    Double game Weekend so big opportunity with 2 wins for anyone to make a big stride forward or with two losses to begin a crises.
    Two wins for Rovers and we are off and running anything less and its banners in the stands time judging by the reaction to last weeks loss

    Every game seems vital at this stage crowds are great as well.....truly the League of Ireland.....Its not that bad you know.

    I think Farmer Brown's in Clonskeagh is the nearest off campus - a 15 minute walk per Google maps. Ashton's is just beyond it too.

    But Clubhouse Bar is fine.

    I'd rather not have Shamrock Rovers on the Monday! It sensible to go all out to get 3 points at Shels, they too will see it as a chance to register a win so a battle of attrition in line I feel. That makes its extra tough for Monday though motivating players for games against the champions shouldnt be a problem but will there be enough gas in the tank to press for 90+mins and also get on the front foot at times also.

    Sure we all have two games. No better time to play us than after our derby. It's worked out well for you in the past....

    Fair point, though a few days prep on tactics wouldnt have gone amiss with a newly assembled team (have to get the excuses in early) and specifically for playing against arguably the strongest side.

    It's very arguable at the minute! Great time to be playing us. I'm told there have been strops! The camp is in disarray. And even if we beat bohs we will be banjaxed. It's clearly your game to lose.

    Dont forget about the pitch! In the unlikely event of Rovers dropping more than 4 points points they could be prophetic words oth, at face value Derry should be picking up all 6.

    You are not Roddy Collins by any chance lol. He was on the Press Box podcast recently and made his opinions on the standard or how competitive it is/was pretty clear. Actually a good listen in general tbf! The Bradser Out banners must be near completion by now

    Didn't hear that one. He's entertaining alright. Utter spoofer but box office. He's been on a few lately. Must be sniffing around for a job. Said he had one lined up in England I heard.

    No banners in this house though Nesta. I'm a believer. But who can compete with billions? If Derry don't win it from here it'll be a complete capitulation.

    Hard to know how good anyone really is at this stage but at least it's shaping up to be a bit of a battle.

    Market's Field passed an inspection at 10am, but will continue to be monitored throughout the day. A bit more rain expected today. If another game gets called off there difficult questions will have to be asked.
