    A step in the right direction good to see the draw back on the box.

    I havent been to away games at Harps or Longford so cant be specific on the respective pitches. Excuse or not, or whether the pitch in Oriel is poor, It doesnt mean that grass pitches if poor should be exempt from criticism. It doesnt endear a manager to risk sounding like they are making excuse and anyway a slick, well kept and watered pitch would make damn all difference when so badly out of form, our defence would be sliced apart against a half decent side so maybe VP should be careful on what he wishes for.

    Where did you see this , have Dundalk made a statement. What happens if it turns out to be a large outbreak in the squad.

    I was at both those games and the pitches were fine. Perth is full of excuses but fails to look at how in two seasons running players have stopped playing for him.

    Boom, that made me laugh.

    I know the league was covered if you have enough under 19s you play but i wonder is the FAI cup covered under the same participation agreement. (if Dundalk were without 9 or 10 players )
    I suppose it is but you never know.

    Edit: according to the Sun (i know) if you have 14 fit players you play, if you dont you concede the match....sounds to black and white for the FAI

    No idea about Longford, was down there in August and it was fine, but Finn Park pitch, this season, has been in probably the best condition it's ever been.

    Vinnie was 100% right about the pitch being terrible FFS.
    The pitch had covid. how much worse as a pitch could it be ? It passed it on to the Dundalk players, Ollie has a secret cure that he was feeding the Harps lads at half time.
    Bill is threatening a nuclear strike on Finn park, Ollie told him no one would notice 'and sure we will be knocking it down anyway for the new place'

    Don't be surprised if the FAI rip-up their own rulebook to postpone the game to accommodate Dundalk's last chance for European football

    Bill is using a Magic 8 Ball instead of PCR tests.

    What date are the semi-final matches scheduled for ? Presumably they'll both be on RTE this year ?

    One things for sure. If Gerry Malone is saying it, it's wrong. 3 out, Boyle, Cleary and Stanton. No centre half's and no experienced outfield players on the bench. Will be a long night

    That's the best bit of skill I've ever seen from Hoban. Game on.
