Hull interested, cost estimated at 800000 pounds: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/footba...ansfer-9337502
Went looking for this thread, didn't think I would have to create it myself, if it's already some where else I apologise.
Anyway he's pretty good at the old football. Here's a nice goal admittedly against some no mark Russians
My understanding is, is that Horgan will be a free transfer once Dundalk get knockout of Europe
I read that it was Kilbane who recommended some of the Dundalk lads to Simon Grayson.
Can't link but Google "Newstalk killer on Boyle".
Poor move for Horgan in my opinion. Looked like he already belongs at a higher level
No reason Hourihane shouldn't be playing at that level by January either, but he won't be.
It's getting harder and harder for an Irish player to get concrete interest from teams at that level.
Most moves (like Wilson's failed move to Bournemouth) are lateral.
Any players that make the step up seem to be doing so with promoted teams.
Is it fair to say there are 6 players that could be considered guaranteed starters? Whelan - and perhaps Walters - at Stoke, Ward and Hendrick at Burnley, Coleman at Everton and Arter at Bournemouth.
3 of those players are in their thirties.
It's a dodgy situation.
The days of Sunderland having 6 or 7 Irish in a match day squad are long gone. Hopefully Preston can continue to push for a playoff place.
I'd be interested in the T&Cs of the contract though. I would say they're more likely to see game time there than Towell was when he moved to Brighton. A two and a half year deal and a successful first season gives them great leverage to step up again. (Not necessarily to a premiership club though given the recent trends. More likely Championship or promotion contender.)
Horgan on the bench for Preston's F.A. Cup match with Arsenal this evening, along with Browne and Doyle. Cunningham and McGeady start.
Game on BT Sport, should be streams available from the usual sources
How now Browne cow.
On for the last ten minutes. Browne came on earlier too.
Seriously enthusiastic start already!
Three very good touches within a minute of coming on and home fans have taken to him it seems.
He's on fire from the 'get-go'.
Linked up lovely with McGeady down the left there with a give and go and then took a heavy touch to knock it over the line. Disappointing. Home fans were encouraging in response to it.
