Why are we annoyed with these men leaving? We don't play a game based on scoring forwards. There are 3 places up for grabs. Darragh, ruairi and mcurry/ mcshane.  Our half forward line in last year's championship were all half backs essentially.  We are a defense minded team running the ball from deep. Meyler and Mc Geary are class workers and tacklers but what scoring threat do they posess - point or two a game. Compare that to Dublin Kerry and Mayo.

Mc Shanes confidence must be on the floor. Looked brilliant in the mc kenna cup, plays against a gael force breeze and dooher pulls him off at half time?? We had nothing to hit inside in the second half. Also to be an inside forward and have to watch Meyler hog the ball with putting inside his last resort must be awful.

Pulled him off as he was shocking. Good mc kenna cup he scored few frees against Derry that was the height of it. He wasn't only one there quite a few players that don't cut the mustard at that level and some have too many miles on tank. Club season will be early again looking at that

He was no worse than the rest of them. He might have scored the missed frees in the second half. Is he not a better option than Matty. All this solo solo and turn back.

Errigal will get to an ulster final
Galbally will lose first round
Stewartstown will get to an AI final

Fancy a Galbally win, but they do need a massive game from Conor Quinn to curtail Eoin Bradley. If Bradley is kept quiet, i think Glenullin will struggle. However McNicholl in midfield is also very good, not actually sure who will pick him up, Enda McGarrity perhaps. Any particular reasons you feel the pearses will lose?

Agree with Stewartstown prediction, a final against Fossa is a long way out but definitely a real possibility.

Id be worried about Glenullin.  They have alot of experience and will cause this young Galbally team bother.

Itís the same every year with Galbally, theyíre the yoyo club of Tyrone. You would nearly think they get relegated from division 1 every year on purpose so they can go on to win the division 2 league or championship. Suppose itís good for morale.

Bit like Edendork, only their Moral has to deal with players wanting to leave the club, infighting, bickering etc etc.

be interesting to see if this mgmt team stays on
I'm hearing crozier was only in for one year
serious money being paid out to a mgmt team, ludicrous,... and it will be a serious challenge for them to remain in senior in 2023 IMO

Nothing Positive to say?? You seen the value of a good Management team in the buildup to the game and the game itself.  Mc Curry spoke all week about how confident they were how Galbally are 'dogged' poor defence etc etc...Edendork were poor on the line - when the pressure came on they resorted to kicking aimless ball int the box.

Galbally were plagued with injuries all year and the still managed to finish 2nd in the League

Composed calm preformance from Galbally yesterday. We certainly didnt show that form all year but felt our matchups were spot on. Morris, Quinn and Rafferty defensively were exceptional holding Mc Curry to a point. Con had a massive game and single handedly kept them in touch but they will rue  the missed goal chances in the first half.

out of all the people at the ground the umpire at that far post was in the best position to make the decision whether it was a point or wide, and when you watch it again he was quite sure in his decision.
I donít agree, he was looking directly into the lights, the linesman was right behind it and cud see perfectly. Either way thatís football, Dromore done themselves proud and will be back. Honestly canít see past Errigal for the title now but you never know. Game was played on a good spirit and both teams came to play football which was refreshing, thought the game was a very high standard given the conditions. Tyrone are in a good place with the Canavans and Emmett
McNabb to call on for their forward line

Thought it looked like Dromore where intentionally leaving a bit on R Canavan any chance they got early on.... almost like instructed to maybe?

What do you expect Dromore to do - Stand back and let them at it. Did you watch the treatment Shane Walsh got in the Dublin Final

The introduction of the forward and defensive mark IMO has reduced the level of skill in the game and deprived us with the opportunity to see evasive forward play, forwards taking defenders on and likewise defenders defending 1 on 1. It largely came about because of the blanket defenses.  Think of Canavan's goal v Kerry in 05.  If Mulligan calls the mark we don't get to see Canavan's incredible finish.  Midfield mark promotes high fielding so no issue with that.

Predictions for IFC this weekend? Could Tattryeagh cause an upset against massive favourites Galbally?

Yes - Galbally down a lot of men.  Edendork still the team to beat.

Kildress actually fought til the end, it was a tight first half and had Kildressí shot that rattled the crossbar went in, who knows.

Edendork always had serious firepower though, their shooting was impeccable. Very dangerous team and well drilled.

It was a great game of football to watch for the neutral, some of the best play Iíve seen, both teams direct kicking it in, there were a lot of wides kicked - scoreline could have been higher for both!

Was always going to be a tough ask for Kildress but theyíre a very young, inexperienced team. Edendork would be my favourite to win the competition, above galbally and Eglish.

Would agree with majority of this.

Edendork where very powerful around midfield and completely dominated us in that area where we are very weak. We needed a strong start to second half but it was Edendork that got it and that killed us in a way. in the first two attacks of the 2nd half we gave away frees in the middle of the park but instead of moving back from the kicker we stupidly gave up yards on the frees and brought them into Niall Morgan range who was nailing them all. CRIMINAL!

Also one of the things I was impressed by was that players I hadn't heard from Edendork where very good to add to the usual big names. I think they will win it.

Its a hard blow for the lads to be defeated by that margin but its been a good season for us with a young team and new manager implementing a new style play.

I think they will likely win it too particularly if they continue to play in good conditions like last night but if they play on a day in which the weather is like last Sunday then it is a big leveller. Rock might have a say in things though as Eglish (going by their performance against Clogher) might be content enough to be already promoted and Rock gave Edendork a right good game in the championship 2 years ago. On the other side of the draw I wasn't that impressed with Galbally but they should still have just enough to make the final.

Edendork have the intermediate wrapped up IMO. Eglish will run them close but its theres to lose at this stage.

Pomeroy should have been out of site at half time!! Galbally grew into the game. Dan Kerr hasnt kicked a ball in over a year and came of the bench to nail 2 great scores. Word also for Galbally full back Conor Quinn who was exceptional on burns.

Quinn has a bit about him for sure. Where has Kerr been? Injured or away?

Injuries all year.  Hopefully can get some sort of a run at it.
