Did Fermanagh get removed from Ulster when I wasnít watching?

Everyone from Ulster is not my man.


Iím ambivalent about the appointment at best, but youíre just trotting out the worst cliches here.
I was just following on from a worse clichť from Syferus. His CV speaks for itself however most of his success has been with professionals. Open to correction I but I don't think Roscommon had someone of his calibre on their management team before though they aren't professionals and it depends if their players have the time to buy into what he wants to achieve.

Very good appointment there if the players buy into it.

Itís his job to get the players to buy into it, if they donít itís a bad appointment and he will have failed.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

These players have achieved more in the last ten years than OíRourke has so you could as easily be referring to them dragging him over the line.

Itís far from a done deal so your man may not even be good enough to make the first hurdle..

Mike McGurn I said would be a very good appointment. A native of Enniskillen, County Fermanagh.

A strange choice for the Rossies! As a Sligo man I would be pleasantly surprised as I thought they had more buying power. O'Rourke was with Kildare, Down, Armagh, Louth and Queen's winning a grand total of nothing. A modern day GAA journeyman.

Who's in his backroom team?

He won the Sigerson cup with Queens and was on the Kildare management that reached the All Ireland semi final and very close to winning it. If the rossies manage that they will be more than happy I'd say.

Mike McGurn the S&C coach. A good few Roscommon  players need good conditioning.

He managed Queens to a Sigerson? Don't think so. Maybe part of a backroom team but he certainly was not manager. The only job he has had as actual front man manager to the best of my knowledge was Louth and based on memory it was a disaster.

Assistant manager with Queens and they haven't got close to winning the Sigerson cup since that win. Look at where Louth are now after a number of managers, I think that says more about Louth than O'Rourke.

Plenty in the county less than happy with the appointment. Itís no surprise to see you Stanning for an Armagh man, though.

The same tÓts in the county who complained about what McStayís cost was better keep their knives sharpened because OíRourke and his buddies wonít be coming in cheapily. I can think of plenty of better ways to spend that amount of money.

If he gets the job I wish him the best but he has a hard task ahead of him given his track record in Louth and the players that wonít be available next year.

In other words you wish him the best as you sharpen the knife.

Looks like four evenly matched quarter finals. All hard to call

I wouldnít be ruling out burren

Your have to fancy the winners of Scotstown and Burren to win it outright. Our young lads will give Belfast some wallop this week so they wonít be fit to wag. Gweedore will be strong outsiders.

You're a great msn for playing down Cross's chances haha. Got Kerry blood in you?

It's what Cross men do. In reality the rest in Ulster will be looking over their shoulders with Cross now there and its going to take a very good team to beat them.

To leave three Chelsea players unmarked on that goal in the 6th minute of injury time was criminal. Mourinho sides didn't win titles defending like that.

Does Paul Galvin have a plan B under that silly looking hat?

Good draw for Armagh.

Beat Down, then Cavan for a place in the Ulster Final. Handy enough.
Stranger things has happened.

Jaysus that Emlyn mulligan is some negative hoor. He'd be poison in the dressing room.
A honest but awful attitude.

Slightly better 2nd half with a few shots on target. Poor by Pep to take off Aguero the first choice penalty taker. Manchester City's long wait for win in Anfield goes on a real bogey ground for them.  Four games in a row without a win for Liverpool however they should get back to winning ways as in the next month they are playing a number of rubbish sides.

Not a single shot on target in that 1st half. A game that hasn't lived up to the Sky hype so far. Graeme Souness thinks Aguero should have got a penalty but he didn't appeal for it because he knows you don’t get a penalty in front of the Kop he said.

A fight so well controlled by Khabib but lost his head after the match.  McGregor did well to last 4 rounds when he was wrecked by the end of the 1st round.
