    He's talking through his arse. Here's the bit on Liverpool's site
    http://www.lfctour.com/news/latest-n...-fixturein-may

    Here's the bit on Rovers site
    http://www.shamrockrovers.ie/news/35...rs-v-liverpool

    Not a single mention of Warrior. Both would mention one of the biggest sponsors if they were involved in the friendly

    FAI organised. 100%

    Recon there's plenty of clubs in the league that aren't too happy about Rovers or any club the FAI could have chosen been handed what will be unbalanced publicity and revenue in all sorts of ways compared to themselves... Rovers have already had high profile fixtures against Madrid and Spurs among others... This could have been another clubs chance!

    Madrid was Platinum One and SPurs was in Europe.

    not defending anyone, just pointing out how they're different

    Course, but the FAI went about selecting a club to play Liverpool knowing full well it would create major promotion for that club then surely Rovers having already had significant promotion already for example playing them fixtures i mentioned shouldn't have been chosen, take nothing away from Rovers, fair play to them, they've just been asked to turn up, not their fault...

    I doubt the FAI thought anything other than their own revenue

    its to do with Warrior the kit maker. They seem very proactive, every schoolboy academy kid got a free Jersey.


    edit..just saw dodges rant lol, I was told as soon as the warrior deal was signed this game was happening. Who knows, nice coup tho but I'd rather be in the champions league draw :-P

    If the FAI are so worried about appeasing kit makers, when is our friendly against Everton? After all Liverpool is a city with such cultural and historic links to Dublin.

    that's not a rant. I don't care if Rovers play and I don't mind who organises them. good luck to them

    But Liverpool and the FAI get the majority of money.

    Rovers have an allocation of 7,000 tickets FWIW

    Thought there was some new rule that if a concussion was confirmed, the player isn't allowed play for 17-21 days? Is that not why Ger hadn't been playing?

    Shams look solid last night and deserved the 3 points. Sligo on the other hand looked dangerous on the counter attack but very poor when they didn't have the ball.

    Anyone else thinking 15/2 for Chelsea to win the Premiership after the weekend's results is a big overreaction by the bookies? Bar the Liverpool game (which they're well capable of winning - look what they did to City away) their remaining fixtures look very winnable (granted Villa and Palace did too). Liverpool have a tough run-in and with practically no title winning experience among either players or managers, you'd have to have doubts about how they'll handle the pressure and hype. It looks like it's City's to lose but I have doubts about them in crunch games too, they rarely perform anywhere near their best in such games. Think Chelsea are worth a punt meself.

    It's between City and Chelsea, a Mourinho masterclass will make sure they win at Anfield and I can see City dropping points there. 15/2 a great price

    Momentum for Liverpool is Huge.

    Chelsea and City in Anfield, which is a fortress this year won't be easy.

    I still don't believe Liverpool can win it, but This isn't Mourinho's team and City look shakey without Aguero.
