Bray not paid their players by the deadline, strike to follow.

Limerick not paid their players again, balloting for strike tomorrow.

Could have a situation next weekend where one in five teams are on strike and two out of five games won't be going ahead. (Bray v Cork & Limerick v Waterford)

Completely farcical and makes a mockery of the league, the FAI and the licensing.

Hard to see what they can do to sanction us, banning the Mulvey and O'Connor's from having anything to do with LOI would be a good start.

To add to the Bray players potentially going on strike it now appears the players from Limerick will also be going on strike.

What an absolute mess the league is in. The licensing shown up for the farce it is.

If the FAI hand out a license to the club it should be the equivalent of them acting as guarantors should the club renage on any of the terms that meant the club got the license in the first place.

Until a system like that is in place then the FAI will continue to hand out a license to any club that come looking for one and have notions of throwing money around and not be caught out. 
If the FAI start acting as guarantors  only then will we see the true financial reflections of clubs as the FAI will immediately get strict on the licensing system.

As for the sanctions, what sanctions was there really to impose?

1) Fine them money, sure the club has no money.
2) Dock them points, sure the club's finishing last anyway and probably have no players to fulfil a fixture anyway.
3) Throw them out of the league, club will probably fold anyway in the next couple of weeks.

The only way the FAI will consider taking this seriously will be if every club goes on the picket

Would be great to see, but would the top four clubs be up for it. FAI need the national league so the national team can compete in competitions, two clubs striking doesn't bother them because they'll just replace them but if all clubs strike and threaten to not compete the FAI will have to actually take notice and do something.

Bray are an upgraded LSL club to facilitate the LOI expansion to a 2 tier league in 1985. Eventually most of those teams fall by the wayside. Bray don't have the fan base to support the running of a LOI top tier team in 2018. Limericks on the other hand do have a population to support a top division club. Limerick have always been susceptible to fans disappearing when results go awry. It's really up to the people of  Limerick to decide if they want a club or not and are prepared to turn up to games. There are great lads on here who support both teams and i feel some sympathy for them.

Surprised to hear that about Limerick. They were getting big crowds at the start of the season , is that not the case now or are they simply spending above their means or the purse strings have been cut ? Sad news for the league and the image of Irish football.

Limerick will always be a mid first Divison team at best without investment, unless the club has investment they'll never be a top Divison team. Junior football is king in Limerick and there's big money floating about the junior game. If the plans of going part time that were discussed happens and they only cover players expenses then local junior clubs will be out bidding them for local talent in the mid west. 

As one lad said to me whose been going to games since the early 80s, "If Limerick become a glorified junior team why would anyone pay  €15 to watch them when they can go down the road to their local club and watch the same players for free now".

Apart from Bohs (opening game), Cork and Rovers no game has broken 1,000 fans and the Cork and Rovers game only broke the 1,000 mark because of away fans. Some fans didnt bother this year because of off the field sh*t and funds have dried up as the owner wants out (health problems and his family more or less making him retire imo as his own company was put into voluntary liquidation back in May) and from constantly over spending as he's sunk over €6 million into Limerick since 2010 so that bubble was always gonna burst without being top four.

Think the 8-0 and 6-0 batterings from Dundalk and Derry killed off any casual support and the off the field stuff with the social media lad who works with the club, the people who own the markets field and few volunteers had falling out with the club just meant it's been a sh*t show even before the sh*t really hit the fan.

Every club who doesn't live within their means  is at risk  Its Limerick and Bray now it could be Shamrock and Dundalk soon, that would be a much bigger threat to the league. We need a 50+1 German style rule.

Take over the club themselves/ rule the Mulvey's unfit to run the club and suspend them - they're the big issue here.

His stuttering, mumbling interview with the excellent Joanne Cantwell was dreadfully damning, pass-the-buck stuff.
 
Feel very angry for the players involved and for the fans whose money tried to sustain the clubs they support and the volunteers who give time and their own money and all.
 
Shamblolic stuff and the letter I seen on Twitter from last year signed by Mulvey about his plans for the Carlisle Grounds is desperate stuff. Angry

And will they take over Limerick too? And what happens if Athlone go to the wall next month or Sligo, will they take over all four clubs? The LOI is a basket case and there's not much you can do to punish clubs that literally have nothing whether, clubs living week to week more or less. Bray will probably go bust (imo it's what the owners probably want so they can do a deal with the council for the land) and doubt there owners will be back ever again and Limerick will be amateur next year in the style of Wexford.

You'd hope that with the talks of a new company being created to run the league so it's not being done fully by the FAI that people are in the background now trying to put stuff into place to prevent stuff like this from happening again or if it does happen again putting penalties in place for clubs like any club that fails to pay its players will only be granted a licence the following season on amateur terms. That's about the only punishment imo because in a league with no money and so few clubs that you can't afford to lose anyone there's not much punishments to dish out.

We'll they could take them over/render them unfit and have the precious people who ran the club back in there. These are the same people who caused trouble at Pats 

Better to target the people than the club.

With Cork playing in Warsaw tonight it's hard not to look on and be extremely jealous.
 
There is obviously many factors at play but there should be no reason at all we couldn't run a club like Cork do and be able to compete in the top half of the league if we got our sh*t together. Football is huge in Limerick and a successful team will bring that bandwagon in and we could hopefully convert them to long term fans.
 
But the way this season has gone I don't know what to think anymore. One disappointment after another. Even if we do manage to stay up in the relegation playoff, we wont get a licence for next year and back to the first division again.

Edit: So basically FAI announced a fund was to be set up to the tune of 300k split between themselves and the PFAI, without even consulting the PFAI LOL

It would be a last resort for a club and they would face sanctions if they apply for it which have yet be decided . Its some safety for the players at least. But how about the FAI properly regulate the league when firing out licences ? The FAI are proposing a pot of 300000 euros which the PFAI will have to come up with half of if it agrees. Count out to a nice bita money like.

So it's never gonna happen. FAI only proposed this because they know the PFAI haven't got that kinda cash and it's just a dick measuring contest with the FAI saying put up or shut up to the PFAI while treating the league as the unwanted redheaded step child that they see it as.

Is there any possibility the clubs could break away from the FAI?

And do what? The FAI would probably just nominate the Leinster Senior league as the new national league to get around the rule of international teams needing a national league.

There's talks of a new company being set up to run the league, a way to take 100% control away from the FAI and get the clubs more involved so hopefully something positive comes from that and it's not just the FAI creating a "company" to stick FAI men into and claim it's "independent" like the whole licence farce.

How the Icelandic FA's approach to their domestic league differs from ours.

I don't know the numbers but I'd the number of 14/15/16 year old lads travelling back and forth to England for trails and then signing is possibly zero so in Iceland they've got develop their own players and hope the best 18/19 year olds get picked up by European clubs and then those that don't leave at 18/19 get to develop in iceland and hopefully get picked up at 21/22.

Here the FAI just rely on English clubs because you've got vast amounts of Irish players leaving as teenagers that surely one or two might make it or a lad who qualifies for Ireland chooses us because he's not good enough for England.

Belgium is a country that is half the size of Ireland but has nearly 3 times the population and the work they do at underage to make sure players don't slip through the cracks puts Ireland to shame. At every age group they have an A and B team, where the best of the best play for the A team but only players born in the last couple of months in the year can play for the B team as they've noticed that most players born towards the end of the year don't develop as fast as those born in January or February so have a team just for late developers.

Studying and then at least attempting to implement the practices that have been shown to have borne fruit in other small footballing nations would appear to be a no-brainer.

Sadlier and Kenny think we should get the government involved.
