Will we ever see Conor McKenna back playing Championship football for Tyrone.

I fully believe if he stiluck around we would have been in a few more All Ireland finals in the past number of years and possibly have won one.

Can't see it. It will only happen if he falls out of favour at Essedon and can't get another club, which is a long way off at the moment as he seems to be playing well.

As much as I would love to see it, he would need his head checked to give up a professional lifestyle to come home and live in Eglish

Fixed that.

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.

Given the amount of high quality and highly regarded coaches within Tyrone I am shocked at that appointment.

An outside coach. There goes the last pretence of an amateur set up doing it for the love of the game.

It's a very strange move, maybe I'm forgetting something but have we had outside men involved under Harte before?

Not surprised we have 2 outside men appointed, very few in Tyrone want anything to do with harte at this stage.

LOL, do you think that Peter Donnelly was doing it for free?

Madden knows his stuff and can certainly bring something to the set up.

He isnt a yes man which is what we have been crying out for

He most certainly is a YES man, that is why he got the job!!!!

The reason why Peter Donnelly and Stevie O’Neill were let go was down to the fact they were NOT yes men and didn’t conform to the MH regulations....

Not sure how well you know Madden or how many other set ups you have been close to when he was involved?

He certainly isnt a 'yes' man

Edit - you say Donnelly was let go because he isnt a yes man. If he had got the coin he asked for do you think he would be away from the set up?
