    It's a totally mental season, a side with 40 points could end up in a playoff. Even still, it's not totally inconceivable that a Dundalk or Drogheda could end up stealing the fourth placed spot, or could end up in a playoff. Great entertainment right until the end of the season. Going to be a fascinating few weeks.

    4th is still just about doable, St Pats have to continue to ablate their cup hoodoo thanks! We've spurned 2 possible routes in to Europe already so third times a charm starting with a win v Pats. Hopefully the busted a gut on Friday.

    Drogheda 1-0 Derry. So once again, the lower team wins, and once again Sligo keep hold of third spot.

    Fully expecting Waterford to beat Bohs tomorrow. Mental season.

    Big result at the bottom though as Drogs had been slipping dangerously close to the playoffs

    A 0-0 game if I have ever seen one but fair play Drogs took their set piece chance and we didn’t have enough quality to properly threaten to overturn it.

    Europe wide open, not that it matters to us in the billionaire club whi will win league at a canter next year anyway.

    As you all know there are no good teams in it and we have mopped up the best players…Kelly, Patching, welcome home…

    Jesus, it's started again.
    DCWA might be tongue in cheek, but I've a pain in my hole with clubs that come into money forgetting that they were all passing the begging bowl around the league in recent memory. Dundalk the same.
    I know, it's the LOI so all clubs have their chequered history in thus regard, but a touch of humility might not go amiss.

    Reassessment. If rumours are to be believed there is a greater risk of relegation than kicking on and trying to get to 4th.

    Relegation by losing the playoff (which I don't see the PD side doing) or.. ?

    Well the exit of all the medical staff over the weekend is a start. Perth confirming that there are no talks with him or players for next season, rumour of Perth leaving before the end of the season so back to Magilton managing a team that has been messed about plenty already with players on the move. None of those players are going to risk injury, whatever pride instilled by Perth, if he leaves then players are fully in self preservation mode and that doesnt bode well for scrapping against relegation or against a 1st division side that can smell a big scalp. Of course a new owner could be announced and the ship is steadied in the interim phase.

    thats a fair point about players in self preservation mode.
    A bad injury now and you could be unemployed until next July.
    Its a tough game.
    Letting all the medical staff go wouldnt impress me either if i was a player

    Should be a cracker of a Louth derby in Drogheda in a couple weeks time. 5 games left and remains to be seen whether it will be a relegation scrap or a fight for Europe. Very interesting end to season in store for lots of clubs.

    If all the medical staff are gone ; surely a case for the players union to step in and rightly advise the club/league that the players won’t play until a full medical team put in place

    Im sure they will have a doctor and a physio for games, but the FT/PT people have left. Im not sure whether staff have been let go or walked tbh.

    Most clubs don't have full time medical teams , generally it's outsourced.
    Not a reason to not play but not a happy circumstance if u are used to having full time people around u

    It was a nice strike by Billy King to put the Saints ahead.
