Still Trillick and Errigal game to be played but I think a few players have really stood out in the championship this season and have fairly decent recent history with Tyrone underage, university etc that I’d like to see called up.
Daniel Kerr, Ronan Nugent, Conor Quinn - Galbally
Conn Kilpatrick, Paul Donaghy - Edendork
Niall Kelly, Darragh Canavan - Errigal
Tiernan Quinn - Coalisland
Ruairi Kelly - Trillick
Tiernan Murray - Carrickmore
Conall Grimes - Loughmacrory
Obviously that’s a lot of players to call up, and Tyrone U20s from last year and this year coming will likely get call ups in the future. But think a clear out of the squad players is needed and the majority of them would offer an improvement on those players who are not seeing game time outside of the mckenna cup, early league games.

Agree with most of these although Kerr, Donaghy and Murray are probably behind the likes of Lee Brennan and Mark Bradley who could both be back in along with Canavan, McCurry, McAliskey etc. But no harm to give them a run out in McKenna Cup.
Was Ryan Gray on the squad this year? He has a bit of size about him and is good for 2/3 points a game for Trillick at the moment.
Eoghan Murray from Tattyreagh? Not sure how he got on in Div 1 this year but was excellent last year in Intermediate.

Mills being left on Liam Rafferty was a bizarre decision. Couldn't get near him (4 from play including winner) eventually had to kick out at him and get a black card. Kilpatrick and McGuckin too busy shouting at the ref, a blind man could see that needed changed.

Galbally defence was wide open when Frank Burns went inside and Pomeroy ran at them. Could easily have had an extra couple of goals. But Galbally better all round team.

Aghaloo making a show of themselves lately.. not fielding in the last 2 league games and getting 5 red cards in a championship game.
Now looking £500 for a brick on the new clubhouse.

Former Antrim star and highly regarded coach Kevin Madden is to join Tyrone’s backroom team.

Confirming Madden’s arrival on the Tyrone scene, manager Mickey Harte said: “He’s joining our backroom team for the 2020 season and we’re all very pleased to have him.

“He’s a broad-based coach, he coaches the entirety of the game, and he has managed clubs himself.

“He knows what the game is all about, and what he writes endorses that view, and we’re delighted to have him.”

Madden has been in high demand as a coach at club and county level in recent seasons.

He spent two years as assistant to Derry boss Damian Cassidy, and at club level, worked with former Antrim boss Liam Bradley at Glenullin, winning a Derry SFC title in 2007.

He has also coached Dungiven in Derry, and managed Creggan to last year’s Antrim SFC final.

Peter Harte was very good yesterday. Canavan very lively in the first half. Errigal were in total control throughout. Omagh very deep in the first half with the breeze - couldn't understand why Barry Tierney was playing in the full back line, not long after he pushed up he created Omagh's goal but game was over at that stage.

More competitive action in today's matches. Big win for the Thirds. Sounded like Kildress collapsed totally - didn't score in the last 30 mins (11 mins injury time)

Killeeshil v Brocagh
Eskra v Errigal III
Drumragh v Kildress/Derrytresk
Glenelly v Rock/Aghaloo

Has yr man Meegan, who playes for Ballymacnab in Armagh ever come into consideration? Friends down that way tell me he's a very decent midfielder.

I beleive he transferred form Eskra, but is certainly at the top table in term of Armagh club football

He's in his 30s now. Unfortunately for him when in Tyrone he was playing for Eskra.

Well he won an Intermediate Championship when he was playing for Eskra.
By all accounts he has played well for Ballymacnab but was nowhere near county standard 5 years ago never mind now.

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?

In dontfoul stats - Kickouts and Scoring Efficiency were the main difference in last years final.
Tyrone actually turned over Dublin 23 times, whereas Dublin only turned over us 13 times.

Dublin won 29 of their 31 kickouts. Think both were lost around the 15 minute mark when Tyrone were on top.
Tyrone only won 17 of their 24.

Dublin scored 2-17 from 32 shots.
Tyrone 1-14 from 30 shots.

McAliskey to me although he had a great year last year, hasn't done a huge amount this year - obviously the injury is part of that. He did look lively against Dublin and took some good scores.

McKernan i thought played particularly well in Roscommon, put in a few strong tackles and dispossessed the opposition. Also set-up a goal against Kildare and the key one against Cork.
He was roasted by Brennan in the Donegal game and did make a mistake by rushing out against Cork for their 2nd goal.
Not much between him and Cassidy for a half back place.

1. Morgan
2. HP McGeary
3. McNamee
4. Brennan
5. McKernan
6. K McGeary
7. Burns
8. Kennedy
9. Cavanagh
10. Meyler
11. Sludden
12. R. Donnelly
13. McShane
14. M. Donnelly
15. Harte

The match-ups I see for the 5 main Kerry forwards are Hugh Pat on Geaney, McNamee on Clifford, Brennan on Spillane
Meyler on O'Brien, K McGeary or McKernan on Sean O'Shea.
Think Hugh Pat will start as Hampsey doesn't look comfortable in the full back line at the moment. Cassidy I think may come into the half back line again but it is tight between him and McKernan. If Cassidy does I can see him picking up O'Brien with Meyler going on to O'Shea.
Hampsey and McCann are capable subs to bring in.

Cavanagh to do the usual sweeping role. Burns to help out also.
Kennedy to stick to Moran - if possible. Moran is their key player. The amount of ball he gets on and the forward momentum he gives them with his kick passing is massive. If Kennesy is struggling then one of our half backs on the bench should replace him and do a marking job.

Sludden, Burns, Meyler to link the play with Peter further up in the half forward line. Expect Tom O'Sullivan to pick Peter up.

I think there is enough evidence that Mattie Donnelly is most effective this year in the full forward line. If we can't get the ball up to him and McShane then yes he can come out around half forward. But don't think he should be slogging back in his own half back line - we are relatively strong in that area.

Tough one between Richie and McCurry, personally i would go with Richie (with Mattie inside) and leave McCurry as an impact sub.

That leaves on the bench (wouldn't be surprised or disappointed really if any of these start):
T. McCann

We have real options and just hope we can put together a performance for 70 minutes. We have had two dire first halves this year against Donegal and Cork, only scoring 5 points. Can't afford that on Sunday.
