i expect this to be a tight game ...derry have proved difficult to beat for rovers in the recent past ...derry at 5.6 on here is imo a great price ...if this game was in play i think you could make a lot of money ....maybe 1.0 to us after a hard struggle ....

I'm a lot more confident than you WR! No excuses tonight, we've our full squad to choose from for the first time this season and I expect a good game of football as Derry won't come to defend. I'll be backing us -1 goal and a small wager on Finn first goal.

1.1. final score i said derry were overpriced on here...again refering back to my earlier thread if this game was in play ..manna from heaven ...rovers played wonderfull football and struck on 25 mins ..derry looked cooked ..then as often happens rovers sat back  and  invited derry on..boy did they take the invite..having looked for all the world like they would stroll it...they were hard pressed to hold on at half time...derry started the second half as they had finished the first , they got the result their play deserved when they leveled midway through the second half.. why o'neill gets rovers to drop back everytime they score is beyond me....still on top an all to play for.....

Giant, its a fact not an exaggeration that Rovers squad is far superior to anyone else's in the league. How is that being too dismissive of everyone else. The fact is that if Jim McLaughlin had this squad of players against mainly mediocre opposition we'd score on average 4 goals a game. The fact we have a conservative manager is the only reason the gulf looks smaller than it actually is. If anyone reads this thread and sees the comments re racial abuse they're automatically thinking it was Rovers fans. It's actually a player that Zayed is complaining about.

Giant I say Jim McLaughlin as he managed the best LOI side in most people's memory, the Rovers four in a row side in the 8os. What I will also say is that most fans are inclined to say it's a bad league(and no doubt it is) when their own side can't win it. Bohs fans seem to forget that their own league winning sides the last twice weren't exactly Barcelonaesque and had the most diving cheats ever seen on one team in this Country!

It also shouldn't happen that Zayed should text his sister after the game who works for Hot Press and has a website( who makes a comment 'it wouldn't surprise me if it was the fans in Tallaght but a player...'. That disgraceful and I hope she will be taken to task. Aside from what allegedly happened in Inchicore and Tallaght the saddest thing about all this is that certain people desperately want this to be true  because it's Shamrock Rovers.

The player alleged to have made the comments is a well known scumbag. It boils down to word on word, amazing to think that some people will have thought Zayed is capable of making it up yet has no previous, while the said player is simply a yob. Can't help but feel Shamrock Rovers are shielding a yob rather than deal with the thorny issue at hand.

Fair points Rocket. Unfortunately the football writers at the Herald and Sun, Aidan Fitzmaurice and Neil O'Riordan are Bohs fans and, well you know where I'm heading with this. Fitzmaurice has a rant about something unproven as of yet, and at the same time, in his whole page of whinging, never mentions once that a Bohs player was found guilty of this last season. Unfortunately people accuse most of us Rovers fans of being 'arrogant' or something along those lines. But if you only knew the jealousy within the league of our club at present you'd realise why we take great pleasure in every trophy.

I`ve stayed out of this up to now but your spin takes the biscuit MJK.
You have an extraordinary HABIT of bringing Bohs into every negative Rovers story!!!
If he is charged,you`ll be telling us that the player in question was taught racism as a subject in his time at Dalymount!
McGuinness, the Former Bohs (and Rovers) player you refer to, admitted his wrongdoing and was punished accordingly. And it was 2 years ago not last season.
The so called Bohs journalists you refer to, are not shy of breaking bad news in Dalymount either. I have spoken out against the formers rag reporting in the past. He was a childhood friend of mine too btw.
It`s an average parochial league remember that takes a lot of loving to report on. They are doing the job the`re paid to do.
You would prefer they swept it under the carpet which is Rovers policy. Not just now but your general policy.
You`ve always turned a blind eye to your substantial hooligan element, so much so that many of your former troublemakers are now running the club.
