I take back what I said about the price of the game, I would have paid it ten times over!

Fair play to the Clarke's winning the cup after 64 years, and doing it in some fashion, there's only so many times you can go to the well before it runs dry but by God do they have a deep well up on the hill of O'Neill.

Some excellent individual performances from the dungannon men, Matty Walsh had an amazing game to nulify Matty Donnelly, between Mark McKearney and the Jones brothers they covered every blade of grass twice over. Big Paudie and Oran Mallon where brilliant in the middle third with their high fielding and driving runs into the Trillick defence. As usual they got a huge impact from their bench with Paddy Quinn and Keifer both having great games and getting scores at crucial times. Finally, big Donaghey if there's one thing this fella doesn't lack is confidence, things weren't going his way with a few wides but he continued to keep plugging away at the whole thing and got a few scores and played some good ball into Quinn and Kiefer when they came on.

With that being said Trillick also had some outstanding preformances, Lee Brennans goal was as good a bit of individual creativity as we will see, young Ciaran Daly was very impressive for a 17 year old. When Lee kicked the equaliser at the end of extra time, the high press that Trillick went with put Dungannon under some pressure, the TV camera picked it up really well they had 5 players pushed up inside the 13 meter line hunting the ball with everything they had.

Regarding the penalities, TTM in their live video where reporting that had Barker missed the county board where ready to pull it before going to a third round. My only thought about penalties is that it is difficult enough to take one never mind having to step up to kick a second time, would it not be more viable to go with the 6th kicker etc. when it goes to sudden death?

Congrats to the Clarke's, another poster said how they had made an occasion out of the final and what an occasion it was! Enjoy

£8 to watch intermediate final tonight & £10 for Trillick v The Clarke’s tomorrow, £2 to buy a digital programme. I can’t imagine many outside of the clubs involved will purchase the programme, but I’m sure there will be a lot tuned into both games over the weekend and £18 is surely a bit much to ask.

Disappointing not to see the new reserve structures go ahead. Looking at the above numbers of games not fulfilled it is clearly a broken system, I can't possibly see why we would want to continue with it.

The strangest thing about the current system is playing in the league your senior team is in. For example, Aghaloo won the junior league last year however their reserves finished 13th in the Division 3 reserve league, how does it make any sense that they should also move up to Division 2 reserve football?

Kildress reserves finished top of Division 3, unbeaten in the league, the following year still playing in Division 3.
Cookstown and Eglish reserves both finished 6th in their respective leagues, but as a result of their senior team's relegations they must both play in lower leagues the following year.

Has anyone heard if they are changing structures of reserve leagues? Had heard there was talk of Senior A/B, Inter A/B, Junior A/B, basically East and West leagues at each level. Has this been passed or confirmed?

With U'20s to be wrapped up in March should leave for a better league schedule this coming year, here's hoping.

I expect most club footballers have the ambition to play senior football, I can't think of too many who take the easy way out and do it by transferring clubs! Sounds like the man in question is very much about himself, BG_Gael.

Very fair comment. I was only going on the original clogher poster who said it was a transfer that didn't work out.

If my memory serves right Augher were an intermediate team when Darragh joined? So I don't think he went directly to playing Division 1 football from Division 3. Easy way or not isnt my point though. The clogher poster has said it hasn't worked out, but clearly it has and they just are bitter or have sour grapes with it.

I wonder how bitter they are about players who have transferred the other way and would they say their transfers have worked out?

He left to join Augher directly after they won their play offs to go up to senior. Yes he did play a few years of senior football and a few in intermediate, with no medals to show for it. The Clogher players have a junior league medal to look back on and I am sure most would agree it’s a much greater achievement to win a junior league with your club than jumping ship to play a higher level of football and winning a few individual awards along the way. With regards to calling it a failed transfer, this year Clogher finished higher in intermediate league, beat Augher and he has won no medals with his club(s), most certainly wouldn’t call it a success story anyway.

There will still be issues but the fixtures should be less of a problem next year. As Tyrone aren't in the preliminary round in ulster next year, there is 7 weekends between the last round of NFL (assuming Tyrone don't make the final) and the first round game v Donegal. That should allow 6 league fixtures to be played.

If Tyrone lose that and enter the qualifiers there potentially wont be another Tyrone game until near the end of June allowing 3 more games to be played. Even if they win I think there is still another 1 or 2 slots in between county games to get matches played. There also isn't any u20 county matches during the summer next year so the majority of starred games can be saved for then.

If all goes to plan and fixtures done properly most if not all of the regular league games should be wrapped up pre championship next year. If Tyrone lose to Donegal in ulster there definitely won't be any excuses for them not to be.

