Hard to tell who’s worse in this game. Awful awful stuff on show.

Not having that. Fermanagh are playing very efficiently.

Armagh absolutely horrendous.

Efficient in defence maybe. Very wasteful going forward.

Armagh averaging a score every 10 minutes against Fermanagh.

It’s an absolutely shocking indictment of whatever it is they do in training.

If those lads had played club football only the past 3 months and were literally gathered up this morning, they would perform better than this.

That’s the problem.....they’re not getting club football.

Armagh tackling is so indisciplined. Costing them big time. Too many cheap frees when Fermanagh are under pressure.

Fermanagh could well throw it away right enough. Not sure they have the composure to see it out.

Armagh are still a bit fragile. Fermanagh could pull it off.
The general level in Ulster has come back a bit if Tyrone are deemed the best. It could be interesting this year. There is no outstanding team really.
It would be amazing if Fermanagh could win the Anglo Celt.

Tyrone were head and shoulders above everyone else in Ulster last year. Monaghan took down Dublin. There’s 2 teams way ahead of the pack.

What is the story with Strabane this year? Look to be on a terrible run.

Will the intake at Lower and Upper sixth really change that much though?

Hard to tell really.

Of the 3 schools that amalgamated:

- 1 was all girl (so wouldn't factor into the MacRory team anyway)
- 1 (St Pauls) had no pupils at MacRory age - they all had to transfer after GCSE
- 1 was St Michaels, which would have had all the MacRory age pupils - including some transfers from St Pauls

So it wasn't like the St Ronans amalgamation suddenly meant that had a massive increase in MacRory age players to pick from.

Now with SR being all ability - you might well retain pupils who would have previously left St Pauls after GCSE and not gone to St Michaels, however you will also always have fellas who leave after GCSE anyway and mix in parents who want thier children to have a grammar education and will send them to Newry etc instead (which is already happening).

So, possibly a small increase in MacRory eligible players, but not as big as people might think.....

Might as well get this started.....the 2 favourites play each other in the QF....will Monaghan build on their league success or will Tyrone bring a much better game to this one....

Bar the odd outlier Tyrone have usually had Monaghan’s number in the championship this past 10-15 years. Any reason it will be different this time around?

Sickening arrogance.

Out of curiosity....how is that arrogant?

Monaghan have beaten Tyrone once in the Championship over the last 15 years and Tyrone have won the last 2 Ulster Titles....

Seems like Mattie Donnelly was allowed the freedom of the pitch today, class player like that needs more attention ffs. Parsons seemed to be his man but looked like he struggled (from the highlights)

Andy should get 12 weeks but will probably get off as the ref dealt with it. Cavanagh's black shouldn't have been anything. Boyle's first was probably a red. Tyrone player's red was a very dirty challenge

Probably a red? Seriously? Every bit as bad if not worse than the McNulty / Keegan one

Unbelievable that Boyle escaped a red card. If McNulty was sent off for the Keegan challenge then there was no justification for Boyle only getting a yellow.

Just finished watching LadyBird. There's an hour and a half of my life I'll never get back. Load of shite.

Looks shit. Tempted to watch the shape of water but could also be a waste of time.

Have to agree that LadyBird was awful. An hour and a half of meandering, unfunny dross. Typical Hollywood up it's own hole movie.

It was interesting listening to ShoutSport this moring on the drive to work. Much was being made of Wengers myopia when it has come to buying DM players, especially after having had great results with Petit and Silva playing that role so well.

The usual suspects were defending Wenger saying the players just are not out there, but that's patently bullsh*t. Kante was the obvious miss, especially given he was another one Wenger 'supposedly' had been scouting, but there are plenty of options available and at a range of prices.

If he was prepared to spend £35mill on Xhaka, who doesn't seem to be actually good at any MF role, then he could easily have bought a top class DM instead.

Equally the £50+million spent on PEA could have been repurposed more effectively.

Hopefully the Dortmund magic will start to pay dividends in the trasnfer market,  but there is little point bringing in good players if they are not being coached or utilised effectively.

Wenger's time is up, someone with modern tactical nous and an ability to improve players is needed. Someone with a ruthless streak who won't keep giving 5/10 footballers chance after chance after chance.

Harte definitely rattled by some pretty straightforward questioning.

All Sidebottom had to do when Harte was going on about these great point totals Tyrone were racking up before they met Dublin was ask....'fair enough Mickey, so when was the last time you beat Dublin, Mayo or Kerry in the Championship playing that style of football?' 'Do you really think serving up the same again will result in any different outcome against those three come semi final time?'

The only decent results we have had since 2008 in the championship have been v Donegal and v Monaghan. That's it.

Cork, Dublin, Armagh, Mayo and Kerry have all put us out since then, with only 2016 being anywY close. Even then we spent the last 15 min of a 1 point game playing defensive shite and not pushing up trying to get anything.

So I can't see how these tactics are doing anything for us when it comes to winning an all Ireland.

Now maybe it's because we just don't have the players and Harte is going this way to try and keep us somewhat competitive.  We definitely don't have a good enough forward unit, we have (bar Brennan) no reliable free taker and when we opened up v Kildare and last night our defence was found wanting. So if Harte is cutting cloth to suit that's ok, but no reason to take the head off Sidebottom for what were legitimate questions.
