    Waterford would want to have rocks in their head to let Hery go. Their best performer and one of about 2 or 3 they actually have under contract at the moment.
    I would find that strange why Waterford would be interested in taking a player who has been injured for 3/4 of the season and swapping him with a a guy in a lot of people's team of the year even with a cash plus deal.

    Ps Jack, with respect, Pats have to be realistic where they are, you finished 5th but only after a late surge, I think Shaw is a more than decent addition for Pats for 2019. If I was in a similar position as say when Dundalk were just OK under Foster (2010 and 2011) finishing 5th and 6th, I'd be having a player like this to improve things.

    I had heard that took a while to resolve but it was resolved eventually. Drinan left us in very strange circumstances last summer and Waterford have still not paid what is owed. I don't know if the Browne situation has been resolve but if not then that is over 18 months now

    For sure, I definitely don't have any delusions about the level of player we should be signing - we were extremely "lucky" to finish 5th this season after all.

    More so echoing the point of the general lack of strikers in the league that guarantee you goals. That's probably the one thing we lacked this season more than anything and as much as I agree Shaw's a better option than what we had he still doesn't necessarily promise that.

    Gotta love silly season! Hery and Aborah were both very impressed that every team in the Premier Division tried to play passing football....except Cork. Neither has good things to say about how they play. Bastien is a baller - can't wait to see him with us again next year.

    A late surge can ofcourse help your final position but it can sometimes be misleading going into the following season. Dundalk finished 5th** from 10 in the bizzare Sean Conor single season of 2009, but only for a last day win and 2 other odd results we were heading for 8th, 7th at best. This was backed up by 6th and 7th finishes (from 12) the two seasons after.

    ** that 5th finish incredibly qualified Dundalk for Europe as both Cork and Derry were relegated / removed to FD.

    Back on actual signings, seems Dundalk are interested in taking Aaran McCarey from Warrenpoint to replace Sava. Still appears to be links on McEneff, but not on Sadlier, I'd think he'll have options in L1 or possibly championship. I don't get the Hery link at all. He's under contract, Waterford would be looking for serious money.

    saw the northern ireland coverage at weekend and saw McCarey make a top class save from a peno for Warrenpoint... he would be a great signing for Dundalk!

    Hery on instagram thingy - “Here’s to another season @waterfordfc 🔵”


    People seemingly heard Hery’s interview on LOIweekly and got excited as he mentioned about clubs in Europe paying players for 52 weeks. Then automatically assumed he was fishing for a move away

    The account BastienHery last posted before the account with Bastien_Hery a/c posted its first post. Plus past and present team mates also liked the post. Looks like his new account to me

    Not sure where you're getting the late surge from. We were between 5th and 7th for most of the season if memory serves me right, in fact we probably spent most time in fifth (though I'm no statto so open to correction there.)Anyway, it's not like we surged up three or four places in the last few weeks. You could equally say that were it not for a rotten run mid season we could have been close to challenging for Europe. (Not saying we deserved that btw, as they say the table doesn't lie and I think where we finished was about right.)
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Good to see the two lads resigning as well, McCourt looked very tidy in the Pats game and could well have a role either in defence or midfield. Mageurson has been very unlucky with injuries so hopeful get an injury free run to finally fulfill the bags of potential he has shown in his stop/start career to date.

    Think he’ll be a big loss, there isn’t much in terms of quality strikers in the league. He pushed us over the line to get the fourth spot. Hoping we get Duffus permanently and get him firing again

    Keeper looks like a replacement for Supple who has announced his retirement due to ongoing injury.

    Huge news to see Supple retire. Big loss to Bohs. Best goalkeeper in the league by some distance.

    Yes, big loss. Great keeper and a team leader on and off the field.
