Title: Rossies v Tyrone Hyde Park 13th July 5pm.
Post by: giveballaghback on July 06, 2019, 11:11:29 PM
Only one winner here, Harte will be a loss but Tyrone would have to play as badly as Mayo and Galway did against ros before we have any chance in this one.

Was at the league game at Hyde Park in February. Roscommon were probably the better team that day and will prove quite difficult to overcome again next weekend.

You are making the critical error of comparing Tyrone in February with Tyrone in July!

I expect plenty of Rossie intinsity the next day
Cunningham takes underperforming teams, adds belief and workrate and
what happens after depends on the players.

Tyrone to appeal all three Peter Harte black cards
Mickey Harte: ‘I don’t think any of the three he got were anything close to a black card’

The sheet will be cleaned on appeal this week, sorry.  ;)

I expect Harte to play. He is some player. I would question why yesterdays black was not a trip which is a black card. He stuck his foot in front of Cavan players feet and knocked him over. It was needless, awkward, game was well won but still a trip. But I expect GAA will cave.

I'd expect Tyrone to overrun Roscommon at Croke Park but the fact that Roscommon have home advantage should be worth a few points.

We seem to have hit a run of form now so I'd be confident of a win. We beat Roscommon and Cork by 18 and 16 points respectively last year. I think both have improved, Roscommon look to have a much more solid defensive structure this year and Cox has been a great find for them, they also seem more equipped physically.

I think next week could be a real battle but hopefully we'll come out the right side of it.

I'd like to see us go with the same team once again, I think you can see the impact of Meyler since he has came back into the side. He really sets the ball rolling with his movement and work rate, definitely the most underrated player in the squad.

Is McCann injured? No sign of him yesterday. McAliskey also didn't get any minutes yesterday.

If that is a black card then it's really beyond a joke. You could scrutinize every foul where a player's leg clashes with the opponent and say Black Card.

Yes, there's that (and he didn't 'knock anyone over'), plus the fact that that particular ref let much, much worse go throughout that game.

Here is a little info on the new Hyde Park surface.


Quote

The rolls of playing turf are set to be sourced from "county turf" based in Scunthorpe Lincolnshire who are the same specialty turf farm which provides the turf to Croke Park.
It will be harvested, rolled up and transported to Ireland in temperature controlled trucks before being relaid on a prepared surface in Roscommon. At present no Irish company grows the particular blend of grass which Croke park officials, deem suitable for the playing of Gaelic Games.

I've seen it with my eyes and any county player will be the first to tell you that Croke Park plays faster than any other pitch.

Out of the three black cards yesterday's was the most deserved, imo. He was really silly going into the tackle like that at that stage of the game. However, the Sunday game showed the one v Longford today and that was never a black card. I'll say he'll be playing this Saturday.

What are Roscommon going to do? Play on Tyrone's terms like Kildare and Cavan or come up with something different. Those 2 teams had no idea how to cope with the defensive shield or try and pull Tyrone out of position. I expect that Cunningham will not be so stupid though it is still Roscommon and they had no idea at this stage last year!

Hard to see anything other than a Tyrone win but by a much narrower margin than last year. Rossies with home advantage and I think they look a better side this year anyway should close the gap

Roscommon deliver the same intensity as they did v Galway,Mayo then this game should be a competitive one, but if they are flat after a 4 week break then Tyrone will ease to victory

Tyrone held Cavan to 3 points in the first half. I think they have gone back to being very tough to break down and create good scoring chances. That can be very demoralising for most teams, especially when they get turned over and Tyrone pick off easy scores from distance. Look how many times McCurry was shooting from right up the middle from 30 or 40 yards.
A few years ago when the Dubs hammered us in the semi final, Sean Cavanagh and Co were saying Dublin are just at a different level and that they couldn't do much about it.
I think maybe there can be a similar gap between the next group of teams and the ones below that. Tyrone are playing quite differently now than how they did a few months ago.
They don't kick too many aimlessly hopeful high balls into McShane if he's for several players around him.

I wonder who the ref is?

To be fair I think Tyrone have been lucky in drawing Monaghan time and time again in the QFs and last year's SF. I don't think they would have progressed any further had they played Dublin, Mayo, Kerry, or Galway in any of those games.

Would the Mayo or Kerry of last year have gone and won a knockout game in Ballybofey to qualify for the semi finals?

Also Tyrone beat Monaghan who played Kerry of the park for long spells.

Not the Tyrone squad's (some of them anyway) finest hour.
Micky Harte has put the publicity if it to bed fairly quickly.
Certainly not helping the Ulster Council in reaching out etc.

Now maybe Arlene can concentrate on things like her party members supporting burning their neighbours' National flag and people being forced out of their homes by illegal organisations building illegal bonfires beside their houses, intimidation etc etc

Problem there is you are positing the GAA as the opposite of loyalist kulture. Which means when something like this happens you leave the GAA open to that sort of whataboutery.

GAA obviously don't expect so as it's general admission, find your own seat or spot on the terrace.
We can't have a Connacht Final because of turnstile issues etc and we're limited to 18,000. For the match against Laythrum all the H and S stuff was in full flow, allocated seats, separate entrances for stands and terraces etc. Attendance 8k.
Now for an AI Qtr Final it's all in and everyone for themselves.
If 18,001 turn up will the last lad be locked out?

I agree with you there Rossfan. I'm sure the Hyde would have held the crowd for the Mayo Galway game too, I know there was 19000 and something at it, but I've been to Hyde Park and there were bigger crowds. I dunno, we're not all 20 stone and 7 ft tall.

