    The Premier Division is not lacking for excitement this season.
    Every match prety much every week has something on it.
    Harps have a chance to bounce back from losing in Waterford with a win against Sligo who desperately need a result themselves.
    Drogs v Derry vital for Europe for Derry and also for Drogs who don't know whether to look up or down.
    Bohs Waterford Europe and relegation at stake and Pats Dundalk also vital for Dundalk who again are probably looking both ways.

    If Bray can beat Galway they will leapfrog Treaty unless Treaty win at UCD and thus avoid Galway in the first round of the playoffs.
    Thats as exciting as i can make the flirt division. Roll on the playoffs, drama guaranteed.

    Almost forgot Rovers ...a win in Longford (hopefully not in the 95th minute) and it tees up hopefully winning the league in Tallaght Friday week against Harps. After last seasons behind closed doors presentation it will be nice to win it and have a crowd there.....unless Harps spoil the party.

    I'll definitely enjoy the run in and will try to get to all the matches.
    Unusual to be able to relax at a match.
    The race for Europe will go down to the wire and ironically the team i think will finish third (Derry) probably don't need the money as much as say a Sligo or a Bohs. Dundalk's coefficient means missing out on Europe is like throwing away a fairly predictable 750k at least but at the risk of jinxing you i think their name is on the cup.

    Any Drogheda men recommend somewhere about 20 of us could get in to watch Utd-Liverpool after the game on Sunday?

    Aware obviously of extended hospitality restrictions now.

    He was suspended last week as well so it was a 4 game ban in total. I assume it's for the handbags in Sligo after the game.
    Here on a technicality.

    Did you expect someone else apart from our commentator?

    He certainly is a bit of Bovril in LoI circles.

    Tonight's match programme is here for you while I think of it.

    He does next to no commentary, just regales us with tales of yore. It's the other guy, Peter Branigan, who makes an effort to describe what is actually happening on the pitch.

    We somehow grab a point after playing 85 minutes with 10 men and going 2 down in the second half,personally I thought the ref was right to sent Sadiki off,brain dead stuff from him,Johnny Kenny also missed a penalty in the first half and needless to say a pretty embarrassing result for Sligo….
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    The last throes of a dying team.
    Pity we didn't give Buckley the bullet earlier but too late now for anyone to turn it around.
    I would find this pretty amusing if it was happening at another club but it's so pathetic now I can barely watch it anymore.

    Wow, had been keeping an eye on updates of the Harps game until Sligo scored their first goal and didn’t bother until full time, crazy lead to be throwing away with 5 mins to play against 10 men. The result prompted me to check Sligo's form since the European games at the start of July.

    Played 14, Won 2, Drew 2, Lost 10

    Obviously 3 of those losses are in europe/cup but it really doesn’t make for good reading from a Sligo point of view and doesn’t say a whole lot about the sides below them that they still sit in third the whole time.

    Harps are unreal, you just canít kill them off lol very frustrating as a Drog - will the teams around us plz go on a big losing streak. This play off spot battle is surreal.
    Drogheda United in this together

    We have a siege like mentality when playing in Ballybofey. Last ten minutes were incredible. All Sligo had to do was keep the ball in the Harps half the last couple of minutes. I donít know what Buckley was thinking with his subs and decision making but it played into Harps hands. 5 games to go 3 of which are at home. Iíd be disappointed to end up in a playoff with how weíve performed this season.
