Kyle Coney calls it a day.

Never really worked out for him at senior level but he was some player underage.
Wonder will any of the other boys cut from the panel call it retirement as well.

He would be 30 if I'm guessing correctly. He could be involved yet if the latest injury rumour is true on the senior panel.

Kyle bags of talent, but similar to Lee Brennan in that I just don't think he has the pace or work ethic for county level.

Apparently another bad injury for God's son. If true that lad has had nothing but bad luck on the injury front.

Coney is an excellent player.

Probably a victim of playing styles. Look at how he plays for Ardboe, deep playmaker controlling then bursting through. Then look at when he comes in for Tyrone, wing forward and has to track some GPS burster. It must be hard to adapt no matter how good you are when you rarely play in what is your favourited position?

I wonder does he regret not staying with the Swans.

Is there a roll for that type of player in the gaa now i.e. a 'free spirit' who just does their own thing and floats all over the final third?

If he's good enough there is. You could say Clifford or any top marksman will be given that license. But if you're given that license you're going to be targetted by the opposition and that's what was Coney's flaw for me. He didn't like the heat and if you're a top player playing at the top level then you're going to get dogged. McManus, Murphy, Clifford etc they all get that treatment and what separates the elite level players and those below them is if they can still perform with that.

What's the word on young Canavan so? As long as it's not the ACL, then hopefully he can come back this year to play a part. We've seen it before with the likes of Ronan O'Neill and Conor Clarke how an ACL can end during the early part of your career.

Loaded with attacking options atm, they can certainly cover an injury without having to resort to calling players back in who they’ve cut from the panel.
Injury to canavan has the potential to provide more game time for Tiarnan Quinn and Paul Donaghy. So could be a big opportunity for them.

Indeed +1

On a different note, I read Damian Casey, Tyrone's premier hurler giving the CB a trimming in Saturdays IN. The hurling county team haven't a manager in place yet, it is nothing short of a scandal for the CB, and to use Covid as an excuse is further example of the disrespect they pay Gaels. Do they think we are fools. Didn't take them long to sort the football management out, covid didn't feck that up. And to use it for the reason not to have a hurling manager, wtf. What is also alarming is that this is the first comment on this thread. These hurling clubs have been keeping the great small ball game alive  in Tyrone county, they could at least get some help from the officials who are charged with promoting the game. To say he has never used the main changing room in Garvaghey is unbelievable. Are Tyrone hurlers the Kilkenny version their football team. I never played the game but I just can't get over why they have to be so badly treated, why?

Did you ever think nobody wanted the job (at the rate going, these days)?

It's not uncommon in the weaker hurling counties in the North.

Mattie Lennon, according to Casey, has serious problems too with the county board.  He says that the previous administrstion was very good.

By the way, D. Casey is some hurler. Would walk on to any team in Ireland fantastic talent.]
