Ok, so obviously the money's so crazy in England now with the TV deals that we're never going to hold on to the best players in this country.... and the same happens in other walks of life too... but isn't it amazing how the best players in Ireland leave these shores and STILL we continue to produce more and more quality players.

Imagine how well our teams could do in Europe if we had the resources (like a TV deal? Hello? eir Sport?) to keep at least some of them. Look how Cork missed Maguire in Europe this year.

Bazunu the latest to go - 400k to Man City.....

Add him to an ever growing list..... Forrester, Maguire, Burke, Ogbene, Towell, Boyle, Horgan... it goes on and on.
