    Expectations For Rest Of The Season

    Doing much better than most people though I suppose it is fair to say. Have still dropped some points needlessly of course, but after one series of games completed it's fair to call the side play-off contenders, right? Will they be able to keep it up does anyone think? Or is it a case of them just coming as a surprise to the other sides, who won't be so easily caught next time?

    Starting to concede more as the series wore on. Id say maybe we'll finish where we are now or one below that as it'll be hard to keep Cork behind us, they are starting to pick up a bit themselves.

    Great first series, exceeded expectations definitely and well done to them all. Be tough to kick on though towards play offs, more realistic to just remain competitive at the level and remain solvent too maybe ?

    Treaty have done very well so far, and maybe are getting a bit fitter as the games go on. McSweeney is an absolute boss at this level.

    Super result against Bray, and the first time we've had more than a 1-goal margin. We are struggling to score goals with only Red up front by himself, and he's clearly unfit.

    The first division is absolute muck, it's atrocious. UCD can play a bit of football, that's about it. With that in mind, and with Cork losing at Cobh and Galway getting battered at Shels, there's no reason we can't target the playoffs.

    Still well on target for the playoffs. Shels will run away with the league, but we are as good as anybody else in the division.

    UCD not up to much tonight, Galway not up to much even though they beat us last time, Bray not up to much either. It's a pretty poor division, so I have no idea how we compare to Harps, Waterford, who are above a Longford side going straight down.
