I don't mind him but I think it's time to rethink for Donegal. They should be doing a lot better with the players they have at their disposal. I don't think there's an AI in them but best in Ulster should be very achievable.
I agree. They should be doing better. They have fewer passengers

Bonner is a buffer of the highest order. 18 months ago he was refusing to field in the McKenna Cup, it should be an honour to manage any game for your county and to try inspire anyone to wear the jersey, but he'd rather throw his toys out, much like the minor game a few moons ago when Tyrone bet Donegal and he let the accusations fly. Hope he stays in tbh, as mentioned Donegal are going backwards

Bitter much?  ;D ::)

Iíd say thatís probably the view of most inside the county.

Bonner did all right, but time to let someone else try their hand at it.

A lot probably depends on who would be interested.

Maybe Murphy can do a McEniff and try player-manager now that heís washed up. :P

He did very well in management with Letterkenny IT in Trench Cup. Definitely a future Donegal manager.

Last year worse than this year tbh. No shame in getting beat by Tyrone but should probably be running them a good bit closer than that.

With their  (soon to be washed up) talisman on the field all game I think Donegal would have prevailed. Tyrone only nailed the game in the last 10 minutes when they racked up 6 or so points in a row.   The scales were tipped when Murphy was dismissed.

 Would a return of Big Jim  to the manager's seat be realistic?

Probably the best thing for donegal but it will cost them. Jim's experience coaching soccer will go a long way in adding a professional atmosphere in the donegal camp. The personality of the donegal team at the minute is too reliant on mick murphy who as we seen on sunday is past it

Murphy is getting to the age were he should be thinking of playing as a bear on the square, the roaming days are maybe not quite over but they're coming to an end. He'd be some handful as a static FF.

Could be a good shout but I'd say he would have more of an impact coming off the bench. imagine versus tyrone he came on after the second water break the lift it would give donegal. You cant even make the argument that they need hi starting as he got sent off after a poor lapse of judgement in the first half. Donegal still looked like they had a chance. I would have young o'donnell in full forward with mcbrearty in centre forward to come off the shoulder. young gallen somehwere in the half forward line as well to take murphys spot with murphy coming off the bench after the second water break. if donegal are in the lead you could bet your live he will hold it out as his presence alone is enough to shift the tempo of the game. If  they require a few points to catch their opponents i cant think of many men in the country who can strike a ball like murphy

How did last Sunday show that? If he was on the field for the full 70 minutes he could have provided the leadership for Donegal to edge that match.

Think people are really overpaying murphy being sent off. There were more valuable players in Donegal whos sending off would have had a bigger impact on the game. Prior the the sending off he was kept out game almost entirely. He should have never started the game and should have been brought on as a sub in the final 20 mins. It was piss poor managment from bonners part.

You canít underestimate at senior level the other team losing a player, and an influential player (regardless of fitness) like Murphy.

Tyrone coulda won the game 15 on 15, watched the fouls, was a clumsy lazy tackle,  non deliberate. In a club league that wouldnít have raised an eyebrow

Like who?

Murphy leadership to that team is not in question and he occupies a number of defenders which creates the space for other forwards to cause damage.

For what it's worth I still think Tyrone would have won 15 v 15 as Donegal throughout was so loose defensively and that was the worst bit of management by Bonner to have them set up in that manner and never changed things.
