The young lad doesn't deserve to be dropped if that is the case, has been one of our better players this season.
As for Cotter .... our fullbacks should be learning from his attacking play. They could learn a lot from his second half performance.
No idea Pepsi. He seemed to be the scapegoat. Subbed off in games, and now on the bench. He is a decent defender. I know we won't get him but I'd d finitely be trying to get him again next season. Deserves his game and is a better defender than Bone.
If the lad is fit then he is being hard done by. Certainly will be an interesting off season if we don't get Europe (or better said the money linked to it) we will see how serious the owner are. They will have to dig deep into their own pockets or find a number of cheap gems. Additionally, I feel and have said it before, we will need to look at the S&C department as we once again look off the pace.

The Waterford - Shelbourne semifinal is interesting for more than the obvious reason. Waterford will be looking to come out of the First Division playoffs to face UCD/Finn Harps in the promotion/relegation playoff. That tie (I believe it's single leg but stand to be corrected) is scheduled for the week leading up to the cup final. A lot of football to be played yet but interesting potential clash of priorities.
The play offs were over 2 legs over the past few years, unless they have changed it this year.

I may well be wrong but I think the initial round of the playoffs are one leg affairs then the division one playoff "final" and the playoff between winners of that and 2nd from bottom in premier division are both two legged ties.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

Yeah that's right. Waterford would be expected to get through. Galway have been a disappointment under John Caulfield.

Yes starting to get worried now whoever Derry play, Waterford will give then a right go, and Shels will be dogged as we saw last night.

Easy solution to this worry is to pull our sleeves up and fight to make 3rd place, which we are still in btw !

Macari all day long for me also in the last 4 but I'd agree with ML above I can see SOD sticking with him, also maybe now we know why Pats fans were not crying too much tears when he left, hate to go on and on about one of our own players, but Bone has been very poor last 2 months. Another one actually, I`m very disappointed in Martin, forgot he was even on the pitch !!!
