    Dublin County FC

    These lot look like they deserve their own thread. I mean, yes, we're talking about them so the marketing is working, but it's getting harder to shake the similarities to Sporting Fingal and Dublin City. Especially when they're likening themselves to Dublin City. Their twitter account is almost like a parody account (and joined in Jan 2017?)

    OK so heres the thing. They have two twitter accounts. Are we sure the first one is real? I keep thinking it is all either a con or a joke ot something else. If that first account is a parody it would make more sense

    Yeah, that would look more like it alright.

    But feckit, the other one is good craic. And for a parody account, it's bloody believable, which is mainly the fault of that silly website.

    Hard to know what is true and what isnt. They want to represent the County of Dublin? But their Crest is solely based on Dublin city center. Clueless

    If they join, they will be gone in 2 years.

    I do worry that the FAI might decide the perfect short-term good news story is to flood the LOI with new clubs. I'm sure Irish Sea FC would generate a few headlines. And an actual Limerick derby. But of course it would all end in tears very quickly.

    The twitter account called Dublin County FC is a parody account, it was originally a WWE fan account or something before he deleted all the old tweets

    That twitter account is indeed a paradox account.

    Your man from Forgotten Clubs on twitter is somehow making everyone hate the idea more with his weird defence of them and their project.

    This seems to be the 'real' account. Either way, the whole thing has been mighty craic so far, with the Forgotten Clubs Twitter account, who is involved in the project, getting himself stuck into a quality to and fro with Dan McDonnell last night.

    If this is real and the other fake then the real account has been scooped for their handle twice. The "parody" account was originally @irishseafc and the "genuine" account @irishseafc1. Now its @dublincountyfc and @dublincountyfc1.

    That seems unlikely, and it would be easy to go with @irishsea or @irishseafootball or something and @dublincounty rather than add the 1.

    It still smells like a very well done Parody but there's enough ridiculousness to make me believe they are both genuine.

    This lad is involved in the club anyway, according to their website, in to do media/comms.

    This has to be a Paddy Power publicity stunt.

    'Dublin's newest super soccer franchise'.

    This whole thing has to be some yank extracting the urine.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    I can live with that. It's the fecal mess they'd leave behind that concerns me more.

    For sure, the aftermath can be always be the problem. All fine and dandy when there is a few quid flying around.

    The point I was trying to make tho was ... is this a real thing. Website has players with no names, US connections, agents names with a few players they have sold, Irish stadiums listed that has nothing to do with them, some reference to Ukraine or something. Its just bizzaro.

    Edit: Some people have way to much time on their hands.
