Interesting. So where do you propose we rent? They should be thankful they're so lucky instead of giving us shít. Fans of those two clubs in particular shitpost us all the time with no sense of irony, simply because they're afraid we'll be able to keep signing the best players for a decade.
So should we, like Shamrock Rovers, squat for 22 years on a magical mystery tour and win one trophy until a local authority somewhere rents us a ground in 2040 10 miles away?
Or should we, like Cork City Version 1, leave Oriel Park for a new ground, stiff the builder, get sued, go bankrupt, go crawling to the FAI to be bailed out, then go bankrupt again, start a new club, and thank our lucky stars the FAI are still willing to rent to us?
Whinging about the ground when there wasn't a red cent available for capital expenditure until 18 months ago, and when there isn't a single team in the country able to do anything without significant help from local authorities or the FAI, is pathetic frankly.
If it's the quality of ground you're after instead of trophies well Cork is probably a bit far, but after that I'm sure Shamrock Rovers would only love another season ticket holder.
I'm not in the business of calling anyone a halfwit or anything so I'll not start now....
However you've clearly not understood the point being made. Throwing juvenile insults to clubs over renting their ground or not is well quite frankly juvenile.
Would I choose either ground over Oriel. Absolutely. As would any sane person. Would I choose one of their grounds over winning trophies. Absolutely not. As I would imagine most other sane people.
Thanks for the courtesy, you seem nice...
I'm not insulting anyone. Lucky them that they have such nice grounds to call home. Maybe you don't understand the point as it was originally made? Fans of those two clubs in particular continually mock us about Oriel when they know we're unable to benefit from other people's investment cash and support the way they were. You've decided that reminding them of the irony is juvenile on my part, I don't really care.
