    Not unless they’ve changed since the last round ( and can’t think why they would.) We put Derry out on pens.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Cracking goal by Leo Gaxha to equalise for Kerry, after Athlone took an early lead.

    Cobh take the lead at the RSC, which, if a final result, would leave Galway one point away from mathematically securing promotion - 0-2 now!

    Fair result …. And well deserved by Rovers as we found that bit of magic when needed… with Clarke and Farrugia now ready to play 90 mins and hopefully Jack B back next week now ours to lose …. Will be interesting to see if Derry now fall away

    Don't know where to begin on the Treaty game. Should have won but could have ended 4-4.

    Roll on next year.

    Another poor result for Waterford against potential play off opponents on a miserable wet night at the RSC. Cresswell missed 2 great chances in the first half and we paid the price in 2nd half. Cobh goals were from a penalty and deflected shot.

    Not making excuses for Waterford but they've been in this awful purgatory-like position with ages - too far away from both 1st and 3rd to have anything worth playing for.

    Going to be hard for them to just turn it for 4 games in the playoffs. They're not helped by having a team of mercenaries too.

    I agree. We've known for ages we'd be 2nd so not much to play for and that's affecting fans and players.
    We had 3 local starters who came through the club's underage system and another few who came off the bench.
    Aren't most successful club football teams full of mercenaries as you call them?

    Delighted with the win at a place where we tend not to do well, you had two good chances first half but funnily enough when we went ahead I figured that we'd be ok.
    As to how the first division team will do against the Premier Division team will be very interesting.
    Momentum is everything, I'm just enjoying this season after the horror show last year.

    Cobh are a tough team to break down this season. Would be an interesting playoff final with Cork.

    The FAI are capable of anything tbh. The word on terrace was the rules changed at the QF stage.

    As good as Adam O'Reilly is off the ball and the energy he provides, his finishing is woeful. Really should’ve scored last night but his poor effort has swung 3 points in rovers direction in the title race. It reminded me of him missing 2 or 3 sitters against CSKA Sofia last year that would’ve seen Pats through to the Playoff round of the conference league

    I'm not saying that there's no local lads in the team, just feel that the vast majority of the squad are English flat track bullies who stat pad against the crap teams in the hope of getting a move back to England. I don't think they care about the collective.

    Things like the playoff last year where the whole squad turned their back on Quitirna when he missed the penalty vs UCD I feel highlight that it's a team of individuals.

    I have nothing against Waterford and wish they'd never been relegated, hopefully they get the job done this year.

    He's a very good player at this level but I still thought he was a biiiit overrated by Pats fans last season. What he offers at his best is almost unmatched in this league but not even just finishing I think he's generally quite average technically and had a tendency to cause a bit dangerous moments for us on the ball.

    A few years ago it was the case, as you say, that the Quarters and Semis went to replays. I was wondering the same myself but apparently this year there are no replays at all.
    I phoned the speaking clock to hear a voice speak, it said - "At the tone you will be very much alone"
