Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

Fergal Logan a free run at it with a team of Dooher, Holmes, McMahon and Pete Donnelly back in according to radio Ulster.

See quote and onwards. Most of us saw it as a good move. What's the plans next year?

There seems to be a vibe from the Tyrone players about feeling a lot freer this year. They're careful not to slight Mickey but it's fairly obvious this year's management decision was spot on by Tyrone. Mickey did 90% of the spadework though. It was good to see that he was in Armagh on Sat night.

Morgan - 30
McNamee - 30
Harte - 30
M. Donnelly - 30
T. McCann - 30
Sludden - 29
McCurry - 28


Any concerns about any of the lads calling it a day? There's a big fall off once lads hit 30, I doubt too many of them will have more than a handful of seasons and that's really the spine of the team. If we could get another few years of them and then you'd be looking at the minors from this year starting to break through we could be OK.

Didn't realise they were that young.

I think you can justify Tyrone getting 1-7 but I don't think they'll do that. Unless they move a couple of them to the HF line.

Bogue is possibly the best GAA journalist out there.

Worst final defeat ever. Mayo defeated themselves. They played the occasion, not the match.

I can only rationalise it by thinking that Mayo have Stockholm Syndrome and their identity is too attached to losing finals. This is one they should never have lost. They had the winning of that match and then some. They should have been winning it by seven or eight points.

All this has to stop. It's too painful for the rest of the country, never mind Mayo.

Tyrone are the most average team to win an All-Ireland for a loooong time.

What in the name of God are you on about. Tyrone were the far better team. This glorification of Mayo needs to stop. It really does. They were very average.
Mayo were comfortably the better team for the first 25 minutes and butchered two gilt edged goal chances. Again Mayo totally dominated the first 25 minutes of the second half and proceeded to butcher pretty much every chance they got, which was a lot. Tyrone got two sucker punch goals. Harte's mark was the key play in staving off a comeback.

Tyrone won because they made few mistakes. Mayo's game was a tale of utter butchery.

They may throw their collective hats at it now.

You're usually not far off, but that's a bit off.

Game was played on Tyrone's terms for about 60 mins of the 77.

What I liked about this was that the management kept McKenna on, knowing he was probably good for one moment. Same as McCurry in the semi. Under Harte, they'd have been hooked.

Excellent performances from McKernan, Hampsey, Harte and Sludden. Two mids had their best game.

Feel for Mayo people.

Another thing that stood out from the semi v Kerry was that McCurry was being dominated by O'Sullivan. Under Harte, McCurry would have been pulled shortly after halftime. The current management stood by him, even after the black card, and it's arguable that his late points were the most crucial.
I’m not sure saying that he was being dominated by O’Sullivan is a fair assessment. He was being targeted for double & triple marking. He was usually able to beat O’Sullivan to the ball but was meeting Kerry men (generally their midfielders) coming the other way. They were able to impose their physicality on him and he was goosed.

Oh he was totally dominated by O'Sullivan. Many balls were 1-on-1. The Kerry man produced a masterclass and it was class to witness.

MS, from a Monaghan POV, did you think Tyrone were there for the taking in the 2nd half in the Ulster Final?

The one thing that worries me is our scoring.

On the 69th minute, we were on 1-10. That's fairly low. Kerry had 0-15. Had that Canavan shot not fallen to McShane, we were looking at a very disappointing return. Almost choking level.

What of the 2003 Final, where we prevailed with 0-12, only, and hardly could be described as choking?

It all depends, I'd say, and depending on how frugal the respective defences are, it might be surprising as to what will be actually necessary.

That's true but two different games completely.

I just worry that of that 1-10 on 69 mins, 0-5 was scored by the defence. I hope it was down to underrated Kerry defending and not a drying up of attacking prowess. It sorta started in the 2nd half v Monaghan. It worries me.

Is the AOS thing about underperforming in Croke in a final being overplayed? Has he had some decent finals and are people expecting too much?

First they build a victory platform, now they bring back O'Connor for a winners medal.
