he hasn't played enough minutes to win it, so you would imagine Oisin Mullen will get it.

Mullin missed the semi final and had a poor final, got badly caught out for the McShane goal.

Two of Mayo's games in Connacht were turkey shoots against Div 4 Sligo and Leitrim. He had a pretty poor year, an excellent player though.

Canavan had three fleeting appearances.

Tierney probably the most deserving winner, hit 1-03 against Roscommon to put them in the Connacht final. May have been the MOTM.

As I said on the other thread, the YFOTY award is outdated, very few players are playing senior intercounty football under the age of 21 now and certainly very few are having any sort of meaningful impact.

Generally players are not at the physical level required until their early 20s. When was the last 19/20 year old we had burst on the scene having a meaningful impact? Was it McCurry back in 2012?

You are correct about Mullen this year but with McGeary expected to win footballer of the year they aren't going to give Tyrone the 2 awards, and they aren't going to give young player to a losing provincial finalist, so they will pacify Mayo with the young player award I feel.

From reading the paper this morn I was surprised to see that Packie McConnell never won an All Star not to mention never even been nominated for one.  Crazy considering the save that basically won them the All ireland in 08.

He only played the final that year. John Devine had a bereavement so didn't play.

On another note, what do people make of Paddy Tally going to work with Kerry?

Is Tally based in Galbally or Belfast?

You'd need to be getting 50k+ a year to make that in anyways tolerable with the amount of commuting and work involved. It would be a minimum 10 hr round trip to go down to Kerry and back.

Must be serious money involved for Tally to take it? Is he going to pack the lecturing in for a year? You'd imagine he will have to.

Brilliant move for him, would be great to get him back to a Tyrone set up again, a legend in the county!

Could be lecturing from home maybe?

He's changed his mailing address to Rathlin Island apparently. Some mileage there!  ;)

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but has anyone got a high res photo of Tyrone prior to the All Ireland Final or a good one after the final?
Someone has asked me to get them a framed poster!

First result on Google images. Looks like it might be made for a poster oneills or somebody are selling. Maybe not the most original if that's what you're looking.

Edit here's a good one bit might not work for a poster:

 
If you right click and save as you should get these at original high resolution.
