Coleman is a big loss but McCarthy is rubbish.

I agree about eliminating the swarm.

Who should have the job Stallion?  Please don't narrow it down to 'someone who...'


Is this the question? The job should go to someone who is willing and available first and foremost. Of those who fulfill those criteria, I would give it to someone who hasn't been a serial failure throughout his managerial career, who will not persist with the slow sideways handpassing game, and who will not alienate the best players on the County.

Preferably someone who can see that the likes of Holly, Mallon, Lynn, Rodgers etc shouldn't be starting for Derry, although I understand not many would agree with me on all of those.

If you want me to name names I'm afraid I can't without interviewing all prospective managers to ascertain their views on the above matters. Surely that's obvious?

Which question is this now? Do you mean the one where he didn't want to hear my answer?

I don't get bored of speaking the truth, no.

Rome wasn't built in a day? Klopp has been in charge through 3 transfer windows and over 60 million spent, yet still hasn't replaced Mignolet, Henderson or Milner. If he isn't willing or capable of replacing those 3 glaring weaknesses in a year and a half it's inexcusable.

He scored those goals in a team which was better than Everton currently have, when he was fitter and had more pace than he currently has.

He's nowhere near the level Lukaku is at now yet would probably be on similar money, so it would be a step backwards for Everton. They should be pumping as much money as they can into sorting out the defence and midfield problems at Everton, not bringing in a finished player like Rooney.

Nothing to do with lacking motivation, Rooney just isn't a very good striker. He was never a truly world class striker even at his peak and now I think even Everton would be crazy to sign him.

I wasn't sticking the boot in, just struggling to reconcile the oft-stated opinion that Ireland are one of the best teams in Rugby with the fact they have NEVER won a knockout World Cup game, as well as the wild Irish celebrating after England won the Six Nations Title.

Still can't understand it and haven't received a satisfactory explanation tbh.

Can you reconcile with emotion Stallion? Jimmy White was one of the best snooker players I ever seen, but do you disregard his career and the enjoyment of watching him play because he never won the world championship?

I could go on, especially within the GAA - Declan Browne, Matty Forde, Derek Duggan, Benny Coulter etc., - all consigned to the dustbin because they didn't win the All Ireland?

But I am not going to go on, because you like stats - well, between England and the perennial greatest All Blacks -  36 times they played the best of the world of Rugby (friendly and competitive) and no-one could beat them. That is the best 23 players from the best Rugby playing nations in the world.

The only team that could beat them was a team from Ireland, 32 counties and all.

Take into consideration that one of these victories that this All-Ireland team achieved was the first ever in the history of Irish Rugby, a feat that none of the great Irish teams could achieve in the past.  And that the other prevented the first back to back grand slams by any team in the Six Nations era - and that it was Ireland that stopped England.

If these considerations do not raise any sense of celebration or joy in you - then you are a rock my friend.

I think it was applesisapples that said it correctly - I am glad I am one of those that can enjoy this sort of occasion.




I enjoyed watching Jimmy White, Forde etc. I'm not sure what that has to do with anything though. Ireland play a really dull and unadventurous brand of rugby, so not only are they not a genuinely great team, they are also hard to watch. This was not the case with White, Forde etc.

Did you play ever rugby Stallion? How would you know what is dull and whats not?



Is this a serious question?  I know what is dull because it doesn't entertain me.

69 million may seem a pittance to you, but it is more than enough to improve on Mignolet, Henderson and Milner. Klopp failed to do that. I note that you consider it money well spent.
