    Drogheda v UCD August 1st 17::00

    Ucd must be targeting this as a chance to get above Harps but Drogs sre a decent team nearer to getting in amongst Shels/bohs/sligo then the bottom.

    Drogs are safe but are more than capable of beating one or two of the four ahead of them. UCD have been playing well and have been stubborn opposition to some of the higher placed teams. It'll be a tight one tonight.

    Wonder how the legs will be given the weather and we had a game Friday?
    UCD, Harps, Shels our next three games - all very winnable.

    Drogheda have only the cup to worry about now really,they’re not going to drop any lower and unlikely to finish much higher,could see UCD getting a result….
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Feeling really confident the students will be in the play offs, in a normal year would be adrift on the current poijnts tally, but Harps are a gift that keep giving. Tonight is defo one where we will be targeting points.

    Probably our two worst performances of the season - 7-1 in Derry aside - were in both Drogheda games. While we absolutely can be as bad against them again, I'd be hopeful of picking up a point.

    Not exactly high ambition to be hopeful of a point in Drogheda, but here we are

    Since we started to feel a bit safer in the table I think our football has improved and I do think we will finish the season stronger than we started it. UCD will be an interesting game to see if we have kicked on from the last time we played them (we were so laborious in that match). Looking forward to the evening kick off.
    Drogheda United in this together

    Well, you reap what you sow. This team isn't a team in any sense of the word. Fluked a win up in Sligo. Won't be long now and Myler will start on the officials. Myker out, he's destroying the very fabric of UCD and what it stands for

    Well there we are, level at the break, and Lonergan is a real handful, shame he won't be with us next season

    Why is that do you know? Pat's wanted to keep him this season but he opted to join UCD to do a specific course there, any reason why he’d be off as early as next season?

    Pats didn't try very hard to keep him at all, and I hear the whole story of a particular course at UCD is a story spun by Pats. Loads of interest, and unlikely to be studying at UCD.

    Ah ok, makes sense if he’s not studying there I suppose although I thought that was the UCD model that players had to be doing a course there no?

    I hadn’t heard anything from Clancy/Pats in interviews about Lonergan at all, it was actually Conan Byrne on commentary of a match or on twitter (can’t remember which) that I heard Pats had tried to keep him
