    RTE do manage to do things strangely, from errortel to how they have formated this table https://www.rte.ie/sport/results/soc.../16051/tables/

    If Harps can pull off a result and Dundalk follow up with a win tomorrow finish in a European spot isnt as improbable as it seemed earlier in the season.

    RTE have made the same formatting error for the First Div., https://www.rte.ie/sport/results/soc.../16061/tables/

    Wonder how that happened?

    Waterford the form team in Premier division at the moment it seems.
    Rovers boez Cup game in a few weeks has taken on even more importance for boez if things stay as they are - will they overcome those above them and around them to get another crack at Europe next year, or is a cup win needed to qualify.
    Long/Croly didn't invest in squad players and its now paying the price.
    Sligo need a win to bolster their belief after a disastrous month.

    We've shown some very positive signs of improvement in recent weeks. 3-2 wins away to Galway and Sligo in particular. The UCD game felt very frustrating but maybe in hindsight was a good point. Too late for any kind of play off push that's for sure. But good to see progress and hopefully can see a better season next year with us challenging at the right end of the table.

    Congrats on yer win last night Patrick but I think Utd lost it moreso than Cork won it, if that makes sense. We missed some awful chances and McNulty made a couple of great saves. McGlade is a class act and when Morrissey and Beattie are back ye might take the 5th play-off place. Good luck for the rest of the season

    Sligo really on a terrible run of form.
    Harps deserve to be ahead.
    8 points covering 4th to 9th,

    Cabinteely played us off the pitch last night. Kept their attackers wide and got behind us time and time again. They really pass the ball well.

    We finally got a win,and not before time,battled well,couple of hairy moments including a world class save from McGinley got us over the line,Sligo looked a shadow of the side Ive seen earlier in the season though.......
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Bircham has brought the club to back to life. We were a lost cause before he came in. Welcoming news too that he has signed a new contract until the end of 2023. Harps win tonight will keep us on our toes.

    Dont know whether to be looking over the shoulder at Waterford or to be firmly focused on those ahead that are in freefall - such is the topsy turvy world of Dundalk FC the last 18 months. Dont want a club that isnt mine running away with the league but mé féín is all that really matters! Winning tomorrow is huge - winning on Thursday is huge - how to balance things for a basket case club like Dundalk.....

    Fair play to Bricham! Chirpy chappy that was a wind up merchant at heart is doing a great job at Waterford so far. Called that one wrong as a Lee Power made them and matched them type. Meet the fans night in due course will be all the easier with yarns backed up by results.

    Dundalk have the squad to take advantage of slip ups above them and push into euro contention. Question is are their players bothered to do it week in week out now.
    Rovers should hopefully have too much for the culchie boez this afternoon but the previous 2 games against them this season have been tight affairs.

    We rode our luck at times, McGinley with an outrageous save to win the game for us being one example, but it was a real gutsy Harps performance in horrible conditions. Neither side were really able to play a whole lot of football, but it was a very enjoyable second half, all the same. It's a bit of a mad league this year. Anyone could go on a run of form and push up the table. Waterford proving that currently.

    under the circumstance I hope a wee bit of off-topic is tolerated!? Her natural nature and down to earth manner is so refreshing with so many big ego types about in sport. Wonderful achievement! Not a single mention of holy jebus.

    Why is there Crystal Palace and Watford Badges shown every time there's a replay in the Rovers - Longford game? Odd...

    Hating this game so far. We've been poor and we're fortunate to go a goal up, the pitch is awful too which isn't helping matters. Dundalk even more fortunate to equalise as Hoban seemed quite clearly offside.
