GAA Discussion / Re: Jimmy McGuinness

If he hits in the USA - the financial gain long term will be enormous and it wouldn't be completely mad (if successful) to see an Irishman manage the USA National Soccer team, if he made a name for himself in the MLS2 or whatever this outfit league is called, it's not beyond realm of possibility he'll be at the MLS sooner than many think.

Jimmy has the head screwed on, Derry City/Dundalk....all these teams will always be there. He makes it in the USA he's set for life.

Steady on there

Do you know who this is? He's an Irishman who has been a USL coach for 4 years now - who has won the USL Championship for the last 2 years.




Nobody has a clue who he is - that's the point.

This is the United States - its not essential that you actually are the best at what you do as long as you have some sort of personality / PR / selling point.

it isn't - USL players are probably making $2,000 to $3,000/month during the season

Thanks Gabe.
So players earn that.

Why are people posting it is very lucrative what a manger earns??

Back to the Pochetino links this morning.

Do you all think he would go to United at this stage? Assuming Spurs qualify for UCL this season and the backdrop of the new stadium next season.

Fair play to Jimmy, he's got his head screwed on where the cash is!

In all seriousness - always been a massive fan of McGuinness  - coming from a Tyrone man. Bringing Donegal to that All Ireland glory (probably should have been 2 to be honest) was unthinkable when he first took the job. Not only that he managed to completely dominate Tyrone, who at the time were the one's swinging the hammer in that particular rivalry.

Look around your own county at the clubs, he essentially took a Junior Club to Senior Champions. Donegal were horrid - he managed to get everyone to buy into what he demanded, eeked absolutely everything he could and got them over the line. Of course these guys were already good players - but they were a shambles for large parts prior as they've mostly acknowledged.

His book was a bit....petty. It wasn't for me, but I mean most sporting books are self serving I suppose.

Gaelic Football needs more people like McGuinness - people will jump on the style of play but I mean they did what they had, with what they had.

It's only now with the dominance of Dublin do people surely realise what he brought to the table. If every county could unearth a gem like that with a clear vision and style of play wouldn't that be better with some of the eejits in charge now pulling men behind the ball for the sake of it without actually knowing what to do when they get it.

"I could not comprehend how big the Toulon pack was when they won their first Heineken Cup in 2013 in Dublin. Bakkies Botha, Danie Roussow, Carl Haymen and Andrew Sheridan were in the sponsors' room standing around like Redwoods unaware of their sheer physical size while people gawped in slack-jawed amazement.
The biggest and most powerful mercenaries that money could buy. Power and size win cups evidently The human race is constantly evolving but international forwards are constantly coming in ahead of the average"

But obviously gaelic football is far worse

Plus big Bastareaud who wasn't far off those guys even back then as a young(ish) centre.

I wonder is it the same at high level inter county football/hurling in August/September when games are coming thick and fast?

O'Driscoll put in his book he used to take Ibuprofen prior to games to start the recovery process as soon as possible. This story doesn't surprise me at all.

I'd say it's not as rampant in the GAA, for all intents and purposes they aren't in the same league contact wise.

3rd video doing the rounds now!
I wouldn’t have much time for Brolly,to say the least but the reaction to these videos are way OTT in my opinion.

A lot of the 'outrage' I'd say is because of his media personality. People need to realise that Brolly plays a role on screen.

Having met the man in person on a number of occasions, it's something clearly obvious and that he freely admits.

He wanted to put his massive tool in her box, is all.

FFS have i missed the real video!? Joe will get a bit of "banter" over it and it'll be a bit of a laugh. That's about it.

On a side note, there are absolute ballbags everywhere, videoing sh*te like that.

Have to agree - not too keen on the rise of these clips/opportunities to discredit and disgrace people. Some people are obviously deserving of things like that for much more serious offences - not this though, nothing to it.

Ah the video is nothing lads - think we've all seen the same 13 second one.

The only thing is, Joe wouldn't have a great deal of men lining up to defend him I'd say. He'll take a bit of flak but the same man will 'brush' it off.

I'm here all week.

M Bradley gone for the year apparently

If confirmed that's a massive blow for Tyrone.
Why would he be missing for the year, McGeary was in a similar position doing a PGCE in England last year and played in the majority of Tyrone games.

Suppose Bradley has played a lot more football than McGeary over the past few years. Might do him no harm to take a year out of the intercounty scene to refresh body and mind. He's picked up a few high profile head hits over the past few months too. Everyman has their own choice to make, wonderful player though - he'll be sorely missed.

I don't know how you can 'win' an award for being top scorer in division one, then not find yourself in the best 15. Hardly makes sense.
