Joe Dunne: Wishes O'Toole well

O'Toole enjoyed a loan spell with the Pirates last season and has now signed a three-year contract at the Memorial Ground.

U's boss Dunne believes the 24-year-old has made a good career decision.

He told the club's official website: "I think John-Joe has made the right choice of club for this move.

"In the current market he was in a positive position of having a choice and I feel he's made the right one for himself.

"His opportunities here would have been limited with the competition for places in the centre of midfield.

"On behalf of everyone at the club, I would like to wish him well and thank him for his time at the club."

O'Toole signed for Colchester in January 2010 and made a total of 76 appearances during his time in north Essex.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
