    The INCREDIBLE Conor Sammon

    That's just how he was described on Sky News.

    8 goals in 6 games for Kilmarnock now.

    Fairplay to him.
    Davd, the winds blown, the winds blown, all of my dreams away.

    I'm in complete amazement of his goal machine antics

    3 years ago the lad could be barely control or head the ball or finish while playing for UCD

    In fairness to Conor, he's an immensely hard working player and he was always determined to make it in UK. He probably needed a manager to give him a bit of confidence and Paatelainen has done that, not only with Sammon but the entire Kilmarnock team

    Ireland cap HAS to be coming down the line, he's the type of strong forward player Trappatoni would love if he wasn't so relucant to give young players a chance ala Coleman
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians

    Definitely. I wish people would stop calling for players to be getting international caps just because the score goals in one of the worst leagues in Europe. Sammon was brutal in LoI, now he scores for fun in SPL. Stokes scored 1 in 25 games in the Championship and was absolute cr@p overall, yet scores for fun in the SPL.

    Sammon wasn't brutal in the LoI; he was just over-rated. Important difference.

    I like the way the top three scorers in Scotland are a Rangers player, a former UCD player and the brother of a former UCD player.

    Don't remember him much against Rovers, but I was at the UCD v Longford cup semi final and how Sammon managed to miss so many chances and sitters was indeed incredible.

    Tell all the Bohs you know
    that we've gone and won two-in-a-row
    and it's not gonna be three
    and it's not gonna be four
    it's more likely to be 5-1.

    I had about two years of every single opposition fan telling me how great Sammon had just played. He was definitely over-rated! And he was our top scorer in 2007, so he wasn't that crap either.

    13 goals in 69 games for UCD, what's that, 1 goal every 5 & half games?

    That's not bad for us. Especially as he didn't score in his first season, got 8 in 35 (incl Cups) in the second and then 11 in 39 in the third, so he was obviously improving. He was over-rated, yes; frustrating, yes; but crap? No. That's just revisionism. Or poetic licence at best.

    Also, I mustn't have been talking to you. Seriously though, any opposition fan I was speaking to who commented on a UCD v whoever game picked Sammon out as our best player. It's still a source of amusement (bemusement?) among most of us to this day.
