Has really added finishing to his playbook. Shooting has definitely improved in last year compared to when he first broke through. Also perfect for the current style of play.

He must have been practicing hard at the shooting, good for him.

It's his work rate and attitude I like but his skill level has gone up a notch.

Every 5 minutes a Tyronie needs to be told just how good their team is.

As far as I know the person who started the thread isn't a Tyrone man.
That was never a square ball!!

The thing about Tiarnan is he has worked incredibly hard to get to where he is now. I'm open to correction here but there wasn't much talk of him as a nailed on senior star when he was coming through underage. In fact he came in very much under the radar.

He had a very good conversation with Wooly Parkinson on the GAA hour after the Ulster final and talked about hairgate. Still eats him up today. It was a silly silly action and, as Dinny points out, he's come on a long way since.

MS, the only thing more frequent than our need to have the ego stroked is your ability to fire an insult our way ;)

Has redeemed himself since the hair gate episode and plays the game the right way. Anyone is capable of doing stupid things in the heat of the moment but McCann has gone about things the proper way since and is a very good footballer.

He's been outstanding this year and should be a shoe in for an all star. Fair improvement from that diving incident.

Something a Monaghan fan need not worry about in the near future.

Something to be commended. With serial divers like Cavanagh around him he could easily have taken a wrong turn instead of shaking it off and pushing on to be the best footballer he can be.

Shoe in for an all star.

Would rate him up there and maybe even above Lee Keegan from a half back perspective

Every 5 mintues Main Street thinks about Tyrone and sobs for a while before entering a discussion board to vent!  ;D

Tee McCann outstanding player - I for one never thought he would be one to come trough from youth ranks never mind be such a talent - hard work pays!
