Of course the Offaly county board has form for taking odd decisions, and any democratic process can never be presumed to be a guaranteed win, but I would be genuinely stunned if the same management team wasn't asked to return en masse.

It's far more likely that Paul Rouse himself looks at the situation and decides that he's not in a position to do it to the very high standards he would set for himself. After all, he has a lecturing job in UCD, and while it's not as simple as saying that he has very little to do when the undergrads are away in the summer, it's fair to say he's a lot quieter than he would be in October or November, when he'd be getting preparations for 2019 underway. This came up at the perfect time for him.

Like most Offaly supporters, I truly hope he does stay on for another year at the very least. It would be a huge boost to everyone - but if it doesn't happen, I'll be amazed if it's the county board that say no.


Ah feck it, can’t he take a career break? :?: :| :cry:

Says a lot about the way he'd approach the job that I'd say that he'd nearly have to consider it. That won't put food on the table for his family though.

Word has it that he, as well as the rest of the management team asked for nothing with regard to €. Thus enabling a Strength and Conditioning coach to be put in place.

Also, Colm Quinn, Cathal Daly and more helped out for nothing as well.

It’s all lies about Paul Rouse apparently. Pat Nolan said on twitter that Tommy Byrne hasn’t spoken to him yet about taking over full time
