He was suspended for Sligo, so last night must be 6. 8 misses the final so should be ok, unless he gets sent off against Athlone
Anybody who is on 4 would be a concern obviously.

I think 5’s get a reprieve for the Cup Final but 8’s don’t. That was the mess up last year - they assumed both did, so assumed Shields was fine.

Could we get away with not playing Shields against Athlone? I know it's a cup semi final and we should be going full strength but we also have enough in the squad to get past Athlone.

I expect it'll be pretty much a second string against Athlone, in between the Euro games. And I fear it'll be a second string in the cup final if we get there, seeing as it's less than 72 hours after a trip to Norway, and 4 days before the Arsenal game

I most certainly wouldn't agree with a 2nd string in the cup final.. Its a chance of silverware. We have already made 4m from this europa run. I'd take a pasting from arsenal of it meant we beat rovers in the cup final.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

I agree 100% with you (especially when you consider the Arsenal game will be a dead rubber).... I dunno if the powers that be will though

If anything has been proved correct this year, it is our second string are nowhere near good enough. I wouldn't be making too many changes for Athlone, as for cup final if we make it, has to be best xi.