With all this considered and a master fixture schedule released from the GAA with all weekends/dates known should it not be possible for our county board to do the same? Release a fixture planner, obviously, there would need to be different versions with possible outcomes but surely some sense of when games are going to be played is better than none for the club players.

Tyrone county master fixtures planner could look like:
A) Tyrone beaten in the first round of Ulster knocked out in super 8's or beaten in All-Ireland semi. 
B) Ulster champions knocked out in super 8's or beaten in All-Ireland semi.
C) Tyrone beaten in first round of Ulster, All-Ireland finalists.
D) Ulster champions, All-Ireland finalist.

4 different schedules are obviously a lot of work, but most weekends will overlap with only some tweaking involved. All Ireland semi-final is usually a week after super 8's so no need for different plans in place there.

Great piece on Ronan McNamee in today's Irish News.

Excellent article, it just goes to show you never know what goes on with lads. You see fellas lambasting players on here with no regards to what is going on behind the scenes, particularly with regards boys walking away from squads, at that stage in someones life football just might not be for them. - on that note for some boys football and team environment can be an escape.

Anyway, brilliant article on Ronan, complete honesty and you can see what a genuine fella he is with respect for those around him, particularly his Mother and Father. Hopefully reading his story can be a light at the end of the tunnel for someone reading.

Maybe a case of what goes around comes around for Augher. I heard they refused to change their derby with Clogher, their request was to play it at any other time that didn't clash with the full round of fixtures, later in the evening or Friday night. So I suppose how do you expect to be accommodated when you have refused to be accommodating previously yourself.

What way do we see things working out in Division 2 this weekend?

Pomeroy v Greencastle
Augher v Strabane
Beragh v Loughmacrory
Galbally v Cookstown
Gortin v Clogher
Moortown v Newtownstewart
Owen Roes v Stewartstown
Aghyaran v Urney

At the top: Galbally at home to Cookstown, a defeat for Fr. Rocks will see them in relegation play offs, can't see anything other than a Galbally win here.
Beragh v Lough, if Lough were told at the start of the year they need a win v Beragh on last day to secure senior football next year they would have took it, I am sure there must be some nerves in the camp this week and Beragh would love to spoil the party, expecting Lough win.
Pomeroy v Greencastle on Saturday afternoon, Pomeroy win here to move into second place and leave the pressure on for Lough the next day.

At the bottom: Urney are already gone and seem to have thrown the towel in.
Newton playing Moortown, possibly in Garvaghy mid week or Friday? Correct me if I am wrong here, but both Strabane and Stewartstown have both beated Newton so even if Newton are level on 10 points with either of them they are in relegation play off anyway based on head to head?
Strabane v Augher, last few weeks would suggest that Augher have no interest in play offs, very strange considering a few weeks back they were in a position to play Clogher again in play offs, maybe they didn't fancy that possibility. Strabane will likely pick up easy points here.
Owen Roes v Stewartstown, Owen Roes win here leaving Stewartstown possibly level with Newton, although they won the head to head which should see them safe?

In the middle:
Owen Roes and Clogher guaranteed to play each other in play offs with what looks like no other team looking to fill the final spot? Possible teams to take it are Augher, Greencastle, Gortin, Moortown and Beragh, with all possibly going to get beat it would leave Augher staying in 6th place with an away trip to Pomeroy or Loughmacrory.

There is the the very very outside possibility of four teams finishing on 10 points would leave a tricky situation.

Overall I  am going for, Gallbally winners, Lough runners up, Pomeroy v Augher, Clogher v Owen Roes, Newton v Cookstown.

Lads, Tyrone poster here. Just wondering how many attended your county final? Seen some highlights and it looked a huge crowd.

Neither team have a change strip? Looked very similar

Couldn't understand this myself, both strips very similar. Surely county board should have this considered before hand with one team switching.

What about Harry Og Conlon- he didn't feature for Edendork in any of their championship games.
Is he injured? He was in around County panels at one stage

Mark McReynolds also?

Harry Og is teaching in the Middle East, Dubai or Abu Dhabi. Mark is teaching in Scotland, although he has traveled home in other years, not sure why this has changed this year. Would have made a huge difference to Edendork had they Niall Morgan available out the field.

Does anyone know has Jonny Davis been ratified yet? If so, will he be working exclusively along with senior squad or in a role that involves working with academy/minors/u20s?

With regards to Madden, was there other candidates? Was he approached or any idea where the link is? I cant phantom why or how Mickey Harte could brain storm and think, yes this is him this is the guy I want.
