The real question when it comes to those wanting to get rid of McGeeney is, who is the stand out candidate that really wants the job and is willing to step in?

McGeeney made the right step in bringing in Jim McCorry and giving him a say in matters on the field.

I'd agree that McCorry has improved things from a coaching and tactical perspective. McGeeney himself will have a team mentally and physically prepared to the nth degree.

To answer your first question I really don't see anybody obvious who fits both criteria. Tony McEntee is the most obvious one who has been mooted before but nobody knows if he would even be interested in the job. His record at club level is serioously impressive although he is unproven in management at county level other than as part of the Mayo backroom team where nobody really knows how influential he was.

So Tyrone demolish a Cavan team that ran Armagh out the door.  If Armagh did manage to fluke their way into super 8s this year they would've ended up on -20 or more v a big team. Mayo result was a blessing in disguise.

Tis a funny old game. Sure we left it behind us in Castlebar and Mayo made fools of Galway this week. Cavan just didnít turn up against Tyrone, although in fairness Armagh still another year away from being super 8 standard.

100% this. You're dealing with a particularly determined WUM who posts in various guises. Definitely one to ignore.

Mayo will make anybody feel good. You are right. Mayo played 2X v Galway in Limerick and gave a poorish enough Galway just enough to have regrets as well - when they shouldnt really really have any. Enough comfort maybe for Kevin Walsh to hang in there. I dont know Armagh enough to suggest anything about the future but would love to see Walsh replaced in Galway - speaking as a Mayo man.
