Don’t think you’ll find anyone saying anything other then that we were poor this year. Relegated for the first time in years and beaten pretty badly in Championship.
We can’t afford to transition from the previous panel to this one in such an abrupt way. Just look at how Jim gavin has managed the transition from older players to the younger ones - that’s how you want to do it and it’s what gives us such a strong bench in the football now.
Not even that but we simply cannot afford to lose other players long before their time due to personality clashes (Schutte x 2, Durkin, Ryan, Cronin, Danny).
Personally I dont believe these Gilroy rumours, lots of speculation going around.
