    He supposedly played 85mins, no idea how he got on though. Dundalk will be entitled to compo as he was under 23,at the club for 2 years & got offered a new deal before the old one was up, not that it would be that big of an amount of compo either way.

    I guess he gets a thread here (and an inevitable call up to the Irish squad) now that his move to Brighton is confirmed?

    Paul Corry got a thread but no call up I am afraid. Big step up to the higher reaches of the Championship. Fingers crossed.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    In fairness, Richie Towell is ten times the player of Paul Corry.

    What do the seasoned LOI supporters think of his chances? I've only seen him the odd time I'm sitting down watching telly and there's a Dundalk match on and he's clearly a very impressive footballer. I've heard discussion before that suggests the Dundalk side was built around him and gave him every opportunity to prosper. I find it interesting that he was right back at Hibs and is now a free-scoring midfielder. Will he go to Brighton as a number 10 or a number 8?

    Has a decent chance on making the squad as for the team I'd say he is too attacking for MON.

    Lets wait and see how he does against a better standard of opposition. I think it's a pretty good transfer for him though.

    the42.ie has a youtube collage of all his 25 goals last season. Worth watching.

    As I was clearly unaware that he was a midfielder yesterday (I assumed due to his sheer number of goals he was a forward) maybe my view isn't to be taken too seriously, but he looks very much like he has Frank Lampard's ability to arrive in advanced positions unmarked and an equally Lampard-like ability to find the net from 15-23 yards. Crisp, accurate first time shooting. Good technique too in a few volleyed side footers, keeping the ball down well.

    That's an amazing asset to have.

    That video is also on the Brighton site that Tets linked above. Brighton are still unbeaten which is phenomenal really given the nature of the Championship, particularly remarkable considering they were pretty poor last season. I'd still have them as outsiders for automatic from what I have seen, I'd say the top two will be between Hull, Middlesbrough, Derby and Burnley. I see they have loaned James Wilson from Manchester United too though, you'd imagine he should be fairly prolific at that level if he has any real aspirations of making the grade at Old Trafford. Towell will really have to hit the ground running to have any hope of regular football there this season, it's so difficult to gauge the level he's actually at. Being the best player in the LOI doesn't necessarily mean he has the best chance to make it over there, some players are just better suited to making these transitions. Best of luck to him.

    Excellent move for him and it paid off staying in the LOI for another year. If it works out for him, there's a massive chance he'll be playing EPL football in just over half a year's time.
