If people don't like Mickey Harte, they're entitled to their opinion and there's plenty of Tyrone fans who feel he's stayed on too long.

But what really bothers me is the utterly toxic nonsense posted at the beginning of the season by a certain poster about Tyrone footballers. According to him, three players, whom I won't bother naming, had all jumped ship, and each and every post on that theme turned out to be unfabricated nonsense. At least treat the players with a bit of common decency.

If STG has a dislike of Harte its his prerogative is it not? If we were clubmen of men who in their eyes had been shafted then perhaps we'd feel the same way.

Harte certainly has opinions on things outside of GAA which could sour a person's opinion of him. But other than that, to see how he has dealt with a lot of unfortunate incidents down through the years is completely unprecedented in the GAA. Paul McGirr , Cormac and then his own daughter. I'm no big fan of religion, but to go through all them ordeals and to still have a strong unwavering faith is something else.

Maybe Monaghan beat us and Harte resigns, who knows but it will never be taken from him that he led us to 3 All-irelands in 6 years.

lads lets be honest about it. harte has stumbled through this championship. the players deserve all the credit and in reality its the great work done by peter donnelly that has us in the semi. we still dont have a single trophy so show for our efforts this year but at least we are in with a chance of the big one. i have every faith that we have the players to do it. thought we were bang average yesterday though until mickeys favourite player lee brennan came on and totally changed the game. also special mention to colly cavanagh, amazing performance.

I used to think you were a wind up but itís become obvious who you are and this crap deserves challenged. On the one hand you want to heap absolute criticism on Mickey harte for any defeats or things that go wrong. And then when things go right you say itís down to the players and peter Donnelly. Surely any man with a bit of sense can realise how stupid this is.

Eugene McKenna was a fantastic player and a great servant to Tyrone. Perhaps things werenít handled 100 hundred per cent perfectly in autumn 2002 but given Tyrone won the all Ireland the next year no one can question harteís appointment.

Mickey harte has won and done so much for this county and deserves far more respect from many people than he gets. He has continued to deliver teams capable of competing at the very top year on year.

Bringing personal grievances about Harte into a GAA forum and dressing it up as comments on his contribution to Tyrone GAA and ability as a football manager is just cowardly. Most people here want to discuss football matters but manyís a debate has ended up in a few lads throwing personal abuse at  the manager. I blocked STG a few weeks ago but still see his posts on those who quote him. Heís admitted that itís not about Harte the manager, it is about Harte the man - well I personally couldnít give a flying fcuk what anyoneís personal views on people are. This is a football thread and not a bitching thread...Hartes decisions have been criticised here and rightly so by the more logical posters and debate on that is great. However some of the personal stuff just has no place on a county gaa forum and thankfully itís died down as Mickey once again has managed to silence alot of the critics.
That was never a square ball!!

Nothing to do with the West v east thing. I'm from the East and I couldn't be a bigger admirer of the man, as many of us down in the lowlands are!

There's alot of us from down in East Tyrone and believe me it doesn't come into it. We like to see the county doing well. If everyone has worked out who STG is then grow a set and name him?

Harte loyalists out in force this weather after beating Dublin and winning our fourth All Ireland! ... Oh wait a minute.. Firstly I don't give too F#cks if someone named me on here or not, I mean whats gonna happen? Anyway on to Harte. Firstly I was happy to see him get the job back in 02 because he did deserve it after all the underage success. Eugene Mckenna did bring Tyrone their first National title and was unfortunate for him not to stay but Mickey was the lucky one to get it. Never once up until 2010 did I question him in the job. After cork in 2009 I said we will give it one more year Mickey and then the job should be given to someone else. Of course Harte was never gonna walk away cos the Tyrone senior job is far too prestigious and this would be like handing over my beautiful girlfriend to another man. That's unfortunately the mentality we have to deal with since 2011 were power and control is all consuming. Sure enough Mickeys hung in there and may have the talent now to win another one. We will see.

I am taken aback by the amount of people from Tyrone who want them beat on Saturday and as many who couldn't care less if they win or not. Is anyone else finding that?

How many Tyrone people told you that they wanted Tyrone beaten on Saturday?

Dunno maybe 8 or 9 and many more who said they couldn't care less
.

8 or 9. Lol you made it sound a lot more you twit.   And they all formed an orderly queue to tell you this did they ?
IL be hoping for a Meath win on Saturday. Let's just call it tough love.

Letís take a moment to enjoy this quote from theBigDog. Do you hope we get beaten this Sunday?

No he'll be scuttling to his club this week to ask for a lower hogan ticket because it's starting to get to the serious end of the championship. Big Tyrone man he is!

Did you get your accounts mixed up and think you were logging in as Southtyronegael? Why do you need two accounts to say the same things anyway?

Right lads leave STG to it, he will no doubt be back in force if we get beat sunday or the final. I think its fairly established himself and a few others are absolute clowns who take it too far!

I questioned mickey after the monaghan game as same mistakes seemed to be happening. But he deserves plenty of credit for where he has got us.

Looking forward to Sunday, it feels very surreal to be in an AI semi so soon!

I feel the same so far in the championship We have failed one major test v Monaghan.... we expected to win all the rest of the qualifier games and we did, we expected to beat Roscommon and Get beat by Dublin and this happened.....Next big Major test v Donegal we passed with some ease at the finish up.....So all in so far after Monaghan defeat we would have took your arm off to be in the Semi Final on Sunday so i am happy enough... I have said all along,If we dont get to the All Ireland final if we avoid Dublin it would be very disappointing.... So Sunday is a big day for all concerned and i think we have improved enough to win!!

Interesting to see what lads think the matchups will be this weekend? Who is your replacement for Meyler (if unavailable). One worrying aspect is how badly cleaned out around the middle we were in HP. Do we bring a bigger man in there to try and stifle the Monagahn kickout? I am also of the belief that Beggan can be got at. He has had a fantastic year, however I think he is flaky. Both his shot stopping and comfort under the high ball are average IMO.
