Thank you for that.

It's just a shame that so many people on this forum choose to live in the past.

You know, the ones who don't actually go to games.

I wonder what fringe benefits the IFA are thinking of getting with this potential acquisition.

"Fringe Benefits" indeed...Wacko

People with your mindset spent years lambasting the IFA for not employing/selecting/developiing people from the Catholic/Nationalist community, persisting even long after such a claim had lost all credibility in the eyes of anyone who viewed the evidence objectively.

And now that not even you can keep it up, you're so desperate to have a pop at "Themmuns" that you take a new tack i.e. that the IFA is somehow deviously and nefariously trying to "coerce" or "pressure" [your terms] youngsters against their will, even when at the expense of their Protestant/Unionist counterparts.

That the people at the IFA simply don't give a stuff about any of this, just whether you can kick a ball straight, is clearly beyond your own, bigoted outlook.

Though if there is one "fringe benefit" to all this, it is that it clearly sickens your hole to see* that we're doing all right by people, so leaving you ever more desperate to try to score points.

I should pity you but I can't, since I'm too busy getting on with the 21st century.


* - "See", but never admit.

I'm not sure he'd admit anybody to his hole!
The IFA approach is a virtue of necessity, imho. 

It'd be different if they could get only players from their dwindling population

And your opinion, humble or otherwise, counts for jacksh!t.

I mean, there is no "necessity" to recruit off-the-field staff from outside our "dwindling population" [sic] for example, yet the diversity of people in every aspect of their operation is entirely representative of the whole of NI:

https://www.irishfa.com/irish-football-association/about-the-ifa/irish-fa-staff

On and while we're on the subject, no community in NI is declining in numbers, much less "dwindling":

"Northern Ireland, as recorded by the 2011 United Kingdom census, has a population of 1,810,863, an increase of 125,800 (7.5%) over the ten-year period since the last census."

So it seems you know jack about demographics, too.

Meanwhile, those dastardly Scousers are "coercing" young Conor Bradley by offering him money:

They'll be picking him to play for them next...LOL

Yeah, just the same as if you're good enough to be paid to play professional football, you're going to be of interest to your local National Association.

Especially if they operate a "fast-track" programme for young professionals.

He's living in cloud cuckoo land. Wacko Sure he has as many waffling comments on Foot.ie as he has here.

He hibernates when Danny Invincible is around to refute everything he says. But I don't have as much patience as he does.

I see BPF has been fast tracked to League One with Sheffield Wednesday. Never going to make it at Burnley with three other keepers ahead of him now.
