Louie Annesley in the Gibraltar squad vs Scotland and Wales, officially listed as a midfielder this time.

Very odd. Esp as we leak so many goals ..

Have to say I am overall disappointed in Annelsey, really wanted him to do well, and even in his 'home' patch in Gibraltar he had a poor game that time when we played Magpies.

He can carry the ball and move forward, but for me the first part of a central defender should always be to defend, win the ball, win headers, be a nuisance, almost be animal like in the middle, and he is not. Possibly a bit harsh, but we are rock bottom of the division and we need more from defenders, he is far from what we need.

Maybe his agent will tell us or give us a hint .... Andy is a DFC fan and reads this forum regularly. There has been a close to complete management change since pre-season... would this allow Andy or better said his client to work with the club again.
ANDY BURTON A DUNDALK FAN BAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAH Pepsi I know you are a Peak6 shill but christ if you believe that Burton is a DFC Fan then I have some magic beans to sell you

we most certainly need 2 new strikers in the July tf window. 3 glorious chances so far, 2 to Gullan and 1 for Elliott. all 3 should be in the net against a very bang average Derry side. if we could score we would be moving up that table. that's our problem all season long though.

Stephen Kenny says he has already spoken with players who want to join St Patrick’s Athletic at the end of the season, and believes the prospect of the ‘best training ground in the league’ will aid his cause.
Kenny views his project with St Pat’s as a long term one and while there will be some changes to his squad in July, the Dubliner has indicated that events next winter will have more impact on his long-term vision.

In the aftermath of his first win at Richmond Park, a hard-fought success over Galway United that could easily have swung in the other direction, Kenny revealed there have already been positive conversations with prospective targets

Has Kenny really said he is talking to players before they've entered into the final six months of contract?

It was in the Star last week that Pats were after Archie Davies. He could be one of the players they are in talks with

daly won't be happy if there's chats with his players who should be focused on staying up .

daly has won far far more games than sk in the last few years .

spade a spade , ruthless kenny has been trading off a reputation for what he did here. very different coaching team at rovers (fail) Ireland ( fail ) and now pats (let's see)
sk is a club legend and local , but if he fails this season , his appalling media management /interviews etc will be under more scrutiny.

maybe , just maybe , come the summer . . oriel under daly , last year's fai cup winning manager , and who has just saved the club from relegation is more attractive than inchicore for top players .

Lads let Kenny talk to whoever he wishes .... should any of our players be in such conversations at this stage of the season with him or anyone else, then someone should be helping them to pack their bags and moving them on in July. What DFC requires now and going forward are players who want to be at the club for what it is and not only for the wages on offer.