Can easily hold 23-25k under H&S guidelines. In fact that is what it was set for against Donegal last year. Would say 17-18k will be actual turnout.

Cavan/Tyrone official attendance was 11,258.
Anyway the Hyde can hold about 28,000 but due to turnstiles and narrow access to stand side etc has a H&S limit of around 18k.

They also have Kerry Mayo as general admission which should definitely close to sell out. However as a result of doing general admission they have to restrict the capacity down to something like 30/32,000 under health and safety. So Hyde park probably has a lower official capacity for this game than normal too. Would imagine there'll be a very big Roscommon support there?

The reason they gave in the article I saw for general admission in Killarney was because they couldn't accommodate all the season ticket holders in the stand.

Super 8 last year the attendances were pretty poor and so was atmosphere at some of the games

On the back of the last two performances we will be very confident, if we go in overconfident we could get a hop. Roscommon are more miserly this year, in the games against Mayo and Galway they conceded 0-17 and 0-12 respectively. They've hit goals in those games and not coughed up any so I think we need to go for the jugular from the off in this regard, get the early goal and put some doubts in their heads. If we stop Murtagh, Cox and Smith then I don't see where the Roscommon scores will come from. Our defending in the last two games has been very disciplined and cohesive, I thought there were a number of really soft frees awarded against us in the game at Newbridge which helped keep Kildare ticking over so would hope the referee doesn't try and appease the home support in that regard.

I think Tyrone by 4-7.

Post by: Redhand Santa on July 11, 2019, 10:38:49 AM
There is a sense of serious confidence coming out of Roscommon and rightly so. They've already knocked out Mayo (a team many would rank ahead of Tyrone) and Galway away from home. And they're coming back to Dr Hyde Park with the confidence of those wins and a title already won. And what makes them more dangerous is the fact they've already got this far in recent seasons so they'll in no way be satisfied with just winning a provincial title.

They are a very different team to the open nice footballing team Tyrone played last year. They play with a lot more intensity, physicality and are a lot more defensively minded at the back. Add in the form of Cox up front and you have a great blend there.

So this will be a big battle from Tyrone and they better be prepared for a real scrap and serious rise in intensity from recent weeks. Whoever wins this will be in pole position for a semi final spot, a really good game for both teams to look forward too.

I think Tyrone will have too much for Roscommon. But I think it'll be a tighter affair than some anticipate. There is no way we'll see the margins of last year. Think it will actually be a fairly good game of football. Roscommon coming into the game will be keen to show development from last year as I'm sure their performance was disappointing and I think they have ability there. Haven't seen much of them this year bar some highlights but certainly seem to be a harder unit than last year.
Just think Tyrone seem to have progressively improved since Donegal. But if Peter's ban isn't overturned then it could be a very close match. He's hugely important to the team and his loss so early in the Donegal game was a big impact on how that game panned out imo.

F*ck the begrudgers, great to have a few games over the next couple of weeks. Hon the super 8's.

Dry your eyes. Bogue has made a right p***k out of himself this week. A few lads singing a song about the b**tards of the black and tans from literally 100 years ago now that were sent to Ireland to murder and terrorise our people. If anyone is offended by a nationalist singing that song they can go f**k as far away off as possible.

Sean South is a song about an attack on an RUC barracks 40 years after the black and tans were disbanded. It's mental that this is an issue and anyone like Bogue or Sean Cavanagh who made a d**khead out of himself on several fronts in an article today can go shite up a tree.

Not sure. I wouldn't change much.

Forgot to add the funniest part of all this. Whoever runs the Tyrone twitter account clearly doesn't agree with Harte apologizing having liked this tweet.  ;D ;D

From what I've seen of them this year they've really come on. Playing big strong natural defenders in defense and look a lot fitter and better coached in that area. Cox is a huge addition to them too up top. Some of the points he's been taking are Stevie O'Neillesque.

I think this will be a lot closer than people expect and I wouldn't be surprised if Roscommon win it. The biggest weakness Roscommon have is at MF, they got cleaned out there against Mayo (and Galway to a lesser extent from what I saw) and still managed to win. If Tyrone push up on the kickouts, they will struggle but if Tyrone play more conservatively, Roscommon will win imo.

Good luck to the neighbours anyway

Living in hope more than expectation of a famous Ros win, but anyway.
Tyrone are a seasoned outfit, and know what it takes to get the job done at this stage of the championship.  We aren't at that level yet, but if we want to be official members of the Big Boys Club, we have to start claiming scalps at this level.  We seem to be a lot stronger than last year, and definitely more organized defensively, so at the very least I'd be confident that it won't end up a massacre like last year.
Winning Connacht as we did broke new ground for us this year, and the next step is get a win in the Super 8s.  As usual before a big game for Ros, emotions swing from Ger Loughnane's 'We're going to do it' to 'We're doomed, I tells you'.  Tyrone, as I said, are used to this.  We have to get used to doing this. 
Best of luck to the Rossies, and safe travel and welcome to Tyrone fans traveling.  Hope yez enjoy the hospitality, but know that there won't be much hospitality within the white lines of the Hyde- again hopefully!!
Providing it doesn't become a blowout as has happened Ros so often in the past, it should make for a mighty battle, with a lot of intriguing match-ups in prospect.  So much at stake for the winner, in that they can focus full attention on beating Cork for a semi-final berth- and that's far from a forgone conclusion, by the way, but it'd be nice not to be looking to beat Dublin to survive.

