Mccalliskey was the second top championship scorer and the second top scorer from play. Didn't even get an all star nom so overlooked is he. Class forward.

Dublin being a much better team lost you that final not naivety. No shame in it.

15 wides cost Tyrone dearly. Didn't Dublin have none in the second half or something ridiculous?

Didn't rock kick a few wides from frees early on?

A last 4 slot is great and consistently getting there is great.

But consistently getting beat by kerry mayo and Dublin ain't so hot. And that's been happening since 2009.

It's happening to others too!

And? Should we not be aiming to be better than "others"?

Who's the others? Mayo? They've done much more the last ten years than us.

Ach i don't think it taints it myself. It's one thing in a five year championship winning campaign we're talking about. Unreal team.

Tbh home advantage taints it more than money and the likes of this for me every time.

Obviously fancy the dubs to win but reckon this could be another mayo cracker. Hopefully it's more mayo V Donegal than mayo V Kerry. Dublin have pretty much had a 3 week break compared to mayo one and that's the key here.

Would love mayo to do it but just can't see it.

To be honest I've never been one for calling time on Harte. At least never too loudly. He's been magnificent for us and his contribution to Tyrone football can never be forgotten. That said if we can't beat a very young inexperienced kerry side with a team he's built over a decade then it just might be time. We've had a great few years in terms of progressing late into the summer and I'd always be careful of what you wish for. But this game is a must win for me and if we lose it could set us well back.

Donegal are getting stronger, Kerry are a coming team, Dublin won't go away. If we lose this then really and truly we can't claim to be any better than 4th best in the country this year. That's a step back for me.

I think that's harsh on mccalliskey. He was our top scorer by a mile last year and should have had an all star nomination. He's performed very well when played this year.

Enda McGinley lays it on the line for this current Tyrone squad today
Reminding that Tyrone haven’t beat any of the big 3 Dublin, Kerry or Mayo since 2008 in championship
“Essentially this means that Tyrone can be viewed as good, but not ‘top level’ good”
Massive opportunity on Sunday to put this right

He's absolutely right tho. The best teams we've beaten in the last ten years are Donegal and Monaghan. Kerry, Mayo and Dublin have had the better of us and despite this being three semis in a row we've dodged them or been beat by them. We need to win this game big time to get that monkey off our back. Do that and the belief will skyrocket that we can beat dublin (or maybe mayo) in the final.

As for the team I'd just like to see Skeet starting up with McShane. I think Donnelly would be my first choice up there but can't see Mickey taking that chance from the get go. Let Skeet up and make a switch every so often with Harte and Mattie. Keep kerry guessing because all three offer something completely different.

Hopefully we can be better disaplined in defense and not give that edjit reffing cause to ride us again. That will be the winning and losing of this game for me.

Deegan worries me more than Clifford to be honest. That f**ker reffing is 5 points worth to kerry.

Maybe you should have a look after the game on sky then because you're obviously only used to the old bullshit server by brolly and Co on RTÉ for the last god knows how long. Insightful analysis. Point out tactical situations that you simply can't see on TV yourself. The coverage apart from dick clerking is fantastic.

That second half today was just a fantastic advert for football. I was glued to it.

The mayo lad that flicked the ball to himself six inches from his goal line in extra time must have balls of steel. I was pissing myself laughing at the audacity.
Thought that was absolutely brilliant and have watched it a few times since  and it seemed to Paul Walsh the most natural thing in the world to do.Absoulte class

Fearless youth. Minor football is class to watch at times for that very reason.

Savage quality pictures from tg4 on YouTube too. Just shows what you can do on a limited budget.

A chance to play or watch a game in somewhere like Thurles is a damn nice incentive.
