    Great to see Watts , Joey and Towell come in, hopefully this is the start of a better run
    Agree we offered nothing second half but at one nil up if it wasn't for a great Mannus save and a terrible decision not to give a stonewall peno and we would have been out of sight. For all Rovers possession in the first half it took two wonder strikes from defenders to get back in the game. Can't rely on that each week.

    Don't know where we go from here.

    Something needs to be done with the standard of referees! Next time we play Rovers we could get a ridiculous call in our favour

    Rovers were the better team and deserved to win

    Looked a peno but would it have made a difference.. Nah. It just would have meant the game finished 3:2 to Rovers. 😁.

    Have been told that in pats boez game pats scored a perfectly good goal but ball judged to have not crossed the line.

    LOI referees eh! 😋

    Dundalk have been a mess this year but at 1 nil up the "live table" had you 8 points behind with 17 games to go which would have been pretty incredible given the mess as you said.
    Rovers play (admittedly with an injury crises) over the last 6 or 7 matches has opened the league up.
    The turnaround means its out to 14 points and that looks to big a hill to climb.

    Ball has to be fully over the line.Watched it a few timesl ooked maybe half over?
    Lino was at the corner flag with the best view.
    Mind you, the same lino missed Lyons getting punched in the face by the Pat's number 12

    The peno decision was absolutely awful, which is completely in keeping with the truly horrific standard of refereeing in the league.

    The far superior side won the game in the end.

    He was gutted and then totally confused. Ifs and buts, a 2 nil lead and there was a chance of an upset. Mannus showed how important he is in keeping Rovers in the game until they could reset at half time. Rovers may have an injury crisis, we have 2 fit centre halfs at the club. Sloggett going off injured gave Rovers a leg up in the game as he was doing his job well up to then. We dont have much off the bench really but arguably the clubs fault and we faded badly as Rovers improved. It was a good game, obviously not the result we wanted but again looking like a team that is progressing regardless of the shortage of quality outside a 1st 11 or so. Badly needed for Rovers too prior to Slovan next.

    Harps in serious danger of getting sucked into the relegation battle. We were awful again last night. Doesn't help being down so many key players, but when you're not doing the basics right, and have no plan B, you have nobody to blame but yourself.

    Longford would be very unlucky not to get something from this. They have been the much the better team in the second half.

    I was stewarding at our game no way was there 500. Minimum 350 more Sligo than Longford. We were very good second half but we are lacking somebody of the calibre of Greg Bolger. We are too quiet of a team. I didnt have the best view of Sligos peno but pal in Section O said it was 100% a peno.

    I think Harps will be grand. Waterford was so poor on Friday night. Created barely any chances of note, and nothing worthy of making it into the five minute highlight video. Longford were unlucky not to get anything on Saturday, and they could well catch Waterford in the next few weeks.
    I wouldn't even say we were brilliant, but we just dominated whilst not really having to try. Delighted with keeping a clean sheet, only the third time this season.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Brendy Eire from seeing us play against Waterford a few wks back we dont have vocal leaders on the pitch. We are way too quiet a side. We were bossed off the pitch by Waterford. Theres something lacking in our panel this season.

    If you look at that game in Longford (a massive win for us), O'Reilly was man of the match and Molloy scored the winner from Mascoll's delivery. We've lost all three of those players in the last week. There are new players coming in, but the quality is questionable. We were very poor in Derry and will be stuck for players for a couple of weeks so Finn Harps in Ballybofey this week will be difficult. If we get at least a draw there and make some good signings (Eddie Nolan being one), then we can target catching Harps. If we don't, then we'll be doing well to stay above Longford.
