The fact that he constantly calls them bitter for no reason and posts a lot about Sligo, kind of makes him seem the bitter one. It seems like he is bitter over something to do with Sligo. 


Its a thick, overused word anyway. It seems prevalent with football fans for some reason.

Great result tonight for Sligo Rovers against Shelbourne at the showgrounds.2 classy finished goals from Danny North & a brilliant individual goal from Pascal Millien.He looks like a good signing.8 points ahead on the table right now.But another clean sheet is great to see & still unbeaten in the league.

pascal was over here with us last year (tampa bay rowdies) and is a very good player. lightning quick, his crossing is a bit erratic, but glad to see him do well at sligo. He's a super guy as well - does a lot of work for the street kids in haiti.

At least you will be sitting down when your saying goodbyeLOL.Is there talk of a roof going over the seats or are they leaving it open?
I heard talk on some kind of stand for theChurch hill rd or carpark end

Cant see many of the Railwayenders sitting on it darman. Id say its more to do with hosting u21 internationals and European capacity. Its going to be uncovered for now but the plan is to roof it.

There is a plan for the Churchill Road end too. The club actually got a price and it was considered for the game against Poltava. The project that would really make the Showgrounds tho is the 2,000 seater stand on the Jinks Ave side. Its been designed for a nice stand with indoor football hall, offices, meeting rooms, gym, etc in the back of it (on the small pitch beside where the astro pitch is now).

I think that 2000 seater stand with gym, meeting hall, etc is a long term plan like in the next 3-5 years if not more.Most Football clubs would have long terms plans.

I bit disapointed to see Sligo Rovers unbeaten run come to an end at the hands of 1-0 to UCD in the UCD Bowl last night, Still it was a great run though.Luckly that none of our closest rivals really took advantage of it.

Maybe the Council might build it for us Wink. How do you think most clubs pay for ground improvements - fundraising and grants. As darman said its a long term plan, no harm in having it in place to be ready if monies come available.

No cup run for Sligo Rovers this year after that 3-1 defeat to Monaghan.Had a great time the past 2 years tho.Its a big finanical loss to the club also.A bit worrying the 2 defeats in a row but hopefully Sligo can pick it up against  Bohemians at dalymount.Won't be an easy game

Not really darman.
 
Of course there will be a loss but the Cup isint the financial windfall people might think. The 'big' money only really comes when you get to the final. If youre lucky enough to win it, most of the money goes on travel, food, hotel, suits etc for 25 - 30 people plus player bonuses for winning it and a homecoming too. And with the FAI w**kers changing it so clubs now get a % of the gate as prize-money who knows what ye might get out of it. Other rounds all ya get is 40% of the gate anyway and with the crowds for cup games low at the moment you wont be rolling in it.
 
The only big money winners in the FAI cup are the FAI w**kers who get 20% of each gate for every game in the competition, for doing feck. All to help them pay for three quarters of a fish bowl in Lansdowne.

Would that not work out better given the fantastic attendences since the cup has moved to Lansdowne ?

I doubt it TBWRA. I cant see the FAI changing it so that the clubs actually get more money. In the short term, maybe, but I think the Aviva novelty and cheaper price tickets has incresed crowds for the last two finals but the novelty will run out and finals in the near future will have smaller crowds. So smaller prize money for clubs.

Team news for Sligo Rovers for the away game with Bohs

Well of course, all your players are out of contract just before the transfer window. Phones at Tallaght haven't stopped ringing with the agents offering your players to us.

FACT! That means you automatically lose the argument...

Its well known you were at least late with this weeks wages. Deny it all you want, but you have no credibility because you never acknowledge the problems at your club

So youve gone from not paying wages to late wages. Which is it. You really are a chore.

UEFA wont allow a club to compete in Europe if they owe a cent. So if were playing the Euro League soon you can breathe a sigh of relief.

For what its worth some Slig is on foot.ie stating Rovers will be taking at least two Sligo players in the window. Fits into the free transfer / owed money / rats off a sinking ship hypothisis.

