The new Derry manager should be an experienced,innovative individual with a good track record in creating a balanced playing system which takes account of both defensive and attacking strategies.It is also essential that he has top class man-management skills The following four issues must also be addressed.

(1)Any aspiring Derry Senior football manager would want to be assured that all of the best players in the county would always be at his disposal from the beginning of the year until Derry exit next year's All Ireland Senior football championship.

(2)All the relevant GAA stakeholders ie  County Board,Players and Clubs would have to meet at the beginning of the year to agree a common united strategy for the mutual benefit  of both County and club football.

(3)All the necessary financial and modern support systems would have to be in place for all concerned.

(4) The Manager  ideally would be an outsider with his number Two being a very strong, capable and respected Derry man.

Over  to the selection panel.

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?

It has to be an outside manager as i dont seen anybody within the county capable of making a fist of it! Best performance in 10yrs: dont think so: we scored 1 point in the last 38mins; teams not fit compared to division one  level team which we are only out of 3yrs!

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.

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?

I would say Paul McIVor has a brave chance of landing the job.

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.

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!!
