Shocked that Derry would let a Tyrone man in to manage them. Kind of shocked by the way Harte dumped Louth too.

Based in his last 5 years at Tyrone, Mickey is not the man to give Derry the attacking freedom and confidence to climb the last hurdle or two.

They're more likely to implode than explode from here I reckon.

Derry currently are a better team than thr last 5 years of teams Harte managed at Tyrone. Remains to seen how he does with Derry as All-Ireland semi final could already be their ceiling regardless of manager.

Doubt the county he's from came into the Derry county board thinking when he's a manager with a CV filled with All Irelands won.   How more could he have brought Louth? took them on in Div 4 and left them in Div 2 which included a 3rd place finish this year.  He's 71 now and this is last chance for another big gig.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

There's a wee touch of revisionism in what you're saying.

Tyrone won Ulster in 16 and 17 and got to the AI final in 18.

But my take on those last few years is that Tyrone looked shackled by a manager fully immersed in mistake free, safety first football.

I really don't think that's what Derry needs now.

Sure they had Brian McIver.

Ah, you'd have to be disappointed with getting Harte.

You look at all these Managers who have success, drift into mediocrity, get sacked (or resign) and then come back.
Time, tactics and energy are not the same.

Tyrone in Hartes final years were unbelievably boring and negative. That group would never had won an AI if he was at the helm in 2021. In the same vein the 03, 05, 08 All Irelands would not have been won without Harte. Although, more AI titles could have been won had he given less attention to his obsession of the McKenna Cup.

They not make a final in them last 5yrs.

Mickey Graham gone to Leitrim as Assistant Manager to Andy Moran. Also bizarre

Harte to Derry. As the religious zealot he is he will be familiar with the character Judas in the Bible. Who would've thought he would become one.
He always was banging on about tradition in the GAA. Where's his when it comes to community, volunteerism. He has thrashed what was left of his legacy in Tyrone.

Derry need to ask themselves how will they cope with the football being even more boring and negative than under RG?
How will Derry players take to being forced to go to Mass? 

His last years in Tyrone showed that football had evolved and he hadn't.

He's a persona non grata.

Hat tip to Louth GAA who absolutely lit Harte on fire with their statement.

At Christmas 1992 Eamonn Coleman knew that he had the players Derry needed to win the All Ireland even if nobody else did.

The team was a collection of leaders and winners. People from other counties still remember them. Downey (Henry) Tohill, Scullion, Brolly, McGurk, Gormley.

It's not clear that  the problem this year was the manager

I did not think he would ever manage another team in ulster as he would be more likely to play against tyrone.

A leader in that team, really?
McKeever and McGilligan were but not their clubmate Brolly, decent but probably not a leader.

I'd suspect like Rochford in the other place Micky will be the real manager.
