    This is classic FAI. Release a fixture schedule with 10 teams in it including TBC and then end up with a 12 team league. Presume this means teams must budget for 33 games rather then 27?

    To allow for playoffs it looks like a 22 game league, rumours of 1division sheild to make up the difference

    Give the Shield winners a playoff spot and I'd be onboard. Other than that it's pointless games for a meaningless bit of tin.

    Rovers II refused entry , so new regime in place in Abbotstown but same old small minded back woods mentality prevails as progressive club is made suffer to placate the small minded begrudgers - same thing happened all those years ago when Giles came back and here we are 40 years later and seems nothing has changed

    Dublin County refused a licence in the end, which makes sense with no underage setup or anything like that.

    Whatever you think about Rovers II in the LoI, it's utterly daft to force them to go through licensing, award them a licence, and then say they can't play after all.

    So that's potentially twice now that Rovers have stepped into the breach to fill in when the FAI are stuck only to get tossed aside again at the first chance?

    Sure, Rovers weren't taking part out of altruism and obviously I'd have more of a stake in Treaty getting in if there's only one place going but it seems like a pretty shoddy way to treat Shamrock Rovers at the same time. It's every bit as ludicrous that they don't know how many teams they'll have at this late juncture as it is for any other club to be waiting on fixtures/licenses.

    The report I read said that it was Morton Stadium the licencing committee had an issue with, rather than the underage set-up (which sounds incredible to me, but...)

    Yeah, I saw that in the Examiner just now. So did they apply to join the LoI without having anything in place regarding a ground to play in? That's amateur hour if so, especially as Morton specifically featured on their website

    I also don't understand how they can have met the underage criteria

    Is there any reason to oppose Shams B playing other than pride? I find it incredible that we're starved for teams, and a club wants to field one and are not allowed to. It's not like it's so weird. The big teams in Spain field C teams, for Pete's sake. And if Rovers get an advantage from it, good for them. There's little enough quality in the league that there's nothing to be gained holding back a club.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    The contrast from last season -

    Rovers II in, devaluing the 1st division outrage.
    Rovers II out, poor Rovers.

    It does cause questions, like as mentioned having to jump through hoops (ugh!) that are going to be the same as the 1st team. Were they just a safety net until there were other options. Where's the inside man has gone - a home town ref can be harshest!!? As for the Irish Sea mob, is there some issue with Motrten itself or was it not formally agreed to use it. If its the latter then they should be banned permanently - weeks out from KO and not to have a place to play in an application? Doesnt bode well for ever getting things fully in order.

    This is a mess all caused by FAI. Treaty told by FAI they were number 1st club to in & were told to make sure license application was perfect. Dublin county were encouraged to pull out process & fai hoped rovers would accept they wouldn't be in 1st division.

    When rovers said they expect to be in 1st division, FAI had to go back to Dublin county to submit their licence application, & they ran out time.


    Pat o Sullivan stating that limerick FC will be back in league next year, surly FAI wont allow him to apply & enter league as limerick isn't big enough for 2 clubs

    The League of Ireland shouldn't need a Rovers B Team - or any B Teams - to make up the numbers in a 10 team second tier. The fact that it did is recognition of the utter failure in how domestic football has been managed in the country for years. It is a symptom of a much deeper problem.

    Anyone who thinks that having B teams playing in the second tier of our 20 club 2 tier system is either a) A good thing, or b) Something to lament when it ends, is frankly deluded.

    Rovers have undeniably been messed about here by the FAI. But they should've learned after the first time this happened to them.

    Unfortunately nothing I have heard from the FAI so far gives me hope that there will be a change in how Domestic Football is run for the foreseeable future.

    Surely there has to be a policy re B teams. Either they cannot be entered into the league system or they can and their application is treated same as any other.

    There is an inherent licensing issues with B Teams. They don't have their won youth system - it's effectively the system of another club already in the league.

    The extension of that is that you could have multiple teams in the league all fed into by just one youth structure, which would enable them all to tick that box for a license without having to pay for their own individual structures.

    Is that a good thing ? Is it really n the spirit of the license stipulation about a conveyor belt of talent from youth upwards ?

    So if the kids from Rovers Academy feed into Rovers B like you're stating, then what youth structure feeds into the Rover's A Team to enable it to get a license ? Two licensed clubs using just one youth system between them.

    Any chance Rovers 'B' would be admitted to LSL?
