Irish Pair to Sign?
Monday, 10th Aug 2009 22:02
Bohemians pair Gary Deegan and Brian Murphy will join the Blues at the end of the Irish season in November, according to reports in Ireland. The duo will be out of contract, although Bohs will be due compensation for Deegan as he’s under 24.
While the players are believed to be joining the Blues in November, the duo could not officially sign until the transfer window reopens in January.
Town are understood to have been in talks with the Dublin club over the last few weeks in an attempt to land the pair during this transfer window, but the League of Ireland leaders are determined to hold on to their two best players until the end of their season.
Meanwhile, Roy Keane is ready to add Brian Kidd to his coaching staff, according to a tabloid newspaper.
Kidd, who Keane was coached by at Manchester United, has decided not to continue in his role as Paul Hart’s assistant at Portsmouth this season.
However, on Thursday Keane denied that he would be making any further changes to his backroom team: “No, that’s it in terms of the staff. I’m very happy with the staff who were at the club.
“That was a big issue for me when I came down. You always want to bring in one or two of your own staff in terms of people you can trust, but I also wanted to be fair to the staff that were here and they’ve all proved to be very, very good. We need a good team behind the first team, and I think we have that.”

Anger is Not a Good Emotion by TimS
I am starting to realise that as I grow older, I am harking back to a period of my life which seemed to be idyllic, but it probably was totally different in reality.
Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.
By Any Means Unnecessary by DazC
If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
