    Andy Myler is perfect for the job, but it may not be a big enough position to accommodate his burgeoning ego and self importance. Personality wise, very like your average Bohs fan, always spoiling for a fight over nothing, so a match made in heaven

    Jokes aside the squad need a bit of fight in them. I've never seen a team so meek when a bit of a challenge is out in front of them. This season they lacked leaders on and off the pitch which can be seen with the rotating captains armband. I don't want Myler in I think he's a bit overrated myself but if someone came in with a bit of a fighters attitude I wouldn't be against that

    Wouldn't be a fan of Myler for the job. I think he's a bit overrated all things considered. In saying that it's the type of character the current Bohs squad need. I have never seen a team so meek when a challenge is put to them. They lack leaders both on and off the pitch which is epitomised by the rotating captains armband. The team needs someone with a bit of fight in them and I think that person needs to be brought in sooner rather than later for multiple reasons

    The main difference is the holier than thou attitude that comes from the Bohs admin, debt cleared, climate justice stuff, look how conscientious we are etc etc and then go and do something like sign 9 players and then sack the manager. Unlike with the derby rivals who will pounce, for me it is both perplexing and entertaining.

There has been great community work done and some stellar football related stuff too, the Rovers Derby hoodoo was great fun to watch. But when things turned more recently you could hear the Lambert foot stamping in Cork! I doubt Bohs fans would claim that this hasnt been botched or fits with the image the club is trying to project - eyes off carbon credits and back on the football in a football club when needed. A marketing man might see value in the any publicity is good stuff but LoI football fans can smell fudge from miles.

    Well, there is making an announcement seeking a new manager on your social media channels and then there is making an announcement of a “new manager” when the real manager, the fella who was hired to be the manager but is now the “coach” is still at the club and the fella who is now the manager never wanted it in the first place and quits a month later. Now that is fudge production on a commercial scale.

    Oh I agree totally, it was a sh1t show and it was a didnt know whether to laugh or cringe experience for Dundalk fans. I doubt you'd find a post by myself that would say much different. I think whataboutery could be the most futile Irishism there is - lets people off the hook, perpetuates the acceptance and cycle of the 'mutually rubbish at' so its ok to be rubbish. But hey deflection seems to be the Bohs way these days!

    I'm just hoping that if we win tonight that Stephen Bradley doesn't upset wee Daniel again by banging his crest leaving the field. Hopefully bradser rereads the last letter and modifies his behaviour

    Can confirm. Measured on the Richter scale. Bohs do some great things to raise their profile and benefit their community but they're interspersed with enough absolutely cringey posturing that it makes me wonder if there's genuine insight there or if it's just a big wall and a whole lot of shyte situation.

    FWIW Dundalk renaming their stadium, "until the end of the season", is VERRRRRRRRRRY Bohs behaviour.

    See Jim Crawford is linked with bohs job today doubt he will quit his U21 job with ROI side.
    Gary Cronin is he the right man to manage Longford Town?

    As a marketing man, a hell of a lot of it is absolute fudge! With my work hat on they've done a hell of a lot right off the pitch branding and marketing the club, along with all the community stuff but there's a hell of a lot of sniffing their own farts and smelling roses going on for a long time now.

    It's almost become cult-esque with some of Bohs support, I've had conversations with many over the last few years and a lot won't take any legitimate point against the way the clubs been run or dodgy decisions, even if it's clear as day. On the other hand, there is a fairly vocal minority who would speak up internally about stuff. Something that's popping up lately now the wheels have fell off the wagon is that despite DL being full time COO or whatever it is, he's a load of side hustles going on and some are starting to say he should be concentrating on his day job running the club.

    Crawford is definitely in with a shout for it, he's only on a rolling contract with the FAI. The big stumbling block is with the playoff end of the month, he's not going to leave the 21s high and dry before then, if they win that he'll most likely sign a new deal with the FAI to take him through the finals and the next qualifying campaign.

    How exactly? Given that Bohs have existed for 130+ years and have literally never done that or anything even remotely similar.
