    So theres some huge differences between Limerick now and when i first played as them 2 years ago, When i started they were in the league below, in their old stadium worth a lot less and not even Professional so a good 3 seasons work on previous saves has already been done for me.

    Cool man, Finn Harps were my main rivals in my first season as Limerick a couple of years back and have always been a bugger of a side to beat. is Curtis or Mchugh still their?

    McHugh was there for the first season but he was like 34 or 35 so i let him go at the end of the season. Hell of a target man

    So my season expectations consist of a top half finish which is top 6 out of 12 teams so it could be harder than it sounds. I would like to get some Europa League qualifying football for next season which needs a top 4 finish.

    I brought in a couple of new signings, an AMC i have bought before and a RB who is quite old but much better than the rest of my options. I also have a new GK coming in the summer as my one is retiring at the end of the season, they were all free transfers.

    Well it was a very busy first month as we played a staggering 8 games in the opening month and it went well despite not really knowing the tactics or players, we won both of our cup games.
    We started the league season poorly with a loss to holders St Pats before going on an impressive 5 game unbeaten run in the league with 3 wins and 2 draws to end the month.

    Are you going to alternate between this and nottingham forest?

    So the big result was at the end of the month were we beat Cork City our main rivals in the Munster Senior Cup and have all but secured my trophy with an easy Final waiting. We played 5 times in the league winning 2 games and drawing 1 whilst we lost twice but to Dundalk and Sligo Rovers who are Title Contenders.

    It was not a good month for us in the Cups, we lost to local rivals Cork City in the League Cup before having a shocker against lowly St Mary's.
    We lost our opening game of the month in the league but soon got back on track with 3 decent wins in a row including beating St Pat's a top team we lost to earlier on in the season.

    Up in 4th place at the moment and already almost halfway through the season i think the league starts to show your real standings. We should be able to secure a top 6 finish with Shamrock Rovers in 7th already 8 points behind us.

    It was a tough month with our Top Goalscorer out injured we lost to Shamrock Rovers at the start of the month before beating local rivals Cork City in our next game, we then as expected lost to Sligo Rovers before struggling to draw against Bohemians. We ended the month well though with a comfortable win over UCD.

    Very happy with being in 4th place but were not guaranteed a Europa League spot in 4th as it depends on the Cup Winners but were only 1 point off 2nd place at the moment.

    So with all the cup competitions over for us this year its all about the league and we hit a bit of a topsy turvy form first off managing a draw with Dery before beating St Pat's again the current league holders and then beating Athlone.
    We then ended the month with a loss to Dundalk a narrow win over Bray Wanderers and then getting thumped by Shamrock Rovers.

    4th place with 6 games to go and im desperate to hang on in their and confirm a place in the Europa League qualifiers, we could still get 4th and not get European Football depending on who wins the Cups so 3rd should be our aim for the last few matches.

    September 2014 - First Youth Intake

    So on previous Limerick saves i have some amazing players come through the youth intake and have been the main focus of my saves from David Cox, Mark Coughlan and Adam Maher.

    So the best two prospects are defenders with the LB really standing out.

    Thats brilliant mate, i definitely have an affinity for Limerick now so it feels good to be back, ive done more updates on the save in the past day or so than i had in the previous month on my last save.

    It wasnt the good end to the season i was hoping for but it didnt affect us, we started off with a bore draw against local rivals Cork City before getting smashed by Sligo Rovers. We did end the season on a high with a 3-0 where McSweeney grabbed a couple of good goals and our 2 standouts from the youth intake made their debuts.

    Especially as hes so young! Ultimate aim is to tie him down for 4 years the big bonus of being professional now. When i was first Limerick two seasons ago they were in the first division so they have improved a lot by themselves so its put me around 3 seasons ahead of where i would be last year or two.

  27. Got a bit overly excited seeing this is back! McSweeney has been mint considering he is only 16! Lets hope for another one of those gems of a regen we have seen in the past few stories!!

    Thanks mate, we barely even need any regens as a lot of our best players are under 21 like McSweeney, Whitehead and Doherty, i cant wait to get into the Champions League and make McSweeney break some Limerick records.

