They are terrible this season we couldn't have wished for an easier game to get a bit of confidence back
Dont jinx it ....
Don't worry I didn't. Great performance first half yet again and didn't have to get out of second gear in the second half. Waterford will go down

Unreal. McMillans looked like a hamstring. Hard to know n what Dummigan's was. Leaves us very light in two positions

Good performance, nice tempo, and decent creativity. Not perfect, but miles better than under the Bluffer.

Played well. Waterford are poor but equally hit the woodwork twice. Zahibo looks a baller when we get him up to full-speed. But equally there's a naughty tackle in him. Something very rotten in Waterford. Only 3 subs on the bench and they were a gk and 2 cbs. We are improving week on week. If only we had the sense to play a few more preseason friendlies!!
Bit left field here, but what are people's thoughts on keeping Magilton on as manager if only til seasons end. We have certainly improved considerably under him. OK its only been derry, drogheda and Waterford. 2 sides below us and the other we would definitely expect to be below us come seasons end. But still we have to have built some confidence in this run under Jim. I feel if we install a new manager our 3rd of the season, that we could initially dip a little while he comes in, checks the players out and instills his training and match tactics on the team, all of which could take a number of weeks to implement. So maybe just for continuity sakes it may be an idea to keep Jim in the hotseat for the remainder of the season?

Get Canning. At one stage he Said it was a delicious pass, and then said derry will fly up the table and challenge..

No, they have beaten and drawn with teams they are expected to beat. Fair enough they weren't going great under Filippo, but equally could have beaten Drogheda and Waterford also. The performances have been ok,. In all 3 games under Magilton they have been opened up, but not really been punished.

There is still a lot of football to be played this season including in Europe which is vital for Peak 6. Magilton would put himself under pressure if results went downhil. He's a Director of Football who's job is to identify a manager that can be the right fit for the club

Way too much positivity for Orielweb, so I'm going to bring us back to form.

3 goals scored and a clean sheet, should be delighted. But I actually thought we were very casual at times and gave up way too many opportunities to a really poor team. At one stage I don't think we could have complained if it was 3-3.

Zahibo could have been sent off in both his games now, he needs to stamp that out.
Anyway we got through it and hopefully the players have gelled a bit more.

More injuries are worrying as well

He also at one stage called Dummigan a “ corner back” !!

Dummigan’s was the result of a flying boot that Twomey didn’t look twice at.

All depends on who and what level Magilton is after and who he appoints. Maybe he will find someone who is better than himself on the manangement side of things or someone who compliments him. If we had a good manager and JM in the background signing the players that the manager identified and board approved??? Pretty clear after last season that we certainly need both positions filled with the right people, we seem to have one.
In a way I feel Peak6 might at this stage agree that this season is one of transition, lower expectations, allow Jim get the right man and then rebuild to come back stronger. If anything, last night proved that Sonni has to come back in when he is fit, serious lapses in central defense last night, became more evident in the second half, has been a problem all season. Wouldnt be suprised to see another centre half signed come the end of the season and either Boyle or Cleary moving on. If they want to stay they will seriously need to up their game, maybe they need a man beside them alá Garts to organise them. Personally, if Garts was about 3 years younger I feel would have a serious duo with Sonni and him but he isnt and we have to see how he comes back from his injury.

We should have been further out of sight in the first half and could have had another couple of penalties. Once we got the early goal at the start of the second half we didn't really have to get out of second gear. Even when Dummigan went off we looked fairly comfortable.

We looked more like ourselves than we have in a long, long time. There was pace, good retention of the ball, and composure. It wasn't perfect, but compared to the rubbish under Giavagnoli it was a massive return to playing proper football.

Agree Mc Garnagle , we need to be tighten up at the back , , & Zahibo has to be careful , with sliding in.
