    That's certainly the inference of what RH has suggested.

    Equally if what RH has said about his parents insisting he finishes school next year is true, then no matter how "absolutely ridiculous" the offer, Rovers obviously could not transfer him without his agreement - unless of course they could persuade him and his parents otherwise

    Not a chance of him being pressured to go , everything the club are preaching day in day out in the academy is that the path to success in England is staying here doing your leaving and going over as a pro on a decent contract , not getting shipped off by joeys or Kevin's to an English academy for buttons.

    Are you suggesting that Rovers should accept it and then put pressure on the parents or kid to change their minds?

    That's not at all what I'm saying. I'm saying accept the offer but since his parents are insistent on him staying any offer would obviously be a case of the actual move happening after his LC as has been the case so far.

    I'd appreciate it if you stopped putting words in my mouth Ez

    I think his parents are spot on about him staying and doing his leaving cert, its not like if he is signed by spurs he is going into the first team.

    Would not argue with you on that but if shams can make a serious wedge would they not try to persuade them ?

    Would genuinely be shocked everything they preach to the kids up there is about getting your education done.
    Getting late in the day anyway and still no sign of a move so looks like he is staying.

    So looks like Bazunu will be off to join man City in January - Rovers getting a fee of €350k.

    Sad to see him leave so young. I would rather he completed 40-50 games at senior level before moving abroad. Ideally he could sign for them and them be loaned back for 18-24 months. He'll probably just be another number swallowed up by the massive City academy now.

    Still too small a fee in my opinion too. I would have held out for closer to half a mill. Given his potential i really think he's worth that much.

    Paper never refuses ink, i'll wait until the club says something before I believe it.
    either the fee part or the departure date.

    Seperately if Gary McCabe has left Bray where can he sign ? NIFL I suppose

    yeah thats what Sun says. the catch with McCabe is his sending off recently. if he stays down south he has to serve his suspension and may have to wait a while before playing.

    I'd almost bet my house that was a deliberate sending off, to make Bray more likely to make a settlement with him so he can head up north for a while.

    I would have thought he can't sign for any LOI club as the window has closed so its NIFL or Leinster senior league.
    I'd agree with Philosophizer re deliberate sending off , it looked completely like that, even the Bray players looked ****ed off with him

    He must be a real headstrong chap - not only defying his parents, but going against the wishes of the Shamrock Rovers academy as well.

    Maybe he could take his books with him and come home to sit his leaving cert in June?

    Well, he had a grin on his face coming off, so make of that what you will.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Bit of an indictment of Shiels' talent spotting prowess.

    DERRY CITY Chairman Philip O’Doherty has revealed a new transfer policy has been put in place at the Brandywell club.

    I think it surprising that there appears to have been little speculation about being replaced.

    There's enough fans who would be more than happy to see that happen.

    Good news that the club are going to take a more active role in looking into our signings.
    There's been so much money wasted.
