This seems to be the list of runners.

Useless that. McErlain will stay at minor or move to 20s. Deets is with Armagh I don't think he'll be getting the call and Paddy Tally?? Jesus they're scraping the barrel there we can't take another Tyrone man in!

Yeah the name is in the website.

But I would rather we never won another game than reappoint Rory Gallagher.

The GAA is about more than just a game, so how can someone with his reputation be appointed to such a position.

I think it is shameful the way some people on here are trying to excuse his conduct for the sake of trying to win some games of football.

Well said!
View from the lough!

If we reappoint Gallagher then Brolly is right.

The GAA in Derry has been commercialised and commodified beyond all recognition and we deserve to win fcuk all.

From the outside looking in I don't understand the clamour for Rory to come back. You've had a year of split in supporters last over Harte and some want to go back to that. Whether there's truth to the allegations or not surely O'Rourke is one who could unite the county and also has the credentials to push the county on.

What choice would other counties make in such a scenario?

What makes people think MOR wants the job in the first instance?

This perhaps suggests that neither MOR or RG are in the running?
Clubs nominating, we've been down that road before and I'm not sure it has been a successful process. Prob CB making sure the county is behind any appointment and an attempt to read the room.

There's no point in losing the run of ourselves until a decision has been made. There is so much happening that is right and extremely positive. There has to be a commercial angle to it to keep all the teams in action. That pr1ck sniping from the ditches offers nothing to Derry and brings nothing to our county, the opposite in fact.
There's an awful lot of people down at Owenbeg deserve serious credit for the position we're currently in.

Three minor titles in 5 years is not to be sniffed at jog. Takes some effort for many years from clubs, schools and counties to have that kind of record.

You just can't bing him back but I don't think you will. Who you will bring back I don't know.

You're right sniping in the ditches like that not a help. Says "was it something I said" and likely thinks he was Harte's undoing  ::)

Thinking with the head and not the Harte, I'd have stuck with the 2 for another year (unless O'Rourke had been approached and was keen), when you look at who's available out there, or not, it's maybe better the devlin you know. No idea who we'll get in, will be interesting to see, would need to be done pre championship to allow the new management team a good look at players for '25

If MOR ruled himself out & Gallagher wasn't an option - Who would you want to see?

As stated above, there's not much about at the minute.

A bit left field but any chance of Conor Laverty being tempted from Down? Has them playing some nice football - a style that seems would suit this Derry team.
Assuming he is into his last playing year(s) with Kilcoo, now has experience under his belt as a senior inter-county manager, and potentially will have silverware under his belt too soon enough.

Not Bradley or Mc Flynn.  Not sure what they're done. Definately not inter-county material. Is Bradley on the circuit?

Seems, when talking of inter-county managers nowadays, then it has to be a serious high quality manager.  Look at the two mentioned - RG and MOR.  These two are not your standard club managers.

Years ago, 5 or 6 names would be mentioned but these days, as a top 6 team, the bar is set very high.

I wonder has player power played a big hand in Harte's decision?

Panels seem to have a big input into who manages/who doesn't mange them these days.

If you actually looking to win a All-Ireland you need a big name capable of doing it. It long been established we no home bred talent that cut the mustard, as multi Derry managers have shown over the years.