A Ros win would be up there with my happiest moments in sport- the only thing that would take the sheen off it would be a Cork win v the T1000s.

Best not think of that!!

Speaking of metaphysics and to invoke the great Tyrone man in your picture, as I said before playing against Tyrone's defensive system, particularly when a forward carries the ball into contact is akin to De Selby’s theory of reality as “a succession of static experiences each infinitely brief”.

I had all this worked out before. In 2017 Mayo broke the all time scoring record in a championship season. In 2018 Tyrone beat that record by a few points, but unfortunately Dublin also beat it that year, so as it stands Dublin have the highest scoring season of all time in 2018, Tyrone are second in 2018 and Mayo are in third in 2017.

In 2018 Tyrone beat that record by a few points, but unfortunately Dublin also beat it that year, so as it stands Dublin have the highest scoring season of all time in 2018, Tyrone are second in 2018 and Mayo are in third in 2017.

So statistically, Red hand is incorrect?

As the game gets closer I'm getting less confident as usual.
I think with the very clever and experienced Anthony Cunningham at the helm now, Roscommon will be a lo streetwise than they were at this stage last year.
It's one thing beating Div 1 teams in the spring time and early summer but I think the top teams seem to coast through the earlier rounds and focus getting to peak fitness and higher performance levels for mid July to August with a view to get into the Semis.
Many would say Tyrone got to a AI final last year with quite an easy run and the same could be said again last year as they made light work of Kildare and Cavan.
A home match to last years runners up is a huge opportunity for the Rossies to show their Connacht performances were flukes and if the intelligent Cunningham can learn from how not to play into Tyrone's defensive spider web they could indeed spring a surprise.
In recent games though Tyrone have had their game won at half time and with Colly Cavanagh back in the middle of the Web, means it's hard for teams to make come backs.
Cox at full forward will cause problems if given the right supply but Tyrone were particularly mean against Cavan and even let them take their short kick outs just so that they could flood the defence right away from restarts and not be caught by long kick outs over the top of the midfield.

I think it could be a tougher game than we might think but if Petey Harte can avoid the dreaded black card or worse then we should win.

As far as the numbers I had, yes.

2017 - Mayo = 17:164 (215 points) - 10 games
2018 - Tyrone = 17:164 (215 points) - 10 games
2018 - Dubs = 17:169 (220 points) - 8 games

So joint second highest ever championship score. Dubs average score is higher but they racked up unreal scores in the three Leinster games that year.

Interestingly Tyrone have potentially eleven games to play this year if they make the final which will be the most ever in a championship season.  We're also 29 points ahead of the score total we had this time last year before the super 8 started so if Tyrone do make the final this year it would be hard to see them not beating their own previous score again. We're 56 points ahead of Dublin this year so far too having played twice as many games.

Thinking I saw that stat in the run-up to last year's final now. Would make sense that Dublin overtook them after the final.
So no, sorry, they aren't the most offensive team of all time, just the second most offensive team of all time.

None of that stuff can be accurate lads. Sure off the top of my head and going down memory lane, in the 1980 championship Roscommon scored:

9-19 v London
1-14 v Galway
3-13 v Mayo
2-20 v Armagh
1-6 (ouch) v Kerry

That's an average of 24 points per game.

A total of 120 points.

The fact is that 220 points total is the top score of all time over a championship.  That's 27.5 PPG if you want to go down that road.


All these totals will be beat over and over again with more and more games being added to the championship. God forbid if a decent Dublin side got put out of Leinster in a quarter final having played in the prelim then they would be looking at playing 11 games up to an all-ireland final. They would smash these records again.

Kicked 4:57 this year against 3 teams that have been D1 in the last two seasons, so as close to top level opposition as you get before this stage. An average of 22.7 points per game against that level of opposition.



I was going to compare all the teams left in the super 8 for games against D1 teams 2018/19 but the figures are all arse about foot on Wikipedia for this years Connacht Championship which they actually have Mayo down as winning. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_All-Ireland_Senior_Football_Championship

The Dublin one is that, yes. I do think it should be PPG if you are trying to make a case on offensive power. Don't get me wrong, Tyrone's PPG at 21 is seriously impressive. But against that, more games also mean that the good teams are just hammering a lot of bad teams along the way. Dublin may not get their first serious challenge this year until their game in Omagh (and even that could be two B teams out) - although I do hope both Cork and Ros can put it up to them. Many of the points in these records are of the shooting fish in a barrel variety.

lol you literally included a 9:19 hammering over London in your example.

This year Tyrone have played 3 D1 teams from this year and last already and have averaged 22.7 points per game against as close to top tier opposition as you can face at this stage of the season. If you're going to remove shooting fish in a barrel then you'd want to define that and apply that same logic to all historical totals.

For example the highest PPG total for any team that I can find is Kerry in 1979* with 29.8, but they had a score of 9:21 against Clare in the Munster semi-final. Should we discount that?

*An amazing year for Kerry, they also put 5:14 on Monaghan in the AI semi final and 3:13 on the Dubs in the final....


Edit: I'll also add that you can't really adjust for any records and you just have to take them as they are. People are moaning about C O'C potentially beating Gooch's record this weekend with 30 odd games to spare saying he's padded the total against Leitrim, Sligo, New York and London. That is true, but Tyrone players get to play against Antrim, Derry these days, Fermanagh before they went mad defensive. Kerry play against a load of crap below too and the Dubs get to play every other team in Leinster.

