Deserved Champions. A joy to watch at times with Towell, Horgan, Meenan and Finn in attack. Excellent job done by Stephen Kenny.


Less than 3 years ago Dundalk were heading down to the RSC in the 2nd leg of the play-off after drawing the first leg at Oriel Park. They won 2-0. Now they've won back to back titles and have a cup final to look forward to. Waterford meanwhile won 4 matches all season and finished bottom of the first division..and have Roddy as their manager.

I think Chris Shields is the only play left from that squad.

Well done Dundalk. By far the best side in the league. Will be interesting to see what way it goes when Towell and horgan leave.

One defeat all season says it all. Well done Kenny & Co and you`ve set the standard for the rest of us next season. Any chance of releasing Dane Massey to the Hoops? :)

What a night Friday was, wasn't a vintage performance by any means but still did what we needed to do, great night back in the lilywhite after it.

I know Kenny won't ever admit it but inside he must have been delighted to win up there after the way he was treated.

That' 11 titles for us now, level with Bohs and the first time winning back to back titles, something the great teams in the 70's and 80's never achieved, to add a cup to that would be amazing.

Oh and what was with the pitch invasion the other night? that's about 4 of them from the shamrocks against us in the last 2 years. They really need to sort this issue out, it's becoming very embarrassing for them

How was he badly treated?

He lost a derby 5-1 to pats when he wasn't man enough to go into the dressing room at half time.

He was humiliated 3-0 to title rivals sligo when he gave a child his goal keeping debut.

He was hammered 4-0 in the derby, to ,without a shadow of a doubt, one of the worst boez teams since their amateur days.

He cost the club a fortune by being knocked out of europe by a pub team from Lithuania.

If anything he was treated too well at Rovers by being given too much time. He should have been given his marching orders after the derby defeat, a mistake we are still paying for now.

Congrats Dundalk on back to back titles. Its a pity Shamrocks, City, Pats can't step it up to that level because this season especially, its been such a poor league.

I think that issue is regarding with the tickets, though there was a statement telling that all tickets were given to Dundalk

Shoco, fair play on retaining a title, very hard to do. Kenny bombed badly at Rovers, simple as.

He has bounced back remarkably well.

This. He got too long if anything, it was very obvious very quickly that he was out of his depth.
Dundalk fans seem determined to make something out of nothing here. Some managers just don't work even though on paper they should. Kenny was a rabbit in the headlights from day one and fundamentally failed to understand what was expected of him and seemed to have issues working with everyone at the club from players, his own backroom staff and the board and signed appallingly bad players.  Credit to him for bouncing back and learning from his mistakes at Rovers - everything he has done at Dundalk was the literal opposite to how he did it at Rovers.

Congratulations to Dundalk, I don't think there can be any dispute that they were the best team by a distance over the course of the season. It was also nice to be there to see Bohs beat them at Oriel - a mere bump in the road for Dundalk on the way to winning the league but a great effort from our lads on the night. Anyway, well done.Clap

I fully expect a fully professional Dundalk performance Friday. These lads want to win the league by as many points as possible so sorry lads can only see 1 outcome, 2/3 goal win for us.
 
Shields/Mountany/Kilduff/Mennan/McMillan all playing for their cup final places helps aswell obviously

Dundalk have 8 full time paid backroom staff? Is this correct? No wonder they are miles ahead with fitness.
Where does all this money come from? (Genuine question not a typical LOI dig)
Hometown football, cant beat the feeling...
