Any word on how the training is going. Heard mcnulty was back

Fair play to Derry today. Deserved the win. Monaghan were slow in the first half although that was to do with Derrys good play. Thought the ref was a slight bit harsh on monaghan in the first half.

I would imagine the game against Donegal will be will be tight and cage for the first 20 mins or so. I would expect Derry to win it between 3-5points to spare

Game fizzled out and went flat the second half. Itís ironic that Donegal scored both goals from long hopeful miskicked balls into the square.

Good game though. Cavan were impressive and should do well in the Tailteann Cup. Donegal got a fright in the first half but they are so consistent.


Consistent? It was 2 lucky goals which won it for them. Overall thought Donegal were poor enough.

I presume he is talking about their tenth Ulster Final in 12 years, fourth in last five under Bonner.

5 ulster titles in that 12 year period. 2 ulster titles in 5 years under bonner and no AI semi final since 2015.

Bonner has a OK record but the only consistent I would say is the lack of progression for them outside of ulster

It must like the Tyrone Club championship most years sure, you're punch drunk by the time you navigate Ulster's championship waters, very little left in the tank then

Well lets compare then. In the same 12 year period tyrone won 4 ulster's, got to an 3 xAI semi final and 2x final including winning the AI.

Can't be that punch drunk if their record is far superior t Donegal 😂

Canavan remembers Conor Lane flashed a red card for exactly the same type of foul on McBrearty years ago agin Tyrone, "no consistency"  he says.
Tyrone grudges are timeless.

Or he is showing up the inconsistency which every gaa fan knows

Jesus there are some amount of kerry cynical tackles going unpunished here.

Would say dooher is a tough love type of manager. Nothing wrong with that.

Any word on the general feeling in the camp?

Some lads are very quick to pull the plug on players. The simple fact is that we wouldn't have won the All Ireland without McShane and less than 9 months later we want him banished from the team and are making crude comments about the "package" he got for staying. I would also say, that unless we get him firing again then we have no chance of winning the All Ireland again. I may be in the minority here but I actually thought he wasn't the worst on Sunday and at least looked like he was unsettling the Derry gameplan, which is more than most achieved. I was surprised he got hooked. The championship has come around very quickly this year and a few lads have yet to find form, this time last year we had lads wanting to get rid of Kieran McGeary and he ended up player of the year. And although i do admit we have a few lads who need to improve (and quickly), maybe this month's preparation before the qualifier isn't a bad thing - we are no further away from an All Ireland quarter final than we were last week.

That's a fair point however he has been given a lot of chances this year without finding any kind of form. Football is a business in a certain way and he was given a right bit to stay, not saying its right or wrong but its a fact. This is where we will miss the likes of Bradley as he could have came on and attached the defence.

I said at the start of the year tyrone will struggle if mcshane or McCurry have off days.

Wouldnt really say mcshane improved on the last game, he got 2 soft enough frees.

Still plenty of time to turn it around and meeting the likes of armagh in the qualifiers might be the kick up the arse that is needed.

Ultimately if tyrone fall short this year its not a big issue after the wonderful year last year. Managment are new and need time.

Cathal McFlashinthepan

Had a wonder season and now back to lacklustre level.

Ridiculous comment. Missed the guts of 18 months with a serious injury that heís lucky he recovered from. Iím sure a few Tyrone boys know they havenít been up to standard this season but just remember the feeling these same people brought us in September. Some people have short memories and it seems they almost want the county to fail so they can have a go at players.

Hope I'm wrong but I think he was limited enough fpr inter county before that wonder season and is back to that. I don't think we'll ever see that type of form from him again and he shouldn't get to live off it forever.

I would agree to a certain extent. He needs to earn the huge package he got for staying instead of going to oz rules.

This is no defense of tyrones very poor season but I wonder if the condensed season is making it even more difficult for reining champions to defend their title?

Anyone know how long this shortened season is going on  for?

All Ireland finals are middle 2 weekends in July

Sorry I meant is this the new normal or is the AI season going back to September

A bad day at the office. The discipline is the main worry, which is strange as last year discipline was really good. We know the players can play. I expect a response in the next match.

Not sure we can just put that down to a bad day at the office. I would have hoped that had Kennedy not been sent off that Tyrone would have lifted their game as it went on. Ultimately that red followed by the penalty meant it was a mammoth task. However, there was a still a general lack of leadership and direction after that and Tyrone never threatened to get back into it.

There were 3 key things to work on after last year. Get McShane firing on all cylinders as a starter, find a role where we see the best of McKenna, and also get Canavan in as playmaker. Of those three, we only made progress through the league with Canavan. Ironically, he was the only one of the three who didn't start on Sunday. On top of that, only Meyler and Kilpatrick of the breakthrough men of last season have consistently been at a high level so far this season.

It is possible that the hammering on Sunday will focus minds and with a nice draw that Tyrone can pick up momentum and do damage as the summer unfolds. But at this stage it looks unlikely.
Only one man to blame for this one, had enough chances this year to get firing. Mccurry kept his levels at the same standard if not better

McShane needs dropped to the bench. Had enough chances this year to prove himself and failed to do so. Keep him as an impact sub. Last year he scored vital scores coming off the bench but he never really found form since that 1 good season for tyrone a few years ago. Appreciate he was out for a long time but he just does seem to be able to be a main target man at the minute.

Gallagherís behaviour on the sideline at weekend was crazy
Guy was off his head - even when the game was all over with 15 mins to go - he was still out of control

Looked liked to many cups of coffee.... kept spitting on the hands too as if he was going to contest a kick out! :L

The only more annoying thing that happened was the section of Tyrone Supporters who decided to boo the Derry team off the pitch at HT.... it was embarrassing and the Derry team seem to really enjoy it (and rightly so)
.
Hate that kind of crap although are you sure they weren't booing tyrone ll

They don't appear to be guys that can keep a squad happy looking at them.

Would say dooher is a fair but hard manager. If the lads don't want to fully commit they shouldn't be there. Seem to a few lads on that team with an ego which I don't think dooher would appreciate.
