I have a very small passing interest but just can't get excited about it like down the years.

Best. Manager. In. 25 Years.

If nothing else, thanks for the laugh.

Best paid anyway.
Probably 3rd best manager we've had this decade.

I always want our manager to be madly successful.
However I'm ould enough to know sh1te when I see it and am not impressed by spin and/or hype or one sided nonsense.
Results, scorelines, performances,  team organisation etc -that's what impresses .

Has been confirmed that Stephen Rochford is staying on as Mayo manager.

No it hasn't - theres been no meeting between the CB and Rochford yet, Rochford has said he's staying for another year - different thing
Our buck announced that he's staying  in the "Down the Hatch News" before he was suspended.
No word from our (non) Co Board.
I see his apologist in the Ros Herald blames the players in his end of year State of the County team report.

Don't expect any criticism of the management from our local press.
Love the line the players "must ask themselves why they're shipping outrageous scorelines against the top teams."
I do hope the players ask themselves that question and send a note back to Mr. Cooney in the Herald and ask him to rephrase the question in a number of ways: why has the management not set up any discernible defensive structure after 3 years, why does the management persist with small light forwards as backs and why the hell is Cooney not asking McStay that question instead of the players.
I've read it again and am getting madder by the second.
Fcuk sake talking about players "aren't buying into"  S&C. FFS since when did players get to decide what preparations they do.
Then the comment that Ros players seem to believe that their skills and flair can overcome superior conditioning of other teams.
Then he repeats McStay's sh1te about the Ros public might not come out and watch 15 players behind the ball.
Defending doesn't have to be 15 lads standing around their own D area doing nothing.
How about every man becomes a defender when the opposition has the ball and tackle harass etc whoever has the ball wherever they gave it.
It's like the article was written for Cooney  by one of the people who got McStay the gig and is trying to head the critics off at the pass.
Disgraceful arse licking so called journalism.

If you have c 100k Nationalist Population in Belfast ( Antrim CB parts) you should be looking at 3,000 registered GAA playing members if you have the same percentage as Dublin.
Anyone know the figure or an educated guess.

Pat McEnaney performance for Meath in the 96 replay would surely have him ahead of John McDermott?
😀😁😂
Séamus Prior 1998 up there too >:(

State of football is a concern for an awful lot of GAA folk right enough.

Kilkenny hasn't 1.3m population.
I think hey've the smallest population of the 9 main hurling Counties.

And? So its just a numbers game? The county with the biggest numbers wins? Kerry have 37, 10 more than Dublin

Kilkenny won 11 from the year 2000

Dublin have won 5 in that same time period
So Leitrim just need to work harder and they'll win a scatter if AIs? ?
Anyway what about Antrim with 200k Nationalist population and a Traditional hurling area.
