Talk about sticking your head above the parapet. Much as we appreciate the notification, one or two of us do follow other forms of social media and podcasts(tic).

He is also Chairman of Dundalk FC so his appearance was hardly a secret at our end. I can't imagine myself letting you know there was a match report on the Derry game in the Examiner. If we had a supporters club we could make you an honorary member.

Could you be any more of a condescending prick? I haven't posted here since February. I was listening to the podcast and came to see if there had been any discussion, didn't see any so left a note of it. It only came out last night/this morning.

Jesus Christ oldfogey relax the jets...I'm the first to get prickly when fans of other clubs post something negative on here but to be fair el pietro has done nothing here.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

The sun doesn't agree with everyone.

As for the interview, it is pretty consistent with the message fans have been getting from the new owners. They are very accessible, Mike was very happy to mix with away fans in Tallaght on Friday and answer questions.

I am less interested in the quality of the stadium than I am with maintaining the quality of the football on the pitch. I do expect the indefensible aspects of OP to be addressed (toilets, more sheltered areas) to be addressed. I think anything else will take time.

The key development this week was the signing of Vinny Perth on a three year contract, and the renewal of the contracts of Hoare and McGrath.

I agree with this

I posted a while back and posed the question re fans opinions if we had to move away from OP for a yr or two to get it up to scratch. It’s a diff question because I can’t see any way in which we’d be winning the league playing our home games in the Drogs or Newry.

Also credit where credit is due, el Pietro was doing us a favour. its the trolling gits that come on here every so often that are the waste of time

Wow, personal abuse. Seems some people have found their level.
