Mid season review by the Demo has Sean Gannon as poty so far.

Can't say that I agree with their assessment of Sean Murray performances to date

https://www.dundalkdemocrat.ie/news/spo ... wards.html
Murray has some important goals and was very good until he got injured and has not played fully fit as yet. Think he has done enough to show he has quality and will add to the team. Probably done more than Adjoran at this stage last season who only stared to blossom in the few games before he was off but had showed in flashes he had quality. I think Murray is probably ahead of him at this point. Hope he plays against Rovers and puts Byrne in his place. Time will tell
I broadly agree with you and think that the Demo has over-hyped his performances

The Demo labelled Sean Murray as "a pleasant surprise" when the reality is that there was very strong expectations based on how he performed for Watford and Republic of Ireland underage teams. His performance in his first appearance, against Drogheda, simply raised these expectations further

Saying he "has impressed on his every outing" is hardly correct when he has laboured with a lack of fitness in many games.

I have no doubt that he has the potential to be one of the standout performers in this league once he gains fitness and form - but he has only shown this in glimpses so far.

With the Euro draw relatively kind we're going to be busy for July in particular and possibly August. Cork at home and Pats away will probably have to be moved, especially as either opponent could be busy too. We are guaranteed 4 Euro matches on consecutive weeks, 6 looks likely, and 8 is a possibility. Here's a list of 18 games in just over 2 months!

Fri 28 Jun Shamrock Rovers (a)
Mon 1 Jul Waterford (h)
Fri 5 Jul Derry City (a)
Wed 10 Jul RIGA Champions League
Wed 17 Jul RIGA Champions League
Fri 19 Jul Cork City (h) ***
23/24/25 Jul CL2 or EL2
Fri 26 Jul St Pats (a) ***
30/31/01 Jul/Aug CL2 or EL2
Sat 3 Aug Sligo (a)
6/7/8 Aug possible CL3 or EL3
Weekend 9/10/11 Aug FAI Cup
13/14/15 Aug possible CL3 or EL3
Fri 16 Aug Finn Harps (h)
(20/21/22 Aug CL/EL playoff)

There is also the small matter of an EA Sports Cup Semi-final against Bohs on Mon 5th August.

Good point, and there's actually not a whole lot of scope for postponing that one as the final is pretty solidly fixed for 14 September. EA Cup and FAI Cup drop in priority as Europe unfolds. It'd be great to g oand win in Tallaght next week and give ourselves an eight point cushion before it all goes mental.

Credit where credit is due - the club media coverage of the Spanish training trip has been excellent

I've noticed myself that the social media game has really upped in quality recently, I wonder did they hire someone new to run it? As you said it has been excellent coverage from Spain.

Definitely great coverage, you have to ask why and how though. Did the club pay for a communications person to go on a jolly to Spain just so we could have a few tweets and interviews? Seems like an extraordinary outlay just to keep Twitter ticking over.

A rare enough interview with Aaron McCarey
