London Footballers 2019

(Oldest Posts First)

Any word on London footballers for the upcoming National League? Any new players? How is training going? Division 4 is fairly open this year if you take Derry out of it. Have they a chance of possibly sneaking promotion?

be surprised to see London causing too many surprises in the league, maybe a win or two.

So Deely has left. Judging by his social media posts and the interview he's done with RTÉ, he's not too happy.

Wonder what direction they'll go with next

Have to say I'm massively surprised at this. Looking from the outside, he appears to have brought a level of professionalism not seen before over here (No offence to any of the previous managers) mainly through his career background and he seems quite an innovative coach. Also, developing the London born players will be vital for long term sustainability.
Can't really get my head around why the county board got rid of him.

guess the two things the board would be looking at are results and the cost. Results have not improved greatly, one win over Wexford and ran Galway close. From what I know he had quite a large backroom team and lets be honest London GAA is not flush with cash.
Question know is who will take over.

Wonder if they'll go for someone like Michael Maher. Homegrown and would be a step up.

see a previous post from someone yesterday was taken down!

I think if its best person for the job Maher won't get it, but if they are looking at getting more home grown players involved I can see them going with a home grown manager. Coggins has said he would be interested, he has brought a lot of the young TCG lads through and has had success at club level and off course his previous success with the county team. It will be interesting to see what happens after the senior championship in London if Fulham or Neasden were to win I am sure Hanlon and Mulligan would come into the frame. I could see Mulligan being an attractive option has he would attract quite a bit of media attention.
