    Thats a hell of a signing for Larne this. I would expect Larne to make a go of it for the rest of this season!

    Started well for us but his form dropped off a bit, once SOD came in he never got much of a go and despite having another year left on his contract he was told he wasn't in his plans. Seems to be a mentality/discipline thing with him from what's been said, though saying that I can imagine this massively blowing up in our face and him banging in 25 next season.

    If S O D is fecking him out over character issues I wouldn't worry to much. Hard work beats talent 95% of the time

    Must be a lot of “character issues” att Pats so given their strike rate. You must be delighted he turned down shams 😎

    Isn’t “character issues” the reason Jack Byrne was run out of England and Scotland ?

    The chap might well flourish in a new environment, but what makes you think that he is 'hard working'?

    Agreed, with the exception of some of the top clubs the British club system of developing young talent seems to be to brutalise and humiliate them and if they emerge from that they have " character" .
    Mc Auley is still 19? Great opportunity for him. I heard his options were between us and his home town club Rovers all right. More prospect of first team football at Bohs, would be the deciding factor I suppose.

    A lot of pace in that improved Bohs squad.

    If Long can get the best out of him then Bohs have added another good young player to the squad.

    He has bags of pace a decent eye for goal but will be offside more often than not.
    A little bit brain dead from a football point of view decision making etc which was frustrating as there is a real player in there.
    Potentially a 20 goal a season man IF he can fulfill that potential.

    I've seen Ali Regbha and Ryan Swan play for Bohs last year, I'm prepared for anything

    Just don't get how players can be offside so much. Fair enough, play on the shoulder of the last man if you want but often with the aforementioned two it's sheer laziness to get back in to position and a failure to look across the line and check your run properly

    What i meant was he is supposed to be talented but if he is being fecked out because he isn't hardworking then Pats have nothing to worry about in terms of him coming back and haunting them.
    It is very unusual for a player who doesn't work hard to be a success , hence SOD clearing out Pats of players who don't subscribe to his definition of Professionalism is the right thing IMO.

    Did you agree with the various managers that got rid of Jack Byrne ? Just wondering do the same rules apply to all players.

    Personally I would take Longs record of developing players over the (alleged) view of a rookie manager anytime. But we will see.

    I honestly think the truth is somewhere in the middle. I'm surprised how excited Bohs fans are getting about this kid (especially given he is a self-confessed "big Rovers fan" ) but I also don't think he is a write off because O'Donnell got rid of him.

    I'm glad Rovers didn't take him, but Bohs seems a perfect fit for both parties (other than him being a big Rovers fan ). Do think the reaction from some Bohs fans seems a bit optimistic given the evidence so far and his mediocre showing at the Rovers fans five-a-side!

    Jaysus calm down marino ,
    If Long can turn him around thats great for the kid but it doesn't mean SOD is wrong to move him and all the others on now if they dont fit with what SOD wants now.
    Maybe the wake up call will hit home with a few of these players. sometimes a kick up the ass is a good thing

    Thats a harsh judgement , the Rovers fans 5 a side was a tough gig

    I must be looking at it differently then , cos I thought this guy would end up at Rovers and a bit disappointed we won't get to see him. I guess he wasn't by going to be 1st choice starter. Let's face it, if he turns out to be any good he'll end up at Rovers soon enough anyway.
