Hard luck to the Rock. They put in some effort.

Serious effort by both teams.  Some jobsworth that ref.  Thought he was about to send another Rock player off after the whistle for a wee hand squeeze

He got a couple squeezed handshakes at the end.  ;D Can't blame players for been frustrated as yellow cards were very soft.

Be hard not to blow a gasket surely

Whilst some of the articles are hit and miss,  the IN's GAA coverage is the best about by a country mile imo

I honestly believe Derry would have beaten Dublin last year

He might have been that age when you fellas wanted him in and a wee bit older when you wanted him out again.

Micky, no harm to ye, but someone might engage with you a bit more if you didn't continuously make sweeping statements, be that about coaching or supporters.

Difficult to do that much at 67 years of age. I leave that up to you fellas.

I'd say John Brennan wishes he was 67 years young  ;)

As I said before fellas and I will say it again. You are deliberately ignoring the big elephant. A large part of the blame must lie with our football clubs who raise these players for years and don't teach them all the skills. I hear we have a man coming up from Dublin in March to show our clubs how to teach players to kick and fist pass and hand to toe with the left and the right. Derry managers are inheriting flaws that clubs have made.

Have you just woken up from a 20 year sleep?   You can have all the skill in the world,  if you're not setup right esp at County level,  you'll be found wanting.  We're not short in skilful players in the county

Bohan has good ideas,  like most good coaches.  He's touring counties,  why not have a listen? Be a bit more worthwhile than repeatedly taking potshots at club managers / coaches.  You at much yourself to progress football in the county?

Look here fellas. Go easy on these young players. They are trying their best and giving up their nights and weekends.

Nobody is blaming the players.

Exactly,  due to whatever we are missing players in every sector of the field bar the keeper. However,  we're just too easy to play against.  What is our game plan?  If it is a straight shoot out,  then go for it.  Get the ball in early to the big men,  but this doesn't happen.  The inside man is left isolated for the majority of the match as slowly move the ball side to side allowing the opposition to get set. 
If it's a very defensive,  then go for it.  This isn't happening either as for the last season and a bit we get cut open at will by teams.  And not just top tier teams either. 
 I'll not stop travelling to the games to give my support because I think they are not set up as well as they should be.  We left Navan yesterday and all of us agreed that game plan isn't benefitting the players. 

Defence wise,   we're missing (from those who are still part of the panel) the McKaigues,  BR,  Mark Craig and I'd have McFaul as wingback. Add those and have either Heavron or Carlus (who shielded Sheridan well in the first half)  screening the back three.  The personnel is there to create a mean tight defence.

In McFaul,  Heavron,  Lynn and Forrester,  you've boys who can break tackles and support run til the cows come home.  We've target men in McGuckin,  McGuigan,  Tallon,  Sukie etc who can do damage when the ball goes in etc etc ie,  it all seems doom and gloom at the minute,  but,  imo the we have the players to form a good,  well set team who could be a hoor to play against

Be nice to see it come together because at the minute it's not doing the players justice

Good to see Meath performing well as it franks Kildare's form. From the reports on Radio 1 it sounded like Cillian O'Sullivan did a lot of harm.

He was excellent today especially in the 2nd half.  Against the wind in the first half he was involved in everything.. Superb player

Stick 30 red and white jerseys on the slaughtneil men after 17march is past - will give Tyrone a better game in May than the present team at the minute

Did Tyrone U21's not beat Slaughneil in a challenge match that got very heated?! Them redhands are so far ahead of us its embarrassing we are just the poor relatives in relation to Tyrone. Relegation is now very real, lets face it i seen Meath up close twice last year they are a poor outfit and yet they hammered us today 3-15 and we scored 2 points scored in the second half wtf! Barton must have the cigar lit and feet up picking up the paychecks as i haven't seen any improvement in structure or kickouts, i haven't read a match report or interview yet but id bet the ready made excuses are we are in a development phase ( which seems to have been on going for the past 6 years) , slaughneil players are unavailable, we don't have fergal or patsy anymore ( why we can't seem to have an outball in midfield and have to kick every kickout to the cornerbacks so very team in ireland knows to push up on our kickouts).

In defence of young McKindless,  with the wind in the first half,  bar 1 wayward kick,  he was pretty much pinpoint inc 3 'marks'.  He made  a couple of great point blank saves in the 2nd half.  I couldn't quite see what happened for the sending off,  was it a trip? It was down at the far end and my eyelids had frozen at that stage.

I'll agree with tbrick,  there's no structure to our game,  everyman seems to be playing off the cuff.  Young Keenan equitted himself very well,  esp in the first half.  Nevin had a torrid time in the 2nd half on big Sheridan.  Forrester and big Kielt played well and Enda Lynn is by some distance our best player.  Big Emmet busted himself as usual but was living on meagre scraps as usual. 

We continue to go backwards and it would be some turnaround (even with 5 games to go)  to avoid relegation.

Thank christ we're not hosting Kildare next week as another battering 2 weeks is the last thing this team needs

If a Tyrone side behaved like Crokes have done today, there would be people screaming blue murder over it.

Yer hole!

Sweep, sweep.

Good competitive club game,  no systematic sledging,  diving,  goading a player after a score,  spitting,  dropping knees into a man's back...so, not near Tyrones level.  Anyhoo,  the Tyrone club were relevant in this thread months ago

Slaughtneil holding Vincents better than I thought they would. Should actually be a couple ahead at half time instead of 1 down.

Slaughtneil probably the best back 6 in club football.  McKaigue snr blew Connolly clean out of the water.  Some achievement from a great club
