    I was listening to the RTE soccer podcast earlier and Alan Mathews was on it and they were chatting about Noel Melvins sudden death. Alan and Noel were workmates at the bank. May he rest in peace Noel Melvin.

    Vincents son is now Chairman of Drogheda Utd. RIP Vincent he was instrumental in Droghedas rise to the high stage in the mid 00s before the crash brought Drogheda down. He seems highly though of from reading that statement.

    C'mon, Hoey may have been dedicated to Drogheda but he sanctioned some unbelievable wage bills. It shocked me that the locals got behind him running the club again after that

    Yeah i find it amazing too that the locals still backed him even when they were close to going under. I imagine reason hes highly thought of was he stuck around club when it was in its irrelevant days ie first division and in the wilderness.
