Don't want to upset Itcheen  ...
But Evans wouldn't go from April 2016, reinforced March 2017 and August 2017 to July 2018 without doing something about defending.
Not to mention S&C.
No manager would.
Evans wouldn't drop his 2 goalscorers for a replay and give a lad his first ever game in an AI QF replay
Our man did the latter again this year but  there might be some leeway as it was a dead rubber.
Then we have 9 or 10 different CHBs in this year's NFL and Championship.
Not saying Johneen is the greatest manager in the Country or anything but our man has to up his game considerably to reach JE level.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

apologies itchy.

no connacht finals and lost to sligo and fermanagh in his last year that's some progress he was building something special alright. maybe if he got a team to a QF we'd know what the team would have conceded since that's your barometer but we didn't. losing by 1 or losing by 20 is still losing.

I think we'll leave it there rossfan.

Might as well :-\.
We'll see how it goes next year.
Meanwhile let's leave this thread to managers in general.

A scatter of has-beens and never-will-bes applied for Longford job.

Former player Pauric (Podgie) Davis mentioned in dispatches but it would seem he is not keen for the marriage.

Paddy Tally confirmed as new Down manager

Statement on his appointment

Quote
Paddy Tally appointed as new Down Senior Football Manager

Down GAA County Board have ratified Paddy Tally as the new manager of their Senior Football Team. The Galbally man will take over the reins from Eamonn Burns who stepped down from the position after the county's championship campaign.

Tally returns to the management set up in the Mourne County, having previously served with both Ross Carr and James McCartan, including during the run to the All Ireland Final in 2010.

His most recent assignment was with the Galway Senior Football management during the 2018 league and championship campaign. He also notably led the St Mary's College team to their exceptional Sigerson Cup success in 2017.

Paddy was the trainer with the Tyrone side that won the Ulster and All Ireland breakthrough victory in 2003, and has since developed a reputation as one of the GAA's most innovative coaches.

Paddy Tally's management team will include Benny Coulter, Gavin McGilly and Stephen Beattie.

Benny Coulter is one of Down's most celebrated footballers. He won an All Ireland Minor title in 1999, an Allstar in 2010 and a number of county titles with Mayobridge.

Gavin McGilly was joint manager of the Moy side that won this year's All Ireland Intermediate Club title. He and Stephen Beattie have worked with Paddy Tally at St Mary's and are both former coaches with the Ulster Council.

Down GAA Chairman Sean Rooney welcomed the appointment, stating that "we wish Paddy and his team well, we promise them our full support and we hope that everyone can now work together to herald a new awakening for Down Football".

"Paddy's reputation and record as a coach and manager were important factors in our choice and we are delighted that he is now on board"

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

So much for the ‘Down way’ even though nobody ever knew what that actually was.

Tally is a proven top class coach but can he prove himself as an inter county manager where he will have to delegate a lot of jobs. They lost their nerve with an outside man after McCorry suffered an embarrassing defeat in Wexford after he had got them promoted to division one so the minimum expected of Tally will be promotion to division 2.

Couldn't disagree more. Talented county at low ebb but with alot of talented players in a strong club scene. A lack of tactical nous has cost them big time since wee James left, players left because the manager couldn't deliver and results were poor.

Promotion from div 3 and a big name scalp in championship or a good qualifier run and it'll be a good year. Eminently doable.

Despite some very OTT criticism from a few places, I think Tally will be a loss to the Galway football setup overall, best of luck to him as manager with Down.
Has Kevin Walsh himself confirmed he is going to stay on as Galway manager though?
