CUP EXIT

Our Cup dreams ended in a 3-0 nil away loss to Shamrock Rovers last Friday night. The score line was a bit harsh on a battling Town side in a game played in front of about 2,000 supporters, many of them travelling up the M4 for the occasion. Some Rovers fans were hoping for an other First Division team in the next round but good luck to the Hoops whoever they draw. Tony Cousins fielded a strong team which surprised a few Town supporters. Some then were pointing to two losses in a row but quite frankly, nothing can be read into those results with two totally different competitions in question. Shels drew their game and will have a replay before we face them later in the week. Again, a few were hoping before the game that we wouldn’t be in that position which of course increases the injury and fatigue risks. As the cliché goes, it’s a case of putting it behind us and focusing on a much more important game this Friday night.

DE TOWN STILL TOPS

Despite that sickening late, late goal for Galway FC on Saturday night, we’re still top of the pile but with an ever decreasing buffer zone. Despite Gary Shaw’s early opener after good work from Sully, we seemed to give the opposition too much time and space, especially in their half. Too often, Galway were able to build solid attacks without a Town player touching the ball. Despite plenty of chances we just couldn’t make it count and boy, did they punish our mistakes. However, there’s a long, long way to go yet with plenty of time to get back to better performances and winning ways.It’s heartening to see increased crowds coming out to support De Town. We still have Wexford  Youths, Cobh Ramblers and Rovers B at home in the league and it’s vital that there’s even greater home support to help in the push for what will be an extremely tough end of season promotion race.

No one said it’d be easy, we have an excellent and talented squad,we simply have to push on and with more  genuine, local, positive support, the dream can be achieved. Remember, we’re still tops and we aim at keeping it that way. C’mon De Town.

Section O Says Hello (13/08/14)

Good evening and welcome ladies and gents once again from the other side of the ground! Having mentioned in last week’s notes that we were running out of things to complain about, the lads did the honourable thing last week by dropping points and giving us an opportunity to fill some space in this week’s notes! The inevitable overdue slip up, which a lot of us feared was always coming finally arrived and as many of us expected, Finn Harps were the ones who inflicted it upon us. Having said that the result against Harps shouldn’t have the alarm bells ringing just yet! Once again, as in the last few of our games, we started poorly and the first half was certainly nothing to write home about. However, we bossed the majority of the second half with plenty of possession and chances but it just wasn’t to be our day as some bad luck with a bit of help from some excellent defending from Harps meant the ball just wouldn’t go in for us! If that is going to be the slip in form which we all feared then so be it! We are now going into the last round of games 4 points clear which none of us would have turned down if offered at the start of the season! The next two league games against Galway tonight and Shels on Friday week are vital but no matter what happens in them it is still important for the team to keep focused for the supposed easier games! Tonight’s opponents Galway have had a slip in form in recent times which sees them down to 4th place but still right in the mix for playoff spots! Our last game against them was one of our best performances of the season….lets hope the lads can lift it again tonight!

Supporters Club Notes (10/08/14)

POINT MADE

For anyone under the false illusion that winning this league is easy, the point was well well made following our scoreless draw against Finn Harps. We came away with just one point which in turn cut our six point lead down to four. Heading into round four of four rounds, every single game is going to be tough or as Tony Cousins put it, “ each game will be a cup final.”

Finn Harps seem to be the draw specialists and they certainly frustrated us on Saturday night.Though their keeper made an excellent save in added time, he was never really tested throughout the game.And yet we had most of the possession, especially in the second half but for once, we just couldn’t make it count. We came close a few times, but never close enough to bulge the net.Apart from receiving his player of the month trophy, Paul Hunt had just one save to make at the other end and added to his impressive count of clean sheets.

At kick off time, the crowd seemed small enough but within about ten minutes, the late comers arrived in droves. Don’t leave it till the last minute for the remaining games, come early and enjoy a pre match cuppa in the Clubhouse under the stand where the best value in Ireland is still to be had.

Section O Says Hello (06/08/14)

Shake it up baby now!!

Allo everybody from the other side of the ground! Things are going quite well aren’t they? Too well you could almost say! Given that these notes were basically set up as a platform to rant as much as we want, it is becoming increasing difficult to have such rants with things going so well on the pitch! The team are clearly in fantastic form and as we slowly pick up each win under our belt it is becoming increasingly difficult not to start to ponder about the “P” word.  After the hurt and even embarrassment in terms of last season some Town fans felt, it is with great restraint that we are trying our best not to get too excited but thankfully I suppose we’re not the ones in charge of this. Despite the amazing run we are currently on, I think it’s fair to say that our performance has slightly dropped in the last few games. For large parts of the last 3 games against Wexford, Waterford and Rovers B on Friday night we barely looked like we were leaving 3rd gear. Having said that the old overused cliché that the sign of champions is winning the games where you’re not playing well does have some truth to it but it is still vital that the lads pick up the performances for one last push starting with tonight as the lads from Ballybofey arrive down no doubt intent on kicking us up and down the pitch! To give credit to Harps, they are currently on a 6 match unbeaten run and to go further back have only lost once in their last 12 thanks to Glen O’Connor’s wonder strike for us up in Ballybofey at the start of June! They have always been our bogey team and would love nothing better than to put an end to our run as they strive to make a promotion spot! Let’s hope the lads as in previous weeks can keep focused and get the job done! MON DE TOWN!

ONE STEP CLOSER!

A huge expectant travelling support descended on Tallaght on Friday evening as Longford took over the stadium while watching the lads take that one step closer to promotion. Coming into the game, there was a stark contrast in the recent fortunes of the two teams with Rovers B on an 8 game losing streak while Town in comparison were on a 7 game winning streak. As was the case against Waterford, Town made a slow start to the game keeping most of the possession but failing to make any of their few chances count against a Rovers team who seemed content on sitting back and letting the game play out. Town came out in the second half energised and determined to get the job done but even with the plenty of encouragement from the stands it wasn’t until the 61st minute that the deadlock was broken as Mark Salmon sold a quick dummy to the Shamrock Rovers defender before slotting the ball past their keeper sending the fans into raptures. At this point it was clear just how many Town fans were present in Tallaght as the majority of the crowd in the stadium stood to their feet.  Minutes later it was two as that man David O’Sullivan twisted and turned inside the Rovers box before calmly passing into the net ensuring victory. In truth Town never really looked like they had left 3rd gear and the icing was put on the cake in the dying minutes when Sully scored an almost identical goal to his first turning the Rovers defence inside out with ease. As each win goes by it is getting increasingly hard for most of us to keep our expectations down as we’ve all been burnt before but one thing is for sure, at the moment it feels good to be a Town fan.
