If Tyrone can't beat Carlow...

Exactly. There can be no excuses - that's not arrogance to Carlow. I do expect them to make this game pretty tight with Tyrone to pull away in the end.

Tyrone have had their scare, for a team that considers themselves on the top table - this should be a routine run of the mill 5 pt + win. Tyrone tactics unfortunately might make this one tougher than it has to be.

Carlow will be no pushovers,  would be worth going just to see Poachers' actions!!  He's a cute hoor, !

Carlow will be very tough to beat. 15 men behind the ball is tough to break down. they are an upcoming team. it will be a bad match to watch. unless tyrone get a good start and build a lead. then they can play ball out around the middle and force Carlow to come out of their defensive 15 men set up and chase the game which will free up space for tyrone.

a big start is very important for both teams here. If Carlow get an early lead of 3 or 4 points tyrone will struggle to come back and win that.

The onus on Tyrone is to make Carlow play on Tyrone terms - ie Tyrone need to get ahead early and make them chase a game they are set up to do the exact opposite. If Carlow get a lead, Tyrone are in for a war of attrition, something which it won't be lost on Carlow, Tyrone struggle doing these days.

Tyrone Team V Carlow?:
McGeary McNamee Hampsey
McKernan Burns McCann
Cavanagh McNulty
Meyler Harte Mattie
McShane Richie D McAliskey

No Sludden? Meyler half back for McCann (whether hes suspended or not) and Sludden in number 10. Hes not playing great but we need to let him play himself into form again, otherwise thats pretty much how Id see the starting 15 too. Interesting to see if Morgan gets a recall. Also Id expect McNulty to get called ashore at half time for McClure.

He's injured, i'm told.

The Russian team have collectively run further in their 2 matches than any other team in the competition has done in any other game. . .

The running distances are nothing extraordinary as modern football goes. Liverpool and Man City would regluarly cover greater distances and their average over the course of a premier league season would be on par with what Russia have done so far in the world cup. It must be noted that I believe that football is rife with doping.

Absolutely no doubt, however the substances that are in the game with that much money are probably 20/30 years off even being tested. EPO and the likes just wouldn't cut it anymore.

8/13 to beat Australia.

Won't be rushing to the bookies on those odds - it's an evens game for both sides I feel. Genia will be a miss to the Wallbies.

Been to Budapest recently on a stag, weather was class - wasn't keen on the city to be honest. Bit run down - but hard to get rid of money at the same time, for all intents and purposes a decent enough spot for a mess of a stag - but if you want to go and have a bit of a look about, activities etc....probably not the best spot. Prague beats it out of the gate.

Aye youre right Fuzzman poor Sean suffered badly for not making the move. If hed have gone to Australia he would have his own accountancy business, gig on the Sunday game and a book coming out. Oh wait hang on a minute. . .

How do you know his dad never forgave Harte? Sounds like fabricated nonsense.

If you go to any club game and stand anywhere within 50 metres you'll know his dad isn't exactly a forgiving type.

Who's in at clonoe then, it's the players who seem to call the shots when everything is not going well,clonoe,coalisland and galbally god only knows who'll go next?

Clonoe management situation wasn't led by players. Unfortunately other circumstances dictated that one.

Tyrone have lodged an objection to the Ulster council after the result of the u20 game. Doubt much will come of it. It would cause Ulster a major headache replaying the game.

Embarrasing stuff from the county board. Tyrone were beat. Move on.

Rumours of change of management in Galbally

Who is the manager and who is the replacement? That would be 3 division 1 teams that have changed management mid season. Club players think they are premier league players these days.

In fairness coalisland more than vindicated with their decision.  Not only are we undefeated since the change but it's cost us nothing as well....

Coalisland have started playing to the potential of their squad since the change of management. I think they were bottom of the league. Says a lot about their players who hold back depending on the management. I thought you play for the badge.

Obviously a manager can set up the team differently but the radical progress would suggest the Coalisland players were almost on strike.

Uneasy truce in Coalisland. Expect the same problems to creep back - a serious relegation panic is now averted.

McCurry is in America right now - so he'll not be back this year anyway.

I'd be happy enough to see Kyle back and it takes balls for both manager and player to ask a player back and for it to happen.
There were rumours around Navan last Sat that McCurry WAS back.

I'm just happy to see Mickey even admit that we're far too short of proper forwards and whilst its too easy to take the "aul man's" attitude of "Ach sure he's no good and neither his he", we need to have some middling forwards to at least bring on from the bench rather than a lorry load of half backs to fit in anywhere.

Its so easy to sit in the crowd and pick holes in players games, especially forwards but I've also saw the same players get a wee boost and suddenly their confidence is sky high. Think of Mugsy before his 2005 wonder goal and how he was then after it. Harry Loughran might have got a tap in but I'd like to see a bit more of him the next day with Brennan and Sparky still out. A FF line of Skeet, Loughran and Richie would certainly allow for a lot more direct ball in which leads to a lot more variation in our tactics which the whole country know now what to expect from us.

From what I believe, Mickey doesn't bother to give these lads a call. That's left up to Gavin Devlin.

Carlow   V   Tyrone
Cavan   V   Down
Sligo           V   Armagh
Waterford   V   Monaghan
Tipperary   V   Mayo
Kildare   V   Longford
Offaly   V   Clare
Leitrim   V   Louth

Whats the verdict on the draw.  Based on saturday nothing can be taken for granted but it could have been a lot worse.  Fixtures to be played weekend of June 23/24.

Not being funny, but Carlow will be relishing this. Tyrone need to up their game so much - Carlow will be licking their lips at chance of taking what would be a major, major scalp.
