On a serious note i heard last week that club Tyrone have lost 25/30% of Irish based club Tyrone members in the last 12 months..... from a personal experience the amount of people calling for change in the management front is alarming....

Without club Tyrone garvaghey never would exist, the income brought in each year is needed for the upkeep of it and if you say theyíre down up to 30% thatís a big blow

Could we see Garvaghey as a white elephant or will the cunty board be red out in time to avoid this

I see you red Spillane's arcticle yesterday!
Dont know if it could be a "white elephant", the facilities are being used all the time, sorry i shud reword that, the demand for the facilites would be high but pitches constantly closed or else the Lord Mayor doesnt want anyone else on it!


Is Garvaghy paying for its self??? i would think it has to subsidised via Club Tyrone.....

Did every club not have to pay £5k per year for three years when first built?

Then they have the cheek to charge clubs to use it.

Designed in the shape of celtic T-have you ever heard of such BS? Im sure the birds in the sky love the design but the players  detest the place.

One of our counties largest main contractors were heavily involved in the garvaghey scheme and strongly advised them not to proceed with the T option. they were then asked to no longer be involved in the design and it was approved by others with no construction experience.


Surely thats not true!!

I see a lot of talk on Twitter about this Thailand holiday... has it came down to people slagging players now outside of football as well as what happens on the field? Maybe Iím naive to something that happened on the holiday was there a falling out between players?

Not that i know of...or to be honest do i care.... lads will be lads....big game v Monaghan coming up in 2 weeks...give 2 weeks to get things sorted....

Big spending UUJ being outshone by St Marys again who seem to have a lot of players on the panel,who are club players only.

Dont really understand this UUJ enigma they always seem to have a serious panel from all arts and parts and rarely do they succeed....

Full range of questions, most of them have been lingering about for a year or 2 now, Getting to the All Ireland final last year glossed over a few burning issues in my mind anyway, Mayo not making the super 8's and avoiding Kerry in the group section left us is a a position we would have accepted to reach reach the All Ireland Final having to beat one none Ulster team on the way.... are we improving as a team??? are we getting the most out of the players we have available to us??? are we trying to adopt to the new rules??? Dont know on how many occasions yesterday our last line of defence was a forward!!! Mayo's second goal our last defender was Conall McCann we looked all over the place in was shocking.... we hand pass the ball in the defensive area of the field while the opposition filter back and black off most avenues of potential attacks....it is so slow and predictable it is bordering on absolute stupidity to persist with it.... is the management the problem?? is the players the problem??? or we not just good enough??? maybe a mixture of all 3....personally at this stage Mickey is not improving players individually and possibly we need a new voice/system/set-up just to freshen things up a little.... My fear is he stays on too long( we may be there already) he undoes all the good work and greatness he brought to us albeit it seems a longtime ago at this stage....

Typical McKenna cup....UUJ done ok for long periods... very poor standard of a game in my opinion... but was a chance to give players game time who wont be playing that much a run out i suppose.....

My opinion is....referee was brutal to Fianna for whole of first half.... he was a wee bit better towards them second half... i never seen any spitting incidents or heard them mentioned at the game, too it was mentioned on here.... if their was so many verbals insults why did referee not deal with it at the time instead of picking out one person???

 Referee out of his depth... i would rather the Ulster council would hold their hands up and say we have analysed the referee and he aided the situation on and off the field!!!

Local Expert when are you going to pay your Fianna Membership?
O
Somebody get these pair a room or set up their own thread

Unless they are the same sad person just looking attention

Get from me.


Club boi! Wondering are you the famous twitter handle vod boi? Something about pizza ?
More importantly are your boys giving the enemy a guard of honour on Sunday ?


When we won championship in 2013 our next league game was v Fianna in Stewartstown there was no Guard off honour, We beat Fianna in league Final 2012 and their management team and a handfull of players did not wait for the presentation so i would presume they would hardly expect us to form a guard off honour on sunday...

Negative on the name there, not even from Clonoe but if Bigtogs is correct in what he says, you's cant really expect the same respect back if you's didnt do it back then

Can anyone confirm if Bigtogs is correct??

Was that leage game the year Fianna went unbeaten only to lose the playoff final?? (And before you start, Im pretty sure on here I have said the league title shouldve been granted to Coalisland for winning the most games, Playoffs were only money rackets for the CB)


Yes it was and personally i agree team finished top of the league wins it..... On the Guard of honour i would rather my club respected the tradition no matter who the opposition is...

Dont really want to get into it. But u can maybe guess considering we accommodated them to change match as didnt suit their players next weekend.

It's a bit raw now.

I was under the impression both teams wanted to change the fixture? We only had 2 subs this evening and both were used for injured players before another one of our players picked up a black card early in the 2nd half meaning we had nobody to put on as a replacement. Kildress should have kicked on and finished the job off but poor shooting let them down.

No Stewartstown requested match change.

Kildress only had 3 eligible subs and one of those was carrying a significant injury... Kildress could of had done better alright had the heads been right but It leaves a very sour taste in our mouths. I think its a lesson we have learned and therell be people out there with very little sympathy for what happened.

All the best in the promotion playoffs.


Stewartstown requested change.. Kildress agreed....Stewartstown won...Kildress not happy....Am i missing something?
