    Glen Middleton is a nice pickup on loan. I don't know McNamee but just with the addition of Middleton and selling off Murphy I think the transfers are a positive so far.

    Battle for 3rd is really the top story this season, Cork being the biggest threats to that, good to see a run of wins in the last month though, just what the team needed. Good to see you get rid of an older player and introduce two younger players, not that I know who that are

    I was pleased I could get Middleton (albeit it I splashed nearly the entire wage budget on him) - becomes the joint highest rated player at the club and injects much needed flair and pace down the left hand side. McNamee will join in the summer, I'm hoping he can be a big part of a title push next season as our current CAM hasn't been involved as much as I'd like.

    Yeah the battle for third is exhilarating! Ourselves and Cork have been inseparable all season. From a selfish point of view it would be nice to pull away from them but I wouldn't mind it going the distance from the story's point of view.

    Third place seems manageable. Hopefully you will get some goals in toward the new season.

    Good schedule for the next month, a win over Cork City will be huge at this point of the year.

    Battle for number three rages on. The Cork matchup is obviously important, and Waterford and Limerick should be six points. Speaking of Limerick:

    "There was an Old Man with a beard
    Who said, 'It is just as I feared!
    Two Owls and a Hen,
    Four Larks and a Wren,
    Have all built their nests in my beard!'"

    Cork game is indeed massive, I seem to have the upper hand on them this season, while I've struggled on occasion against teams lower down (Bohemians for example). Must be that big game mentality. B)

    In fairness that was still better than anything the team have produced this season.

    Seems like a good chance to secure third slipped a bit with the surprise loss to Bohemians. The win over Cork does give you a little breathing room though.

    I was braced for a dramatic finale, but then it hit me that the 4th placed team would also qualify for Europe as a result of Shamrock Rovers' cup win in March. So I've just spared the drama and played up until the end of the season.

    Naturally the board are pleased and I'm more than happy to stay on for another season and enjoy a first taste of European football, but also to challenge in the league - yes 30 points is a lot to claw back but I'm confident that if I can bring a couple of key signings in, we can see a vast improvement to our points tally.

    Congratulations on European football. 30 points will be very hard to overcome but it can be done with a few big signings and improving the record against lower teams.

    Congrats on EL football, a successful season for you, finishing 3rd as expected too. A strong title challenge next season and maybe a surprising European run and some bigger clubs will be sniffing for you to manage their clubs.

    Nice job achieving your goal of Europa League qualification. The signings will be important if St. Patrick's want to challenge Dundalk for the title. Next season might prove to be a bit of a balancing act.
