We badly need a takeover to go through ASAP to let new owners start planning for next year..
I see Andy & Martin were sat together in the stand tonight, although I'm sure that's not unusual for 2 Dundalk fans..

Hopefully Mike but as you said we’ve heard so many rumours before, Vinny’s 2 yr deal, Slogget and a few others signed etc etc but nothing ever seems to come of them

That's a major statement about the takeover. The Connollys haven't been in Oriel since Martin was sacked. Marking their territory? Sending out a message?

I get the impression something is definitely happening on the take over, seems to be almost (dare I say) an air of calmness, with players and the manager talking a little more freely.

Also thinking about recent displays, the second half yesterday and same v Waterford, I think LFS touched on this, it was more like displays when we were into the final stretch of defending a league title in seasons gone by, the football, flow of passing was that good.

If we can get the takeover smoothed out, then keep most of who we want, and do a proper adding to positions to strengthen, show the door to the likes of Abbi, Sonni, Han, Zahibo, we just might surprise a few people next year, not least the two season suffering (bar fai cup win) DFC fans.

Jenny Just, Matt Hulsizer’s wife and peak 6 executive, is personally worth 1.5 billion dollars. That much money would maintain a squad of 20 LOI players for a thousand years.

These people squandered every penny the club earned in the last few years. 10 million euro plus. They should be handing over the keys and apologising. Instead they’re dragging the arse out of the takeover for an amount of money they probably made in the length of time it took me to type this post. Another example of the absolute shits they are. I feel sorry for all the players and staff through all this. They deserve an apology the most.

They are American Bob, they don't do charity, everything has a price in the US and very little is for nothing. Whilst the only thing they did right was ensure players were paid every week and honoured contracts, including during Covid (although we got little return on the latter), I abs agree they should be handing back the keys with an apology.

They wont though.

Their legacy will show they destroyed a football club from within and weakened a side that only for the power of the players hard work and fans drive, could have ended up in the relegation play off, 24 months after walking the league and almost winning the treble.

Whilst Vinny made mistakes, sticking with Abibi and playing Sonni are two, he eventually saw the light and didn't use a single P6 signing apart from Stanton and Ravis, both who should be kept, there is more football in Ravis. However the point being the rubbish signings like Han, Zahibo and the two already mentioned (who if they didn't play v Vitesse we might have won) have all been massive wastes of DFC money and if they had continued to play, we could have ended up in the relegation play off, maybe lost it, and could have ended up in FD for years. We were that close if form had not picked up in early Sept.

P6 are a disgrace.

No argument on any of that Mike. We’ll have PTSD about this.

All Yankee owners with the possible exception of Liverpool are greedy, cut throat Wankers. I am sure we all knew this from day one but we hoped upon hope that they would be different. Blood sucking leeches the lot of them. Hopefully, we will learn from this when it is eventually settled? But rest assured, Dundalk FC and it's very loyal fan base will still be around long after the bad smell of Peak 6 has dissipated. C'mon da Town!
