A 33 year old playing in the Scottish second tier. Honestly couldn't see how he'd be any addition


Gary Twigg came from lower levels of Scotland. Alan Spavin and Dean Bennett were older.

Maybe he is not good enough, but his age or last club are not reasons to dismiss a short term role


Alan Spavin he was some player get us over the line to win the league in 76. I was very young but I remember his passing and how he stood out on the pitch. Seemingly did not take the money he was owed the glory was enough

I guess our activity will depend on Adorján and Sam Byrnes situations.
I have no idea why we signed Sam Byrne, he may as well be at Everton getting fit, unless his contract has been cancelled already. Complete waste of a wage either way. Do we not do basic medicals on incoming signings?

Anyone know what length of contract Bastion Hery is on at Waterford? He would be brilliant signing for next season if he was available.

I don't think this article was posted previously although it's from a few weeks ago. The rumor was talked about on here.

There is good reason to believe that there is substance to the Georgie Kelly rumour, but it remains to be seen if a transfer will go through. He is contracted to UCD to the end of the season

Alan Spavin was indeed a wonderful passer of the ball...I recall seeing him play in the 64 fa cup final for Preston.
Tomorrow is another day.

Saw that.
I got a little excited until I realised that the guy who tipped off LOI Transfers about Markey is 15 ffs

Jamie Lennon at St Pats might be a more exciting prospect.

LOI Transfers have little credibility but like a broken clock, they get it right sometimes, maybe more often than is realised

To be fair to them, I think that said they’d retweet any info they get, although I can see one or two flaws in that plan! Such as the tweet this morning saying Andy Boyle coming back to us when released by Preston next week...

I just wonder if there might be something in the McEneff thing with Dean Shiels now a confirmed signing for Derry, plus SK did indicate if O’Donnell would be out long term, he would look at getting a replacement in.

Its getting a bit boring that every Tom Dick and Seamus out there assumes that we are always looking to take on new players. Transfer window opens shortly so let's link everybody with Dundalk. Stephen Kenny has assembled the strongest squad in the history of the club (a good mixture of youth and experience) with a view to competing on two fronts. Holding midfield was the one position where we lacked cover but with Chvedukas now fit to play, I feel we really are good to go. Other clubs would jump at the chance to have any of our bench from Friday night and that's with O'Donnell, Mountney and Gannon missing. As we have seen before, it can take til the end of the season for new players to get up to speed, so why bother. I also think Gannon's return to right back is not guaranteed. Hoare might not have his speed, but his crossing has improved hugely after a few dodgy games at the beginning.

Is Chvedukas a holding midfielder? I don't think it is his usual or preferred position.

Only area i feel like we need to strengthen is up front if any decent options became available.
We're badly relying on the Hobinator and despite his cult status i wouldnt like to be needing big Marco to fire us to the title. Hes looked pretty useless to me so far. Also Sam Byrne cant seem to warm up without getting injured so we'd be very light if anything happened Hoban.
