    Yeah, same guy. Scored what - 30 goals for Waterford's 19s last year? Scored against Dundalk in a friendly last month (Dundalk scored 7, granted...)

    Him and Mahdy up front could score a few hopefully.

    Whelan is a superb talent. Definitely one to watch. Big career ahead of him if he keeps his head screwed on.

    Brian Murphy tonight signed for Waterford from Cardiff.

    Rennie has gone quietly about his business and has built a potentially serious little squad. Much more optimistic then this time last year. Can’t wait for it to get going again

    I'm not sure how Waterford will do this season but I think Rennie deserves huge credit for building the squad he has and at least giving the blues some sort of chance. 5 or 6 weeks ago they barely had a single player on the books

    Hard to pass up the opportunity to sign Murphy but now 2 keepers & still only one centre half in Bone who is more or a midfielder.

    Waterford have some interesting signings but the side looks so unbalanced

    In fairness when it was announced Rennie signed a new contract, most assumed he wouldn’t stay on without an competitive budget. Even going back 5/6 weeks ago, with the players that were on the the books it was looking likely we’d build a good albeit small squad for 2020. At that stage we’d some highly rated youngsters signed on first team contracts with Cummins, Bone, Kev OConnor, Tagh Ryan, Allardice, FitzGerald etc.

    Our two most interesting signings without a shadow are Wilson from Man City andAle Coote from Brentford B, Coote was their play of the year last season and was also the B team captain. Interesting season ahead for sure

    Graham Cummins can play centre back and started his career in that position before making his name as a striker. Good interview in local paper with him this week about that. We definitely need a few more defenders as squad still lacks depth. I agree that Reynolds deserves credit for squad with he has got together over last 6 weeks.

    No offense but you need two keepers in the first team squad, you can’t run the risk at premier division level of the first choice getting injured for a lengthy period and then having to rely on underage keepers.

    Aside from that, Rennie has players training throughout preseason, just because a player hasn’t been announced doesn’t mean he wont be signing. I’ve heard we’ve potentially 3/4 others to be announced. The PFAI gave away a couple on a recent social media post.

    When Cummins last played with the club he signed as a centre back and then was converted into a striker from when we played and beat Monaghan 6/0 if I remember correctly. Cummins has played at centre back a couple of times during preseason, wouldn’t surprise me if he played centre back this year with a couple of defenders to come in before the deadline.

    I think goals might be our biggest problem this year.

    You need two keepers but I’d imagine Ryan is on a wage for a starting keeper & Murphy won’t be cheap either so that is a large chunk of your budget especially when you have a small squad

    Cummins as a starting level prem division centre back is a massive leap of faith, you may get away with something like that in the first division but I’d have serious reservations at this level.

    On the plus side if Cummins is at centre back then O’Connor is less likely to be shifted out to the wing, he didn’t get loads of goals at the end of last season but I really liked his all round play which could be a great foil for someone like coote who is a really interesting pick up

    That certainly explains why Caulfield was so eager to bring him in as a striker. I doubt he can be seriously a considereation for centre half. If a patched up defence due to injuries/suspensions of course, but even as proper cover after years of playing up front?

    City bring Joseph Olowu in on loan from Arsenal until the summer. Center back, looked very comfortable on the ball against Longford on Saturday.

    Waterford signed two players Andre Burley and Akin Odimayo on loan from Reading. John O'Shea who is a coach there helped arrange the loan move. Both played very well last night by all accounts.

    Was wondering who those lads were when reading the match report. That clears things up.

    I wonder are Preston hoping Burke does well between now and July so they can sell him in the summer. He still has one year left on his contract after the current English season. I wonder if they’ll try to recoup some of the transfer fee in the summer by shipping him off to a league one club or have they already cut their losses and they’re willing to send him back on loan in July for the remainder of his contract?

    He was on trial with Rovers, we are supposed to be signing a new striker this week I thought it was going to be him. Be interesting to see who we sign now, were being linked to Adam Rooney.

    No chance of Rooney signing he is on megabuvks at Salford and he is their top scorer with them chasing a playoff place.
