Dublin 1-16 Derry 1-11. No real surprise that result with the amount of changes Derry made.
#2
Half time Derry 1-4 Dublin 0-9. Goal came at a good time for the home side at stage when it appeared the Dubs would pull away. Derry will need to apply a bit more pressure on the Dublin shooters from distance as they are well able to find the range unlike some other teams.

Quote from: screenexile on February 28, 2024, 05:22:29 PMDublin @ 6/5 to win is massively overpriced!!!

I really hope we can get a win but based on how Dublin and ourselves played last weekend I just can't see it. I thought we were quite poor against a very average Galway side and could have lost only for certain decisions going against them. Celtic Park is a factor of course but I just think the Dubs would have to be favourites given how they dismantled Kerry last week.

The game was basically over after 20 mins!

Going by the bookies and their punters they think history will repeat itself with Derry to beat Dublin in round 5 by one point.  Derry at home as a team should defend a lot better than Kerry did in Croke park last weekend but I'm sure Dublin will be determined to not allow what happened in Celtic Park last year be repeated.

Injuries to key derry players will be a huge factor. If McKinless and Conor Doherty are out, that's a huge swing factor.
It would also be a huge step up for Scullion in goals.


Injuries won't help Derry's cause, I'm still expecting a good competitive battle between the two in what could well be the dress rehearsal for the league final at the end of March.

Quote from: gallsman on February 29, 2024, 07:15:15 PMIncredible stats yesterday on Second Captains about the number of times teams have allowed 20+ shots against them.

United under ETH - 12 times in 64 league games.

Liverpool under Klopp - 2 times in 322 games

City under Pep - 4 times in 292

Arsenal under Arteta - 7 times in 161 games.


Looked up that stat up for this season and it's happened 8 times,  The end results was defeats to Man City,Newcastle.  Drew with Liverpool and wins against Wolves,Everton,West ham,Aston Villa,Luton

Haaland has found his goal scoring form in time for the Manchester Derby.

Watching Blackburn v Newcastle no goals so far but the home side with the best chances and you wouldn't think they are 16th in the championship.

Gone to penalties good old fashioned cup tie.

Quote from: sligoman2 on February 27, 2024, 04:50:59 PMGood win for us - have a feeling our last game v Westmeath will determine who goes up with Down..

Would this week's match v Down not be a decider more so than the Westmeath game?

Quote from: seafoid on February 26, 2024, 08:54:56 PMIf Kildare get relegated they will be odds on for the Tailteann. Relegation last year did Meath no harm.

Meath didn't get relegated last year it was Clare and Limerick. Kildare can still avoid the Tailteann cup by beating the winner of Westmeath v Wicklow in the Leinster Quarter final and then beat Louth,Carlow or Wexford in the semi final.

Late drama and some way to win and lose a game but could have been pulled for steps? Leitrim the week before did get lucky with the late penalty.

The black for Molloy in the Galway v Derry game was debatable. Trips on purpose are a black card offence not sure can you say that about Molloys tackle/foul.

Not sure how the ref deemed it as a clear goal scoring opportunity when there was a covering defender and the Derry player was kicking for a point. Galway with half of their team out injured should draw plenty of encouragement to be as competitive as they were against the form team in division 1.


League final could well be the repeat of Division 2 last year. The relegation battle is intriguing with five teams still seeking points to avoid the trap door.
