I presume our Offaly brethren have taken in Maughan's interview on OTB ?
I'm not an Offaly brethren but from listening to a bit of it he thinks county football hasn't changed much since he last managed 10 years ago and has no plans to go defensive as he wants supporters going to the games to enjoy it.

He's bringing sexy back.

Stephen Wallace said something about sexy too. We just didn't realise he meant S&M.

I think it's terrible bad form of the Offaly County Board to punish the lads who fell out with Wallace by appointing Maughan and letting him bring along Tommy "Tom" Carr.

The only thing I can think of is that the County Board is hoping that every footballer in the county refuses to play and they can spend all their money on the hurlers.

Jack Cooney looks set to take charge of the Westmeath footballers, will become the county's first native manager in 26 years.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Yeah he would have been a poor appointment.

Cooney deserves a crack at it. Was a selector under Paidi, has done well at a few different clubs, and got good experience with Donegal last couple of years. Some within the county are against him as his Kinnegad team play ultra defensive football. But he made them competitive (semi final last year) even though they don't have a whole lot of quality in their team. Horses for courses.
Clubs still have to ratify him, but I expect they will.

Denis Connerton a strong possibility for the Sligo job now.

Would be a much better appointment than what was rumoured but heís also hardly someone who is going to set a fire in Sligo hearts. Very interesting that Leitrim can get Terry Hyland but Sligo are chasing after what are lesser candidates on paper.

He was coach of Castleknock the year they made the Dublin final and was coach with Longford this year. He worked with Donie Buckley a bit too.

Iím not crying a river that he isnít our coach like you are but I said he shouldnít be our first choice, not that he shouldnít be a choice. Nice failed attempt to blacken someone's name, though.

I never mentioned Kevin Stritch in any guise before Syferus......

This isn't the time to find a talented lad with little intercounty experience .....we need someone who has coached teams to do exactly what we need to do.....


Think the above is the  gushing praise you gave him.

Demands on IC players far too high with no team outside Dublin having a realistic chance at glory..

Iíd love a psychologist to examine your mind and see how you manage to convince yourself everything good about Roscommon has nothing to do with Kevin McStay while everything negative is clearly his fault. Weíve had players dropping out every year under every manager for many, many years now. So has almost every other county. Itís not the man at the top thatís the issue.
