Having managed before I'd like to think Vinny knows a poisoned chalice when he sees it. I think we list something from the backroom when Gerry Spain left. VP definitely plays a major part in what happens bith on and off the field and we would certainly be worse off.

Gavin McL has a piece up on his page interviewing Murray, I note he has only signed a one year deal. Hoban is on 2, I think Folan and Jarvis the same, and we know Gannon is on a 3 year deal.

Pity we couldn't have got Murray signed up for longer.

Would hate to see Vinny Perth go, but (bearing in mind the ownership stuff) a seamless transition to the next man after Kenny means the likes of Perth and Stephen O'Donnell cutting their teeth at a lower club

Sounds like he's trying to shop window himself with us.

Fine by me if he bangs in 30 goals and we win everything in sight.

I can see another area opening up for LOI players, that league scene in the states below MLS that Kilduff/Barrett went to. I think Beattie from Cork was looking at that too and only signed back with Cork at the last min, this is probably a more realistic option now for LOI players than Championship/League 1 in England, but its another competition for us with players.

Agree though, if we get a great year out of him, and we are successful, it will have been a good deal for both parties, and he might be interested in tasting more and staying on.

Anyone know if it's a one year deal or more?

Great decision by Robbie, guaranteed European football,
it's not all about money . Noticed Boyle / Horgan not getting in , or Richie for that matter. Dundalk the place to
be.

Excellent news. Robbie is a very important player. Offers so much to the MF shape and is technically one of the best in the country in his position when he hits top form.

Good news. Just that damn one year contract. Still much better to have him signed on one year than no deal, in the day where deals were not as they seemed !!!

My hopes are rising slightly about the possibility of David McMillan staying. It's 2 weeks since Tommy Wright was talking about wrapping up a deal, about a week since he is back from holidays along with Stephen Kenny suggesting an update by next weekend.

TV 3 this morning have said that McEleney could be made the highest payed player in the league. I may have misheard but I also think they said the highest paid player ever at 100k for the year??

2K a week wouldn't be anything like the highest ever from the Fenlon at Shels/Bohs days but it would be an extraordinary amount to pay nowadays. Specially for a somewhat injury prone luxury player
