    Direct bus? Are you sure it wasn't a spaceship?

    On a completely unrelated topic, a friend of mine is interested in going to the match on Friday. As a neutral, will he go unnoticed if he isn’t doesn’t cheer for Rovers anytime they are doing well in the match?
    Isn’t the game on RTE, not VM ?

    Tough game for Pats in Tolka. We’ve squeezed past Shels each time so far this season, but maybe our luck is about to run out.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    The real question is where do you park.

    My mistake so, could have sworn it was RTE I saw it advertised on.

    Having to watch on telly, so not feeling the derby buzz at all really. Football has to be watched live. How the **** do barstoolers do it? Haven’t been to rovers away for a while now, this getting popular lark has its drawbacks

    Would the Tolka game be as big a rivalry as the Shamrocks v Bohs one and in a more atmospheric ground? Hope both Dublin derby games sellout.
    Anyway back to the first division which is the real national/countrywide league. The two games I have seen Longford this year they have played well, both bank holiday Monday fixtures, them at home against Galway and away to Bray. I feel fairly confident that Galway will get the job done on Saturday, they finished really strong against Cobh the other night. A win would not only bring the title and promotion closer but be a great boast for cup game v Dundalk.

    Probably not as big now, but Pats /$h€l$.was a huge game back in the late 9O’s when they were the top 2 in Dublin (yes kids, Shels used to be quite successful, hard as that is to believe.) I remember some epic games at Tolka, particularly the Cup QF in 98 that went to 2 replays, Pats losing on a shoot out (might have been Trevor Croly that missed the vital kick, but I’m open to correction.) Shels are still the club I love to hate the most, ever since those Ollie days. Great games.

    Not as big a rivalry surely. The riverside has a good atmosphere but so does Tallaght to be fair. Just coz it’s a nice modern ground doesn’t mean it’s lacking atmosphere.

    If I remember correctly when St Pats had the points deducted in 01-02 season wasnt there a huge Pats Shels rivalry back then as I think Ollie Byrne had something to do with the points deduction?
    Gary Cronin is he the right man to manage Longford Town?

    An interesting aside - since signing from Treaty, Martin Coughlan has started five games, and been booked each time.

    Was quite somethig to see a side and fans celebrate winning the league when (points deduction) meant they hadnt at that point anyway. The Dundalk FC POTY trophy is pretty versatile and has been presented for all sorrts but especially in lieu of the league trophy twice, 94-95 to Dundalk, and 01-02 to St Pats.
    Think all that era messing with points deductions, Ollie's games behin the scenes, culminated in and summed up by the Best Worst title winning player interview ever given by Stuey Byrne.

    I thought stuey byrnes worst interview was a different year when they pipped Derry?
    Shels had the habit of winning things with zero class.
    If Duff ever wins a trophy he'll carry on the torch I'd imagine.
