    The only things I've seen is he is decent in the air offensively and he is better than our other RB at throw ins.

    Maybe the difference in the 2 leagues style of football is the issue.

    Bastian Hery is struggling but I do see a top player in their, linfield however are so inconsistent this season.

    We can hammer someone 7 one match then get hammered the next.
    How bad is that other RB then? or is it grasping at straws?

    I dont think Boyle is that bad but obviously needs to find his feet and some form. It is amusing that almost exactly what Bradley signed him for is what is being criticised as lacking. Maybe he needed a bit of time with a Rovers B team as part of his general development...

    I think he is a decent player but he lost confidence after a few mistakes and never seemed to get a decent run in the team. He played well for a few matchs and I thought he had turned a corner and then he got injured.
    He's still a young lad hopefully he turns it around

    He has also played in a Rovers side that plays ball and in a Harps side that played more attritionally. I doubt varying styles in the 2 leagues are impacting performances for him. I'd expect him to improve. As for Hery, imo he is a player that could struggle in a physical game on a heavy pitch. and he can go anonymous in games. He will show plenty of worth in European games but is a bit of a luxury player if involved in a battle and when needing players that will dig deep. I'd have been quite happy to see him at Oriel especially last season with our midfiled's injury decimation.

    He has undoubted quality. A player that would really shine in a team with quality around him that would make use of his ability to unlock defences. I just think that if he is in a game where things are going against ye he goes quiet rather than grab it by the scruff. He looked to give up in the Unite the Union game, I also felt that when Waterford started to struggle at the relegation end of the table he wasnt half as interested as when they were in the hunt for Europe. I wasnt surprised to see him leave Waterford for a team that was in for league titles and European qualification - he didnt have the stomach for the relegation battle aside from Waterford cutting back the squad.

    Galway sign another 2, any chance of a 12 team First Division with Galway & Galway II.

    I'm going to be a little judgmental but are they being a little reckless given the uncertainty in the division regarding the amount of games & revenue they can accrue?

    I think its mad the size of a squad we have. We have a minimum of 2 players for every position and enough for 3 midfields. Apart from the budget issue (which Id have preferred to go towards facilities or underage teams) its going to be impossible to keep players happy with 6 or 7 in the stands every week.

    On paper though it looks a very strong first division squad. Well have to be challenging for the title.

    That's just gibberish

    All managers sign player young and not-so-young that just don't work out.

    Ethan Boyle was a very limited player from the outset and probably dis-improved during his time in Tallaght , but he is only one of a long litany of poor signings by Bradley.

    To be fair he has signed some quality players in the last year, although the much needed striker appears to remain elusive

    Do you have withdrawal symptoms zeke?
    Or are you that impatient that you can't wait another week before resuming your laughable Bradley obsession so bring him up in conversation for no apparent reason.
    I know the off season is maddeningly long but find another hobby ffs. Can I recommend gardening, as it's very therapeutic.

    I wish him well too, but it looks like he is being found out now at Linfield too

    Was it Noel King who capped him at U-21? Enough said!

    I've actual said more positive than negative things about Bradley in recent times

    If you disagree with any of the views expressed, don't be shy to present a contrary view instead of the normal obsession guff

    Longford Town have signed Niall Barnes from Bluebell Utd. He impressed in our two one friendly win over Harps and scored our first goal that evening. Another signing is due to be made shortly which I expect to be Aaron McNally from Dundalk who also impressed.

    Leo Sayer was the alternative name on the teamsheet in the friendlies! Assume he must have played against us!
