    Is O Conner any good. These two look like signings made out of desperation. Not impressed.

    How can you say its a signing made out of desperation and you are no impressed when at the same time asking is he any good? If you know nothing about him bit hard to judge no?

    Turner should never have left us. He would have had another year of solid football under his belt where as the last year at Cork was wasted in my opinion.

    Know nothing about O'Connor to be honest. Haven't really been keeping much of an eye on the premier. Needed defenders though so hopefully a good move.

    Well according to Rovers fans Dave O'Connor is just awful, great.

    We were told Vinny Faherty was awful also and Turner but they ended up doing a very good job for us and people outside of Limerick seemed to have high opinions of Folan as well when he was with us but that didn't really work out anywhere else he went. I'd take anything other people say with a grain of salt and let him try prove himself. If he turns out to be awful then Russel will have to take all the blame there.

    Ya I agree what other fans say doesn't mean much at all like other teams fans were slagging off Lee J too when he came and he has been unreal. Won't pre-judge the lad at all looked solid the few times I saw him so will just have to give him a chance and see how he does for us. We need to see a lot more of the Ian Turner from the run in the year we went down though was unplayable at time during that run but didn't get to those levels near enough and a year without playing isn't gonna do him any good.

    Squad now is

    Freddy Hall
    Shane Tracy
    Dave O'Connor
    Paul O'Conor
    Lee J Lynch
    Shane Duggan
    Ian Turner
    Chris Mulhall

    I can't stand idly by and let this Ian Turner rewriting of history go unchallenged. It's like Nuremburg around here.

    Turner made maybe 50 appearances for us. 40 of them he was ****in poisonous. One of the worst players in a really really bad Limerick team. Make no mistake he's only back because no one else wants him.

    Still a better option than Kenny mind.

    On O'Connor he can't be worse than what's there. I reserve judgement until I've seen the final squad.

    Ok bluewhitearmy. I checked him out and Rover's fans not impressed with him, so that's where my deduction of desperation comes from. Personally never thought much of Tina. But on reflection I'll give O Conner benefit of the doubt. Still though these signings not really up to the hype the club were spouting. No European challenge from the players assembled so far.

    Brendan Clarke is the 3rd. Great signing imo leaves us with two of the top keepers in the country a proper competition for number one spot on the way.

    We 100% needed another goalkeeper I dunno how you possibly think we didn't.

    Brendan Clarke is a fine signing. Will help Freddie clear up the oul mystery injuries if nothing else.

    BWA, did we really need another keeper? Surely a striker is a more important position to be filled right now.
    Nothing wrong with the two keepers we had already.
    None of the signings today have filled me with any confidence for next season.

    Are we all seriously thrilled with today's signings? personally no. That's my opinion. I thought from all the guff from management we were going to be contenders. Today says mid table mediocrity.

    We most certainly did need a keeper and I think you will be in a very small minority thinking we didn't. If you don't see the massive improvement from Tommy Holland to Brendan Clarke then you are a lost cause and that is no offence to the young lad.

    Whats your point about a striker being more important? Signing Clarke has no effect at all on getting a striker you don't get signings in order of most important first you get them as they become available. We still need a lot considering this brings us up to something like 9 players signed we need someone in every position on the pitch except goalkeeper at this minute in time.
