Colm hasn't exactly been praising Harte in recent interviews (not that he has to, I'm sure they spoke on the phone after the retirement decision) but I'm sure he is embarrassed in a way at Big Sean using his name for publicity again. 

Agree with Angelo, looking forward to the under 20s more so than the Seniors, deserve to see that Championship read up at least - would be great to beat the Dubs

Mark Bradley bound to be near a starting place after his performances for club particularly vs Trillick

U20s ran out of gas earlier.

Dublin looked much fitter and more physically developed.

Their backs were able to bomb forward at will and had our forwards trailing in their wake as they ran it out from the back.

Think the real difference was between the two teams approaches to each others kick outs. Every time Dublin had a kick out they were able to get it started off nice and short with little pressure from the Tyrone forwards. In contrast the Tyrone keeper was forced to hit it long pretty much every time as Dublin pushed up really aggressively on the kickouts. That may boil back to fitness though as to keep that type of press up for an entire game takes great energy.

Think we had a lot more quality in our forwards than Dublin. Quinn, Canavan and Jordan have great quality that will hopefully transfer to the seniors in the coming years. Both Quinn and Canavan really dropped out of the game in the second half though. Fox was also a big loss in the defence.

Probably the second year in a row we have left an AI SF behind us at this level though.

That was some roaring the Dubs did on every Tyrone kick out in the second half.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

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.
