Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

Imagine when he leaves and we drop down to the same level as some of the other previously successful counties like Down, Armagh or Derry have done in recent years. There will be some yapping done then, god help who is in charge at that point. The issue is we hit a golden generation of players in the 2000s and combined it with a great manager leading to unbelievable success for a county like Tyrone. This has lead to supporters being spoilt.

We have still did well in recent years and 25 plus counties would love to be in our position. It's easy when a county is doing less well after such success to have someone to blame like the manager. It's an easy excuse for not supporting the team when they aren't winning All Irelands.

My God that is some rant. I have nothing personal against Mickey and I understand we got to an All Ireland last year but let's face facts our run to the final last year was hardly laced with outstanding victories against top opposition. We were beat 3 times in the champions in one year....for what it's worth it is my opinion that the time for change was a few years ago and we have got ourselves into a position that the management of our county has become a full time post in which we have allowed people to become dependent  on to allow them to earn a living and it becomes very difficult for either party to let go. It is only an opinion don't shoot me for it.

We did indeed lose 3 times in the championship. Twice of them were against Dublin who are possibly the greatest teams ever and resources we could only dream about. The other against Monaghan was reversed later in the championship in a crucial knockout game.

I don't see a change in management improving our fortunes, I'd imagine it'll have the opposite effect. It's get a few more behind the team in the short term but once results start going badly they'll turn on the new management fairly quickly.

I personally thought our victory in Donegal last year was our best championship win in ten years. Away to the ulster champions with an excellent home record and 3 or 4 points down at half time, it was a great result. It's probably unfair on Monaghan that people don't respect the victory against them enough in the semi final.

I think anyone who looks objectively at the Tyrone players and resources available and compares it to what we have done in the last 3/4 years would say the management is doing a good job at getting the best out of the team. Is it enough to win the All Ireland? Probably not unless we find something extra, but I'm not sure that's down to management.

You've mentioned limited resources a few times now. 4 different groups have won all Ireland titles in 04, 08, 10 and 15. A lot of counties would be fairly pleased with those limited resources. Or maybe Mickey was responsible for those wins too

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.

It seemed abit of a shit show in general, but our record in Killarney is woeful and with the sigerson and lack of continuity in the squad general, this should be ironed out after the sigerson and I would bet tyrone taking this Kerry team in Croker later on in the summer. But it is the simple execution of skills and concentration absent - the line balls going back, the kickout not being taken from the right spot - which has happened v Donegal, v Monaghan and Dublin now so Morgan needs to concentrate on being a Keeper first and stay behind the 21 as he is a liability at present with more reasonability.

It would seem slightly presumptuous to blame / name a goalkeeper for a loss in a game which your basically saying you didn't see, in a game that same goalkeeper did not concede any goals.

Tyrone were beat because they scored 7 pts. You won't ever win a game of Gaelic Football with a score of 0-7 pts. There is also the fact that Kerry are quite good at Gaelic Football under their new manager, at home, against a team they have had a modern dislike for. Maybe they just wanted it more than Tyrone?

well that's just a factually incorrect statement isn't it?

We'll see how many teams win games over the next few weeks in all divisions in the NFL with a max score of 0-07 and come back to this. I'd say you'll get maybe 1.....2 at a push out of about 100 games.

There may well be none that win a game with 0-07.  I'm just challenging the statement that you wont ever win a game with 0.07 - that is not correct is it?  You wont win many games with 0.07 would be accurate.

Busy day today lads ?  ::)

Was disappointed when I heard the result. Thought Tyrone would have gave it more of a rattle. Early doors I know, but they looked good in McKenna Cup and with Kerry under new management thought they would've laid down an early marker.

A new manager seems to help things alright

Sekibanki your post makes no sense, well not to me anyways.
Regarding Tyrone I think we all just need to keep taking the tablets. It will be interesting to see how many teams score 7 points or less in a div 1 game this year

Is Mickey making a cut then this week for the league? Just throwing out a list of potential candidates for the chop:
Matthew Murnaghan
Liam Rafferty
Aidy McCrory
Ben McDonnell
Ryan Gray
Ruairi Sludden
Ciaran McLaughlin
Darragh Canavan
Ronan O'Neill
Michael Cassidy
Conall McCann

I'd imagine from the newcomers/returnees this year - Kennedy, Grugan, Gallen, Coney and McCurry will all keep their place.

From the above list - Murnaghan and Gray will be gone more than likely (still under 20s), Sludden maybe too, O'Neill as well, hard to know about the Errigal lads - personally I would keep Canavan and get rid of McDonnell & McCrory.
Rafferty has done enough to stay, not convinced by McLaughlin as county level, Conall McCann & Cassidy will stay too I think.

I don't think either Mc Donnell or Mc Laughlin will be cut, Both have the raw materials to be good county footballers.

How much stock can we really put in an average Bellaghy side winning an unofficial minor tournament? A lot of people getting carried away.
It is an official competition sanctioned by the Ulster council. Bellaghy thoroughly outplayed every side they met in Ulster and their closest challengers were from within our own county. I think this is encouraging.
I notice in todays paper that this competition is classed as a tournament

I think it is. Same as the Screen hurling one. Not recognised as official competitions by GAA.
Whether it is a tournament or a competition, whether it is sanctioned or not, it is the pinnacle of club u18 football in Ulster and every club would love to win it

What's peoples thoughts on Ryan Daly leaving Tyrone Coaching staff, unbelievable that they let him leave, such a great talent and I really think the clubs should make their point heard on Tuesday night, penny pinching again......

Well Ryan how's things?
Nah don't think its Ryan. More than likely it's another of the Ardboe Jeremiah O split personalities

Murnaghan - Kilyclogher
Rafferty - Galbally
Grugan - Omagh
Gallen - Agh'yarn
Coney - Ardbo
Mc Curry - Edendork

Just wondering what you think of this guy. Some of his podcasts are really brilliant. Comes across as really intelligent, but what’s with the plastic bag over the face etc?  Anyone know anything about him at all?  Seems to talk some really socio economic sense.

I read about half of his book.

Fcuked up
