Bradley, Connolly, Adams, Williams, macari. Can't think of anyone else. And of those, I stand to be corrected on this, but are Bradley and Connolly only til July?

Adams is permanent. Word is Connolly is signing full time in the summer when his contract expires. Seems to be enjoying his time here

As with everything in life, we all have different viewpoints. For me Adam's is really starting to enjoy a new role in midfield. The attached clip is the highlights from last night. Sheppard had little to do all night, hence his reaction to his defence giving away a sloppy goal. As for Joe's assist at the end, I'll let you make up your own mind.

The pair are certainly enjoying themselves. They ALMOST have local accents.

Bradley and Williams are for the full season, no?

Connolly and Macari are on loan till the summer, but both are out of contract. Hopefully both sign on for a long term deals.

Great sign that all the incoming players are able to contribute to the team. I hope work has already started in re-signing players for next year.

I’m 99% sure James Rogers said that Williams is here for the season and won’t be recalled but that Bradley also has a season long loan but there is an option of him being recalled in the Summer.

Little bit of a shaky start but has gone from strength to strength in recent weeks and has become a fan favourite and got the supporters club player of the month award recently. Made a couple of incredible saves in recent games. As regards Adams the jury is still out on him. Has been ok but nothing special so far. Fair play to Brentford. Having a great 1st season in the EPL.
Thank you!

Looks like Bradley is off to Lincoln from rovers. Wonder if he’ll bring Stephen McPhail with him. It will definitely upset rovers form but it’s not like he’s been dominating like Kenny was. Yes he’s won 2 in a row but 1 was an 18 game league and they’ve had no opposition of note. Wonder who they’ll go for if he does leave?

Stephen McPhail will be joining him and Glen Cronin,say the reports.
Colm Whelan and Kerrigan from UCD Were on trial there last week https://www.the42.ie/stephen-bradley-li ... 8-May2022/

Its League 1,but some big names in that Division like Bolton, Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday , Ipswich

Robbie Keane will probaly get linked to Shamrock Rovers. They would likely have a decent amount of candidates

Bradley has Bill Hulsizer to thank for his league and a half. Had Bill never step foot in Oriel , Rovers wouldnt have come close to winning a league.

I hope he goes to England, he will be found out in 6 months.

To think that the only reason Rovers have enjoyed their period of “dominance” is because of incompetence of our previous owners.
The natural balance of Irish football has returned for good.

Wouldn't come close is nonsense. Dundalk weren't going to be Bayern Munich, and win the league every year.
Look at the money Rovers made from players sales, Bazuna,Burke, Scales. They were going to be thereabout regardless of American Bill.
