You could largely put his stint in England falling apart down to his family situation, thankfully his kids seem to be doing well, so I'm absolutely delighted that he's back in an environment that he'll be well used to.

The only question remains is where do we play him? Back on the left wing or behind Pat as a number 10, where he's been playing in the UK?
31 in a few days but still a free years left. Done a lot more in the UK then Towell and 17 Ireland Caps.

Time will tell if this is a good investment or not. Who knows what Daryl Horgan we are getting back? The one that left us was unplayable against and would be brilliant. But is he the same player? We all thought Towell would come back and tear the league apart and Damien duff too, but didn't happen. Having said that delighted Daryl is back with us. Now if we can just get Shep done and dusted.
In fairness Duff was 36 when he signed with Shamrock Rovers. Towell was a goal scoring midfielder in LOI. He scored just a handful of goals in 6 years in England. The hype about his return was Ott.

We certainly got the best out of Towell - Hoare, Finn and Gannon too.

Plenty of attacking options now, how do you keep them all happy? Lovely problem to have all the same. Should make everyone step their game up.

Suppose that’s a program for Stevie and Cregg but as you say it’s a great problem to have. 11 games left in the league and hopefully a decent cup run and I think both will increase our chances of success on all fronts. Great signings well done to all involved in getting them done. Talk of outside investment or whatever but genuinely couldn’t care less

Maybe a left field choice but Frantz Pierrot looks like an absolute monster of a forward for Athlone. I've a feeling he'll have plenty of suitors in the PD but someone we should probably be looking at for next year.

A few UK clubs after. Ronan Coughlan but Pierrot is probably on the radar too. Some handful.

I see Robbie Benson returning to training. Surely this will be his last few games as a Dundalk player? We simply cant afford to be paying injury prone players to sit out an entire season. Same for Mountney? Or will their friendship with the manager trump reason...great servants , great lads,but realism is needed here.

How many of them would you actually hope are under contract next season is more a question that needs answered 😂

Is it not a case that most of the new lads are on 1 year deals with an option of another year sitting on the clubs side?
