I only take positives from last night. All returning players looked sharp and hungry, coney looks in good nick maybe he feels he has a score to settle which can only be good for tyrone.

Also a kick in the @ss for last years squad.

Canavan looks very classy, if nothing else he is a joy to watch when he gets the ball.

Have a good Christmas looking forward to see how the team progresses in the new year

It was obviously only a glimpse at Canavan but he looks to have his da's brain if nothing else. There was one time he caught a ball with 2 men bundling him over in the process, for a mark. Instead of taking the handy option he made a beautiful offload to O'Neill (I think) for a goal chance.

Thought of the new fellas Kennedy looked like he could get a starting jersey. Of the returnees I actually thought McCurry was MOTM ahead of Coney but I appear to be in a minority of one on that thought.

WRT to the establishment I thought Meyler was superb. He's like a Duracell bunny! Morgan appears to be following the Beggan/ Gallen school and on 2 or 3 occasions he joined in the play outfield. He also looks to have established a new, less fussy placed kick and he's 2 x 45s sailed over the bar very comfortably.

Why are you comparing Canavan Jr with Clifford?

Clifford had just kicked something stupid like 4 goals in the All Ireland Minor Final, it's natural to come straight into your senior side from then.

Darragh Canavan has played about 4 senior games. That's not to say he's not a talent, obviously. But comparing them as players is a no contest at minor level.

Did you see Darragh’s performance in the U17 final a few years ago? Was there a better u17 in Ireland that year?

I don't think you are getting the point, I'm not saying he's not a good player. Far from it. I'm saying he's played very, very little senior club football, take into account there'll be someone who'll love to take a slap at him.

There have been very few players ever, to go straight from minor/u17 whatever that are able to slot straight into a senior intercounty team. The jump is enormous, most players who shine at underage level, shine because they have a physical edge, be it speed/size/power that is instantly neutralised once they make the step up to senior level.

Perhaps this lad will be the McBrearty/Coulter figure from Tyrone but I just think it's a massive risk to be throwing him straight into the lions when really, there is no need just yet.

It would not surprise me to see him drop back to the U20s after the McKenna Cup. Throwing him in now gets rid of all the hype and pressure whenever he's thrown back in next year or whenever.

Time will tell but I don’t think it’s unfeasible to be calling up a guy who was the best player on an u17 all Ireland winning team two years ago. But sure maybe it’s all a plan to get the u20 manager sacked.
That was never a square ball!!

I couldn't even tell you who that is to be perfectly honest so I'm not into some sort of conspiracy. I think Norf Tyrone has probably hit the nail on the head with his prior post.

Thought Ruairi Sludden was very good last night. He certainly stood out as the type of forward Tyrone has been missing.

Any online highlights lads?

Highlights of plenty of scores on BBC NI website. Some great points by the look of it. Meaningless game but good to see the quality of the new/returning players on show.

Yeah, he has another lad around 15 or so. Saw him play against Lough u14s last year. Looked some player that day.

What did yiz make of Sean's book?

I thought it was fairly honest and didn't hold back, especially towards the end.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Grand like. Alot of mistakes in it though, you can tell it was wrote by a biographer from notes. Alot of "we played X in the quarter final" when it was Y.

That’s very poor if true!
