ROY CURTIS – “JIMMY WAS CHARISMATIC LEADER, BUT NO GAA GREAT”

first_imgJim McGuinness can’t be considered a GAA great according to Roy Curtis.Award winning Sports Journalist Roy Curtis has aimed a final parting shot at Jim McGuinness, following his decision on Friday night to step down after four-years at the helm. However, Sunday World Sports Editor Curtis has been critical of McGuinness throughout his tenure and yesterday claimed he can never be considered as a GAA great.McGuinness completely transformed Donegal’s fortunes when he took over in 2010, and became the most successful manager in Donegal GAA history, winning three Ulster titles and one All-Ireland final. He stepped down after the defeat to Kerry a fortnight ago in the All-Ireland final, and won 20 out of his 24 championship matches in charge of Donegal, but according to Curtis he can’t be considered as a GAA great.Curtis wrote, “His achievements while substantial, do not place him among the top ten in the pantheon of managerial giants.“Brian Cody has won TEN All-Ireland’s, McGuinnes one, yet the latter is more often presented as the sort of figure to whom temples are constructed.“McGuinness was a fine coach, a contrary control-freak, a man who always seemed to this observer – just a little to fond of the image others cultivated for him. “McGuinness was a charismatic leader who found a way to the Promised Land, who made his people fulfilled.“But an all-time great, no, not when he cannot even be regarded as the outstanding leader of his generation.ROY CURTIS – “JIMMY WAS CHARISMATIC LEADER, BUT NO GAA GREAT” was last modified: October 6th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAJimmy McGuinnessnewsRoy CurtisSportlast_img read more

5 reasons Kevin Durant should heed Reggie Miller’s advice, and 1 reason he should not

first_imgReggie Miller recently gave some advice to the Warriors’ Kevin Durant.Durant isn’t going to like it, given that Miller invoked a certain 6-letter word. That’s right: “Knicks.”Durant has expressed his exasperation over the fanciful buzz that has him leaving the Warriors for the Knicks next summer. The subject is so irksome to KD that he iced reporters for more than a week, and then, when he finally sat down with them, asked them to kindly “grow up.”There’s something amusing about a 7-foot …last_img

But what led to the La Salle’s downfall was its inability to communicate on the defensive end especially in the waning seconds, where Thirdy Ravena and Isaac Go connected for the game-sealing bucket in the final 10.4 seconds of the game. “We didn’t communicate that much inside the court, while Ateneo had great defense and execution. We think they had a better communication inside the court than us.”Melecio, however, isn’t putting too much thought on the defeat, noting that the Archers can still bounce back and extend the series to a deciding Game 3.“It’s better to lose in Game 1,” he said. “But we need to bounce back and adjust our execution against Ateneo.
