Replying To Notrainingpitch:  "Thought you only dealt "in facts" baby!!"
Yes and this was the facts.

Never mind lads The Connaught Telegraph wide off the mark with that rumour.

Replying To Notrainingpitch:  "At this stage it would be great to get anyone at all. Nobody must want the job which is strange. Maybe its because fans expectations are so high and completely unrealistic."
I highly doubt anyone approached would factor in what supporters may think and what are the unrealistic expectations you speak of?

Any manager taking over a Div 1 team will first look first to see what facilities they have to work with, do they have the cash to bring in top rated coaches to improve the defensive issues of the team and what will be the strength of the panel e.g any major drop outs. finally they'll look at the probability of staying in Div 1 and to be competitive in championship.

I can't stop thinking of you. You're constantly on my mind.

Well it obviously wasn't the facts because it was untrue. So spin all you like but it was embarrassing for you and your multi faceted accounts.

Multi faceted accounts, don't be confusing yourself with me.

You wouldn't know the difference between rumours as was published in the national media and a fact is if it hit you in the face. How long will this latest account last? your obsession with me is well past embarrassing at this stage and all because I educated you on a topic that was way over your head.

The dates for the upcoming finals

Saturday 22nd October

Senior Hurling final in Athleague at 4pm

Padraig Pearses v Four Roads

That final doubles up with the U17 hurling final.

Sunday 23rd of October

Senior Football final in Hyde Park at 3pm

Strokestown v Boyle

That final double up with the U20 Div 2 final

Saturday 29th October

Junior A Football final

Padraig Pearses B v St Ronans at 3pm

Sunday 30th October in Hyde Park

Intermediate football final in Hyde Park at 2:30pm

Would make more sense to have the last two as a double header.

Are we about to take a massive step back with Cribbin seriously being linked with Roscommon job?

Pat Flanagan would be a better option than him and I've already given my views that Flanagan is more suitable to club football than inter County management.

Does anybody here know who's in the running. There was talk of Fergal O'Donnell at the weekend. It's no wonder that the Connacht Telegraph are playing April Fools in October with the way this appointment has been handled.

Pat Flanagan, Cribben and were begging every manager that's been with corofin the last 10 years.

Seems Don C couldn't be tempted while Nigel and Fergal didn't want to go for it.
Now 4 months since the Clare debacle and we're still at the rumour stage.

Tom Cribben would be a very good appointment. Huge experience and was highly regarded in westmeath taking them to the leinster final twice losing heavily to Dublin which we ourselves can testify too. Good experience with Kildare with Cian O Neill and Glen Ryan also.

For me Cribben is the best candidate way ahead of FOD, PF, Davy Burke, Kevin O Brien etc. Some posters in saying why can't we attract top managers , eh simple reason we are not a top team of which there is about 5 of.

Cribben won't suffer fools lightly if appointed and players not pulling their weight and we have a lot of those will pay the price. It will be good to see a freshness to the panel with some of the u20s from past 3/4 years becoming more regulars.

Without discarding some players you'd fancy 2/3 that will be moved on after giving great service to the county jerseybat all age groups. Some may opt out and rumour there is 3 going travelling all that started in championship teams when fit. Nobody can blame them if they do. Young lads have to have lives also.

He won't have to move on players it'll be a case of who is available.
I don't rate him, getting to a Leinster final when opposite side of Dublin is like being the best of the tailtean cup candidates.

Cribben has experience but is his 20 years of Failure. The fact that the highlight of his management was when he was still playing tells you alot of a man touching 60. He led Westmeath to division 4 and made a show of himself in a radio interview. Beaten a few poor Leinster teams is nothing to right home about. To say he is ahead of Fod or indeed O'Brien is absolute rubbish. We may not be competing for all Ireland's but we should be getting a better candidate then him.

Are we currently aware of players who possibly won't return for 2023 whatever the reason I.e. retirement, injury, work, travel?

Tom Cribben is not the man for Roscommon. He got to two leinster finals with two great wins vs Meath and Kildare but overall we really struggled when he was in charge of Westmeath. In the two seasons we got to leinster finals but got relegated from Div 2 and Div 3.

Roscommon need an inside manager like Frankie Dolan/Shane Curran to take the job

None of the above please!
Seems Cribbin not interested.
Looking like we're down to Pat Flanagan and AN Other.
