Replying To sourmilk93:  "Could do more harm than good to his cv taking over another county.

My own personal opinion is none of the local names mentioned will get the job. Wouldnt be surprised if the manager was one of Davy Burke, Kevin O'Brien or Cian O'Neill"
If rumours are to believed two of those 3 latter names are to be interviewed by the selection committee next week.

Replying To OhtobeARossie:  "Doms vs fuerty - fuerty aet
Croans vs Eire og - croans by 7
Gaels vs strokestown - gaels aet
Brigids vs boyle - boyle aet

Get on the draws."
Agreed. Won't be surprised if 1 or two games needs extra time to separate them this weekend.

I'm going to side with Brigids, Roscommon Gaels, Dominics, Croans, Ronans and Pearses B in the 6 semi finals

Would absolutely take him but would Cian O'Neill leave Galway?

Hardly after Galway getting to the All Ireland Final this year and Joyce has got a new 3 year term to go one better so O'Neill will likely be part of that. I saw on another gaa website that FOD, Nigel Dineen, Pat Flanagan and James McCartan of Down will be interviewed. Don't know if that's the case.

Think match of weekend will be Dominics v Feurty and I'd give a hesitant nod to Doms AET just on account of the hurt of losing the last two finals. Anything else will see their manager and team start to break up to a degree.

Gaels will have 4-6 pts to spare over Stokestown particularly if weather is bad as Gaels will have more physicality.

I'd expect Bridgids to beat Boyle based on how much of a missed opportunity Glaveys wasted last weekend to beat Boyle. Tbf Galveys were getting stronger every week as year went on.

Croans should have too much for Eire Og but I wouldn't be surprised if Croans took eye off ball thinking they were already in final.

Personally on the manager front I'd like to see a new man from outside the county just for freshness and to shake up the panel which has gone very stale over past few years. I'd be moving on a few and bring oin a few u20s from past 2/3 years.

I'd hazard a guess on the 2 being Burke and O'Brien.
O'Neill seems to be more a no.2 type.
As for Sunday wouldn't it be great if Boyle and Strokers get to the Final?
Would be a breath of fresh air from the usual big 3.
Sadly I expect Brids and Gaels to qualify.

Replying To Jack L:  "I think Cian O'Neill has committed to Padraig Joyce and Galway for another year."
I actually heard the opposite! That O'Neill was taking a year out

Any word on any players that are available or unavailable for next year?

Mumblings that he wasn't staying on with Galway. Could be complete rumour but that's why I included his name with other two above,

Replying To unclegerry:  "I heard that, but that could be changed very easily.. Logistically it works well for him.. He obviously wants to manage Mayo down the line... Getting experience in Div 1 would be a big addition to the old CV"
I really can't see him ever being involved in Roscommon. He certainly wouldn't have much love for us! And Andy has already said that he's back with him again this year.
It's becoming a real issue at this stage. Obviously whoever gets the job now is far from 1st choice candidate, as they would have been appointed weeks ago if they were. I hope whoever it is gets the full backing of the players and is able to keep them together to give him a chance

So many rumours now it's impossible to know what's true. I've heard from a couple of people that Dineen was approached. Also heard James McCartans name which seems a strange one.

Replying To dave1988:  "I think the cb are under serious pressure now especially after what went on during the week with Donaghy. People saying Davy burke is up for interview and seems like a very knowledgeable lad who is only 34 I think. But then again it's hard to believe anything you hear now. They obviously have 3 /4 candidate's for interview but are they good enough we will see in the next 10 days"
CB appear to have made a complete hash of this. It looks like they are waiting for Club teams from other counties to be knocked out of championship before interviewing potential managers. All good and well but our own Championship is now coming to an end and potential players will not be seen again until next year. Don't be surprised to see a Garda as next manager. Its becoming an unhealthy situation in CB where it is made up of Garda and School Masters. How many more CB's around the country have the same makeup?

I would say a manager is in place but that manager is involved with a club who are still involved in the championship and no announcement will be made until the club has exited the championship. I could be wrong but I have a feeling that is the current position.

I imagine Limerick had an agreement reached with Ray Dempsey before this week.

I wouldn't think so. Especially after the CB Chairman said he'd hope that interviews would hopefully start soon.

We haven't got to interview stage yet to have one in place.

Brigids to win v Boyle. The Kiltoom men possess too much for Boyle who have too often came a cropped at semi final stage. If there is ever a time for Boyle it's now. But I still fancy Brigids I this one.
Ros Gaels were impressive for a finish second half v Pearses but personally i fancy Strokestown to win this in a close tense encounter. It promises to be a good game so let's hope weather remains good.

I think Croans who are making progress will have enough for Eire Og who were lucky to win v Brigids B. I think this should be close but the Ballintubber outfit should have a few points to spare to book a ticket for the final.
The game between Fuerty and St Dominics is being billed as game of the weekend. Often this goes awry and actually turns out to be the worse game of the lot. I think it may work out that way. Doms easily here for me. I think they'll have way too many aces for the Fuerty team.

I see they charging E15 tomorrow for entry. Surely a tenner was enough. Charging E15 to students a disgrace. Last Sunday in the Hyde I had a 16 and 17 year old with me and the gate men insisted on a ticket for both.
