Quote from: clarshack on April 21, 2024, 05:13:27 PMAnother example of Tyrone being refereed differently again. How can one be a yellow card and the other black?

Did you see the whole incident or just what we seen on the telly?
To be fair the BBC could not find why there was 1 black and 1 yellow appeared bizzarre, a big call that impacted on the game. Do you know why?

Hampsey pulled the Caavan lad down they showed it after the game it was very clear!

Quote from: Armagh18 on April 21, 2024, 09:47:13 PMTyrone and Donegal an interesting one, Donegal will surely not allow the Canavans and McCurry freedom of the park like Cavan did. And Donegal have better forwards than Cavan. Full credit to Cavan for dragging themselves back into that.

Can't see Tyrone getting near Donegal especially given extra time today.

Quote from: RedHand88 on April 20, 2024, 11:59:45 PMDerry were not serious All Ireland contenders ffs. They are at a level below Kerry/Dublin, same as Armagh/Mayo/Galway/Tyrone/Donegal.

A few facts:
They beat Clare and Cork to get to AISFs the last 2 years.
Kerry played sh1te against them last year and still bate them.
They won the league final against Dublin reserves and believed the hype.

I also really think the new structure hurts teams in Derrys position. 4(?) weeks of no championship football before potentially playing Dublin or Kerry.

My prediction: they'll get through the group by beating the guff but will go out at the quarter final stage to a bigger team. Questions will remain over Harte but he will get to stay and we will see the same next year, only a bit worse.

True though they were being mooted with Dublin and Kerry as top 3. That league 'win' (penalty shootout) was very overstated and hyped. Harte got left behind in managing a long time ago. Hadn't beat Dublin, Kerry or Mayo in the championship 2009-2020. I don't think that would
have happened to Rory Gallagher today.

Yeah something like that wouldn't happen with a Rory Gallagher managed team

That championship match was 2017 he'd brought them on a long way since that.. as for a league game irrelevant sure Tyrone got hammered in the league by Kerry in 2021 and took Sam up the road a few months later.
Mickey can't handle the big championship games... not in years...

Great man for the McKenna cups though! #champion #warratrophy

What Tyrone wouldn't give for a McKenna cup.... A 4 year drought!!

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on April 21, 2024, 01:10:27 AMStill think we issues up front. If McGuigan is held or off his game, the other lads can't seem to pick it up. Murray was good last day, wouldn't knew he was there the day. Glass was poor, but there were a half dozen even worse than him. We just have to see where they go in a month's time. I rather see McAvoy at Full back and McKinless back in the center. And keep a more defensive set up, as under Gallagher, and play horses for courses. Certain teams you should know there style of plays and what suits. Donegal today, you had match their style, we played way too open.

We didn't play particularly well and scored 17 points... we hit a few short and wide but the problem was not with our attacking play it was MF and how we defended!

Quote from: yellowcard on April 20, 2024, 10:36:38 PMIt wasn't the defeat itself for Derry, it was more the nature of the defeat because whatever way you look at it that was a hammering.

Derry can still recover from that defeat because they have enough recovery time. But huge questions remain over Harte tactically because he was out manoeuvred yet again by Jimmy McGuinness. There was nothing overly surprising about Donegals defensive counter attack style but it was surprising that Derry seemed to have no plan how to break them down.

It's a good result for the remaining teams in Ulster now though as it opens the championship right up and Donegal, Tyrone and Armagh will all think they can win Ulster now tonight.

I actually think we broke them down fine we just got annihilated on the Donegal kickout and didn't get into our set defence quick enough.

Was it a tactical masterclass? They defended ferociously and went after the long kickouts it wasn't rocket science but they were absolutely the better team and good luck to them.

I think they will beat Tyrone or Cavan handily to set up a big game against Armagh. That game will have a lot more intensity than the Div2 league final!

Quote from: marty34 on April 20, 2024, 08:00:18 PMDonegal's day for sure. Were the better team on the evening.

But this day will soon be forgotten. Things move on. Derry will re-group and Donegal will move on. One game doesn't make a summer.

Derry will move on and are still a top team.

That also counts for the League Final. People on here were losing the run of themselves about a game Derry could not see out twice.

Who are these people? I didn't see anybody from Derry do that!

Did you not? Because I saw plenty!!

We're on a GAA discussion board with lots of Derry fans you'll obviously be able to show us plenty of examples??

??

I've said numerous times I'm happy enough for us to not challenge in Ulster. We were 100% played off the park today but I'm optimistic we'll regroup and do well in the Sam Maguire!

Quote from: Hound on April 20, 2024, 08:12:37 PMVery enjoyable game. Result not overly important in the big scheme, both will be in the last 8 when the big cup is on the line.

Lynch does that in every game (as do some others) so big kudos to McGuinness and Donegal for figuring out a plan to exploit it. But Derry will learn heaps from it.

Ridiculous from Canavan (who I usually like) in the after match comments implying Derry would have been better had they not make the league final. The key moments from that game were the Donegal goals, and Derry would not have played Lynch any differently had they not made the league final.

If they meet again in an AI quarter or semi, I'd have a very slight edge for Derry, as they wouldn't give those stupid goals away next time,  but Donegal will improve too so would be hard to call and could defo go either way.

I agree with all of this!

Quote from: Truthsayer on April 20, 2024, 08:19:52 PMDerry had crowned themselves All Ireland champions after league win... and this sort of nonsense this week:

Nope! Nobody in Derry was doing that ...

What's the point in winning 3 Ulsters in a row?

Plenty of time now to hit the Sam Maguire series running.

We'll see ye again in a few weeks lads! ;)

In all fairness the match shows up a number of issues for Derry. Lynch pressing kickouts is a no from now on and we need to get back to our meagre defensive system.

The biggest worry is we got absolutely cleaned at midfield on 50/50 balls. Basically they did to us what we did to Dublin.

The flaws are glaring and should be easy fixed so while I'm not happy with today I think we can turn it around.

Fair play to Donegal they had a plan defensively and went aggressively after long kickouts and knew we were vulnerable if we lost the ball there. I was at the Roscommon game and they had 2-3 chances to do the same and I thought Dublin would have exploited it. Fair play to Donegal they were able to.

Important few weeks ahead!

Game over!

Derry need a goal and Donegal don't look like conceding one. Fair play to Donegal!
