    Its weekends like this that we need to step up if we are going to win the league.
    1 more match after these to the break.
    No Hoare , Kenny, Towell or Farrugia , all suspended but no excuses , tired of that.
    Bohs look to have the easiest matches over the weekend but then again we've just lost to Drogs and Cork so ..........worst league in years, i still think Rovers are the best team but they need to show it..

    Surely the fact you’ve lost back to back to the teams in 8th and 9th and Derry lost to Sligo in 7th shows that the strength in depth of the league is probably the best it’s ever been.

    Apart from UCD there are no “easy” games.

    Maybe Rovers aren’t as good as previously but if you’re measuring a League based on the best team that’s not really an accurate judgement of it.

    In Division 1 we’ll hit the halfway point after Monday’s rounds of fixtures.

    The interesting thing now is that 9th placed Finn Harps are within 3 points of the final playoff spot, Athlone in 5th.

    With a home game against Kerry tonight the gap between 5th and 9th could be even tighter on Monday evening.

    I still think it’s too easy for the team that finishes 5th or even 4th to be promoted but it does show the advantage of extending the playoffs, that bar Kerry, the season is very much alive for 9 of the 10 teams.

    Ah I was a little tired and emotional putting that up last night at 1a.m . To be honest if there is one thing that surprises me this year it's that as bad as rovers have been no one has taken advantage so maybe I should have said "most average league ever with no really good team". Anyway I'm awake and full of optimisim this a.m .....3 nil Rovers tonight and SOD brings sleeping bags for the post match inquest in the dressing room

    With this being the halfway point for premier division clubs would I be right in saying that the yellow card count resets after this weekend for accumulated yellows?

    Most inconsistent league is maybe fairer. Nearly all the teams have been inconsistent, except Shels. They’re consistently hard to beat but fairly dour. Everyone else has been up and down.

    Vinny Perth was talking on OTB yesterday and mentioned how in previous years the league winners usually had about 38-40 points at this stage. That probably doesn’t bode well for our top teams going into Europe but hopefully they can get a little bit of form going before the break.

    Treaty will be hoping to get out of Waterford without a hiding and aim for Monday vs Wexford. Squad is threadbare so hard to rotate what isn't there...

    You'll be fine, no-one else is going to be able to take advantage of the slip ups.

    Cup final aside, the Derry-Shels matches tend to be tight affairs. Two best defences in the league, and a 0-0 wouldn't be a surprise.

    Kerry down to the barebones tonight, so much so that Billy has ended his vendetta against Matt Keane and has given him his first start since April 1st.

    He had a go at the experienced lads a while back and this week has gone public on the underage academy mindset in the squad which they need to evolve from so a bit of pressure being felt there would be my take, will be an interesting June window there.

    Not so much against the players, given the average age of the squad (even including the older members) is only 21, but the drop-off in the attendances reflects a general listlessness in the season, and a sense, as you say, that some freshness will need to be injected during the brief mid-season break.

    Some result for Cork tonight, makes the bottom look very tight and drags a few into it

    Rovers very good tonight but can see why Dundalk fans haven’t been happy with the team. Bar the last 10 + IT it was all to easy with ten men and should have been out of sight. Tough one Monday even more so,after playing with 8 then 10. Looked v tired at the end

    until the last 10 that really was the case. Will SO’D start coming under pressure? I know budget constraints etc.
