Does Ger Brennan as Manager reflect the perceived status of Monaghan now post Banty?

The Monaghan job is a poisoned chalice as they will be favourites for relegation and are unlikely to compete for an Ulster championship again for at least a few years. It requires a complete rebuild and therefore I am surprised it went to an outsider. Banty was loyal to the older players and tried to squeeze one last Ulster title out of them. Problem now is that half the team needs replacing and Ger Brennan or whoever else gets the job is on a hiding to nothing. That said the whole process seems to be a mess and the way they treated their own job applicant looks very shabby.

Has been that way for them since returning to Division 1 in 2015 will anyone be surprised if they avoid the drop again next year?

Next season we'll have 4 home games,  probably home against Tyrone, Donegal, Armagh and A.N Other,  we're a safe bet to stay up  :)

On the manager appointment, for me it's a case of wait and see (and hope).

Is it only Donegal and Roscommon (from Division 1) that are managerless?

Nothing coming from us yet.

Theres a star man waiting in the sky. That's this weeks rumour in Roscommon. Don Conellan the week before, Pat Flanagan the week before that.

Well, you have received the O'Rourke snub.

Auld mister Brennan is staying with Moorefield

One of the advantages of the shorter season is that Donegal and Monaghan have 2 extra months to find a manager. Sunningdale for slow learners.

Seven football counties are looking to appoint a new manager: Roscommon, Donegal, Monaghan, Wicklow, Limerick, Westmeath and Wexford. Anyone want to guess which county will be last to appoint a new manager?
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Money will make anything happen. It's a low pressure job.

Will he be able to stay on the podcast circuit?? Bound to be making him a few pound the Wicklow job must be able to replace that income.

Good luck to him he seems a decent sort and clearly loves the game hope he goes well.
