And how have we gone from Elliot being the sole striker to being on the bench behind 2 other strikers? Club captain is on the bench... there is hope ;-)
The club preview did say that Shelvey and Walker were doubts. If Mayowa went off with concussion, he probably didn't pass the fitness test.

Looks like a 442 formation tonight. Might aswell change it up a bit.

Hoban with 2 so far tonight. That was a great decision wasn't it.

Why is Mahon not getting any game time? He looked our best player in pre season.

Horrendous stuff, no shape, no intent, no nothing with this team. St Pats not much better, We are the UCD this year. Unless something gives we are heading straight down to first division. We are clueless.

Nothing learned, once again we look to be second best and without a plan .... not good enough, SOD has bought or given his OK for these players to come in, so the buck ends at this door. If we had a certain Italian in the dugout or anyone other manager their would be protests tonight. Time for BA to take action or risk having to finance a first division season or two.

It was a slightly improved performance but couldn't have been much worse. However still not remotely good enough. This side isn't good enough to stay up.
Also if O'Donnell honestly thought Hoban wasn't good enough for to lead the line this season, I would love for him to be asked about this and his reasons for thinking this. Considering after 5 games he has already scored more goals than any Dundalk player will this season.

Is BA the answer either?

He is the man putting the money on the table and paying the bills at the moment, not many others lining up to buy the club. He has given SOD and Garts a long rope ... they are slowly but surely feeling it tighten around their necks. As the current CEO and owner he has a decision to make or he has to live with the consequences, something which will not make us any more attractive for investment. Imagine his sales pitch ... "Hey lads, I need a few of you to pump a few grand every month into a football club back home in Ireland .... sure we were in the group stages of Europe a few years back ..... bottom of the table as it stands and a manager who looks like his approach to tactics is to throw shit at the wall and hope some of it sticks".

O'Donnell didn't appreciate Hobans comments following the Galway cup game last season, explains why Hoban is in Derry now and we are left with Elliot 😂😂. At this stage why not look outside of Ireland into Europe for a new manager, no not a Yank, sure what have we to lose this season. Many European teams look outside there countries for managers with a certain amount of success. Seems every other club in the league getting good investments,. Drogheda owners buying there own grounds, Pats getting investment from USA. Why USA getting involved in loi I can't understand, any half decent player is gone in no time to England. Rant over 😁😁

1 goal in 4 games this season and as per James Rogers conceding the first goal in 2/3 of games since start of last season. Worrying times

Disappointing , Pats are poor also.

I know it’s only 4 games in, but you told have to worry that we are in a real relegation fight this year .

I can see Waterford hitting 2 or 3 past us next week.

It may be only 4 games but I've seen enough, players not good enough no system no bit second to every ball.SOD doesn't exactly fill me with hope, same excuses every week, you can't even see his annoyance with the performance. Enthusiasm from him solely lacking, team selection must be picked out of a hat .There can be no more excuses his team for the second year ,a decision must be made shortly.

Thankfully I was working yesterday evening and didn’t see the match. However, there must be one positive…regardless of how Pats performed we only conceded one.
