    Who's really pushing for this club to keep going ?
    I'm probably being a bit OTT here, but they have no fans, no base in a community, they are a money pit and clearly in trouble, and now this ?

    Now doubt we'll have The Lep on now telling us how the club moving out of Fingal is part of 'the plan'.

    Fingal's financial projections for licencing will now be based heavily on gate receipts given that the sugar daddy is gone. Given also that the vast majority of fans at their games are away fans .. and this isn't exactly in the christmas spirit, a bit of a reluctance to go to (I wouldn't say boycott) of their home games by away fans would quickly finish them off !! and as a bonus Bohs would loose the rent. Ba humbug. Ask yourself how fed up are you propping up the likes of Fingal and UCD .. lovely football my a**e, I want atmosphere and rivalry.

    Apparently this is gonna cost them €100,000 in rent. Not sure if that's per season or for the 3 season deal. At least we never have to set foot in the Santry Siro (yeah, right) ever again.

    Grand earner for bohs. Wonder what the betting is that both clubs will still be around when the 3 year deal expires?

    Cheaper and more people around the area would be my guess

    At least it means that we won't have to go to that kip in Santry again.

    I wouldn't shed a tear if they went belly up. No ground, no fans. It's pathetic the number of fans they bring away to a Dublin derby - 40 or 50? Some junior clubs bring more.

    Given the fact that NAMA are chasing Gerry Gannon, I'd say their days are numbered or at least the days when they could pay outrageous wages for some fairly average players and totally distort the market.

    Good riddance to them, I say.

    Gannon pulled the plug. That's public knowledge. Wether Nama go after him or not will have no bearing on the future of the club.

    You cant predict how much you will get on gate receipts but i see where you are coming from. It would be true to say that Pats, rovers, bohs ,dundalk and drogheda once or twice had more support at our home games no argument there. It would be foolish for any club to think they can survive on home fans alone. You are not propping up anyone . I think we all want atmosphere and a bit of friendly rivalry.

    Its explained in the club statement in case you havent read it. I think we got a licence based on our plan to move to lusk something along the lines of drogheda but with it not happening anytime soon a move had to be on the cards.

    You say we have no fans then you say we bring a pathetic number of fans, confused much ?

    Good riddence? eh?

    Gannon and nama have nothing to do with Sporting Fingal seeing that its public knowladge that he isnt with us anymore. Fingal wasnt paying outragous wages that was down to cork and shels in the past.

    Do you know exactly how much they were getting a week and how it compared to other clubs? are you saying that Pats were paying outragous wages?

    We paid Dempsey 2800 a week its fairly well known we were paying stupid fucking wages.

    I know how much they were on with us and that you offered more, does that count?

    yeah we were, paying ndo, keane, O'cearuill savage amount of money, not far offer offering gamble 4k a week.

    Why would players drop down to the first division unless it was for more money??
    dont say for first team football, because they could have got that in the premier...

    Chances are that it was knowing that they will be paid each week . I wouldnt know or wish to know how much each player is paid but from what ive been told by certain people in the know its not as much as what some people think it is.

    Are you saying that some players was getting more than Dempsey? I doubt it to be honest.
    Basically Republics comments doesnt stand in the context it was intended to if Pats had been doing the very same thing he is annoyed about Fingal doing.

    Yeah we get a lot of that around here, we forget we were the worst offenders of the golden age of stupid wage packets and yet can be righteous when we can slate your club and bohs.

    We have a thing were we just forget Dempsey was on 2800.

    There was a slight difference between ourselves and Bohs on wages though. We just used Kelleher's money, they borrowed for their wages.

    Equal levels of stupidity of course
