Rochford given a 2 year extension to his deal tonight - until 2020. Backroom team not confirmed yet though. Hopefully no major changes there either.
+1 Good!
The least amount of change, the better. Obviously he see potential there and I couldn't see him staying if he felt there would be mass resignations from the panel. Mayo hasn't gone away, you know. ;D

Haha Lar. Check the date.

Presumably the fact remains that he has at least another year left to run on his contract though. I'd prefer to see him stay on unless we have a better replacement

Contract? There's no such thing. It's no more than a gentleman's agreement which either party can break without penalty.

Sorry, incorrect word on my part but he still has another year to run so presumably he wants to stay on and I'd be surprised if the CB ditch him

If Rochford goes itíll be his choice. Co Board donít want to go through the hassle of another managerial appointment with no obvious candidates in the county for the job. IF he stays and IF the majority of the players stay on, Rochford will be working with something next year that he hasnít had the last three years. A rested squad.

Surely its the O'Ses and their mates who decide on whether any one stays as Mayo team manager with the county board just rubber stamping their decisions,

   I am sure it is. Isn't that what happens in all counties?

It didn't help when he came out with the likes of this:

Quote
A DESPONDENT PETE McGrath stopped just short of saying he regretted taking on the Louth job in the wake of their 11-point defeat to Carlow on Sunday.

In his first year in charge, McGrath watched his team lose all seven of their Division 2 games this year before they were dumped out of the Leinster SFC by a buoyant Carlow outfit in Portlaoise.

ďWhen you have lost a match like that, you feel not only disappointed but devastated,Ē McGrath said after the game.

ďYou donít regret it (taking the job), but you say, ĎI have maybe made better decisions in my life.í

ďI wasnít sure what Louth football was like. I found out early on with the unavailability of players and a couple of injuries that it was going to be a struggle but I felt the players were up to it and management was up to it.Ē

It is no surprise Fermanagh have improved this year. But to be fair to him he had Louth very fit in the first week of January.

Fermanagh haven't improved that much. They got to an Ulster final playing dogged defensive football, and were outclassed in the Ulster final. They got promoted in the League, but they were Promoted under McGrath too, and made an All Ireland Quarter final.

Gallagher not even starting Tomas Corrigan. He is their top forward.
