Replying To Donegal_abroad:  "Not talking silly, everyone has their right to a view and I respect that. But I just don't buy the idea that the players aren't good enough. It's a cop out for me and it's a way of excusing almost anything.

In 2010, we had a pretty abysmal year and within 2 years were All Ireland champions. I always believe the players are in Donegal. We have really only awakened as a proper force since the McGuinness era, before that we were always talented but the structures weren't really in place. The McGuinness era was a culture shift and badly needed. The problem is that we have pretty much reverted back full circle again. I don't see why management needs more than 5 years and why it needs constant defending at this point, sorry I just don't get that.

It's a shame that Declan hasn't read the room and clearly next week's meeting with McGrath means he is staying on, as it wouldn't be made public knowledge in advance if he was being asked to step aside. Again, I'm at pains to say most people in the county have massive respect for Declan and all he has given in service to Donegal football, but sometimes it's time to face actual reality."
Listen here I don't think bonner will come back. I read nothing into next weeks meeting. . I think he's had enough. Enough of backstabbers keyboard warriors especially fools I personally know who don't attend games or never kicked a ball in there lives a few on here I may add. I still stand by my prediction that the talent is not there, good players but lacking that extra step.please god I'm proved wrong but honestly I can't see it. I want my county to do well. But I'm reading a lot of nonsense of how talented the playersthat's in the county are. Let Mc Hugh take it on now ..

Feeling mutual lad. It's about time you and your friends consider going to games instead of your foolish talk on here.. it's pathetic listening to your rants. Nothing positive to say or any solutions just . You sneak off to other forums then and run bonner and rochford to the ground. Get a life you f••l.. what will you do when bonner steps down you'll have nobody to run down.. as I say there's a few barren years coming and god help the poor unfortunate man that gets the job. We deserve nothing these players give there lives for Donegal and to have about a thousand supporters to about 19 thousand Armagh supporters says all about yous. Not interested in listening to crap about losing interest after the Ulster final, sure we were outnumbered by about 3/1 at Ulster final by Derry above all teams.. makes me laugh listening to yous on here.. as if yous deserve a good team. Lol

The fact is as senior manager in his two spells (8 years), all he has accomplished is two ulster final wins, one against fermanagh and the other against cavan. At a time when tryone were rebuilding, and armagh and derry were finding there way.
Not one All Ireland semi final.
For a county with the talent we have, that is a pretty poor record.
Sadly that is the ambition of rorysboys and Declan, and rorysboys is happy to give this manager another 3 years.
Thankfully there are supporter's out there that are airing there displeasure at our lack of ambition and voted with there feet.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.
The time has come to try something new, there are no guarantees that it will work , but surely we have to try. And who knows, maybe we will find a great manager in the mould of mcguinness.

Still waiting for you to tell us what your source said. I wouldn't listen to anyone apart from yourself seeing as you are so well connected.
