    Changing the arrangement where Rovers first team players can move freely between the divisions and play in both teams is an obvious solution to the impasse.
    U21 looks too strict, the team wont be competitive

    Why just not copying what works in Spain... U23 teams with a maximum 6 players who can be under 25 (this players can't play for first team)
    No possibility to use "A" team players for the "B" team

    As for the 1st division trying desperately to be taken seriously, give me a break. It's the right place for those clubs who don't have their $hit together, for one reason or another. Rovers, dundalk & Shels have all been there in the not too distant past and managed to escape it's clutches. If you don't like your club being there, get off your hole, get people into your club, into your ground and generate some income for them to try and help them GTF out of the division.. until then clubs like Rovers will refuse to bypass an opportunity like this to help the FAI out of a mess the FAI created ( with pi$$poor licensing restrictions) whilst also getting some playing time for their up and coming players. job done.
    I get where you're coming from albeit harshly put. Relevant to some clubs more than others, a lot easier said than done and really is an issue for clubs at the top end of the PD also, no?

    I've no wish to offend anyone, but I'm getting a bit sick of hearing from whingein 1st Division clubs declaring "won't someone please notice us". God helps those who help themselves.

    As for the guy mentioning comparisons to the blueshirts ambivalence to Ireland's homeless epidemic, you should be ashamed.

    This is right out of the Republican Party of Americas playbook. Its worse than Fine Gael.

    Something like this would work or just have a 1st Div panel of players. No switch of players between the two divisions.
    What ever system is chosen must be the same for every team in the division.

    I don't see how rovers B having a youth squad only will solve this problem. FD clubs have been clear they see the entry of a reserve team as cheapening the division and don't want to be in a league in a few times which could be 50% made up of reserve sides (dundalk & Pats have made sounds about it in the past). Speaking to a lot of fans of late and many don't see the league starting on time

    9 days to go until the supposed start of the First, any update on what is happening? Seems stupidly quiet given how close the league start is

    I think the 6 clubs that weren't awarded licenses last week had until today to rectify any areas they were failing in.

    Johnny Ward has tweeted to say as far as he knows Limerick didn't apply in the end and the first fixtures released will be the official ones with rovers B included. If that's the case it's over to longford town to decide whether they set the tone and boycott or whether the clubs just roll over and accept it

    I'm going to say they'll do the latter when push comes to shove. Why risk a points deduction which could harm their promotion chances when there's no guarantee the other teams will follow suit? Personally I think the "insult" is overblown. I wouldn't like to see half the division made up of second teams though.

    I'd say after all the uncertainty & problems behind the scenes everyone just wants to get season underway & put this behind them

    Seen that but ward claims the ATFC manager informed him they have got a license. Public meeting in athlone tonight and reading the comments there's a lot of cynics who feels it may be an excuse to pull out of senior football.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Cabo pull out using this as a smoke screen, it has been a failed experiment.
    The BS going on with clubs in the first division scrambling to get licences really does make the claims from the likes of Cabo that the leagues integrity is at stake over allowing Rovers B in really is comical

    Saw article somewhere with Cabo they nearly merged with some team altogether and were going to pull out. Wonder was it Bray considering Pat Devlins connections?

    "all applicants"
    That seems to confirm that Limerick didn't apply in the end.
