It will never gain viewers being on at that hour of night anyway. Look at this Bridget and Eamon s.h.i.t. that's on tv now and tell me they couldn't bring it forward a couple of hours. Having a LOI highlights programme on at a decent time will bring it more viewers and give the league more exposure every week , which in turn could lead to more people attending and taking an interest in it. It just boils my piss when I think of it.

Keith Fahey is very poor at the pundit gig. It's a pity but he was the same last season.
Disecting a Dundalk goal he referred to a Bray player as the "other fella".

I think they've had four figures for viewers for it before, time slot won't change that, will help but won't get anywhere near What's on before it, it's a shame but it'd the truth

Keith Fahey, while Im sure he has an intelligent opinion about football, should never be in a position where he has to talk on TV. Its the most boring, monotone, drawn out accent and way of speaking I've ever heard, rotten.

No mention of Mark Farren tribute which was disappointing...Plenty of time to discuss the national team. Also they need to cut down the punditry and show more of the action. Although at the Harps game they showed everything they couldLOL

Annoying that they didn't show the programme on the RTE player outside of Ireland.

Download Hola for chrome.

As for the time I actually don't think that's it's biggest issue, obviously not ideal but it wasn't doing roaring business when it was on at 8 either. Most people watch stuff online or record TV so anyone that wants to watch it can. It's also only on a half an hour later than match of the days Saturday weekend slot.

It's major issue is its on 2-3 days after the matches have been played.
A Saturday/Sunday night slot at the same time where people could either watch it live or throw it on the day after while they're dying on the Sofa would be ideal.
Every club in the league would be able to throw up a highlights package of their weekend game every Monday morning on their social media page too.

Now I know there'd be an issue with Monday games but they're f**king stupid anyway. Game week 2 and we're already having a double header weekend!

Tony McDonnell, Keith Fahey, Peter Collins, Richard Sadlier, Kenny Cunningham etc how many boring dry sh*tes do RTE want covering the league eh?

Nah, can`t agree with that "Green Devil". While I had my reservations about Peter Collins during the early days of the show, I think he has grown into his role as a very good anchor. He`s sensitive to the viewers and knows how to move the show along.

Agree about Fahey. He looked pained and uncomfortable throughout last night`s show, as though he was asking "wtf am I doing here?". Tony Mc Donnell is a natural fit and I invariably find myself agreeing with his analysis. He knows our league inside out and deserves to be a mainstay on the panel.

As for scheduling, I work nights and simply record the show to watch the following day. But seeing as games are played on Friday and Saturday evenings, surely Sundays are the best day to broadcast a highlights package? Otherwise the league action becomes a bit dated by Monday night.

The thunderbird tea boy has grown into nothing, how he is presenting anything, anywhere is one of the great mysteries of RTE sport.
Of course you agree with Tony Mc, you might as will be him. Unnecessarily long answers full of trite expressions and clichés.

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.

Get back in your box you tit.
The lads entitled to give his opinion on football on a football forum.
I don't know what kind of sexual experience you had with a teaboy but you seem to have turned Peter Collins into an effigy.

There simply isn't anyone else to present the f**king thing. No one wants it. Not Darragh Maloney, Tony O'Donoghue or anyone else and neither does any other station. I suffered Tommy Martin doing TV3 CL coverage last night and this is a station I've heard touted for it even though when they used to do it they had it on later than RTE does now.

Of course he is, where did I say otherwise? Merely observed his manner of doing so.
I have absolutely no idea what you are on about in the next line, or how I turned anyone into an effigy, never mind the bizarre sexual reference.
As for the last bit, they are sports presenters, if they do not want to present sport, sack them. The problem on RTE is they are nearly all is inept as each other, special vitriol for Collins' own brand of ineptitude though.

Tony O'Donoghue has a dream job where he travels the world following the Irish side and international soccer news. I would give both nuts and an arm for his job! Why would he limit his ability to do that by presenting a weekly show?

Darragh Maloney is the chief international presenter, does commentary and I presume although I don't listen to RTE radio, that he does a radio show as well. As I write he's just popped on the TV hosting the CL match. He's probably not in a position to commit to a weekly show.

In fairness to both men they have contributed to the show to varying degrees.

The Bohs V Cork game last Friday had a viewership of 54k. That was despite RTE putting on a decent amount of ads in the days leading up to it,it being the pick of the opening day fixtures and hosted in front of a big crowd in the only 4 sided LOI venue.
To hammer home the point an unadvertised short notice decision to show 2 episodes of Father Ted in memory of Frank Kelly managed 89,000 viewers. Interestingly it started at 11 o'clock on a weekday night something people highlight as a barrier for SR.

I'm no great fan of some of the tripe on RTE but the simple fact is sh*te like Bridget&Eamon just does far better in terms of viewership than live /highlights of LOI regardless of time .

The leagues major problem is enough people aren't going to games blaming our woes on Peter Collins is the height of stupidity.

Finally getting around to watching it, they really need to sort out the lack of replays, annoying having to rewind the box to watch goals again
