I seen that about Klinsmann on that All Things LOI account. The admin is an awful dose and seems to be a rovers supporter on the wind up.

Players would be doing Yoga at 7am down the Navy Bank, would be training with EMS kits on in Clancy Park and would have to inform the group every lunchtime (vegan/carb free), after their alcohol tests, if they did the naughty the evening before or on the morning of training. No need to worry, wont be Klinsi, still being paid €2 million plus per season by Lars Windhorst for the job he lost (manager, consultant to and member of supervisory board) at Hertha Berlin.

Might be something to the link ,as he lives in the States and managed the USA before. I don't see what would appeal him to work in LOI, his last job was in the Bundesliga 2 years ago.

I don't think Robbie Keane would be the answer. Maybe someone like Paul Lambert, currently without a club worth trying.

Klinsmann is a non runner...someone taking the piss. He is contracted to the investors of Hertha Berlin until 2023 or 2024. He is currently on gardening leave and picking up a nice sum for doing little or nothing. Like the Lambert, however I think he would be out of of salary range.

Cant believe Robbie Keane's name is coming up again, didn't he turn us down after Perth went?

Surely he’d be working remotely as is precedent within the club. The top man Bill works from home. 😂

Especially as he might actually have to work for his money!!
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

A lot of this re rumours is more the case of so much being closed currently, oriel, pubs etc, lack of interaction face to face, so people just forwarding rubbish on by whattsapp, another I heard is Gary Monk.........Beam me up scotty !

Of more immediate concern is getting rid of the current mgt team. I've no idea who the new guy will be but I always thought, someone with L1 UK experience would fit the bill, who is out of work, must be some around, come over here, big club, good profile (owners to behave), then go back 2-3 years later if that suited, or stay longer and do more, everyone winners, but you would like the move would be over here for short time, then head back, either way whoever it is, we need a solid man in, with experience.

Please not Lambert or Monk, pair of chancers. Someone like Paul Cook would have been ideal. He knows the league, was great at Sligo and has done a decent job wherever he has been. He doesn't take any shit from anyone either.

Paul Cook , you’re having a laugh pal. As much chance of him coming back to the LOI as there is of Flores playing a full season

A manager like Cook would have been ideal, but he's progressing well his career. At Ipswich now.
Lambert while he has gone through a few clubs, started his management career well. A good playing career too. A chance to rebuild his career in Ireland ,and a chance at Europe wouldn't be a bad option.

But he's likely out of the salary bracket.

Klinnsman ,,,lambert etc .do people honestly think that these people would even consider LOI,,never mind sitting in the dugout in Oriel park .The rumour I think is more realistic is David Jefferies .

No but it’s a bit of craic thinking that some enjoy posts made up stuff hoping that others believe it.
