Well Tyrone will be confident no matter how limited they think these minors are because they more often than not get the better of us at underage level.
The one think that might stand to us is we often perfrom well in minor finals like in 2008 & 2009 and don't seem to collapse to the same degree as the seniors have in recent times.
It is minor level though and while we have performed well in all the games up to this but our minors haven't faced any real defensive teams bar Monaghan last time out and their defensive system was fairly rudementry compare to Tyrone's counter attack game (they haven't played a blanket defence since the Kerry semi in 2003 but don't let the bar stool experts know that
) which might swamp our attacking wing backs?
We have tons of firepower up front but like most minor teams they can shoot on sight from crazy angles if under pressure and if Tyrone push Burns into midfield from the start Val Roughneen and O Connor could struggle.
It should be a titanic battle between McKenna and Coen on the forty.
I think Goals will as always be vital and Mayo have average nearly 3 (2.8 to be exact) per game so if we hit our average again I think we should do it but will we have the patience to break down Tyrone because it can be taken as a given they will have the composure to wear us down with plenty of attacking skill to throw into the mix too!
