Was the referee as bad as Tyrones official twitter seemed to insinuate?
Only saw the last 15-20 minutes. Some mind boggling decisions. He blew Ronan O’Neill for overcarrying as he got through on goal. How he came by that decision is anyone’s guess.

O'Neill may have overcarried and it was harsh in terms of what is generally let go in terms of steps but the thing was he was fouled on about 3 separate occasions as he made his way toward goal.

I didn't think the referee performance was too bad though but maybe that's more an indication of how little Monaghan offered and how comfortable Tyrone were all night.

The following players saw no action in the McKenna Cup:

Hampsey
Harte
M Donnelly
R Donnelly
McClure
Loughran
Bradley

3 of those are guaranteed starters and Bradley and R Donnelly would be strongly pushing for spots too.

Rory Brennan was not in the 26 for the last two games and Coney and McHugh were pulled from the squad last night, also no sign of Brian Kennedy and Mulgrew came off early with what looked like some sort of injury, we also know McKernan will miss the most part of the league.

So all in all we are probably down about 10 players or more for the opener against Meath, it's a good opportunity for some of the new guys and some of the players on the fringes in the past few seasons to make their claim. From what I've seen from the new call ups this year, they seem to be capable of holding their own, Quinn and Grimes are just out of u20 so I suspect they are unlikely to feature a whole pile this year and are more ones for the future.

Usually Harte would trim the squad after the McKenna Cup but with so many absentees this year I'd imagine he'll probably wait until the cessation of the league to look at it again.
Are Mattie Donnelly, Hampsey and Loughran long term injuries? Will they be available for any of the league games?

Mattie will be doing well to be back for the Championship. Loughran also underwent surgery do not sure on his timeline. Haven't heard anything on Hampsey officially but I think it's been said that he had surgery on an pelvic issue that was causing him some problems lad year.

It was a strong enough side out last night for Monaghan but they wouldn't have the quality of cover that Tyrone have.

Two wins in our first two games should have us well on the way to safety.

the goal was on

Monaghan will have mc Manus playing which is always a massive plus for them. Add the 2 Hughes brothers, Fintan Kelly, jack mc Carron, mc Anespie , o Connell from start and it should improve them greatly. Tyrone I don’t think will be adding as much quality to what was there last night.

St Mary's beat after Extra time today by UCD. That leaves Rafferty and Kilpatrick free and available for Saturday night. Hopefully see the two of them get plenty of game time during the league, could have a big impact this year.

Where has the Harte agenda gone now. Funny how things change when silverware is won.

Tyrone had 3 of there best players not even on the squad.
Plus you can only beat whats in front of you fella. Lets call a spade a spade, silverware is silverware at the end of the day.

Anyway, now the McKenna Cup is done with moving to more important matters.

Not to be too dramatic, but Sunday v Meath surely must win considering the make up of D1 this year? Anything less and it's panic stations early on.

Wise up! I have given up giving out about him because nothing will change. Thsi year will be a disaster I have no doubt, there is no way that it can be said we are moving in a forward direction!
