    The local carabinieri are spoil sports, the merest hint of merriment in the locality and they march straight in. Our celebrations got cut short a few times over the years.

    I have to say this is all pretty bizarre. Is there a precedent from another league of one club just wading in and buying another?

    Seems to happen regularly in Europe, particularly in Belgium, Spain and Germany, where clubs hold matriculations, or merely the right to a league placing, so when clubs go bust, other teams buy the rights, often to bounce up a division - see FC Andorra in Spain, and how Red Bull got into the German league pyramid.

    I think this is different though - that's kind of buying the defunct club's licence/league place. This seems to be the departing club buying the other one. It is strange alright.

    That's far too sensible. Do they not realise this is the LOI??

    Best of luck to them. Hopefully it is vibrant club going forward and competing at the top end of the league. Has to be a question as to how big a following there is in Bray. Need to get out and support the club in numbers.

    Echoes of Home Farm - then a junior club - buying and usurping Drumcondra in 1972, wheh they were one of the LOI's aristocrats (albeit a struggling one) ? Though at least Home Farm won out in that name game.

    It just seems like Cabo paid the St Joe's lads to leave so they could run Brays youth teams instead

    Examiner saying we're looking at a 9-team second tier next season instead of 'seeking expressions of interest'.

    Why would you not seek expressions of interest?

    Especially given the LoI is talking of adding a dozen or so new clubs in 2023 for a third tier.

    What hope does that have if it's already a foregone conclusion we can't find one new team for the second tier?

  17. Thanks From:

    based solely on their Twitter posts, I'll picket Abbotstown if these clowns ever get anywhere near the League of Ireland

    It still stinks of a persistent hoax, not sure elaborate is the right word.

    Good to see this wrapped up in a manor that provides continuity for Bray supporters.
