Now if O'Donnell comes on and d fends that performance he can stay in Galway and not come back.

Absolute disgrace. Defies logic this.

Have to say previous 2 games we looked half decent but 2 down to a first division team extremely unacceptable. Next season no euro money, what will our dynamic board come up with. Wonder will one of the owners pump back the money he made when he sold the club to the yanks.

The question has to be asked are the players not bothering their holes, simply not good enough or both? Factor in O'Donnell isn't up to it and the owners aren't investing. And we are in big trouble on and off the pitch.

Hope those who travelled give it to them at full time if they've not already left. I've defended this team to the hilt but I can't defend this.

This is the managers fault. He doesn't pick his best 11 available. Puts full back at centre back, inverted full back, a former international winger not on the wing, a guy who's played 2 professional games left wing, no number 6....etc etc etc.

Hurley has been very good. He should do well in the Premier next season. Brownlie and co the back have been awful.

I fear this could be the beginning of the end for O'Donnell. Seemed to be a cracking appointment but we've gone backwards this season. Too much faith in players that either aren't good enough or letting him down. Tactics are all over the shop at times and some of the player selections are utterly baffling.

There is just no defending him or the team tonight

A lot of us here will remember us getting beaten by Ashtown Villa in the cup back in the 90s some time. This is up there with that defeat. Its a team tonight that has given up. And for me, its all down to O'Donnell. His team selections, formations and tactics change from week to week. Its no wonder the players have lost interest. Having said that, they need to shoulder some of the blame too.

I think that Dave Mackey was the brains of the operation last year.
