Fermanagh very confident big crowd expected,Ricey factor,be good day out for the fans.

Seems to be a real vibe in Fermanagh this year. And unlike the Ulster Championship, they have won the McKenna Cu four-times previously.

Rory looking to put a marker down tommorrow, almost 4 months training done at this stage, playing very strong team throughout and expect 13/14 starters tommorrow. be a difficult game but if Fermanagh canít beat this Tyrone team with that preparation at home, then there is little hope for them comes summer

Jeez, by the sounds of things lads I should be getting down to the bookies to throw a few pounds on this new super power Fermanagh. Doesn't sound like you boys are giving tyrone much of a chance in this game the way you are building up the erne men.

Remember Brian McGuigan being shoved into the fence/sidelines and having to come off injured. Barry Owens had a tremendous game.

http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/mpapps/pagetools/print/news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/northern_ireland/gaelic_games/4706538.stm

Fermanagh handed Tyrone their second defeat in seven days by deservedly winning 0-9 to 0-8 at Enniskillen.
Sean Cavanagh and Stephen O'Neill hit early points for Tyrone but the Red Hands then suffered a blow when Brian McGuigan was forced off by injury.

Fermanagh levelled at 0-4 apiece but Tyrone led 0-6 to 0-4 at the break.

Points from Brewster, Shane McDermott, Shane Goan and Ciaran O'Reilly put Fermanagh two ahead and they held on to maintain their 100 per cent record.

Fermanagh seemed to have more appetite for the game and their attitude was typified by the performances of defenders Barry Owens and Shane McDermott while O'Reilly, James Sherry and Ryan Keenan had fine games in attack.

Cavanagh and O'Neill scored the opening two points of the game but two O'Reilly scores and a Sherry effort put Fermanagh ahead.

Two O'Neill points restored Tyrone's lead before Sherry levelled the game again with Fermanagh's four point.

Tyrone finished the half the stronger thanks to a Cavanagh free and a Martin Penrose point which was nearly a goal with Fermanagh goalkeeper Chris O'Brien superbly deflecting the shot over the bar.

Amazingly, Tyrone were held scoreless for the opening 27 minutes of the second half as Fermanagh dominated possession.

They took the lead in the 50th minute when Shane Goan swung over a great point and Ciaran O'Reilly then added to the Erne lead.

O'Neill cut Fermanagh's lead to the minimum but Mark Little's point then restored Fermanagh's two-point advantage.

Tyrone's Peter Donnelly scored the final point of the match but Fermanagh were not to be denied.

It's still a fairly strong side but it's still early doors and Fermanagh would look to be a fair bit ahead of us in preparation.

I'd also imagine we won't be dropping any players off the panel after the McKenna Cup. We've lost Cavanagh, the two McMahons and Cahir McCullagh from last year's side, Munroe also left the panel at the end of the league last year so that's 5 players less than last year's squad and we only have the four new faces in.

By all accounts Tyrone still playing that defensive sh*te doesnt bode well for the real money in the months ahead.

+ 44 so far in 4 games. Conditions brutal for football today. Maybe u should go to a game and judge for yourself rather than rely on second hand info. That's if your even from Tyrone.

Pretty good prediction. Tbh I'd have fancied tyrone to win by 8-10 points but maybe fermanagh had a more established team on.
