That Ex Kildare u20 manager is Davy Burke not Lynch.

Some might have been named on here or another forums/twitter etc but none of Liam Tully,Kearns,Sheridan,Higgins,McConville names wasn't link in the media in regards to the Roscommon job. Rochford and Bohan was linked on the independent,Examiner both stories look like guess work by the two journalists.

The only way I see us appointing a new manager by the end of group stages is to give Pat Flanagan the job, personally i think I'll wait a bit longer for another option.

Not a great sign if that's our only option or that's the only real option we have.

Ian Cooney in The Roscommon Herald reported Liam Tully, Pat Flanagan amd Liam Kearns who is obviously out of the running now that he is confirmed as Offaly boss. The Eaminer printed last week Pat Flanagan was going to be announced as the Longford manager and how far off has that turned out.

Bohan was the only consistent name and that was probably because of the approach made the last time.

There should be in no rush. I'm sure any backroom team will include some local coaches as selectors so they'll be well versed in who is having a good championship.

Replying To Primrose_and_blue:  "Apparently Pat Flanagan now the front runner for the county job after being a shoe in for the Longford job last week. Really don't know what to make of it all at this stage but if that's true it's the completely wrong appointment in my opinion - he has failed to make any impact in the counties he has previously managed and his football is simply not suited to the modern intercounty game (particularly at division 1 level). While Pearses did well to win a Connacht title last year, they had a helping hand from the referee against Mountbellew/Moylough and beat a very average Knockmore side who won a poor mayo championship. If we are going down this route (And can't attract any established intercounty names) I would rather someone like Don Connellan with some fresh ideas, has worked with young players in NUIG and who has no loyalties to any of the players in the current panel."
The ref beat Mountbellew with Mike Daly seeing red at the end literally but Pearses play nice ball to be fair.

You would worry that potential managers see Roscommon as having reached a certain level and that's as far as they will go. They might see the likes of Offaly as a more attractive prospect who have the potential to move further up the ladder. I hope that's not the case. You'd hope we could appoint a dynamic manager who aims to break us into the top 8. We probably could do with a few more wealthy backers. As said above, there is no way Roscommon could afford the background team McStay has put together.

Well said. I agree with all of that.

I'd be going all in for Solan now. Pat Flanagan was just what Pearses needed but we can't go with the same laboured lateral slow play.

Why solan. Would you want Eamon O'Hara anywhere near the team. Don't think Solan is up to the job tbh

I'd figure any of the 3 Mayo tickets would be solid choices - looking to prove a point to the selection committee that went elsewhere!

I am not sure any of the Mayo candidates would take on Ross. Maybe Solan and Shaw but Pat Flanagan has achieved way more than either of those. TBF to Flanagan he has achieved great things with Pearses with a limited number of forwards considering Niall Carty plays centre forward for them.

Apparently there was no nominations for the senior job at all and the deadline was extended. Two names at least in for u20 with possibly a third one.

Longford tried the young and upcoming coach and it didn't work. Derry went for Gallagher who had great experience with Donegal amd Fermanagh before that.

Unless there is going to be a financial package put together we will be dealing with the normal run of the mill candidates including Fergal O Donnell and Nigel Dineen.

Roscommon would want to be very careful with this appointment. You have an excellent set up at Galway and Mayo will be re energised with a heavy weight management team. There are a lot of counties on the up with big backing such as Kildare and Offaly to a lesser degree. The wrong man in charge and we could start sliding.

Any idea who is in for the 20's job?

Solan won't leave leitrim now. I have that on good authority and I only deal with factual information. He is staying with leitrim so ye may look elsewhere for a manager. Thanks.

With McStay in Mayo and Flanagan in Roscommon it must be happy days for Galway.

Media getting carried away with this Flanagan news. He's in for the job but that's it.

He knows all about beating Galway in Connacht finals too, he will have Mayo charged up if they meet the tribe next summer.

I hope David Casey is in for u20 job.
I heard last year's minor manager, Nugent is in for it.

Mayo are always charged meeting Galway. There was only 1 point in it at the end of their championship clash in Castlebar last April. I agree that the Roscommon county Board need to get this appointment right. There's potential in this Roscommon team but time isn't infinite and both Mayo and Galway will be tough next Summer. Galway will want to go one step further than this year and Mayo will get a bounce under Kevin McStay. I do wonder however with Mayo are there too many big hitters in the back room team. Rochford, Buckley and McHale. Not sure that will work.
