    Bit of talk now that Russell has been offered a new deal is his current one up at the end of this season? I just hope whatever he and the club decide it gets sorted quickly prem teams get business done early these days and we will need to start working on a squad for next year straight away if we are to push on.

    You can only beat what's put In front of you. To fire him now without even giving a shot at the premier would be incredibly harsh.

    He had a shot at premier, we got relegated. Now I am not saying I want him sacked but its not comparable to what happened Pat Scully.

    I was more comfortable with Scully in charge going into the PD than I am with Russell. Scully stumbled a bunch of times, but still topped a better FD than Russell has had to deal with.

    Not that I was crying when Scully was sacked, but I'd rate his win over Russell's.

    For all the talk of integrity within the club they'll be showing precious little of it if Russell is shoved out the door. To get rid of your division winning manager once can happen, to do it twice would have a very faint whiff of Cellino about it. Given that Allardyce didn't follow the team up when he got us promoted have we ever come out of the second tier with the person who oversaw the promotion itself?
    The ball is round and has many surprises.

    Would he walk rather than get fired?

    Crowd tonight will tell a tale. I think we've started another one of our long goodbyes ala kerley ala scully ala taylor it's gone sour and its not going to get any better.

    I get the impression from Russell that he is as fed up of us as a section of us are of him to be honest. Some of the stick he has gotten has been warranted, some of it has been absolutely ****in shameful aswell. Lot of players at the club who could do with being a tiny bit more honest with themselves aswell.

    As usual though the managers job shenanigans are just a sideshow. It all depends on what the gears in pat o sullivans head are set up for on any particular day. He talks of Europe like a man with a plan but you'd wonder how much he knows about the game.

    If we go up with the same budget you're looking at 6th to 9th. If we lower the budget because someone looks at pat the wrong way you're looking at 10th to 12th and if we significantly increase the budget you're looking at top 5/challenging for Europe.

    And ultimately that will be the case whether the manager is Martin Russell, Russell Crowe or a Jack Russell.

    From a few reports going around people seem to think Russell is as good as gone was mentioned on a radio station in Dublin too.Sounds a bit like its as much him wanting to go as it is the club letting him go. If he does go I hope we get a replacement in quickly would be great to get some business done early like last season. Great to already have the likes of Lee J and Duggy tied down for next season.

    Hopefully sorted in the next week or two which or whether. It could give Russel or someone else a chance to watch a few premier games and size up some signings and pounce early.

    Looks like Rovers and Galway are sorted now so Russells options are probably us and if Pats sack Buckley.

    More chance of Dundalk sacking Kenny than Pats sacking Buckley.

    I didn't bother to go look for it but didn't someone say in this that one of the reasons we should keep Russell was his ability to attract top players or something along those lines......I hope that is coming in January from the UK.

    I did and my God does it seem to be going the opposite way. Unless he can unearth some gems it seems he is struggling to attract players. Now there could be a variety of reasons for that like getting offered more money, lack of players wanting to actually play for Limerick.

    Well I spoke to one player that spoke to us and he said a large reason he turned us down was because Martin just did not have the ability to speak to him at all. I won't quote what he actually said cos I think it could be seen as a personal attack on Martin but it did not sound good. Even players that have worked with him have said he is a great coach with a great style of play but an awful man manager.

    Why didn't they leave negotiations up to someone more suitable or does it have to be the manager who handles such things.

    Have to let the manager have control really if he wants it I think I mean if you don't trust him to sign his own squad why give him the job. Or if you mean negotiations as in money and that I'd imagine a manager would want to at least be involved in that to gauge a players attitude etc.
