    People really talking up UCD this season. They were good enough in division 1 last season but it's a higher step up and did they not weaken? They were very good in the cup semi last season but didn't always hit these heights or have I got it wrong completely?!

    Didn't weaken as much as we could have. Daire is gone to Cork, but was behind Farrugia and McClelland by the end of the season. Sloggett is a loss but hopefully O'Farrell from Pat's will replace him. And Evan Osam has just been ruled out for the season through injury, which is like losing a player. Conor Davis took up where Georgie Kelly left off in terms of goalscoring, which was always one of our weak spots.

    We did also beat Waterford in the FAI Cup quarter-finals, and Waterford qualified for Europe. Though on the flip side, we were knocked out on penalties by Bohs' reserves in the League Cup.

    I suppose it may depend on what Oriel means by "the project"

    If he is referring to the "Bradley Project", I suspect that the manager could be under pressure for his job if Rovers are not, at a minimum, challenging for the title. I doubt he would survive another 'also ran' season with a third or fourth place finish and no major trophy.

    I don't expect that hypothesis to be tested

Best of Luck anyway, would be great to break the top 2 stranglehold this season.
    Ah, the rats at St Pats, isn't that what they were christened in Galway at the time ?😄 Johnny Glynn was the third member of that holy trinity, still fondly remembered at Richmond, especially Ricky Flah. Peter Carpenter was a super left back too.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Fair enough if he was referring to Bradley, I assumed he was speaking about the grander Rovers project if producing young players through the academy. That will survive Bradley ,and many more besides, I'd wager.

    I dont think there will be much between Rovers and Cork for 2nd, and I've gone for a wild card in Longford for the FD. Recently retired, then not retired DFC man actually doing a good job there, they looked decent against Dundalk a few weeks ago, 2-2 draw. I just dont think Shels will walk this as most think, then again.............

    For what itís worth

    1. Dundalk
    2. St. Patís
    3. Shamrock Rovers
    4. Cork
    5. Waterford
    6. Derry City
    7. UCD
    8. Bohemians
    9. Finn Harps
    10. Sligo Rovers

    Dundalk in a landslide, Pats to shade battle for 2nd with Rovers and Cork. Waterford a little off the pace with a gap to Derry & UCD.

    Bohemians, Harps and Sligo to be very close at the bottom. While the heart would like the Bit OíRed to avoid the drop, the recruitment has even just too erratic with too many gambles ahead of this season, rough opening few fixtures (Dundalk, Pats, Cork) have the potential to pile on the misery early too. Keith Long and Ollie Horgan have the experience of the budgetless dogfight which I feel will shade it in their favour but the playoff wonít be much solace.

    FD
    1. Shelbourne
    2. Bray Wanderers
    3. Longford
    4. Drogheda
    5. Galway
    6. Limerick
    7. Cobh
    8. Athlone
    9. Cabinteely
    10. Wexford

    Hard to look past Shels with the investment and recruitment. Bray are sending out the right signals and would fancy them to win a play off series.

    Neale Fenn has been building a decent side in City Calling even with the loss of Dylan McGlade to the Seagulls and they will compete with Drogheda for the third place spot.

    Galway and Limerick are both rebuilding this year and look to have potential but budget constraints mean a net departure in their squads. Cobh were poor against St. Pats in preseason but should be best of the rest.

    I expect Athlone to be more competitive this season and their new playing surface should help them on the field and off it. Cabo and Wexford will join the the midlanders around the foot of the table though.

    FAI Cup: St. Patís
    League Cup: Shelbourne
    Top Scorer: Hoban
    Managers sacked: At least 5 across both divisions during the season.
    Clubs publicly in financial difficulty: 1
