The reply so far says it all TBH....:rolleyes:




Its a falling league in all honesty. Main sposnors Eircom announced a while back
that they were pulling out of sponsoring the Eircom League so thats a huge loss
for the league in all areas.

Teams have had to cut wages, some as high as 50% and players are looking
elsewhere.


Drogheda, and Bohemians are the two main teams and Derry City not far behind.
Drogheda just missed out on the 3rd round of qualifying for the Champions
League this season, so that was a disappointing end to the Euro run for them.

Liveing in Dublin, I used to be a regular Bray Wanderers goer, but haven't been in
about 2 years, which annoys me, but theres not much of an atmosphere any
more.

Theres been dirty incidents in games before, with Bohs "Ultras" causing fighting
and injuries after and before games.

How does "Irish" football compare to the English leagues ?
Ehh...the Eircom League (First Division) is on a par with League 2 in England,
maybe League 1 but thats probably stretching it. Some teams like the top ones
could probably hold their own in League 1 and maybe even give it a damn good
go in the Championship (Now I'm really being optimistic!)....But no where near
the Pre standard! :eek:

^^Equivalent to league 2? :eek:
Thats a bit harsh. I reckon Bohs and Drogs could cut it in the Championship about mid to lower table.
Which is why I Stated that the top teams could cut it in the Championship! :rolleyes:

And Jazz....c'mon, financially, they're in serious trouble now. The need a sponsor
of high note to take them on...


Shelbourne Vs. Deprotivo, Oh the joyous memories of Dublin going
crazy! :rolleyes:...Such a good chance it'was
