GAA Discussion / Re: Derry 1993 - 25 years on
« on: September 23, 2018, 04:20:04 PM »
I always felt Derry was Ulsters best chance to keep the run going in 1995. Tyrone beat them, but I thought they wouldn't have enough to win an AI. And so it proved. 1995 was a big opportunity for Derry to win a second AI.

It's weird that that team never really got close again.

Agree. If there was a backdoor in 1995, Derry would have had their 2nd all-ireland.

Football moves on a lot in 10-15 years. That Tyrone team wouldn’t lay a glove on the current Dublin team.

Guys like Ricey, Gormley & Hub Hughes in their prime would'nt lay a glove on the current Dublin team?

They never won back to back All Ireland’s, move along

Tyrone had serious competitors in Kerry and Armagh.at that time. All 3 teams were around the same level so doing back to backs was extremely difficult.

thought they were dirty when we played them last year in the league especially when the game was starting to slip away from them.

Sad that Burts passed on, he did a lot of corny shit but some decent films

Sharkys Machine, The End, Deliverance, the bandit and Cannonball films and of course Boogie nights!

Boogie Nights is a classic.

It was a strange kind of game in the sense that, Tyrone win the first twenty minutes and they win the second half. Yet that 15 minute burst by the Dubs before the end of the first half where they scored like 2 - 6 was the winning of the game right there. I think Tyrone were shell shocked after the penalty and they lost their concentration and composure, especially after starting so well, all of a sudden to find themselves level. 

If Tyrone can continue to improve like they did this year I think they won't be far away next year. They should throw everything at the national league this year and try and win that for a start. I think Bradley, Cavanagh and Brennan would be an ideal full forward line. Lee and Bradley need to be on more regulary (injuries permitting)  this might help with their decision making and shooting. I like that big boy McNulty I think he can offer more in the middle. Very unlucky not to get a goal in the Meath game.

Dublins dominance won't last forever Cluxton is almost 38 and he's a huge part of their team. There is a lot to be optimistic about.

Cluxton could easily play until he's 42 though.

Just after watching a recording of the final again. The sacred cow that is Peter Harte had an opportunity to play in Mark Bradley in the left corner but instead swings his right foot at it and the ball goes harmlessly up in the air. A moment that just sums up everything that is wrong at the moment with Tyrone. The most overrated player ever!!

Everyone around me was crying out for Peter Harte to pass that ball into Mark Bradley. we really needed a goal when we were on top. also thought he was a bit greedy towards the end of the semi-final. apart from that I thought Peter Harte played well on Sunday.

Despite what others think, I thought Cathal McShane was decent. he showed for the ball and kicked a couple of points. Ok he took a potshot but plenty of others kicked wides too.

Meyler's push on Cooper that led to the 2nd goal seemed very naive especially when Cooper was surrounded by Tyrone players, think this could be Meyler's fourth season playing seniors so it's not as if he is inexperienced. Maybe the fact that he hadn't played since the Donegal game was a factor in this.

The Dubs once again did a number on Tyrone's big names. I was at the league game at the beginning of 2017 when Niall Sludden was outstanding against the Dubs in Croke Park. Unfortunately he hasn't been able to replicate that performance against the Dubs since.

If we can cut out the stupid mistakes and if the big players can get themselves on the ball more against Dublin then we will be there or thereabouts again next year.

Kilkenny MUST be man marked and hampsey is the man to do it. Cluxton also needs some special attention. If we can get those 2 rattled then we are half way there.

Armagh showed as far back in 2003 that Cluxton can be got at.

Jack McCaffrey's runs also need curtailed.

I'll tell ya, something is not right. Selling Dembele, Comper to be sold and Boyata. WTF and no signings. This has to be one of the worst transfer window I've ever witnessed at celtic. Unless celtic have 3 gems up their sleeve and they're keeping it quiet so no other club sneaks in before them then things are about to get bad. I seriously can't see BR standing for this, I know for a fact as he told me to my face that's why NL left as Lawell was selling his players and not replacing them...
I can tell u if Sevco get anything from Sundays game and Celtic do not have 2-3 great signings ready the support will go ballistic, you wanna hear them already on some of the their forums and the worst is yet to happen.

if Dembele goes and there's no decent signings, Rodgers will surely walk.

Funny, I have heard about another club that sent back tickets. Club membership probably isn't what it was in the days when Tyrone was expected to be competing in finals every couple of years and lots of people now buying online for earlier rounds as opposed to through the club.

Nonetheless, I drove through Cookstown, Stewartstown, Dungannon, Coalisland etc this week and there seems to little in the way of hype.  The Moy is well decked out, but apart from that, there doesn't seem to be the same interest.  You'd nearly think people didn't give a shit.

thought stewartstown is decked out ok. probably no different to the noughties. maybe your a hard man to please?.

Thought Dungannon Academy had a lot of poor/boring teachers back in the day. No idea what's it like now. Looking back a good few of them were definitely going through the motions.
