Nice to know Shels have enough cash again to think about legal action. Will the league even start on time?

Waterford replace Shels in Premier Division

Waterford United have confirmed that they have accepted an invitation to replace Shelbourne in next season's eircom League Premier Division.

Shelbourne were relegated to the First Division for the coming season after an investigation by the FAI's first instance committee into their widely publicised financial problems.

Waterford received the invitation following the revocation of Shelbourne's licence to compete in the new look league and is subject to the appeals process that is currently underway.

In a statement, Waterford said: 'The club considered the proposal carefully and decided to accept the invitation in the best interests of football in Waterford and the eircom league.

'We will be meeting this evening to consider the implications for the club and with the new season just three weeks away it means that there is a lot of new work to be done.'

Waterford manager Gareth Cronin added: 'It is every manager and player's desire to compete at the highest level and Waterford United can now look forward to taking its place in the new look Premier Division.

'These are exciting times ahead and I have every confidence that we can be competitive in the new league.'

why did they make them play in a playoff? i totally take your point tho. i'm just pissed off that the whole season was a waste of time effectively, half knowing they weren't going to get in to the prem no matter what they did. and to see galway promoted instead, and now waterford, was there any point to it?

from the FAI website: "While Dundalk scored excellent marks for the 2006 season and the off-the-field criteria they were hampered by poor on-the pitch results over the previous four seasons where they ranked 19th out of the 21 clubs."

a stupid rule imo, yet dundalk didn't object to it afaik. if that's the case, how are clubs supposed to progress?

to see a team you've finished above be promoted ahead of you, and a team you beat in a playoff, who would normally be relegated, get re-promoted at your expence is a little hard to take. anyway, it doesn't matter, the club accepts the decision, and that's the way it's going to be.

Whereas Shels will probably use the courts to get the place back anyway.

This topic has been done to death at this stage they all knew what it would take both on and off the pitch. They all agreed to it so no one can have any complaints.

well they've got a manager now... Dermot Keely. Apparently he's spending the weekend looking for players, so if anybody knows anyone thats interested, get in touch with him, you'll probably get a contract!

They didn't. The 22 league clubs wanted to have it as the playoffs the last few season were very good, with four team involved in them (three from the first and one from the preimer). The FAI didn't want them to be played as they knew they would be pointless. It was on the agenda three times as the FAI had issues with it given the invite system to the new league. Obviously they saw the problems it would cause but the clubs insisted on having them.

The playoffs were a pointless exercise and had/have no bearing what so ever on the new league.

From readin the Indo it seems Shels didn't even give the FAI the info and guarantees they wanted - yet they are still in the league.

It would be bad for league soccer if Shels went out of business, but the whole thing is a tad farcical now.
