I'm not following the young Harte question?

I noticed. Perhaps spend more time elsewhere? Pomeroy maybe?

Again, you've lost me.  Mark Harte left Pomeroy to take up the role in Ballinderry. What's your point?

Looking at the league tables in the Irish News, its horrible reading. 
Derry conceded 11 goals, only Fermanagh and Offaly conceded more goals.
Derry conceded 103 points, only Roscommon, Laois and London conceded more points.
Our score difference of -34 was equal to Wicklow and just Roscommon (-46) and London (-53) faired worse.
All the evidence points a bigger margin of victory for Tyrone in the first round of the C'ship.

If the players had a forum to give constructive criticism about the management, that might be more interesting. Anyway stop "gurning" about 'fans' if you don't like "gurning"! Fans follow soccer. Like many on this forum, I am GAA to the core, always was always will be, but also entitled to my view. And as for Red Hand Man, was young Harte "roaded" from your club system? Derry defensive? Not really or we wouldn't be in Division 3!

"roaded"??? him and O'Donnell chose to leave after we won Ulster, the reason being they wouldn't manage a team against Errigal Ciaran. We'd have been delighted had they stayed on!!

Exactly. Don't know what point this guy is trying to make.

And who takes over?

it doesn't work like that in here. You give out about systems, player selection, management team, the filling in the post match sandwiches, but offer little to no alternatives.

It's a fairly depressing time to be a Derry (county) football man. I've only missed the one game so far this year due to a club clash, but that's what our usual gang do and it's even better now as my youngest buck has joined the travelling group. We'll do the same next year in Div 3. On Barton, he'll see out the season and baring an ambush of biblical proportions at CP against Tyrone, will be very lucky to be kept on for a 3rd year. I'm not one for knee jerk reactions and shouting for the dismissal of a man mid-season, but if a new man (and this is all hypothetical) was brought in, meaning the likes of Sean Leo, Liam, Sammy etc returned, Skinner accommodated (we need the best players wearing the red and white), then you'd be mad not to consider a change right now. As I said all hypothetical and Barton and co are probably busting themselves to make it work, it's just not happening for them.

Its a shame on those players who would not represent the county, all the focus on management, but its as much about the players who don't honour our county team, no respect for them at all.
There is not to many things I agree with TFAL on,, but on this he is absolutely correct, name a manager that won an All Ireland, in other words its the players, they have to be good enough, and its also the reverse, name a manger who relegated the team, in other words its the players who aren't good enough and the disgusting non commitment from players who are good enough but gone awol with no honour. We have some excuse for men in this county who think they can ball, but only on there terms. One thing I will say for Scullion and Barton, they never fecked off if they didn't like a manager of things in the camp weren't as rosy as one might want. Played through thick and thin.
cccc is a true supporter lol

Tony Scullion quit Pomeroy a few seasons ago mid-season when Burns and McGeary went to America for the summer!!
