    Is the fair too say 'individual management methods' are the reason for success?. Something that worked for that team will same thing work for this team etc

    Over the years Davy managed 3 different teams winning things with them all. His methods seem too work. A lot of managerial movements in Ulster football with Rory Gallagher managing many different teams. Micko and Paidi in the past

    I think it is fair. I would say that it's more about the manager's personality rather than any 'methods' as such. Ruthless managers, by that I mean the sort of person you wouldn't want to cross, seem to get the best results. Think Brian Cody, Micko, Jim McGuinness. Same is true in other sports I think.

    Micko seems a very friendly down to earth guy

    Cody, Loughnane and John Maughan seem scary devillike men

    It could also be argued that Davy and Micko were very astute in the jobs they took and the timing of taking them.

    Davys years in Waterford deff build up his experience even with some greats coming to the end of the road but could still go the yards (****ing Tipp and Kilkenny teams of those years were amazing)

    Micko really for the love of the game, didnt he win everything with Kerry and Kildare were a strong enough prospect when he took over. Laois, Wicklow and Clare all jobs that were to try and build a reputation for the game in that county

    Cody outside Kilkenny would be interesting but never going to happen

    Loughnane in Galway as high profile as it was at the time failed

    In soccer it is down to the budget a manager has. You might get the odd outlier, but only for short period. Note it is wages paid not transfer fees that is important. Looking at Dublin footballers I would say the same is true in GAA, managers have only a small influence if not backed up by plenty of cash.
