Excellent call. Still very young and would be very hungry to shine here and re estalish themselves

I would imagine that there will be zero information from the club about potential signings intil any deal is done, and I would urge everyone to resist the tempation to be "first with the news". I expect Rovers and Derry to try and sign up every half decent player with 2 legs just to keep them away from everyone else.

What do you mean "first with the news"? We aren't journalists. A bit of talk on here isn't going to make a difference either way .

I don't think Derry and Rovers are scrolling Orielweb's transfer wishlists for ideas. I don't think its a bad discussion to have with what others expect and see where we need strengthening.

Anyways, a successful summer for me would be getting Connolly and Macari sorted, while also getting contracts sorted for the squad before end of year and maybe adding a winger/Forward and maybe a more creative center midfielder, like a younger Ward. Maybe another center half, considering three of ours are in their 30s.

I would think Macari is almost def gone at the end of June, his deal was only 6 months I think. As for Connolly, I think I heard last week on one of the pods that his contract is not actually up at Dundee Utd and it runs until at least end of 2022, hence being 'offered' around. We won't have the financial muscle to outbid Glentoran and Linfield if they want him not the 2022 prudent run DFC in any case.

I'd abs love Connolly to stay though, been very impressed with him, top player.

Tough news for young Colm Whelan from UCD who has ruptured his cruciate.

Zak Delaney let go by West Brom was on loan at Bath this season. Left back and would be decent cover for Leahy, I'm sure someone in the league will snap him up.

Hopefully it is the best interest of all parties that Macari extends the loan till the end of the season.

Stephen McLaughlin is out of contract at the end of June. A good experienced player, he can play in a few positions left back or midfield.
He'd be worth a punt ,if he wants to go back to Ireland

Connolly will be a tough one to keep, we absolutely want him to stay and he does too, but the post P6 set up with modest spending might have an impact, other clubs may offer more.

We are lucky to have Shep on a 2 year perm deal though, his stock is rising all the time. Super signing.

Is he on a 2 year deal? I thought it was just for the season.

Luca Connell has been released by Celtic, young and could do a job at this level I'd say

Luca Connell was released by Celtic. Wonder if he would consider coming to Ireland
