Who should get the Dublin hurling job now?

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Mattie Kenny is the man for the job, lots of hurling people in Galway disappointed he didn't get the Galway job, regardless of us been in the final now. Added advantage is he knows the club scene in Dublin. I don't know the man personally either !!!!!!!

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."
What ? Like Daly you mean.
Outsider who didn't think that way at all and brought success.

Daly still viewed us as underdogs and it held us back as he was too reluctant to back the players at times and play with more attacking freedom
anybody who took over the job at the time he did would have had success as at that time we had a group of player's coming together that was way above what we had for the previous twenty years

Rubbish and more unprovable stuff of what might have been to back up a silly post.
Daly backed his players all the way and won league and Leinster when Kilkenny were still a force.

How is it lies it's obvious he didn't let loose when the games where there to be won against tipp in 2011 semi final and cork in 2013 semi final, yeah we win a league title then played kilkenny in Leinster few weeks later and got annihilated.
we win Leinster and then nowhere the following year again, too many constraints and stick to tactical plot of playing not enough man up forward, all stems from not backing the players enough.
The year before Daly took over we were beaten by wexford with last pick of the game in wexford park the following year we beat them by a point, there was clear signs the year before he took over that there was a team building.

What are you talking about ?
Didn't let loose !
They won titles that Dublin hadn't won in decades and to say that the next manager has to come from within the county when it was an outsider that done what none of the previous could do is plain daft.
Why has it to be someone from within the county ?

They were inconsistent and that was acknowledged by Daly but they came close to beating Cork also in a SF until O Dwyer was sent off.
You can only dream of that now after the disaster that Cunningham presided over.
He had more or less the same group when he took over and look what happened.
How quickly you forget.Your suggestion that plenty could have done what Daly done is pure speculation and has no basis in fact.

The best person for the job, it shouldn't matter where he is from, it doesn't to me anyway. I'd take Daly back in a heartbeat if he wants the gig again, he had the utmost respect of all the players and wouldn't fall out with a few of them either!!

Is some one having a laugh pay gilroy as hurling boss? Did a great organisational job for dublin footballers but was lacking on sideline when mickey whelan left. How can he get the job in front of mattie Ryan ?

Dare I say it this is like the time Meath 'Witch Doctor' was appointed Meath football manager, even though he was a hurling man first and foremast.

I am amazed Gilroy is going for it not just because he is a football man.
But because he left Dublin at the top when he had returned Sam.
You would think he would be happy with the quiet life?

I suppose the only way is up for Dublin hurling he cannot do any worse then that Cork eejit.

Players will definitely play for Gilroy he has legend status in Dublin GAA.
If he does get it....which is still a big IF
It will be interesting to see if he manages to coax a few fellas from the big ball game back to the small ball?

The gamble is based on the fact that Gilroy was approached three years ago about the job after Daly went. Possibly people who are privy to him feel he has more time on his hands now to take on a role like this, time will tell if it happens

Well Daly is free! I know they say you should never go back to a job you left, but worth a shout.

Yep, resigned his post in Limerick.
Coincidence ?

I think he wouldn't be a bad choice at all.
Knows the job and would get players wanting to play for Dublin again.

If Daly gets it is the appointment after him that will be the crucial one
I can only see it as a short term stint.

I like it but would feel to complete that management team I would include shay
boland and Joey fortune.
both guys have had huge success at minor and under 21 with the bulk of these players and know the club scene inside out, it would enable the other two laws to hit the ground running and not use a year to get familiar with the players as they would know the strengths and weakness of each player