Records are whatever they are, points are kicked, goals are scored and you have to take it as it is.

I agree. Of course you could argue some decisions, as it’s a GAA match, but overall he’s been fair regarding awarding of frees.

The yellow cards have all been for high tackles. He’s definitely got more than one wrong and Tyrone on the wrong end of those. But I wouldn’t be too harsh on Colderick, he’s just been conned by the Rossies 2 or 3 times when they’ve gone down holding their heads when there’s been no head contact.

Very inconsistent. Seemed like a lot of challenges around the neck. Nothing all day and then pulls a yellow out for one. The McShane one stood out though.

That long ball from Morgan, catch by Sludden and point by Burns (I think) in the first half was a great passage of play. Not sure Sludden should've been allowed to catch that ball.

Not the highest of quality of games but a decent competitive contest all the same and far cry from the total mis-match that was played in Croke Park last year between the two.

Tyrone just that little smarter and match sharper on the day. I thought Roscommon did more that enough to find themselves at least level at half time and any underdog have to take the goal chances that came their way 1st half to stand any chance of causing upset.

Tyrone played their best football in the 2nd half displaying serious strength and conditioning the longer that game went on and once they got Cathal McShane more into the game (held scoreless from play 1st half) there was only going to be one winner. On the balance of play over the 70 plus minutes i thought the 4 point margin was a fair reflection of that match

Couldn't make the game but on TV it appeared that the Rossie crowd were hyper manic in the first half. Any contact from a Tyrone man was howled at and demonised and clearly Coldrick bought every single crowd outrage early on. Stupid reffing. When Ros had any sign of an attack the crowd went crazy and it appeared to affect the Ros players in my option. They played with the emotion the crowd projected. Tyrone played clinically and calmly and stepped it up in second half and Ros couldn't live with it.

McShane is getting better every week. I accept we need to keep our defensive more protected but would love to see us leave at least one man up with him. Surely McCurry playing off him would leave us much more dangerous with only a slight impact on our defensive structures.

Ref didn’t favour either team. Like all GAA matches he made mistakes. A couple of the Tyrone yellows were too harsh. Blowing the whistle for a Rossie free just as a Ros player was shooting at goal from close range was incorrect. Who knows whether the whistle affected the Ros player, but if that had hit the net, it would have been the worst decision of the match.

It was a bit ridiculous and it clearly influenced one of the worst refs about. Everytime tyrone tackled the fans shouted like mad regardless of if it was an actual foul and tyrone got a yellow card. What was the final card count? Tyrone got at least 6 yellows.

Spot on Ollie the better team won and Tyrone are a fine side. Some huge calls and phantom frees went against us, Tyrone had the 16th man tonight. That said they were the better side and said gobshite from Meath had a few strange calls against them too. Looked like a big penalty call in last 5 mins and did Tyrone score a goal that never was in second half looked like it to me.

If you all think Coldrick was poor today you must be comparing him to some phantom GAA referees. He was grand.

Maybe if the rules were less interpretive and players played with a bit more honesty matches would pass with much less grief given to the man in the middle.

Think you need to get your eyes checked.

I wonder what the reaction of Roscommon fans would be to a referee who actually screws you as Coldrick was bowing to the baying of the home crowd at every turn yesterday. The Ben McDonnell yellow card was a classic example, Cregg goes down holding his head, the crowd go into a frenzy and McDonnell gets a yellow card for an innocuous looking tackle. McGeary and Cavanagh also ended up with yellow cards after the awards of frees which weren't even fouls. Enda Smith probably should have had a red and a couple of yellows before he even got booked.

Luckily it didn't matter in the end but Coldrick gave Roscommon everything yesterday.

What chance does a referee have. When one has a decent game he still gets slaughtered. He made a few mistakes but he was generally fair to both teams. When you talk about the McDonnell yellow that is an example of the interpretive nature of the rules. The Roscommon player went down and held his head. In a split second the referee decided that the tackle was therefore a yellow. Too many times players try to con the referee by feigning head injuries. Is that the referees fault or the players? For the record I was roaring at the TV after that challenge for the Roscommon player to get up. After a couple of replays I saw he may well have hit his head on the ground. The referee has no chance.

Tyrone took Cregger out of the game with 2 big hits just before half time, got 2 yellows for it but the punishment does not fit the crime, very cynical from tyrone off the ball all match and totally ignored by all those great match officials.
That said Tyrone were the more controlled team and their 17 seasons in top flight football showed in match management, cuteness and experience.
If ros can keep this management team together they have 5 first choice players to return, McInerney, Comptom, C Murtagh Harney and Deveney, all missing for different reasons, also Cathal Heneghan who will be a very top class player. The future should be bright if we can keep it together but running a county team on a budget like the rossies have to do year in year out is not easy.

The McDonnell yellow was the clearest example of a ref bending to the crowds will. You'd swear to god that Cregg was viciously assaulted even though it was a harsh enough call to even give a free. A ref's job is to remain objective at all times but he's only human and clearly the crowd reaction primed him to make the wrong call.

Angelo makes an interesting point. Those watching on Sky would have heard Senan Connell reporting from the sideline that the Roscommon bench went straight up to Cavan Joe on the sideline to tell him to watch for the 20yard encroachment on Morgan's kickouts after they were rightly called up. The very next kixkout out Cavan Joe duly flagged up an infringement that was clearly wrong as the player was on the line not inside.

BTW, what a stupid rule. It should only apply to the player receiving the ball.

