    I'm surprised by that would have expected him to be kept on at Shels and to be offered more than what Drogheda could offer. Can't see him ending up anywhere else now really. Duff must be looking at bringing in some big talent if he's not required, sounded like he was their best player last year.

    He has been around so long I was surprised that he was only 30. He is a player that if interested he could be regularly the best on the pitch but if disinterested just didnt give a damn, a sulker if played out of his favoured position. He seemed to be more often disinterested. Maybe he did have a good season with Shels but is he reliable, and always up for a game these days? A character that could be disruptive in a dressing room. There is a sense that Duff is going for a clean slate as much as possible. Possibly a good signing for Drogheda if it happens if it doesnt disrupt the close unit Clancy has built. That said I felt that signing Shels castoffs that were relegated like Deegan was poor thinking and Deegan turned out to be an important signing although he did have history with clancy that might have helped.

    Could be a good squad player at Dundalk if the moneys tight…..,

    Celtic set to sign Danny Mandroiu according to the Sun, apparently we're looking at him since the summer but decided to wait and see his development

    He has turned into a better player than I personally expected at Rovers (was expecting something like a Mark Quigley at Rovers), but just like Scales, I really don't see that high of a ceiling that Celtic would need.

    Sean Brennan is on Clancy’s coaching team so first line of contact into Ryan I’d be happy to see him coming to us - sure if he gets uppity then Sean can have a brotherly chat.
    Drogheda United in this together

    I don't think Shels seem to accommodating anything but day-time training which has resulted in Brennan leaving and likely more of our starting XI which is a huge gamble for a team just promoted unless there is serious quality coming in.

    Brennan has been our best player for the past 3 seasons at the peak of his career I would be surprised if he didn't end up back at Drogheda

    Is Brennan at this stage more suited for a good top of first division side where he can get on the end of things, than a bottom half Prem Div side where you will be playing further away from goal & need to work without the ball more?

    You could say after a 15 goal season in the First Division sweeping in behind the striker that he would be more impactful for a team at the top of the First Division but in our relegation season in 2020 in an awful footballing team he was also mostly very good playing deeper in midfield and came up with crucial goals

    Drogheda would be the obvious destination on his doorstep and Clancy's football would be a good fit though I'd expect Harps and any first division teams who have a budget to try sign him

    Any reliable talk as to what Dundalk are doing manager wise? Heard a whisper tonight that seems unlikely.

    Listened to a bit of James Rodgers on Between the stripes and it won’t be Vinny Perth from what he was saying…..

    Yeah that's partly what I've heard. The other part that was more surprising was that I heard he could be coming back here. We'll see if there's any truth in it.

    I think that would be a good move for Perth, even for himself just to get out of Dundalk.

    Adam Foley left Harps and Drogheda the destination for him apparently…

    Dinny has officially left Drogheda. Probably the first of many to leave but I hope I'm wrong. I still think he can do a job in the premier, he got a handful of goals this season with very few minutes.

    With no source whatsoever other than their proximity to Drogheda and depending on our outgoings I think we will look at signing Ryan Brennan, Adam Foley and Keith Ward. If Odumosu goes I reckon he could be replaced with Steacy who was decent for Longford by all accounts.

    Even if the moves across the water don’t materialise it looks very unlikely they’ll be at Drogheda next year given the interest in them within the league. They’ll be very difficult for Drogheda to replace next year with the small budget they have to work off
