considering that for four years between 2012 -2015 inclusive the mc kenna cup is the only trophy we lifted i think its safe to say its whats been keeping mickey in the job. im sure some day people will realise its what happens at the business end of the championship that really matters.
Mickey will be fielding his strongest team from now on. Mark Bradley and the other college players will be in the squad sunday.Results are what matters now to siience his detractors and to extend his tenure.And therein lies the issue, MH goes out to win mckenna cup to extend his tenure!! Unbelieveable. Have we set our standards that low?
Do you guys genuinely believe that the McKenna Cup has kept Mickey in his job? Seriously, Do you really think that's how these things work? Or do you think it may have been the two all Ireland semi final appearances during that time in 2013 and 2015 following the promotion to div 1 in 2012 and the appearance in a div 1 league final in 2013? That's not bad progress in a four year period. During that era do you think we had better players than Dublin, Donegal and Kerry? Did we seriously underperform to warrant a change of manager or, on reflection, was there just a few better teams than us?
