    Also the absolute neck of Daire Doyle complaining about 6 minutes added on when his side have been brazenly wasting time since the first half!! The current application of the rules rewards and incentivises time-wasting, and 6 minutes was more than justified after watching Steacy standing over kick outs for about 20 minutes of the second half.

    By and large , the season will be decided for Bohs in August. PAOK on Thursday , v Sligo next Sunday and Rovers in the cup at the end of the month. So either challenging for third or nervously holding on to 4th

    Yeah but he can't really diminish Rovers winning the title if he doesn't downplay their closest rivals.

    On first glance it looked like the Dundalk keeper ran off his line and barged straight through the Pats player. I’ll look again , in that scenario the ref didn’t have much choice.

    It's genuinely not fit for a game of five a side. Artificial pitches shouldn't be allowed at elite level in a country with some of the best grass growing conditions in the world. There also should be consequences for failing to maintain grass pitches to an appropriate standard.

    There is a picture starting to form on how the league will play out, its not crystal clear just yet with the games in hand here and there. I think Rovers are looking good for another title, the quality and depth of their squad will see them through I reckon. As for ourselves becoming I'm very optimistic that we wont fade away and will be able to secure a European place for next season. The additions to the squad in the window has helped and with injuries and suspension clearing up we were able to have strong bench yesterday. The race for third is a little unclear at the moment with Sligo's poor run of form. Its safe to assume that buoyed by their European run that Bohs will push for third. I still reckon the top four will wrap as they currently stand and from our point of view that would do very nicely indeed and would represent a massive step forward.

    The way the Cup is playing out this year, it could be that rare thing that 4th won’t get you Europe. The Top 3 could be out after this round depending on how results go.

    There is nothing sub-concious about it!! The anything is possible was a directly reply to sbgawa similar comment with tongue firmly stuck in cheek in relation to Dundalk. But fill yer boots lads cant just slate a post without backing up why -where's the fun in that?

    I actually was being genuine when i said DFC first 11 are a good team capable of making up 4 points on Bohs.
    They have under performed hugely this season as the core of last years team is still there.

    Keeper ??? Slogget, McMillan, Boyle, McEleney, Duffy, Dumigan, Leahy, Cleary, Patching. Kelly, Stanton , Jurkkovskis

    There are others i haven't listed but thre are enough players of a good standard there well capable of 4th place in our league IMO.
    They have showed it at times but never consistently.
    Even i dont believe they are going to challenge Rovers for the title so its just an honest opinion.
    Attitude (blaming the off the field stuff) is all that can be wrong with that team to be in 7th place

    It was clumsy from him, but he definitely punched the ball before falling into the Pats player I felt. What can be agreed is that pitch is rubbish. Really bad. There was a beautiful through pass early in the game with Dundalk player through on goal, and the pitch stopped it dead in its tracks.

    Think he got a minor touch on the ball rather than a punch - but he also fouled the Pats player so not surprised the ref gave the penalty - similar to when an outfield player gets a minimal ‘touch’ on the ball but also takes out the attacker

    Agree with this. Should be no LOI clubs with artificial pitches they are a disgrace.

    Now quite a few in the north as well Coleraine have recently got one and Cliftonville have long had one, an appalling pitch that is too arguably worse than Oriel, opposition teams should refuse to play on them.

    Nah I meant myself when commenting on Dundalk winning every game and winning the league being tongue in cheek.

    Bircham undoubtedly doing an incredible job so far. Richard Forrest rightfully deserves a lot of credit too, we’ve significantly strengthened the squad during this window which has hugely helped also. Pinning Bircham down to a new contract gives me optimism we won’t be scraping the barrel for players a week before the season starts next year. The tide seems to be changing for the better under the new regime.
