You’re a gas man, Kev.
I have no affiliation to Delaney or the FAI. Zero. I’ve never met the chap. I’m not sure I’ve ever met anyone employed by the FAI in any capacity.
Wanting proof for the success of the German coaching model is so idiotic it doesn’t warrant a response.
You want to stream players by divisions but you don’t want those divisions to be organised along local lines. Your proposal makes no sense unfortunately.
I’m not ignoring any dumb practices. I think you’re looking for problems in some of those posts though. They reference enjoyment, facilities etc. I don’t think Finglas United are trying to attract players from all over the city. They are trying to get young kids in Finglas to play football. They guarantee equal playing time in doing so. That doesn’t sound like evil incarnate.
“Stealing state funds under false pretenses” is a wonderful line though! It’s a Facebook post looking for players to join an Under 9s team!! You’re a ticket.
