    Was that his application letter?

    Does he have to work with "400 bosses"?

    I didn't want to say anything until now, though this press conference is brilliant. Roddy is the only man who can drive very sane people mental, I've seen it first hand and seen the damage he can do to people and clubs. Underneath his bluster he has a basic knowledge of the game, heavily relies on others for player tips (he hasn't got an eye for players) and is the consumate bully. Behind it all he is a very damaged and fragile person, his dishonesty masks a fear of everything and it is better for him to get out of the public eye as manager of the Mons, though he won't be able to do it. If he were to just step away from the limelight now and work on players and tactics, then he could do something decent, however..........

    I wish Mons luck, they're a decent club, they've a dangerous man in charge - in the press conference he "took Fabio out to Malta", indeed, recommending him to go to his own clubs hated rivals. Looking forward to seeing Carlton Palmer turn up in Oriel :-)

    You might say that but I couldn't possibly. :-) Only a few weeks ago Rod seemed to miscount his former clubs, maybe he just wants to put the nightmare that was Bohs behind him!

    So far he has kept to his word of bringing in young locals and recent U16 Dundalk Schoolboy league champion player Kevin Loughran made his debut last night with another U16 Garbhan McKenna on the bench. Both these lads are hot prospects for the future and are being watched by UK clubs so thank you Roddy for giving them a shot!

    We had only one home game and there was prob about 80 extra people there despite rain and snow making some of worst conditions possible so hopeful that next week if weather more favourable we will see more.

    cool. Im interested to see how the locals take to him. It always seems to end in tears with Roddy unfortunately, though i wish Monaghan nothing but success of course.

    So far there's been a great local reaction but its the points on the board that will ultimately count.

    Yeah, we could have a team of A-list Hollywood actors or stunt footballers but the Monaghan public will only really keep turning out for a successful team

    Rumour had it that we were going to be taken over a few years ago by Collins and some developer. I wanted it to happen for the good of the club, and I didn't know much about Collins at the time. Thank God it didn't. Apparently said developer did't have a pot to **** in anyway, but Roddy would have killed the club, and eventually me.

    LTFC, I think there were a few involved then, but luckily for you guys they saw through the smoke and mirrors and ran them out of town. According to the man it was down to the LT secretary asking for a bundle, though this turned out to be nonsense. All I can say with back up is that somebody or some people in the Farney are going to lose their marbles, and shirt. As my other half said (as we watched MNS) - "give it six months". Half of me hopes she's wrong, the other half can't stop giggling!

    Phew, am glad its in the Farney as that only refers to Carrickmacross and a few townlands/villages around there. You can refer to us as Oriel if you like as it has nothing to do with Gah bullcrap names and more to do with actual history.

    Its no big secret that Roddy has had difficulties but I for one am willing to give him a chance and I know am not alone.

    If you knew our chairman and our committee you will know that we wont be taken for mugs and you will know that Roddy is the right man for the job for us.

    Roddy is never the right man for any job.
