    New season signings sucees is 50/50 in my view - Hoare & Danny have been brilliant, but both Gannon and particularly McCann look finished as footballers at the top LOI level.
    Agree re McCann offers nothing as for Gannon heís still an excellent full back but simply not suited to playing in a 3-5-3 formation .

    Bloody FAI allowing Rovers to field 12 players now.

    Yeah I know what you mean about Gannon, but his lackadaisical attitude at dundalk last year, and now this season - I just think his competitive mojo has gone - I'd love to be provided wrong tho, as he seems a decent genuine bloke.
    Talk of stokes having a trial with Rovers now-jesus wept.

    Gannon has been excellent in patches for us but not consistant.
    I wouldn't be giving up on him yet tbf.
    Stokes might have put one of the 3 or 4 chances that Gaffney missed last night away but he is a loose cannon to say the least.

    Very controversial game last night in bishopsgate. We are in serious serious trouble and cant see any way out. Dean Byrne & Rob Manley were extremely poor last night. We started brightly but were slack for Waterfords first goal, Aaran McNally was superb for our goal but then in second half we fell asleep and allowed Waterford to score unchallengend.

    After that we never created a chance really. Waterford are a very streetwise side under Mark Bircham and knew how to play the ref. We lack that attribute badly. Ref didnt help matters last night. On numerous occasions Brian Murphy was timewasting with his kickouts. I never saw so much of our supportbase scathing about our lack of football.

    Not really Nah Nah Nah Nah if we were playing to bigger crowds than the first division if there was no COVID then yeah cos the bigger clubs would have a great away support to Bishopsgate. But I find it hard to get into loi football without fans being there for majority of season.

    Drogheda being outplayed by Sham Rvs at Tallaght. Drogs really missing their star player James Brown. Still, it took a penalty-which-was-never-a-penalty to divide the teams. 1-0.

    Three games that has been hugely effected by horrendous decisions it seems. The officiating in this league is past the point of being hilariously bad.

    Same stuff from Rovers again - huge amount of possession ,missed lots of chances, gave away a stupid peno ; donít think Drogs had even one other chance- and for what itís worth Deegan has to be the dirtiest player in the whole league - a Ďnastyí type and never nice to see a professional try and deliberately hurt another professional .

    Anyway big hope is that Towell can make the difference by injecting much needed pace into our game that is lacking at present - so half way stage and still despite ourselves equal on points at top ; so in with a real chance of retaining title as I canít see other teams improving much but Rovers have huge room to improve

    My first game back in tallaght since that great night against dundalk in March 2020, and the difference between that Rovers team and this is like night and day. Horribly unbalanced, slow, ponderous rubbish. Greener playing left wingback, Burke slowing every move down to walking pace, Gannon shouldn't be anywhere need that team, and we don't have a single credible striker to call on.
    No subs from Bradley tonight so clearly Watts was not fit- why have him on the bench?
    Thankfully there isn't even a remotely decent team in the league this year so I guess if Rovers go on to win the worst standard of league in living memory I'll take it at this stage. A shedload of changes needed for next season tho.

    Good night for league of Ireland officiating it seems! Harps/Longford was bad, ref was worse, their goal was a joke, the penalty we got which we missed looked harsh and it seems we are intent on playing for the relegation play-off AGAIN!
