Re: Time to re-set. Who's in?

I agree with what you say about the quality of players. I didn't think the core of what we have right now would return, but they're still here. They had every reason to get out but they chose to stay. There are some rumours that some championship clubs are interested in Lenihan, Bennett and Mulgrew...
