The landscape has changed dramatically. Its no longer the same squad and we're no longer in with a shout if getting to an AI final. The team that competed for in 2 semi's were the ones that were requesting someone with AI's which seemed logical as we needed an extra step to get us past where we had been.
Its obvious that what we need is someone who could rebuild from the wreckage thats been left. The squad is young and very talented but its obvious that a balance of experience is lacking. Someone who could bring this together should be acceptable to all ... and not the number of AI's he has in his pocket.
Putting anyone from the Leinster winning squad in charge would be a lunatic move. Having one or two them involved in the setup would be a great idea.
Personally i think Anthony Cunningham would be very good. The Galway lads ran him out unfairly in an effort to distract from their own embarrassment of shitting the bed. They made it look like he was holding them back but what have they done since under new managment?
JBM would also be a good shout. Lads have a chip on their shoulders on here about him and his celebrations in the league semi (or was it the qtr) 2 years ago but he always appeared to be an intelligent hurling person from what i could see.
As to the argument about having someone from Dublin in charge... i couldn't give a sh1te if an alien was in charge once we were winning Leinsters and AI's.
