Quote from: square_ball on October 04, 2023, 08:35:13 AMWonder did Joe have the same grievances about Brian Mullins when he took the Derry job or is it because he simply doesn't like Mickey Harte?
If you were to, ah hem, believe Brolly in an article of his last year were he said he was instrumental in bringing Mullins in as Derry manager

Quote from: bannside on October 02, 2023, 01:49:04 PMNever heard anything but top notch feedback re Deeds. Was always going to make the step up from exceptional player to exceptional coach/manager.


Always had a deet tooth!  ;D
Will do well, top bloke

Sometimes it's no harm to have some one with a different view. Doing the liberal thing is not always doing the right thing. They might not agree with you, they might not be totally right (or wrong), but there is always something they will ad to a debate.

Even when they rile up hatred towards marginalised people resulting in attacks on them. Loads of horseshite lad and you know it.

This is it, the hatred towards other human beings. I've zero room for that point of view, it's a point of view that absolutely disgusts me.

The guy is a nutcase.

No idea who he is, but you'd need to be someone very vile to be suspended from that station I'd have thought

Quote from: twohands!!! on September 25, 2023, 01:29:54 PMIt will be interesting to see if Derry use more of the lads in the squad under Harte compared to Gallagher.
Surely there will be a change in approach in terms of Derry's use of the subs bench.

There's also the possibility of getting lads who were outside the panel previously to join up.
However given his previous form with Tyrone it's not like there will be a mad rush of lads bursting down the door to sign up especially if you are a forward given how many negative reports of what playing under him is like.

I really can't see Harte being very concerned with long-term development of youth given he's unlikely to see any benefit from it. That's pretty standard with outside managers in all sports, nevermind one in his 70s.

He'll hardly do a Gallagher on it whereby he wouldn't allow Lachlann Murray play for Derry U20s in their knock out tie and instead played him for two minutes for the seniors against Fermanagh.

Football is absolutely ruthless at county level, Lachlan has 2 x Ulster Senior winners medals at home.

Quote from: 93-DY-SAM on September 22, 2023, 05:02:26 PMIs anyone else still having big problems at times (more often than not) with pages loading and the forum being incredibly slow?

At times it does respond properly and when it does it flies but in general it is still very slow.

9 times out of 10 it's v slow. Tyrone owned board maybe? Sore on us Derry posters ;D

Lets see how derry do with him and how they feel after the 3 year period.

Let's, but I find it hard to process you boys belittling and hating on the man who delivered you 3, yes 3 All Ireland titles! Not wise

Quote from: laceer on September 21, 2023, 08:50:35 AMHarte got 18 years in the Tyrone job, 13 after his last All Ireland, so not like he was forced out before his time a lá Eamonn Coleman. Greatest Tyrone manager ever but it was time to hand over the reins.

Moving to a neighbouring county for a chance of success, and a few quid no doubt, was always going to rankle with his own people - when Sean Cavanagh/Conor McKenna/Kyle Coney spoke to AFL teams he was always quick to bring up loyalty and playing your own game for your own people. Does this not apply to management also?

I couldn't see McGeeney manage Tyrone, or Jim Gavin manage Kerry - or Harte's predecessor in Tyrone, Big Art McRory go to manage a rival - that's a measure of loyalty to your own in my opinion. With Harte it feels like it's more about himself proving a point than loyalty to his own county.

This is 100% spot on. Mickey convinced many of player to commit to tyrone out of loyalty. First chance he gets he goes to a main rival.

Like a typical religious zealot he is as two faced as they come.

Mickey only cares that he is always right even when the evidence shows hes not.

Using one of the reasons Tyrone landed 3 All Irelands is a strange stick to beat the man with! You should be applauding the man for this.

Ulster Championship 2024,so many subplots... Looking forward to the draw. Donegal, Tyrone and Derry all on the one side of the draw or Derry / Tyrone kept apart to a potential final...

Quote from: JoG2 on September 19, 2023, 12:12:26 PMWill be a very interesting year a head in Ulster. Yesterday's man has just taken Louth from Div 4 to Div 2,Leinster final and v close to Div 1 this year.
Will be a bit on the mad side to see Harte wearing a Derry gilet and beanie hat on the sideline  ;D

Head says Harte, heart says Horse, if you know what I meenagh....

Ok, maybe yesterday's man is a bit harsh! :) I'm looking forward to see how we shape up in the National league this year. It'll give us a good idea of what to expect at the business end.

Kind of hoping the league game is in Healy Park! :)

Quote from: giveherlong on September 19, 2023, 09:42:20 PMYou'd have to think that the new setup will feel like a step down for the Glen players when they rejoin the panel going from O'Rourke/Porter to Devlin and Harte.

What way did G Devlin finish up with Slaughtneil? Did he win a championship and was given the road then?

Unreal the crap thats talked by some clowns on here


Anyone know when the league / Ulster Championship fixtures will be made / released?

Quote from: trailer on September 19, 2023, 01:55:38 PMIt's going to cost Derry. Imagine what all that money could do for youth and underage. Instead it's going to be skimmed off the top and into the Senior team.

This has disaster written all over it for Derry and Harte

Ha, surely you're not that niave??  ;D
You're like a wee Jack Russell running around a big field with this news.
