Has Rory Brennan not generally played wing half back for Tyrone? I wouldn't have him in corner back.

Early days yet lads, like hard to get up for a game like that yesterday it was grim as f**k in that swamp! Also Fermanagh and their supporters were going on like it was their ulster final!

I would have Morgan everyday over o'neill. There is no way O'Neills kickouts are better, maybe a better shot stopper but kickouts are crucial and Morgan is very safe on the ball.

McNamee will be playing full back but the 2 corners I think are all to play for. I gather he will have another look at Cassidy and Kiernan v top tier opposition. It will be a tough squad to cut down.

Can't wait for another year of Southfermanagh Slabber on this thing!

Rory Brennan generally has played wing half back for Tyrone but is this much different from playing corner back in the modern game? Not many teams bar Dublin leave 3 men inside so generally one of your corner backs will be out the pitch. For us this player is usually McCrory so I think it playing Brennan instead of him makes sense since Brennan offers alot more on the ball. Brennan is also well capable of a man marking job as he has shown on Ryan McHugh.

Aye fair enough, you're spot on. Injury permitting he has proved himself when it matters

Brennan much better all rounder

O'Neill was my preference a few years back but Morgan has improved massively while O'Neill has stayed the same, still probably the better shot stopper but The way the game has gone now, the Kickouts are a massive tactic and Morgan is far superior in this role and I now believe Morgan is better under the high ball

interesting match report in irish news today for donegal/monaghan game yesterday. both teams set up very attack minded. even monaghan played with a 3 man full forward line for most of the game. bonner came out and said after that he had no intention of going back to 13 or 14 men behind the ball.

You seriously must be the only person in Tyrone who would give one ounce of a shite about what Declan Bonner says.
That was never a square ball!!

Would you be from Clonoe by any chance bendyerback?
All this talk about how SO'N has transformed Tyrones attack and they score 0-08 against FERMANAGH!?

Itís not really a matter of where Iím from, I just think that McClure is possibly our best option and could accompany Colm Cavanagh very well in the middle of the park.
What Iíve seen on McKernan to date has been impressive. He has some engine in him and I would start him over McCrory and McCarron. Heís not afraid to go forward and returns back to his position quickly.
Itís early days yet lads, weíll know better after the first league game. We need to wait and see what type of game Tyrone are going to play. Iím hoping that itís not that defensive carry on that weíve become renowned for.

People on trying to talk about actual football and you're on spouting absolute dung! Quoting decky bonner? Decky Bonner is a poor manager. Everyone knows your position and they are sick of hearing ye.

Back to football, how many does harte roughly have to cut out of the panel? will he leave the moys boys out until that's over or do they count. There isn't rwally anyone who stands out as not making the cut atm

None I'd say. We have 5 out since last year - Cavanagh, McMahon x2,  Munroe and McCullagh and 4 in - Burns, McKernan, McDonnell, McLaughlin.

Munroe and Joe Mc both left the panel after the league last year so I don't think there is a need to cut anyone.

Would love to see Munroe back but can't see it unfotunately