With respect to Sligo fans and even RTID,these rumours have been doing the rounds for a few weeks now.I myself heard them from a very good source(anyone on here who knows me personally knows who my source usually is), but kept my mouth shut until I heard something more concreteThat said I still havn't seen or heard anything else from an official source but the rumours have been taken to a new level by Sligos own fans on other sites.

I suppose nobody will know for sure until the window-Will be interesting to see if these rumours prove true!

There is absolutely no way the Sligs on here haven't heard the rumours too. Its a bit incredulous that I am accused of all sorts for a story that is everywhere.

My point has nothing to do with the transfer rumours and you damn well know it.

You were pushing your anti Sligo Rovers bull agenda again (not paying wages, monies owed, etc, crap). I sent ya two PM's telling you how it couldnt be true and asked you a very simple question.
 
You just ignored my points and came back on to the public forum here continuing your bullsh*t rant. The fact you even ignored a post where someone calls you a cu.nt, proves you know nothing and are infact a cu.nt.

On the Davoren rumour to Shams. Its his fourth season I think with us. And this by far his poorest and in-effective. To put in to perspective - Id take a chance on Powell back to us if they wanted to swap.

You just ignored my points and came back on to the public forum here continuing your bullsh*t rant. The fact you even ignored a post where someone calls you a cu.nt, proves you know nothing and are infact a cu.nt.
 

This was established a long time ago.

Heard a Rumor the Sligo manager wants to get rid of about 5-6 players in transfer window, as he wants to free up funds to bring in 4-5 UK based players

Can any Sligo fans confirm?

Put it this way trainee, he wants to put his stamp on this team/ squad. And publically said that some players think they have a right to play for the club and that they are wrong. I have to say he is very professional and not afraid to step on a few toes by the sounds of him. His preference is not to get in foregin players but more so to get in Irish based players that might have been released by foregin clubs and are looking for a new start. 3 such players were in a friendly game last week.

Sligo Rovers have announced the signings of Jeff Henderson and Seamus Conneely until the end of the season.

Did Conneely ever play centre back for ye tribal or was it always full back?
 
There is money left in the budget if Ian wants more players but he seems happier working with a smaller squad.

He started off as a full back but moved into both centre back and the centre of midfield. When he played for the Irish U21's he played in both centre back and midfield.

Ya its the Railway End tribal. THere is a long term plan to develop the other end Gerk to include a stand, bar, etc. There is also plans to replace the Jinks Ave stand too (I seen those drawings) it will have a 1,800 stand, meeting rooms, gym and Futsal Hall at the back of the stand. Both are long finger stuff at this stage and wont be done for a long while. The astro pitch is to be relayed to bring it up to a higher standard and that should happen soon.
 
Havent heard a definite figure yet moose but its been financed by Sponors, business people and monies that will come from Europe and europe ticket sales this year and next. Nearly 2,000 europe tickets sold already @ €25 each (expensive I know but thats the cost you pay and Rovers fans realise this). Tickets for the new stand cant go on sale until its fully finished, UEFA thingy I think.
 
Annual draw to take place tomorrow and it's on course to reach €45,000. I went door to door with them and at €10 a ticket you'd think it would be a hard sell, but quite the opposite.
 
Im always proud to be a Sligo Rovers fan but even more so at the moment.

Ya permanent structure Tom. Foundations, blockwork, pre-cast slabs. Plan is to roof it but not just yet. Toilets to go at each end of it too.

Annual draw brought in €54,000 of clear profit. I dont think there is many clubs in the country that could bring that kind of cash over a few weeks. Well done to all concerned, a lot of leg work from a lot of people went in to make it a success.

If I was a Sligo fan I would have liked a modern terrace, similar to the ones they in Germany, to have been put in the centre of that stand. Would have made a lovely section for FR08, especially once it got roofed.

Sligo defiantly on the up. And from what I can see ye are doing it the right way. Nice to see a club outside Dublin at the top. Ye are doing extremely well for a club in a town of 20k people.
