Mickey showing massive faith in Ronan O'Neill. Am I right in thinking he started every match? Didn't show a pile on Wednesday night.
Giving him enough rope to hang himself id imagine

I actually thought O'Neill worked his socks off on Wednesday. Didn't contribute a huge amount on the scoresheet but definitely the hardest I've seen him work in a Tyrone jersey. I'd still question his physical condition but.

Nothing 5-6 weeks won't cure.

Is that him in condition? Looks similar to last year in the championship, never looks the fittest from afar.

Played for the under 20s last year.
Must be near 6ft5. He dwarfs Conan Grugan who must be 6ft2 or 3 himself

Always nice to get the win over Derry. Poor enough game overall but typical of January fare. Very slow start to the game but finished the half well.

Brought Darragh Canavan and Petey Harte into the FF line in place of Brennan (didn't get into game at all) and Ronan O'Neill (actually thought he was doing alright, TBF).

Petey is a class act and really led the line well. Interestingly, he more or less stayed in the FF all the time. Gave Chrissy McKeigue his absolute full of it when they came together.

Young Canavan done well when he came on, scored an absolute beauty by throwing a drop shoulder dummy to get space and put it over. Won a free too when bravely went in for a dodgy ball. Only issue would be he tried too hard to be tricky at some stages and tied himself up a bit but we'll not complain about that as he's trying to make things happen.

Big thing for me so far this year is young Kennedy. He is absolutely flying. Early stages yet but you could see him making a big impact this year. He's a huge unit. At one stage McAtanamy (no small man) was tearing up the line, Kennedy stopped him dead in his tracks by just meeting him chest to chest. McAtanamy dropped to the ground then got blown up for over carrying. He won loads of high ball and has great pace when moving with the ball for a big man.

Any word on the two Donnelly's? McAliskey was togged out today again, wonder when he'll be good to go?

Just going through the Tyrone GAA Twitter feed and was seriously confused, is it a parody account?

No surprise. Any specific balls ups or just in general?

Tyrone have strength in numbers beating a better Derry team than in recent years with only a few players from AI final game. Does anyone have any other comments on the game?

Was in Armagh today,Kennedy I thought was MoM I couldnít see how Pete Harte got it whilst only on for 2nd half, Kyle Coney looks to be in great shape and got on a lot of ball,he could make the difference this year

Unresl how he didn't get the motm award!

Kyle is looking good at the minute. The only question is will he have the extra gears required for the hard ground in croker come August? He isn't blessed with great pace. However, it's great to see him moving the ball long via the foot pass. They don't all come off but could be a big weapon to get quality ball into our forward line in the summer.

Would big Kennedy be useful round the square for 10 minutes here and there?
