I suspect this will be a move towards a more defensive game plan. Pascal has the best team in Offaly by a mile, but he has set his teams up to defend en-masse and hit fast, hard and in numbers. He's used to a couple of marquee forwards so he should be used to the likes of Quinlivan and Sweeney. Interesting stuff.

Any body hear Rochford's intentions yet? Or was he giving himself until the 31st of October to decide? I assume he will stay on anyway.

If he isn't staying on he's going to leave Mayo high and dry for 2018 at this stage.

Will he stay on with Rhode?

He might I suppose, but he has a young family and if he's in Thurles 3 days a week, it might be hard to be in Rhode another 2 or 3 nights.

Seems they admitted that he applied for Donegal job before he went near Sligo. (Facepalm)  ;D  ;D ;D

Cathal Corey has never managed a county team at any level or even been part of a county setup. Significantly he went for county underage jobs in his native Tyrone but was not successful. His claim to fame seems to be applying for the Donegal job and again was unsuccessful. Now hes managing Sligo senior team. I despair!

Anyone would be better than Carew who was kept on too long leaving a lot of damage behind.  Cathal Corey,Tony Scullion,Conleth Gilligan all on Sligos management should that mean extra focus to improve them defensively?

All it means is they didnít charge too high a rate to do the job.

Is his backroom team confirmed or is that just speculation?

Confirmed along with Rooney.

Not sure what to make of it all. Couldn't be worse than what came before. Most important to be his own man and not listen to the people that usually find a way into the county managers ear. Need some of the mid thirties guys to be thanked for their service and move on with young lads. Especially the ones who haven't had anything to offer for the last 3-5 years.

Gilligan was a forward with Derry, he is probably looking after the attacking side.  Scullion om defense.
