2nd best team in the country that put up a decent display against what's widely regarded as the best team ever. We're in a good place with a very good young team.

I watched back some highlights of the great games I the naughties. All the finals, the Dublin games etc. What teams they were and I got particular confidence from the 08 win. That wasn't a team full of outstanding forwards but they stood up big time. Guys you never hear mentioned any more were the backbone of that team.

2003 - I just managed to get a ticket half an hour before throw in Dublin.
2005 - Went to every game that year and no ticket to be had for the final. Was bulling, didn't go to Dublin and didn't go to a game for the full year after.
2008 - Again, couldn't get a ticket for the final despite being at all but 1 game all year.
2018 - Not able to go to the final as I booked my holidays without checking the date of the new final and have been offered tickets without even looking for them.


FML!!!

Are you a member of your club?
I have never had any problem getting a ticket for any Tyrone game. They may not always have been the greatest of tickets, but always able to get one easily enough.

Been living in sligo since the late 90s so not a member of a club in Tyrone. Getting offered them this time through my club in sligo.

Tickets sorted for upper Davin row h so happy enough. Gives good weather for weekend too. Excitement building.
hearing plenty of tickets about anyway. alot of spares in our club and heard of a club that sent 40 back.

Which Club?

It's his imagination. It's a subtle dig at Harte saying Tyrone people won't support the county. Bullshit basically

Yep, an armband or something that would be easy to take off and hand to another player if they'removing into the forwards would make it pure easy to see.

I've no problem with a team chasing a game going balls out and leaving 4 v 2 at the back. In fact I'd expect it to happen most games near the end of there's a team a few points behind. You're as well being beat by 5 as by 2.

On the other side of that I don't understand the GAA's insistence that both teams change their kits when there are colour clashes, let them toss if it's a neutral venue game and make the away team change where there is a home team.

The home team are more likely to have access to a change kit if the away team has traveled without a spare set.

In Jr Soccer that's the rule. If the ref decides there's a clash the home team have to change.

4 players have to stay in own half would make a huge difference.  As long as the opposition also had to keep at least 4 people back in defense, otherwise if a team are a couple down going into injury time they could have all out 15 in attack and the other team have 4 players stuck at the half way line.  It would help a team attack as well to have 4 forwards when they they turned the ball over.

I disagree with this. Let teams attack with 15 and leave 4 men free if they want to take that gamble. Would also make it easier to ref if all he has to mind is 8 players over 16 to keep in the right area. If you have 4 designated forwards have them wear a bib or something to designate they're one of the players to stay forward. The manager can rotate these bibs during a break of play.

GAA Discussion / Re: Mayo manager resigns - for defo.

Putting McGuinness in charge of that Mayo team would be like Darth Vader taking a team of ewoks.
Everybody loved the ewoks, but who could support a side managed by Darth Vader?
The ewoks would lose a lot of goodwill.

I would have taken a Darth Vader if it meant an AI but too late now. Everybody has a DV in charge now or doing the coaching.
Paddy Tally went to Galway and tried to turn them into Tyrone. Now he is going over to Down to turn them into Tyrone as well. That is 2 of the most aesthetic footballing counties being reduced to blandness.

Apologies to Tyrone. I loved the Tyrone team of the noughties. This team is different and height of respect for them and no problem with what they do. I cant stand though other teams trying to do the same thing and doing it poorly.

The funny thing about tally having this reputation is that Walsh was interviewed last week and said he doesn't understand how tally has it when he was over the attack coaching in Galways and Walsh himself was responsible for the defense.

I think people just look at where he's from and assume that's his doing.

Jayop do you think Mc Guinness would not be a good choice as manager

I don't, not for Mayo at this time. Several reasons.

1) Tactics have moved on big time from his success with Donegal and I don;t know if he's got other new ideas. Going by his write up for the final this year it doesn't look like it.

2) He's a short term solution and Mayo need a long term one imo. Maybe just maybe these great players have 1 more rattle in them to get over the line, but honestly, I think a bit of a rebuild job and try to get back there in a couple of years with some fresh blood.

3) That style won't play well with the Mayo faithful who're used to going man to man.


I know all of that is pretty negative and f**k it if he came in and won  Sam with 15 men beside the ball they'd take down Monsignor Horan's statue outside the airport and put up one for Jim.

No. What would be the point? Mayo needed a McGuiness in 2011. Not now. The game has moved into the post McGuinness era already. Dublin and Tyrone play Ultra McGuinness.

I agree that the McGuiness ship has sailed.

Heard a story about a huge sum of money being put up to get a man a "soft job" a house and some nice things money by a sponsor. More likely than not utter rubbish but the name of the manager was McGuiness.


(honestly believe this to be rubbish but sure you never know)

The gas thing is we're playing Dublin this weekend and there's never any shite coming from the Dubs fans by and large. It's muppets who's own counties are that shite that hey rely on Tyrone bashing as their primary interest in GAA.
