Going into extra time level on agg and playing against 10 men and not even taking it to penalties seems very sloppy. I don't know how Rovers managed to get a player sent off when everything was in their favour.

I'm not one to defend shamrock but jaysus that sounds bizarre. They were playing against a team far better than them just look at their results last season. Blistering heat. Rovers lad sent off after playing 90 mins against very good players in that heat. I'd imagine it was a tired mistimed challenge. 

It wasn't. It was deliberate and needless. Rush of blood to the head maybe but it was a total brain fart and cost them the tie imo.

Heartbreaking.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

We let a great opportunity slip away slip tonight. Poor game management by players. The least should have been a pen shoot out. Great to see so many travel away again so soon after Bergen. While understandably distraught after the result tonight, my team is in a great place. Ireland's No 1. KOH 1724.

2-1 down and with 10 men for a portion of the game?

Why couldn't Rovers take advantage of the the extra man and win the game.

11 > 10

I couldn’t find a stream so I was watching BET365 for updates. For about 30 seconds Shams were favs. Apollon were under evens constantly apart from that 30 second spell.

Apollon are a serious team and I’m sure it was over 30 degrees in Cyprus.


They looked a seriously average team in Dublin last week.

Apollen played for an hour with 10 men. 1 hour!

i didnt see that, but after the rovers goal rovers looked ok and comfortable, the cypriots were a better team but they were unravelling (so much play acting , diving etc) i think rovers shouldve taken it to penos... irish teams often get players sent off in euro ties.. tiredness or unable to get a proper tackle in...

Once Rob Harvey isn't the ref we should have a chance at home against them.
