    Went to the Galway v Shelbourne friendly game at the weekend. Saturday night 6pm KO and a good few at it, 500 plus my estimate. I think Galway should switch home games rather than have them on Friday as been the case for long while. It would suit the younger demographic(school going age) and visiting fans who may like to make an overnight trip. Nice style of play from Shelbourne which should attract some new followers to Tolka this year. Great to have the LoI back.

    Just on the above, do any Galway fans on here know if the friendly against Pats this Friday night will be open to the public as the Shels one was last weekend?

    This more like it!

    We've been schooled by Drogheda early season never mind preseason in the past and did ok. I'd rather a good chastening result than coast through preseason and get found out when the league kicks off. Could loosen the purse strings if there is a glaring weakness in the squad. Little bit concerned on the right fullback position for one. Pace at the back could still be an issue. I'd say a few of the lads that have come in from abroad are thinking hard about the intensity of LoI, where there is quality mixed in with the frantic tempo. Very different from the lower levels in England or U23 leagues. I'd be first in line to be panicky but not just yet!!

    Of course pre season friendlies mean nothing, as Iím sure the Dundalk lads will waste no time in reminding us.
    Malone Cup and President Trophy are big pieces of silverware to start any season so some preseason games definitely mean something!

    Seem to be good crowds at various friendlies around the country at the moment, which is encouraging for the new season.

    Estimated 1,300 at the Brandywell last night. It was Institutes home game and they don't normally open the Southend stand but before ko the Mark Farren stand was full so they hastily had to open the Southend stand. Probably the biggest attendance at this annual fixture in my memory.

    Galway 2 - 0 Pat's yesterday.
    0-0 at half time. Rowe and Adayemo in second half. Pat's played 22 players, having started with a strong selection.

    Shels 5-2 UCD today. Was 2-2 at half-time. No idea what sort of team we put out (or if there were changes, etc). Shels had a trialist in their starting XI so they were experimenting a bit too.

    I think both UCD and Shels play again later so guessing two different sets of teams with mixtures in both teams of starting XI, fringe players and the odd trialists

    3 friendly wins out of 3 for Duff promising start despite scepticism around over the strength of our squad
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians

    Squad depth is something that’s tested/displayed over the course of a 36 game season when there’s injuries/suspensions etc, not 3 pre-season friendlies

    Never nice to lose games. The fact is that friendlies are just training games to work on shape, fitness & experiment with players in various roles. The competitive edge of a proper match can’t be replicated. The score card for new managers such as Clancy , Duff & your man in charge of Dundalk won’t be in until the end of the first series of games.
