Ok so we obv know Duffy and Fats are gone, and others probably will follow, but lets just look at who we have at the min.

I heard again on Fri that p6 are waiting to see that we will be abs safe or as safe as possible, then contracts might be looked at, can see it to a point if we were flirting with FD as why would anyone pay huge wages for that, but we aren't and I don't agree with their stance in any case, but lets just look at it, as things stand today.

So how does 2022 look ?

MF is a bit mish mash, and I`m fully aware a lot of these probably won't be here, but for now they are our players, and we have 10 who would go into first xi.

However and again, I completely get with the current set up with P6, a lot of these will unfortunately be playing elsewhere, and that's a damn shame, as below with some nice quality additions and if we were run by a proper group, would give us a chance to really challenge at the top end end year.

Instead a lot will probably just walk away.

I'd give Ben Amar a chance next year if possible. He wasn't the player we needed in the summer but if there is any such thing as long term planning he could develop into a neat player for us out wide next year especially with Duffy gone.

It could also be that they are depending on Dundalk winning the FAI Cup to get European football, easier to retain some players with European football..

Cup final not until 28th of November, so a lot of players would be in talks with clubs before then.

To be fair Mike it was his first touch of the ball as he had only come on. I'd be a lot more critical if he had been on 10 to 15 mins with plenty of touches.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

Yeah there’s a potentially decent LOI player in there I think. Already shown a bit more than all the winter signings but I’d only be bringing him on as a sub atm.

That's a fair point Niall, I take that.

I also heard that mentioned too on Fri, P6 must live in a 'Lost' (the tv series) time zone. That or total arrogance, probably a mix of both.

Must be, Have been told he is a winger who they are looking to take in to replace Duffy. Dont have a clue what he is like to be fair.

Surely must be all hearsay considering we havent even looked at offering contracts to the players we currently have.

It was put up on that rumours account on twitter 4 days ago that we were looking at him along with a lot of others including rovers, bohs and pats. Can't say I know much about him but he's been great for UCD.

Sligo all interested in him, they are one of the better teams in the league for producing local players.
He might want to finish his degree and scholarship in UCD though.

More of an attacking Midfield player than out and out winger. Current under 21 international. Looks a decent prospect and worth a punt. One of those we might get now but who will maybe move home to Sligo when finished Uni or will be snapped up by Rovers or Bohs and we might regret it later. Could be a decent start to a rebuild.

I hear Derry are looking to bring in Aaron Mceneff in January from Hearts. He's not even getting into the match day Squads. They'll have a raft of midfield talent if all the deals go through.
