Nothing Cunningham does is in the good managers handbook. He is completely out of his depth as a manager of a 1A team. Like all bad managers he tries to bring the thing to the level he can cope with.
If he managed any other county, (I.e one without a hurling inferiority complex) he would have been sacked six months ago. We might be saved in 1A because we have good hurlers. If they are good enough to overcome bad management I don’t know.
Just a thought, but I wonder how much Cunningham is being paid for all this? Because as value for money goes, we are not getting it.
With Galway probably staying in 1B, getting out of it next year is now harder. We could be looking at a huge setback for Dublin hurling yet the DCC has stupidly set their stall out by saying ‘we don’t sack managers’ . The work of the last 10 years is in danger now because we have a guy in a job that is beyond him. He is a very decent guy I am sure, bit I would love if he went home this evening and thought about what was really good for Dublin hurling and he acted accordingly.
We are barely in the top 10 now in hurling, yet have the hurlers to be top 4. The inaction of the DCC on this is incredible.
