If it was up to me I'd give him 3 more years to develop this new team as we've came through a long period of change and are hopefully coming out the other side with a new energetic young team. Whereas teams like Donegal and Mayo are seeing a lot of their older players reaching the age to retire.
I was reading that we only have 5 players from 2010 team; Sean, Colm, Justy, Petey and McCarron.
Do you think Leenie he should retire after 2017 if we don't win Sam?
he should stick to football and leave the other stuff to clergy men. And use a few forwards!
Your first point is nothing to do with management or football. Your second point shows your absolute lack of knowledge of the modern or game or quality of current tyrone panel.
I still think he needs a semi final and a performance this year to retain the job.
I'd agree with this.
The last two seasons have brought a bit of expectancy so we will need to kick on this year. We were a bit unlucky with how the QF draw went for us, I always think the team coming through the back door have a slight advantage over the provincial winner at this stage. I think our QF record is much better coming through the qualifier route than it is the Provincial route and even at that it was small margins that decided it.
QF Provinicial route is
P6 W2 L4
QF qualifer route is
P5 W4 L1
We just happened to draw by far the toughest team we could have and lost on the narrowest of margins this year but the expectancy will be an All Ireland semi-final this year and I think we will need to be competitive with Dublin up until the last kick of the game.
Kerry have got some very handy QF draws in recent years, they generally have a lot of bother in this round if they get a pretty decent side pitted against them.
2013 - Cavan
2014 - Galway
2015 - Kildare
2016 - Clare
Hopefully we'll get a bit of luck this year in a decent QF draw should we get there.
