Also, when we hear today, "we're 55m in debt", this time last year anyone reading the report knew we were 22m in debt, when we really were 57m in debt, and are now 55m in debt, so no financial damage done in the past 12 months.

I thought we were on sound financial footing when we could now pay the wages of the management team on our own after DOB pulled out?

That's what I was led to believe

Apparently DOB's fortunes have taken a turn for the worse, I heard it on Eamonn Dunphy's podcast. 

He won't be subsidising any manager wages in future, I can tell ye that.

Eh uefa have funded them upward 15m this year alone, so I'd imagine plenty of financial damage.

Out of interest who in Class of 88 was at the party?  I didn't make the invite list and none of the committee were there.  

I'm only going by social media as a well known fan was there not that there is anything wrong in attending a birthday party.   

I'm assuming you just missed the cut as well.  Big smileBig smileBig smile

Nobody in the FAI seems to think it's strange that his pay off was worth more than the league and cup champions' prize money.

She got a 69 earlier


























Then realised it was only 55 million they owed. Didn't add her figures correctly.

The accounts show the average salaries were 66k in 2018.
We are told that a substantial number of admin staff are on relatively low salaries so there must a good few high earners (apart from Delaney himself).
One wonders what a certain former failed international under-age "manager" is receiving in the cushy number set up for him.

Hard not to come to the conclusion the whole thing needs to be wrapped up. Sport Ireland should disband the current FAI and leave the current board there as a kind of a shadow operation to see out the playoffs and/or Euros, but make it clear to all sponsors/affiliates/UEFA that this is a wind down operation and what remains is just to see out those campaigns and those of the various Irish representative teams. Government steps in & funds them separately, like they seem to have done with the womens team. 

If UEFA get on board, great, if they don't fcuk them. Announce new FAI under new name, sell the stadium back to the IRFU for whatever they can get, invite applications for a slimmed down board, only those with professional business related qualifications that never had anything to do with JD's operation need apply. 

Announce this as the new governing body, then announce new structure for all affiliated leagues, councils and representatives-  again, slimmed down, and again, recommend that only those with suitable qualifications will qualify for places on councils. The likes of 'hear no evil, see no evil' Mr Earley should also be allowed apply, but there should be a rule that says the new main board can reject applicants/representatives if deemed unsuitable by new board. So if the schoolboys sector see fit to nominate him again, or the lads in Kerry district league elect their hero, the board can say 'No thanks, now fcuk off and elect someone else, otherwise no funding for a decade' They'd get the message fairly quick, money talks. 

I think its gone well beyond desires to implement change, to a stage where change must be forced, whatever the short term cost. Even the short term cost is unlikely to reach €55 million. And that's only the 2018 accounts remember, the 2019 accounts are yet to come. Probably nothing too mad in them other than some expensive away trips and another overpaid manager, but only the very brave would predict a profitable year. 

Disband or at least disaffiliate all SCs from anything to do with the new FAI. I'd accept they didn't cause the problem, but Jesus some of the social media posts today are sickening in their hypocrisy. Expressing sympathy for the ordinary FAI staff (fair enough in itself, I think we all feel the same) but zero acknowledgement of the fact they wouldn't raise even the mildest of criticism of the great leader when he was supplying them with the all important match tickets, access to the players lounge, invites to the AGM, providing selfie opportunities with players, invites to the Euro draw etc. Load of absolute bollix. 

55 million bonus points for the first SC to publically admit their actions in tacitly supporting the Delaney regime were completely self serving.

The way the domestic game was being mismanaged has been clear for years. Airtricity are jumping on the bandwagon here to pull out at this time.

Having supported our team for around 50 years I’ve seen some bad times with the FAI but the current mess reaches a new low.
Desie is right, we need to start again. Reform will not happen quickly enough with guys like Early still on the board or anyone who had any connection with the FAI at board of council level previously.

Despite being a ST holder and regular away traveler my interest in the rest of this euro campaign is zero.

I take your point but I think we have distinguish between our team and the incompetent clowns who administer football. I will never stop supporting the lads who wear the shirt. They are us and we are them. That includes  buying a ST ( not as a support for the FAI but as a saving on the cost of attending every game, which we do anyway). 

As for the FAI, the board and the Council have betrayed Irish football. Nobody who sat on the discredited board should ever be involved again. Either they went along with this sh1t or were too stupid (there is some evidence of this) to see what was going on.
