    I cant wait to see Alan Kelly's dyed hair and tanned chestular area make it big on the European stage. He's a natural replacement for anders Frisk. Just needs to throw some bling into the mix. Maye GOC can lend him a big, gold "I Love Cork" chain?

    Too cyncial lads!

    After some of the performances of the 'elite' world referees over the last month, they can't be that bad.

    Look on the bright side folks. The way bomb hoaxes are going at the moment in Dublin Airport*, there's every chance they could get stranded in Latvia or some place and not be able to get home in time to ref a League game here.

    * Not that I'm advocating making silly prank calls. Absolutely not at all.

    Does two most controversial refs = two best refs?

    Surely the best referees are noticable by their anonimity (so to speak)

    Yeah , Kelly styles himself as Anders Firsk allright , pity his refereeing is nowhere near Firsk's standard.

    Intriguingly, Stokes has been posted to Belarus, the only country in Europe which retains the death penalty.

    With Kelly, Stokes, Buttimer, Tuite, Hanney, Hancock, Delaney etc all out of the country in varying capacities, will there be anyone left to handle the domestic programme?
    A leading authority on League of Ireland football since 2003. You're probably wrong.