If ros can keep this management team together they have 5 first choice players to return, McInerney, Comptom, C Murtagh Harney and Deveney, all missing for different reasons, also Cathal Heneghan who will be a very top class player. The future should be bright if we can keep it together but running a county team on a budget like the rossies have to do year in year out is not easy.

McDonnell's tackle on Cregg was an innocuous foul, Cregg went down belatedly holding his head when there was absolutely no contact with it. He was hit fairly by Cavanagh in the next passage and Coldrick bizarrely gave him the free and booked McGeary for tackling him after it.

Cregg spent the whole game throwing himself to ground. The margin of victory would have been a lot wider had Coldrick reffed both sides under the same rules. I lost count about the amount of times Roscommon players swung a Tyrone man around by the neck and got away with a booking. HP McGeary was struck in the face when on the ground by Enda Smith in the first 50 seconds of the game after he had been fouled, it happened right in front of the linesman but nothing was done about it, McGeary to his credit got up off the ground fairly quickly and didn't make much of it but it was a certain red card had the referee seen it and done his job.

Rossfan red card my hole,Tyrone won game in second gear for most of the game.
Yup. Tyrone were never in trouble at any point yesterday.
Reality check

The game was very much in the melting pot 1st half and Roscommon could or should have led at the break, the fact they didn't came back to haunt and goals that was vital in the wins v Galway,Mayo didn't come v Tyrone.

I don't think losing to last years AI finalists by 4 points can be considered a reality check. Last years trimming v Tyrone in Croke Park certainly was and was one of the main reasons why Kevin McStay and his management stepped down.

Thought Coldrick had a decent enough game made a few mistakes, (what ref doesn't over the course of 70+mins) a couple of the yellows were harsh, but I would still agree that they were frees. He missed a couple of frees on both sides, but wouldn't agree that he rode either side.

The challenges by McDonnell and Cavanagh both looked awkward from the refs point of view. As someone said early Cregg hit his head off the ground after the challenge by McDonnell which probably did more damage than the hit.

Tyrone were clearly the better side from the off and never looked like they were going to be troubled. Bit like Dublin in the second game. Got scores easier and definitely had another gear in them.

In my opinion, the refereeing standards are set by the semi finals and final.  Tyrone, Mayo, Donegal, Dublin are honing the acceptable levels of cynicism that are permitted on the big stage. At present, these are essential if you are to come within an arses hair of Dublin as they are now the masters of the so called 'Dark Arts'-3rd man taking out the tackler, blocking runs, miniscule tugs of the jersey-(this is not a dig at Dublin, by the way)  If the GAA are serious about consistency, you start with the final as setting the standard (with the best officials and technology in the country) and then roll it out across the competition. We need to get away from 'sure it's the final' mentality.

Mayo were masters of this all through the league

I thought we might see more long range efforts like we did in the league with the breeze in our favor but Tyrone controlled the second half very well.

Hard to see any twist after yesterday.
Have to say any of the small Tyrone crowd I met yesterday seemed sound enough.
As we don't score enough points in our more defensive gameplan this year goals are vital as shown in the 3 Connacht games.
Even Leitrim had more points on the board against us till they fell away/packed it in in the closing stages.
Hard to see us changing our style next week whatever about the likely dead rubber in Páirc Uí Rinn/Chaoimh.

No what wasn't, that Roscommon could have led at half time?

Possession stakes especially 1st half was good from Roscommon. Tyrone had more of vice grip on possession 2nd half. Scoring average is rarely high against well organized defences as Tyrone's defence is, for example Mayo's last championship game v Tyrone was won with scoring just 0-13.

Main reason why Roscommon couldn't be competitive v the top teams was because they were ropey in defence.  The missed chances yesterday they didn't miss v Galway and Mayo was my point and those misses proved costly in the end.

That said Tyrone were the more controlled team and their 17 seasons in top flight football showed in match management, cuteness and experience.

Can’t help but remember the noise whenever Tyrone players are involved in unsavory incidents. Won’t be as much fuss about this I’m sure. Also hard to ignore the fact Tyrone players were given a lot of yellow cards for ‘high tackles’ and the initial foul by Smith is high up on HP. No card obviously.

The rossie fans were far too pumped up for this match. 2 points scored within 10 minutes and each time you thought they won the match. It was a bit ridiculous and it clearly influenced one of the worst refs about. Everytime tyrone tackled the fans shouted like mad regardless of if it was an actual foul and tyrone got a yellow card. What was the final card count? Tyrone got at least 6 yellows.

How can they have been "too pumped up" and yet influence the ref? Surely influencing the ref is the point of having a partisan home crowd. Sounds to me like the Ross fans did their bit

Have to say it was frustrating at the time, but always easier to take when winning. I can imagine how annoyed you'd feel if the game had been decided on  some of the calls.  But debating a bad refereeing display on here is a bit like a circle, pointless. Move on for the next one. Cork obviously looked up for the Dub game given their start. I'm just hoping that has knocked the wind out of their sails a bit.
Last year we were all saying that we were badly missing a Marque forward to do the damage in the vein of a Murphy, McManus, (insert any number of dubs). Is McShane developed enough to offer Tyrone that? Certainly has the talent and has cut out the wastefulness (Mostly). McShane, Donnelly and Harte are three top class players if they can click. Also Sludden when on form can be brilliant. But it's took a while coming this year.
Fancy Kerry to run  Dublin close this year.

An elbow shoulder in the back as he was shooting is a penalty. Given the soft scorable frees he gave Tyrone all day, he somehow missed that. Worse it sent Smith sprawling against post injured and he was not the same player after that. Double advantage to Tyrone there.

