im not on here to gloat but i did say mc gleenan was the man for the tyrone job. the result wont matter a jot come august but injuries this early in year to established players like mc aliskey are avoidable.

I'd be fairly confident that Tyrone will still be standing long after Mattie has packed away the cones for the year.
That was never a square ball!!

I'm just happy enough in myself to be honest and won't be losing my shit over a loss in the McKenna Cup in January. Tyrone get stick on here for winning McKenna Cups then get stick for losing a game in it. I tend to keep things on a more even keel. Believe it or not, not everyone agrees with your apolyptic view of Tyrone football under Mickey Harte. He's kept us competitive during a time of huge player turn over. Look at Armagh, Down, Meath, Galway, Cork, Derry and tell me that their chopping and changing of managers is a better strategy than we have employed in Tyrone. I think Tyrone have made progress in the past few years and think we aren't far away from a return to Croke Park in September, you clearly don't. That's why I'm a little more calm than you tonight.

There's some time between January 8th-3rd Week in September. Player Burnout and Managers "Common Sense" should prevail -

How many of the big teams played any 1st teamers today??

Donegal played their U-21. Mayo had 10 Debutants as their All Ireland team is on Holidays in SA. Dublin had a Full reserve team out. Kerry had 1 player from their Munster Final

Tyrone started with 9 Established Players and a Further 5 on the Bench

Madness

Monaghan had a fair few starting, the 3 big counties were away on their team holidays.

I can see the value of having a few established players playing to help out the fringe players and newcomers. However the amount that played today i felt was a bit much. We are well aware of what Ronan McNabb, Tiernan McCann, Conor McAliskey etc bring to the table, why not give plenty of game time to Niall McKenna Ronan McHugh etc. They will probably start next saturday night but at the expense of McCullagh McClure etc. I dont see why they all dont get as much time as possible to impress and this might cut down on them trying to do to much to catch the eye in the time they have, as i felt happened today.

I'd give Niall Morgan another go this year. He never misses by much, the ball agonisingly glides wide as it has too much air.

Too much air between your ears more like! lol

ďItís the worst possible news that I could have hoped forĒ.  The words of Connor McAliskey tonight after it was confirmed that he has torn both the MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) and ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament).  McAliskey received the bad news tonight following an MRI scan this afternoon.  Heís expected to meet with a knee surgeon in the coming days to talk through the extent of the damage.  ďAt this stage it doesnít look good.  Itís tough to take because Iíd so much to look forward to with the Clonoe and Tyrone.  Now Iíll just have to dig in and work hard to get back to full fitnessĒ.

Best of luck to him, he'll be a big loss

Hope he takes his time coming back and doesn't rush it, Conor Clarke should be a cautionary tale for any player rushing their comeback from a cruciate injury.

We've had a good few cruciate injuries in recent years - O'Neill, McNabb, Clarke and McAliskey now.
