Wasnít much quality for the new manager who was in the stand today. Worryingly some of the possibles donít seem to be progressing and a few of the older players look way off form.

Yeah, you'd have to agree. Diarmuid Whelan only came into it in the second half. O'Flynn did well defensively but couldn't get forward enough. Barry did well but he doesn't play to this level enough.
Didn't see any potential new players really.

I thought Aaron Carroll done well for Ballyroan in on Kinsella. Heís been at those divisional trial games before and didnít look out of his depth.

Shaun Fitzpatrick is a real prospect. Set up the second goal really well. Heís U-20 again next season I think but is definitely one to look at after that. Davin McEvoy is another young lad whoís very athletic and has a big left boot on him.

Maybe the beginning of the change we are all looking for but I doubt it...

Unless he goes and takes half of the current musical chair brigade it'll be awhile before we see a turn of direction.
While there is maybe 6 of the current executive doing positive work you can't outrun apathy it's like mud you'll eventually fade.

New blood contesting on many positions is the only way

Looks like they did a right job on him. Not even taking a softer seat. Gone completely.

Probably right to be fair saying 6 more like 4.

What is a bug bearer is the way you can hold a position for  5 years if you couldn't do musical chairs that would be beneficial but the fact you can hop into another vacancy for a further 5 and do this unlimited times is a breeding ground for cronyism I'd reduce this to 4 years max possibly 3.

I'd put a cap of 8 years accumulated in any positions to be the maximum any person could serve on the executive in any position

Hopefully the hurling side of the county run a number of candidates in an organised supportive campaign to put the pressure on the status quo.

I wouldn't be in the habit of naming a person but the current vice chair going to the actual chair would be a non progressive development
