County board have 6-8 weeks before they need to panic about appointing a manager. The hubris about having no-one lined up is horseshit, Mayo have about 5 months to their next match of any meaning. No point rushing in and appointing a bollix just to say you’ve got someone.

Longer than that i can imagine as it was November 30th when Rochford was appointed and he didn't put his management team together until the first few weeks of December. Which all makes the deadline put on Rochford last week very odd.

They wanted him gone.It was a stitch up.Why they wanted him gone with no one lined up is anyones guess
That's not entirely accurate. Knowing how it unfolded.

No problem with him going in my opinion, last year was dismal and the whole structure needed to change.

But why not do it immediately after the Kildare match ? It would of given the county board more time to find a successor and the new man to time to find his feet ?

Kevin mcstay is the latest most significant mover in the pp market , 12/1 into odds of Now 6/1. Jack o connor enters the market today at odds of 8/1. It's comical stuff tbh
Walk-in down mchale rd , sun out, summers day , game day . That’s all .

There’s a bizarre conflict in the Mayo opinion here that seems to be along the lines of “we didn’t rate Rochford at all but we didn’t want rid of him either”.

People's opinions differ, hardly a shock.

What would the Tyrone opinion of Mickey Harte have been this time last year?

I don't really understand. What is it he wants to hear from them. He resigned.

Yeah, bosses not contacting an employee who steps down at all is totally normal.

 Did he not contact his employer to say he was quitting?

I don't think that he wants anything, he was asked a question and he answered it.

He didnt have to go on the news to say nothing.

Jack O Connor would be a great move for Mayo! Top manager! Suprised he not in the running for the Kerry job!

The Ultras have started turning on the man I see. Omertà, blah, blah. Same guff as when the last duo came out with their side of the story.

Rochford was properly fûcked over. He has every right to point that out to anyone he wants to. He owes you or any of the Mayo supporters nothing at this stage.

Would be a huge addition to mayo football but hopefully he will take Kerry role. Might be too soon for Peter Keane.

Talking through your arse as usual. I know he was fucked over - I am in no way defending the methods of the CB.
But Rochford said nothing new in that interview. It doesn't aid his cause (if he has one) or even shed more light on what actually happened. All it achieved is keeping the "Mayo story" in the headlines.
