Dundalk v Drogheda Utd | League Round 32 | Friday 29 September 19.45

Post by oldfogey »

Drogheda will definitely rock up on Friday night believing they can do us following that win in Inchicore tonight. It's not as if Pat's had nothing to play for. It really has been a crazy League with form going out the window from week to week.

The theory that no one wants to win it looks more spot on by the week. Great performance last night but counts for nothing without 3 points friday. Teams around us dropping points and we've as good a run in as ya could ask for. Hoping for a miracle still, but there's a chance

Ticket info for Friday. I would imagine the Stand will sell out, as will the away allocation.

I wouldn't be surprised if Galway won the Cup. It's all about Pat's and Bohs playing each other in a final.
Galway are playing at home in the Semi, and rest of the season revolves around that game with the League won

Agree with you, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Galway win the cup

This is potentially the last meaningful game of the season. A win and our slim slim chances of Europe are still alive. Any other result and I think it's our season over. Hopefully there is a decent crowd and a good derby atmosphere and the players rise to it and keep our faint hopes alive!!

Deserved win even though we coughed up a couple of chances. Paul Doyle was good , proper centre mid. Dickie never stopped, plenty of good performances overall.

Deserved the victory. Played well enough. Thought Benson had a great game at rightfull and was my motm.Sloggett isn't a CB. Doyle had a good game. Massive game next weekend v shels.

Was a bit more comfortable than I thought it would be, we still looked dodgy with the ball over the top , brownlie doesn't look comfortable with the ball and takes ages sorting his feet out , thought Paul Doyle was motm with Benson doing well also , Kelly speed and tracking back got us out of trouble a couple of times second half , good win roll on shels.

Doyle was my man of the match as well, terrific player if only he could stay fit. Always good to beat them, great atmosphere but again an incorrect attendance put out by the club.

My season ticket wasn't scanned because there literally wasn't a scanner.

I think we have missed a fully fit Doyle in midfield all year. Terrific tonight. Didn't think slogget played too bad in defense again.

Goal we gave away was terrible. Dogs also had two one on ones which they should have scored. One hit the bar, the other ballooned.

Disappointed to hear of more Dogs trouble after the game. Can't contain themselves during these games at all.

Finally great to hear of a BIG crowd back. Badly needed.

Quiet enough on Orielweb after those two results!!!

Agree re crowd, I thought there was 3k .
Silly flares going to cost us money again.
Doyle, benson and Kelly all great. Ryan had a brilliant solo run near the end, would have been goal of the season.
We still need a lot of things to fall our way but we’re not out of Europe hunt yet

Missed both of last games in the flesh so probably should stay away for the rest of the season as maybe I'm a Jonah....

On paper we should easily dispose of both Cork and/or Drogheda but we have been a combination of either terrible in games or dominant at times and not putting teams away. There seems to be fire in our bellies over the last couple of games though albeit against two of the poorest teams in the league.

I'm not overly confident picking up wins against Shels or Bohs but who knows. We have enough good players in the team that we can beat anyone. We also have enough passengers that we can lose to anyone.
