Not really sure , it's more the qualities of the guy coming intgat matters , there's savage work to be done , he will have to have coaching skills , man management skills , serious motivation skills as lads heads are on the ground at this stage , it's a massive task no name jumps out to me at the moment, certainly today is a good day in Ger leaving

Sheedy would be fantastic but I'm not sure if he would go for it. Not a lot of high profile managers around but it's one the county board have to get right.

I as much as anyway one felt Cunningham man management was poor but I don't feel he intentionally set out to create the situation he did, his time in charge wasn't successful but one big thing he did was bring in a lot of the underage talent from the minor teams of the last few years, guys that will be there for ten years now challenging for places.
For me it's time for a dub to take charge.
If we want to progress it needs to be a homegrown team and the management is where this starts. Joey fortune knows the younger guy's like nobody else, along with him shay Boland for me. Fortune was brough in as a selector this year with senior side after having success as under 21 boss and I feel that was to give him an eye opener to the senior job

Sheedy would be fantastic next manager, there is a rumor going round DAVY FITZ!!!! the travelling is a huge strain on him and home life Travelling back and forth to Wexford so travelling to Dublin would be an easier option.
Can't see him leaving the Wexford job after the year they had myself
, but if he took the Dublin job it could be a huge change in The Dubs fortunes?

It's a high profile gig so there will def be some interested parties both inside and outside the county

There's the core of a good team there and hopefully players that left the panel will return and no doubt help to bolster what's already there

Whoever get's it I doubt they'll be able to turn it around very quickly

Hopefully we can be competitive in 1B and look to challenge for promotion and at least aim for a Leinster final appearance but with Kilkenny, Galway and now Wexford further down the road. Not an easy task.

I'll pitch a couple of names from outside.. Mattie Kenny (Cuala) Anthony Cunningham, Liam Sheedy, Donal Og Cusack

Need's to be almost be a 2-3 year project with the amount of young players that's currently there

McGrath would need to be off his rocker to leave his own county that he has brought to three all Ireland semi finals in a row to come to Dublin who are at our lowest point since we have become in the top bracket of teams again over the last decade.

I'm not suggesting your making it up or anything like that, just can't see any logical reason when you consider he's surely got nothing else on his mind other than an all ireland semi final to prepare for, managing Dublin would be the last thing he be thinking of this week.
for me the next manager has to be within the county itself. If we want to kick on and take that next step we have all the correct structures in place from underage up, we have two guys who have managed the bulk of the senior panel successfully at minor and under21, they will believe in the players it's something that can only happen from somebody within the county an outsider will I'm sure give it their best but at the end of the day deep down will always see Dublin as underdogs, the only people who can change that are people who don't view it that way and that's people from within who believe Dublin should be at the top.

Any truth in the rumours about Davy Fitz making a switch to Dublin.
I don't think he's the kind of manager Dublin need right now, I think he'd do a job but only short term
Dublin have a young squad that needs to be built upon for the next 5 years

Mattie Kenny (Cuala)

No?

Just missed out on the Galway job previously before committing then with Cuala once again

Knows our club game back to front

Knows the players, and will of course bring back the Cuala contingent into the fold

Honestly think he could do a great job and has already proven what he's capable of with Cuala winning an All Ireland title!!!!

Also you wont have to worry about him thinking that we're underdogs...

The man won an AI title with a bunch of posh boys ;)

He knows what Dublin hurling is truly capable of and

The last setup was completely dysfunctional and really Ger was blessed to see out his full term

There's a very good Dublin team on the way - it'll take a couple of years but it's coming.

yeah he would probably be next in line after the other two in my preference.
he has done a good job with cuala but in terms of the bunch of players on the senior panel and coming through fortune and boland have worked with them and know them, it would allow them to hit the ground running i feel and not take time to adjust
