I can't wait to hear the FAI try to justify this one! There will be absolute mayhem if this goes through.

Money is power and Kevins have an abundance of money, no doubt some underhand dealing going on again, kevins single handedly killed schoolboy football a long time ago

I thought that the reason for the underage LOI was to provide a pathway to the senior team? Where are the Kevins players gonna go after U15? Madness from the FAI.

This is the thing you see.
 
SKB players will then go across the water like they do now, for a small consideration  of course Wink
 
SKB can still host their u13 Academy Cup against the cream of Europe every Easter.
 
Status quo maintained, everyone's a winner Rodders.

So the FAI absolutely bottle the big decision at the first sight of trouble. This makes a mockery of the underage LOI plans.

I've two kids playing at St. Kevins and haven't a bad word to say about them. People complain about them that they're all about the money etc. and this and that but the coaching, facilities and opportunities the kids get is second to none. The kids are also emersed in a level of professionalism that helps prepare them if they pursue a professional career in football.

That's grand for Kevins and the kids there if they are good enough. However, SKB are going against the plan for the development of the Irish game. We have a dearth of young talent coming through and the underage LOI structure has been put in place to try and address that. SKB are taking the piss out of it and now can continue to punt young lads to Stevenage and Fleetwood for a few bob to the detriment of the rest of Irish football. 


Case in point 


Finally when it looked like something good was happening at underage level, it has been completely undermined.

They're not the only ones. The Summer Soccer was always going to be the big one in the Development Plan. Kildare were due to change from this month and a week before the season was to start it was pulled. They're reverting to the standard season commencing in August as they normally would. Looks like that part of it will never get off the ground.
There are leagues not even implementing the first few recommended steps yet
Some people just deserve a slap

Imagine we had a football governing body who had a bit of bollox and actually enforced their plans. 
You can be sure if there supporters or reporters were giving the main men in the FAI grief then they would be put in their place as we have seen in the past. 
I wonder why they can't make the clubs and the leagues tow the line in the same manner? (That was a rhetorical question by the way)

I've no issue with SKB at all and have attended two of the last 3 Academy Cups.
 
But to say that other clubs don't have the same coaching, facilities and opportunities is wrong.
There is also a 'level of professionalism' at a lot of clubs even those outside the elite formally so-called 'Big 6'.
 
SKB still use two council pitches and share an astro with a school.
 
This is the FAI's cock up not SKB's.

Spot on from MCH and GMcK. You'd swear SKB were the only show in town when it comes to development of elite players. They shouted loudest and with the most consistency against this and the spineless t*ssers in the FAI folded when they just needed to show a tiny bit of f*cking backbone - it wouldn't have taken much fortitude for the FAI to simply inform SKB that all schoolboy clubs must get on board with the structures laid out in the development plan. Ah well, at least we can look forward to a full and frank discussion (awkward questions and dissenting voices welcome as always) on the subject at the annual North Korea themed AGM next month .

I believe one of those lads has been let go at the end of the season there.
