Heard that from a reliable source I met in the toilets in The Ivanhoe.

Internal committee wranglings holding the Byransford appointments up. The dinosaurs don't want to pony up for a big name but the younger people and players feel they need to speculate to accumulate. A former championship winner informed me that its been going on for years and is holding the club back

More dinosaurs on the loose. It seems they’re everywhere. These f**kers with their prudence, processes and safeguards are ruining everyone’s fun.

Imagine a committee who won't throw out stupid money for a coach who couldn't give a shit about your club and how they leave it after they go. Down football has got worse and worse with the input of these high paid coaches if we're honest about it. Obviously not all managers/coaches around Down are like that.

In Bryansford's case, they could throw out a huge sum of money and still win nothing. And he wouldn't be expected to even challenge for a league or championship. They do need a lift to make sure they don't get relegated though.

Don't shoot the messenger BAK. How do they get a lift? A good coach who can get them back to their glory days. Bryansford has great underage players and always has the talent pool at their disposal. They are a club with rich history and tradition and a few tweaks could get them back into the top 4 .

Are Bryansford going to win the championship in the next couple of years? That's their glory days.

No doubt they need a good coach in to give the team a new direction and make sure they don't get caught in the mix for the extra relegation places. That doesn't mean a committee can pay out whatever players might think they need.

I have an issue with the amount of money coming out of clubs into the pockets of people who don't see any further than the team they are working with at that current time.

Managing a senior team is not just turning up 10 minutes prior to the session and winging it. There is a serious amount of work that goes on behind the scenes so I agree with small expenses for coaches providing they are good. Byransford seems to be very strong at underage and they need to maintain their place in the top division. The last thing they need is another dog fight for survival.

They def pulled together a monster of a committee. Maybe spending more time building a committee than finding a manager
