You couldn't make it up if you tried, the barstool brigade can say what they like about 'moving on' and such dismissive crap but this is a very dark time for Kildare, I haven't felt as deflated since walking out of Croke Park in 1998.

Is this the same John McMahon who couldn't update the league table a few years ago? Safe hands!

Just curious, and forgive my ignorance.. But if a new Manager is proposed by JMCMahon (or whoever is shortlisting the new Man).. Do the Clubs etc get to vote on this aswell to ratify ?

It's my understanding that all such appointments have to be ratified by the board and usually go through without much fuss.

Yes new man will have to be ratified by the clubs to the best of my knowledge. I am open to correction on that though.

To my knowledge a new precendent was set two weeks ago so any new proposal should be sent out to the clubs for their 'soundings' ?

wonder if the county board will take their heads out of the sand and speak up now or are they waiting from a call from sarsfields first

Lads expecting to match Dublin or in some fantasy world beat them when they have poured millions into their teams preparations and will continue to pour millions of Euros in and us without a pot to piss in and more money being withheld as heard on KFM this morning. One supporter in England who gave €20,000 will no longer contribute because of the actions of a few. We'll need a few bucket collections just to fill that hole.

I await the Leinster expected by some with bated breath. It's cloud cuckoo land they are living.

Fair play to McGeeney. Nice classy statement. He will be a big loss to us.

Not at all. There has been club votes on certain other issues in the past and it didn't become the norm then either. The changes to the rules in respect of Croke Park is an example I recall.

And even so, why shouldn't clubs be entitled to direct their delegates as they see fit?

Baba, who on this forum expected a Lienster? Regardless of who is in charge we have a young team in transition who are going to take a few years to be at their best with a few of the old brigade retiring. I think players like Kelly, Hyland and Cribben are as good a prospects as any county have and maybe Flynn and Hurley to add to that list.
Don't kid yourself that McGeeney left the team in great shape. Dublin hammered us and it could have been a record score only for their poor finishing. That same Dublin team failed to hammer Meath, Cork and Kerry and indeed trailed two of those at half time. Does that not tell you something of our standing under McGeeney.
And insulting the CB is plain silly, almost half of them voted for McGeeney ffs. Had the vote been 29-28 the other way would any of you be calling for its removal or even votes of no confidence?
It was very badly handled and he deserved much better but he aint coming back. Do we close the door on Kildare football or move on and hope the next manager can be the one to achieve silverware. I'll still support Kildare when the O'Byrne Cup comes around in January.

Whoever the next manager is he will have a nightmare first couple of years.

First step for the new manager will be training the finest footballers in the county from being Mcgeeneys pumped up gym monkeys, back into the fine athletes they once were.

Remember lads, McGeeney took these fine players who were challenging for leinster titles, to the low status where they were annihilated and humiliated by a combined total of 29 POINTS by Dublin this year.

29 POINTS lads, 29 POINTS, it is a long road back from that kind of a low.

Funny but I missed that challenge for Leinster titles in 2008 -- how dd I miss that? As for "taking these lads" I think you may have missed it but it was a very different set of lads who suffered at the hands of the Dubs - because he saw fit to listen to the likes of us and bring in new blood from a very exciting Under 21 outfit - who by the way actually won a Leinster title THIS year under one Kieran McGeeney. But let's ignore that as it doesn't fit the script.

You are joking right. How many of you have trotted out the line six years and no silverware. Now you are not expecting silverware so which is it as it's hard to keep up.
McGeeney brought all those young players through because the likes of you where complaining not enough young players were being given a chance. When the inevitably fall against probably the best Dublin side for 30 years you spit the dummy out and want him gone.

Sky generation fan at it's worst.

Baba, I'm flattered you think I'm young enough to be a Sky generation fan. I grew up in an era of just one tv channel and have never had or will have Sky Sports in my home.
Its not hard to keep up with my argument although I admit I do pitch it at the level of the average member so that might explain it. I believe that with the current age profile of the squad it will take a few years to be really competitive again. Some players will retire, others will inevitably be passed over as not being good enough in the future. Thats football and we may have seen the best of some of the players who were stalwarts of the McGeeney period. Its not unreasonable to say we are in transition.
By the way I'm also flattered that McGeeney only brought in the young players because I complained!
I thought he was less fickle than that.

I am split 50/50 on the whole Kieran McGeeney issue but do have massive respect for the man.   The players who are out there on twitter posing their unhappiness with what happened last night will most probably be the same players who will be posting their delight when the next manager is appointed and stating that they can't wait to get back training, thats just the way it works.
As I said.

What I got from the interview with JD and Callaghan on the radio this morning is that they are keen to move on from the debacle.

The players would like to sit down and have a voice in the appointment of the new manager, not exactly a say or vote. A voice.

JD also stated that the young players we have coming through have to be given the same opportunities and commitment from the county board going forward.

He was noncommittal on his own future and said he would decide in the new year.

What I would read into this is that the players will not accept some half arsed attempt at a new manager that would more than likely be forced upon them by the absolute morons and imbeciles that currently occupy positions on the County Board.

On that, I still find it hard to fathom that the County Board have yet to formally respond to the players statement. At the next County Board meeting I expect and want resignations.
