I see the club Lotto being re-launched. It would be a good idea to ring-fence the profits of this (however small) for ground improvements - even if it just meant cleaner toilets, and cosmetic items.

Maybe a car draw in association with Blackstone motors could also raise funds for the ground.

I dont think many fans will be interested in contributing to the club if its going to waste on another kid for the squad from the university of Mississippi badlands

I’d say McCabes wouldn’t be happy with Blackstone being involved 😛

Sorry thought Blackstone were still sponsors.

Minimum spend in the Lotto is €10 a week. (either 5 weeks of a one line draw or 5 lines in one week)

Just listened to the Pressbox podcast.

Gutted.

Nobody can defend Peak6 anymore.

Fillipo is Bill's guy, he appointed him and has faith in him for some misguided reason. I'd like to know how Magilton and McDonnell are undermining him but couldn't imagine either sitting on their hands watching the dross that is being served up.

The appointment of Magilton and O'Donnell filled me with hope, if they are the next heads on the block I would really fear for our future.

Now all we need is for the 3 lads to get sacked, Get McDonnell and Gartland in as No.1 and 2. McDonnell for the badges and Gartland for the philosophy from playing under Kenny and lets get back to winning ways.


One can hope....

Bleak 6 couldnt be more appropriate. After listening to the Press Box podcast, I am seriously worried about were we are going to end up as long as Bill is in charge.
In years to come, we will look back at this year as a what might have been moment. A group of mostly really talented players not being used to their full strengths and an inept manager who can do no wrong in the chairman's eyes.

All it would take to save this season and many more seasons to come is a decent manager and a chairman who doesn't interfere. It's not much to ask for is it?

Just got around listening to James Rogers on the Press Box podcast, depressing stuff altogether. It's just unfathomable that people are still defending Bill Hulsizer.

The only positive is the link up with local businesses being generated as we'll need them when we're starting again in the first division as Dundalk Town FC

I wonder would Vinny Perth throw his name in for the Derry City job if it became available. They are not going great, but things can change, a nice redeveloped ground. It's a fairly young Squad, losing the likes of Conor McCormack was a blow to them.

They played some good football against Shamrock Rovers, but collapsed once Rovers scored. Patching was decent.

Why single out McDonnell? He's head of youth development which hasn't even started yet due to covid ..

Rogers mentioning the rumours going around. I thought most of them came from his podcast as I only heard them here after his podcast was released.

Btw, I agree. If it is a loss tomorrow then it has to be goodbye. I was on for giving the management team a chance this season, but they wasted it and time has run out.
