Mata with 2 tonight so far. A good coup for Sligo to get him back, albeit only until the summer. But there is 22 league games before the summer break.

Heard he was in Switzerland during the week ... another former Dundalk manager and owners group have links to a club there.
Correct, Fillippo is director at Yverdon in Swiss Premier League, they're ahead of Basel at the moment in the table!
You sure that is the same Fillippo that had no experience when he was appointed to DFC and the same qualifications as Vinny Perth when he was appointed??...... a bit like BA coming from Boston Bolts, Fillippo came from a bigger and more professional setup than Dundalk FC if you look at figures and where players ended up. He was also involved in a Portuguese second division team in a consulting / advising role which he never really spoke about when he was appointed to the job with us.
Pro Licence is a load of bollocks to be fair when you see some of the coaches who actually have one..

And not a weak team starting tonight. Keogh and Mulligan the only players who didn't feature in the League.

I don't see the point in giving him another 2 or 3 games, there's no results coming. They're building nothing despite his ramblings to local journalists. If he wasn't an ex player he'd have been gone after Galway last year.
He's made plenty from dundalk including being the main man in negotiating very substantial bonuses that hadn't been contractually agreed for the squad after the Bate game.
If he had any respect for the club he'd walk but he won't do that.

Speaking of ramblings, look at this tripe he fed local media: https://www.dundalkdemocrat.ie/news/spo ... ponse.html

Perhaps the most damning criticism of SOD, people pining for Filippo. What's Jim Magilton up to?
