It was a great relief to get out of Healy Park with a win last night. Tyrone finished very strong. Credit the Dubs though. They have been in that situation so many times before and have always come out on the right side of the result - surely the mark of a great team.

Fair dues to the good people of Omagh. They gave the Dublin supporters a great welcome.

Most older country IRA men were smugglers before they were IRA so hard brexit suits the hard men well. Add people to animals, white dust an daysel; while NI sits on the edge of recession right now. Border poll 2022 and all the other EU citizens Asians Africans and Hispanics including the Tyrone East Timorese with vote for United Ireland and 200k empire loyalists including the castle Catholics will flee Good riddance

Bite the bullet and go professional. The best players in the country, irrespective of where their from, need to have access to the highest levels of the game. That will never happen with the county system. I don't know of any other sport where your address dictates what you can potentially achieve. There are some very good footballers in smaller counties who have to be wondering why they bother, and there's nothing they can do about it. We do our best hyping up what we have, but in some cases it's like asking Fleetwood to compete with a Manchester United and then some critics saying well they need to up their game. It's all got very boring

really quality performance, just lacked abit of cutting edge, didn’t make dublin work as hard for scores as we had to. the effort physicality could not be questioned, top class and brought dublin to the edge but no cigar. the difference was a sloppy “lucky” goal, 2 bad wides and a few bad calls by the ref. burns, m donnelly, meyler, harte where really quality and morgan’s lockouts was on point 2 or 3 where outrageous, and i didn’t think i would ever say that, should be great momentum to the donegal game and get a result
Yeah that's it in a nutshell. Great performance and a great day out. If mcnamme is out we might see hampsey move Back with McShane or richy moving to the middle,with Bradley coming in. I'd love to see both Brennan and Bradley on as would give us more of scoring threat in the bigger games. All to play for in 2 weeks. Glad the players proved they are more than capable of delerving on the big day

Not a cheerleader for Evans but he got us to Div 1 as well.
He parked the bus as they say v Tyrone 2013 and Mayowestros 2014 and we only lost by a kick of a ball to them, not by 18 and 23 points.
After Sligo/Fermanagh 2015 he was always a goner.
We've  got to 3 CFs in a row by beating NY, Leitrim, Sligo, Leitrim and Leitrim.
No matter who is Manager for 2019 needs a kick out strategy, defensive plan, give some impression of knowing what they are doing in team selections etc.
We need a S&C guru, fitness and defensive coaches and the € to pay for them.
We probably also need to be dumped into the Qualifiers and go on the road to make or break us.

The Rossies have clogged up the Don v Ros thread with their arguments. Any Donegal men have an update on Gallagher? He looked to have done his shoulder/collar bone. Came off very gingerly. He'd be a big miss for you.

I haven't heard anything yet. It looked like his elbow I thought - reply seemed to show it being hyper-extended. Either way it certainly doesn't look good. He was in a sling after coming off.

Massive miss for us for sure; he was on track for an all-star should we have made the semis.

Excellent performance from the Dubs, they played really enjoyable and intelligent football. Tyrone (cliche alert) did ask a some questions, however,  complaining about the ref's performance  is missing in total  the essential elements of why Dublin won, with relative ease.

Correct, I think on a full size pitch Dublin would’ve won by 10 or so.

Pitch regulation size stupid comment

But if the comment was changed from “full sized” to “bigger” the comment would be telling.

With an extra 4 metres of width Tyrone would need much more fitness to compete. That fitness didn’t look there yesterday

...but Dublin wilted near the end and nearly lost it.  A team can seem tired when they're chasing the game and the other team is playing keep ball. To sustain that and finish strong shows serious fitness, especially playing so many weekends on the trot. 

I actually think a tighter pitch doesn't suit either of these teams and Harte alluded to that when he said he'd prefer to play in Croke Park.

End of the road for Tyrone 2018 here. They just don’t perform in Ballybofey, that’s going back generations.

Good luck Donegal in the All-Ireland semi-final.

Tell Mickey John Forbes  (a real tough man!)  that!!! near riot after he tapped a Donegal man that famous day 29 June1973 (surprize surprize the ref missed it).
 Donegal were going to withdraw to the fastness of Connacht to hell out of Ulster after that interesting game.

Always remember one of my early county championship matches watching as a boy was the day in Dungannon Ardboe took umbrage at something and it ended a 100 man all in with Arboe suspended for 2 years as I remember it.
