    Fired mine up there, seems to be ok. I guess I'll know at 7.44.55 for sure which gives me ample time if not.

    Well that's that. Nothing in the first half apart from a dreadful mistake for the UCD goal, but they were excellent in the second, stretching and tiring our defence, and especially in the final 20 minutes, when they clinically just ran us ragged and found the time and space the needed to get the second and third goals.

    Colm Whelan was superb in the second half, and we ended physically and mentally drained. We just never got going in an attacking sense,, and apart from our one chance which was just wide from Dean George, I don't think we really forced the UCD keeper into a real save all night.

    Yeah, that was surprisingly comprehensive. But Ryan doesn't punch into his own net and that shot on 70 goes in, and it's a completely different game.

    But Whelan's two goals were lovely. One more now to go joint fifth in our all-time senior goalscorers list, and he hasn't played 50 games yet. He's level with Georgie Kelly and Jason Sherlock, and one behind Gary O'Neill and Dave McMillan, so he's surely going to be at a decent Premier side soon enough

    I had a feeling that was coming.

    Whelan to Rovers I hear ? Not going to be there long enough to break any records I'd say anyway, superb player and way too good for us tonight.

    Well he's already broken one record - most league goals in a LoI season. He'd have most goals in a LoI season if the League Cup and LSC were played.

    Don't know if he'll be around next year, but you'd imagine one more year at most is what we'll get. He's way too good for the First Division. But his current trajectory has him ahead of some really decent LoI forwards. Can add Ciarán Kilduff to that list too.

    Even allowing for the three goals that was a complete borefest at the MF tonight.While Treaty were in bonus land getting to this point the performance was awful,nothing on target ,no passages of good play ,difficult to see what the actual plan was bar setting up not to lose, and fitness levels questionable..Ucd very good tactically ,dealt with all Treatys setplays comfortably and in Whelan have a real goalthreat ,could have won by more.Disappointing for the big crowd around 2 thousand maybe.

    Not yet as no goal scoring records count until the Pat Morley certificate of approval is issued!!

    I'd love to see a side-by-side of Market's Field best attendances with results. The home team seems to wilt more often than not when the numbers are there.

    Treaty down to ten should take the sting out of it. hopefully our fitness will tell too, but it's not been great.

    Yup. Thank God for that.

    I don't see the Premier side having anything to fear from the playoff.

    600-700 here. Decent for us

    Fair play to Bray, to go away to a full house and win against big spenders is an achievement!

    Valiant effort from Treaty, but just too much ground to make up. It was very very interesting at 2-0, if only for a few minutes until the red card.

    I thought the early goal left UCD jittery all game, and nearly every ball into the box caused them trouble, but they had their chances at the other end too, especially at the end as we tried to play it out from the back while also having everybody up in attack.

    Still, a very solid and impressive season for Treaty, well done Tommy Barrett.

    Fell over the line in the end, but will take that - and Bray next. Was not expecting that. That has to be a failure of a season for Caulfield? Fully pro squad and not mounting a title challenge and then not even scoring in the first round of the playoffs!

    I don't actually know.

    I don't even know if we're home or away. The schedule changed recently I think
