Colm O'Rourke: Red Hand prospects hinging on Harte's crisis of faith
With three games to go in the league before clubs get to see their players again, the picture is becoming somewhat clearer. The momentum associated with new managers is evident with Armagh and Down, who will be formidable forces in Ulster this year.
On the other hand, Joe Kernan has found that his new life in Galway is something less than a bed of roses. And if Michael Meehan does not recover quickly, it could get a whole lot worse.
The argument continues then: does a manager make a good team or does a good team make a manager? The diplomatic answer, and probably the right one, is that it is a bit of both, although without a good management set-up, a group of players certainly won't make it -- however talented they may be.
