    Conor Ellis has left Limerick. Would be a decent get for one of the promotion chasing FD teams, or even a lower PD one.

    Sadly, no we don't.

    Can't agree with the financial outlay situation either - no-one is going to pay all of his wages in any case : all we potentially save is say 500 (guess) per week for 6 months - thats 13k off a wage bill maximum. Who is going to come in (thats available ) and do a better job than Cummins for that sort of money. Again if Cummins gets a goal in Europe and 6 more goals in the league - if we can sneak 4th and get into Europe then he will be worth every penny. Getting rid of him looks penny wise and Pound foolish to me. Not to mind the signal it sends to the rest of the club.

    Agree re. Cummins. He may have turned out to be a poor man's Hoban but who are Cork get who is better for the few quid they can save on the wage bill. The move only makes sense if Cork are in dire straits and have written off the rest of the season.

    On a more positive note, it's great to have Andy Boyle back at Dundalk. If we want to get better, players of Andy's quality are hard to come by and have to be snapped up.

    We badly need a finisher but I don’t know if he’d be willing to travel.

    They're cutting back cause I imagine they have a giant 240k hole in their budget from lost Europa revenue...

    Those are some enormous ifs. Yes, if he got us through Europe and 4th place in the league he'd be worth the money. It seems highly speculative and unlikely to see that happening though.

    I don't think there's any suggestion we would let him go and keep paying his wages. If he's going to Rovers for example it would be a move. In that situation, wed be saving a lot more than 500 a week.

    Can we replace him? With how he's playing currently and has been all season, it really wouldn't take much. But I'd imagine the most likely is that shep would go up top. Better? No. Worse? Questionable. Worth the money difference, possibly.

    I certainly wouldn't be overly concerned to lose him. Genuinely don't think we can get much worse. Which isn't something you'd expect to be saying about your highest earner. I'd imagine many people feel similar.

    Hardly an enormous if to think he might get 6 more league goals this season, he has 4 goals in 12 starts so far (5 sub) - there is still 15 games to go and he did score the last day. People are too quick to write him off - our problems lie deeper on the field.

    I've binned a page and a half of stuff that's pretty grey on the legal front, plus a link to a site that looks like it's run by lunatics. (Lunatics with noble intent I'm sure, but lunatics nonetheless.) Please keep it to football, and don't post that link again.

    I didn't believe the Cummins one at first but it seems to be sticking. Not sure what to think of it. Obviously he's a good player and knows where the goal is but can't figure out how he'd fit into our team, and we'd presumably be paying him to live up here.

    If thats true its two great signings in Gary o Neill and niall farrugia. The Cummins one makes sense too as Aaron greene is missing too many chances but at the same time brings a huge amount to the game in terms of linking play and assists so Cummins will need to score regularly to justify his place.

    Cummings would be a great fit for Rovers and regarding his lack of goals, give him an alrite wage but whack a decent goal bonus onto it and then surely it's win win for Rovers. Pity to see the UCD team being ripped apart again. If Sloggett and O'Connor stayed for the prem campaign it could have been a different story but thats every season so they are well used to it i suppose!

    If anything, the UCD squad hasn't been ripped apart enough.
