in my opinion this is a trivial topic. come on at the end of the day we sud be talking about football, not the administrators that try to run it

County Board chairman is an important position, personnally i think every man going for it should have a plan on way forward for Sligo GAA, how to do things better and should state what he will do on the vote night. Clearly there is plenty to improve on. We need to re structure a few things and give county players more club games.

We need to ratifiy Managers earlier, we have no U21 OR U18 county manager and after last yrs late johnston appointment we have all but repeated that mistake, no excuse as its been 6 months since Sligo lost u21 final, and the minors lost in June, So whats the hold up. The whole idea of having the u20 NOW is to give the u21 county manager a look at all the players in the county.. This is where the current chairman and CB need to have a long look in the mirror. Hopefully the new one will be a little more proactive.

So much i could say but it is an important position, not just a stepping stone to getting on commitees in Croke Park or handing out trophies.

spot on sligoian, the county board chairman sets the agenda and tone, like a team manager, if he is out of depth team reflects same. john murphy i believe has been excellent on the whole, might not have always got it right but we are in a better position now for the future

Dont forget Joe Leonard of Curry also looking for it. So two Curry men even though club can only nominate 1!!

Shane Anthony, what exactly has John Murphy done in the 5yrs to justify that you think hes done a good job?

Michael leonard from curry pulled out datsrite i heard but not sure.

Apologies Michael Leonard indeed. Spoke to Curry officer and a county board officer yesterday and both said he was still in the race. Curry are trying to whittle it down to one man but neither will stand down.

in all honesty sligonian, i cannot think of any1 better to do the job than your good self. imo you have a better knowledge of sligo football than any of the contenders, and you wud definately get my vote.

Thanks Johnno1 for the massive compliment and the sincerety behind it as usual. It is highly unlikely that i will ever been involved in Sligo GAA as an administrator at any level.

i dont c why not. you, more so than all the other administrators hav the well-being of sligo football at heart. sligo football wud benefit from having yourself at the helm, i am sure. does any1 else agree with this?

What are Curry at ? How can they nominate two club members for the one job ? Cyril Feehily has served as vice chairman for 5 years and would be the obvious successor. His club man Michael Leonard is currently dev officer. With the new training facility project you would imagine he would have enough on his plate there. Interesting times ahead !!!!!!!!!!!!!

They can't nominate two, only one thats why they're trying to whittle it down but which ever doesnt get the support of their club for nomination could be nominated by another club.

Ive been taking your comments as a pinch of salt john, your clearly on the wind up. Lets just hope the next county chairman does a good job and listens to the clubs.

sligion there are times i wonder how loyal you are , there is constant negativity running through your posts, if you can do any better give up your time and energy.

Nomination papers arent even with the secretaries yet. Although they're due to arrive this week I'm told and don't close until 12th November.

Shane anthony, your questioning my loyalty because i asked you a simple question, you made a broad statement and gave no examples to back it up. Instead of answering you try to deflect attention and go on the offensive which i would call negative. My question was not negative, i was giving you the opportunity to list all the good things the outgoing chairman has done and you didnt come up with anything. My time and energy is going into coaching and management at present not administration. What is loyalty to people like you? Being a yes man and telling everyone and everything is great and nothing can be improved on, is that it?
