It was the night we beat Derry on penalties in the EA Sports Cup Final in Derry. Fats was his way back down the steps and this Derry fan was giving it large (not a steward in sight) and obviously crossed the line. Fats stopped to confront him but was dragged away by the rest of the players.

I suppose my point is you only have to be a local playing for another club to be absolutely hated up there. Indeed I would fear that he will be in for a lot more of the same if he doesn't produce to the same level as he did with us. He is also - by his own admission - injury prone, in itself enough to turn fans against you. Which could explain why Higgins is allegedly looking at Patching as a second #10.

Ah yes remember that incident now. Always one idiot in every set of supporters. I wish fats and duffy well in their future careers.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

An absolute embarrassment last night.

Its not that difficult a job, call out the starting elevens, notices and play a few pop songs. No need to try to be edgy or funny.

Bircham signed a new.2 year deal a few months after taking over. He done a decent job initially and brought in Junior from Charlton who was really good.
He's good friends with Jim Magilton, similar type of personality which probaly isn't what is needed at Dundalk

Bircham was sacked because he played a player with Covid silly boy.

He will do well here then, have you all forgotten how we played our best player in a meaningless league game, he got a yellow and it cost us the cup?

Ps. From the same place as my knowledge of Magilton, Bircham is a 24 carat wanker. Our new owners will know this and won't touch him.
