Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:59:34 PM »
Do you remember the league last year?
It looks like we're a good bit behind other teams in the level of fitness and game plan.

You can obviously see Kerry's new manager had a plan to get his young underage players into the winning mentality and they are scrapping and working like dogs this early in the year. He knows Kerry need to make a statement and come out all guns blazing and they have done that. They will have a lot of belief in themselves now and to bring that you team to a league final will do wonders for their confidence.
Whereas Tyrone and Dublin look to have taken a lot of time off to relax since Sept and are not long back from their well deserved holiday.

That interview Harte did with Teamtalkmag you can see he isn't too bothered about how bad things look and he's saying he thought they played well actually.
I won't be wasting any more money to go see them until May time I think.

Have we seen this before where we go into a new season full of hope and excitement with how good the new recruits look in the McKenna cup and talk of huge competition for places and then it all falls flat on its face.

A few weeks ago we were EXPECTING to win for the first time in a long time down in Killarney but again we are left feeling a little cheated as fans and wonder what the hell is going on.
It seems pretty obvious now that the team has no interest in fighting too hard for a win at this time of year and are just going through the motions. Our lack of an obvious Plan B has risen its head again as we continue to be very predictable and want to run with the ball all the time and then don't know how to break down a defensive blanket.

Brolly and Dessie Dolan were almost creaming themselves last night watching the Kerry v Dubs game and saying this is how football should be played. Poor JC didn't know now whether to interrupt them and disagree with everything Joe said as before or to let them both off the leash.

It seems pretty obvious from Harte's interviews and newspaper chat that he has zero interest in this league and staying up is his aim and even if we go down is it that bad.
The run last year to the AI Final probably has confirmed his beliefs about you gotta pace yourself and be more ready for July and August rather than worrying should you lose a first round match in Ulster in late May.
With what SHOULD BE two easy games v Derry and Antrim to begin with I'd say Mickey's focus is on 9th June semifinal v Fermanagh or Donegal.

I know I know I shouldn't make assumptions to beat 2 Div four teams.

Re Midfield, I thought Kennedy would be catching a lot more clean ball but I suppose this is all very new to him and he's not really had a good partner in the middle.

One big rumour indeed where we should all back off and stop digging. Do ever learn to stop adding to the bad news that follows us around and let sleeping dogs lie.

Watched it last night and previously I was delighted when I heard she took him to task as I do think Joe gets away with murder but I thought she went after him far too aggressively and you could see Joe was waiting on it (or else it was staged).
I much prefer Cantwell to Lyster who was just a yes man in my eyes and was never able to rein Joe in time and time again but you can see Cantwell right away has an agenda to keep him tight to the question asked.
She even said to Gooch yes but you didn't answer the question did you Colm.

I hope she chills a bit and let them talk a bit off the cuff but also glad Brolly isn't allowed to attack players or teams without putting up good arguments. I'd say Mayo and O'Shea are already annoyed with him.

Didn't see the show last night as got home late from Killarney and hadn't the appetite to watch any more GAA in bad conditions as it was already difficult watching that rubbish first time around.  ;D

Funny though I had mentioned to the lads on the way down on Sat evening about how Ms Cantwell will be a lot more interesting that Lyster and wont be letting Brolly off the hook as much. I heard her on last year and a few times she pulled him up on things and I could already detect some tension.
Whilst I think Brolly can be very funny live (i.e. off telly), I think he always has an alternative agenda and like many have already said has his mind made up on what he's gonna say before a game starts.
He shows a huge lack of respect to those around him and needs his own show as he takes over everything he appears in, especially chat shows.

I look forward to more of JC's reining Joe in and hopefully also giving O'Rourke enough rope to hand himself.
Did ye hear him on that radio show yesterday interviewing poor Rory Gallagher about how shite Fermanagh are and how he is making a show of himself and Fermanagh by being so defensive. O'Rourke has surpassed Spillane in my eyes.
On another note, when do RTE start showing live league games?

Yeah we were at the game and were amazed he brought on DC rather than LB but someone beside me said maybe it was cos LB had been playing Sigerson recently. I would say it's just Mickey hoping Canavan can learn quickly.

Kerry were  very well organised and snuffed out all our attempts and going forward. We looked very lethargic and almost not interested in trying to work hard to break them down. They maybe underestimated how much Kerry would be up for it and they worked harder and more defensively than usual.

Who are....?

What about these currency cards like Monzo or Revolut?
This is the answer - it will change your life.


