Fully agree on O'Donnell, plus that was well into the second period of AET too, great run and an unstoppable looping header, we were home and dry at that point.

A brilliant feeling.

Just watched the Soccer Republic highlights again, the commentator is so underwhelmed when we score goals 3 and 4, the bias is palpable.

Also had a close look at the scuffle. 2 players arguing over a disputed throw in is a regular occurence at any game, but Bradley was the sole reason it turned into a free for all. The minute it kicked off he moved to one side and wandered around on the fringes looking totally innocent. He then stood on the pitch looking away from the melee as if to intercept any Dundalk players heading over. If he was hoping we would pick up red cards, it backfired big time. Let's hope the FAI would have a good look at the video.

Agree on Bradley, but the other thing about the melee is that two of Rovers' assistants/coaches got stuck in too, including one who grabbed O'Donnell. Now if O'Donnell turns around and shoves him we have a player sent off and they have an assistant coach sent off! Don't know if it's a deliberate tactic of Rovers to get non-playing staff involved in winding up the opposition, but there's a lot of Mourinho style gamesmanship there.

Bradley isnt that bright, Id say it i is more likely that he just surrounds himself with like minded staff.

Watched it live on YouTube. Nerve shredding. I was so proud of them for that performance. How they went again after the late sucker punch I don't know. First time all year we've had a come from behind victory and no surprise it was with O'Donnell playing the whole match. If he plays the whole final we'll win.
