A few musings.

We were very good in the first half but Monaghan lacked intensity and Tyrone players had time to run and break lines. The Monaghan game plan was all about stopping McCurry. Two men marshalling him at all times. Problem is it left space for others. Even though McCurry was well marked he kept them busy with intelligent runs and game play.

Monaghan of course were a different animal in 2nd half. Pushing up and squeezing Tyrone. Tyrone didn't have many answers, but kicking it long was an option that nearly provided a few goal chances. This will be good practice for what Kerry will do.

The Goalkeeping one is interesting. Morgan and Beggan occupying the space was a great tactic. Morgan for the most part had a very good game, but missing two very similar 45s was criminal. His KOs were for the most part very good and helped to keep ball well at the end to see out the game.
Frees. Anything in McCurry range left or right he should take. Donnelly and McShane missed two very scoreable frees. At this level those are critical. That's 4 points that we can't afford to really give up.

McShane obviously rusty. Felt he was just too casual. He needs to sharpen up.
McGeary had another great game, Logan and Dooher have obviously turned him into a footballer.
Meyler gets through lots of work, but again his footballing skills are lacking. Some poor decisions and passes. He must offer more.
Sludden was brilliant. A real attacking HB with great energy.
Two MFs did well and Tyrone probably edged that battle.
McCurry was fantastic. Marked within an inch of his life he kept them constantly guessing. A real Rolls Royce player.
McKenna and Harte were both quiet. Hoping we get more out of them next time.

There is a lot of positives. Winning an Ulster in their 1st year is a great achievement for this management team. Beat the two other best sides on the way.
They did play a lot of good football. I've enjoyed watching them evolve and get better. Will we win an AI? Probably not but we're playing with a bit more jizz and it's great change from the previous regime.

McCurry missed a very scoreable free too yesterday and has missed them in the past also.

i hope you're not referring to his effort which was from outside the 45 out of the hands on his weaker side.. as that definitely wasn't a scoreable one and if only Morgan had his shooting boots on that would've been perfect range for what should've been his 3rd point, stick Beggan in that Tyrone team and we're guaranteed another 3/4 points a game

McKenna was awful on Saturday in my opinion, he just didn't look like he knew what to do or what his role was. would love to see Canavan come in vs Kerry, can see him doing damage, there's 1 position up for grabs already with Michael o'neill definitely (finally) losing his place. would love to see Richie in around midfield as i feel like we are lacking experience in there, definitely a few positions up for grabs in the semi final, managers have some thinking to do now, game is there to be won if we perform to our capabilities and frustrate Kerry

Finally Scruffy Oneill seems to have lost his spot. Has been holding Tyrone back past couple of years. Player with zero talent and awareness. Good riddance.

was just before half time i think, outside 45 just on the right hand side, hit it high & wide, definitely not scoreable for a forward out of the hands, but scoreable for Morgan if he had more confidence

OK well I am more referring to those frees in and around the D on both sides. If it is on the edge of his range or way out on the left then No, but those 14 -30 meter frees are meat and drink to him.

Just watched the game back. MC Geary's tackling has improved beyond belief. In fact all Tyrone players tackled with great discipline most of the time. Credit to the Tyrone coaches for that. Even great to watch Mattie do his motm interview on rte.

Darren McCurry wasn't cooking the country up that year... I have faith in big Dazzler :-* :-* :-*

2018 was strange as no one expected anything other than a Dublin win. Ironically tyrone done very well for the first 15 mins but once Dublin for the goal around the 20 min mark it was game over. I still have the image of tryone being down by about 4-6 points in the 2nd half with all Tyrone players in their own half bar Colm Cavanagh standing on the half way line willing tyrone to push forward to no avail.

The game changed on a poor kickout from Morgan. Dublin goaled and the match was over. That's the reality, one mistake and you are finished.

Yes and the one man who came out and thumped the ball into the Dublin area was Morgan   It what was needed at that time and he obviously was frustrated his teammates lack of urgency

Yip. When tyrone did pump the ball in colm I think scored 1-1 from it. Tyrone didn't do it enough. For me that was ehe I I decided mickey needed to go. Poor negative game plan, defending a loss is ridiculous. If you are losing in the final 15 mins you may as well go all out attack. Getting beat by 1 point or 16 points is still the same

Agreed. Harte seemed to have lost that "all or nothing" tool from his arsenal in his later years. It was almost like his courage dwindled with every passing year.
