Very good appointment there if the players buy into it.

Itís his job to get the players to buy into it, if they donít itís a bad appointment and he will have failed.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

These players have achieved more in the last ten years than OíRourke has so you could as easily be referring to them dragging him over the line.

Itís far from a done deal so your man may not even be good enough to make the first hurdle..

Mike McGurn I said would be a very good appointment. A native of Enniskillen, County Fermanagh.

Did Fermanagh get removed from Ulster when I wasnít watching?

A strange choice for the Rossies! As a Sligo man I would be pleasantly surprised as I thought they had more buying power. O'Rourke was with Kildare, Down, Armagh, Louth and Queen's winning a grand total of nothing. A modern day GAA journeyman.

Who's in his backroom team?

He won the Sigerson cup with Queens and was on the Kildare management that reached the All Ireland semi final and very close to winning it. If the rossies manage that they will be more than happy I'd say.

Mike McGurn the S&C coach. A good few Roscommon  players need good conditioning.

Very good appointment there if the players buy into it.

Plenty in the county less than happy with the appointment. Itís no surprise to see you Stanning for an Armagh man, though.

The same tÓts in the county who complained about what McStayís cost was better keep their knives sharpened because OíRourke and his buddies wonít be coming in cheapily. I can think of plenty of better ways to spend that amount of money.

If he gets the job I wish him the best but he has a hard task ahead of him given his track record in Louth and the players that wonít be available next year.


Not the first time Iíve heard the Louth thing. His two years there included a fourth placed finish in Division Two, a 10-point Leinster win over Laois, coming within a point of a Leinster semi-final, a five-point Leinster win over Westmeath and a qualifier win. Theyíd kill for that now.

We wouldnít.

He managed Queens to a Sigerson? Don't think so. Maybe part of a backroom team but he certainly was not manager. The only job he has had as actual front man manager to the best of my knowledge was Louth and based on memory it was a disaster.

Assistant manager with Queens and they haven't got close to winning the Sigerson cup since that win. Look at where Louth are now after a number of managers, I think that says more about Louth than O'Rourke.

A poor workman blames his tools..

Stephen Poacher involved with Carlow so I would imagine itís to give him time to let them know.

Do they not have electrification in Carlow yet

Will the Rossies be happy with O'Rourke?

No

He might have a good backroom team if rumours are to be beehives at least.

As A Rossie syf doesn't speak for us all.

Backroom tea  will be deciding factor.  It let the last big name front man down....

O'Rourke probably better than anyone else who was interested but it sums up how low the external opinion of Ross football despite being in D1 and super 8s that this is as good as we get,

Nigel Dineen was the outstanding local candidates has question marks also

I speak for everyone

Including you

Trust me whoever u are, you don't speak for me and your knowledge of all football  including Roscommon is similar to a turd  dropped last week

If Iím a turd youíre the hollowed out carcass of an old turd

I only speak the truth

Who's not available next year?

Not going to name any names but thereís about half a dozen of the panel who will be unavailable for next season because theyíre travelling in the summer or for other non-football reasons. Some may be tempted to stick around to stay up in the league before they go so itís counterproductive to say more.

In other words you wish him the best as you sharpen the knife.

I donít do knife sharpening but I know how the pea-brained GAA supporters in every county operate.

Many county teams about ulster would not have McGurn anywhere near the place. He has not got a clue and got sacked from Armagh and a few club teams about here. Bad move

I believe neither the glowing praise nor this.

The general consensus is it's corofins to lose with clan maybe the nearest to them , I'll stick my neck out here and predict tubber to give it a right good rattle .

I thought Corofin might get caught today as Annaghdown are a good side with a sprinkling of intercounty players. Corofin played most of the 2nd half with only 14 men and were against the wind but actually ended up extending their lead. It's not so much the big name players with Corofin that makes them so good rather than the general quality of even their weakest players.

I actually hope they get knocked out at some point as a few of their young lads like Kieran Molloy and Dylan Wall (who was superb today) deserve game time with Galway during next year's league.

Dylan Wall and Kieran Fitzgerald were fantastic today, awful pity DaithŪ Burke is sticking with the hurling, he made a big impact when he came on. Wouldn't have picked Comer, Duggan, Frankie Burke out as county players today, Annaghdown were disappointing.

How did young Gary Cox get on for Salthill

Didn't start but came on for Evan Murphy when he got injured, didn't do much from what I could see and didn't score.

Gary must be 38 at this stage and still playing senior club football