He broke a tackle and should have created a better angle for himself of fisted it across the goal.

When tyrone are playing you dont need to imagine anything, it happens right in front of your eyes, Smith got fouled after he hit that shot that was saved by morgan, peno all day, also after the save from cregg a tyrone player picked the ball straight off the ground in the big square but sure the ref was a rossie ;D

You've a vivid imagination. Will the Roscommon media be running a match report this week on how they beat Tyrone as they bid to defend their All Ireland title or does the delusion extend only to the performance of the referee?
They are always like that, the most delusional fans in the country. Won Connacht this year and you had grown Rossie men crying like it was Leitrim circa 1994

nice to crying for joy after a final though😊..if Mayo weren’t so cocky about Roscommon they’d wouldn’t be worn out and in danger of crashing out to a fresh young Meath team..

It's the exact same as the cavan player who punched meyler in the jaw, it's all forgotten about as it wasn't a Tyrone player doing it. Best just to keep these clips until some stupid person questions a potential foul by a Tyrone player then post it.

Any natural can clearly see what has been going on the last 2 weeks against Tyrone. Its clear that there will be more "missed"incidents against tyrone players in the next few weeks

The Sunday game did a piece on Roscommons persistent fouling and all Brolly could really say was "these Tyrone boys are looking for it".
The Sunday game pointed out that tyrone got a free every time a finger was laid on them unlike ros who could not buy a free from coldrick.

They pointed out that Roscommon gave away a number of needless, idiotic frees due to their shocking indiscipline. Brolly just got the number wrong, he claimed Tyrone got 5 frees in the first half when I think it was actually only 2 or 3.

Some scandalously uninformed horseshite being passed off on this thread and in the media in general as regards this game.

Coldrick ballsed up some yellow card decisions but on the balance of play got most things right the last day, it was far from the worst refereeing display I've ever seen and to be fair to those yellow cards it was exceptionally physical and hard-hitting with a fair degree of off the ball stuff from both sides. It was far from a easy game to ref and I fully expected a player from one of the sides to see a second yellow during the game, to be fair to Coldrick he just about managed to keep a lid on things without having to send anyone off.

I was very impressed by Tyrone and by default Roscommon on Saturday. As regards Ros they're a completely different animal to the side McStay had last year, he's just wasn't at the cut of top level management. Had the necessary level of cynicism needed to match the big boys and were clever in breaking down our blanket defence in the first half. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and couldn't help but think Cunningham is styling a fair bit of Roscommon's game on Tyrone's. The first half was like one team playing against a mirror. Both used zonal marking on kickouts and were prepared to concede one to the corner back before retreating in defensive formation at the halfway line. Both relied on a patient running game with an occasional longer kick pass into physically big but mobile inside forwards. Both had detailed man-markers to key men and both sides were pulling and dragging to impede players off the ball. Peter Harte and Enda Smith in particular were singled out for close "attention". It was no surprise really that it was blow for blow for 45 minutes before Tyrone got the upper hand.

There was a lot of pressure on Tyrone attacks which made the point scoring in the first half particularly notable. Sludden was amazing, picked his form up of the floor with 3 wonder points. Brennan and McNamee rode their luck a fair bit but all will be reasonably happy to have held their men to a point each from play. A goal would have been a really really telling score for either team and Ros looked the much more likely whilst the game was still in the melting pot. It's probably a testament to the defensive philosophies of the sides that this was the only Super 8 tie not to raise a green flag.

Harte, Donnelly and McShane really turned this tie in that period where we rattled 3-4 points in succession. I thought their contribution was really telling in that period which was a bonus because none of the 3 had really been having marque days until that point. Our handling and distribution was for the most part top class and for me that was the difference in the teams. Roscommon were guilty of spilling the ball on a few occasions especially in really dangerous positions and for me that's why we took the points. It's nothing to do with a 5 week layoff, lack of conditioning or "over emotion" (for f**ks sake).

As regards the downsides; Harte, Morgan and McShane all missing frees really pissed me off. McShane's last miss was the worst because he should have put it down for Morgan but took on one outside his range and put it to waste despite being well within Morgans capability. Burns, once again, is a real curates egg. He appears incredibly slack in defence and at times one dimensional and greedy when attacking. Ballooned a ball wide from 50m in the opening minutes, on a day marked by clever and patient attacking by both sides it stood out as particularly brainless. However he has an engine to cover ground surpassed only by Meyler and Matty Donnelly and Harte has alot of faith in him, regularly giving him the 70 minutes so he's definitely seeing something important in him. He's definitely filling an important role for this side but I can't put my finger on what it is.

Meyler and Brennan have solidified this team two fold since their inclusion. I can't think of a singe game were Rory Brennan has put a foot wrong in a Tyrone shirt and it's mind-blowing that for so long and for so many people (including management) he has been seen as a dispensable option in the side. The anti-Harte brigade love to pillar him for dropping or overlooking Lee Brennan, Bradley, Ronan O'Neill and Coney but leaving R Brennan out of the side for so long is probably a much more worthy criticism that any of those. Morgan had a good day on kickouts and shot-stopping but there'll be days when were pressed much much harder than this and that defence can't get complacent and believe that they now have the restart mastered.

