    Great news about Jamie. The two key signings we’ve all had fingers crossed for were him and Cotter - hopefully that gets over the line too. With Forrester, Redmond, Grivosti, Breslin, Curtis, Eoin Doyle and Atekayi all on contracts into 2023 that would be 9 of last seasons best 11 tied down, as well as Barrett, Brockbank, McCormack, Timmermans and Mark Doyle. Plus a raft of Ireland under-age internationals.
    There’ll probably be an exodus of quite a few players who have struggled for game time. Apart from sorting out the goalkeeping position (presumably Odumusu will stay and a backup will be signed) the two key requirements will be a replacement for Adam O’Reilly in midfield and one more reliable goalscorer.
    It’s great to be able to stand back from the annual scramble to rebuild squads. That really cost us this year (thanks, SOD).

    Yeah, I'd have thought he'd stay at Derry. Really liked him at Rovers but maybe he just wants to be first choice and doesn't have long left for it. Played 26 times for Derry last year though and at his age you'd have thought that'd be ideal. Derry must have someone lined up.
    20 leagues and 25 cups.

    Believe Odumosu signed a two-year deal.

    DL wasnt involved in cup final at all for derry. Was he even in their matchday squad?
    Gary Cronin is he the right man to manage Longford Town?

    Let it go Gareth, nobody believes you. He just didn't love you anymore.

    How's the court case going?

    A shame to lose Caffrey, a good signing by shels. That goal from distance he scored against harps was a thing of beauty.

    I think I predicted here a few weeks ago that Caffrey would end up at Shels, with his cousin there and a historical association with Duffer from his time at Rovers underage. BTW, a fantastic player, has all the tools. Also, the key fact that he is not actually a student in UCD, so nothing tying him to the place. But this is the problem now at the college, so many of the players are not students, so they have no loyalty and no intent to hang around, so they are just using it as a place to get first team ball until they can jump to a better gig. That ultimately damages UCD. They might stay have stayed up, but there is now zero depth in the squad compared to prior years, and fairly sure now that they will be regretting the loss of all the lads that left mid year to play elsewhere in LOI. Dylan Duffy next out the door. Another Rovers product. But as they seem to be making themselves an outlet for Rovers academy product, no doubt a few more non students on the way in

    You mentioned Duffy to Lincoln? Is that still the case?

    I assume Lonergan is another one of those players? Have to think all the other Dublin clubs and probably Dundalk will be in for him if he's free to move.

    Haven't heard specifics about Lonergan, but it was a real surprise when he started college in September, so that may at least give him a decision to make, but I'd be amazed if he is still there next season. Last i heard Duffy was still going to Lincoln, its starting to look possible that Whelan will stay until June to get himself back up to full match fitness in advance of a move (assuming he can get back to form and nail down a move) Duffy not in college, so no no ties to the place, so his departure expected.

    On the bench.

    Expected him to be away, Sligo is probably a good club for him.
    He can produce real touches of brilliant at times, but he was inconsistent and went missing during many games.

    Harry Groome Wexford to Bray, was really good at Wexford last season. Ryan going to pillage the best young talent from Wexford, decent chance Eoin Farrell and Thomas Considine to follow

    Not very well one would expect, since it appears no evidence was found that SOD signed an extension to any contract he had at Pats in 2021, honestly thought most Pats fans were over this by now.
    #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).

    I`m almost sure Ben McCormack's contract is up at Pats, end of 2022.
