    They had a whole page on LOI even at this early stage. Its the only reason I buy the paper is for their excellent LOI coverage. The rest of the paper is awful tripe.

    Squad is certainly looking better now. Barrett should be a good replacement for McNally. Still think we need an experienced goalie though, unless this kid from Liverpool turns out to be exceptional. As for SO’D, I’d say the jury is still out on him for most Pats fans. 5th or 6th again and he’ll probably come under pressure. On the other hand, we can’t keep changing our manager every season and hope to make progress. We looked alright at times last year, awful at others, so who knows ?
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Paid employment AND paid for playing junior football so probably not worth the hassle of loi

    That attempt at not using we didn't last very long.

    What kind of cash would junior's be getting in Limerick?
    Will all Limerick fans get behind Treaty or is there some mixed feelings?

    You'd have to expect some mixed feelings. The name annoys a lot of people from what I've seen and read (not me personally), so the sooner they feel they can change it the better.

    No really so much the name being annoying (and it is a bit annoying) but rather sounding like a completely new completely unattached club which of course it is, also Limerick FC hasn't gone away but I wouldn't support them I a million years with POS involved, that would be my feelings anyway. This new thing will take a bit of getting used to.

    It might sound silly, but would 'Limerick Treaty' be any better? Also, where did the red and white strips come from? They seem random colours. Im sure the club will evolve, and maybe reclaim the 'spirit' of the other Limerick teams. With Limerick F.C still around, im sure there were possible legal troubles if the club identity got too close to POS team.

    They're the original colours of senior football in Limerick.
    The ball is round and has many surprises.

    The red and white stripes were Limerick Utds original colours back in 1937 when they first entered the loi. Recently the Treaty chairman seemed to claim POS has some sort of ownership of a predominantly blue kit!!!! For me the name isn't the big issue as Limerick FC still hasn't gone away and Treaty is a completely new club which seems to be more Midwest than Limerick when you hear to Treaty chairman interviews, it'll take a bit of getting used to supporting a new team but you can't just forget the last 30 odd years supporting Limerick City/ AFC/ FC/ 37 which always just felt like a continuation of a club rather than a completely new club like now. In the end I think it ended up being a conscious decision by Treaty to make the new club appear completely separate to anything we had in the past.

    The hope is certainly that POS will eventually give up, and let the new club subsume the old one and be "Limerick" again.

    The fact that we can't actually go to matches also a factor in making a connection as well. I'd love to be able to head out to Bray for the first match, but I can't even leave north Dublin.

    Don't hold your breath re Pat giving up and good point about not attending games being a factor in making a connection, I'm just not feeling it yet.

    On the name the board of Treaty went with Limerick United at the start.

    A quick look on Solocheck would have told them Paud owns the name Limerick United.

    Paud started making legal noises and in a blind panic they went with Treaty United. Which is awful.

    So it wasn't so much a conscious decision more a balls up by someone

    They then sent easily led people out into the wild to make stupid claims on their behalf.

    The amount of actual adults I have had to explain the fact that, no, Pat O'Sullivan doesn't in fact own the word Limerick or the colour Blue to is unreal.

    But ya, make a mistake, deflect, spoof, feed info to gullible people.

    Plus ca change.





    I can't see Paud going anywhere until he gets what he feels he's owed (Irony is something he struggled with from day one.) I don't think the FAI are in a position to give him any bobs though.

    Will be interesting to see the Academy Licenses. If, as the rumour was last night, both Limerick teams are given underage licenses, it will show the FAI still can't/won't/don't want to deal with him. If just Treaty are given the underage it will show the FAI are confident their ducks are in a row.






    On the playing side, the squad that was training for Treaty last night is basically players that played under Tommy and haven't been able to get another League Of Ireland club and the Galway United players from Alan Murphys tenure that Caulfield didn't want.

    So, in answer to who's going to win the 2021 league, probably not Treaty.

    There was a club owner in Limerick
    Who proved to be something of a maverick
    For his perceived impiety
    He got gazzumped by Treaty
    And the whole process has left him feeling quite sick

    There once was a mod on the net
    Who thought poetry a safe bet
    Then committed a rhyme
    Which resembled a crime
    Put your Limerick back it's not done yet

    Should have gone with Limerick Celtic. Or even Limerick Rangers and play in blue.
