    INteresting off season so far.

    We are looking pretty strong and will be at least as strong as last year (especially if Bisto returns in March)

    Dundalk have resigned everyone/not lost anyone significant, but thus far have been slow to add to the squad - can Kenny keep the siege mentality next year?

    Sligo look weakened, internal rumblings, losing a few players and slow to replace them- is the team on a downward trend?

    Shams (like ot or not) ahve probably done some shrewd business, releasing 9 high earners and replacing with 3-4 higher earners, I think the smaller squad will help Croly control the egos and als Martin Russell is the older/expereinced person that Croly possibly needs. tehy signed 2 very steady defenders (Madden and Kenna) and Croly no doubt has learnt from us how replacing your quarterback (Boler for Chambers) can work wonders- unfortuntely they realistically cannot be worse than last year.

    Derry have teh Roddy factor and always seem to be competitive. King of the siege mentality and Northerners love nothing better than a siege.

    Cork had a cracking finish to the season, they have signed astutely and could possibly replace Sligo as top 3 contenders?

    Its early days this summer, but its been interesting thus far. one thing to remember is how consistent Bucko has been as a manager the last number of years. Add to this he is probably the most experienced manager in the Premier League and an excellent motivator.

    2009 - 1st Div Champs & Cup Final (Fingal)
    2010 - Prem Div 4th (Fingal)
    2011 - Plotting his return to the Kingdom
    2012 - Prem Div 3rd and Cup Final (Pats)
    2013 - Pre Div Champions (Pats)

    Losing Ryan and Finn is massive. Who could they bring in to replace them? As good as Russell is Finn is a far better player

    Yup- they would be a HUGE loss and would realitically take them out of title contention.

    However the Ryan to canada thing is just a rumour (which hasnt been quashed yet) and Finn hasnt actually signed for anyone and no doubt Shams would want a decent fee.

    You would wonder how the last 24 months has effected them financially, 2 seasons with no europe and poor performance, comfortably the highest spending team (probably nearly double anyone elses budget), management pay offs, legacy contracts and poor morale. while crowds are still relatively high they are only 50% what they were getting and of course its well known that the 400 club has only a fraction of the active members it once had (still higher than our patrons though)

    It seems this season letting the 9 players go (most on decent money) means they can push the boat out and offer mad money for the likes of Zayed, RR, Kenna, Russell. Towell etc

    It seems on the face of it Dundalk have blown alot of their budget retaining towell as they have been very very quiet and ahvent been mentioned in the rumours for anyone really.

    as i said- interesting off season, its lining up for a very interesting 2014 season. Best league in the world!

    The siege of Derry wouldn't be widely commemorated by Brandywell regulars.

    With all our talk of Danny North, it's interesting to see that nobody has been quick to snap him up.

    I'm sure he has at least one offer to be fair. No real need for him to sign it yet if he thinks he can get better elsewhere

    Cork lost/will lose their 4 best players from last year too. Wouldn't be too worried about them

    If they have Rafter in place of Kilduff it's a massive step backwards. Elding might score a few goals for them but he'll have lost the surprise factor he had last year. Once we showed people how to handle him the goals dried up fairly quickly.

    Running out of options in the centre forward position. A tad concerning

    I'm not sure there are any options at all tbh. Not in this league. If we rule out those under contract (Quigley, Kilduff, North, Patterson etc) then I don't think I'd have any of the others as starters.

    bit in bold is my worry. plenty of players we could get that are just below that level, but not good enough for what we need.

    Fagan was our first choice centre forward until after the euro games and it did us no harm at all.

    Ive no doubt Bucko is scouring the place for a replacement to Bisto, remember there are strong rumours he could well be back with us by March.

    The worry would be that we are relying on him coming back though.
    As has been said I'm sure the management are looking at replacements but I think we need to be of the mindset that Bisto won't be back rather than hoping he might be so were well covered no matter what.
