    It gets us every year.

    In the build up to the start of the season, you are glued to websites, scanning for info on your team - signings, injuries, wild speculation, anything...anything at all which will sate your hunger for news. This season, the off-field shenanigans of a few clubs, ludicrously drawn out over a few months in Cork's case, provided some off-season sustenance.

    But on the Limerick FC front, things were atypically quiet. That could be a good thing - last season, we parted ways with our manager just a couple of weeks before the season started, and lost a couple of our first team at the same time. On the other hand, the quiet also suggested that Limerick's transfer activiy had been fair limited, with the loss of Steven O'Flynn to Northampton town the only bit of business that made the radar (well, my radar at least). There were a couple of promising results in friendlies, most notably a 1-1 draw in Inchicore. Words from those who had travelled suggested that we'd be difficult to break down at the back. Words also that we were feeling the loss of O'Flynn. But theses are freindlies, league games are the only real litmus test.
