Dundalk V Cork | Mon 25 Sept | 7:20pm | Turners Cross

Postby El Paso » Fri Sep 22, 2017 11:34 pm

*sorry Ez, but wanted to post this!

An hour ago I was convinced we were going to go down to a full house in Turners Cross and stuff them.

But just saw baldy Rob Rogers is the ref.

Lost three out of four in the League with him this season, including in Cork, with Kilduff's red
Lost one out of one the season before - in Cork with Shields' red.

I said it on the other thread tonight but Cork's players and management are frazzled. Very lucky not to have someone sent off. A rake of yellows. Don't think Rogers is strong enough to stop them kicking us off the park in a dour match on Monday night.

Both Kilduff and Shields deserved their reds.

Maybe, but I don't think those two fouls were the worst fouls in either game.

I will say that if we beat them on Monday I'd fully expect them to lose to Bohs next weekend too. In that scenario they'd be 5 points ahead with three to play.

Does anyone know what the story is with tickets for us Monday? Still available? Are there many going down. Live in Kerry, would love to see us beat them and have them capitulate even more.

We're still not going to win the league but it would be nice not to lose it on Monday. There are too many weak teams in the league for Cork not to fall over the line. Look at how poor Derry are now for example.

Highly unlikely we will win the league. But beat them down there and make them sweat like fook, for another week would be nice. I think we will win. I also think they will lose one more before winning the league.

Caulfield proving his limited coaching ability compared to Kenny and that he solely relied on Maguire to pull them out of so many games. They are falling over the line. It doesn't bode well for champions league next year.

Can't believe they let ogbene go and signed a centre half of the calibre of Robbie Williams. He looks twice as unfit as Kenny Browne. Not a patch on garts, vemulund it Hoare. Town look in great shape for next season if we can tie players down.

On Derry, what has happened to them at all? I know McBride situation was horrendous but they have really capitulated. They need to get back into the brandywell quick.

"We just have to get back to basics on Monday night. It's going to be an incredibly difficult game. But these guys are able to do it if they put their minds to it."

It's pretty obvious what Caulfield means by "back to basics" - kick em all over the pitch, keep it tight at the back, play for a draw, and hit long balls as much as possible.

A draw would suit Cork well, leaving them needing just 2 further points.

A win would be a great psychological boost for us, looking towards the FAI Cup and for next season, while it would be a serious deflator for Cork team and supporters.

Its about momentum for us. The FAI cup is massive. Win it and the only team being talked about in November will be SKs double winners.

Back 5 picks itself. Shields Benson and McEleney in the middle flanked by Duffy and Connolly. Davie Mc up front.

Sounds fair enough but all the pressure is on Cork & the way we have been playing over the last month or so it's hard to see anything other than a Dundalk victory. If I'm right, then even more pressure piles on Cork & what a run in of games awaits.

For Cork, if they were to blow it, it would have to go down as the biggest concession of points in a title race ever known, maybe I'm getting too far ahead of myself but you never know.

C'MON THE TOWN:
