snows in Donegal, Harps could make a fortune turning that finn pk pitch into a ski moguls location, as the pitch is all humps and bumps. The lack of recent rain didn't help the game for either team, and Rovers just had to battle their way to 3 points. Glad to see Joey back, but the midfield places remain up for grabs, in my view.

    Olly Horgan judging by his antics in Bishopsgate should have being sent off in that game. Love the man but by god he can be melodramatic!

    Correct, the €3.2m or whatever the final figure was earned from group stages in 2020, will not be paid until much later this year.

    On the weekend games, def a good chance for some clubs to make a lot of progress, if we Longford that will 3 wins on the trot, then home to Sligo, so things can change quickly.

    Still say we have left it too late for the league, but more hopeful now of euro qualification (which should have been min requirement) and top 3 should be well achievable, maybe even second place who knows.

    when the money is paid is irrelevant, it will be in the 2020 accounts,

    There are a lot of injuries and Kyle Ferguson is suspended so the Waterford squad is really down to the minimum. There has been so much controversy caused by them so far that some fans think Sheedy and Newell want to be sacked and paid off so they can head home.

    That's one of craziest things I've read about LOI anyway. We want favourable referring decisions or we won't name full benches?

    As a City fan, with no love for Dundalk, I have found the media obsession with Dundalk weird as well. Like the manager situation. Shane Keegan was clearly the license holder to sign the team sheets but wasn't really the manager. The media were obsessed with it.

    It's not the first time it has happened (City have done it) and it won't be the last with the daft pro license regulations.

    But no noise about Alan Matthews at St Pats? Why aren't the media jumping up and down about that? Is it because they are all mates with Stevie O'Donnell?

  20. Thanks From:

    Because Pats were honest about it I guess.
