Cavanagh needs to be deployed in the area he has excelled in over the last few years. I don't thing he has the legs to be going from box to box for 70 minutes and Tyrone badly need him protecting a weak defence.

I think Burns, McDonnell, McKernan and McCann (going to be suspended anyway) would be 4 players I'd definitely be dropping after that performance.

Anyone know if Meyler is injured. I'd struggle to comprehend how he couldn't make our matchday 26 if fit.

Meyler done his quad the week of the Derry game (5 weeks ago). Would expect there is a good chance he will be back for Longford.

That's fair enough

Providing we have more or less a full contingent for Longford I would go along the lines of:

1. Morgan
2. Hampsey
3. McNamee
4. HP McGeary
5. Cassidy
6. Brennan
7. Meyler
8. Cavanagh
9. Kennedy
10. R Donnelly
11. Harte
12. K McGeary
13. McCurry
14. McShane
15. M Donnelly

I'd give Kennedy another go but I wouldn't be adverse to throwing Grugan in though I was disappointed with his impact against Antrim. I wouldn't be HP McGeary's biggest fan but I think either he or McCrory will give the defence a little more focus on what they are actually there to do. Cavanagh should revert back to his usual sweeping role. I'd like to see McGeary sitting deep around the centre half back position as he is the best tackler by a mile in the squad - he seems to be about the only player who knows how to get his body in the way legally that we have.

I thought McCurry looked sharp and hungry off the bench and took some nice scores and we need more finishers in the team, we've lost a few recently and the options on the bench are not good in this regard. McShane is a huge plus from last year, we finally seem to have a guy who can win it any which way and despite a frustrating day the last day, both Marty Clarke and Oisin McConville were both waxing lyrical about how good his movement is.

I'd try and keep Mattie as far up the pitch as possible as he can be so frustrating in how he slows the play up from deep at times. I'd try and play Harte a bit deeper as he adds more urgency to the play than Donnelly does and Donnelly is probably a better ball winner up top.

The Longford game really has to be about finding our defensive shape and stability again, the three Championship games so far we have been caught out time and time again and if we fix this for the Longford game, any shock will be off the cards - we don't and who knows what might happen.

I also hope the absolute mess that we were on both our own kickouts and even moreso the oppositions is rectified. Has we any sort of presence on the Donegal kickouts last week we could still have turned around that game despite how big of a mess we were and how badly some of key men performed.

There's a lot of knee jerk reaction on here, with good reason after that shambles and it's well within our capability to turn it around and hopefully if the qualifier draw is kind (avoiding Mayo and Monaghan) we will be back in the Super 8s.

Dont think your too far away there

I dunno about Kennedy tho, he's got potential for sure but I think the lad needs a gentler introduction than he has had, which is actually why a start against Longford could be beneficial for him.

Maybe that is what they needed.....

Hampsey has a back problem(pelvis) that needs a op....That would maybe explain his form....never trained last week due to this problem....

Didn't say there was anything wrong with it. Just they had been told by harte before the game that they weren't allowed to.

A night out is known as team bonding good to see that they enjoyed themselves.

Winners like him would not admit that injury is as bad as it is...IMO...He would have done his upmost to convince management he was good to go...

without knowing the exact details of the injury but imo if this is the case it shows the whole set up is nowhere near a professional as it is being made out - take the decision out of his hands, get him the op now before more damage is done playing hurt and then running into the club season and either not fit to play for them or doing more damage having to play. He is vital long-term get him sorted now and recovered right, next man up - shit happens move on

Interesting to see five teachers on the Tyrone panel running a 2 day 'tyrone summer school' in garvaghy at 50 quid a head.
