Dundalk in the Champions League would be a bit like Father Ted singing “My Lovely Horse” at the Eurovision Song Contest, according to experts.
The League of Ireland side stunned Belarusian giants BATE Borisov with a 3-0 win in the first leg of their qualifier, guaranteeing them Europa League football at least.
A host of top professionals immediately set about projecting what Dundalk in the Champions League might look like, coming up with the following:
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Swotty McLabcoat, an expert in expertology from the Experts Guild, explained the findings.
He said: “As the dream sequence illustrates, Father Ted singing ‘My Lovely Horse’ at Eurovision would have been fantastical stuff.
“What we also learn is that, despite social media crackdowns on anything even remotely likely to upset someone, it’s still fine to rip on the Irish.
“As such, anything they do or achieve may still be immediately compared to something out of Father Ted, and we expect this to continue for some time.
“The moment someone sets up an online petition in protest is the moment the internet will be officially rebranded ‘Safe Space’.
“But for now, please enjoy this cheap and tacky excuse for satire.”
At the time of writing, Dundalk are yet to complete a deal to sign Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez.
