Wylie had one of his most difficult years and beggans kickouts where found out to an extent..give N Kearns two more years and he may well just be in the elite bracket with fenton in midfield.everyone is jumping the gun writing us off we have the players to sight tight for a few more years but we cannot afford let men walk away Eg: Freeman Kerr and Gartland.. we haven't the pick to allow this"
Everyone is going to jump on the Beggan kick-out thing now because Kieran Hughes said it in the Irish News the other day.

What did he say about the kickouts?

Stephen Rochford would be a good shout but he would need top class local men who know the Monaghan club scene inside out. Martin Corey might be prized from Cavan, Colm Malone has a good record and Andy Callans CV in club football over the past 3-4 years is second to none. Ciaran Donnelly the Scotstown manager another man not mentioned yet for it.

Whoever gets it - I hope they've put their hand up already! Despite what we think and the names mentioned - there are no obvious choices. The obvious choice is the person who wants it the most. Management is a thankless job.

No manager is beyond scrutiny as we've witnessed on this board over the past 3 months!!! Good luck to whoever gets it but they really need to want it!

you must not see too many kickouts if you cant see that for yourself.... points conceded in all games from them

Rochford a non runner. Purely based on logistics, current job, distance etc. Donegal just about doable from Castelbar. Monagahan is not ... 6 hour round trip. One reason why O'Rourke could last 7 years is that he was relatively local and had summers off. You want a situation where the new man will stay for 3 or 4 years to develop the squad. So it needs to be sustainable. Tony McEntee has all the credentials ... if the county board can actually get him.

What about Mattie McGlennan a gentleman and people know him around Monaghan and what he is capable of doing should he get players that are willing to listen to him and want to play for him and their jersey.

Just read the Kieran Hughes interview with the Irish news fairly strong stuff. Don't think any of these lads bar Dessie and Vinnie will be walking away so the squad will be demanding from the county board a top appointment to replace malachy.

You have to bear in mind that at no time in 2019 did Rory have his best midfield facing him for his kickouts. Niall missed the entire league and Darren missed the entire championship. There were many games, Roscommon, Galway and Kerry being 3 painful examples of where we got "ate" at midfield.
I recall being presently surprised on how well we managed at midfield v Cavan but I thought we'd get destroyed there. The bottom line is that we were never going to get the success we got in 2018, because teams made plans for Rory. We used to have a kickout that would release Karl into space. We used it several times v Kerry in Inniskeen. I don't recall us getting a single one of those kickouts away this year.
If we can get Darren and Niall back and maybe give young Mealiff a go. Maybe we can rebuild the launch pad for 2020.
Also, I'd agree with many who have said that this side us far from being done.
Malachy was brilliant but I think in some respects he had lost the dressing room. Only Dublin in their pomp have come close to scoring 2-17 against us. No harm to Armagh, they are a decent side but a Monaghan team at full throttle keeps them to around 15 points. The first goal sums up the problem, there is no way a forward is that free v a Monaghan team since 2013.
There's still much to work with here so we can't afford another botched appointment like we did with Eamon McEnaney.

Mick Bohan, managed Dublin Ladies to All Ireland titles since taking the reins in December 2016. But he committed two more years in late 2018 so has a year left unless he decides to go early.

A PE Teacher by trade, he previously worked as a skills coach alongside Jim Gavin when All-Ireland wins were achieved at U21 level in 2010 and 2012, and then with the seniors in 2013.

He was involved in Sigerson Cup wins with DCU, and has enjoyed spells with Dublin clubs Lucan Sarsfields, Thomas Davis and his home outfit of Clontarf. He worked as a coach to the Clare senior footballers in 2016, alongside Colm Collins.

Similar to Malachy when he was appointed in 2013, plenty of achievements and it would be going somewhat under the radar, He seems to of been successful everywhere he went so could be a good shout

County Board won't pay big money to get someone in, so that's Jim McGuinness, Stephen Rochford and Banty out of the equation.
They could go for Pete McGrath, but I'd expect Mattie McGleenan or Kieran Donnelly to take over.

Who ever came up with the name Mick Bohan? Great suggestion. Class manager. Very good coach and fella. Great name to throw in the pot and would be great appointment in my opinion

I personally would like to see a former all ireland winner take the reigns. be it from playing or managing.

A person whose "been there and done that"

I suppose Mick Bohan ticks that box. So does jimmy mcguinness and oisin mcconville.

Here's one name I haven't seen mentioned yet - Peter Canavan? definitely can bring some good qualities but maybe sky has him wrapped up for now.
Would any monaghan fans like to see sean cavanagh or ryan mcmenimen (or the likes) involved in the management team?

Yes Canavan is a great name in the mix. Class. So would McMenamin . Not dying about Cavanagh after he slated Mickey Harte who after all led him to 3 Sams
