    So the league will resume with the same rules as it started, apart from only two rounds of fixtures. I can imagine a few clubs at the bottom of the Premier won’t be happy with one automatically relegated and then a play off aswell.

    I will no longer hear a single word from any first division club against Rovers 2 being in the league unless another new club applies!



    I am of course joking, though I will be bringing this up at any suggestion that Rovers are a club that only looks out for themselves.

    Dundalk V Rovers in Oriel looks absolutely massive already, If ever a season was gonna be decided around European games and games V each other its this year.

    If the government regulations remain the same we could be looking at crowds of up to 5,000 in the grounds in September, which could mean that if fixtures stay the same order one of the first game with fans could be Rovers vs Bohs in Tallaght. To say tickets for that will be gold dust would probably be a contender for understatement of the century

    So is it behind closed doors until September or are there 500 allowed up until then?

    500 would include Players, Staff, Referees, Board Members etc...

    I'd assume the 500 people will essentially just be rounded down to essential matchday personnel and club reps. Once you start letting fans in you need security, etc and the number becomes smaller so probably not viable.


    I'd also like to point out many on here argued against me quite a lot when I said it would be ridiculous to call the league off for the year, said I was being stupidly optimistic. Don't be shy lads you can apologise for being so horribly far wrong anytime you want... We all know who you were anyway.

    I agree with you Nigel on this. You would think with Dundalk being in the first division for seven years over a decade ago that statement wouldnt have being made. There are some progressive teams in the first division the likes of us who are far better equipped than over a decade ago even at our height, Drogheda Utd,Bray Wanderers the list is endless. As for the top flight with the behaviour of certain clubs dont get me started ie Lee Power at Waterford. Dont blame Alan Reynolds for walking out on them.

    It fairly leaves Sligo with a hole to get out of.

    If we end up replacing Sligo with Cabinteely for next season, that would be great altogether.

    The crying first division clubs will be happy now anyway. A club could potentially earn around 18 points, lose 10 of their 18 games in the FD and have a shot at the playoff for PD football. What a laugh.

    I am not going to reply directly back to this. First Division clubs never was the cause of the holdup. For goodness sake they even released a statement a few weeks back saying they had no objection to the season restarts.
    This is desperate times we are in. Nothing was said when Wexford got promoted a few years back. If Cabinteely go up so be it. I would be quite happy to see them go up if we dont get promoted. End of story.

    The PD doesn't need another Dublin club, and certainly not Stradbrook (surely they'd have to play elsewhere though).

    What the Premier Division "needs" is the 10 best teams in the country in it, I couldn't care less if they're spread across the country or all from within 10 minutes of eachother, if they earn their place in the division on the pitch that's all I care about

    That's true. Hopefully Harps get relegated and Galway get promoted.

    It will be 5,000 with social distancing, either 1m or probably 2m (like where it's possible at concerts). So that means very little for LOI.

    Hopefully they have streaming ready to go for July 31, but no doubt that will be another drama.

    Win our game in hand and Cork are bottom. If we don’t get out of it so be it but we’re not cut adrift.

    Try to actually win something for the first time in nearly 50 years and I might take your yo-yo club seriously as it might finally bring something to the PD 😃

    You talk some amount of ****e on here but this odd hatred of Harps just takes the biscuit.

    At least harps aren't burning money and are a stable club. The same cannot be said for the majority of clubs. If we had a league of clubs run as well as they are we'd be in a much better place.
