Can't really complain about the month.... if we're nit-picking, we should've comfortably beaten Waterford.

We look the favorites for the title.

Insanity.... Just insanity.

This month, we out-shot our opponents 172-26, with a 59-11 advantage in shots on target.  We've also out-possessed our opponents 59.2% - 40.8%.  This is also with 4 of the 5 matches on the road.

A perfect month.  Larkin was on fire!  Mandroiu was also lethal for us.  

2de43715a3ec9292144ce866825a8703.png
We've gone 20 points clear at the top and look at that goal differential!  We can now rotate the squad freely around European matches without worry of being caught in the league for the time being.

Signing!

We've made a signing to boost our depth at the central midfield position.  Cameron Macpherson comes to us after his contract expired at Scottish Premiership side, St. Mirren.  He made 55 appearances, scoring 2 goals  in his 9 seasons.  He will immediately step into my first team.

Signing!

Anthony O'Rourke, Irish Central Attacking Midfielder.  He comes to us from Limerick F.C. and finally we have a player that can provide cover for Mandroiu.  He is a spectacular player and he will play for the national team eventually.

An up-and-down month for us but that is to be expected.  After we beat Astana 7-0 at home, I decided that I'd be rotating as much as possible.  Somehow, we managed to continue without losing in league.  We are 2-2 with Fehervar FC and the return leg is tomorrow(2 August), so it's all to play for.

Champions League Second Qualifying Round

We got busted up away and get knocked out of the competition.

Home Leg - we certainly could have and should have done better.

34a4b43615740a907d1d8ccca8e273de.png

Away Leg - We probably deserved a hair more from the match and certainly didn't deserve to lose 4-1.

Heffernan is the jewel of our academy.  He is still very raw both technically and physically but he is getting there.

Neill Buckley is our starting left back and he's been great all season.  He is definitely more defensive-minded but we're working on his attacking.

What a month!  It was great and difficult all at the same time as we played 6 matches over 12 days, rotating reserves and first-choice players.  Next month sees this trend continue with us playing on the 2nd, 5th, and 8th and resuming on the 23rd, 26th, 29th, 31st, and the 3rd of November.

Just a few friendlies to stay sharp.  A great performance against Bolton Wanderers(League One at the moment).

We've also signed three new players on Bosmans from English sides as their contracts expired at the end of June.

Luke Jephcott - A Welsh striker - not an out-and-out starter but a great depth piece as fixture congestion will come into play down the stretch.  He comes to us after making 161 appearances for Plymouth Argyle across League One and League Two.

dee915b23eabafac35eddbdb9271ebee.png
 

Sean Robertson - An Irish attacker that will play on the right wing for us.  He brings good mental skills and decent ball control for our level.  He will add a bit of depth for us.

657b277ccaac80f20f9b00c9a7ae60de.png
 

Shane Flynn - An Irish all-round left sider.  He'll provide an option at a couple of different positions and will step into the team from day 1.

We are 18 points clear at the top.  My biggest source of entertainment this season has been the verbal spat between myself and Shamrock Rovers manager, Shane O'Connor.... we do not like one another.

A very busy month essentially sees us playing two matches each week.  We have a defined A and B squad at this point and have been alternating between those to stay fresh.  I would say that our A squad is head and shoulders above most teams in the league and our B side is better than most teams in the league, as well.

73ece35ff7d2c997cb10f16a6782d014.png
We sit 17 points clear at the top with two games in hand.

Ross Heffernan is showing great progress in training as well.  He has been getting quite a few minutes in the league and getting even more starts in cup competitions.

A pretty good month, advancing to the FAI Cup Semi Finals and winning the EA Sports Cup.  I would've loved to get something from FC Midtjylland but there is still a bit of a gap in talent, I guess.

We've clinched the league title so we can focus more on Euro Cup II and the FAI Cup.

Not great, but we're increasing our investments across the board.  Hopefully this will bear fruit in the next few years.
