Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling
« on: February 22, 2019, 03:10:37 PM »
What do ye think of big Kennedy at MF?
I know he's new and still young but I've been disappointed by him so far but I know it's only February and he's been thrown in at the deep end with no recognized seasoned partner.

Good to see Skeet back in the subs but I still get the feeling Mickey is holding back his possible summer forwards until the summer.
I've already seen enough of Coney to think he'll be used at 11 later on.
Mickey knows we're in that chasing pack after Dublin and isn't gonna reveal too much this time of the year.

Has Ben McDonnell ever played at wing back before or did he just pick the first 15 that came into mind and let them choose where ever they want to play.
Judging by the way we've played so far I couldn't be arsed making the journey up from Dublin to watch more crab football.
Wonder how much Monaghan will use the mark this time and do Tyrone have a plan to stop it.
We seemed to have all sorts of problems with knowing what to do when a mark is called.
The defenders dont want to back away now as the player can play on and maybe go for a goal or if they stand and block him the ref can move it forward.

What's the odds on Morgan scoring another from play this week?

I love newbies

Doubt it, he took a huge hit and was totally unprovoked. Still he took one for the team and saved us a point.
He looks like he's kicked on a bit and has more composure and confidence now with the frees. He still attempts some very tough ones though.

Hound, we have a lot more issues that kicking a few wides. In all our games in 2019 we have struggled to get the ball into our forwards and make it stick. Teams are wise to our one dimensional tactic and so they fight blanket with a thicker tog quilt. Occasionally playing Petey Harte at FF has totally backfired in my eyes and I'd like to see Richie Donnelly back in there if fit.

A win this weekend and another v Cavan will have us sitting nicely mid table but Galway at home will be a tough one and Dubs away on 16th March will be another no show by us I'd say.

This game could be a real relegation battle with Tyrone facing Cavan next  whilst Monaghan have Kerry
Monaghan's home win against the Dubs could prove vital as I don't see us getting much out of Croker on the 16th March though Monaghan have to go to Kerry yet.

Tyrone really seem to be labouring since the start of the league and it's hard to know is it lack of fitness, style of play, no plan B as we try to run everything or some discontent within the panel. The easy thing to say is that it's only February and they don't give a fiddle about the league and its all about being fit for late July and August like Kerry, Mayo and the Dubs do every year.

Monaghan always raise their game against their neighbours and recently have been got over any fear of Tyrone when playing in Ulster. With a few new players brought in this year, Monaghan too will be very hopeful of winning back the Ango Celt as they're in the easier half of the draw again.

I'm curious to read people's different views on what are Dublin's advantages?
How much of them are public knowledge such as them receiving free food or vitamins etc?

How much more are they treated like professional sports men than other counties?
Are they offered jobs as coaches etc rather than them leaving for Aussie rules?

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?

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?
