I dunno Vinny. That summer training was......a month ago now? You lose acclimatisation as fast as you gain it. 3 to 4 days. I feel this is deja vu in preparation for Larnaca last year. Perhaps someone could trawl through my posts? [emoji16]I think I posted similar last year

Presumably this fixture will happen whether we play Tues in Cyprus or Weds in Slovakia

Nothing specifically new, just cleaning up the European fixtures. I have removed the "at risk" flag from the Cobh (confirmed) and Finn Harps(likely now) games. Monday's EL QR4 draw will potentially impact the timing of a (hopeful) FAI Cup R2 tie and the UCD(A) league game on 30 Aug, that's if we look like getting past Bratislava.

If we progress in both competitions, the EA Sports Cup SF becomes a major issue as it needs to be settled by 2/3 Sept latest, so that arrangements can be made for the final.

To be rearranged.

Things will start to become a bit clearer now, and there is only one more game which could be postponed, that's Rovers at home on 13 Sep. That will depend on the result against Bohs this Monday.

Beat Bohs on Monday and Rovers home Sep 13 has to be rearranged. Let's rearrange it for early October and win the league against them!

El Paso wrote: Fri Aug 16, 2019 1:35 pm Cup match v Derry is next Friday 23rd. UCD game is refixed for Monday 26th (huge crowd at that I’d say!) and we’re away to UCD following Friday.

Great chance to get 9 more points on the board in a short space of time and go 10 clear with 8 to play.
A win against Bohs on Monday will most likely see either the Cork(H) or Sligo(A) game refixed for Mon 2 Sep, as the Rovers(H) game on Sep 13 gets added to the list.

As you predicted, it's Sligo Rovers away now on Monday 2 September

Maciej Tarnogrodzki stepped down from the Bray job a few days after the 8-1 thrashing at Oriel Park. Presumably lighting won't strike twice for him at UCD.

On the other hand, Bray did go 3 matches unbeaten when he first took over from Alan Mathews, who had gone on a dismal run of 5 straight defeats

Maciej Tarnogrodzki will take charge of UCD for the rest of the season following Collie O'Neill's departure from The Students on Monday. His first league game will be against Dundalk on Monday at Oriel Park - a ground where he lost 8-1 while caretaker boss of Bray in May 2015.

71 points now from 29 games for Dundalk - one more than after the same number of matches last season.

Not since 2015, when they had 72 points at this stage, have they had a higher total during Vinny Perth's tenure at the club

That's the run in now. Just two home games in the league in September. Biggest game of the season - either to clinch the title or rub someone's nose in it - is a Monday night.

I'm more than a little concerned that, if we beat Waterford next Monday, there will be no energy left for a Cup semi-final.(worse still, beat them after a replay)
