Pete did a great job with Fermanagh.
We lost alot of men when Canavan left and it was very much doom and gloom.
He blooded alot of younger players that had been left kicking their heals in that first year
and learned alot himself about the demands of modern football.
Year 2 was the pinnacle. Promotion to division 2 , and the run to the quarter final.
Year 3 was not a bad year either when you think we stayed in division 2 and were beaten by Donegal and Mayo in championship.
Year 4 could have been better but he lost a lot of men to retirement and injury.
The year fell apart after the Derry game. We should  have won that game and stayed up.
Instead we conceded a silly goal and got relegated.
It's strange when you consider where Down are now.
If we had of won that Derry game then it could have gave the panel the confidence to push on.
Instead we had a timid enough championship. We should have prefromed better against Armagh.

Pete has left the Fermanagh team in a better place than when he got the job.
He has developed a number of players and his enthusiasm for the game has rubbed off on them
Whoever gets him next will be lucky.

Seems to have lost some of the dressing room from initial reports.

Delighted for Roscommon and their supporters on here.
Have always found them a very knowledgeable and fair set of supporters.

McStay played a blnder.

Roscommon are one of the bottom 6 when it comes to playing numbers.
They showed that the lack of numbers argument is rubbish.
Great to see.

Clare are a good side.
Well drilled and a step up from Derry.
Interesting ....

If you look at the hurling model it's been a diaster.
The secondary competitions are all over by mid June.
None of the finals were on national TV.
The gap between the top tier and in the rest is getting bigger and bigger.

People over reacted last week on the back of Dublin hammering Westmeath.
The Sunday game had a part of the show dedicated to it.
You really think lads would play with that drive for a 2nd tier game ?
Not a chance.

Derry gave Mayo a serious scare and Longford seemed to have troubled Donegal .
Leave things alone

I look at the complete mess that the Gaa has made of the tiered hurling championship and that makes me have to say no.
Look at the Christy Ring final this year.  The hurling secondary tier competition.
Was not covered live on any of the national TV stations.
Vey little coverage in the media.
And all finished up by the end of June.
A secondary football competition would be given lip service for a year or two and then would slowly be let fade away into insignificance.  That's what has happened time and time again with "b" championships.

Fermanagh have lost over 20 players since our all Ireland quarter final against Dublin 2 years ago.
We cant turnover that amount of players .
No county can.

Esp one of your size. What has caused the turnover?

It's hard to put a finger on it.
Some lads retired.
Some lads just didn't want to train 4 or 5 nights a week.
Some lads went travelling.
I honestly can't think of any of the 20 plus lads who are not available who actually fell out with the management.
It's a Fermanagh thing if I am being honest.
When we reached the all Ireland quarter final against Tyrone in 2003 and were hammered we had a massive player exodus.
We reached the semi final the next year with most of the previous years squad not available.
In my lifetime it has happened quite a few times.
The remarkable thing is that we somehow keep on finding players despite our teririble underage record.
