I presume Pete McGrath was told a lot of the players that didn't make themselves available for selection in 2017 won't in 2018 either? or Maybe he has eyes on the Derry job? I hope he didn't resign to get it because it is already ea deal that the minor manager is going to get it for a 6 year term to get Derry into the super eight competition by 2023 and he will be allowed to bring his managing team with him.

And what financial arrangements will be put in place to sustain that ?

Damian McErlean and his back room team are more likely to be interested in the 2018 Under 20 County Management role

Mc Erlain is not near ready for this level, no senior experience what so ever. Harte before he became tyrone managar has won at minor and u21, but in my eyes, equally important had won at senior club level as well where he had to deal with adults who had adult issues. If Mc Erlain was appointed he would be up the swannie. He needs to bide his time. As I have said we have a host of talent from 23 and below, getting a capable person is very important, and lets be honest, he will have no support from the clubs nor supporters bar a few hundred.

Hopefully the 2018 Derry Senior football manager will have the following  three major selectorial problems to deal with next year!!!

 (1) Imagine trying to pick  six defenders from the following.

 N Keenan,B Rogers,D McBride,K McKaigue,C Nevin,M McEvoy,L McGoldrick,C McKaigue,Sean L McGoldrick,K Johnston,C McGrogan, C McWilliams, N Forrester,O Duffin, G Mc Kinless, C Kielt,C McFaul.

(2) Try selecting  two midfielders from the following.

C McAtamney,Emmett Bradley,P Cassidy,N Holly and A McLaughlin.

(3) Pick six forwards from the following.

D Heavron,C McFaul,E Lynn,N Toner,T O'Brien,N Loughlin,B Heron,R  Bell,M Lynch, J Kielt,C Bradley,D Tallon,E McGuckin,D McKinless.C O'Boyle,S McGuigan and A McLaughlin

I am sure that I have left out many obvious choices but any one who follows Derry football would appreciate that the County's chances of future success would increase immeasurably if all of the above and more were available to the new Manager.I did not put in our top three goalkeepers as I am not sure who should join Ben McKinless who I think is our best option.

N.B.Because of their versatility I have placed C McFaul and A McLaughlin in two different positions.The same tactic could be used with several other players particularly in the modern style of playing.

Given Sean Leo's commitment over the years, I think "hissy fit" is both inaccurate and unfair.

All the Coleraine ones walk away from Derry together. Try and explain that.

It is my understanding that the Senior County management asked them for full commitment to the county football and that they were expected NOT to play hurling for their Club.  Ciaran Mullan I think was picked for the Derry team towards the end of the NFL.  Those Coleraine lads (if treated properly) are of a decent Gaelic Games mindset.

I mentioned Sean Leo only and if think that his decision was a "hissy fit", then you simply show your own ignorance and undermine your posts.

Derry going nowhere under Barton, more chance of winning an Ulster medal with club, so they commit fully to club as even the McGoldricks' DNA excellence has a shelf life!  After the commitment and outstanding performances given by Sean Leo in a Derry shirt, I still feel your "hissy fit" post is unfair and inaccurate. He made a decision.

Possibly. Around seven, from 4/5 different clubs made decisions. By the way, are you now having a "hissy fit"?!
