You heard here first. The Cassidy brothers have already got the job

Eunan, Barry and Aron?

 Harry, Dan Joe, Brendan, Kevin, Patsy, Frankie and Willie?!

Yunes are all being very clever. Yunes know rightly who I mean

since 1998 Derry haven't went outside the county to appoint a manager,Mullins wouldn't have known the club scene that well but was the last manager to win an Ulster title,o rourke had a spell in the loup which gives him some insight to the politics and understanding of the club culture in Derry all be it a few years ago hardly lazy analysis.

Did Mullins not have a good few players from the 93 team to help him to that Ulster title?

Mullins was teaching in Donegal at the the time, so he might have had some knowledge of Club football in Derry.
Mullins would have had the Downeys, Tohill, Brolly, McKeever, Coleman, Heaney, Burns.. I'm sure Gormley was still on the panel as well.

all the names mentioned were there, so its not an accident they won another Ulster with the quality there, a much easier job for an outside man then. Now would be much tougher as building from a low base. However I think it would be a good time for the next man, if its a good appointment, starting in division three you can only go up. If the players buy in they would return to division two quickly.


It's very funny how the team that win us an all Ireland could be tge fault of today's failing. That was was all up their own arses and and always fighting with the top men in the county board and didn't they even go on strike and not play a league game.

That was the start of the 94/95 campaign, with Moran in charge, after the county board shafted Coleman.  Only a few of them went on strike, not the entire '93 panel.

Best of luck to Mackers and the minors.
Three Ulster finals in a row is some going, when you look at our previous few years in this comp.

Hi all, some of the names being put forward for senior job are underwhelming. 
Mal orourke ain't going to happen, he won't leave Monaghan I'd imagine.  We need to look elsewhere imo.

Our CB have a decision to make whether to cut ties from all '93 possibilities and go for a younger set up or go back to our glorious '93 men again.

Possibilities from '93 generation - Damian Cassidy. Fergal mccusker, enda gormley, Brian mcgilligan, Gary Coleman.  Any more?   Prob D Cassidy most 'proven' at club level there

With the apparently favoured " inside" appointment having ruled himself out and the allegedly favoured "outside" appointment unavailable where to now for Derry's new Senior football manager?
The rumour monger is now at full throttle as to the identity of three former County managers who supposedly have not ruled themselves out as either  wanting to be the new manager or having a central role in the backroom team.

Whatever about the truth of that it is essential that an experienced manager with excellent man-management skills and innovative but balanced playing strategies is selected.

However, the first prerequisite for a suitable Derry manager is that he is successful in ensuring that all previously unavailable players (including those who were injured being fully fit) make themselves available to play.

Derry simply can not afford to be without players of the quality of Dermot McBride,Kevin Johnston,the McGoldrick Brothers,Niall Holly,Emmett Bradley,Padraig Cassidy,Christopher Bradley,Niall Toner,the McKinless Brothers and the mercurial Terence O'Brien.

If they had been available to Damian Barton along with the Slaughneil All-Ireland Three during all the League games, Derry would definitely be in Division Two and Damian's re appointment probably a mere formality!But he did not have that luxury.It is imperative that the new manager does have it.

Quite well?! They won the Ulster Championship! They were unstoppable in the first 15 minutes.

Win an all-ireland then i be impressed like the teams from the 80's! Cant remember when derry started to set the bar low! Derry in the 80's and early 90;s were always favourites for ulster titles at minor level!

Who wants the big job? McIvor doesnt want it. McErlain doesnt want it. The Downeys don't want it. The Cassidys don't want it. The Bradleys don't want it. Tohil doesnt want it. Gormley and McCusker don't want it. Banty McEneany doesnt want it. ORourke doesnt want it. McGrath doesnt want it. Cribben doesnt want it. Looking good then.
The men on this page don't want to talk about it. They did their job already. They got rid off the manager and they have sneaked away.
