With the Ireland job being filled so quickly, the bookies will be flying lots of kites hoping to suck in some silly bets over the coming days.

With Perth unqualified to take the mgrs job, are the bookies going to pay out on him if he ends up as head coach with a DOF who has the badges sitting at the "top"?

Again, I think the bookies are chancing their arm in even offering odds on him getting the "managers" job ...

Just being away on holidays can be enough for the odds to tumble...

John Gill's odds of becoming the next Dundalk manager have gone from 66/1 yesterday to 4/1 today. I spoke to him last night and he said he has been in Fuerteventura for the past 10 days and “hadn’t heard or been in touch with anyone regarding football.”

Blackwell is by all accounts, an absolute bollox. From what you can read of him in a quick Twitter search, I'd hate to see him at the club.

Interesting comments from carsley in reference to his coaching career and in between the lines the absolute digs struck into the lower rib cage at the FAI and structures in place here in Ireland.

This guy would be an absolute visionary coach for Dundalk. Alas, I don't think we would be able to get someone of his calibre

Steve Blackwell would be a step back in time manager wise. Chalk and cheese approach to Kenny. He wouldn't be too long pissin lads off

I heard he started the day yesterday at 33/1 and a couple of small bets went on that brought his odds down. I think the bookies are pulling prices out of the air. I can never remember such betting interest in a LOI manager before so I think if a bookie hears a name mentioned a couple of times they drop their odds, e.g. Jimmy Floyd friggin Hasslebaink!!!

It’s Perth. He’s going to be running the first team. The only question is what way the club intend structuring it.

What about Martin Russell in with VP so. He has the qualifications, experience and plays the game the right way. Really hope that its not just a token appointment (Neville) to meet the FAI criteria. Would far prefer Tom Mohan to Mick Neville, Steve Staunton etc.

If John gill gets the job,I will definitely not be renewing my season ticket. Jesus,we got promoted in kildare because limerick scored in injury time,we'd probably still be in the graveyard only for them!!

For me the club needs to show ambition and drive to get to the next level which is progression once again in Europe. And for me I don't feel this is the correct appointments. Yes it is nice to have a certain familiarity about the backroom staff but that doesn't necessarily mean we will be a success. Nor would hiring an english manager from some backwater club. Felt we needed to look to the continent to progress in Europe. Look at Larnaca's model for progression.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

Have to agree. A Perth/Gill partnership will be underwhelming for most.
It sounds like a management team that will win you promotion from the first division

Is that right? I wasn't sure - I thought he got us promoted because we won the division and had the best record over 36 games??!

Ian foster has a pro license, didn't he serve as assistant to Paul Cook somewhere?

I would be concerned that a European manager would want to bring in his own players. Larnaca might have progressed but only 9 of the squad of 20 that we faced in Oriel were Cypriot.
