They are kicking in quicker ball to McCurry..it's only really this year that he has played consistently in the championship.  He use to play well on the soft ground of February and March

Indeed mccurry is playing brilliant and winning his own ball but the ball was kicked in plenty under harte to mcshane. Plenty of mccurrys scores come from coming of a player as well. No doubt players like mccurry have had a new lease of life and I think that's why everyone was glad to see a change buts it's pretty much the same system. We really struggled in the second half for ideas and it was Peter Donnelly who rushed to make the changes when they were on top in the second half as dooher stood in a trance on the sideline which would be quite concerning

Yes we kicked the ball in a bit under harte but no where near as frequent. McCurry scored 17 points in 2 games would never have happened under mickey. Generally they are alot more postive and looking to move forward. The system isn't in place yet as they only have been in charge for a few games but you can see what they are trying to do.

Bit concerning that but it may be that dooher doesn't want to be seen to be the mad one shouting at the side lines. I have been watching tyrone football for more than I care to admit  but have no idea why but tyrone can never seem to kick on in the 2nd half when they are leading at half time. It somehow doesn't seem to suit them. That and the fact they find goals hard to come by are 2 things that need addressed if they want to challenge in future.

Tyrone were being overrated after beating a 14 man Donegal, I think today's performance is a truer reflection on where they are at. They don't have a free taker and their bench is nowhere near as good as has been made out. Monaghan left that behind them today and I can see Kerry comfortably beating Tyrone in the semi-final.
Tyrone had 5 players ruled out due to covid today, and Mcshane, Canavan and Munroe only coming back after longer term injuries. I think when they have everyone available, their squad is one of their strengths

Who were the 5 missing players?

Which out of those 5 do you think Kerry would be most concerned about?

Fair play to Tyrone who since the Donegal game never got to train together as a full squad.
Mcnamee was only out of isolation on Friday, was a close contact, so looked a big ragged on Saturday.

Well 4 of them are defenders so I doubt kerry would be making special plans for any of them. Regardless, take 5 player sout of any IC squad and it will weaken them to some degree. There is every chance Burns, Brennan and McCann  could all have started against monaghan if available.

So you are saying Doohers demeanour on the line is the same as Mickey Hartes

Kerry are a few years ahead of Tyrone at the minute

In what way? That Tyrone side to me would appear to be longer on the road than Kerry who have much more scope for improvement than Tyrone.

I would say in terms that kerry have been working on a system for a number of years where as tyrone are trying to play a new system after years upon years of playing a certain negative way. Interesting article from Niall Morgan Irish news, gives an insight into mickeys my way attitude.

Do you watch Kerry at all. Kerry working on a system for a number of years lol ffs weren’t they bt by Cork last season trying to play defensively. A new system this year in contrast to last season’s dismal defensive tripe. Tyrone similar to their typical game except letting in some early ball

Could be interesting if we sent a lot of Covid suspects for a weeks holiday to kerry 😂

Pity McShane, Canavan and McKenna weren't all in full flow and this could have been a proper gun fight.
Could our free kicks and lack of goals cost us again against one of the big three?
