    Cobh Ramblers are on the lookout for a new manager ?

    Anyone have suggestions on potential names for this position?

    Anthony Wolfe temporary basis could continue!

    The fact that Cobh Wanderers are having a good season with all the ex-Cobh Ramblers players and the poor start for Ramblers says it all..........................?

    Ya Hendo's name has been thrown around but with the current state of the club it's doubtfully many locals will support the team.....

    If Henderson came back in though, would that instill any sort of belief from locals given his record at Cobh previously? He built a quality team down there last time out and won a league title for them in 07.

    Surely that'd, at least initially, bring a bit of a crowd back in the gate?

    Hard to say really,people in Cobh prefer like everyone to see locals playing.If it's a team from mostly outside town and their doing well then you will get people in the turn styles but when it's a team of non locals getting hammered like we have now then nobody will support them.Might as well have a local team in there.

    define local? do they have to be from the town, or will players from somewhere in Cork do?

    I agree with el pietro, the lack of locals (I.e living on the great island) is a convenient excuse for some. The players playing Msl chose to go. There will always be some excuse for some people to choose not to attend games

    We have to listen to the same crap down here. No locals in the starting line up in the final home game of last season yet over 2k at it. You can't tell me we'd get even half that if it was an all local team battling to avoid bottom spot. Any excuse.

    It's a fact amoung people from Cobh that they love to see their own doing well,the same everywhere really.If you have a team with a core from Cobh people will have a bit more interest,it just doesn't sit well when you have a team getting beat every week with nobody local on the team sheet.A mix from Cobh/Cork would be ideal but of coarse you can't force this on the manager or insist on locals to go to the club and give up their weekends for a mature football.

    But that's a team that were going for promotion no? I'm saying if a team is getting hammered week in week out and nobody knows who they are then it makes more sense to have a local team in there.I go to games but am losing interest fast,I know Brenda Frahill is local but I know nobody else-if I knew a few more I'd go regardless as I'd support someone I knew for giving up his time for the club.

    On top of this 'excuse' the current board has been amature in its dealings since they've come in....

    Harps had an all local side a few years ago that ended up having one of the worst seasons in the history of the club and yet attendances were down to one of the worst ever for the club too. Local side means nothing once I'm afraid.

    Cobh is a pretty small town. You can't expect to fill a team from just the town. Not if you have any chance of winning. And if you had 11 players born within a couple hundred yards of the ground then you'd be getting battered every week. No one will watch a team that loses every week.

    I suppose you'd want a couple of players like Davin O'Neill mixed in but fielding a team of players mostly from Cobh is unrealistic.

    I saw Cobh a few times last year and they looked like a decent side, naive but with quality. A decent manager who could organise them would have them doing alright in the first division. I haven't been down yet this season so I don't know if thats still the case.
