    Mick Cooke

    From an Athlone fan

    I am hearing Cooke has been sacked! Pete mahon was to take over but in the last minute wanted more money so looks like Keith long is to get the job

    Heard at the match on Friday (via a mole in their camp) that he was under serious pressure alright. While it may seem harsh to judge him by a result away to the Champions, I think it was more a case that this was their 10th game and they seem to have set a benchmark of how many points they expected to have by then.

    Apparently they've only paid the rent for their ground up to the 20th of September and are struggling to get money together. All merchandise from thier club shop was robbed a few days ago also which doesnt help things for them
    And maybe a chance for a second... AND IT IS! IT'S ALL OVER! PATS HAVE WON THE CUP!

    The rent thing is odd

    Fella 'gave' then money to clear the debt. They've seen it as a donation (and that's what was reported at the time). He thinks he bought a controlling interest

    The 'rent' was nominal. Something like €4k is 'owed'. It's basically your man making a play at taking them over fully

    it all seems very strange.

    I just cant get my head around the idea of there being issues behind the scenes at a LOI team between a board and a power hungry individual. all very odd
