Niall sure the ringleaders who got the whole thing going can hardly do a thing ... as the man who put the idea of a protest to them and a few promises here and there about when he got control back is sitting comfy in Oriel. SS and Peak6 are still close today ... any chance they can ring them up and ask for a few quid or investment to cover next season?

Feels very much like it did in Ian Fosters second season. Conceding goals for fun, with an inevitability about the outcome of the manager and squads' future, and many unanswered questions about the season to follow....

Shelbourne look to be on the up since the Hull loanees joined. Harry Wood has been excellent for them.

Excellent first half but same old story that we can't put teams away when we're dominating. Then two poxy balls over the top are our undoing. We definitely deserved at least a draw out of the game. Ref was shocking also.

We've had too many hard luck stories this season though and now we're running out of games. It's going to take an incredible run and a massive amount of luck to salvage the season and finish fourth and hope Pats win the cup. Can't see it happening

Not sure tonight was one of those hard luck stories. Yes, we were decent in the first half but if Pats had been a bit more clinical, they could have scored. 2nd half, it looked like a different Dundalk team came out. Pats got better and we got worse and as usual, there was no plan B from the bench apart from throwing a few subs on. Putting Elliot on in injury time?? Was that just cause we had a sub left? Can't see any other reason!

Not sure who would want it Niall, but now is the time to get someone in and start building for next year. We aren't going to get relegated so why not bring a few U19s in for the rest of the season and see if any of them are up to the standard.

That's probably season over now , it's been a poor season and the table doesn't lie , but in saying that the league itself has been horrendous this year and was reflected by the club's euro performances ,a really poor rovers 5 points ahead of a toothless Derry side , pat's could end up running it very close if they win the game in hand , as for us it's a total reset needed no matter who's in charge next season, Davies has been the only player you could say was consistent in his performances, recruitment needs a massive overhaul and we have to start bringing through academy players, pat's had a 15, 17 ,18 and 19 year old on the pitch tonight all of whom played in their academy, if they're good enough give them a run , Sheppard's form has dipped lately also , it might be due to an unsettled defence in front of him or the fact that his future is in doubt, can't solely blame the UK imports as some of our senior players haven't preformed either, alot of big decisions ahead.

Realistically the season was already over and eyes should be on next year.

First half was good, second half fell apart in the first ten minutes, it came alive again later, Forrester going down broke the momentum, you could see how frustrated Stephen was at that point, with such a weak league this year feels very much like a missed opportunity.

Yeah Pat's have some excellent young players. Melia is big and powerful a bit like Evan Ferguson at that age. Lonergan took the 2 goals well. Adam Murphy is a very good midfielder
