    What this shows is that we need a pyramid! There's no point re-creating the Connacht Senior League, so lump them in with Ulster. MSL needs to be expanded to cover all of Munster. The existing Junior Leagues can feed into these.
    Is there currently prize money on offer in the LSL or MSL?
    As regards B teams playing in a pyramid system, maybe allow them play up as far as the third tier. U-23 leagues are a waste of time imo, loan younger lads to teams further down the pyramid and at least they'll have experience of playing mens competitive football.

    Sport Ireland have commented - they say the decision was taken "due to a combination of Covid-19 and requirements for the Olympic Games". They also deny that they had a legally-binding lease with Dublin County; they say they had an agreement subject to availability.

    So now covid gets added to the big book of Irish excuses that cover anything , in there with such favourites as Insurance & GDPR.

    You can add 'Health and Safety' and 'De Crash' to that list too.

    The definitive list is available here, and is still one of the greatest newspaper columns in Irish history:

    https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/a...diary-1.460146

    With a view to keeping somewhat on topic, does anyone know if any actual LOI players were courted or provisionally signed by this shower? Or was it just going to be a mad last-minute scramble to pick up a few LSL players, Rovers II loanees and whoever else might be going?

    It wouldn't have surprised me to have seen a lot of foreign players at the club tbh.

    Presumably a Ukranian goalkeeper, with a habit of inexplicably failing to save shots at key points in the game.