I've a lot of hope going forward and Ros should have too. Far too little credit is given in the mainstream media for any of our victories and this isn't a "world against Tyrone" tirade. We knocked out Cork, Donegal, Meath, Cavan and Roscommon (more or less) in last years championship and all 5 have showed in games since to actually be top footballing sides who can mix it with the best and beat the best. In every instance last year those victories were dismissed with the analysis "ah sure they're shite/they're on the downslope/they don't know what they're at". Taking on a in-form Rossie side away from home in front of a partisan crowd and coming away with a disciplined victory is a huge achievement and Ros should be far from disappointed by their performance. Tyrone's performance and result at the weekend was every bit as noteworthy as Kerry tanking an ageing, injured Mayo at home.

One last thing, HP McGeary was assigned to mark Geariod McKiernan the last day v Cavan and completely nullified one of Cavan's main performers. He stuck to him, hounded and harassed him around the park and completely put McKiernan off his game. It was no suprise to see him pick up Smith on Sunday given he had just a week previously nullified a players who's game is almost a carbon copy of Smiths. He strayed over the lines of the rule book whilst trying to mark Smith and was correctly given a yellow card. That doesn't excuse what Smith done. I was in the crowd and clearly seen that he struck Hugh Pat in the head whilst he was on the ground. How the ref but particularly the linesman standing in front of the incidence missed it is baffling. I could mitigate it by saying it mightn't have been a punch/I'm sure Smith regrets being so reckless/he doesn't seem to be a dirty player etc but all the same it was an unsporting action and should have been a red card at the time. There's none of the usual twitteratti / TSG hysteria accompanying this that would have been the case were it a player like Neil McGee/ Tiernan McCann/ Eoin Kerins which to me reaffirms my belief certain players/teams are held to different standards than the rest.

What did HP actually do to Smith to get his yellow? Wasn't shown on TV and it seemed like either they couldn't find video of it or they forgot to look.

Smith's punch was a fairly dirty act, McCann was rightly called out by everyone for his dirty actions against Donegal and what Smith did was every bit as bad but in all the analysis I've read or heard since the game apart from on here there's not been a single mention of it.

As for the ref, I said thoughout the game I thought he was reffing the game well in terms of calling fouls, didn't miss much and I don't think either side should complain about that but the Rossies will because they know they haven't a leg to stand on with the card count so have to come up with some nonsense to deflect.

Smtih should have had a red, another black should have been handed out late in the game for the throw of McShane to the ground. Probably the most blatent black I've ever seen and after seeing some of the cards we've had in the last few weeks it was terrible it was missed. Some of the other yellows we got were beyond a joke.

It's not just this game that has us boiling over this. It's constant these days and coming on the heels of the Cavan match where the card count was again farcical then you have to wonder is it more than just simple reffing errors.

You obviously watched the match at home on tv. It's alot easier to call a yellow card fair/unfair having watched a succession of slow motion replays from your sofa. David Coldrick got one look at it happening at full pelt through a sea of bodies. They aren't easy calls to make. Add in the fact that players are going down clutching their head and faces for any contact of note and the difficulty in discerning the "truth" in a tackle is very difficult for anyone. To be fair to Coldrick he held back all day on issuing reds and blacks probably because he didn't see an instance where he could be 100% sure that it was definitely a black or definitely a red. It's a much greater injustice to have a player incorrectly sent off than to have a opposition player dealt with leniently.

I haven't seen the highlights yet barring Smiths strike on McGeary. For the record from the one look at the yellows I got on Saturday I couldn't definitively say that any of the cards dealt out were harsh with the exception of Ben McDonnells. Colly threw himself about recklessly all day and my heart was in my mouth watching him tackle because so many of them appeared rash and mistimed.

I'd completely disagree with what you said about McCann being rightly called out. I think there was a lot of hysteria around that incident that was unfair on an amateur player and I've seen it many times before in the GAA sadly. He deserved his ban but not the holier than thou condemnation from the "fur coat/no knickers" brigade. Conor Gormley, Diarmurd Connolly, Noel O'Leary, Francy Bellew, Neil McGee, Paul Galvin to name but a few have all been on the end of the "he's a disgrace/tr**p/coward/should be banned for life/never set foot on a pitch again" hand wringing. It's fuelled by two things; the sensationalism of certain Sunday Game analysts and old-fashioned Irish begrudgery. First it happens to a player from your country and old foes cry bloody murder so you bide your time until it's some other poor bstard's turn and then stick the boot into him.

Not sure the specific incident Patsy was carded for but he was hanging out of Smith for the early part of the game. It was certainly not a particularly unjust yellow. My only qualm with it was that Petey Harte is consistently targeted for special treatment of the ball, mainly because it's so effective, but I've yet to see a ref try to stamp it out. Matty Donnelly and McShane are physically powerful enough to counter such attention and the likes of Sludden have the yard of pace that make jersey pulling and holding so much more obvious to referees. Peter Harte doesn't have the size or pace to counter "off the ball" tactics but because he's such a vital cog in the Tyrone machine it's now a traditional tactic of nullifying Tyrone and it's very cynical. John Small does give him a horrid time off the ball when Tyrone play Dublin.

As for the ref, I said thoughout the game I thought he was reffing the game well in terms of calling fouls, didn't miss much and I don't think either side should complain about that but the Rossies will because they know they haven't a leg to stand on with the card count so have to come up with some nonsense to deflect.

Smtih should have had a red, another black should have been handed out late in the game for the throw of McShane to the ground. Probably the most blatent black I've ever seen and after seeing some of the cards we've had in the last few weeks it was terrible it was missed. Some of the other yellows we got were beyond a joke.

