White to the pole, red to the pole is Derry!!
White to the Pole - Tyrone
Red to the Pole - Cork
Red & white horizontal - Derry  :P

If the All-Ireland was back in August, schools wouldn't be able to experience this build-up excitement.

Having a debate here with family. Should the first colour on the tyrone flag be white and red or red and white.

White and Red. White to the pole.
I am prepared to die on this hill.

A lot of players who have taken plenty of flack here and were immense today. No bad performances really. Beside Donnelly, but again he didn't seem quite right.

You owe an apology to a pit of those players,  they have proved you wrong. Peter Harte is an immense player.

I understand they don't get the cup home due to covid. But is there anything happening for a homecoming tonight?

I backed the players. Mickey Harte was the problem. Suck it up!

"The nephew" as you used to call him, had an outstanding day yesterday.

To be fair there were plenty of times in the past when Petey didn't play well and should have been taken off but never was. Interesting thing is all players are playing better this year than ever before, think it shows mickey and his system didnt work.

Peter Harte probably had one of his best ever years. Delighted for him. No uncle Mickey breathing down his neck. Alot of guys on here were saying Mickey was getting the best out of average players. Looks like that theory has been blown out of the f**king water!

The debate about Mickey on this thread in recent years was intense and at times pretty unpleasant, due mainly to a few posters who made the thing personal. That was totally unnecessary and out of order. I argued the past few years that Mickey, for all his massive achievements, had been there too long and that his extremely conservative style and micro managing of the team was stifling them.

I didn't expect things to turn so quickly on his departure, but despite their limited time with the players, it was obvious that Logan and Dooher and co were letting them play with more freedom in attack and getting more creative players up the field. I think it's inconceivable that Tyrone under Mickey in recent times would have scored 5 goals in an All Ireland semi and final against Kerry and Mayo, or indeed that if they were ahead late on that he would be encouraging them to keep attacking and be sending on attackers as subs. We can only be thankful he didn't get his extra year as Tyrone wouldn't be All Ireland champions today if he had.

All that said, he also deserves great credit for the conditioning and preparation of those players over the years and for keeping Tyrone at the top table. By taking on what he left and providing a more bold approach, the new management team provided success quicker than probably any of us believed possible. With a proper season next year and hopefully McShane and Canavan bedded in, and hopefully McKenna with a more defined role, and a year or two still left in Petey and Mattie, this team can still be better.

That's for the future though. Right now, just want to thank the players and everyone else who made this possible and wish you all the best with the celebrations 🍾.
