Agree on McCurry - he looks much leaner this season and his workrate has been fantastic to date.

With Donnelly & McShane up top getting a lot of the attention McCurry could be the man

A lot of talk about donnelly on the board considering he hasn't touched leather this season, no guarantee he will be the same animal as last season. Although i do hope he reaches the same heights.

Fingers crossed but it's a very worrying injury alright but Mattie seems to be the type of lad who will take his rehab extremely seriously.

What about R. Donnelly and C. McShane together?

The minor semi final against Roscommon in 2013 when he pretty much beat them on his own was one of the best individual displays I've seen.

Think he was minor again the following year.

If he fulfils his potential before he left then yes he is better than McShane.

However that is a big IF given he has been away for so long

He was a better footballer than McShane, alot has changed since then and McShane is a different player now.

It has but McKenna is coming back (if he stays) as a rare success story in the AFL. He's still only 23 and has not had any major injury worries.

It might take him a year or two to settle back into the game but I've no doubt if he comes back and stays injury free then he will be one of the top players in the country in the next two years. Physically and athletically he is a monster, he has searing pace that our team currently doesn't really have and a huge engine. The amount of ground he covers is staggering.

McKenna coming back would be a BIG boost.

He adapted very quickly to AFL and debuted at the age of 18/19, so you would think he could adapt back to football quickly? Having a forward line including McKenna, McShane, Harte and Donnelly suddenly looks VERY dangerous. Assuming he is a starter, you still have Sludden, McGeary, McCurry, Meyler, Bradley and others to throw in to to the mix.

Potentially exciting times...

Why is he home? Unless there is a private matter then surely he will be away back to Oz in a month or 2. Joining the real world of work and fitting in football and shite weather in Ireland might cure his homesickness.

Eglish matters. And Tyrone. He can go back once the ultimate prize in his life is won.
