Kelly on the wing. Fats and Patching both centre with Stanton behind it looks like

Unless that crazy looking 4-4-2 on the official team sheet is right!

I know they're a poor side but we've been playing some lovely stuff so far

Really hard to judge the performance as the opposition looks so poor but there is a really good balance about the team. The passing from Patching and Stanton has been fantastic.

Our most comfortable half of football since hammering Athlone last season

If we can keep the tempo up we should get another couple of goals in the 2nd half.
The goalkeeper’s jersey Abibi is wearing looks great, is it for purchase ?

It was available on the umbro website, but a lot of the gear that was available seems to be gone.

Record equalling European result for us tonight and Dave Mac becomes the highest LOI scorer in History. A fantastic achievement by him and all scored wearing the black and white.
Out of the 4 teams in Europe, we are the only ones to win and actually improve the leagues co efficient.
Unfortunately Irish Independent and RTÉ news are not leading with the above but with the news coming from Derry…

Not quite correct. It's 11 European goals for us and 1 for Pats

That's a big achievement nonetheless, the biggest win we had in Europe since 1981. Regardless of the strenght or lack of (these guys prob lower than LOI FD - or is that being unkind?) the record books will still show a 4-0 win in many years to come.

A professional job by us, nothing more we could have asked for, 4 goals, clean sheet, no injuries. Covid before the game granted was very unfortunate and best wishes to the 3.

Game no 85 too in all competitions - can't be too many Irish clubs with more games than this, Rovers maybe.

**Edit as per Wiki - Rovers are on 76
