    Banners in the stands if we dont get 3 points against Shelbourne I'm only joking right now but the crowd were turning just before we got our third against Cork.. At the end of the day if we are winless by the time we play Pats that will be the game where the **** hits the fan.
    No excuses left with Pico back, time for a performance....this team normally delivers when needed so i'm hopefull Friday.

    Dundalk could be top by Friday night which would confound all predictions pre season, big game for Tim Clancy against Bohs.
    Waterford changed their manager early last season and that could be repeated if they drop more points in Athlone.

    Big weekend for a lot of teams, if Derry beat Dundalk and we lose to Shels i'm calling it early...the league is over for us.

    We could be 13 points behind derry and I would still expect Rovers to win the league. The season is long, and if derry have a prolonged period in Europe this season as I think they will it will ultimately have an effect on their league chances.

    We will be equally if not more affected
    i was hoping we would get a run in Europe ourselves again but if losing in QR1 meant we had a better chance of retaining the league id take it?

    Some big games this weekend already in the premier. Big game for Dundalk to see if they are actually any good or not.

    Would love to see Dundalk, Bohs, and Shels win. I think that would make the most compelling watch.

    Eamon Deacy Park hardly the ideal venue to visit when looking to climb the table, but there has been a gradual improvement in performances with each outing, so it should be a better display than in Bray, if nothing else.

    Yeah I'd bite your arm off for that now.
    Europe is good for finances but doing 4inaRow is paramount, in my book anyway.

    Galway will be a difficult opponent. Kerry have been competitive in the opening three games. Galway however are capable of causing damage. It has been mentioned all winter that there will be some tough results to take. Billy might have to park the team bus but the policy so far is to attack. It should be a good test and a reality check.

    Pitch inspections in UCD, Derry, Richmond and Tolka. The Derry one is strange, what is there to inspect on an all weather pitch? It’s either covered in snow or it’s not, and if it is it would surely just need to be shovelled off no?

    Looks to be ok. Very little snow left on footpaths. I'm guessing the pitch is clear too.

    The golf courses are open, so the pitch will be grand. It'll be hitting freezing around KO, so only possible issue could be icy stands.

    Does "pitch inspection" cover access routes to the ground and so on? So if it's very icy around the area, that could still lead to a postponement.

    I would guess that's it, yes. Inspection is done and match is on.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Pats v Bohs is confirmed as being on now too.

    Not sure but if that’s the case why call it a pitch inspection. Surely ‘the area around the Brandywell will undergo a safety assessment’ would suit better.
