Oh feck it, why not... none of these are 100% but they'll have to do you lot...
Phillip Purcell (Full-back and brother of Pat)
Some keeper from Sligo (supposed to be good but was only on the bench for them last year)
Full-back from St.Michaels in Tipp. Also reputed to be pretty excellent
Declan Considine (weighing up Limerick and Kilkenny as we speak)
Some Dublin City ex?
Stephen O'Flynn :)
Supposed to be another few as well but we won't know until we go snooping at one of their training sessions. We will...
Great news if Deckie comes back. i remember him fom Rathbane days and he always gave 100%. SLK any news on the meeting ?

Not yet JohnD, gael is trying to track down John Purcell but I suspect that they want to get the ground nailed down before meeting us to prevent any of our thoughts on that being relevant.
Sound. Thanks for that, cant wait already for the new season.

Is the St Michaels player called Mark Tobin? He plays for St Michaels - I saw them a couple of times last season (my in-laws are from Tipp and live near the ground). He is an outstanding left full - I belive he is on the internatinal squad, but could be corrected on that. If it is one and the same then this will turn out to be the signing of the season and I could confidently lay a small wager for next year's player of the season.
The only problem is that Michael's right full is a bit of a stick. :)

I'm pretty sure it was their left-full who was mentioned LFCIE, didn't get a name but almost sure it was their left-back. It's not concrete yet but we've been talking to him alright.

That list you gave SLK looks pretty encouraging.If O'Connor can bring all them in he has done well.Considine is a very competent winger and is badly needed and always played for the shirt.The new left back sounds good too
Declan was always a great trier and we need full backs. I may be crazy but i feel optimistic already...must take the tablets!!:p
Any news as to when we will play our Home matches Weekends or midweek ?

what is the muppet playing at now? He is bringing in a pack of junior players who are duds and where are these seasoned LOI players he promised who were NOT local. What kind of a fool is he?

You have no credibility left.
You wanted new full backs - two are signed (one of which is a junior international - I bet Waterford weren't complaining about Ryan Cosgrave being a junior player before he signed for them).
A keeper - from another eL club - non-local. A position in which we need cover.
Someone to fight with Shane for the right midfield spot.
Keeping Stephen O'Flynn.
The Dublin City player we cannot comment on except to say that he is a NON-LOCAL.
Criticism is one thing. But when O'Connor acts in a way that you have been calling for all season and you still criticise one must wonder what your real agenda is.
You're not George W. in disguise by any chance?

.... definately signed or is this all just waffle and smokescreens?
04/03/2003, 8:54 AM
They've all been approached anyway and are all more likely to sign than not. I think the keeper is 100% now as is O'Flynn. Purcell is about 90% certain and the others all look good bets. Apparently there are other players being checked out too but I have no idea who they are at the moment.

Some more news. We've signed Brian Morris-Roe (ex St.Pats, Rovers, Dundalk, Athlone et al.) and the Sligo keeper is called Healy. Morris-Roe has a hell of alot of experience and scored a cracker against us for Athlone a coupla years ago. Club are also meeting Pike and FAI tomorrow.
SLK Your'e amazing. You are quite a newshound..Thanks for single handedly keeping us all up to date boy!!:D

And before I forget Derek Whyte has retired from senior football this season. And Colm Heffernan will not be missing this season. Heard a few rumours about players who have been released but because they're only rumours I don't want to give any names yet. And John, check your e-mail account boy!
OK message received loud and clear!!..This work thing has me too busy!!..going to check now John
