9. EamonnCork - January 17, 2014

Question for IEL, are our respective Rovers in danger of getting our eyes wiped by Dundalk and Pats and maybe even Cork if we don’t get our act together in the transfer market?

Very much so, we have to get a replacement for Richie Ryan in and hope too that Croly has learnt from last season. If not I really cant see him lasting too long , especially with Mr Fenlon still out of a job.
Looks like we may be getting Zayed off the books too, which is good.
Russell and Ledwith should be decent enough signings for you but not as good as whats left you.

EamonnCork - January 17, 2014

Agreed on all counts. Think we’re about three short right now especially with Pats having added Quigley and Fahey. Elding, Dennehy and Rafter are all good catches for Cork and I have a lot of respect for Caulfield who I think will make a terrific manager. Why’s no-one signing Bradley?

Michael Carley - January 17, 2014

One Martin McGuinness, New Zealand cricketer, was very confused by the reception he got playing against Ulster on a tour.

Your failure to do a road bowling one sums up why the Left will never blah de blah etc . . .

It’s more likely than a rugby one I suspect (hope).

Bob Smiles - January 17, 2014
