Who did SK outbid for 2013s unwanted children? Theres more than one way to skin a cat.

Personally think Timmy Clancy would be a very solid appointment. Hes picked up a few unknowns and hes created a decent Drogheda side in a very short space of time.

Hes a punt but surely Higgins was a punt for Derry and O'Donnell for Pats. Whilst both may have been highly regarded within the game, neither had any managerial experience. But they knew the league.

I hope higgins is a success but a long way to go before it can be declared . SOD going great alright so far but Mathews / Kerr etc presence very apparent.
Whoever it is ( if not vp) needs to have managed teams to european places in LOI
Anything else , just a punt , and we've had enough punts around the place recently

I don’t buy all this ‘ we can’t tie lads down without a manger stuff’. Managers are sacked mid season all the time and new ones come in who have to work with the squad in place. The owners would be negligent by not signing the likes of Pat, Leahy ‘Murray, Garts , Dickie, Dummigan etc regardless of the management situation.
Anyway it looks like we’re going to need a whole new MF so there’ll be plenty of work for a new manager.
Remember when out only problem was finding the right No. 8 to partner Shields, Fats and Benson 😫

Liam Buckley is the man for the Dundalk Job with Garts as assistant.

apart from Garts being an all round good guy I'm sure , hard to see why he's qualified to be an assistant manager ' sounds like more Dave Rogers thinking , nice guy, we'd all be delighted for him , but experiance and coaching callibre needed in the back room. Ex players can do the scouting etc while getting badges ' the dressing room ' senior players looking for lots of credit but where was It in the early season
Buckley great shout if he could be tempted ,

Crystal ball time lads .... what is if Andy knows that SK isnt getting a new contract from the FAI? Could SK be tempted back?
Anyone got the lotto numbers, because a few in here seem to know more about budgets etc. than players and owners.

Ok what happened tonight? Duffy didnt even get 1 minute? Disgraceful decision he deserved a send off
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

Rumour at the ground Duffy asked that he not start ... If true , there's was hardly a good time to pop him on if he didn't fancy it.

As of the last 10 mins we have a couple of players and no manager to ask ....

Who knows but vp loves him and you'd expect he would have gotten the same decent treatment chris got on exit if he wanted to play . Either way -great servant
