On the future-
I only hear only good things about McEntee so I am optimistic. However there are unknowns some people are in denial about - he has no Intercounty management experience, ZERO and he never won Connacht in his time with Mayo. Being a club manager is different and so is being a coach or selector. His character and football knowledge comes across as very strong and to a point what we need but there are no guarantees as I hope he has a good read on players. Is this going to be a mediocre setup? I don't think so but I am still concerned about how bad we were last 2 years under the current backroom team. It just doesn't make sense given the CV's or opinions of the backroom team.
For me, if Sligo have another bad year I would cut short the 3-year plan. I am not looking for unrealistic targets, we have to be in the mix for promotion but it's not a be-all to get promoted, we have to improve the pace in the team, we have to stop conceding goal chances, we have to be consistent in our performances. Depending on the Connacht draw we have to show something more than a complete hammering in the championship. If you lose to Waterford at home and beat Wexford away, that drives me nuts because that is effort and mindset. McEntee's job in his 1st year is to give the People of Sligo some hope, some pride and belief that has been sadly lacking the last few years. Like every Sligo supporter, I wish him well.
Thanks, MonaghanGlory for your kind words and well wishes. Best of luck to yourselves.
