It's funny to look at the initial poll where 27% didn't think Delaney should have resigned - it's deeply depressing that in Ireland so many chancers get such an easy ride to positions of power, influence and wealth despite all the indications of wrong doing or incompetence.

At a guess the Del Boy fans on here Odie/SV/BD make up the 27% as they probably found a way to hype the votes.

Between Joe Delaney, Fran Rooney and Del Boy, it shows how incompetent the FAI actually is and how they rigged their elections, there were several other chancers as well but they got away with it on the basis of being a private company and telling the Govt to plss off, now they are on their knees begging.

Any independent Board member would be mad to sign up to this bankrupt corrupt crew until all investigations are complete, particularly the Garda Report and confirmation that the will is there to bring Del Boy to Court.

1. But this thread is about Delaney. Soccer. It has zero to do with Irish rugby. I'm a rugby inclined poster. I dislike soccer. So what. I fail to see the link.
2. We know that even if there was criminal activity that white collar crime goes unpunished in Ireland.
3. No evidence, just Delaney gone off into the sunset having trousered thousands in cash for the excellent work he did for Irish football. That and leaving it in a total mess, with a hopping mad minister, staff fearful for their jobs, a massive pension, pay increases for him, reductions for his staff, contracts unwitnessed by boards of management, accounts that were false etc etc etc. So no evidence. And I've zero faith in the Guards doing anything in this case.
4. Agreed.
1. Nobody is saying it was until small s made a point of being a hypocrite. A lot of the red flags are there, especially around length of service in the same roles, with the added mystery of total secrecy on certain financials.

3. He started well in his role, then got greedy and here we are. He was overpaid, but whats the comparison? Other Irish sports bodies won't disclose. And there are big financial scandles brewing in another assosciation. There is a reason other sports are not sticking the boot in

IRFU conform to all legal requirements with regard to salary disclosure and length of service, Brown is set goals from which he he develops strategies to achieve same and is constantly reviewed by the management committee, he does not control the purse strings, unlike Del Boy who ran the FAI as a dictator.

What secrecy do you speak of, is it some unused development land they recently sold, very good business.

The FAI waved Rooney's and Del Boy's salaries about as if the amounts meant talent, as in the value of a football player, they clearly did not equate. FAI have employed managers well beyond their financial capabilities and could only do so with the considerable help of Denis O'Brien, a rugby man.

There is no legal requirement to disclose salaries, individuals are entitled to their privacy, if Ross wants disclosure then he will have to pass a law to enforce same.

"And there are big financial scandles brewing in another assosciation. There is a reason other sports are not sticking the boot in"

Do you really expect anyone to believe you after your relentless defence and adoration of Del Boy for years.

You put me on "ignore" and tell everybody as if it was a legal decision but then have found a way to read my posts, do you know how dumb that makes you look.

"It needs a restructuring expert, and somebody who can go in and really give government confidence that the administrative side of the business is back in great shape again and that's going to take some time".


In fairness to Quinn he makes some good points in this article and knows his limitations as an ex player but the FAI has never been in great shape as members of the Delaney clan have raped the finances for personal gain.

That you're wrong,
Again!
You put up links and make no comments, one can only think it is because you are incapable of making comment or having an opinion.

Independent board members, in my opinion, are walking into a minefield at the FAI and the debts have not bottomed out yet, Conway/Cooke have said so.

Also there are 12 members so the new 4 independents can easily be outvoted by so called "football people".

Wrong again poor stanley!
Roy Barrett, the managing director of Goodbody Stockbrokers, has been appointed as the new chairperson of the board of the FAI.
The waster called stanley is posting that Roy Barrett, the MD of Goodbody Stockbrokers is "mad to sign up"!
Thanks for the laugh,
I love this site.

TMK, it is an unpaid role, this lad is doing his bit for the country, bit like community service or helping out at a Charity.

Let's hope his first decision is to rip up the agreement with Del Boy and get him into Court.

Is that too much to ask?

The true cost of Del Boy and the mistrust in FAI.


Old applications made by a certain great leader....look at the names of the Hon. President and Sec. in the link below, you couldn't make it up.....

Munster Football Association


Seems Del Boy's father, Joe, is still about and looks like another relative, Ger, in place, these lads will be top class at the old FF game of nod nod, wink wink.

The father, Joe was run out of FAI, years ago for a major ticketing scandal, should he really hold such a position, his presence undermines any reform in FAI.

"With debts of almost €70m, the FAI is at risk of insolvency and has asked the Government for a guarantee of €18m".

Debt figure keeps rising was only 63m before xMas.

Will UEFA finally make a conclusive statement on Del Boy and say he is out on his arse, forever, with another settlement or will they turn on him, doubt if they did a secret agreement with them on his salary.

Does UEFA condone what he did to the FAI Board and Irish football.

"Uefa is understood to have reservations about providing more advance funds to the FAI after keeping it afloat last summer, and feels the initiative should be taken from the Government side".


This is the UEFA who have stated if there is too much interference from Govt, they will kick the football teams out of all competitions, it would seem they want the Govt to put the money in and then fck off.

Nothing said about Del Boy by Uefa, you would think they want to slap his arse very hard and hang him out to dry as an example to all their members.
