LOI season 2018


lets be having ye lads
loads of xfer activity last few days

yer man Achille Campion went to Linfield, i never thought he was much use to be honest, that cup final equaliser was also a result of scandalous defending
CCFC signed Graham Cummins, different type of player to Seani obviously,
seems a long time now since that winner v Shels in Nov 2011 to give them the first div title… he will score goals tho, seemed to go out of favor at st. johnstone this season after been consistent enough for the last two

ill try and start assembling squad lists as i can
Dundalk and Limerick are the two must negatively impacted(Mcelhnny/macmillan/vemmelund leaving Dk is massive) whilst Rovers, waterford and Pats have added players, Rovers tho have no striker at all of note on the books and two horrificly bad goalkeepers
Hery and Akinade are two really exciting signings for waterford

few lads gone accross the pond
Fuad Sale went to Barnet, he’ll be excellent - obviously Mcelhenny to Oldham - Macmillan - st. johnstone, Simon Power UCD to norwich and the very very good Aaron Drinan has signed for ipswich from corks academy via waterford


Ramblers are playing CCFC next saturday in Cobh
El Classicobh will not be happening this season after last season’s alleged gambling scandal


Sligo beat RKSV Leonidas 5-4 yesterday in a friendly
the amateur side from the 6th tier of Dutch football were relegated from the aptly named HoofKlasse last season
they won the dutch amateur cup in 2012 that I assume is the equivialnt of the FAI intermediate cup that Liffery Wanderers beat Cobh Wanderers in last season’s final on penalties after drawing 2-2 AET in the Aviva


Interested in this mickee, but I doubt this lot will look away from their British gewgaws.


We are playing in a prestigous pre season tournament in Portugal






that lad is usually on the ball with this stuff…so it looks like he’s been a taken aback by this also.

all the talk of clarke moving across to southampton died down a bit tho since end of season,


hate this website but this is a big story breaking


rovers pre season


Ryan Delaney has left burton albion via cork city to join Rochdale on a 2 year deal.
i never thought he was as good as he was made out to be, bennett hold that defense togther but that’s a big loss . once again we see that the offer of a full time contract in england is so much better finacially than anything LOI can offer… Rochadale / St. Johnstone, etc… id imagine the standard is similar but the facilities, attendances and money involved are a world away from LOI

oh yeah Cameron king left Rovers,


Massive news out of Sligo this evening.

Chris “Hopper” Kenny has rejoined Wexford from the Bit O Red.

Sligo have also signed ex Liverpool youngster Adam Morgan.


Warren O"Hora has joined Brighton from Bohs
this is both great and sad to see as it robs the league of another fine young player



‪Following a pitch inspection this morning, today’s friendly with Cork City FC will go ahead as planned at 2pm in St Colman’s Park #CRFC‬


‪Former Norwegian underage international Garib Gerkondani (striker) is in the starting line-up for Cork City in a friendly with Cobh Ramblers today‬



Is young Kabia any good?


ah jesus he is yeah but he’s only a young lad
cobh will do the same again as last season with a very young team of players who have come thru the academy
its a risk playing them at this level tho, you always think back a few years ago when Billy Woods smashed young zico hastings leg in a pre season game …
LOI is so fucking physical, Henderson knows that, its ok v UCD, shels, but last year say v waterford and u have cunts like kenny Brown,
imagine kabia on a field with the likes of Stephen O Donnell or Gartland?
with the exception of the keeper that’s a youth team for cobh really

all the older lads with more experience play MSL with Wanderers like mick devine and john meade, its no life playing LOI first div if u have a family or a job or something really


Big Robbie Williams training with Galway at the moment and rumoured to be signing with them imminently…
