Dundalk v Limerick

Postby Martin Lawlor80 » Sun Jun 03, 2018 8:30 pm

Feel free to change the title of this thread if needed.

Just to kick it off, James Rogers tweeting that if Limerick go the way of so many of the Cork teams, ie fold, then Cork will gain a 2 pt advantage over us!!
Is this true??

Yes if they expunge the results - Cork only drew there. Also would bite into our GD a bit.

Bad times for Limerick and sad to see, but Bray are in an equally bad spot. Second half of the season could be a shitshow if the worst happens.

Same the other direction if Bray don't make it. You'd hope both could make it to the end of the season anyway. Something like that shouldn't decide a league.

Interesting stats from Neil O'Riordan of the Irish Sun:

17 of the 21 outfield players Dundalk have used in the league so far this season have scored; Sam Byrne 0 (2), Dean Jarvis 5 (4), Stephen O'Donnell 3 (6) & Georgie Poynton 1 (0) the exceptions.

Would be ridiculous if cork won the league by 2pts if this happened.
Terribly unfair if we won by the 2 when we just weren’t good enough to get the win over Bray in the first game of the season. Bray look solid enough now anyway till the end of the season by the looks of things

While things may change Daniel McDonnell suggesting in the Indo that Limerick likely to have a full squad available for Friday night


Limerick to meet players for crisis talks about future

Limerick FC will hold individual meetings with each member of their squad today in order to make decisions about their future.

But with the club adamant that all payments will be up to date by today, players will not be free to leave unless it is deemed a necessary cost-cutting measure.

Problems emerged before last Friday's league meeting with Bohemians with squad members not paid as scheduled.

Senior players were left with the impression that they are free to go, but they have been told by the club that there was a delay in some wages going through on time and all monies should be in their accounts this week.

Training took place yesterday, although some players didn't attend. Representatives from the PFA Ireland then met with the squad before holding discussions with Limerick officials, including owner Pat O'Sullivan.

Exodus
A reduction in expenditure and a reversion to a part-time set-up is firmly on the cards, but Limerick are prepared to resist a mass exodus as they have managed to pay the wages for May.

There is a strong likelihood that a couple of higher-earning players will be told they can go when the transfer window re-opens on July 1.

However, at this juncture, there is an expectation that a full squad will be available for Friday's trip to take on Dundalk in Oriel Park.

Players are seeking guarantees that the funds will be available to pay them for the rest of the season.

One of the fears expressed within the group is the shortage of home fixtures remaining this term. The top heavy nature of the season means they have just seven Markets Field matches in the remaining five months.

They will subsequently be relying on an FAI Cup run for additional gate income.

Season is past the half way point , results will not be expunged. All remaining fixture would be awarded as a 3-0.

With Chris Sheilds on a one match suspension for 5 yellows - presumably this applies for the Limerick league game and not for the LSC match against Bohs - it will be interesting to see who plays the No6 position.

With no disrespect intended to Limerick, it is unlikely to be the most defensively demanding game, but it would be useful to see if SK tries Chvedukas in this position

I think yellow card suspensions may cover the next competitive game regardless of the competition.

Team news

Dundalk will be without the services of Stephen O’Donnell once more as he recovers from a broken leg while John Mountney is still out with a medial knee injury. Chris Shields also misses out due to a suspension after accumulating five yellow cards. Sean Gannon is back in contention having played 50 minutes in Tuesday evening’s Leinster Senior Cup win.

Jarvis, Chvedukas, Adorjan, Poynton will all be looking to start alongside Benson. Hoare maybe a dark horse?

If he is.fit enough I'd opt for Chvedukas, with Jarvis next in line

My understanding of the offer was that you had to buy the two tickets together before 5pm on the day of the Bray match.

You can get a link to it in the Bray match thread to check it further

I'd be looking to start chevdukas (funnily enough autocorrect spells Christmas on my phone) and adorjan. With Europe around the corner, their fitness and nuance could be key so match sharpness is imperative. I have a feeling Kenny won't play them together though.
