Replying To leitrimforsam:  "I speaking as a Melvin Gaels supporter. Their in a precarious position in the league. 2 points up on Annaduff at half time. The Manorhamilton draw with Mohill leaves the blue and white in a serious bit of bother.
Question. Does been in the bottom two in the league have you playing in the Intermediate championship next year"
No league and championship completely separate. Will go to the final game now to see if ye stay in division 1. Gortletteragh heading for Division 3 by the looks of it too. Is there league finals in any of the divisions this year?

Just a quick one if Mike Solan does get the Leitrim job Andy Moran should go straight after Stephen Rochford to replace him with leitrim. No doubt Stephen will have lots of offers and Maybe colm O Rourke will pinch him for meath. Rochford got the most out of Andy Moran as a player so they would clearly have a good relationship.

Replying To Backheel:  "Good restaurant at w8. There are 5 pubs open at the minute 2 do food all on the Main Street two as are most of cafe and takeaways. Just down from accommodation. Cafe at the castle nice outdoor seated area and Cafe above super value too."
Thanks a million. W8 is a great spot for the fodder alright. The accommodation itself is a grand job if a little thrown up in places.
Fowley falls and Séan McDs homes place done.
Biddys had music Fri night but was too busy so the market bar did the finest.
Mullaghmore and glenfarne today for the gala. We are spoiled up here people.

Hope Mike S stays in another note!

Will Solan be welcome back if he doesn't get the Mayo job along with O Hara in Mohill?

Are there 2 teams relegated fom the Div 1 league and the Reserve Div 1 league.
If there are 2 going down from each one
Melvin Gaels are relegated from both.

Am I correct that 2 are relegated from both leagues

With open arms. We badly need him. Anyhow, hard to know what way it will go in Mayo... the politics is strong. I think McStay would be deserving of the job.... not so sure the Mayo County Board would see it that way.

Majority of the players aren't too keen for him to come back if he doesn't get his preferred job and rightly so

Let's be honest Solan is the brains of the operation... in all truth he should be managing the team. Anyhow, Leitrim was always going to be a 'stepping stone' job... perhaps he should have waited until next time round but he's entitled to take the opportunity when it comes. I don't think he'll get the job but we'd be worse off without him if he does.

Can't argue with a man wanting to manger his own county and if his bid to land his dream job falls short it will be an advantage to leitrim tbh. Couldn't begrudge him that opportunity

kentuckytucky are you one of these "supporters" that has just a big interest for the county scene and just a small passing interest for club football?

Imaginary talks with Roscommon players seems to be his biggest interest.

You said over on roscommon thread that I had used enough of your time. Yet you logged in here with two of your accounts to try and belittle me yet again as you have tried to do on your own thread. Even your own posters have said they don't listen to you. So why would you think Leitrim posters would? Now please drop the act of superiority as I have said and just remember you are an anonymous poster/posters on a gaa forum. Thank you.

Oh i hope for our sake solan stays on as he is the main man there. From speaking to the lads they have more respect for him than moran.

I have heard differently Moran very hands on very much the main man and the players have the utmost respect for Moran.

I suppose it depends which players you talk to. Moran is hands on definitely but its solan who has devised the training plans etc. He definitely has a major role in it. He's the man a lot of mayo people want which says a lot.

Why, do you think, that McStay is deserving of the Mayo job?

Because we won't have to listen to his commentary on TV! Now that's as good a reason as you will get for giving him some job.,Any job!
