    Kenny states in today's Derry News that we'll be signing Mark McCrystal from Distillery.
    Kenny will be talking to Farren this week about signing him up too.

    Emmet Friars said he wants to sign for us, but I very much doubt we'll be paying Newry anything to release him from his contract.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Wasn't great last year imo. Always tried but lacked the ability. Good in the air as he's tall but that's about it.

    Glasnevin Red, is being too nice because he's like that but i can tell you that Derek "Donkey" Doyle is one of the worst players to play for us since we came down and we've had some awful players.

    He's a winger but he couldn't beat an egg. His touch is about as subtle an elephant. He couldn't pass water and that lad who was shot dead in Pearse Street for being in the wrong place at the wrong time has better positioning than him.

    He really is that awful.

    No need to wink, it's well known Gill likes him and wants him in at Pats. If he'd been contracted to Shels, i'd pay you lot to take him off us.

    That is one of the best descriptions of a bad player ever.

    Yep. That's about the standard we aimed for on the wings at UCD back when he was playing for us. The defence would occasionally slice a ball in his direction. Conor Salmon would jump for the cross with all the timing of a sundial on a cloudy day. Then, Doyle would hoof the ball in the direction of the small of his back, from where it would occasionally bounce nicely for Paul Byrne to score, injuring himself in the process. It wasn't pretty, but it kept us up.
    Vaccinated.

    Doyle going to Pats should see them challenging for the A league title in about 2 years time

    Haha that's optimistic... Ah to be fair.. We've had Fitzpatrick for about 3 seasons and not got relegated...

    Doyle is a shocking player. Nothing compared to Fitzpatrick.

    I hope if Derek Doyle reads this forum that he has a strong character ..
    What Hairy Bowsie missed out mentioning above is that there is an excellent marksman walking the streets of Dublin, has he been signed up yet ??

    I'd say it has more to do with Mahon. Doyle was one of his favourites when he was UCD manager, started every week despite been absolutely dire.

    If he applies himself and puts in a bit of effort while on the pitch he could be a very good player at this level, has the talent and capabilities to get into double figures for a season and more. Hasn't been arsed since 2007 though which is a shame as he actually is quite a good player.

    Saw those two on the PFAI list today and was surprised that I hadn't heard anything about Mahon going for them. Shane Fitzgerald is on the list too, can't imagine you'll get anymore misfortune. Whatever about Mahon being able to get the best out of young players coming through his ability at judging players' current ability is shocking.

    While his attitude has been criticised, he's also very injury-prone. Not that the two are completely independent, but I think injuries have made the difference between him being a very good player and... well, whatever he's actually become - I've not seem much of him lately.

    Regarding Mahon and Doyle, I don't think there was anyone better than Doyle at the club, so it's harsh on Mahon.
    Vaccinated.
