There's a Rick James quote I'd like to post but I think it would be against the forum guidelines... Hope you're right though Johnny.

The double is very doable indeed. The double of not winning the league and not winning the FAI cup.. stop being clickbait for 5 mins will ya.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

The target should always be the double. It would be a monumental challenge to acheive it though.

Europe is a more realistic target and even it will be a challenge with what appears to be a much stronger league than in recent seasons.

European Super league talk back on the agenda. Talk of 64 teams involved in a 3 tier system. The smaller nations would have more a realistic chance of qualifying for the Europa and Conference league.

Very optimistic there Johnny. Maybe a great owner - well I hope so, but into season 3 of O’Donnell and he hasn’t convinced me that he has the ability we desire as fans.

Fair play to you Louth for Sam , you know where I’m coming from . I managed a team in the DDSL , & I had it instilled in them that they were the best team . They truly believed it & so did I , they did the treble . What’s the point in going out there if you don’t believe & dream . Did anybody believe that we would beat Bate Borisov 3-0 . I would not go in to a dessing room , that doesn’t believe . Imagine having some of the posters on Oriel web anywhere near a dressing room . I know Jim Mc Loughlin would turf them out . I have always been optimistic, & I know for sure you have to instill belief & confidence , have the squad super , super fit . Never ever give up , keep the pedal to the metal , right up to the 97th min. Play the game in a total professional manner , leave Nothing on the pitch . Get no stupid yellow cards , accept the referee & linesmen decisions , walk away . It comes back to you in spades , this is what you drill , & drill & drill in to players 24/7 & of course put the ball in the back of the net , that’s it .

After two years of stupid signings, bizarre team selections and crazy substitutions, Stephen O'Donnell doesn't instil confidence or optimism.
