In the build up to the big league match with Cork City on Friday, it may have escaped notice that the quarter-finals of this years must-have cup competition is in Tallaght on Monday night.

Forsake the World Cup and all other distractions - see you in Tallaght on Monday!

If Stephen Kenny intends to play an unchanged starting eleven against St Pats, our starting line-up could look something like this (assuming that John Mountney is fit enought start)


----------------------Sava-----------------
Poynton-----Cleary----Folan-----Jarvis
--------Mountney------Chvedukas------
Connolly--------Murray----------Byrne
------------------Tagbajumi-------------

Don't think it will be that strong. Wouldn't expect Connolly, Murray or Cleary to be risked. Cavalcante & Gavin Smith maybe with youths making up the bench.
Another chance for Tagbajumi to prove beyond doubt that he gives zero fcuks about playing for us.

You could be right, but the priority must be fitness. Getting 45+ minutes into Connolly or Murray may be important and Cleary could probably benefit from the full 90 minutes. That will be the only consideration SK will have in this selection

The strength of the team or the ability to beat a fringe / youthful Rovers team, for once, is unimportant

Yeah anyone on the fringes of the first 11 who needs match fitness should be playing. I'd pick that team and put it up to Murray and Chvedukas to play their way back into the first 11.

Now that it's July is Byrne going? Everton released him
There's only one word for that - magic darts...

I suppose if SK wanted to rest Connolly or Murray, it would not weaken the team too much to throw in that McEleney fella for the craic

I would expect the 2 new signings to be introduced off the bench. I thought that Pablo was on of our most impressive players in the last round vis Bohs. Interesting that S K hasn't played Marco since then as he proved he could not even score against the Bohs 2nd team
