Being Dublin 'water boy' and the real brains behind their All Ireland win pays a hell of a lot more than Cavan can afford!

Replying To cavanblueman:  "In fairness to Mickey, had a hell of a lot of work to do with what he was left with. I certainly think we did move forward and he brought a good few young lads into the panel, we got to back to back Ulster Finals for the first time since the 60s and won an Ulster Title for the first time since 1997, he also has left us in a good place in Division Two and with the current squad of players, it probably the level that we should be at. It was his time to go, so now its up to the Co Board to appoint his successor, which I've already pointed out, that if its some of those mentioned, then any good work will be undone."
He took over when Cavan were in Division 1. Playing Division 1 in 2019 was a big factor in reaching the Ulster final that year.

The age of the team was 24 to 28 when Graham took over. You diss every other Cavan manager and Mickey Graham can do no wrong

How anyone can say Mickey Graham brought Cavan forward is bonkers logic when he brought the team from Div 1 to 4 in 3 years… If he had his way it wasn't his time to go but the CB finally acted ( 2 years late ) and gave him the push…as nobody was bothered going to see the team anymore… Whoever takes over has a big job ahead thanks to those before them…The CB waited far too long to act…

2 X back to back Ulster Final appearances since the 60s = Forward
1 x Ulster Final win since 1997 = Forward
Relegation to Div 4 = Backward
Promotion from Division 4 to Division 2 = Forward

Thats 1 step back, 3 steps forward - there's your logic

You obviously weren't in Breffni Park for the Armagh match, it was a full house.
I was at the Westemeath League match earlier in the year in Cusack Park, there was 6000 supporters there, the majority from Cavan, so if your statement that nobody was bothered going to see the team anymore is total nonsense and without basis, there were good crowds in Breffni at any match over Graham's tenure, the only time there was a drop off by Cavan supporters was during the black death era of TH.

Should be obvious by now that foreverBlue2 doesn't do facts.

If you think 10500 is a full house for Breffni park then you are as we all know here clueless… less than 1000 for a home championship game v Laois… 3000 v Down in a home QF with most of them from Down … Live in your land of fantasy if you like but most of us prefer reality…. The CB had to take action before the place was empty…. They just took too long about it was the problem….

Hyland's last Ulster championship match in Breffni Park was v Armagh in 2016 official attendance over 15,000, coincidently Mickeys last Ulster championship match in Breffni was also v Armagh official attendance just over 11,500.

Fact… Breffni park holds 25000 so if 10/11000 turn up how is the place packed…? Yet another clueless poster…!

But Cavanblueman says it was packed… maybe he was asleep with the dour football on display

Danny Hughes? Please, not another aspiring new Coach that's gets to try out and make all his early career mistakes on us. We've had too many of them. Experience at a high level required here

I'd agree.

Is he currently the only outside name confirmed?
I did hear Declan Bonner. More experienced I suppose.

Could say the same about Jason too. I see Micheál McDermott mentioned too.. Proven to be adaptable too and would probably bring something new.

Word going around that Galligan has as good as got the job……. I hope the word is wrong… Absolutely no experience

Given the under age talent available to any new manager and raft of retirements to come it does not matter who gets the job even god himself would be going no where division 3 and tailteann cup will be our lot for the next few years.

Surely it can't be Galligan, you'd imagine there'd be uproar if it was. The man still has so much to offer in goals. From the moment Graham stepped away, I thought the job was made for Mickey Harte. He's probably brought Louth as far as they can go and well before schedule. Having watched his punditry on BBC, he seems to have a soft spot for Cavan. Doesn't seem likely now anyway.

Could never understand the negativity after the Down game. Lads that had no interest in Tailteann cup beforehand were now calling it the end of an era and all sorts of nonsense. The reality is the Tailteann cup was never a big deal other than securing Sam Maguire next year, that of which is still very much in our hands.

For my money, the current Cavan job is a very attractive proposition. You have a core group all in their twenties and a number of promising young lads coming through. Also a number of high quality players around the county that need be asked in. An exciting season next year once we stay in division 2 and can play in Sam. Watching the likes of Westmeath and Monaghan competing at that level should give us inspiration that anything is possible.

Reading the celt this week it did feel like readers are being prepped to receive a rookie.
I dont feel to many are looking for an all ireland winning manaager but we certainly dont want a player looking to make the transition into maagement. thats the other extreme. Or someone who had a name as a player aand happens to be in management. Anyone with a track record of improving teams and winning at a respectable level would be prefer able. We need to actively scope them out at colleges, all ireland club, and ladies competitions as they take place. And not wait to see who wants a shot at the job when the incumbent has had enough. Lord save us.

Would Eamon Murray (Gowna man who managed the Meath Ladies to 2 All Irelands) be someone the CB should look at?
