Baker resigned from Antrim post so would think he will be putting his name forward.

Just saw it on the Antrim site . . . I would imagine his name will figure strongly on the shortlist. Personally I don't think he's the man for the job.
How can you post this??? this is the problem with Derry to many knowalls. So before the county board give the derry job to the wrong man why don't you tell them who must get the job and when we will win the Sam. HANDIER

Having spoken at length to a Donegal man with the inside track on training and playing demands, I am convinced [as is he] that we do not have 25 players in Derry, aged 18-30, who would be prepared to give what is required to launch a serious All-Ireland assault in the near future. It's not just the conditioning, the diet, the fluid intake [or lack of] and the technical improvement needed, it's the willingness of each player to buy into a role that he must play in order to make the machine work. Can you think of who might still run headlong into trouble when he should be fielding and laying the ball off? Who would be hovering 60m from goal when under instruction to stay inside the 20m line? Who might continue to mark from behind when required to do so from from the front? Who would be drawn to try and win breaking ball when asked to stay wide? Who would still take a toe-tap and a bounce after being shown the folly of it? Who would still run into the 'D' if the manager wanted it cleared? We have too many wilful players and not enough willing ones! It may take 4 years to change this.

I would be content with that appointment, if indeed it is fact.

Contradicting reports in the Irish News today though.

I know we're heading into Championship weekend now, but seeing as all Division 1 fixtures are finished can anyone clarify what happens reagrding winners/relegation?

Position Team    Points
1 Magherafelt    28
2 Ballinderry      28
3 Slaughtneil     24
4 Loup               19
5 Bellaghy         16
6 Glenullin         16
7 Coleraine        16
8 Kilrea              16
9 Dungiven         13
10 Ballinascreen 13
11 Banagher      11
12 Craigbane     10
13 Steelstown    10
14 Lavey              9
15 Greenlough     6
16 Glen                5

Am i right in thinking B'Derry and S'Neil play-off for the right to face Magherafelt in the Division 1 final, the winners of which will be crowned league champions?

At the other end of the table will Lavey and Greenlough be in a playoff?  The winner of which is safe with the loser playing Glen in a relegation playoff.  The loser of that is automatically down while the winner will have to wait to play the loser of the Division 2 playoff, right?  It's hard enough getting my head round it without trying to put it into words!
