    Tell all the Bohs you know
    that we've gone and won two-in-a-row
    and it's not gonna be three
    and it's not gonna be four
    it's more likely to be 5-1.

    Steve doesn't get tones...

    Should be easy enough fr Bohs to remortgage (AGAIN) to pay off their debts. Banks are very willing to take on risky stuff like this now.

    Thought that was fairly obvious alright. In a month and a day, will Bohs be grand and over this? Course they won't.

    Most people on here are in agreement that it's a good day for the league. The only way it's a bad day for the league is if people think the money being spent was somehow the league's genuine level, but that clearly was never the case.

    This was always going to happen. As with bad things that are always going to happen, it's good to get them uot of the way and start focussing on progress again.

    Nope; just that "It's bad news for the league" is wrong and "Difficult month [emphasis on the month] ahead for Bohs" is wrong.

    it IS another bad day for the league and a terrible day for Bohs (albeit probably not underserved).

    The last 3 champions Shels, Drogs and now Bohs have gone (will go) to the wall. It will send out a message to the non-LoI football "supporter" that the league is fooked.

    Expect a lot of coverage on this one from reporters that would probably struggle to name 5 grounds in the league!!!

    Off topic, but Sporting Fingal are being bankrolled by the Corpo and a property developer, yeah? So when does Gannon pull out?

    Didn't he guarantee the budget for five years when the Council set them up or something like that? I wonder how enforceable that is.

    Only a few years back Derry City were robbed of a league title by Shels doing something similar and now, if we win our last 3 games, it's quite possible that we've been robbed of another title by Bohs doing the same.

    I think I'm going to have to change the honours roll on my Derry City poster at home.

    I'd feel sorry for you if you weren't overspending massively yourselves this season.

    Another good day for the league as another unsubstainable club stretching themselves too far will have to pull back now and try to run their club substainably.

    You'd swear you were spending millions less than them

    Bad day for the league from the point of view of the negativity that will follow, especially if Bohs also end up in examinership - although I don't know if they can by virtue of their status as a private members club. On the other hand it probably means that next season will see the "cop-on" tablets being taken widely when it comes to running costs etc.

    A much more sustainable league is now likely which ultimately will be good for the game here ( I hope).
    Ask not what your club can do for you but what YOU can do for your club.

    Define "massively"....?

    Owing a few clubs what are relatively minor sums in Irish football does not equate to "massively".

    Let's say that selling Pat McCourt possibly saved the club. Massive enough for you?

    And I disagree that E30k is a "relatively minor sum" in Irish football. It's 5% or so of our budget we're missing, for a start.

    So you guys weren't spending big for either of those 2 titles and have an enviable track record of financial stability then?

    Hmm. So if Derry don't pay that soon they won't get a license- correct?

    Do you want the "In theory" answer or the "In reality" answer?

    Bohs are fvcked. Liam Carroll will now sue them for the monies he has paid Bohs as the original deal made between the 2 parties was in fact fraudulant with Albion owning the tramway terrace.

    Expect to see the FAI buying out Dalymount (again) to save Bohs. I dont shed the slightest tear for a club run so recklessly.

    The FAI don't have the cash to be buying Dalymount. They're on the hunt for a finance package themselves apparently.
