    Unfortunately probably the last examples. Big Sam really worked a miracle though as there was no investment that season. We had a really good side under Noel King with money but it all fell away.

    In the 1980's the club and players were better than some of the seasons suggest. Challenged for the title in 83/84 but fell away. should have reached the Cup final and Europe in 1985 (still hurts). 88/89 we were really good but Derry won the treble - Drogheda cup shock probably cost us Europe. Once the Graces left it was downhill with the club just trying to survive.

    If we can keep that squad together no reason why we can't get promotion in 2018

    At what stage does it become more sane to be worried rather than positive.

    This is really really poor from limerick all the talk about signing quality to compete for a European spot as it stands we are relegated.

    Hard to know what the story is at the moment. If the club are trying hard to sign decent players and just can't convince them to sign or they decide to go elsewhere their isn't a whole pile they can do. If they are not trying very hard and are looking at cheaper options or players that have played before with us and struggled then questions need to be asked.

    Woo Pat Scully and Jow Gamble to take over half way through the season for another attempt at "The Great Escape". Interesting...

    I was fine with the going for great players and just losing out at the start but its getting to the stage now where questions need to be asked why there weren't more realistic alternatives being considered too. Missing out on a great player and ending up with a good one is fine but missing out on a great player and ending up with some crap one or nothing at all is utter stupidity on someones part. Russell said in November he was looking to England for players so he has had 2 months to go and get em that means the whole we are just back to pre season thing is no excuse at all 2 months and not a single sign of anyone from England being around the place and in that time we have either not bothered to get in touch with or turned down the chance to sign decent LOI players including strikers which we are in desperate need of.

    I am trying my best to be positive and stay positive but its getting harder and harder. No social media stuff at all from the club to get any kind of buzz going for the new season not even a pre season game announced yet no sign of these players from England and the quality of the trialists we have had in and the second 11 in the game the other morning is hardly inspiring. Its really hard to stay positive when almost everything about this pre season is the same as the season we went down its scarily similar so far. I won't write the season off just yet I still think we are 4 good signings away from a very good season and I will hold out hope for another while that they will come but my god fans need a bit of good news soon.

    So in your opinion, would the present squad stay up even ?

    I am club side on this usually, on here. Very much. I keep hoping they will suddenly unveil three exciting players together one day to boost everyone but it's not happened so far.

    If we had luck with injuries we could stay up I reckon but one or two key players get injured at the minute and we are gone.

    What are the chances of our best 11 staying injury free for the season...with the squad the way it is at the moment we're down but I also heard today that there are signings lined up....maybe it's true this time

    It needs to be and they need to be good I really hope they are the names I've heard recently.

    As we are, we would stay up, even with 3 going down. Obviously hoping for the last few squad members to improve the quality and push us up the table.

    Thats a bit pathetic tbf. Surely a quick interview with one of the players or Martin about the start of pre season even would do just to get something out there.

    That unnerves me a bit. Who covers the club social media, and why aren't they posting? Is anyone doing it? POS would be better served handling the marketing side of the club than writing out grandiose Christmas messages.

    What would concern me is it's an area they were good, busy & informative. It's an odd time to be saying nothing at all.

    If you've got nothing good to say say nothing at all, seems to be the tact they are currently using.
