Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Jesus lads what a trip, fully deserved to go through but made hard work of it, penalty shoot out are horrendous, especially the other night as it was a bit of a rollercoaster, not something i'd like to go through again!

Can't see too many going to Baku, will be a tough game but at least they won't be sitting in the whole night so might create a few chances, just have to keep them out at the other end.

Do would that Dundalk did to put themselves in the position they are in now. People seem to forget that we came from nothing to win the league in 2014 and 2 years later we were in the EL group stages without any significant investment

@DanielSextonIRL
1/x After a number of recent comments doing numbers from people engaging mostly in bad faith, I’m gonna go on a rant about Dundalk, Oriel Park, and the League. Mute this thread if you don’t care! #cmonthetown.

2/x There’s no money in League of Ireland. Clubs have lead a hand-to-mouth existence since 1921. Since the creation of two Divisions in 1985, Home Farm, Dublin City, Fingal, Galway, Kilkenny, Kildare, Monaghan, Newcastlewest, St Francis, St James’s Gate have all left LOI.

3/x Cork, Shamrock Rovers and Drogheda have gone into administration. Cork (twice) and Derry have been liquidated. Shelbourne and Longford have been punished for financial irregularities. Limerick lost its licence. Many of the rest, including Dundalk, have needed rescuing.

4/x Unlike most of Europe, there’s been no development historically of municipal soccer or multi-sport stadiums in Ireland by central or local government. The grant system results in piecemeal improvements at best. Tallaght, funded by SDCC, stands out as an exception.

5/x Clubs that struggle to stay solvent are in zero position to fund capital development. Cork’s attempt to move to Bishopstown ended in a winding-up order in the High Court over unpaid contractors. They rent Turners Cross, which was developed entirely at other’s expense.

6/x Shamrock Rovers were homeless for 22 years, and failed to build a ground in Tallaght for 10 years. After Rovers stiffed their creditors to the tune of about €2.5 million, the Council took Tallaght over and built it for them, paying €13 million to date. Is that the model?

7/x Dundalk made a decision in the ‘30s to move to Oriel. In ‘66/67 the club developed the ground at its own expense and it nearly bankrupted them. Since then the cost of stadium development has accelerated far beyond the ability of *any* League club to afford it. 8/x So what’s the argument from the people complaining about Oriel? Where’s the money supposed to come from? With Dundalk it seems to be that the club should literally be the only one in Ireland to take on a massive capital debt to fund a new stadium.

8/x So what’s the argument from the people complaining about Oriel? Where’s the money supposed to come from? With Dundalk it seems to be that the club should literally be the only one in Ireland to take on a massive capital debt to fund a new stadium.

9/x That’s where the bad faith starts. When a supporter of a rent-a-pitch club complains about Oriel, they’re bitter about Dundalk’s rags to riches story and want Dundalk dragged down, despite the fact that by renting and having no capital debt *their* club has an advantage.

10/x Should Dundalk have sunk the Euro prize money into the ground? Not at the expense of the team, no. Certainly not for a few dozen away fans with zero self-awareness who’d just find something else to bitch about.

11/x “The American owners should do it”. Why should they? They’re business people, not philanthropists. Why should they see most of their potential rivals benefit from local authority or FAI funding while they’re expected to spend money that won’t see an ROI for 20 years?

12/x But is Oriel fit for purpose? No, of course not. Could something be done? Absolutely. Is there any excuse for the ground not being clean or the Town End being a mess? Or the wasted land where the away end is? No. And the close season was wasted.

13/x Fixing Oriel isn’t as complicated as is claimed. The 3 non-stand sides of the current footprint of the ground could fit 4,000 covered seats. At a minimum of €1,000 per seat it would need 4 million. If the average attendance went up by 1,000 the ROI would be 14 years.

14/x But it needs proactive support from Louth CoCo and the FAI and there’s zero sign of that happening. The previous owner built the YDC and the CoCo’s 430k ‘development levies’ nearly killed the club. Without support all we’ll get is a mishmash of slight improvements.

15/15 This Dundalk team deserves all the spectators it can get. Fact is barely 2,000 people have unrestricted views. The owners and the council should do the right thing, not because of Twitter bitching, but because it’s in the interest of their investment. Fin #cmonthetown

P.P.S. This thread is as much for your man in the @DundalkDemocrat as assorted twitter spoofers. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.



2 in a row and we won it in Tallaght

APOEL 🇨🇾 v Sutjeska 🇲🇪 V Dundalk (or Qarabag)

Probably one of the better ties we could have got should we progress, but we seen what happened in Cyprus last year

If you win that is it the group stages or is there another round?

Have Dundalk absolutely no chance against Qarabag or just very unlikely they'lll get through? 

If they avoid conceding an away goal, it would give them some chance going into the second leg.

Depends what bookies you ask.

Paddy Power have us 6/4 to qualify
Bet 365 have us 10/3

Pity Dundalk didn't hold on for the draw. 

Hit the bar towards the end but Slovan were much the better side especially in the second half.

Still in it but can't see them not conceding an away goal at home.

I dont think they were much better. Dundalk dominated a lot of the game and were unlucky a few tims. That bratislava team is very average. If they go at them in tallaght they cud pull it back. I think Hoban isnt good enough to really trouble better defences in europe. Needed to be subbed early in the 2nd half IMO. Just lack that real bit of quality up top to kick on. I think sean murray looked really good until he was taken off. McGrath also very good. Its not over.
