John Delaney


#1304

It’s great seeing one of our own succeed.


#1305

There’ll be the usual begrudgers, which is sad to see. It seems the old addage is true, a prophet is never accepted in his own land.


#1306

There’s cunts here who’d be happier to see some bollix from England or Moldova get this gig rather than an Irish man.


#1307

Or maybe noone gives a fuck


#1308

I heard earlier that Mr Delaney was successful in his endeavour but I didn’t get details of the vote itself. I’m only seeing now that he sailed through and routed the likes of England’s David Gill. A really impressive display.


#1309

Gill was an outgoing member, i expected him to be re elected
John campaigned earnestly in fairness


#1310

People complaining about Della getting more money make me sick. At least he spends the fucking stuff. He’ll buy a big fuck you house and buy a skip of pints in pubs. It’s the likes of him that keep an economy ticking over spending money earned abroad here.


#1311

John’s promotion has also netted the FAI €900k in a solidarity payment. The man pays for himself, unreal.


#1312

He needs to invest time and money in the LOI -After that I personally couldn’t give a fuck… I think his Irish salary is way out of sync with his peers around Europe who have a lot more to deal with than John does. I wish him the best of luck in his new venture and would love if he moved on to a UEFA role full time and let someone else have a crack at head of FAI.


#1313

You seem mighty bitter if someone else does it.


#1314

Pat Hickey would be an ideal replacement. Transition would be seamless.


#1315

John (not unlike the great CJH and @Tassotti ) has outgrown this little island of ours.


#1316

What’s this now?


#1317

People like John Delaney thrive when they are out of their comfort zone, he needs a bigger Challenge, I’d love to see him become president of UEFA or FIFA


#1318

He’d be brilliant at FIFA


#1319

Dela is one of life’s good guys


#1320

He should buy a set of tracksuit for the girls


#1321

Miaow!


#1322

Could he run for Pope?


#1323

Or NATO