It's not just this game that has us boiling over this. It's constant these days and coming on the heels of the Cavan match where the card count was again farcical then you have to wonder is it more than just simple reffing errors.

You obviously watched the match at home on tv. It's alot easier to call a yellow card fair/unfair having watched a succession of slow motion replays from your sofa. David Coldrick got one look at it happening at full pelt through a sea of bodies. They aren't easy calls to make. Add in the fact that players are going down clutching their head and faces for any contact of note and the difficulty in discerning the "truth" in a tackle is very difficult for anyone. To be fair to Coldrick he held back all day on issuing reds and blacks probably because he didn't see an instance where he could be 100% sure that it was definitely a black or definitely a red. It's a much greater injustice to have a player incorrectly sent off than to have a opposition player dealt with leniently.

I haven't seen the highlights yet barring Smiths strike on McGeary. For the record from the one look at the yellows I got on Saturday I couldn't definitively say that any of the cards dealt out were harsh with the exception of Ben McDonnells. Colly threw himself about recklessly all day and my heart was in my mouth watching him tackle because so many of them appeared rash and mistimed.

I'd completely disagree with what you said about McCann being rightly called out. I think there was a lot of hysteria around that incident that was unfair on an amateur player and I've seen it many times before in the GAA sadly. He deserved his ban but not the holier than thou condemnation from the "fur coat/no knickers" brigade. Conor Gormley, Diarmurd Connolly, Noel O'Leary, Francy Bellew, Neil McGee, Paul Galvin to name but a few have all been on the end of the "he's a disgrace/tr**p/coward/should be banned for life/never set foot on a pitch again" hand wringing. It's fuelled by two things; the sensationalism of certain Sunday Game analysts and old-fashioned Irish begrudgery. First it happens to a player from your country and old foes cry bloody murder so you bide your time until it's some other poor bstard's turn and then stick the boot into him.

Not sure the specific incident Patsy was carded for but he was hanging out of Smith for the early part of the game. It was certainly not a particularly unjust yellow. My only qualm with it was that Petey Harte is consistently targeted for special treatment of the ball, mainly because it's so effective, but I've yet to see a ref try to stamp it out. Matty Donnelly and McShane are physically powerful enough to counter such attention and the likes of Sludden have the yard of pace that make jersey pulling and holding so much more obvious to referees. Peter Harte doesn't have the size or pace to counter "off the ball" tactics but because he's such a vital cog in the Tyrone machine it's now a traditional tactic of nullifying Tyrone and it's very cynical. John Small does give him a horrid time off the ball when Tyrone play Dublin.

Below is the link to the punch on the head. You only need 1 viewing to know it was a clear strike. The linesman and ref had the perfect view of it. But as ot happened early in the game the ref ignored it

Surprised that there’s no media outrage over this.

Surely Enda Smith must be facing a ban. In fact, Ciaran Whelan should take him by the scruff of the neck and make him apologise to the nation.

Edit. I forgot that punching someone in the face is manly, therefore is ok in the GAA.

And Enda didn't get a box in the face in the first minute.
And Killoran didn't get a box in the head.
And the whole Tyrone team are innocent choir boys led by St Mickey.

With a ref enforcing the rules of the game Tyrone would have finished with about 12 players. Roscommon had two stone wall penos not given either. Smith was foulded for his goal chance and Murtagh was nearly raped off the ball when a shot was dropping short,Its was  right in front of coldrick who chose to ignore it as he did when Glennon was fouled before the ball arrived later in the game, Was atrocious reffereeing and laughably one sided in favor of Tyrone.

Cian Ward who I see as one of the better GAA analysts on GAA Hour called it a stonewalled penalty. Tyrone will be outraged by their yellow cards but I would rather get the ref decisions that impact scoreline any-day and they got the benefit of the non penalty call and the soft storable frees. Having said that, best team won and onto Round 2.

That's quite a unique sight, to actually see a Tyrone player (Harte) on his knees after a tackle, holding his head in genuine pain.

I had to look at the incident about 20 times, gradually stripping off 19 engrained layers of disbelief. First impression (like most non Tyronies) was this was good theatre, supremely good method acting, in contrast for example to that clown McCann.

No doubt the howls of indignation have reached fever pitch in Tyrone, the ref!!  the sunday game!! the pundits!!!  all ignoring the incident  and most everybody carries on assuming (with innocent prejudice)  that Tyronies are the perennial sinners, the cynical masters of the GAA world.

Of course he was expecting a thump, thats what Tyrone do. I will be heading in to Asda  Strabane Friday evening and will be expecting a few thumps as well.  ;D

Seriously when you talk to random GAA heads from other counties, the mere mention of Tyrone is met with a barge of "those dirty b~stards". It is what it is, Tyrone are a seriously fine side, but they are absouletly filthy.

Imagine for a second if that was McCann who did what Smith did there. Imagine the social media outrage.
When tyrone are playing you dont need to imagine anything, it happens right in front of your eyes, Smith got fouled after he hit that shot that was saved by morgan, peno all day, also after the save from cregg a tyrone player picked the ball straight off the ground in the big square but sure the ref was a rossie ;D

You've a vivid imagination. Will the Roscommon media be running a match report this week on how they beat Tyrone as they bid to defend their All Ireland title or does the delusion extend only to the performance of the referee?
They are always like that, the most delusional fans in the country. Won Connacht this year and you had grown Rossie men crying like it was Leitrim circa 1994

The above brought to you by a Mayoman. Doing delusion better than anyone for 70 odd years.