    Semi-Pro status is killing me at the minute, just lost 3 quality youth regens to Shamrock Rovers because i couldn't off them proper contracts. Finances are 200k in debt aswell so i need to push for those european spots this year.

    My finances are shot to, i havent even done that much to hurt them in only signing a few players, im at a stage where next season i need to win the league and get that champions league money or im going to have to sell some players come the end of the year, i should get a bit of money around august for the europa league too, the problem is you qualify for europe in october but dont get any prize money until next july/august

    No transfer budget and only a few hundred pounds extra in the wage budget, our finance are in around 500k of debt too.

    Players Out

    So i managed to make around 100k by selling former captain Duggan who had been out on loan last season anyway and i also sold Oji the player i declared our best last season as he didnt want to sign a new deal and is pushing 30.

    Players In

    So i only brought in 3 players on free transfers, central midfielder Chambers is the key signing and should boss my midfield from here on out, i also signed a couple of defenders to bolster our options at the back with one coming from Finn Harps.

    The media predicts that we will only be in 7th one place better than they predicted last season but a lot worse than the 3rd we did finish. For me this season is top 2 or bust, i feel as if my finances wont survive no European football.

  35. Good move signing Bonner. Top quality centre back - one of the players i lost on a free! Keep and eye out for Brandon Miele for a Centre Mid got him on a free 3rd season.

    So we started the month with a lucky win in the cup and McSweeney looking good before his injury we then won 4 of our opening 5 league matches with Rory Gafney on fire up front after playing a lot of last season on the wing.

    2nd place with a game in hand of top spot whilst Gaffney and Doherty are in top form at the moment.

    We beat the Ramblers in the cup to set up a big Munster Senior Cup Final against our fierce rivals Cork City and we also carried on our decent form in the league with 3 wins in a row before getting stopped by Shamrock Rovers in a bore draw.
    We then got thrashed by Cork City 4-0 who we will face in the Cup next month before getting back on track with a 3-0 win over St Pat's after a Gaffney hattrick.

    It was the perfect month as we progressed in two of the Cup Competitions and won all 4 of our league games this month and best of all McSweeney is back after 3 months out and scores two on his return.

    Not a bad result away from home to pick up a decent draw and get an away goal in a game where we dominated possession but little in the way of proper chances.


    In between all of those European games we actually had some league games to play too.

    Well we never really looked like winning this match but centre back Folan getting sent off before half time certainly didnt help, Oh well thats the European adventure over for this season but im sure we will be back and even better next year.

    Either side of the Genk loss we managed to pick up 3 important league wins in a row before suffering a 1-0 defeat to Bohemians who literally scored the latest ever goal in the history of the world. We then beat St Pat's with McSweeney grabbing a hattrick before being held to a 2-2 draw against our main league rivals Sligo Rovers.

    4 points clear with only 6 games to go as Sligo Rovers slip up in a couple of games where they could only manage draws instead of wins like us.

    Looks like we are trying to throw the title away with a thrashing handed out by Shamrock Rovers and poor draws against Dundalk and Galway and our only win of the month was against Longford Town.

    Despite that poor month Sligo Rovers didnt do much better and were still some how 3 points clear at the top of the table with 3 games to go.

    Still drives me mad that your Limerick Stories are in Thomand Park since we've moved back to the Market Fields
    My one huge criticism of SI is that they're yet to put that into the SI database. Still, only a minor gripe

    Gratz on the league title. Gaffney looks like he had a solid season; finishing with 16.
    Maher looks like a nice, solid regen. Good Determination, N.Fitness adn work rate so he'll be able for the Irish league no bother.

  48. Hmmmm.. Is this new Maher related to Thomas Maher

    Gaffney has been brilliant especially as he mainly plays out on the wing so McSweeney can play up top, Ive only the one player over the age of 30 so the youth team is definitely the key to any success i hope to have. thanks for reading

    I can only hope! Along with Gareth Maher the decent prospect i have got two more youngsters who are rubbish called Mike Maher and Craig Maher.
