i have no idea who would be the best appointment for next manager - but what you want is somebody who respects Dublin Hurling and wants to get the best for Dublin Hurling and is capable of doing it. That is why Daly worked and Cunningham didnt.
the main problem with Dublin Hurling right now is that we are the only top level Hurling County where Football is the biggest Gaelic Game. Up till now this has given the other top level counties a big advantage in numbers at the kids levels starting from 5 years old upwards. They can afford to lose a lot of kids along the way and be sure that those who survive are the best they can get.
That is slowly changing in Dublin with the numbers of kids taking up a hurl, but as has been said, the numbers leaving the hurl down in their late teens and taking up the football is a massive problem which simply does not exist with our competitors. You change that and you change the landscape. Until that changes we will bob along at QF stages we may even get to an odd final with an exceptional team, but that will not stroke the desires of good players who may also be good enough to get onto a minor or under 21 football panel with hopes of being regular Sam Maguire contenders (which because of the super 8's I think we will be in perpetuity).
