It's not all doom and gloom, the player signing video for Han is excellent and will get the club a bit of exposure. Using the street art of Dundalk sayings was a nice way of connecting both Han and the Club to the town. Kudos to all involved.

I thought that video was brilliant, and with the amount of likes and retweets it's getting on Twitter, in a small way it might help Han feel at home.

I met him outside the Marshes with what I assume his dad. He was wearing his Dundalk 77 jacket so no mistaking it. I'd imagine he was out taking in the sights of Dundalk which wouldn't have taken long to be fair.

I thought it was cringeworthy to be honest. They need to concentrate on getting fundamentals right on the pitch and less time producing this shite.

He was very positive Friday night, thought he was excellent when he came on along with O'Kane.

Yawn....not whinging. No interest in this shite.
Only interested in football and results.

Simples. Now go correct your typo.

On the production side, it is very well produced. Just not something that interests me.

Interested enough to comment on it...

I thought it was great, the media side of the club is one of the few positives at the moment. More of the same please

We've already seen the biggest weakness. When our wing backs are attacking, teams are targeting us with long balls in to the corner when they win back possession. Finn Harps second goal was the classic example of this.

For that goal all we had were the 2 CBS back.

Shamrock Rovers walked the league last season playing 3-5-2 (with a 32 year old Centre Midfielder playing Right Wing Back)

Lads putting it into context....our coaching team have to realise that they have to play to the strenghts of the players available and not the 1990s Serie A,B.C tactic.

Exactly. As I have said the players aren't broken. The system is. If it isn't working after 15 league games it isn't gonna work. But it looks like they are enforcing it and not for changing it, considering they are casting aside the successful players we had, who they deem unable to play it, and aiming to sign players they think will fit the system. It's a shit show up there these days.
