Didn't make the game last night but heard we were dominant from kick off. Those goals will do Benson the world of good. Another clean sheet also which will boost the defense and Rogers.

On the bray issue. Somebody in the fai will have to take some blame here. When the licences applications are submitted at the start of the year they are tested. Especially the business plan element for the coming year. Surely somebody could have spotted serious massaging of figures and numbers which would look ridiculous. Isn't wages element of that plan supposed to be based on 60% of the average income from the previous few years turnover? It was never a possible model.

Good tempo and pace about the passing. The movement of Benson and McEleney is also much better. They are now working as a team and pulling players away to open up space for the other.

Actually it's not an average. It's a Zero Based Budget built from the bottom up from an income and expenditure point of view. Any major increases/reductions need to be explained. You can't say it was never a possible model if you never saw it and don't know the criteria on which it was approved. The financial plan in the Sean Mccaffrey season was approved so it must have sound. Trouble with things is that - unlike a business - you can't let reduce your costs by letting staff/players go. You are stuck with them no matter how much your income falls.

Agree with comments so far, definitely the best performance this term. Everything about our approach & attitude is so much better from the first half of the season, it's hopefully all coming together at the right time also. This has been the best week with the Dylan Connolly signing as well. Three very well taken goals with a completely dominant play throughout. A win on Wednesday v Bohs can close the gap on Cork although they may have games in hand, we will have points on the board, you just never know !!! Finally, an other great travelling support, great to see.

The Bray statement was indeed sad to read. It was also very well put together, they are not the first club to find themselves in this position unfortunately however, it can beg the question, has nobody learned from the mistakes of others in the past ? I hope they can get out of this mess very quickly.

All sounds good to hear folks, and sounded like a very impressive performance. Hopefully we are gearing up nicely for the big match v Rosenberg on Wed week, that really has come around quickly.

Heard there was a big away support so fair play to all who travelled, I'm going to Dalymount on Wed, looking forward to that.
