« on: Today at 09:47:47 AM »
decent game tonight. conan grugan and shay mc guigan the standouts in first half. c o donnell man of the match though, kicked some great scores in second half and finished with 7 i think. mulgrew was quiet and ended up headbuttin meyler. ronan o neill quiet too but scored a gem from tight angle in second half. omagh big contenders on tonights evidence.

Why were you there?

Gaffer, I have no love for STG but you just seem to come on this board and troll him !!! Every post is in response to a STG post.
Get a f**king life and grow up.

He's just trolling the troll who trolls Mickey harte.

What's the quality like on the Armagh TV? Might save me a trip to the Athletic Grounds!

Connolly is an awful referee as bad as I have come across. As said he's not biased just absolutely inept.

In fairness is there a club in the county that hasn't benefitted from a transfer at some stage or another?

Agree with a previous poster that McCarron is done although I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised to see McCrory, McNamee and McCarron line out in the first round next year!

Mark Bradley had to be the most frustrated and annoyed out of all the players on Sunday. Up against 3 Dublin defenders and then of course called ashore when understandably he could make no impact against them. All those months training to play in a full house at Croker and his role is to play an impossible position that no footballer past or present could perform in. I'd say he's happy to be back playing for Killyclogher just to get a touch of the ball!

I don't know where I sit on the Harte issue now. It's maybe time for a change I just don't know!

A change of approach may happen but what will it inevitably achieve?

I don't think it will have us much closer to winning an All Ireland than today. Tyrone were physically and athletically dominated by Dublin yesterday.

Are there really any players outside the current squad that will make that much of an impact. I'm sure there will be calls for the likes of Coney and McNulty to be used as a target man type forward but both are badly lacking in the mobility needed for the game today. Have we really any better man markers than what played today in the county? Possibly young McKernan will get a call up today but realistically he's about 3 or 4 years of gym work off being able to man mark one of the Dublin lads yesterday.

It took yesterday to dawn on me how far ahead Dublin are of everyone else. Mayo have been the only side who look like they can match them physically and athletically in the past few years.

That's the bottom line - there are very few other players in the county that are capable of coming into that squad (not just man markers) and as you say it takes a few years to get up to intercounty level unless you are exceptional like O'Callaghan for the Dubs. A lot of our players were shown up yesterday as being decent county players but way short of that elite level. I think a change in approach would get us to the same stage as this year as standards are poor elsewhere but we are absolutely miles off the Dubs. That 2nd choice forward line they showed on the Sunday game last night was frightening.

It would give you a chance. What's the point in playing horrible, losing football? You've got good footballers, M Donnelly, Harte and McCann are players any team would want and you've got some very good, albeit small, forwards. Let them play football and see where it gets you.

Look at Kerry, they got spooked by the roasting their full back line got in the drawn game against Mayo and dropped one of the best forwards in Ireland. Instead of playing a sweeper they should have backed their forwards to score more than Mayo's. Had they done so who knows what would have happened. Good football teams like Tyrone need to show confidence in themselves and try to outscore their opponents. It may not win them an All Ireland but at least they'd go out on their shields and their fans can enjoy watching the journey.

That's what I'm saying - playing a different style would still have got us to an All Ireland semi final this year and will do next year as well in my opinion. I agree wholeheartedly with your last sentence. Yesterday was painful to watch.

McGregor was given the first round on all 3 scorecards, the 2nd round by one judge otherwise every other round was given to Mayweather.

I'd say the only change will be McClure in for McCann in MF. McNulty direct replacement for McShane who is reported to have dislocated the shoulder.

McShane wasn't in the last squad of 26
