League Of Ireland Fans Made Clear Their Feelings About FAI And John Delaney After Landmark Dundalk Victory

League Of Ireland Fans Made Clear Their Feelings About FAI And John Delaney After Landmark Dundalk Victory
By PJ Browne

After Dundalk's monumental victory against BATE Borisov in the Champions League last night - one which leaves them just a step from the group stages - the FAI sent out a congratulatory tweet regarding the win.

The relationship between the FAI and the league has long been a troubled one. LOI fans, rightly, believe that the league is neglected by Irish football's governing organisation. Of course John Delaney once infamously referred to it as the 'problem child' of Irish football.

Replies to the tweet really told how fans feel about the FAI's treatment of Irish clubs.

Last week, the FAI announced that it would be providing funding of €100,000 to the league. That's €5,000 per club.

That was one of the main sticks used to beat Delaney and Co.

Obligatorily, there was also reference to Delaney's 'problem child' line.

And that's just a sample of the replies. They were far more numerous.
