Big time.
I don't think there has been a replacement for him or Sweeney, so far...but it's still very early days.
I think Kieran Daw will look to replace either one. I know he can play better than he has and he has certainly the ability to be the driving force behind the team, in a more central role.

I hear there may be a few announcements from the club this week. Watch this space.. and probably Scott's /StRoch's twitter first!!!

 

Football is a funny old game Saint Roch's and players and staff will inevitably come and go. Rab Maguire and John Sweeney both played in a team that missed out last year. If we kept the exact same squad do we think we would have got promoted this season??? There is no guarantees and certainly a lot of the teams we played last year either beat us, took points from us or gave us a right good game. We only steamrollered a couple and so freshening up the squad is no bad thing. We might be worse, we might might be better, who knows? It is true that on his day, Rab was the creative flair and flamboyance in the team. He could ghost past players and his intricate passing was a joy. He also know where the net was and his goals will be missed. Good luck at KRR. He was however an attacking midfielder and at times we were overrun. Defending is as important a component of a title winning team as attacking. Losing John Sweeney as well takes away a defensive edge to our personnel, so I have formulated a solution...... find a midfielder who has Sweeney's defensive attributes and Rab's flair!!! All application considered (just PM me) and I will filter and pass on to the gaffer, after debating the arse out of any suggestions with the rest of the folk on this forum. There has to be someone.... someone with the X factor... send me a report.. a file... an X File. I'm sure he and the truth is out there...

 

MTC!

Excellent additions to the club and interesting reading between the lines of the gaffer's statement to 1920 TV on the web site!!! It could be a very interesting pre season!!