Thanks guys but in Vegas can you buy chips with it or do you need cash?
Is there a limit of $200 a month before ATM fees

Yes there is a lot of talk around that alright but I think he's doing just fine in goals.
Yes every so often there is a mess where his short kick out goes wrong but more often that not it's because the defender is not alert to his man cutting in, in front of him.

I think as he matures he is becoming more composed and not getting so involved with other players or their fans.

I see TG4 are showing Monaghan v Dublin live on Sunday.
Any schedule yet for RTE showing live league games?

Don't see any on this weekend's schedule but see the League Sunday show on from 21.30 to 23.15.

Eir Sport are showing

26/01/19   Sat   19:00   Mayo v Roscommon   eir Sport 2
02/02/19   Sat   19:00   Dublin v Galway   eir sport 1
09/02/19   Sat   19:00   Kerry v Dublin   eir sport 1
09/02/19   Sat   19:00   Mayo v Cavan   eir sport 2
23/02/19   Sat   19:00   Dublin v Mayo   eir sport 1
23/02/19   Sat   19:00   Tyrone v Monaghan   eir Sport 2

Colm O'Rourke knows his stuff and never lets his anti Tyrone bias get rule his head.

This is probably the best game of the round. With Peter Keane in charge of Kerry now he値l want to start running as fast as possible; he値l be hoping to unearth the new David Clifford and he値l be throwing in the young lads that he won All-Irelands with at minor level. These are exciting times in Kerry football; Keane is asking for patience, but there痴 no patience in Kerry, only next September.

I知 expecting a Kerry win even though Tyrone always take the league very seriously under Mickey Harte and I知 expecting the Kingdom to be in the shake-up in league and Championship.

What age is Burns?

Do people think we will be as open as we were in the McKenna cup?
I see Mickey said he's happy enough for Morgan to come out the field as much as he once as long as its sensible.

Is McKernan the new Rory B after his great year last year?

That's amazing odds for a team travelling to Killarney.
Considering the competitive squad we have I'm surprised by a few of those subs.

Mickey has never been shy to pick Errigal men over other players over the years as we know even going back in 2003 but I'd say Peter would rather Mickey wasn't so keen to play Darragh so soon but I think Mickey knows it will raise the interest in Tyrone this year and is good for Mickey and Errigal.

Would have thought Meyler at wing back and Kernan in the corner. Was out on the pitch after the game last Sat and so many of the players are now huge and so bulked up. Even McCurry is strong looking now and I have a feeling Mulgrew could be in for a great year. Where does he play for Ardboe?
A friend compared Kennedy to Anthony Tohill but so I'm looking forward to seeing him this Sunday as I've not seen him yet.

I see in the Irish News where Mickey says he finds it hard to pick 26 and to leave lads out who have been working their a$$ off in training. He says why not just allow your whole squad at least tog out and not feel like they've no chance of playing on the day.

Are many of ye coming down on Sat night for the Q&A night in the Killarney court with Canavan and Moynihan?

McNamee not suspended because sending off was in another competition last weekend? Will he see further punishment after striking out after receiving his red card?


Certainly a few surprises in that line up for me, besides no Hampsey and Collie
Rory Brennan must wonder what he has to do for championship football as he gets handed the No 6 jersey for an away league game in Killarney. Surprised no Meyler as well but delighted to see Mulgrew at FF.
Many of us will love that HF line but I'm surprised McClure got the nod at MF beside the giant K

Looking forward to Sat night in Killarney at the Killarney court with a Q&A session with Canavan and Moynihan hosted by Barry McElduff. Should be a good crowd as I believe he has over 100 coming down in 2 buses for it.

Is there still no news on the actual squad for the league or is Mickey keeping it hush for now.

Charming. You come out with such a retort and say nothing else to back up why?
You've added a lot to this threat with such wisdom

Have also heard Hampsey is fit to start too.
Don't shoot the messenger!!

I've heard from a good source on Sat night that Collie is fit and ready for Sunday and just being rested as was Mattie until Sat night.
I spoke to Richie and he's ready too with no injuries and was first choice at FF for a lot of last year's championship folks and would not be at all surprised to see him back there on Sunday with Petey roaming everywhere.

The league rarely goes as expected but I'd say this is our best chance (on paper) in years that we could come away with a win. Armagh and Monaghan have won down there in the early rounds of the league over the past 5 or 6 years have they not? Did Donegal?
