Wonder did the Rovers fans keep their "Enough is Enough Bradley it's time to go" protest banners 🤔 🖤🤍
Judging by their reactions all over social media, I'd say they are dusting it down as we speak!!!

There's an image up on Snapchat, presume our fans were giving them an earful, Rovers players stood outside the front of oriel instead of getting on their bus. Pico Lopes front in centre, shouting back.

I'd imagine there's a video going around.

Club have a statement out. They've identified the person involved. Hopefully a lengthy ban.

On the occasion of a great win a knuckle dragger brings Shame to the club.

Disgraceful carry on after the game if true. Also the clown mouthing off all game at the terrace in front of the stand needs a ban, the guards and Martin Connolly had to speak to him during the game over what he was shouting .

In relation to the game, it was the BEST atmosphere in oriel in years, it was like the good days all over again.
Every player put in a performance.

Was Horgan is the stand with the Dundalk lads 👀?

Honestly one of the best days I had in Oriel ever, the team gave everything and felt like we headed & cleared every ball with them.
Whatever its faults there's nowhere like Oriel when it's rocking like that it was absolutely bouncing.
All were brilliant especially Shep,Boyler,Muller etc but feel like need to shout out John Martin.
Been critical of him before but between Thurday & today the shift he put in was immense, some of the tackles to win the ball back or break up Rovers play were brilliant. Fella would run himself into the ground for the team and you can't ask anymore than that.

Chris Shields definitely was. He appeared at the side of the tunnel at full time.

RVs are poor all season they took their eye off the prize in recruitment cos standard of LGE has been poor we had cork pushing us every season they have nobody. And COVID half season title win gave them the belief while we imploded and the rest were not near the standard. They are an ageing side and no quality in the new recruits. I've never rated Burke don't know how he signed for Preston let alone ever got senior international caps. Greene is useless. Having said all that they should have had enough about them to force extra time playing ten men for almost 70 mins. RVs are signing young fellas to flog to keep them afloat. The big problem for them is a major overhaul required in one go is hard to accomplish. Kenny did U t 1-2 players max in a season. That's why above anything else I'd be signing Sheppard on 2-3 yr deal ahead of a new signing or Horgan etc. RVs will rebuild and he is a young keeper proven at loi standard. Plus he will eventually go back to UK so whoever gets him here next yr could well be looking at a tidy profit in tf window.
Watch the attendances fall rapidly in Tallaght if they win nothing this yr. Add in failure to make group stages and things might not be so Rosey in the garden.
Equally for us 2600 was a shocking attendance. No matter what round home to RVs should be over 4k minimum .
Onto us, John Martin played his best two matches for us this week. Never stopped. Tremendous effort. Boyler top class Archie Davies excellent.

So proud of the team last night. What a battling performance when everything seemed to go against us. Thought the ref was very poor but no complaints about the sending off.

Some big big performances from our players. Boyle had his best game since he came back, Muller had his best game for us, Yil Kokko had his best game for us, Martin was like a man possessed. Sheppard outstanding. I'm probably forgetting someone but they were the real stand outs in an awesome team performance.

Atmosphere was electric too but was shocked with the Rovers "fans" not a peep out of them for the entire second half apart from whinging about frees etc.

Every time a RVs player was tackled they went down in a heap hand up looking for a free and a Booking.

Same thing happened me at the Magpies game on Thursday, me and my son and 2 of his mates and mine was the only one that scanned. But, to be fair there could be connection issues with the scanners and if there's a queue building up, the guy checking the tickets is bound to feel under pressure and just visually check the tickets.

Typical National Broadcaster.

No reference at all on Game On to Dundalk's win over Rovers - or indeed any of the weekends cup ties.
