John Delaney


#1344

Isuue ??

I just wondered what ‘Reinvest Bigly’ meant in the press release. Trying to put some magnitude on ‘Bigly’.

I have no issues with John Delaney… However I have very little interest in soccer. The clubs seem to be the ones that have the issues with the man.

OH and I think the line about the money being for a strategic plan only came out after the clubs kicked up a fuss.


#1345

I believe most LOI clubs are supportive of Mr Delaney


#1346

The only 2 clubs against it were Derry and St Pats. I hope both of them get relegated.


#1347

If you ever went to a LOI game you’d regularly hear anti -Delaney chants from all teams.


#1348

I only go to the big games mate, what Limerick & Cabinteely sing have no interest to me


#1349

Big games? So You’ll travel to Cork and Dundalk but won’t travel to watch rovers? Bizarre…


#1350

So how do you know what most clubs think then?

Derry City are refusing to taking the paltry €5,000 he’s offering them.


#1351

I administer a LOI fans steering group

how much should they get for a strategic plan?


#1352

Fucked if I know. I’m just stating the evidence buddy.

What is it? Foot.ie or some bullshit like that?


#1353

JD is a great friend of the grassroots


#1354

Good one, spambot.


#1355

Doubt they can erect anything on their rented land


#1356

He is . He has a huge power base in junior soccer particularly in rural Ireland .


#1357

Sources tell me the FAI ripped off the Man u fans last night 80 quid a ticket fir a pre season friendly and then made a complete bollox of selling the tickets and left loads unsold because they forgot to put the “buffer zone” tickets up for sale


#1358

:joy:


#1359

My admiration for JD grows .


#1360

Its a real good news bad news story alright


#1361

Could be wrong but pretty sure the FAI don’t organise these games. They are organised third party sports management companies who pay the FAI a fee for use of the stadium. That is prettyc much the done thing for all of these pre season friendlies and a lot of international friendlies these days.


#1362

Correct. Relevant were the name of the company. @gilgamboa needs to stop having post gym smoothies with his ‘sources’


#1363

You aren’t wrong. These companies generally agree exclusive deals for games with the FAI, which was what scuppered to Limerick v Barca friendly a few years ago.
