We have been here before, but letting Shields go mid summer was madness, he could have easily joined Linfield on 1st Jan, no fee either.

Doesn't matter that he may have wanted to play local to avoid travel, it was only an additional 4-5 months, and this could have made the difference with 2-3 league wins or at least less defeats, far more important for the club to be safe v saying yes to his request to be released, I would have said no.

The mistake is in responding to it. It's a bit like a rash, if you ignore the itch it'll just go away. Anyone going to Derry is certainly not going for European football in 2022. Bohs are the form team and are only a point behind Derry with 2 games in hand and a better goal difference. In fact their target will probably be Sligo in 3rd. 4th is only good enough if Pat's win the cup.

You seem to have alot of itches I'd go get it checked out kid . Do you really believe Duffy or Fats are coming home only for European Football ? They are coming home to try and win the league .

No they aren't... They have won multiple titles here. They are following the money... Don't kid yourself...btw I don't blame them.

Bit of a strange place to discuss a Bohs player moving to Derry....

Anyway , is Sean Boyd someone who could be a decent squad player (or better) for Dundalk? His finish was impressive in Oriel as was the equaliser in Finn Park. Swords based also.

I like him a lot and could be class but allergic to the idea of another player with a history of serious injury.

Interview with higgins in the Derry journal not denying his interest in Duffy and with the way things are going, he probably is on his way out.

Which also means he ticks all the boxes for Buffolo, well apart from being from a different continent

The rumours were that Duffy was offered a longer contract than the others last year but insisted he would only sign a 1 year. Speculation that he was looking for a move across the water. Now Derry have money. No much we can do if do if he wants to leave as he wasn’t interested in a longer deal last year

Derry also eying up Patching, which isn't surprising after his loan spell there.
