League of Ireland

Meanwhile, true Irish soccer fans continue with their subscriptions to Sky Sports.

Didn’t Delaney get some job on a Fifa committee? How can he keep CEO role with FAI if involved in that? Always keeps the head down when there is crisis with clubs.


#385

Remember Brian Kerr ripping into him years ago?


#386

So Bray never paid the players. Strike action initiated.


#387

Fran the man too busy to meet with anyone. No communication from him to the players before speaking to Joanne Cantwell. Genuinely think Fran Gavin hates football


#388

Is he the photographer? Has he any qualifications for the job?


#389

Bonner was shafted instead of Delaney taking a pay cut at the time. He got rid of Kerr at first opportunity and replaced with Steve Staunton.,


#390

Yep got rid of Kerr and promised a ‘World Class’ replacement…


#391

The question is why did Staunton emerge from nowhere to suddenly become the manager. ? A credible rumour was doing the rounds back then. One tabloid questioned Delaney but he did a good job burying the story.


#392

I’m The Gaffer and the buck stops with me …


#393

Don’t remember the rumour…
PM me the highlights please & thank you


#394

Bray kicked out of the Irn Bru Cup (Competition for teams outside of the SPL with invited teams from ROI and NI/Wales) and are apparently being replaced by… Limerick…


#395

F*ck that, put it up here. Sure it was only a rumour and you’re not saying it’s true!


#396

I assume Bray didn’t make the 5pm deadline. So players in strike and threats if Limerick too.


#397

Bray are striking against Cork next week. Limerick players voting on whether or not to strike tomorrow but the club have said they’ll be paid tomorrow


#398

Limerick also hit with a ban on any new signings between now and the end of the season


#399

What has happened to the League of Ireland?? Nothing actually … business as usual …

Licensing was brought in to prevent exactly this kind of thing … clearly not working …


#400

Would love to hear that rumour as well, someone fill me in please. cheers


#401

So they replace Bray with another that it was confirmed earlier didn’t pay there players…there has to be a movie contract in this somewhere, farcical .

Limerick :rofl: Scotland never seems to do its homework when getting involved with the FAI. 1st Bray then Limerick can the Scots not read?

I was in Glasgow the week after the UEFA delegation came to check out our facilities for the joint bid with Scotland. I can still see the Glasgow guys face when I said “That bid will never happen as you got into bed with a bunch of fuckwits”

I explained the delegation were brought to Croke Park which at that time would not entertain any foreign sports especially not soccer, he was astonished when I said the 2nd venue was an empty field near Blanch (Abbotstown) and the delegation were told it will be a 50k all seater. His face was priceless, looked like I ripped his heart out :joy:
