I wasn’t going down that route. They may be 100% true but he must not be able back them up with evidence yet. It just comes across as very weird the way he wrote it as if he had no part in them. He had his podcast. Word spread from it.

Dan McDonnell had a sneering tweet about Abibi after the FH game. It’s gone further than just reporting with him.

Watching the Waterford v Bohemians game. Waterford look a really poor team. They have nothing going forward. They will struggle to stay up with Longford, Derry.
Not going to be dramatic like some here and say Dundalk will be in the relegation mix.

That's hardly a sneering tweet. If anything he is stating facts.

Dramatic? The club is in disarray on and off the pitch. We have 3 wins in 17 league games. Is that not relegation form? And 2 of those wins were against teams who have since been relegated. This runs deeper than the 4 games this season. Last year can be taken ad a covid ruined season, no fans, new management team, changing of the old guard, not the managers players, put whatever spin you like on it, but this season the buck must stop with the management team. They are here a year at this stage. Equally the issues in oriel do run deeper than FG not having the necessary coaching badges.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

They took over in August, that's not a year. Having seen all the teams in the Division on the LOI watch, there is worse teams then Dundalk and they will get up the table.
Yes it's a bad start,but they started bad under Perth in 2019 also.

They have bad some comical decision but not getting much luck either.

If they lose tonight's they are obviously in a precarious position but if they win, then things can change

Anyone know why the Dundalk v St Pat's topic is locked?

No clean sheets in 7 games is a wee bit grim for us. Even with a dodgy goalkeeper, with that back 4, it should be a lot better.

We probably should be playing friendlies every week. We have a massive squad and had no preseason. Very hard for players to come in cold having played only a few training matches since last year
