Was Paul Donaghy called up?

No
Extremely bizarre and disgraceful that someone who hasnt played gaelic in like 6 or 7 years, since he was 18, gets called into the county panel instead of someone who scored like fcuk in the championship..

I'd assume he's waiting to call up Players from Clubs until the new season.

If Conor McKenna wasn't home, there'd likely have been no additions to the squad.

Think those who are in line for next year are in a wider panel right now. GAA rules say you can only have a panel of 32. McKenna is a direct replacement for Cavanagh. All very hush hush to be honest as most of them with Covid aren't exactly meant to be training.

conflicted feelings on the u-20ís, on the plus side your in a AI semi and are in the mix of the best in the country (albeit a fairly messed up year) and to be fair to Dublin they where more physically developed and athletic so when they stepped it up a more lightweight and 1 dimensional tyrone had no answer. The most frustrating thing personally was that the amount of poor decisions & kick passing ( particularly into 1 & 2 sweepers) was poor viewing, still would only pick 2 or 3 to have any impact on the senior panel, where in an ideal world you would want at least 5 to be putting their hands up

Can't help but think we.threw that away yesterday. Again lost on line. Was it not 2 or 3 years ago devlin played a few sweepers in a minor championship game against Derry when trailing quite significantly.

Ethan Jordan could probably physically fit in straight away to the seniors.....Harte would have him roaded if he tried that kick passing though.

Feel sorry for the u20s. It was there for them, few men missing, they might have held on if they had been there.

Is it correct that 14 of the dubs team are eligible next year?.

By my judging I would say at least 7 or 8 players have put their hands up of that under 20 team. That's not including murnaghan or conroy. So if we were to get another 3 out them 7/8 it wouldn't be far away from your 5 players

Not too many players step straight in out of u20 level anymore.

Even if you look at the 2015 U21 team, it took guys like McGeary, Burns an Hamspey a while to establish themselves and the extra year can make a whole lot of difference.

There's certainly a good number of those that played yesterday good enough for seniors but I'd say that in the physical levels, they are all probably a year or two short.

Quinn and Grimes came in from last years u20 side for this campaign but I'd say it will probably be another year or two until we see them challenging strongly for starting spots.

No chance he came home without assurances on his spot and role in County Panel. Wonder if he actually plays half forward.

Big pressure on getting the two points today with the way Mayo are going at the minute against Galway. Could come down to a relegation play off effectively next weekend v Mayo if we donít get the win today.

Big pressure on both Tyrone and Donegal  to get points today. Should make for a good game. I see the half of errigal on the bench today.

That's not the first time McKernan has gone running towards a guy coming through like a bull in a china shop and left them a big gap to run into. The signs were there last year, the Donegal game, against Cork where if teams run down the middle at us then there are goals to be got.

We badly need a no 6 who can hold the middle and organise the defence a bit better.
