Happy he has re-signed, but while he finished well, far too often he looked a bit flat-footed last season. I hope he has gotten a new trainer or something so he can get a bit more bounce in his game, or be a bit more dynamic.

Seemed to get a free knocks this season when he was just hitting his stride. Will be interesting to see how he performs if he can remain injury free. Himself and Lewis could strike up a very dynamic partnership in the centre of midfield.

We need a left back, right back, center half and cover for the wings as well and then I think we're ready to rock for next season. Really decent spine assembled for next year.

Great to see Doyle signed up, a little surprised the Boyle got a 2 year deal myself. As mentioned above, he looked flat footed and lacking pace for much of the season. Lets hope he was injured and they hope to get him back 100% fit.

Great to get a few deals done eo early. Doyle was s big loss which coincidently was when we started hitting a bad patch. Boyle deserves another go, he does need to improve this year after a number of nad mistakes last year. However i will be fearful if our centre back partnership is him and mccourt.

I think Boyle on a 2 year deal (prob reduced terms) is good news, remember he started last season off just back from injury. Played in most games, he is of course not at his 2016 peak, but IMO good to have his experience back.

That said would like to see a strong new player join to play alongside him, McCourt under contract, he should be no 4 choice and plenty of plenty of work to do to convince.

Good news also on Doyle, there is a player in him !

They need somebody to compete with kelly. He has missed a lot of football over the last few years . Dundalk were after Ryan Graydon during the July window but he went to Derry. He was excellent in the Cup final.

They need more pace in defence and and a direct player in midfield . Doyle , Sloggett and Lewis are tidy players but they don't run direct.

I think James R had said in his last article that from the ones mentioned, he was least likely to join us.

I thought it was ourselves and Rovers who were in for him, it makes sense that he'd choose Shels for more first team football
