Listening to the press box podcast and JR speaking about the previous owners and they were speaking about the transfer policy.

JR mentioned about not going for the likes of Brian Murphy/James Talbot etc and having the likes of Alex Rando on trial. Curiosity got the better of me and I googled him to see how he got on. He has played 27 games for his club and has conceded 65 goals. What is it with their choice or potential choice of goalkeepers. Crazy stat

Also mentioned Lee Desmond being interested in a move to Dundalk last season. Imagine if we had Talbot & Desmond instead of Abibi and Sonni.

Zahibo still without a club since he left Dundalk.
Nathan Oduwa left Dundalk over a year ago and still a free agent. He had been a free agent for a good period before Dundalk signed him also.

The one thing I learned that I didn’t already know from the (tough going) Pressbox pod this week was that the Connolly deal is as good as done according to JR.
If it’s true and with the news about Joe Adams, the squad is coming together nicely

16 confirmed senior players now. Midfield is around 8 (depending on your views on Mountney) , defence looks light so maybe a couple more there and I would like to see us with a third striker, unless someone like Kwelele can step up.

Not sure if the Adams deal is permanent. Could be a loan because I think he's under contract for 2022.
Adams is contracted until June. https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/joe-ada ... ler/547045

It's probaly a loan until June ,and then joins as a free agent if he impresses.
Brentford website saying it’s a permanent move.

I havent been this excited for a team since probably keenys 1st year in 2013.
I dont know where we'll end up but I'm just gonna enjoy the ride and take it game by game.
I really believe we may start slow given time we will be a force this season and suppise a few

Interesting. Seems to be a right winger.

Edit: Seeing now that he plays in the middle as well
Here's the goal mentioned in DMcD's article against IreU21.
https://youtu.be/SkhDBPeyle4
29:30 into the clip (11:40 in the game)
And for good measure here's his 2 goals from the U21 match referred to in the DFC statement.

1st a penalty at 4:50
2nd 58:25
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FEwdUD ... raltarFATV

Was taking corners in the game also for them. Seems to hang back out around the edge of the box when play is developing waiting to pick up a loose ball. Looks to be a very good acquisition (based on a few youtube videos :-) )

Seems to be comfortable with both feet. Playing on the the LW and scoring with his left while taking the penalty with his right foot.

Connolly has a decent range of passing from the back , which O Donnell would likely want for system

Not only was he the worst GK in our history, no FD would have taken Abibi, and Sonni wasn't far behind, he didn't even try, both on the field in Tallaght v Vitesse when we rallied, we effectively had 9 on the park, at long last Vinny got tired of him and took Sonni off, but back to your point, if we had both, we would have made europe in my view.
