    Sean came in for a lot of criticism in his last stint with us, he did seem to be going through the motion at times.And whilst I will admit to being one of those who complained, some of the abuse he got from Harps fans was ridiculous especially when he got carried off injured there was an audible cheer from some sections of Finn Park.

    Best of luck to him, hopefully he can put that last few years behind him and has a successful time with Harps

    Boyd didn't have a great time with Harps, and I don't think he had a great time with Longford either. Jury is definitely out on him. He won't be starting for Harps anyway, but handy to have in the squad.

    If he gets a run of games and his fitness back you will be amazed at how good he is

    I don't know. If they were to do a deal it wouldn't necessarily mean paying more up front. It just seems to not be happening for whatever reason.

I have never seen him coach so wont say that he is no good (which is possible and he isnt a great communicator) but he is a remnant of the way things were manipulated by Delaney, yes the 2 senior coaches were also appointed in a strange arrangement but it has been suggested that RK was to be Delaney's inside man nd anointed one - its possible McCarthy copped that info was being passed on. Not associated with RK but we did have the whole motivational video leak debacle which cause another former playing legend step down on principle so there is trust issues still. There seems to still be some shady undertones in the setup and its unsurprising that SK handpicked his own coaches and didnt allow any forced upon him. Crawford had a very similar response also. Lets take that he is a muck coach well it wont make much difference to Arron Greene anyway but letting a poor attacking coach lose on the like of Burke or Farrugia? Key coaching points today - a signature goal celebration....

    If RK is much affected by 'the snub' then he needs to stay away from football management!!
    Well, yeah, it is SK's decision and I suspect both Mick and SK handled it in their own way to assert their own authority and he's probably been hung out to dry in the process. I wouldn't have too much sympathy for him but I could understood why he'd dig in his heels.

    So Giovagnoli's role is now 'coach' and will not be selecting the team

    Sounds complex but Iíd imagine a lot of that is being said to ensure the club avoids any more issues over Giovagnoli not having the requisite licence. In reality I doubt thereíll be much change to whatís going on currently.

    It's sounds like a complete mess, and fairly typical of Buffalo Bill's golden touch. They'll be picking the team with an X Factor style phone in voting system by the end of the season.

    The clown car that is dundalk, off the pitch, carries on at pace it seems.
    Let's see if shields can run the club again for a season, and see what comes of it. Should be a tasty no holds barred affair on Friday anyway.

    I have to say, the more I was thinking about FG, if he does not have the required badges to manage in europe, and they can't get him onto a course until late 2021 or 2022, what was the point in giving him a contract for 2021?

    So the demotion is not a surprise to me. Seems O'Donnell at Pats also does not have his full badges, but the difference is they are not playing in europe in 2021.

    For the Cleje game in Europe last year, John Gill was the manager as he had the badges.

    This is still a mess, as they obviously don't want FG as the manager without his badges even for LOI games now.

    This is a simple box ticking exercise. They have to name Keegan and state Fillipo will not be picking the team.

    Its the exact same set up as last season.

    According to the RTE article, he doesn't even have an A license let alone a pro license! That is absolutely ridiculous. He's less qualified than a lot of schoolboy coaches in this country!

    Dundalk have beeb brilliant value recently, who would have thought we'd end up like this. Almost would rather pre-season never ending considering we're winning it again and Keegan is nailed on to make it 3 relegations out of 3.

    That's the other chap Rossi I think. They're talking about getting FG on the next available Pro Licence course with another association so he must have an A licence or he wouldn't be able to get on it.

    Ah apologies I misread the article! It was indeed referring to the other chap!
