    2024 Season, Arrivals and Departures

    Might aswell start this for next season!

    Gary Buckley and Ryan Flood rumoured to be heading to Galway....

    Bradley confirms Gaffney had 3 or 4 offers from around the country, namely Galway and Derry City.

    Bradley saying that contract offers made very late for players, mentions Byrne and Gaffney specifically. Says Gaffney had 3-4 other offers on the table. I know he is a Galway lad and has a house there but is he really going to be at Galway next season. Still the best striker in the league and he has a hunger to win trophies and stay at the top for as long as possible. I’m thinking he does another season at Rovers.

    Can't be too many transfer fees paid between LOI clubs. Ryan Flood under contract at Harps, Ollie Horgan definitely approached him after the game in Galway recently too, so it'll be interesting to see whether they're willing to stump up a fee.

    Galway paid €6-10K for Mikey Place which went well!

    Flood is incredibly one footed, Id be surprised if Galway are looking to sign players from a dreadful FD team. Gary Buckley well past his best too. Wouldn't be getting overly excited by those names. They need plenty of investment if they are going to achieve anything next season

    I hope so. He's the best player in the league for me. Won't have the same amount in the tank next season but I wouldn't want him anywhere else. I'd imagine Byrne is gone but if he can't stay fit that's OK. You can't win leagues with the likes of Byrne or McEleney if they can't play games.
    21 leagues and 25 cups.

    Seems to be at least some kind of optimism that Adam Murphy will stay with Pats which would be a surprising one to say the least.

    Sam Curtis is off for sure though. Only getting compensation for him isn't ideal.

    Very surprising on Murphy after nearly moving to Bristol. Not sure why that deal fell apart. He hasn’t hit top form since but would be an important player to keep for next season.

    "But due to his age and the nature of his arrangement with Harps, it is believed that Harps will get compensation to the tune of something between €6,000 and €9,000."

    This has been my thinking on it up now. Hard to see someone going from the best striker in the best team to a newly promoted club with no Europe.

    But I've read his wife gave birth last week so maybe having a young family based in Galway means he'll want to live and work as close to home as possible. Without really knowing the man or his situation at all I think the situation could be that he ideally wants to be in Galway next season but just depends if the club can pay him enough to make it make sense.

    Laughing at you - imagine posting one of those garbage clickbait websites as a source to try and prove a point about something you haven't got a clue about. Embarrassing.

    Assuming Harps gave him a letter retaining him before his contract expired compansation is mandatory.
    So either Harps wanted rid of him and didnt issue a retention letter or compo is coming (which may not have been paid yet).
    Thats not opinion its the rules. ITs why Rovers had to pay Boh compo for Mandroiu and Bohs had to pay us compo for Max Murphy

    A lot of assumptions there.

    Ask some of the Harps fans on here did they get any money off GUFC for Place.

    Flood scored 14 goals for a dreadful Harps side, and was absolutely a step above everyone else in the squad. I think he'd walk into majority of Premier Division squads on his ability alone. Work-rate is the issue, and likely the reason he didn't progress to MLS standard from USL in the states. I think he'd be a fabulous signing for Galway tbh.

    This is all very funny. Compensation is a UEFA requirement. It happens all across the LOI. Harps have received compensation from several clubs in the past number of years. I'm not sure in the case of Mikey Place specifically, there may well have been some other arrangement in place of it, which has also happened, but we've definitely required compensation from several moves.

    Those aren't transfers though, which I mean specifically a player under contract getting a transfer fee paid between clubs.
