I heard the general consensus amongst the players where that they didn't want to turn their backs to Cathal McCarron - well I suppose would you??

Mc Carron was at the fitness tests in Cookstown.  What worries me is that we cant even hold our fitness testing in the multi million pound 'Centre of Excellence'  :-\ :-\

Looking fwd and putting all the above aside I feel the introduction of Peter Donnelly to the Tyrone setup will bring great change.  A born leader, winner, captain and now - excellent trainer he can only help Tyrone.  I Believe we still have the talent, that there is no doubt but we must add steel, grit and will to win.  All of which Donnelly will bring to the table.  He will not accept excuses from the current bunch which I believe there to be plenty...Conditioning is crucial in the modern game and Donnelly will provide a fresh approach to that.  I fancy us to give it a real rattle this year.

Is there a Carmen clear out? Our two fellas went through the fitness test but no word of Michael Cassidy. Surely he must be in line for a call up shortly?

Was there not talk of Mattie Donnelly walking away or never playing in the same team as Mc Carron ever again???????

I have it on good authority that Mickey Donnelly is to be ratified as minor manager for another year. Croke Park must have ruled in his favour.

Assuming this will be brought before the county committee on Tuesday night.
It is what it is. Presumably.

I suspect that he will climb down from this threat and continue his county career.

Mickey Donnelly was in the big house on the hill last night running fitness tests. He does not need to be ratified. He is already in place doing the job.

Anyone know of names Harte has approached to join the squad? Niall Sludden has to be a certainty to get on the panel this year. If he does I've not a doubt in my mind he'll be in the starting team come summer. Class act.

Patrick Quinn and Padraig McNulty bound to get a call up after their performance for dungannon in this years championship.
Dwayne Quinn also worth a trial along with the two sluddens.

Never did like the thrash talk but as Dromore were the worst for it, can hardly complain now if McCarron gets it. Like who sets the rules on how low it can go, certainly not some of his team-mates...

Just think Bradley may have the same problem as McCurry has to an extent - his size. He will be very small for Senior intercounty footbal but an excellent inside forward he is, no doubt in that. I'd give any defender who looks half decent a trial because other than Aidy McCrory our full back line was woeful last year. I think thats 99% of the reason McCarrons back in the fold. Drastic times/drastic measures and all that. Also would leave Ruari Sludden to focus on U21s. Don't think he's ready for intercounty senior yet and a good year with U21s would be more beneficial to him probably than being on the fringe of our senior panel. Same goes for most of our U21s, let the lads focus on their own grade and those who show up best get drafted into the panel? Seems to me a reasonable idea.

ruari sludden was kicked of the u21 panel last year,maybe he has changed this year but I don't think he has the right mentality for county football.remember you have to nearly train 4/5 nights a week.niall sludden should get a look at for sure
