What's the story with Conan Grugan & Ciaran McGinley for 2015 season. Reportedly both have pulled out for personal reasons making them unavailable - can anyone shed any light on this please. Both lads will be missed in an very important year ahead - it is a big make or break year for Tyrone !!!

McGinley working in England as far as I'm aware. No word why Grugan has walked away. Thought it was a big year for this year in terms of development - felt if he was ever going to that now was the time to make the break through. Has appeared to me to lack a we bit of hunger when I've saw him play which I felt was holding him back but he has plenty of talent and still relatively young.

Good game this Sunday to get the season up and running.

Grugan no big loss in my opinion.

Do they announce the line ups for the McKenna Cup in advance or is it on the day?

See Peter Canavan has got himself involved with the Under 21 set up.  Is he positioning himself for the senior post next year when Micky's term comes to an end?
Living the dream!!!

I think they normally do name the team in advance for McKenna Cup - maybe just with new years they havent done so for this match. Are you waiting patiently to hear if Cathal McShane will be starting?

Still no word on why Grugan pulled out? This could have been a huge year for him.

Mc Carron starts on Sunday. I have a few reservations about this.

Think the future for Sean is FF. Won his POY from there in 08 and with his pace dropping a little he would extend his playing time by another few years.

Would have preferred a more experimental panel / line up. Beating Armagh at this stage of the year is neither here nor there. Nice if it happens, no biggie if not. Finding new players us far more important.

Is Dan mcNulty injured?

I have been told that has taken the year out to improve his own conditioning and bulk up.
Although im sure he could of done this while on the panel.

It might not be overly experimental in terms of new players but the majority of the team are not yet established successful county players. A lot of new players have been brought in during recent years and now is the time for them to step up. The likes of mcnamme got his place last year but still needs games at the level to continue to improve.

I'm also glad to see cavanagh up to full forward. We have really lacked ball winners in the forward line in recent years and cavanagh and mattie d are 2 players who could improve this from last year. Looking forward to seeing how mcnulty goes in midfield. Tyrone really need options there.

Hopefully Padraig McNulty gets a run of games and gets a chance to get to grips with county football. It's a big step up for him but he has all the required attributes to be a big success. My fear is he'll have one mediocre game and never been seen again.
That was never a square ball!!
