How is it self serving he only kicked with Emo so he could play County football as soon as that was over he was gone.  He would of played with any county that would of taken him,  he no doubt had ability but should have never been considered for Laois.  He serves no purpose for Laois bar he was slightly better than our own.  I have no truck with him,  but our managers should be from within always.

So who would you think in laois has a chance??

Malachy(Fine by me), Clancy, Higgins, Eddie K, Kearns, Cotter,  Mcmahon, Donnacha, BOL, Eddie Kelly, Mark Rooney, Joe Higgins, Chris Conway, Noel Garvan loads  more

Every one of them would improve from being Laois manager and go back to their clubs in Laois improved for the experience .

Of course some of them are not up to it,  but if we promote from within and there is a clear pathway we will have more buy in.

Literally none of them could be worse than TOF or Peter Creedon

And you know what everyone of them care about Laois Football numero uno Kerry is not the first result the look to

Back them financially the same as an outsider, help them and improve them.

If there were 2 equally qualified candidates - one from Laois and one from outside Laois - of course you’d have to give it to the Laoisman. There are clear advantages to having a local man in charge and that would certainly be ideal. But should we go for a less qualified candidate just because he’s from Laois? I hope not.

The Laois job shouldn't be an internship for inexperienced managers. They'll have to have done something to show they are capable of progressing things.

Well qualified isn’t soldiering for Laois or being from Laois.

I would say that qualified is either having a track record of achievement at club or county level or having sufficiently convincing ideas about how you would do the job.

It’s perfectly reasonable to think such people exist in Laois.

Brian Cody’s prior experience in Kilkenny was managing The Village to a Senior Final.

Think outside the box gentlemen.

I agree and I thought that almost went without saying. Some of the names mentioned are bizarre to say the least. Unfortunately there is no outstanding coach in Laois. If there was, he would have made his mark easily enough. Chris Conway at least was successful in Tipperary and he's the only one internally who interests me. I haven't seen anything in Laois that suggests that we have the know how to get results against other counties. Often times, the team is a lot better than the coach and as a result, they get so far and peter out. Sugrue worked with a successful team and had that know how. Eddie Brennan played in successful teams. Who have we got with that sort of pedigree?

Would agree that if you confine yourself to Laois only Chris Conway or Clancy suggest possibility

I personally wouldn't contemplate a Laois based coach except Sugrue Giovanni. I'd be looking towards Dublin because they have the know how and it's near. Someone like Bryan Cullen maybe although he's probably on mega bucks

If Sugrue is gone for certain I'd like to see Billy Sheehan or Chris Conway in there.
