    I see Dundalk have tried offering some of their players 6 month contracts. I wonder is it just a strange negotiating tactic or what but either way it’s degrading and insulting to the players who have families to support and mortgages to pay. It’s not as if they’re Jack Wilshere for example who’s had a ridiculous injury record and is a multi millionaire

    I must be a grumpy old man at this stage, but I'm not overwhelmed by any of the signings so far. I don't know mccann, but of the other 3 neither Hoare or Gannnon really wanted to come to Rovers in my view and Mandrax has a bit to go to prove himself worthy of a place in Rovers starting 11.
    What this does clearly mean is Jack Byrne is gone.😭😭
    Rovers will clearly be odds on favourites for next year, mainly because dundalk look like they're being run by a clown troupe, but it remains to be seen how these 4 new faces blend into the tight knit group that's already there.

    Meant to add,
    The froth-mouthing bozos will be a picture next year, now that Danny boy is wearing the Hoops
    Dublin is green & white bozos, and dont you forget it. 😘

    Sean Gannon is the best right back in the league and will be a great signing. Looks after himself and will give top class performances.

    Not over the moon with Mandriou but Bradley got Burke to cop on to himself and he had a similar ****e attitude when he first joined. Needless reds and no worth ethic. Still gets a silly yellow here and there but he works hard and has improved his overall game and level of professionalism.

    Gannon is quality and Marshall can learn from him while he fights for the spot. Getting Finn, who has lost a yard or two of pace, back into the middle is a bonus as well.

    What the hell are Dundalk playing at though? Are they just using the contracts to force out players in the hopes they can attract better ones or do they think the lure of Oriel Park and working under Filippo will be enough to beat Rovers to players signatures even with worse terms offered? All in all, when you go back to some of the bizarre stories Dan McDonnell covered in the Indo, it seems like an absolute ****show. I wouldn't bet against Magilton sorting it out but he needs to act quick and get Bill out of the picture.

    Cant agree here, no idea about McCann but Gannon is a super player, Hoare is a qualityplayer when played in the right position and Mandriou is a huge talent, look at what how Rovers have developed Pico, Byrne and Burkey for a start and Mandriou has huge potential.
    If Jack is leaving as i suppose is likely then these 4 for a start are a hell of a start to replacing him and improving the squad.
    Looks like a squad built for a 50 game season

    The players were very well looked after in earned bonuses over the past 6months. So it does seem a strange way to go about business saying how they dealt with the players in rewarding europa Lge qualification.

    Can John Mountney play in every position on the pitch at the same time?

    Yes, while also sitting on the bench. He is versatile. Jack of all trades, and that is probably why he struggled to make any one position his own.

    All the angst from dundalk could be correct or could be a bit premature.
    So far its Gannon and Hoare out who would have been regular starters + mountney probably and a striker in.
    What happens next is the key.

    Neil O Riordan had a great article on Dundalk fiasco in sun today just read his piece. Wonder will JM outlast BF as I cant see either of them being a good partnership. JM lasted 6mths at QPR when they were notorious for changin mgr and outlasted few other ST mgrs so interestin to see wot happens next.

    I might have spoke to soon , Neil o riordan in the sun quoting JM saying he is leaving Big bill to the contract negotiations, ......not exactly what a sporting director should be doing.

    He cant believe that is the right thing to do

    when we are struggling to avoid the bottom 2 maybe Bill might see the error in his ways. There is balance to introducing new ways of doing things rather than believing you can revolutionise how contracts are dealt with. Surely with P6s other football interests they have advisors. Feels like Bill is making his own club targets impossible to attain. I still think that JM is playing the quiet game until he can settle in to his role properly, he was/is to be the buffer between the staff and board. Set a budget and then let the football side of the club allocate it.
