I heard Darragh Canavan isn't playing for the u20's this year and will be concentrating on club minor football instead, can anyone confirm this? If true this is arguably a smart move given he still has two years left at that grade. It will be interesting to see if he plays any part for Errigal seniors as the year progresses. Remember last year they used Peter Og McCartan (the same age then as Canavan is this year) as an impact sub throughout the championship to good effect.
Peter Og was more developed physically.Not sure if young Canavan has the physical build to play senior football yet.

Peter Og is physically stronger. His boxing training stands by him. A great impact sub for Errigal last year, but they panicked in the final an introduced him to early and he didn't have the desired effect. he might be a more permanent fixture this year I'd imagine.

Sean Cavanagh's damning assessment of Mickey Harte's 'autocratic' style of management.
Autocratic: adjective:
relating to a ruler who has absolute power. Taking no account of other people's wishes or opinions; domineering.

Read his IV in the Irish News. Cavanagh goes Nuclear should be the headline. A damming assessment of MH and his managerial style.

"I'm the cream of the crop, I rise to the top
I never eat a pig, 'cause a pig is a cop
Or better yet a Terminator, like Arnold Schwarzanegger
Try to play me out like, as if my name was Sega."
You've put it in my head now lol

These comments below are exactly what plenty of posters here have been saying for some time. Startling to read them from Sean Mor. Mickey's latest comments on last year are worrying too, once more complaining that there was too much focus on the Dublin game and that people are disregarding how successful the system was in other championship games last year. The opposition was average in the other games and Tyrone winning those games comfortably was no reflection on the system. The ultra defensive system was clearly employed to try and beat the best teams and failed miserably - within 5 minutes - on the one occasion Tyrone were up against a strong team. That's why people focus on it. And while Dublin and Mayo pull a lot of men back, that doesn't mean they were playing the same style we were. Really have to hope he doesn't actually believe this stuff that he comes out with.

Good luck to the team on Sunday, hopefully we stick with the rather more expansive approach seen in the league rather than reverting to type.

His former team-mate Conor Gormley was firm in his belief that the Red Hand are lacking marquee forwards but Cavanagh disagrees and feels many quality attackers have gone by the wayside as a result of the system employed, name-checking the likes of Ronan O'Neill, Darren McCurry, Kyle Coney and Niall McKenna.

"We haven't really played with any structure in the forward unit, that's probably the best way of putting it. There's been a flood of guys who probably have suffered because we haven't played with six attackers," the 35-year-old outlines.

"And some of those guys have obviously fallen away and aren't on the panel anymore. That's probably not all their own fault. If I'm honest, it's just the way the system, or the type of football, has gone. Some of those type of players have suffered.

"Some of those guys I would have called marquee, and thought they would be marquee. But because they never had that room to breathe and because some of them couldn't cope with having to spend more time on the bench, because we were going towards a certain type of player, they struggled.

"They were victims of the system, that's exactly what they were. It's sad that, because some of them have as much talent or possibly more talent than some of the older (guys), the guys that were on some of the older teams that myself and Conor played on.

"But they just haven't been given that opportunity to play, which is just tough. Quite a number of those players are forward players that have gone through confidence issues that if they'd been playing in a system that....you know, Tyrone naturally don't kick the ball much.

"And then being pulled ashore and fall down the pecking order. They're all there and you should see some of the stuff they do at training but unfortunately they don't have the confidence or don't have the... are maybe not stuck with the same way when the game would be 15 v 15.

"When things aren't going well there's a temptation for Mickey to go for a different style of player, a style of player that works hard and labours around the midfield and that can run the ball quick through the hands."

some of the players would need to grow a set and speak up when they're in the squad  before running off to RTE.

Sean Cavanagh is obviously doing the whole, lets burst onto the punditry scene with some attention seeking views.

Haven't really been a fan of some of his antics over the years to be honest, but it's bound to be extremely gauling for Mickey Harte to hear him say this on the eve of the Championship.

Maybe payback time for how Harte hung him out in his second book, practically blamed Cavanagh for losing to Cork in 2009 when he cried off sick
