    It may not be a Drogs or Bohs-esque buying spree but we certaintly aren't any weaker.

    As point out, Cork's squad on paper has been weakened the most of all the top teams.

    I wouldn't put money on us to win the league personally until a few games in.

    We've had a weak pre-season, scored 2 goals in 4 games, let in 5 goals, and are playing with a second-string keeper.

    It all comes down to how quickly it takes us to get back into the winning spirit. A first game at home versus Bray should hopefully help.

    So have I (and Cork at 9-4).
    Cork haven't lost Neal Horgan yet, and Billy Woods is a decent left-back. Full back is the least important position on the pitch. Bennett is the big loss alright.
    They've potentially the best player in the league in Roy O'Donovan (who is like a new signing in a away as he only started playing up front at the end of last season), the best player in the league in Joe Gamble, and serious competition for places in midfield now. I can't agree that they'll be much worse.

    Team from last season

    Devine
    Horgan Bennet Murray Murphy
    Lordan O'Brien Gamble Woods
    Fenn O'Donovan

    This season

    Devine
    Horgan O'Callaghan Murray Woods
    Healy Farrelly Gamble Kearney
    O'Flynn/Behan O'Donovan

    O'Callaghan barely played last season. Murphy missed a lot of games due to suspension. Gamble missed 10 games due to suspension so could not top that. Bennet will be missed. Fenn was motivated last year as last year of contract. We finished 19 points ahead of Pats will thin as feck squad.

    Derry City have lost some defenders & replaced with Rodgers (useless) & O'Halloran (City & then Shels reserve). O'Flynn was proven backup forward & Bermingham unknown. How will the team respond to Fenlon?

    If Drogs had Rico, Fenlon or Kenny would win the league in a canter. Still amazed they did not go for Fenlon whose proven winner with the best squad.

    4-1 on Pats for Setanta Cup group is great value as we start very slowly.

    Asterisks

    What are the odds on the use of an asterisk not being necessary at the bottom of the league table this year? Or in any one of the next ten years? When was the last time there WASN'T a points deduction in either division? Even apart from the Shels situation, it's a banker that there'll be a few deductions for unregistered players or maybe even a club or two collapsing mid-season again.

    It will be a sign that the league is finally on track the first year that there are no asterisks required.

    (By the way, if anyone gets a POTM nomination for references to Asterix the Gaul/Obelix, etc, I'm claiming the assist!!)

    I had my bet on Cork City to win their setanta cup group voided after St.Pats replaced Shels with bet365. Did this happen to anyone else. Im a bit ****ed off about it to be honest.

    The 2000/2001 season I think although Longford got their points back in 02/03.
    We're not arrogant, we're just better.

    As Irishmen we dilute our sense of nation by depending on the English to bring us our balls

    Very unlucky. I haven't been voided by Hills anyway. As far as I'm concerned the bet should stand.

    I thought that would happen, but my bet with Paddy Power seems to still stand.

    I think the best one is www.odds-comparison.co.uk. This is 100pc up-to-date in general. The only thing is it doesn't include Boylesports or Cashman's.

    I've backed Pat's at 33 but was hoping you'd have signed a striker whose name isn't Vinny Arkins by now!

    I fail to see how Derry are worse. They are set to sign Dean Delaney who is an ok keeper, Jennings is a good keeper. The rest of the players they offloaded were squad players and they have added Rogers and O'Halleron.

    Derry have Molloy, McCourt, Martyn, Brennan, Deery, Higgins, McGlynn in midfield, which is the strongest in the league IMO.

    They have added to the defence with two players who won the title last season and have several league medals.

    IMO its Derry's title to lose.

    I think Derry overachieved under Kenny and believe that he is a better manager than Fenlon, who had easily the best squad year-after-year at Shels.

    Eh, yeah. I'd still have us as likely to be down there, even if Paiso stays.
    If you attack me with stupidity, I'll be forced to defend myself with sarcasm.
