    Its a great pity to see clubs converting to astro pitches. They appear to be harder on the players and a lot of knee injuries appear to happen on them.
    I suppose it can be argued that a lot of clubs use astro as their training pitches but I would prefer a return to grass pitches.
    A modern well constructed grass pitch should be durable and relatively easy to maintain.
    The new Dalymount pitch is to be astro I believe.

    Dalymount as astro does sound like sacrilege to be fair.

    Must say have always thought Derrys to be better than Oriel but either way astro pitches are all bad and I hope changes in that direction will be reversed in the years ahead.

    Dalymount most definitely will not be astro . It is getting the same pitch type as Aviva/Croke park a grass pitch with artificial grass woven through it to the best of my knowledge

    Thatís also what I heard from a Bohs source, who I would trust as well placed to know. Iíd have no hesitation in banning the Oriel/Brandywell type pitches, though I understand the financial motive for clubs going that route. They seem to be becoming prevalent up North as well.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Lads I have refereed on lots of artificial pitches and I can honestly say that none are better than others, and to be fair I've never been on a bad one, now I only reffed LSL and schoolboy games on them so I'm not saying top level loi players aren't affected by them, but I think a lot of peoples impressions are down to RTE's ****e camera work, when you are in the middle of one they all look the same and equal for all. Except for when Dundalk only water one end.

    Deffo gone.

    Kevin Mulligan confirmed what was already known in a piece he wrote in the Argus last week:

    Italian born, Abibi, who was capped at underage level by Albania and who made 20 appearances for Dundalk after signing last January, has returned to Italy and is understood to be on the lookout for a new club.

    On the topic of him, one of the papers had an article online a few weeks ago saying he has options in Holland and Denmark as well as the UK. Would be interesting to see how heíd do in another European league rather than a Ross County etc
    Sorry for any confusion - yeah when i posted GK i meant Georgie Kelly.

    I mean only a few years ago we used to get excited coz a lad once played u16s for a league one side and went on to play Sunday league tier in England. Thereís been many players come over from biggish English clubs and not work out. Canít judge these guys till they play a few games.

    There's no financial incentive to Derry City FC in having the artificial surface. Shortly after it was laid, Conal Byrne said it was the best surface he's played on. The difference from then to now is that when it is dry, I haven't seen the club water it since the very first few games of use, apparently the council's H&S put a stop to that! When it's raining, the pitch is a joy to play on. For a 'summer' league, they shouldn't be used.
    As Irishmen we dilute our sense of nation by depending on the English to bring us our balls

    The pitch in Oriel after it was re-laid was excellent, then the UEFA tests happened. There is all sorts of tests that need to be conducted, ball bounce, spin etc and the result was a load more of the black pellets were put on the pitch which actually made it play worse and looks terrible. Hopefully the rumours are true and we're back to grass in the next couple of years.

    There was talk we had someone on trial but all's gone quiet on that front. Seems like Grivosti and Adam O'Reilly (maybe Matty Smith also though it seems unlikely) will round out the outfield squad* so it's all on getting a keeper now. Always a gamble going outside the league but let's hope it's more Jaros than Abibi.


    * Although I wouldn't say no to another midfielder as well as O'Reilly personally

    I reckon we must have someone in place at this stage and are having to wait for them to arrive. Iíd prefer to see them soon enough and to start training with the rest of the squad. Iíve heard a few rumours but nothing solid.

    Seems like a bit of a risk paying a fee and giving him a two year contract considering his recent injury record.
