GAA Discussion / Re: Warm Weather Training Camps
March 07, 2024, 08:27:12 AM
Quote from: thewobbler on March 06, 2024, 09:24:59 PMI don't imagine a warm weather training camp would could much more than doing the same thing in Ireland. And there's the plus point of fewer opportunities to bail from some of the camp when they're a flight away from their family / club / work.

That said, it's still a load of old tosh that makes no team more or less likely to fulfil their potential.
I dont know about that.  Armagh went from also rans to champions after a trip to La Manga..Yes... they went back to being also rans but it still worked albeit just that one time...

Quote from: An Watcher on February 27, 2024, 07:09:13 PMHow do we know mcglennan isn't up to it if he hasn't had a go

He joined in 2022 season I believe & don't even think he has started a McKenna cup game? He obviously isn't up to it as he would have featured by now.
Knows the drills, has the gear, likely useful for training drills.

Very unfair lads.


Unbelievable that. How many appearances did he make for Eglish last year? The lad has had no football at all, just returning after a very lengthy lay off, and people are judging him in 2 ten minute substitute appearances against Derry when the game was gone, and Galway - when we were chasing the game
I agree. Lad has been injured, hasnt had a chance yet.

Quote from: Sportacus on February 26, 2024, 08:03:48 PMAs far as I can see the Ulster Council can't produce any evidence of a funding commitment.  Did Chris Heaton Harris tell them something over a scone, sure that's worth nothing with a Tory Minister.

Where is the requirement that Ulster GAA must provide this? If they've been told it's being funded why the need to tell us?
No need, although it is central to the whole issue and if they had something concrete, it wouldn't be hard to say what the commitment actually was - a letter, an email, a conversation???.

But the point I'm actually making is that some people are boldly saying it 'will' be built, but how can you be so sure the UK government will stump up the missing £100+ million?
As don't think they can afford not to. It'll pay back multiples of that, and the optics will be extremely bad otherwise
I think if they renege a border poll should be called that afternoon...

Quote from: southtyronegael on February 25, 2024, 10:09:26 AMVery heartened by that second  half. Team had shape,aggression, moved the ball much quicker especially with  the foot. Needs to be our template  going forward.never want to see another  half of football like the first half, particularly our attack.

Very unfair to blame our attack in the first half when the build up is slow & ponderous.
The difference in the second half with quicker ball to the forward line and more pace in the middle third was key.
The most sensible comment I have read here in a while.  We started the game with a forward line full of midfielders and half backs, even then we failed to supply them quick. We finished with a forward line and we supplied them quick.  Quick is the most underused shout in gaelic football these days...
Was a fan... Cant listen to them anymore.  Loved them for a long time, but cant cope with them anymore.  I can live with or without them...   
Is Jimmy Mc Guinness a realistic option...
Malachi Cush and Tyrone Tom were pioneers of the reality TV era in Tyrone and acquitted themselves and their county well.

Quote from: Goals_Will_Come on February 09, 2024, 12:13:09 PMAn Ulster University side backboned by Tyrone players have qualified for the Sigerson Cup final with a 1-13 to 0-11 victory over Maynooth tonight. Darragh and Ruairi Canavan, Ciaran Daly, Conor Cush, Peter Og McCartan, Oisin McCann and Steve Donaghy started for Ulster University while Dara Curran, Adam Donaghy, Eoin Montgomery, James Quinn, Harry Morgan and second-half sub Danny Fullerton were named on the bench.

Oisin McCann for me stood out. Surely worth a go on the County panel, has the physical size and is full of talent. If he got a run with the county I think he would turn into a top player.
I remain unconvinced by Conor Cush, I am not sure if he is cut out for the top level.
They are only cubs so I wouldnt be writing anyone off.  Mc Cann has potential, I thought he was great in some club games this year but not as impressive in the club championship.  They all need time..

Quote from: DuffleKing on February 11, 2024, 01:24:25 PMYes - UUJ have previously won the competition but Ulster University is a new entity combining Magee, Coleraine and maybe a few other campuses.
The Poly covers all bases..

Quote from: ClubScene13 on February 11, 2024, 03:59:57 PMEmbarrassing from BBCSNI from start to finish here.
Maybe its the move from St Patricks day for the MacRory cup but whole BBC presentation and build up was poor.  Having been so good in the past at previewing and covering the final, how and why has the ball been dropped. This used to be a live TV event..

Quote from: ONeill on December 09, 2023, 11:28:44 PMGames in the east of the county should be played in the summer to eliminate flooding during more stressful times like Spring and Autumn.
or they should drain  Lough Neagh so the water doesn't back up...
Well done to Tyrone Championship... Till next year Buddy!

Such a talent, such a person and such a tragedy for you all to deal with in Kildress... Please just know how much the clubs in Tyrone and the wider GAA family are thinking of your people these dark days.. May Matty rest in peace...
