The comment he made was when a number of times Dundalk moved the ball into great positions just outside the box after a number of passes but instead of making the through ball pass, the ball was passed backwards away from the danger area. McGrath was the biggest offender of. I'm not taking about moving the ball quickly by hoofing it up and neither was Roy Carroll. The patient build up is understandable but then there is this ridiculousness of not threading a ball through when it's on and passing it back to the centre circle.

a lot of people automatically think when someone says “move the ball quickly” they mean back to front fast, long or hoofing. I mean passing it quickly or running with it quickly, rather than dwelling on it so that your only option becomes the pass back to the centre half, which is what we’re prone to do.

I don't think we are in disagreement here are we?

No, but it read like you thought I was saying we should hoof it rather than be patient and keep possession

Just saw the goals . That’s some finish by Laverty in fairness

He's quite the player. Scored goals in Europe, has been capped for NI and only 20. Not that we'd be in for him, or he would even sign for us but he could be a decent championship player. I thought cooper was fairly handy for them also. Hery still got lovely touches, gives the ball away the same as many league of Ireland players but would be a great compliment to shields in the middle for us. He's one that got away from us I think.

Wonder would the club try to get Lavery in to offer competition for Hoban and Kelly. A very different player to both.....

He is certainly the type of pacey mobile striker that would give us very different options.

He signed a one-year deal with Linfield last summer and has been ripping it up for them so far in both the league and european matches, in addition to being called into the Northern Ireland full squad. At 20 years old he has a bright future and most probably that will be back across the chanel next season

Thoughts on last night....

Great stadium, friendly welcome from Linfield in general, smoothly bused in and out, home earlier than a game in Tallaght.

On the game, felt we dominated the ball and would be fairly confident on beating them Monday night in fortress Oriel - McGrath, Mountney & Dummigan poor, thought Boyle had a bit of a 'mare.

Overall enjoyed the game, although our delivery was poor for most of the night, the experience let down by the small minority of our fans intent on trying stir up sectarian hated. Absolute idiots.

Roll on Monday.
