    I didn't realise Supple was playing with an injury. Is this a surprise to Bohs fans or something that was feared/expected?

    Massive loss for bohs but even a die hard rovers fan can't take any pleasure out of this.
    Gutted for the lad always admired him.

    Terrible shame to see Supple retire. He was an excellent player, and a great ambassador for the league.

    Do Bohs still have McCabe as a keeper too? I guess it will be McCabe and the new guy battling for the number 1 jersey next season?

    Gutting news about Supple, the league is worse off without him. Handily one of the best players in the league and a good character to boot. Will take some job replacing him.

    Terrible news that only 31 ,for a keeper that would mean he had a good few years left in him yet.

    Maybe he's just retiring to get out of a contract so he can sign for Rovers?

    Seriously though, it's a pity to see one of the better players in the league retire early. It's thrown a bit of a cruve ball at Bohs too, presumably a keeper wasn't high on the shopping list before this.

    It must be devastating for him to be forced to retire so young, particularly when he opted out of the game for so long after his first retirement on his return from England.

    It certainly presents Keith Long with yet more unwanted challenges to replace key players

    He was the best goalkeeper at Bohs by some distance and possibly even the best goalkeeper at a Dublin club last season.

    His fellow pros thought he 2qs the best keeper in the league last season. If you have to go out, that's a nice way to finish.

    Best keeper in the league over the course of the season by a mile but nice subtle attempt at a dig there.

    Even as a Rovers fan it's a shame to see him retire so young, not least because now we'll never get to sign him , but a real quality keeper and more importantly a nice guy too to go along with that, he seems like the sort of guy who'd be a brilliant goalkeeper coach so maybe we'll see him in that role somewhere.

    Bohs seem to have a really good replacement in for him in Talbot though. Think he's a Bohs fan too so that's a nice bonus for them, played outfield for Ballymun GAA team too since his release from Sunderland so won't be behind in fitness or anything.

    It's quite an honour to be recognised in this way by your fellow professionals as was being called into the Republic of Ireland squad. There is no doubt that he was an excellent goalkeeper as was 2015 recipient Michael Slingerman.

    No dig at all at Shane Supple - I think he was an excellent keeper.

    Although I think some posters are guilty of hyperbole in comparing him with other current keepers in the league. With a well regarded back four in front of him, he still managed to concede 45 league goals this season. That compares with 20 conceded by Dundalk and 27 conceded by Cork City. Even Rovers with their goalkeeping calamity janes only conceded 27 between them - that's way less than what Bohs let in.

    Supple was, rightly, recognized as the best keeper in the league last season. He made a few mistakes but what keeper didn't ? was very good influence at Bohs both on and off the field. To suggest he had any fault in the vast majority of goals we conceded is simply silly.

    Terrible new about Supple, as important for his ability to organise the various centre half partnerships in front of him. He was also a great ambassador for the club and for the league. With Morris also gone that is a huge loss of on field leadership. Hopefully he can be persuaded to continue in some role within the club.

    I didn't suggest that

    .
    Supple is the main man (or heavily involved) behind a goalkeeping network or coaching classes across the city. Certainly this was in operation up to last year. I'd say he was doing tidily out of it.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Supple was indeed an super keeper and he seemed a more than decent guy too anytime I heard him on interviews or podcasts. He had a brilliant spell with Bohs and he will go down as one of the best keepers in recent years. He did get voted on to the TOTY by his fellow pros but I`m not sure he won any of the journalist voted potm awards, he definitely didnt win any this season.

    He was an excellent keeper, I have no argument with this, but you also have to look at his stats, the top keeper conceeded 20 and the next 27, Supple came in at 45. How that be the best keeper 'by a mile' ?

    What is not in question was his ability, he was one of the best keepers in recent seasons, I think that's a fair statement.

    Let's not get ahead of yourselves there. I could have stood in goal for Dundalk this season and conceded less than 30.

    I'm sure any player would put far more weight in the PFAI selections that journo selections. I don't think him not being chosen by journos is a reflection on his performances in recent seasons.

    And to say goals conceded is what decides who is the 'top keeper' is foolish. Unless you're breaking down the stats to saves vs chances taken, collections of balls into the box etc, they mean very little as a comparison between keepers in very very different teams.

    Supple undoubtedly had a better season that Nults. The figures don't tell the story in any meaningful way.

    You have a knack for both exaggeration and hyperbole - much like the ten goal a season hat stand

    The fact is that what people are calling the best keeper in the league conceded 45 goals. Now whether that was down to him or having a poor defence in front of him is the question. But remember one of those defenders also got in TOTY, the 2 centre halves have been widely plauded for their performances and one signed by yourselves. The other is Pender the captain.
