Steve Staunton in the running for the Dundalk job apparently


#708

Must be a slow day in the tabloids. I suppose if Dundalk want to dismantle something that’s been successful Stan is your man. I mean who dreams up these stuff.


#709

Saying that, there really isn’t an obvious experienced candidate for the job. Doolin is probably the most high profile available name but I wouldn’t see his drill sergeant routine going down well with that group of players. They may end up taking a punt on a recently retired player that’s got the requisite UEFA badges.


#710

Some players want vinny Perth to step in. Makes sense , he knows the players and set up. Less risky than an outside appointment.
Nb- I had a brief spell as a player under Doolin s uncle . Jaysus joe as he was well known.


#711

In some ways. But we’ve seen umpteen lads at all levels of football that can’t make that step up from coach to manager, it’s a very different role.


#712

jimmy Floyd hasslebank in the running for Dundalk job now


#713

Would know Doolin well as he’s a neighbour of my Ma but don’t think he’s been involved in a while with a team and I think he’s back working 9-5 after taking a long career break.


#714

Ballybrack FC faking a player death to get a game called off. That is just low.

#731

He was a dead ball specialist?


#732

Absolutely bizarre. They’ve been thrown out of the league I believe


#733

The player was interviewed on Sean o rourke this morning. It’s like something out of fr ted.


#734

Is there anything to be said for saying another mass?


#735

By the sounds of it he nearly had one said for him.


#736

Made Sky Sports News too!


#737

Did he play on that over 75 team with Father Jack?


#738

Story gone Worldwide now , sports illustrated, ny times , Marca have picked up on it. Jaysus you can get away with nothing now.


#739

Trust the Waterford Whispers lads to get in on the act!

Jack Byrne signs for Rovers. Was meant to be the next big thing, his stock has fallen a lot. Discipline meant to be an issue there too.
