In what way?

Have you any suggestions as to who would fit the bill?

Poacher not a bad shout.
Would Wee Pete steady the ship along with poacher?
Well Walsh was with Mayobridge for 4/5 years never competed in a final as far as I know even in those 5 years.
Think itís time for Pete to come back

Lol at Wee Pete. Just how many teams did she have to fail with before he can be crossed off the list?

John mcentee (he was interested before only the co board went for the cheap option) and let him bring his own backroom team.

He's the man to be the next down manager. Or let the county board take the bullshit backward approach and give it a 91/94 player. What's big witnall at these days?

We need to keep this in Down and have no Orchard men in our county. There are loads of good men if you look, would wee James take another shot at it.

So yous all reckon the managerial dream team of Burns, Murray, Adams and whoever else is involved will be relieved of their duties, wudnt bet on it!! Oh sure throw Paul Mc Ivorís name in there too, swipe Kilcooís manager again and chase him after a year!!

A strange post.

All County men in action tomorrow night. What does that say if anything?

Burns had no option other than to let them play tomorrow night. he would have lost more men from the panel had he starred the game. even for him to release some players and not others would have seen those released walking away at this stage. its a gamble in terms of possible injuries but nothing to lose at this stage.

Thought process would also be to allow them to get game time in with the clubs and in the hope that the players regained some confidence and composue before the Cavan game.

Otherwise they be facing into it with their last game the hiding last week and the mental scars that will surely have gone with it.

Wouldn't talk much on this forum but going by my experience Cathal Murray is one of the best about -  However the same cant be said for Adams and Burns out of there depth at this level

Starred games are a load of balls anyway.

Better the players are match sharp rather than wrapped in cotton wool.

Its easy to say that when youíve been beaten and little hope of progressing.

If there was an Ulster Final or semi final to prepare for even itíd be a different story.

Eamonn should go once this campaign is over, brought nothing to the table, confirmed club managerial success - zero
Conor Deegan - similar success as Eamonn, how he lost that match against Derry is so puzzling,I seen many bad managerial decisions in my lifetime but his is in the top three.
Might as well go for a treble, Sean og , you have done your best , you have run this county into the ground, financially,reputation and relations within and outside the county, do the honourable thing and step aside.
Who replaces Eamonn and Conor, my suggestion is Paddy Tally , he knows the players and Down football so would be a perfect choice.

Funny results in the SFL
CPN are flying at present
A few of the so called bigger teams just cruising through to August doing enough to keep them in the top half. If anyone can stop the Magpies who will it be?
Personally I think the Point will fade and are mentally weak. Clonduff ,ourselves and the blueshirts are best equipped to challenge but would need everyone available.
Looking forward to the championship starting as league football is like training games these days, everyone is afraid to show their hand.
Great football from Harps last night, getting beat by 8 and still sit with two sweepers 😴😴😴
