Surprised Banty walked to be honest, but I'm not displeased at that
Banty hit the wall this year. He couldn't bring Monaghan any further.
It is the same thing in Mayo. New thinking required.
Horan was brought back because he did a decent job the first time. Banty was brought back because....?

So Antrim and Monaghan are definites for a new manager. Probables are Down and Donegal but still no word from either county. Tyrone is the other one where it wouldn't really surprise me if they step down.

I'll have a puff of whatever you're smoking there, please.  :P

Add Donegal to that, but no word of anything yet.

I heard Eamonn McGee talking recently about the pool of candidates these days being severely reduced because of the insane demands of the job.

He said he himself was approached to be a selector or something and his wife said no f**king way as their kids are still young and she needs him about.

I watched Tyrone games this year, there appeared to be very little sideline communication in the Tyrone camp. I got the feeling all was not well between the two managers.
But that is only my observation,  nothing more.

Banty wrote a classy farewell

"The Monaghan players are a very special bunch of men who have been fantastic ambassadors for the people of Monaghan in the past and during my term as manager. I have no doubt that they will continue to represent this great county with pride and distinction into the future.
"Managing Monaghan has been one of the great privileges and honours of my life"

Fair enough.
It was just an observation  of my own.
And have heard nothing at all to reinforces.

Leitrim county board confirmed tonight that Andy Moran will stay on as their senior manager for another two years.

Whatever else they do, Dooher and Logan will have been a success. However they are both busy men with careers away from GAA and this is bound to impact on their ability to give the job the time that is required at that level. Combine that with the player drop outs and indiscipline of this season and nobody could really blame them for walking away.

As far as Banty is concerned it wouldn't surprise me if he got back on the merry go round somewhere else. Perhaps Mayo or Donegal if it became available.

Pure idle speculation, nothing more than that: they both knew the demands of team management before taking those reins; the seven squad "defectors"  ;) was down to those individuals, and nothing much management could have done; with the All-Ireland winning U20s coming on stream over the next while they'll not be short of panel options.

All in all, I'd say there's zero chance of them quitting in the foreseeable.

I'd say lads get a bit of burn out if they're going for 2 or 3 years flat out. Maybe the shorter season will help that now and re-calibrate things.

It is a full time job and very time consuming. Surely they couldn't do their main job properly but they seem to get by. Maybe a teacher or businessman could do it but it must be hard. They have a team to manage and a staff of up to 25 to manage off the park. A lot happening.

Mayo are waiting until Monday to put in place a commitee of some sort to replace Horan. The new appointment ultimately will have to be ratified by club delegates.

Any thoughts on who will take on the Meath job next year?

I think we need to look outside the county and get someone who is in tune with current training and S&C standards.

Malachy O’Rourke might be a good option. Eamon Fitzmaurice has an All Ireland to his name as a coach but not sure if he’s up to the task that Meath would present.

Perhaps picking a manager in a top club in Dublin like St Vincent’s or Kilmacud might be the most realistic option but that’s essentially what Andy McEntee was.

I've a suggestion for Meath. Kevin Walsh. He's a regular guest on the Examiner podcast and from listening to that I think he'd be quite interested in a reviving-a-sleeping-giant project.
