    It's in Inchicore, I understand.
    It's funny how you can't spread carcinogens in an office by smoking, but you can cough and cough and cough.

    Fantastic choice. It will be a nice few pints to wet the appetite ahead of the cup final. Then a good game of ball to enjoy of course.

    Waterford appear to have sacked Bircham this morning.

    Interesting timing

    Only speculation on my part, but they did only name 4 subs on the bench last weekend and 2 of them were goalkeeers so maybe there was some sort of falling out with the squad?

    Still, surely you hold things together until after the playoff at least...so it must have been something fairly significant to earn an instant termination at this point.

    Canít sack a manager by text message, ludicrous.

    Reading between the lines it's a disciplinary issue of some sort alright. Nothing else really makes sense

    There's probably fault on both sides - it's the LoI after all - but I'd say the club are probably the ones more in the right here.

    Complete speculation on my part obviously

    Perhaps him tweeting about the 1-week suspension was what pushed things over the edge.

    Waterford trying to out do Dundalk/Peak6 as the 'banter' club in the league. From the outside Bircham did a good, and you would expect them to beat UCD. It must be some behavior issue, because sacking a manager before a playoff (and the third manager of the year? - I cant remember anymore).... its wild.

    Possibly. You'd have to say that's a bit petty though. Like you say, beat us first and then sack him.

    Their recent form's not been great - no wins in five, but in fairness they've only lost to Dundalk and Rovers in that. It's enough to win on Friday. Now we have to think we've a chance

    He seemed a bit of a wild card sort but they should have left him in for the playoff. I donít think text if the best form of communication for important matters. Things can be taken out of context and sometimes people us the wrong choice of words in text conversations. A face to face was the best option or a zoom call at worst.

    Didn't he sign a new contract not too long ago? He seems a bit of a hot head you wouldn't know what he's done or said.

    Youd wonder has he been approached by another club based on the good Press he has generated here and pushed for this.
    Again complete speculation but the timing just seems so bizarre.

    They are.

    (Seems to be separate links for UCD and Waterford fans - not sure about neutrals. Maybe ye have to commit to supporting one or other of us!)

    Hopefully the regular Pats lads are doing security. Id like to sit in my regular spot or as close as.

    This league really does make it difficult to love it sometimes. What a mess.
