    Staggering stuff. Reading between the lines is Duff giving them one last final chance on this and he will be walking if he doesn't have a new contract in his pocket like pretty much now, it should have all been sorted in the summer. And then we may also have out of contract players and coaching staff walking signing for other clubs if Duff isn't sorted

    If Duff isn't Shels manager next season the new regime will have immediately lost the room with the fans and set the club back there won't be any recovery, we have seen it happen time and time again in this league seen with Cork, Dundalk, Limerick, Bray
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians

    Be a massive shooting yourself in the foot story if they push Duff out.
    Money men think differently though they may want their own man in place who will do what he is told with no questions. The fans won't like it but if money is thrown at the squad they will sack it up.
    But if things don't go well on the pitch the **** will hit the fan fairly quick

    No surprise he would be off somewhere once his contract was up. Very good on his day but goes awol when not in the mood.

    Ah here, ne thing that a constant with Dan McDonnell is that he is no hometown journo unless he is writing about Dundalk specifically and even then he pulls no punches, he calls things as he sees without Lilywhite tinted glasses. Its intersting that you think that it could be biased reporting though. Going purely on Bradley's post match iterviews of recent you can hardly deny that this reporting is very plausable and inside info or agendas are not really needed.

    It was meant as ‘tongue in cheek

    - I’ve now read the article and tbh found it very ‘speculative’ a little sensationalist and not too much substance or anything new - bottom line summation;

    One director p!!sed off because a single member questioned his bone fides

    Members Club directors are making reasonable point that if next season we are asked to transfer a large sum ( approx €500,000k) then other shareholders ( Desmond etc) should also make a matching contribution .

    In fairness after two pages his last paragraph was reasonable - we sell one player or improve in Europe and that will sort out the finances for 2025 ( a very acceptable large budget is already in place for (2024).

    So aside from what sounds like some petty personality based squabbles not to much to see ( albeit the Members directors looking to other shareholders to make a financial contribution is interesting)

    The rumour mill already getting in full swing is gas. You think the football is mad enough in this league and then the off-season starts.

    On the Pat's front we already have Coote apparently doing a Breslin and I heard off a former player that we're signing Jack Byrne, which I'd take with an absolute mountain of salt. Then there's the Hoban stuff, who will Galway pay a fee for off Harps this time around etc. Good times.

    Shels letting Duff go would be incredibly incompetent by the new owners. He had to be the best that has happened to them in a long time. Gobsmacking tbh. If they install a yes man to replace him the club will surely just be turned into a Hull feeder side.

    Which has probably been the aim all along. Access to the underage set up and somewhere to park players as needed.
    Upwards to the vanguard where the pressure is too high.

    Dundalk turning away much needed investment from the same people for good reason so Shels would have had an inkling of what could be ahead. Maybe they gambled and hoped to be able to fend off too much interference especially if Duff was doing the business and he certainly has. If he is out of a job he will be a big shadow over every manager as any blip and he will be touted as lurking even if not actually that fussed himself.

    Makes a mockery of the early rumours on Shels big plans to plunder Rovers, though I suspect that was some mischief making by PC.

    Fair enough, its hard to know when the SRFC seige is in place or not at times. I think once the league title was actually confirmed Bradley was always going to get much of what he wanted, maybe him calling for additional resources publically a bit premature. That said, the current state of the league in terms of what is needed footballing wise is not massive so a little should go a long way when established in the top 2 or 3 - a couple of key signings could turn also rans in to potential title contenders and Rovers are already that so just need to replace a couple of retirees and keep hold of a fit Jack Byrne eg. Unless it is decided to go for a major overhaul with progression in Europe the unofficial top target.

    Jack was there on Friday which I took as a good sign. On crutches and in a brace after an op so hopefully will be fit for Feb start assuming he stays.

    Daniel McDonnell’s article in yesterday’s Indo made for interesting reading. The behind scenes tension could have a role yet about the kind of squad Bradley can have next season.

    He played underage for Bohs so I wouldn't be surprised to him back. They badly need some depth in both full back positions.
