    Life gets in the way. Thankfully it has stopped getting in the way and JD's downfall is something that I need to be around for.

    Jesus, its like my dog has just come legging it up the driveway without a care in the world after being missing for a few weeks. I thought the trusty fecker was gone forever and am a mixture of delighted, furious and curious as to where the hell he has been and what the fck hes been up to.

    Pressure needs to be maintained to ensure that there is an external/independent audit and not just some internal investigation.

    Sport Ireland saying they want a full audit before funding is restored. Good stuff if they can arrange it themselves

    Yeah, I saw that, and it sounds good. In light of some of the stuff in the Sunday Times, it gets harder to refuse to accept a full audit.

    Very hard to argue that you are working hard to regain the trust of Sport Ireland and the football community in general when you refuse to take the most obvious step in that direction.

    Well we are talking about the FAI and they live in a reality of their own making, they don't see themselves as others see them

    How they brazened out today in light of yesterday's revelations is just quite something.

    They never cease to amaze.

    And all he's done is step aside.

    I'm hoping the SI appearance tomorrow at the Cttee ramps up the pressure.

    But some quality stuff going back to 2016.

    And how prescient from Le Canadien.

    I'm just reading the final report of the day in the Indo and it looks to me that the positions were adversarial at the beginning of the day. Delaney on one side with his ever present legal advisor and the FAI on the other side with their legal advice. Just how the FAI got to the position where they agreed to release that bizarre statement is a mystery.

    The amount the state offers in grants for football is miniscule. If the FAI were a decent frugal well run organisation, trying their best but coming under investigation for not being 100% flawless, they'd have every right to take the high ground and tell the legislators where to shove their grandstanding, as Conway tried to do after stating that the the FAI put in 4 euro for every one euro from the state.
    "the activities of the FAI enable the state to achieve it’s policy aims. especially in the areas of health and social inclusion".

    Is the “stepping aside” terminology purely a mechanism to retain his UEFA position for a sustained period? His FAI role has to be untenable at this point.

    My understanding is that in order to terminate Mr Delaney's contract the FAI must jump through the legal loops. First action is to suspend him, this suspension has been coined as 'Stepping aside'. Until findings are fully proved against him Mr. Delaney is entitled to be an FAI member albeit one in suspension. This could drag on and end up in a legal wrangle.

    Geysir the money from Sport Ireland is small but the amount for Sports Capital Grants is the fling around money Delaney used to get people on his side. It appears to be in the €50 million region. Now consider how long that might have sat in an FAI account before payout came. There is always a way to delay a payout to the benefit of the account holder.

    Regardless of his FAI appointment (or lack of), his Uefa position is secure until 2021. 'Stepping aside' is irrelevant re Uefa until that time. I get the feeling though, he's dicing with ignominy and risks losing the Uefa position.
