"The news now that he has been handed a lesser role on the Youth committee seems to provide further evidence that his problems at home are casting a major shadow over his status in Europe".

"In the meantime, the FAI has repeatedly declined to comment on the widely held belief that he is still receiving his full chief executive’s salary of €360,000-a-year rather than the much lower remuneration the organisation had suggested he would receive from the point that he stepped into the specially created role of Executive Vice President".


Del Boy's position at UEFA is weakening, dump him now before it effects FAI's ability to host events, income is badly needed.

This is all "look over there" stuff created by Del Boy to plant doubt in minds about something that will happen/turn up in all the current investigations, he uses his mouthpiece, Donal Conway, to deliver the messages, the clock is running down on Del Boy and he is fighting like a cornered rat.

From boards.ie

"Heard during the week from a former FAI employee that it was because the Garda fraud department are getting involved and want to question current and past employees about the finances. He also mentioned they couldnt risk letting people know they were beyond broke as they are trying to extend sponsorship deals".


The dam will burst open soon and we will be off to the Four Goldmines, there are a lot of people dotting the i's and crossing the t's, a lot will depend on if UEFA back him or not, if there is criminal charges they just might walk away.

"Delaney told me 'if you go legal I will take it personally and there will be war'. Those were his words. It was war then. I won, they appealed and I lost."

Del Boy took a drop in salary of about 90k per annum, he ain't going to give a cent of this money to anyone, Mooney is talking to Hand as a further diversion to keep the spotlight away from his boss.

It's about time the FAI got personal with Del Boy and head for the Four Goldmines.

It's a reasonable request, Del Boy will want them to disrupt the election of a new Board as he wants and needs total confusion to allow for his return.

Its the worst thing the FAI could do. Anyone with a clue about football would oppose this.

But you know all this...

Again, anyone who posts as much about football as you do would know the background

Bad for the FAI - yes, but Del Boy wants the confusion it's how he came to power and maintains his position, divide and conquer, he will be working overtime in his Machiavellian style in the background.

What?

So Delaney is manipulating a faction of the game he fell out hard with, who were blocking all reforms, to demand something they cant get so the report doesn't get passed.

Right ho.

It's the way he operates, nobody really knows what is going on, all cloak and dagger stuff.

Its really not. Its a faction who lost influence waving their cocks. The conspiraloon stuff is tedious, he does not have that much power

"Delaney and the FAI deserve Oireachtas interrogation. Delaney’s financial dealings remain a mystery, a point his provincial fan-base overlooked in their hero-worship. But whatever Delaney has done, the board have allowed, through acquiescence or ignorance. So, unless every hidden payment and governance inadequacy is adequately explained, it is hard to see how the board can credibly continue operating as it does, or how Delaney can continue operating at all".



Excellent in depth article on the whole fiasco.

"Six separate investigations are ongoing at the association and Uefa have made available a borrowing facility to ease any cash-flow concerns at the embattled organisation".


So it looks like UEFA are now financing the FAI including, no doubt, Del Boy's 30k per month + expenses + housing benefits + pension.

If we ever get to the end they will probably wrap it all up into a loan and have the FAI set up another repayment plan.

Conway wants to stay in situ for at least another year, so Del Boy can have a loud voice/supporter on the new Board.

Del Boy has no intention of been told what to do by politicians or SI, he will be hoping that his years of dishing out favours over the years will now pay back and block the proposals at EGM and AGM and UEFA force his reinstatement.

Amazing that journos are not tracking his movements.

"Fifa now say that: “The events referred to happened nine years ago and in this respect they would no longer be subject to an ethics proceeding according to the relevant Fifa regulation".


FIFA leave Del Boy off the hook, an indication that they will continue to back him.

You can be sure Del Boy is out the back with his hand up Conway's arse as he dictates the moves, Conway should have walked away months ago.
