The scale of money in soccer is WTF.
Bohs got a 10% cut of Matt Doherty's recent transfer.
Look at what just 10% can do in the real world of the League of Ireland

https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2021/0311/1203469-bohemians-investing-doherty-windfall-into-new-dcu-base/

Bohemians will invest their slice of Matt Doherty's transfer fee from Wolves to Tottenham into a new base at Dublin City University.

The League of Ireland side earned an estimated €1.7m when their former full-back switched clubs last summer, due to a 10% sell-on clause negotiated when they sold him to Wolves for €80,000 in 2010.

Bohs plan to invest €1.5m of that over the course of an 18-year lease at the DCU Sports Campus on the Ballymun Road, including building a gym, an all-weather football training pitch, meeting rooms and offices.

The club said they will work closely with the university to "further develop what is already a world-class facility", which will also continue to be used by Dublin GAA and other community groups.

"We have a strategic plan as a club, and I suppose what the Matt Doherty money enabled us to do was speed up this process," said the club's Chief Operation Officer Daniel Lambert.

The trickle down economy at its very best?

Thanks for reply. No obvious signs of a leak. Will look into the sealant stuff then. Thanks for suggestion 👍🏽

Wouldn’t be a fan of the sealant. It can cause more problems than it fixes. When coolant level continually drops it is either leaking out somewhere, mixing with the oil or getting into a cylinder and burning off in the combustion. Best thing is to find out exactly what is happening and fix it appropriately. If you don’t know how to do this bring it to someone who does.

Sound advice indeed. Mechanic found small leak. Cheap fix. Thanks again.
Always sound advice.

Wife’s CLA is demanding coolant every few weeks for this past few months to the stage now there’s nearly more coolant than petrol going in  :o

Any ideas? Expensive fix?

I've had no antifreeze in my car for 3 years, just water. Is it a fraud?

You mean in windscreen washer reservoir?

John Delaney at a soccer function I got roped into to but when I said I was a GAA man he tuned into that straightaway.

Stories about him broke soon after but to me he was very civil to talk to and didn't make out to be the big guy.

I agree with all of the above!
