I don’t know if someone can make a cover letter that we can all print off, giving a basic description of the absolute shit show that has occurred, and the multiple failings of bohs, the numerous failings of the spfl and Doncaster over the past few years, and finish it up with please find attached an invoice for all travel expenses and costs occurred if not paid within 28 days we will explore legal avenues. A reckon if we done the above all sent the same letter separately to the spfl with our travel costs attached they might actually have to do something

Very good shout, however there is no way that the SPFL will shell out for it. Your talking 1,000s for our group alone never mind the rest...

Your right Scott but the bad press it would attract for them would hopefully push them towards a deal, and am sure some lawyer somewhere would be more than willing to take spfl on no win no fee cause if he won his fee would be huge

Oh your back? I though you had given up since Darren Young was the worst thing since unsliced bread! Anything to say about the manager or are you to proud?


Delighted he’s turned things round all I want is for east fife to do well at all costs hence my criticism for mr young in which I was not alone. I pay at the gate like everybody else and I’m entitled to voice my own opinion weather you agree or not. last season was an absolute disgrace as was the last 6months of the season before, anybody saying other wise is dreaming. In my opinion and others he should have been gone, east fife disagreed, they’ve reaped the rewards as have the fans, never have I been more delighted to be wrong. U must be purring like a kitten.

When it should get played is the difficult one. The obvious one would be to play this  next Saturday (09/02/19) to allow the following Friday’s (15/02/19) TV game to be unaffected (have Bos provisionally booked their flights for that one?)

I highly doubt it as 15/02/19 is scheduled to be their first league game at home to Finn Harps.

Seriously lads, never heard such nonsense and moaning from a bunch of supporters. Looking for Bohemians to be thrown out of the competition because of an unplayable pitch on the coldest weekend for years. 

East Fife fans aren't the first set of fans to travel to a postponed game, and you won't be the last.

Should have gone ahead on 17th November when the other quarters were played and the game was scheduled for then... the pitch was certainly fine on that date!

Your problem should really be with the organisers, If they are inviting clubs to play in a competition, take 15 minutes to google when the League of Ireland runs from. We don't play in November December and January, it's as simple as that. 

When we do play in February, sadly we have no control of the weather.

You shouldn't be accepting an invite to a tournament that takes place in months you don't play either.

Its not our job to tell your FA how to run their competitions, they were obviously aware of the situation and were fine with it. 

Why should it be up to us to say its not a good idea?

Regardless of whether Bohemians should be included in a Scottish tournament, whether or not it was the coldest weekend for years...it doesn’t explain why they left it until minutes before the game to call it off.  The decision could and should have been made earlier, ie the day before. A bit of common sense/foresight (check weather forecast!) and decency was required. It doesn’t reflect well on Bohemians as a club

You are spot on - we are not the first and won’t be the last to travel to a postponed game.
However I think the circumstances are a bit different to a normal league fixture. fans had spent a hell of a lot of money, time and effort to get to Dublin so I think they are entitled to be unhappy about the lack of effort on behalf of your club to get the game on.
Why did Bohemians take no precautions to ensure the game would be played ? Covers or alternative venue ?
Why when the groundsman marking the pitch at 10.30 am who spoke with an East Fife fan and told him the pitch was solid in front of the stand, not alert the club to ask for an early inspection and give time to find an alternative venue for a 3.00 pm kick off ?
Why did the club deny the game was in doubt when we were waiting to enter the stadium about 2.00pm ? The Referee was not for the game going ahead at 1.30 when he arrived but agreed to give them time. What steps did Bohemians take at that time to try to get the game on ? Letting players warm up in the area ? Bohemians knew the game was not going to go ahead and allowed fans into the ground for only one reason - to fill their bars so they could make money !
Between fans and partners, family who were not at the ground, the trip will have cost well over 100k between them. And don’t give me the fact that ‘oh well, they’ll have had a good time in Dublin’ Virtually none if any of the Fife fans would have been in Dublin this weekend if it hadn’t‘ been for the fact that our team were playing or due to play Bohemians. East Fife and their fans are the only ones who have lost out through this game. Bohemians have made money from it and that should be all they get from this competition.

Again people seem to be under the impression that Bohs called off the game.

It was called off by a Welsh referee with the SFA and FAI reps who wanted  to leave it as late as possible to give the game as much chance as possible.

I fail to see how this is the responsibilty of Bohemians. We had zero say in wether the game went ahead or not.

Utter shite!!!
The Met Office will supply weather forecasts days in advance for you, did any of the incompetents at your Club think to check them, did nobody at your Club think;
"here, it's a bit cold this week better check that our pitch will be up to it after all these guys aren't coming from along the road, they're paying a lot of money to travel a lot of miles to attend this game and we don't want to be shown up as a bunch of 2nd rate amateurs and we better show some professional nous here and do everything in our power to make sure this game goes ahead whether it means getting the pitch covered up in time to protect it or failing that give these guys plenty of notice so that they are able to cancel any travel or accommodation plans they may have in place"
Or was it more like
"Ah Paddy will be opening the place up at one o'clock, we'll get him to look at it"
Think everybody knows now what option your Club took and that is why you should be kicked out of the tournament, in fact you should be fucking fined!!!

Levelling a lot of accusations there against Bohs.

No club in Ireland uses covers, I suspect not a whole lot of clubs in the lower regions of Scotish football do either.

Dublin isn't overloaded with all weather pitches that can accomodate up to 3000 fans at short notice.

Do you think the sitution would really have been made better by shutting the bars so as not to be seen to be making money? Really?
