I'm not sure to whom you are directing that accusation, as you didn't quote any post or reference anyone. For my part I simply commented that I thought there was little in it, based on the information that you posted. I still think that.

If peoples expectations are not meet, disappointment often follows. I don't think Stephen Kenny has any case to answer here except for managing a team that were defeated by a lower half first division team. That's definitely disappointing

Of course it's a minor thing in the grand scheme of things. But *we* are the stars of club football in this country now. I think we should own that.

I'd imagine Connolly will start with the same effect he has had signed. Square root of f all

Starting XI will probably be along usual lines assuming all the defenders are fit with left full being the question mark. The bench looks a bit light given what happened on Monday.

Sava
Massey or Jarvis
Poynton
Mountney
Chvedukas
Murray
Kelly.

Yet Kenny persists with him. I don't know why. Very disappointing signing.

It didn't work Monday so why should it work friday? Pick our strongest 11 and get job done early.

Think that's the subs bench he listed.

I reckon chevdukas should start. He needs a run of games if on so we can all see what he brings to the table.

I agree with you, but there's the rotation debate again. Has he the sharpness and match fitness to play? If he doesn't play in matches like this how will he get that sharpness and match fitness?

There are others like Murray, Mountney and Poynton who are in the same position as Chvedukas - who all played in last weeks defeat!
