    My two-weekly check on Cambridge tells me he played again last weekend in a 2-2 draw with York, fans seem fairly happy with him, scored a goal in a friendly with Colchester recently too apparently: http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/Rory...ail/story.html

    Made sure to (very drunkenly) let him know that in Limerick a few years ago.

    And I'm sure it was the first time he had heard that!

    When a few drinks are consumed, every joke is hilarious, not to mention completely original.

    Reminds me of a moment on Soccer AM a few years back (Tim Lovejoy days, so a while ago) ...

    HC Something something something Shaun Derry.
    TL Did you know that he name is really Shaun Londonderry, but it was to long for the back of his shirt
    HC Oh really?
    TL No...

    Hi all, I run a Bristol Rovers fans podcast and we have just signed Rory on loan. Made his debut on Saturday and impressed a few though was unlucky to have a goal dissallowed.

    I was wondering if I could get any comments from you all on what we can expect from Rory at Rovers. His strengths, weaknesses, etc. Anything you can give me would be awesome!

    Thanks in advance,

    Harley

    As the poster above me will happily know, Gaffney has scored 4 goals in his last two games for Bristol Rovers since his loan move. This has given Bristol 2-1 and 2-0 wins.

    They are 5th in the table, 6 places and 7 points above Cambridge.

    Indeed & I suspect Harley will now be in a better position to comment on his strengths and weaknesses than we are!!

    Welcome,

    I'd be surprised if he didn't have goals at that level in him if he can stay injury free long enough to establish himself, but that perhaps is the if when it comes to him

    Pacey powerful player, and not without a bit of skill too. Enjoyed watching him play always at Limerick.

    That should be the end of his loan spell though. Maybe they'll sign him in the transfer window.

    Apparently Cambridge have done a u-turn over a proposed free transfer to Bristol Rovers and are now demanding a fee: http://www.bristolpost.co.uk/BRISTOL...ail/story.html

    Rory joined Bristol Rovers today on a permanent deal after paying 'an undisclosed fee' to Cambridge.

    Hopefully he keeps scoring.

    Couldn't blame them for seeking a fee, in fairness. And it suits the player himself as Rovers are well above Cambridge, who could have shown a bit more faith in him.

    He's got a goal ever 116 minutes this season which is very impressive: http://int.soccerway.com/players/rory-gaffney/74916/

    It would be a huge Gaff not to seek a fee.
