We need more than a FastFix!! Lets hope they can continue where they left off and get support from local government and company sponsorship. Time for people to stand up and support this.

What's your excuse?

Haven’t seen our accounts for this year yet?

Regardless, if anything amiss, it’d be misguided supporters getting ahead of themselves, heart in right place, etc (which wouldn’t be right btw) - but slot better than foreign owners looking to make a quick buck

More details on the takeover:
https://www.independent.ie/sport/soccer ... 39595.html
The new team will move quickly to assess the situation and the return of Connolly's brother Martin - the former chief operating officer who was amongst those to be sidelined by the US regime - is on the cards.

Uncertainty hangs over the position of manager Perth with all options being considered. Magilton's role is also up in the air.

Peak6 are set to leave a figure of around €250,000 in the bank and a key aspect of talks was the extent to which they were willing to tie up some loose ends.

The local group were unwilling to spend their money on gaining control because they feel the priority should be diverting resources towards the rebuilding project made necessary by mistakes made under the controversial departing regime.

Imagine after 4 years buying the club back for €1. My God.

On paper it looks a great partnership. Now let's give them time to rebuild the club, not just the squad, and support them anyway we can.

I was generally in favour of the Peak6 takeover because I believed in their next level talk. I believed that they believed in us. I think it’s a bit of a pity for us and the league that outside investment with that financial power has failed so badly so quickly. I still can’t understand how they managed to mess it up so much in the last 15 months. But mess up they did and they had to go so hopefully this news means a corner turned. Best of luck to the new owners, I hope people will be patient because it sounds like there’s a big clean up job needed.

Must be a relief Pepsi, they are finally gone and you can admit that they were a shambles and pulled the wool over your eyes. :)

What was the moment people realised Peak6 had screwed it all up and there was no going back? Loads of possibilities but for me it was the Celtic friendly, being prepared to toss a league match and trying to get the squad to quarantine in the YDC for a fortnight.

Want to echo what’s above, Andy is going to need time and people’s patience. Huge job ahead.

I think when the rumours emerged of wanting Gary Rogers to take corners went to print in National papers alarm bells were ringing. I have to hold my hands up in some respects. I so desperately wanted to believe that they were going to take us to the next level. I think the whole appointment and handling of the Filippo license sums up their tenure.
