Semi if you want to update your original transfers post
this
http://www.extratime.ie/newsdesk/articles/4744/

might be a good place to look
seems to be up to date (and id imagine they will keep it that way)

Galway seem to have signed a load of foreign(sounding) lads for the A team

http://www.galwayunitedfc.ie/squad-update-15th-january

Know nothing of them, possibly from the Brazilian contingent in Gort?
could be some interesting players in the group???

Anyone get Sligo @ 8s early in November with Hills? Serious value now, obviously.
Definitely a good price at 8s but at the minute we priced up way too short on the players we have signed. Even with the rumoured players we supposed to be signing at the minute id make us about a 5/1 shot. Of last years squad Russell(in negotiations), Boco(seems to want more cash) and McCabe(gone to shams) are the only ones not signed back with us but they were 3 key players and in our run at the end of last year and we really need to sign the former two back a.s.a.p. if we going to seriously challenge for the league. A few lads on trial this week from England and theres rumours that Raf Cretaro will be signing back but Cook will have to find a few unknowns because anyone in Ireland that i would have liked to see us sign has already agreed terms with Shams or Dundalk. Having said that, were not that far off but Shams have made some really good signings and having got the monkey off their back last year think they gonna be really tough beat this year.
Looking at the outright markets i think at this stage Shams should probably be odds-on with the players they have signed but i think there could be a bit of e/w value in Pats at 11-1 with Boyles and Powers. Pete Mahon appears to be assembling a decent squad(though losing Guy and McAllister will be hard on them)and with the uncertainty surrounding Bohs and Pats they should at least be able to finish 3rd and maybe with a bit of luck and couple more players could challenge us and Shams. A lot has been said about Dundalk but unless they sign a couple of decent defenders i see them been competitive but maybe not enough to make a push,
One bet i do like is the 25-1 with Boyles for Raf to be top goalscorer. I can only assume these odds are because their traders think he will be playing with Bohs this year but i assune once the money issues are sorted out up there he will move on and it will probably to us or Derry and i think once he makes his move his odds will definitely shorten. He would be a big player for us and we will create a lot of chances(just look at amond) if his injury problems sorted then he could definitely go close and has to be a great e/w bet at that price.

Former Shamrock Rovers and Bohemians centre-half Jason McGuinness has signed for Sligo Rovers for the 2011 season.

McGuinness, a two-time league winner, joins the Bit o' Red on a one-year-contract and will compete with Gavin Peers and Derek Foran for a place in the centre of the Rovers defence.

The 28-year-old is the first new signing for Paul Cook for this campaign, with 12 other players signed on from 2010.

Cook has revealed he had consulted Romauld Boco, who remains in talks with the club, about bringing in McGuinness after the pair were involved in a controversial incident in a previous match in 2009, which Jason expressed great remorse over and Boco subsequently accepted an apology for soon after.

Cook said: 'We were disappointed to lose Jim Lauchlan and did our best there but we had to move on.

'I know it might be an issue with some of our fans but we did speak to Romauld Boco and Rommy more than any more anyone welcomes Jason to the club.

'I think that is the most important thing and Jason will do a great job for us.'

Cook spoke of the qualities he feels the defender will bring to the Bit o' Red: 'He is a very experienced player. He's won league title and he brings height to the team which is important.

'When you see we've signed John Russell and Jason McGuinness in the space of 24 hours it gives our fans a bit of excitement as we approach the new season.

'We're bringing quality players to the club and that'll continue in the coming days or weeks.'
Strange one from every angle!

Never liked the amount of abuse he got! (& gave out about it to people)
Spoiler


Once Boco and him cleared it up it should have been put to bed
BUT saying that it still leaves a slightly dirty taste in the mouth imo

Hope he settles and gets on in the town because he is actually supposed to be a decent bloke (nearly wrote skin)

Biggest news in it for me is Jim Lauchlan is gone
Not really a surprise as his missus had a kid around the time we won the league cup and he was missing the family

Attempting to sack McGuinness was our way of getting around the situation? The PFAI stepped in to stop it.

Seems an ok guy, professional footballer not being impressive enough for him he tried to chat up a Bohs fans bird in a nightclub telling her he was a fireman.

Always like Jason, for years if Bohs didn't have a Sunday game he'd stroll up to the Phoenix Pk to have a look at his cousins and mates playing their Sunday League Division X stuff for Drumalee, Dunard & O'Devaney FCs etc.

Raf re-signed with us today. Hope some if ye got that 25s with Boyles, they have cut him to 16s now. Still reckon its a cracking e/w bet at that price.

well done on getting on at 25's

Didn't take the 25/1 myself
Was always coming back, was even on the lash with players after the cup win

As the bloke who was on Amond last season I'm kicking myself all day

not sure about the 16's with injuries he had last season but should score for fun

Still think its a good price. Injuries would be a worry allright but didnt he finish the season a lot better after having an operation??Just think that with a decent run of games i find it hard to see him out of the first 4 especially as we should probably score even more goals this season as we should be strong from Day 1 this year. An injury or a summer transfer to Twigg would be a big help coz in fairness to the guy he is a bit of a goal machine.

been a hectic few weeks for the LOI

Galway demoted (currently appealing - please insert nick leeson lols here)
Fingal gonezo
Mons in Prem
Bohs becoming the new misfits. Has-beens
Dundalk and Pats keep scooping up the top players that Shamrock dont want
Sligo looking pretty tight, after signing a racist to line up alongside the guy who got banned for abusing
Derry staying relatively quiet, have a small squad and rely alot on youth
Ucd prove theyre far from past it - who will be their new starlets?

And thats barely touching on the First Div . . .


Setanta cup game. Dundalk vs Linfield. The Gardai will have some job on their hands

Id expect Galway to win their appeal. We're quietly hoovering up some very good young players for the A team aswell, they'll have a good chance to push through to the first team.
