Malachy O'Rourke and Johnny McBride would be an ideal combination.The only problem is that he is still the current Monaghan manager and may not be interested even if he were to step down from his present position.

However  the County Board have to think  "big"  and go for a strong  and  capable personality who would immediately earn the respect of all players and officials. No effort should be spared in pursuit of ensuring that Derry football have the best players on the field and the best Management team off it.

Minor Manager Damian McErlain and all of our underage development coaches deserve to see that all of the players that they have developed reach their full potential as Senior inter county men.

Excuse my ignorance but what has Johnny McBride done managementwise?
Or is it just his knowledge of the club scene in Derry that you feel he would add to the equation?
last season he managed the loup to a county final, that was a great achievement.

since 1998 Derry haven't went outside the county to appoint a manager,Mullins wouldn't have known the club scene that well but was the last manager to win an Ulster title,o rourke had a spell in the loup which gives him some insight to the politics and understanding of the club culture in Derry all be it a few years ago hardly lazy analysis.

Did Mullins not have a good few players from the 93 team to help him to that Ulster title?

Mullins was teaching in Donegal at the the time, so he might have had some knowledge of Club football in Derry.
Mullins would have had the Downeys, Tohill, Brolly, McKeever, Coleman, Heaney, Burns.. I'm sure Gormley was still on the panel as well.

all the names mentioned were there, so its not an accident they won another Ulster with the quality there, a much easier job for an outside man then. Now would be much tougher as building from a low base. However I think it would be a good time for the next man, if its a good appointment, starting in division three you can only go up. If the players buy in they would return to division two quickly.
cccc is a true supporter lol

You heard here first. The Cassidy brothers have already got the job

Going by Cassidy Jr's results with Bellaghy so far this year they will happily release him to go to Derry.

Maybe Rafferty wasn't such a bad manager after all!!

Paul mcivor be a great appointment - take us even lower and pave the way for mcerlean to come in after him and get us to senior finals, just like he tidied up the minors and made a success of supposedly lesser talented groups. Need to be careful his dad don't go and help some other county against us tho🤔😡

Johnny would know the club scene well and is a good football man. But this doesn't qualify him to be part of an inter county set up. Mickey Boyle got Screen to a county final a few years ago and is now managing an Derry Intermediate Club team.

If O'Rouke is approached and interested, he will want Porter with him.

But that dross that Stallion cried about under Mc Ivor senior would be back in vogue again, as that is how Monaghan play, except they have one of the top scoring forwards in the game and we don't.

It's very funny how the team that win us an all Ireland could be tge fault of today's failing. That was was all up their own arses and and always fighting with the top men in the county board and didn't they even go on strike and not play a league game.

That was the start of the 94/95 campaign, with Moran in charge, after the county board shafted Coleman.  Only a few of them went on strike, not the entire '93 panel.
