They’re not necessarily going to be better players, but somebody from a different background, in terms of upbringing, whether it’s in Croatia, Montenegro or Slovakia.
Maybe this is Vinnie speak for saluting the quality of his current squad, but surely a new signing should only come in if he improves the squad
I thought he meant a different style of player, something different than we have in Ireland and in an extension the UK. He sees the same thing we have when playing in Europe and there is a quality we are lacking that other teams we've played had.

Maybe you're right about what he means, although a different type of player is only useful if the quality is such that he will improve the squad. I may be reading too much into it, but saying "they’re not necessarily going to be better players" sounds to me like reducing expectations. In my opinion, Robbie Benson needs to be replaced by someone of at least a similar standard to play the No8 role

Not exactly the montenegro, serbian type of player Vinny hinted at. His Statistics arent that great either. 218 appearances in Scotland with a return of 28 goals. Still young at 24 years of age. Dont see him dislodging Hoban or Georgie

Attacking midfielder according to Mark McCadden. Depends where he played I suppose.

Playing at a higher level than Gary Twigg. And we know how that ended up!
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

So did Tagbajumi and look how that turned out. Statistically doesnt look great, Hope am wrong and he is a real gem.

Led to believe from sources in NI, that Cameron Dummigan will depart Dundalk in the coming days for Crusaders. The Armagh man started just 9 games for Dundalk last season (4 in the league). He made 19 appearances in total, scoring once.

Shows the real life difficulty of trying to build a squad with quality players expected to play back up. No lad worth his salt puts up with it for long. Wonder did we miss a trick not trying him when Shields was out instead of loaning McKee

Seems to be a decent move, hopefully we also have a clause to re-call him earlier, if injuries comes up. He is under contract to end of 2020. Def good to have him back for Europe.

PS Just what on earth is going on with McCarey, did he not report back for training? seems to be no news on his situation, very odd scenario really.

I have absolutely no idea but it could well be something personal. Perhaps we should cut the guy some slack.

Loan registrations go from one transfer window to the next. He can't play for us again till July - just in time for first Champions League match on July 7 or 8

Whats the verdict of Cammy Smith so far?

Or do we need to see more of him?
