Quote from: God14 on March 02, 2024, 08:46:09 PMDerry folk will be pondering Hartes selection this evening. He effectively raised the white flag on Friday morning when news of a weakened team started to filter through. Dublin went from odds against to odds on with the bookmakers.A repeat League final will be a conundrum for Mickey with Donegal waiting alrite. Big mis-step 2nite. The first seeds of doubt sewn.
Rory G would never have done that, he'd have certainly started his strongest side and roared and kicked every ball on the sideline
Harte is a canny operator for sure, but his latter tenure with Tyrone was conservative and risk averse football. Tonight really resonated.
What advantage have Derry gained from lying down? Have they learnt much? I dunno. I doubt they've learnt anything at all
They will still in all likelihood have to play Dublin again in the league final, close to a crucial Ulster championship tie V Donegal. Does he play a shadow side again with an eye on Donegal?
With hindsight, how wise was it to rush Conor Glass and the other 2 Glen lads to play Kerry 6 days after winning an all Ireland final. Harte got lucky in that none of them picked up an injury
I believe Derry need to win their next league game, otherwise they've thrown form and momentum away, and league points in Division 1 are not straight forward
