    2022 Predictions list

    Anyone brave enough to start this off?

    Most if not all club squads should be completed now, bar a few trialists and maybe some very late additions, which can / has happened up to start of season before.

    I have my list of 1-10 (I think) in my head, but would only know as much about FD to post top 5.

    What do we usually do?

    PD 1-10
    FD - Top half?
    FAI Cup Winners
    Top Scorer (PD)
    First Manager to leave (PD)

    (not sure if League Cup is on in 2022, Dundalk must be longest holders of that, from 2019!)
    #DundalkFC - First Irish club to win an away game in Europe (1963), first Irish club to win points in a group stage in Europe (2016).

    Feels strange that the season starts in two weeks - a lot of clubs' squads seem unfinished still. Bohs and Dundalk the most obvious two in that.

    Rovers - Won the league by 16 points and signed Jack Byrne. Seems a no brainer
    Derry - Close between them and Pat's I think, but while Pat's have signed the better player in Doyle, Derry triumph in terms of quantity and I think that'll stand to them.
    Pat's - See above
    Shels - Pre-season has felt a bit like a title race where nobody wants to win - or come fourth, in this case. I've no idea who'll be here, but I do expect a gap from fourth to third, and a bit of a bunch below that like last season. I'll go with Shels for fourth as Duff has a good reputation as a coach and there was a feeling Morris underachieved, but the wheels could very easily come off of course.
    Sligo - Kenny will be a big loss and I don't think they've replaced him
    Bohs - Kelly will be a big loss and I don't think they've replaced him. Or the others they've lost
    Harps - Ollie to kick enough shins to stay up again. If he can get UCD Mahdy back, then they could well score enough to come ahead of one of Sligo/Bohs/Dundalk. If he can get the foreign contingent to understand him, they could pip two of those.
    Dundalk - Fairly underwhelmed with their squad tbh. Hoban, McMillan and Benson are proven, but their squad is very thin and they don't seem to have the academy behind them that Bohs/Sligo do. I'd be worried if I were a Dundalk fan.
    UCD - As play-off winners we should finish last, but I think we have enough to stay up. Only losing one player (Doyle) was an unexpected boost, and if the new signings can make the same impact last year's did (Todd and Brennan the stand-outs) then we have a definite chance. Whether so young a team can cope with so many games is another issue, and we'll need to start better than in 2019.
    Drogheda - Have lost a lot of players to Pat's/England, and they might struggle as a result.

    First Division - God knows. Half the teams shouldn't even be in it, and mis-management makes it hard to tell who'll actually put together a run of form to get out of it this year. Picking names out of a hat, I'll go -

    Cork
    Galway
    Brayteely
    Treaty
    Wexford (could be dark horses actually)
    Waterford
    Longford
    Cobh
    Athlone

    I think Shamrock Rovers should romp home again, could be close between 2nd to 6th and then another gap with 7th to 10th all close battling for relegation

    On DFC, I am a little worried on MF strength, a lot will depend on the two Welsh lads but I would have gone for a bit more steel in the middle, if Benson and Sloggett can start off well that might close the gap too, but likes of McEleney / Patching / Murray from the middle will be hard to replace. Duffy simply irreplaceable, hence was thinking long and hard over 4th v 5th!

    1. Rovers
    2. Derry

    (Title race between two. Seems like Rovers by a mile. Duffy and Fats are great signings if Fats is not injured. If Patching and Dummigan are the same players for Derry as Dundalk, I wouldnt expect too much).

    3-6 Dundalk/ Sligo/ Pats/ Bohs...

    (All weaker from last year. A lot of changes at Dundalk and Pats and Bohs. Sligo losing Mahon and Kenny is difficult.)

    7-9 Shels- Drogheda- Harps
    (Havent been to impressed with Shels payers brought in, Drogheda had some intresting signings, but lost so much. Harps I think will be weaker from last year).

    10. UCD

    (finshed 3 in last years first and added no players. And might lose some in the summer (when they normally get better)).



    Really all teams apart from Rovers and UCD have changed too much to really know anything at this time.

    Top Scorer: Hoban
    FAI Cup: Dundalk
    First Manager: Duff or Buckley

    While we are favourites to finish last, it's not true we've added no new players. We've added five.
