    Jeepers. That's some serious money to be splashing on a player.

    Apparently (hell of a word when it comes to transfer talk) they’ve turned down an offer of ~60k from Glentoran. Was told by same individual his (very substantial) wages or a significant % of aren’t actually covered by Cliftonville themselves.

    This could all be absolute nonsense btw. I’ve notice a poster with a Cliftonville badge on here before so perhaps they would know better.

    I've noticed him too. I have no doubt he knows, and no doubt he would say very little about the club's internal arrangements.

    Fair enough, not particularly bothered either way just so happened that someone in work had told me all that about Gormley today.

    Anyway Derry have signed Norwegian striker Tim Nilsen. Scored two against Harps the other night wasn’t at the game so don’t know how good or otherwise he looked.

    Hmm, I think that reads in a different tone to how it sounded in my head! Have known Mr Parker a while and would be fairly confident he has an inside track on things.

    He looks like a handy poacher. Right place, right time, sort of player.

    We have signed striker Martin Rennie from Montrose. He looks to be a player with a lot of heart, but coming to the LOI will be an acid test.

    Apologies but you’ve lost me here.

    Also just realised someone had already posted about Glentoran’s bid so that post can essentially be scratched, teach me to read more than just the last page of a thread.

    Could Shamrock Rovers dive in with a bigger offer for either player to try to resolve their hat stand dilemma?
    That article says that Joe rejected the move too. Hardly surprising- a look at his Twitter would imply that he wouldn't be too keen on moving to an east Belfast side and he wasn't too keen on professional football when he packed it in at Peterborough. Would be interesting to see if Rovers tempted him though.

    Rovers did try to sign him and he signed a longer contract with his home town club. U could say it was a la k of ambition not to want to go full time but when u look at all the players that leave their home town to go away and end up miserable maybe he is just a guy who is happy to play in front of his friends and family every weekend.
    Ridiculous comparison I know but was watching a sky sports show recently about Stephen Gerard and he said when he didn't move to Chelsea and sacrificed winning the leagues etc the deciding factor was his dad telling him he even if he won leagues with Chelsea it wouldn't mean as much. People accused him of a lack of ambition to go and win things. Not equating the two players but the hometown is a draw for some

    He tried his hand in England, didn’t like it and fairly soon rejoined Cliftonville by choice.. He has already learned things aren’t always greener on the other side, hence why he signed a long term contract when Rovers tried signing him. He is happy and playing his best football at the club he loves. If anything he should be commended for his loyalty rather then giving stick over ambition. There isn’t a team on the island he wouldn’t start for

    He rejected Rovers. In the minds of some fans that is incomprehensible

    We've signed Kyron Stabana from Wimbledon on loan. Sounds like one or two more loans to come in from the UK over the next couple of weeks. Hard to know what the quality will be. Waterford had great success with loan moves in 2018, we had far less with our loans in 2019.

    Unusual situation at top of IL this season with 4 in with a real chance of winning it (5 if Clifftonville make up ground) but more importantly is the CL league spot.

    Also note this season IL are reduced to 3 teams in Europe, so the chase is on not to miss out, 60k outlay small beer if a CL spot can be secured, even the lesser prize of 250k for EL qualifcation.

    Thats not at all a bad signing. He needs game time, bags of potential, needs some belief in his ability - hopefully more Richie Towell than Conor Clifford.
