    PL is closed shop and Championship is higher standard than prob 4-6 euro leagues at this stage.

    Time well tell, for sure, but I think those stats more than compensate for three extra years. 33 is hardly past it.
    No, but if reports are correct, giving a 3 year contract for someone who will obviously be 36 in 3 years time and on big wages is a bit of a risk in my view, as said before there wouldnt be any English clubs offering this, same to any other player same age not just him. Good player, don't get wrong, scored today, decent standard, but 3 years, no way, I wouldn't pay it.

    Agree the three-year deal is a bit of a risk, but (assuming the money involved isn't mad stuff) it seems a risk worth taking as it does seem to give Pat's the edge over Dundalk/Bohs in what we should probably start calling the race for third.
    I was thinking about this earlier, then remembered, forgot about Sligo, so its really 4 going for 3rd place next season, but unless Dundalk recruit better quality this month, I can't see us getting any higher than 4th. Then again, I suppose that would be a huge improvement on the car crash of 2021.

    Maybe but SPL is still a far better standard than LOI, fully pro league (and stadia), plus not sure St Mirren were doing that well when Jamie McG moved over.

    The only thing that can be said with any certainty is that Shamrock Rovers will be there or thereabouts. Derry and Pats appear to be investing in significantly strengthening their squads, Sligo seem to be at about the same level as last year, Bohs a little weaker. Dundalk are well off the pace on the basis of what has been signed so far but there's still time and, presumably, money. But you can't tell how new squads will gell. Pats were comfortably the second best team in 2021 whereas most people had them pegged for 4th-5th at the start of the season.

    We'll do the predictions thing later, but seems already Rovers odds on then Derry for second, 3rd spot up for grabs, Pats at the minute in good shape, but Sligo have decent squad (still) Bohs too, and Dundalk have 5-6 more to join, a lot will depend on that quality.

    However I would see Rovers out front, Derry next, and the rest a fair good bit back.

    Fair point on Pats last season, I actually thought getting second more impressive than winning the cup, fans love the day out of course and the trophy (nothing quite like it) but coming second shows great consistency.

    For those of an older persuasion the great Jim McLaughlin DFC teams, two runners up in 80 and 81 either side of league titles were almost equally as impressive, as meant you were still 'at it'. Cork City to be fair probably on same context possibly deserved more than a single league title during Caulfield era only to come up against SK, but it didn't take anything away from their quality, 3 runners up in a row then a (well deserved) title in 2017 was very impressive.

    Edit: Just noticed that Hamilton aren’t currently in the SPL, makes sense as a transfer so
    Not a step up in standard, but he's got a full time deal and probably a last shot as a full time professional with a semi-decent wage.

    On current players onboard I would think 4th will be the highest. Finished 6th last year and that was by doing almost nothing from May to August.

    Will be interesting to see how it has taken shape come the start of the season. We were comfortably enough second best last season but this time last year folk were worried about relegation. I think Dundalk will end up looking strong personally, not like they couldn't field a decent side right now anyway.

    Think we might be reliant on some loans coming good like Jaros and Lewis did. I'd say even with Doyle signing we're maybe 4 players short of being properly in the mix.

    – Ronaldo Green

    An front three of Junior, Phoenix and Kavanagh could be lethal. O’Keeffe and Nolan are two important ones. O’Keeffe is one of the young players to lookout for.
    Our first new signings have been added to the squad officially.

    - Killian Cantwell - Athlone. Former Blues U19 also.
    - Yassine En-Neyah - Shels. Don’t know anything about him, reaction from Shels indicate they seem to rate him.

    En-Neyah joined us late in the season made 6 starts/4 subs got 1 goal was playing central attacking or out wide. I thought he looked tidy but wouldn't have been convinced he was at the level for Premier Division, a full season full-time under Morris again it's a good move for him
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians

    Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray has confirmed James Brown will sign for their U23 squad. I get that it can be hard to turn these things down for 18/19 year old lads that have aspirations of breaking into a first team but for Brown who is already 23 years old it’s a bad move in my books

    umm bit strange that one. More or less being told that he is only back up. I know they are a huge club but shows a lack of ambition for Brown himself.

    i assume hes been promised something better than u23 football once this season ends. probably just want him to get more games into him. the jump from LOI to CH is pretty big infairness. Any word on the length of the deal? the money must have been good either way, hard to turn it down.
