Club football gone mad


#21

but sure Vincent’s have probably spent at least 120k over the last 3 years on their senior team.


#22

Everybody speaks in riddles. Who’s the club? And who’s the director? Ex county or what?

Can’t have a discussion without facts.


#23

Stay out of it South_Dub - this is a North_Dub matter


#24

Malahide lads


#25

Syls so. Anybody we know?

I do think there is a place for having one if he is having and impact from under 10s up.

Not if it’s somebody just to come in a senior level. How would you get your money’s worth u less he’s the coach.


#26

Think both the club and the Dof have both been confirmed in the above thread. It is the club and name that I’ve heard.


#27

If it’s Syls they’ve Talty doing that job now about 2 years at least

I120k over 3 years - I’d guess your figure could we be correct but there’s a difference between sticking it in someone’s back pocket or spending it on all the necessities of getting of winning DSFC twice in 3 years and going far/winning all Ireland.

  • gear
  • S&C
  • physio
  • transport
  • weekends away
  • nutrition
  • video analysis

That said there should always be a balance of spend relative to other areas of a club .

Nobody is disputing the need to spend money but spending large chunk on 1 manager fees when the players aren’t there And it be more sensible to spend money over 4-5 years developing quality of player needed.

From what I m led to believe a lot of mentors are being given made to wait for 3/4 months to get paid what they are owed while huge amount of money spent on Adult Football team . I can understand investing money in club s future but this ??? Not sure if the have a club coach already I just see this as unnecessary waste of money they don’t seem to have? ??


#30

My point is that that’s a huge sum to spend on one team. I’d actually see a director of coaching channelled correctly being beneficial


#31

Are you pulling that €120k figure from the sky or basing it on any information you have?


#32

Careful now lads, I know you haven’t yet but don’t go naming people and figures etc.


#33

When I heard the figure of a certain manager. Let’s say a top eight senior club in Dublin is getting. It’s gone really mad!!


#34

I wonder was it higher or lower than a lad managing a team in Roscommon got?


#35

Well the figures I’ve heard for the senior manager and Dof is not 120k…I’ve heard 50k for the 2.
But when u take in the club coach position,it could well be 120k.


#36

I don’t fly kites. The average spend for the Dublin sfc among the elite - across the board it has to be said is an arms race


#37

What is the average payment ?


#38

That’s probably on a need-to-know basis.
