This Wednesday is the deadline for clubs to submit nominations for the vacant post of Mayo senior football manager. Ahead of this deadline it’s difficult to speculate on when the new manager will be in place or indeed who that new manager might be but this latest managerial furore to engulf the county does raise a number of pertinent questions that are worthy of debate about how and why we keep ending up in such a position at such regular intervals.
In this bonus episode of the Mayo News football podcast we assess where things currently stand in the appointment process and how it’s likely to develop from here. Host Rob Murphy and I provide an overview to the situation while Mike Finnerty and Edwin McGreal of the Mayo News delve deeper with Rob into an issue that continues to bedevil this key position within Mayo GAA, questioning why those charged with finding a new manager cannot at the same time come up with a better process for doing so.
