Those dancing on Mickey’s grave may be a little premature. It appears that the county board are inviting nominations for the post on a 3 year basis. I would suggest that nobody in the county will stand against Mickey and he’ll be ratified for 3 more years. If they wanted rid of him they could have ratified an extra year with a view to replacing him then.

That’s the way I read the situation as well. I can’t see anyone that will run against him and even if there is there is no guarantee they get the job. I would be fairly certain Harte will get a further 3 years. Surely if that’s the case the county board have to have some kind of succession plan in place.

Or it could be the case that he might regard being asked to re-apply for his current role an insult and might walk away?

Did they not do this dance a few years ago and the latest stint was meant to be his last? Surely they had a succession plan in place for now and this is the beginning of it??

Normally whoever’s involved is lined up from a while back I find it hard to believe a CB like Tyrone are just ‘inviting’ nominations for the position out of the blue.

Having said that I thought O’Rourke would have been next but obviously he’s not available now!!

Think you have the nail on the head here. I can't see anyone running against Harte, let alone running against him and being a Tyrone man with any kind of realistic chance.

I was told the backroom staff has changed already in preparation for next season and the team themselves resume training at the end of the month on their own.

Hope they get this sorted one way or another ASAP.

When will the deadline for nominations likely be?

Could anyone seriously, even those who back harte, be excited about him getting another 3 years?

think it would be quite depressing for MH to be there for another 3 years.

Whatever about the outcome - this should not be out in the public domain.

Whoever is leaking it needs roaded

A one year term in the absence of any standout candidate is the most obvious solution.

A full year with McShane and McKenna together should be what he is judged on.

I disagree, no harm in letting the public know what's going on behind the scenes within reason of course. Too many shady deals been done in garvaghy in the past. Time for transparency.

what if either got injured again and missed next year? Do we have to give harte another year then so he can have both available?

this would literally be the dream outcome. Harte gone from Tyrone, errigal stuck with harte for next 10 years!

Errigal were dreadful in the Championship. He was going, just a matter if walked or pushed. They are still fuming up there at the Dungannon loss.

I'm not excited about any of the names being suggested at the minute and that includes Jimmy McGuinness.
That was never a square ball!!
