    Herd a rumour from a few men in Tyrone that the county board have Jim as top of their list to replace Harte. I think Jim in Tyrone would be an unbelievable appointment for them......dont see Jim going there though. Or back to GAA management either for the foreseeable future.

    Would not be surprised if Peter canavan has his eye on the job

    Fergal Logan id say. He managed Tyrone U21 to All Ireland in 2015. Canavan ruled himself out yesterday on Sky with his son being involved.

    McGuinness said recently he wants to get a role back in soccer.

    I know Malachy ORourke took on a club team in derry recently, surely he would be of interest to Tyrone?

    I seen this priced on boylesports and fergal Lohan was 1 to 4 which makes it look like it’s already a done deal.

    McGuinnness won’t go to Tyrone. Not a hope. He mentioned he has been in with Donegal ally recently.

    I think they are the only county he’d manage.

    Tyrone would be unlikely to look for a outside manager regardless.

    Malachy O Rourke while being a Fermanagh man, would probably have been the nearest as an outsider had he been available. He lives in Ballygawley, but managing Glenn in Derry next year

    Malachy O Rourke would be a good choice, he did a great job with Monaghan and is a proven manager at inter county level.

    He would have been, if he was available. He was confirmed as Glenn Watty Graham Manager a few weeks ago. It will be interesting if he can push them on with Conor Glass back. They won 4 in a row Ulster Minor club a few years ago

    I wonder could he combine that, and be part of a potential backroom team with Tyrone

    If Malachy O Rourke was offered the Tyrone job i couldn't see him turning it down over some club job.

    He already said he doesnt want it due to his son and son-in-law being involved already.

    I’d be stunned of McGuinness was offered it or took it. Like, have you read his book? No live lost for Tyrone.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,951 ✭✭✭ PressRun


    Every time a high profile managerial job comes up, McGuinness gets mentioned as a front runner and it never happens. I don't see him managing anyone else tbh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,010 ✭✭✭ theoneeyedman


    Fergal Logan is the name I'm hearing, unless some internal politics act against him.

    I think St Peter will be cute enough to let someone else come in and take over from Harte.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,665 ✭✭✭ Bonniedog


    I think some people are under-estimating the mutual dislike between Tyrone and Donegal!

    It was Harte's time to go, but have to say some of stuff said about him was mean-spirited. He was crucial to Tyrone's great run, and arguably they would not have done it without him.

    Eaten bread, and all that ...

    He also mentioned he has another son on the minors and three, I think he said three, nephews coming through as well with the minors. He said he’d hope all of them would feature for the seniors.

    I’m sure he’s also making his few pound with punditry on both Sky & BBC and also doing work with some clubs.

    If he was offered the job, with the squad they have, commutable from Donegal....he would definitely have think about it.

    And with the squad tyrone have and a different management team I think they'd be well capable in the next few years

    Lol, next year’s Ulster championship, Jimmy McGuinness leading his Tyrone team into battle against Donegal.

    [can’t see it happening somehow]


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,167 ✭✭✭ doc_17


    By the way, nobody in Donegal calls him Jimmy as far as I know.
