    No, Roche is at Morecambe. O'Hara was there on loan before alright but this is to Macclesfield. Surprised he couldn't get a move a league or two up.

    Good move for him. Not sure why he's even at Man Utd, they signed another, much older, keeper as additional back-up over the summer.

    O'Hara finally let go by Manchester United. I think he's certainly capable of becoming a decent keeper at least at Championship level but a league one move might be a good option at this stage to make sure he continues to play first team football.

    So does he see out the season with Burton Albion, or was that loan finished with first?

    Here's the indo on his release: not much other than a little background info on him

    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    Burton's season is finished so he won't be going back there unless they sign him.

    Which is a possibility actually, apparently they only have six contracted players as of next week.

    At 24 years of age, if he'd harbour any hope of playing at the top level, he would want to be looking at a top League One or mid table Championship side.

    Burton didn't exactly have a glowing defensive record, only six teams conceded more than them this year.

    Something tells me he won't really amount to anything more than a lower league goalkeeper.

    His loan spell at Burton last season has earned him a 2-year contract.

    You'd have to assume he'll be number one at his club this season, and there are precious few Irish goalkeepers we can say that about right now...

    Which translates to - The first day I got the job, I got in touch with Kieran and his agent regarding him coming back, and they said no chance, he'll be moving to a much bigger club than Burton.

    But as things developed, Kieran realised that he's not actually as highly rated as he had hoped, nobody better was going to come in for him and he has ended up having to sign with us.

    Which translates to - The first day I got the job, I got in touch with Kieran and his agent regarding him coming back, and they said we want £10k per week and we said no chance.

    But as things developed, Kieran realised that he wasn’t gonna get as much money as he had hoped, nobody better was going to come in for him and he has ended up having to sign with us.

    This cup game vs Aston Villa a chance to show his quality, assuming he gets the start. Imagine it won’t be Villa’s A team but surely a decent test.
